    When I look at Billy Donovan, I see a cheater...

    Maybe I'm wrong, but the guy just looks like a weasel to me. Has he ever been caught cheatin'?

    Nevermind, I'm just bitter because Noah is such a whiner.

    Noah has such a beautiful mother...I didn't understand it.

    Until I saw his father. Then I got it.

    But now I don't understand how that ever happened.

    A bunch of us watching were thinking the same thing...wow she was hot...Noah's dad was a pro tennis player, so i'm pretty sure that's how he pulled that one off...and Billy Donovan no doubt overachieved with his wife...

    Come on now... Donovan has that east coast stock broker thing going for him, right out of the movie "Wall Street" with Michael Douglas and Charlie Sheen... HAHA... but Donovan knows how to motivate and get players to succeed, so you can't take that away from him.

    Re: When I look at Billy Donovan, I see a cheater...

    Not only was his dad a pro tennis player but he was one of the first superstar multi media athletes, kinda like a young Andre Agassi. He was everywhere but aparantly the practice court as he wasnt a great player...

    On a related note, if you have not read Rick Pitino's book Success is a Choice I would HIGHLY recommend it. It applies basketball lessons to all walks of life and tells some great stories that might help you see how Billy D got where he is.

    Dad left very early in life - passed on Miss Sweden.

    If Donovan leaves for Kentucky, I immediately disrespect him more than anyone in college basketball. The only possible reason he would do it is for money. Its obviously not a promotion anymore when UF is the team to beat.

    Tommorrow He will be announced the coach at Kentucky for $3.5 million per.

    All the players will be leaving for the NBA. What are they going to do now? Play for a 3rd title? I think the Benjamins will be to much for that.

    Do you respect Roy Williams? He went "home" even though he didn't come close to what Donovan has done in FL. But same situation! Just wondering...

    While I agree somewhat with what you say, you know his whole team is leaving for the draft, so why not go now when you have the chance. Wasn't he once an asst. at Kentucky as well?

    Re: When I look at Billy Donovan, I see a cheater...

    Consecutive championships or not, Kentucky is a better job than Florida. It's be too bad for Florida fans if it happens, but I wouldn't condemn him.

    Anyway, did anyone else hear Noah during the post game celebration and want to hit him in the face?
