The fact that this team has so few fastbreak points every game is unacceptable.
It’s not even thanksgiving. Calm down, the team will be fine
Bad last sequence but overall a good second half. We are definitely not the team everyone expected but we can work w that second half.
I disagree. Letting him and KJ play a 2 man game is sustainable, especially with KB on the court. You can then run high-low out of that with KB if you want. Plenty you can do with that set.
It gets your PG going down hill I to attack mode, opens up the floor for a forward to power drive if he wants to as well. That's kind of what we need to do this year.
If Locke can't make a 3, he shouldn't play. Don't need another small guard on the floor who really doesn't do much else to win you games.
We should play Blackshear with Gitiboh more and Gitiboh anytime because he is a load for any team. If Mike will play him he will only get better.
My starting five,
AN, Scottie, Johnson S.F., Blackshear PF, Gitiboh center.
Our team played better with Gitiboh occupying the paint. Just drive it inside, drive it inside, drive it inside. I say this because the coach likes pressure defense, then pressure the the other team with your offense. if you have to kick it out, then do it.
The steal at the end was unfortunate, but the right thought. if Gitiboh could have played earlier, the center having his way inside the whole second half until Gitiboh came in by default, might have been a different game. We played hard in the second half, some good things. but our shooting is so cold, we have to drive to the middle every play and play for two unless we kick it out. Maybe the team and coaches will get that is is our only hope.
Anyone who uses that excuse is delusional. If the coach can’t win with a young roster in today‘s game, he’s not good enough. This team is 4 games in and the three Sophomores are not better (in many cases they’ve looked worse) than they were last year. Common theme with this staff for whatever reason.
Just make a decision already. If you are going to play 4 guards, then you have to make it an up-tempo game. If you are going to play slow, you need a bigger lineup (combination of Blackshear with Payne, Gak, or Jitoboh)
That's a really small sample size to judge them on. Like really small. Sheesh. I think Locke's struggles are obvious but still not ready to make a judgement on the other two. Especially after watch AN in the 2nd half today. Carried us the way he was doing at times last year down the stretch.
Hope MW has a tweak in him.
From reading your post it seems like you don't enjoy watching the Gators play and that is your right, but it sure is getting old.
Thanks for an informative post that adds something constructive amidst all the criticism.
What the hell is happening to this team.
You clearly don't know why most people are venting. Are we talented? Absolutely. Are we young at most positions and still learning to gel? Absolutely. But the one foundational principle that great teams build on is Grit and Heart. We allow every team we play to take the fight to Us, not the other way around. I can understand the frustration that's all
It's Jason Jitoboh
That doesn’t work for 40 minutes. It worked for 2 possessions in each half. It was all we went to the last two minutes. AN got bailed out on a few foul calls, but it yielded back to back bad shots under a minute left. That offense won’t win games consistently. This is college basketball, not the NBA.
Do you? I support UF above all else. My choice to support or not a staff that continues to not do a good enough job
Of course he goes to Nembhard, that’s because he thinks that Nembhard is the best thing since sliced bread. So disgusted with how our team looks right now. I doubt they would look this bad if Donovan was coaching, just saying.
Maybe there are some high school teams we could play to help get our confidence back
This team would thrive in Billy D's offense.
