That's an important thing to remember. I think UK fans would be generous enough to give him a year. After that, I think if he doesn't make the Final Four, the natives will get restless. And even if he does make a Final Four and doesn't win it all, there is going to be a lot of criticism. The conventional wisdom is that if Donovan can go to back to back Final Fours at Florida - possibly winning them both - he should dominate at UK. Perhaps even give Wooden's record a run for his money. Plus Donovan would be getting paid a mint and we all know the higher the pay, the higher the expectations. There's no guarantee he's going to deliver.
