    Is it wrong????

    For me to root for Mike White and the Gators tonight when they keep mentioning where he came from? Is publicity a good thing or a great thing?

    His team is what I hope Tech will be some day. Bad start, but nice finish to the first half.

    Did you root for White while he was here? If you did, why would you root against him now? He did a very good job here, earned himself what he thinks is a better job and left our program better than he found it. He has been sucessful so far and good for him! That is the American way.

    Dooley, on the other hand, probably didn't have as much on the field success, got lucky in getting another opportunity being Tennessee's fourth or fifth choice (a panic hire). We all know how that went down. A little harder to be happy for him. I often wonder if he wishes he would have stayed a few more years here to see greater success before jumping at the first opportunity out of town.

    Did Mike White take one of Tech's signees with him to Florida? (Leon)

    Did Mike White try to steal a Tech player? (Stapleton)

    Did Mike White try to steal another Tech signee? (Jean)

    That's a quarter of Tech's roster White tried to steal. Mike White attempted more harm to Tech upon departure than any other recent Tech coach. I'm not rooting for him.

    I dont wish him luck.

    I dont wish him bad luck.

    He's not our coach. He has nothing to do with Tech at this point in his career.

    damn....that seems just wrong....if that is true, my level of respect for him dropped a little.....but really, that is the nasty world of collegiate athletics these days.

    Who recruited these players coming out of high school? Was it....oh, I dunno, Mike White!? He thought enough of them to recruit them, but he's suddenly not suppose to think they can perform at a DI program like UF? Really? Or, would you prefer him to say, those guys are good enough for Louisiana Tech, but not good enough for Florida.

    With some exceptions, recruits go where they feel a connection to the coach(es). Yeah, there are kids who want to play at a certain school, and will try to go there regardless who the coach is. Is Louisiana Tech such a program in MBB?

    How can Mike White "steal" a recruit, when the kid was White's recruit? Seems to me Tech stole that recruit, if the school refused to give him a release.

    You people need to grow up.

    Tampering is an NCAA violation.

    Then there's this thing called ethics. Maybe you haven't heard of it.

    And these weren't recruits. These were Tech signees and a player on our roster. All three guys bound themselves to Tech.

    And Tech didn't steal anybody. Tech gave Leon and Jean full releases. Only Stapleton was blocked from going to Florida because of White's tampering but was allowed to transfer elsewhere (Moo State).

    Dawg06:

    Point is, you used this so-called "stealing" of Tech players as a reason to hate Mike White and wish ill on him at UF. And, I maintain, White recruited those kids and if he wanted them to follow him to UF, that was his right, and it's their right to have sought a release from Tech so they could go to UF.

    Doesn't matter to me. These prima donna coaches and players come and go all the time. Best case, the longest any player, and a good coach, stay is 4 years anyway. I don't get "attached" to any coach or player. They can come and go as they please, as far as I am concerned.

    Back to the point, I like Mike White. He did do well while at Tech and left the program better than he found it. It is also documented that leaving Tech was genuinely a tough decision for him. He's not an alum and owes Tech nothing.

    Go Gators!

    Elite Eight; deeper than I ever imagined FL would go after Egbunu (starting center) went down.

    You're making up stuff. Try reading what I posted again. Never did I say anything about "hating" Mike White. Never did I "wish ill will" on him. All I said was "I'm not rooting for him."
