Sorry, but 20-16 is just not good enough

    I know they rallied to make the tournament, but a team with this much talent and senior leadership shouldn't have been in that position to begin with. 20-16 is decent for some programs, but not UF.

    And why the hell has FSU completely passed us?

    Are these the kind of posts we're gonna see all night? Good God! It's like bababooey is hosting an orgy or something.

    One or two good seasons does not make a definitive program stance. They just have a better team right now. Who knows what they’re doing in Tallahassee but they have guys now. If white does this type of season with a stellar recruiting class again then maybe it’s an issue. Just relax. Florida is a really good program but still not a blue blood

    Find a guaranteed future NBA player on our roster. Good luck.

    When your offense is built around two streaky scorers and little to no consistent inside presence, you’re going to be limited.

    If Hudson has his mojo the whole season, we’re not a 10 seed that has to play a better Michigan team in the round of 32.

    All that said, help is on the way. With Nembhard, Locke, Mann, and Lewis I expect to see a very different offense next year geared toward a lot more tempo.

    F$U cheats their ass off, that’s why. They aren’t in the running for top prospects because of their amazing hoops tradition. Hamilton is big time connected to the AAU circuit and has those connections.

    I guess we should erase the entire season from the record books, then?

    FSU had their classes pan out. But next year we should be better again. They lose a lot of guys. 5 seniors and possibly a junior. And they recruited better than us between Billy's last year and Mike's first 2 years. Had three players in those classes make the NBA.

    I don’t expect an uptempo team. Scottie Lewis is an Excellent defensive player. Mann a good shooter/scorer. Neither will come on the scene and dominate. I’m glad Mike White is our coach. No drama and good guy. We will be just fine.

    And to be fair Hamilton has won 8 tourney games at FSU and he's been there like 15 years. And CMW has already won 5.

    Yes. Yes, it is. Some people don't fake perspective.

    OP needs to go take a walk, read a book, or get a good whiskey. Soak up some life, which will maybe, just maybe, add a dose of perspective.

    I thought our guys played with a lot of heart, never gave up and played a better team. I'm pretty sure that happens sometimes in sports.
