    Crucial. We saw it coming. Haven't seen a personality and fire like him since Noah. Our team needs him. I hope he is our lightning rod.

    Yep, I would like to see Lewis get more opportunities in the pick n' roll to attack downhill with his athleticism.

    It was in his press conference and posted on floridagators.com after the loss to UConn. He said he does not talk to the team about rankings and outside expectations. When Nembhard spoke about things he had read, CMW said he was going to deal with the issues directly and begin to engage the team on performance vs expectations, etc. His concern was that games did not look like practice and he needed to discuss why with the team.

    He was excoriated on this board for the comments which were offered as proof he could not improve the offense.

    No one can deny the improvement over the past two games. I just hope that it doesn’t come to a halt vs. Xavier. 5-2 with a win over a ranked team feels worlds better than 4-3.

    I add my own :umm really" because the topic of this thread is eerily similar to the 15 year old boy bragging he lost his virginity and from here on out it's easy street because he got skills now.
    in other words stop blowing up the balloons and cancel the party favors until this team can be consistent on the court.

    Winning is what we all want but coming out of this tourney with an improved team is the biggest thing for me. So far we're off to a good start and we should actually be a little more rested than Xavier come game time tomorrow. Don't know if that really matters much with young guys but it could be a slight edge in a close game. When we start hitting on all cylinders we're going to be a tough matchup for anyone.

    How you deduced that from a thread titled, “I THINK it’s STARTING to gel”, I’ll never know.

    Either that or a commercial for hair products. Didn't take much to deduce from the title and responses that the rah rah campaign began prematurely.

    Yeah. God forbid, we ... as fans... recognize when the team plays well, and starts showing some signs of promise.
    Lol!

    Honestly, these loud demands for "apologies" from anyone who criticized Mike White every time we play a good game are so pathetic. He's a millionaire, guys. He can handle a few internet posters criticizing his offense.

    Without rereading the whole thread, who is demanding apologies?

    I haven’t seen apology demands, either. At least not that I recall.
    I’ve said the same you have.... I have no issue with a coach being critiqued, even if harshly. As you said, he gets paid the big bucks.
    There is, however, a poster or two who can make this board insufferable. But that’s on me and my stubbornness for not using the block feature.

    Some signs of life for sure, we'll see if we can do it against Xavier, an excellent defensive team. Certainly with KB in there the ball moves much better. I also like us finally putting him in high post area at FT extended and running O through him there. Nice additions to the O

    Though no one technically, those who have been critical of this team seem to be getting character shamed by a few since yesterday. Example #1.

    Yet it only took two games this year for you and other posters to start bitching and moaning about Coach White and how lousy he was and he was going to waste all this talent that he had recruited. Hypocritical much?????

    I hope we do well vs Xavier.
    Otherwise, I might have to have a Come-to-Jesus meeting with Coach White when I'm over there at Thanksgiving.
    Awkward.

    His stroke is fine, but he is going to have to adjust to the longer shot. He has so much arc in his shot at times, it’s practically like shooting an NBA three.
