    Lol you give us 10 points for the foul differential but dismiss a 3 point loss as being on the coaching just because they were seeded lower? Ok sure

    While the officiating was terrible, we lost this game because of a ridiculous amount of sloppy turnovers and very poor coaching from Mike White. Too often our players just look aimless on offense, we stand around for 20 seconds then Jack up some terrible shot. We all blamed Nembhard last year for slow play but if you watch Gonzaga they are anything but slow. Clearly this is a Mike White thing and will not stop as long as White is the coach. UF will just be a borderline tourney team as long as he is our coach.

    My main issue with the refs were the fouls they DIDNT call. A couple times our guys got literally blown up on loose balls (one time leading to a layup), yet they called some ticky tack stuff on us several times. Including offensive fouls (adding to our turnovers). You’d think it was a FL @ UK game.

    That being said, we had like 20 turnovers and despite some hot shooting, both offensive and defensive gameplans were hot garbage. Trey Mann being on fire is the only reason we had a lead. Without him hitting step back 3’s and stuff that would normally be I’ll advised, our offense reverts to the trash we’ve seen for years now. Billy D used to bench guys for taking the bad 1 on 1 shots we now rely on. Think about that.

    So Osifo who is way less talented offensively gets his minutes?? Did you see Osifo blow the front end of that one on one? Duruji had a great first half then barely played the second half.

    We hear that every season. He will get a hard pass for this season because of not having KJ. He clearly got out coached this game. Congrats to ORU, they played it smart down the wire and stole a victory away from Florida.

    He can't afford a T in that game. Mike coached a game that had us on pace to set a shooting record. He is who he is, but his team was the better team. Outside of FT's we dominated them. Did White take away three possessions on moving screen calls? Did Mike elbow TA in the head? Did mike go up for a 50/50 ball and get called for the foul like AD did? What about the block shot where they stripped TA and the ref gave the ball to ORU? Terrible stuff man.

    I get that Mike has holes, but his team was better. His game plan was better.

    I’m not even upset honestly. We aren’t a good team and it was lose now or against Arkansas. This team never had a run in them.

    It was a very poorly officiated game.

    We need a coach that will work the refs to take up for his players. Also, a coach that will have his players adjust to the way that the game is being called.

    Why did not Mann and others drive to the basket to try to get to the free throw line more often, too? After a terrific start to the 2nd half, Mann seemed to disappear and did not have too many offensive attempts himself. Part of it may be was that Mann was running the offense to try to set up others and he did not think offense for himself, too.

    What a lost opportunity for this team; especially, when UF was leading & winning in most of the game.

    I’m outtie before all the complainers take over completely. Tough, awful loss amplified by what I feel was a complete job by the refs, and I’m going to disengage for a bit. Go Gators.

    Refs were terrible but better coached teams usually find a way to win these types of games-when we went up 11 MW went into the basketball version of the prevent
