Already this season Florida has gone from "Final Four contender" to losing four of five, including at home to Loyola (3-2, MVC), to 4-0 SEC.  It's a really a waste of time to use every game in January as a referendum on the coach's status, system, and recruiting.  You could have done a screenshot of the board exactly one year ago, and it wouldn't look any different.  Then in March we're crushed that the refs robbed us against the eventual NCs.

The SEC is brutal this season.  Somebody is going to get beaten down.  Will it be us? Certainly can't rule it out at the moment.  Will we turn it around? Maybe.  Of course, we could sneak into the tourney at 9-9 in the SEC and then make a run like USC last season, who looked down and out as late as March.  If we make it to the second week of the tourney, early January will be quickly forgotten.  Just the let the season play out and support the team until the games are finished.  Predictions are difficult, especially about the future.  Some teams have dramatic changes in fortune every season.  Wisconsin was once 11-10 during a FF campaign.  If we crash and burn, there will be plenty of time to discuss the implications.

Very true. It's important to put it in perspective and realize we aren't the only team in history to skid. South Carolina limped into the tournament last year before going to the Final Four. We do have games left, and there's a reason you play them all.

The SEC is much tougher than when Mike first got here. Of our first 4 opponents, there is 15 sweet 16 appearances between Barnes, Howland, and Pearl. LSU seems to have really upgraded with their coach as has Bama, and South Carolina.

No more Tony Barbee's or Johnny Jones to beat to make you look good as a coach
yep the SEC has upgraded its coaches & they are kicking our butts in their 1st & 2nd years. We need to upgrade our coach

Here we go again, just hang on until the 2018 class or the 2019 or I heard the 2030 class is going to be special, some really good 1st graders tearing up the LR rink dink leagues right now. Couple of Mike's good friends have grand kids playing in the 5/6 yr old league. So we just gotta roll with Mike until that class gets here in 12 years.

Dude. Did you even read the post you quoted?

It's like you have Mike Anderson schizophrenia, roaming thread to thread paranoid that someone is going to say something neutral or positive.

Relax, man. Everyone is disappointed with Mike right now. Re-read the post.

Garland would have helped.

Again agree to disagree....name some 3* freshmen players on other teams that are helping their teams win....3* need development and are always way to slow for the speed of the game!

This is pretty logical; still a lot of basketball left to play. I could see our offense getting hot again and the hogs finishing top 5 in the sec or we could fizzle our and stay around .500 or less.

Dude Garland wasn't some 3* freshman. ESPN rated him 58th overall...

Can you read? I posted a link and a picture that show Garland as a 4-star Top 60 player.

"I said during the summer that I couldn't remember the last time Anderson and his staff were so visible on the recruiting trail. That effort has paid off."
Thanks that's it.
