    My boss is a FU grad and diehard fan of all things FU. According to him Mike White is a great recruiter but a terrible coach. A gets less out of more thing. They’re happy we hired him and saved the 8.5M buyout.

    That”gets less out of more thing” seems to be a common thread when Floriduh fans are evaluating coaches. In most cases they are dead wrong.

    See “Coach Kirby Smart “

    Yeah, and UTenn did the same thing hiring Barnes after UTex fired him. Worked out good for the Vols it seems.

    Great point. Not being "wanted" at one school isn't the same as not being any good.

    If he can recruit Atlanta consistently like some say with the help of Jonas we will be much better. Mark fox couldn’t do it and Crean couldn’t do it (for whatever reasons). They both had the benefit of a bluebird in KCP and Ant man but absolutely 0 consistency in building depth with 2-3 studs a year from the state. That’s a must have I don’t care who the coach is. You won’t win consistently without the players.

    Agreed, can't win without the jimmys and joes. Also, has to shore up the transfer portal and better roster manage along with the recruiting.

    Fun moment today from the introduction where Coach White said his kids were asking what they should do with their Gators gear. Someone from the stands shouted, “Burn it.” That would make for an easy way to get DawgNation behind you.

    "Recruit Atlanta."

    Hey, everyone recruits Atlanta, UGA inclluded.

    It comes down to paying for the best players.

    There's an NIL fund fans can donate to.

    They also won those two national championships under Donovan with an absurd amount of NBA talented players. they had 3 top 9 picks in (Horford, Noah, and Brewer) and like 5 more players that would make the NBA
