Re: Billy Donovan and UK...
I've always subscribed to the theory that the biggest stars end up on the biggest stages. I can't think of any really good examples offhand of a truly A-list hoops coach who stayed at a football school forever. Eventually, they end up at a basketball school. Or in the NBA.
Florida is loving their hoops right now, no doubt. But I lived there for quite awhile, and lived in Kentucky too, so I have some frame of reference of comparison. UF fans, on the whole, do not need to be good at basketball the way they do at football, or like UK needs to be good at basketball. That cuts two ways. Donovan can win at Florida without the pressure or the unreasonable expectations. But pressure and expectations are the natural byproduct of people genuinely caring. One cannot simultaneously argue that Florida is a much less pressure-filled job but that he's just as big a deal there as he would be in Kentucky. So it comes down to what Donovan wants. Some people want the white-hot spotlight and some people don't.
