Re: Billy Donovan and UK...
I can really see both sides of this.
The truth of the matter is, with so much football money floating around and NCAA Tournament money out there and ESPN covering everyone that breathes, being a basketball school is no longer a prerequisite for building a top-tier basketball program. It helps, but it's not required. Having won back-to-back championships at Florida, it's hard to come up with a good reason why Donovan needs to go to UK or anywhere else.
At the same time, coaches at the top of the profession usually, eventually, end up at places that eat, sleep and breathe basketball just like they do, as opposed to a place where they slap you on the back, say "great job" and go back to talking about the football team. With the pressure and expectations of UK, UNC or Kansas comes the sort of ego-feeding 24/7/365 attention that some guys shrink from and others lap up.
Not all who wander are lost
