Florida fans fed up with Mike White after blowing 10-point halftime lead vs. Mississippi State
These 2 statements are facts from Tuesday night’s Mississippi State-Florida game in Gainesville:
- Florida led by 10 points at halftime.
- Mississippi State won the game by 7 points.
That’s right, the Bulldogs outscored the Gators by 17 points in the second half to earn a huge road win over Florida, with a final score of 78-71.
That’s 3 straight losses for the Gators — against Mississippi State, Baylor and at LSU. Combined with a loss at Mizzou earlier in the SEC season, fans are getting fed up with coach Mike White.
Despite several talented freshmen, and graduate transfer star Kerry Blackshear Jr., the Gators continue to disappoint. Here’s a look at some of the fan reaction from around the basketball world after Florida’s bad home loss:

Mike White when he wins the NIT, signs another 5 star recruit and doesn’t get fired because “he needs to get his system in place” pic.twitter.com/Cyvc1RyXMi

The program is broken. If you’re not on board with firing Mike White at this point then you’ll never be convinced https://t.co/4Xnc5xTcT9

Mississippi State is a good team, of course, but this was a game the Gators should have won. How many more of these games can White survive?
