    It’s time to get rid of Scott Stricklin.

    Fans of the 4-5 SEC schools that he will finish behind and the 2nd round opponent that he will lose to in 2026 rejoice! But 2027 will be our year when he finally runs a functional offense that can score points consistently.

    I’m less concerned about White or even Newbauer at this point than I am about the general direction of the athletic department. We seem to have moved pretty far from Foley’s championship level expectations. Think the program overall is suffering because of it.

    I believe this is Stricklin's new meme at NBN.

    The additional two years are largely meaningless.
    Just like he could be fired during the 4 years, so too could he be fired during the six.
    The extension is symbolic... meant to convey confidence and stability, so not to undermine recruiting.
    Nothing more, nothing less.

    I don’t think that the 2 of them are related, but you forced me to do some research. I discovered that The Florida Scott Stricklin is married to Bailey Howell’s daughter. Bailey is still alive. Considering that Bailey has forgotten more basketball than Stricklin has ever learned, I wonder if Bailey is in Strickin’s ear at all.

    Mullen and White both extended after rather unimpressive campaigns.

    Bad move extending White’s contract. SS is pretty much conceding the basketball program to mediocrity. Damn shame.

    well, for each year left on his contract he is owed x per year in the buyout if fired so it does increase the buyout just by increasing the years on his deal.

    Not necessarily. There are extensions that exclude, or even re-negotiate the buyout. I do not know the details in this scenario.

    Regardless, as I said earlier.... of all the things I concern myself with as a fan, UAA finances isn’t high on the list.

    I wouldn’t compare the 2. Mullen is an excellent coach, and he is succeeding in an extraordinarily tough conference.

    According to Eric, the buyout is $1.75 million times all of the remaining years on White's contract. In other words, it looks like we are going to have to be content with a middle of the pack SEC team.

    Buyout increased 250k each year of extension. You are right they have the money though I don’t want to get a call from the AD asking me for the extra 500K. Lol

    Mullen was close to a championship. Sort of. If nothing else at least it’s fun to watch. This past year was just an odd deal, one of our best offenses ever paired with our worst D. It’s frustrating that even an “average” D would have probably had us in the playoff. Maybe we missed the window, but given where our offense had been for so many years I’ll take that and hope the D gets back.

    White on the other hand hasn’t sniffed a championship, and has probably underachieved based on the talent he assembled on paper. It also largely is not fun to watch since our fundamentals at times are so poor (bad assist/turnover ratio, bad ball movement, bad spacing, etc). That is probably why he wasn’t given a raise, he had a just barely passable record (keeps sneaking into NCAAT based on talent) but also not good enough to lock him up with a longer deal.

    UF is going to be really good next year. Will be funny to watch the internal conflict of certain fans wanting to be right about Coach White being bad, but yet having to watch the team be successful.
