    I mean its certainly the most shocking positive result. No one saw a wounded team coming off a bad run, down 3 starters blowing out Tennessee.

    I cant think of a more impressive result.

    Did not see this coming.

    Yes, I think it has to be up there with White's most impressive wins. Missing so many key players and blew out the #6 team in the nation from start to finish.

    Considering the circumstances and lead-up.... one of my all time favorite performances.

    I follow the women more than the men in basketball, but I try to tune in often. I don't really have an opinion on Mike because I have seen some great moments and some really bad ones. This was impressive, so he can do it. Would like to see this with consistency. Don't see a change as a possibility for at least a year anyways.

    I was afraid when I turned it on that it would be over in the first half and it was pretty much over by mid way through the second half. Of course when it started I didn't think we would be the team that had put the game out of reach. I was hoping the Gators could hang close.

    Coming on top of a lot of negative things happening it could not have happened at a better time.

    I want to send a big Thank You out to the coaches and players.

    This night just keeps getting better as Bama is killing the cheating LSU kitties 30-8 early in the game.

    Not to take away from the point of this one but the 65-39 win over Virginia remains my most impressive Mike White win. Tennessee was just plain flat tonight, gotta admit. Having said that, this tops any win in terms of pure enjoyment. Watching Keyontae coaching up Lane on the sideline with the clipboard almost moved me to tears. The energy the players played with was inspiring. And I don't think I've ever been as proud of a team.

    Wow. Just wow. And not even close. I kept waiting for them to run clock prematurely, go conservative and get caught, say at the 7-minute mark. But those Gators just kept on coming. Great night to be a Gator BB fan.

    I don’t have cable so I followed on Twitter.

    I assume a National TV feed, with Vitale there. Good for our guys.

    Congrats to the Gators tonight. Proved me wrong. But I wouldn't be surprised at all if Mike White followed up " his most impressive win " with one of the " more disappointing losses " the next game against Georgia. That would be a very Mike White result. I hope the Gators prove me wrong but Mike White's teams have proven to be unpredictable for as long as he's been here.

    Loved the passion and freedom the guys played with. Never took their foot off the gas.

    Big reason for this win is their point guard is slow (and injured) opening up the dribble drive. Mikes offense needs a cat quick PG (cheese) or a slow D.

    I would say so based on the ranking of the opponent, and that we were down 3 starters, AND that it was needed just to stay above .500 in conference.

    That gets these guys the much needed “resume win”.

    That being said, I’ve trained myself not to get too high or low in the White era. His teams have tended to win when their backs are against the wall, then throw out some duds to put themselves right back on it. But given the roster situation, that was a mighty impressive W.

    The national TV feed would be better without Vitale.

    Nothing like some dumping some water on the thread. Guess enjoying the win longer than 30 minutes would be too much.

    Play Omar. He may be out of position at times but he protects the rim. Pair him with CC. Appleby is our point guard. He gets all the minutes. NL is our leader. Add Scottie and Mann in the 5th spot. They are 4 year guys that think they are 1 year guys. I love our bench. I love the roster. I am still not sold on White, but his kids are. They played with so much fight tonight. When we press we are always successful. Press MW press. We have a crazy deep quick group with good hands.
