If he goes to UK, he'll be successful there. The man can flat-out recruit and evaluate talent, and with the cachet that comes along with the Kentucky basketball program (cachet that Tubby was unable to harness) he'll have Kentucky back to dominating the SEC.
As good as he's recruiting at Florida, he'll do even better with the University of Kentucky stamp at the top of the letterhead.
And he has a chance to take Florida and take a dead program and single handedly take it to where Kentucky thinks they should be every year. This isnt like Tom Crene at Marquette or the guy at A&M. Donovan has already reached the penacle at Florida why leave what he's build for a program thats "down" by their standards in the same conference?
Kentucky is one of the higher profile positions but when you have a chance to be THE MAN like Adolph Rupp, Bobby Knight, Denny Crum and cast your shadow through the job and elevate it to those elite levels, why go to a job where youre always compared to ghosts of the past?
