    It must be good being coach White. Influx of talent, top 10 recruiting class and absolutely the best transfer class, possibly ever? (At UF)

    While I have not had the pleasure to meet Mike personally it's
    easy for me to believe he is a genuinely good guy to be around.

    He's young, handsome, well spoken and has an awesome resource in his father to assist him in negotiating the pit falls of this profession.

    I'm just really proud of what he was able to "salvage" from last year and what he has put together for this season.

    Dare I say it? I'm beginning to finally "get-over" BD departure.
    (I know I'm pathetic - I'm still in mourning over SOS leaving … lol)

    Anyway I'm excited over the direction of the program and our coach!

    CMW has probably had the best offseason of any UF coach in at least a decade, and that's huge from a program development, player development, and fan excitement point of view. (I hope our football team gets a similarly good offseason sometime soon.)

    That's a good observation. It's nice to get a great off-season for a change.

    CMW is the speaker at the Ocala Gator Tip Off Club Annual Banquet, he was part of the program last year and always makes at least one of our lunch meetings and host our club for a preseason practice. He has always been frank when answering questions at any time, he seems genuinely friendly and loves being a Gator. Ran into him at VB, stopped for a few minutes to chat definitely hard working and easy to like.

    Great to see Will on campus. Did Billy have a kid to play any harder that Will? Wish that knee hadn't set him back.

    I think Billy got as much out of Will as a coach could get. Such an awesome complimentary player..… unselfish, yeoman on the boards, every good team has a Will Yeguete.

    VB - Vacation Bible School? That’s all I could think of.

    Mike, I just bought my "40-0" shirt. Don't let me down.



    Unless you plan on buying it back if you lose once. That would be fine also. Just make sure that loss isn't the last game.:mad::mad::mad:

    Good interview of CMW.

    He doesn’t say it, it his “refreshing” comment makes clear we have had some personality, work ethic and chemistry issues in the recent past.

    I agree and it makes me think more and more about how valuable K Hayes was the second half of the season, we know how fast lockerrooms can go sour and from all I have heard/read he was the guy that did whatever was needed o keep the team afloat

    Loved, loved, that video. Full of energy, and you can tell he is just a positive person. I really think this team is going to be special.

    hope he is the sparkplug because the team as a whole is not a rah rah type group and if he is the one to get the motors running it will be a big shot in the arm

    Scottie sure does have a magnetic personality. We need to enjoy him this season
