    All I know is that I threw up watching the game.

    I never got what was so grand about Mike White, but then again, like you said, for years questioning Mike White meant I was somehow unloyal to the program. I want what's best for the program, not Mike White. No offense to him. Mike White won games with Donovan's players. Chris Chiozza made that miracle shot. Devin Robinson and Kasey Hill were Donovan's 5-star players who led the team. Mike White brought in Justin Leon, big deal. His first 2 seasons of recruiting were literally the worst possible classes we could've had. This program should've had momentum built off that elite 8 success, but we've gone in complete reverse.

    But I'm sure someone will take offense to that and correct me.

    All of this is fine, but to say you “never got what was so grand” ... is a bit disingenuous, considering you were lauding the raise and contract extension a mere few months ago.

    Yep, people make errors in judgment. You win that round, Brent.

    Disingenuous, no. It was a mistake, but I'm then again I'm unfortunately not a psychic, @akaGatorhoops

    @akaGatorhoops I'm so tired of you trying your damnest to come up with something to poke at if I, or anyone else, says something negative about the golden boy White. The board is dead at this point because people haven't been able to be honest about their thoughts here, so most are done saying anything at all now.

    I also know @harnettgator was a huge admirer of White and sure had a role in silencing any White critics. And she's no longer here, and won't come back.

    I respect that.
    The disingenuous part would be suggesting you “never got it”.
    You did, and now consider it a mistake.
    I’m not gonna argue that opinion. It is certainly valid even if I don’t agree.

    I really wanted to like Mike White, and thought that class, with the addition of Blackshear, would be the staff's way of turning the corner and running with the momentum. It's so frustrating to see it all flushed down the toilet.

    I have no issues with anyone making negative comments about white. Many are well earned.
    I disagreed with the portion of the post that you “never” understood the appeal. You did, and have since changed your mind. I respect that.
    Sorry you are upset.
    I try to be fair here, and don’t think I silence anyone. I certainly don’t seek to.
    I have no comment on Harnett. I’m bummed she left. I actually never knew she was a mod. But whatever.

    I agree. And will be EXTREMELY disappointed if this season doesn’t end much more successfully than it has begun.

    I don’t care what anyone says about you.... You do provide good memes.

    Kidding aside, if I’ve given the impression of trying to “silence critics”.... then I have really failed in my postings. That’s never been my intent.

    Anyway- be well.

    I predict we'll beat Auburn and Mike White will have totally redeemed himself.

    True, but we gave up 91 pts to a team that averages 68. The defense was, well, offensive.

    We dropped from, I believe, 34th to 58th in Pomeroy’s defensive efficiency based on that “offensive” display!

    There is a lot of leniencies allowed for criticism of CMW and the players on here. You can't be insulting at all to the players but you can criticize their play. You can't use the f word or use GD at any time.

    And for the record, just today we had a long term member cancel because in their words "the excessive negativity of a couple of posters on the game thread".

    I should have said "threatened to cancel".
