Turn the game off
Duke wasn’t alway Duke either. We had a chance to maintain a top 15 program and we let it fade. Not much different than football
We look like we belong in Conference USA and not the SEC.
I think a lot of us really wanted Mike White to be the guy - he represents the university with class, he recruits pretty well, his players seem to love him. He just hasn’t produced results, and I think Stricklin is just delaying the inevitable as he continues to lose fan support.
People can talk about Cal all they want but right now he is on a totally different level than White.
Thank you for finally protecting the rim.
Thank you Omar Payne!
Yep. It's just tough...After 2000 I was always a bigger UF basketball fan than football. And now its just depressing, especially knowing our program can be a top 10-15 program.
Why are we surprised by this? We've been a bubble program the past 4 seasons under White.
So are most high school coaches
Surprised at the blowout. Would think the way UK has struggled to score that they wouldn’t run away with it. Not surprised that Florida looks poorly coached, hesitant, sloppy, that they can’t get good looks, etc. Just didn’t think Kentucky would look as good as they have.
They are a reflection of their coaching. This is now six years of making excuses for underperforming, lack of toughness, lack of size, and lock of competitiveness. You can't go through 40-50 players in the course of 6 years and blame these consistent trends on all of the players.
It was a good experiment, but it is time to move on from the Mike White era. I would rather see us lose with a new coach who instills the toughness that is necessary to compete in the SEC and the NCAA than for a coach who brings in so much talent but only gets a fraction of their talents out of them.
There is no way you can tell me that White is getting the best of Payne, Locke, Castleton, Appleby, Lewis, Mann, heck the entire team. They are simply not playing up to potential.
I don’t even feel like Kentucky is that great but our defense makes people look great so many easy dunks and layups.
Yes we have and I said this is his last chance. Sucks for him he lost his best player. No pass from me. He is just too damn nice is the only thing I can figure out. This is not a good Kentucky team.
Samson is the mvp. The kid was in for a couple minutes and fought his ass off. He showed more in two minutes than the team did in 40.
It would be a crime for him not to play more next game.
And he seems to be one of the best shooters. Which we seems to honestly lack at times. We have streaky shooters where he feels consistent.
Duruji with 15 pts leads all players
He's the only guy that looked like he knew what he was doing on defense.
Final Score: 76-58 as the Cats totally dominate the Gators on our home court.
That was bad. Maybe Bama is not as good as I thought they were.
