    Yeah let's start talking him up. He was great at Michigan, he just didn't get the right oportunities. He'd be great at UK, he's the perfect coach for them. I'm sure he could get some of his incoming UM recruits to follow him.

    That's what I think too.

    Re: Billy Donovan and UK...

    My first reaction to this story was that Billy would stay at Florida, but after thinking about it I'm now of the opinion that he'll go to Kentucky.

    He's been with Flordia for 11 years and taken them to the top. I think he wants a new challenge, and I'm not sure the pressure of Kentucky basketball will really bother him. He'll like the sold out arenas and not playing second fiddle to football.

    His team is probably going to disband this year, with the top players graduating or going to the NBA. It'll be a clean break.

    It may feel 'right' for him to stay at Florida in the afterglow of back-to-back titles. But when he's in the second year of rebuilding the program and they're in the NIT or getting bounced in the first round of the NCAA's, he'll regret not going to Kentucky, IMO.

    I think he'll be on his way out of Florida.

    Florida may lose a lot next year, but they'll still be NCAA tourney worthy.

    Noah, Horford, Brewer, and probably Green will all be NBA draft picks. Horford has possibly played himself into a top 5 pick while Noah already is there. Corey Brewer could be top 10 as well. Green with his play against Ohio St could have played himself into the first round.

    A lot is going to depend on the players he gets in. If Donovan stays and Patterson commits, you are looking at a possible starting five of freshman Nick Calathes, Walter Hodge, Dan Werner, Patrick Patterson, and Maresse Speights. Not exactly the "Band of Brothers", but it would be better than what Kentucky is running out next year.

Maybe 5 years down the road, Donovan will decide that it is time for a new challenge and UK might be that challenge he's looking for if the NBA isn't for him.

    Pat Summit has more wins and more NCAA Championships than any coach in college history....she can probably coach better than a lot of male coaches......

    Different subject altogether, but I'm not convinced that Noah will be a very good pro. He'll get drafted, but I don't see him as a lottery pick. If anything, he hurt his value this year.

    Looks like Memphis has offered Donovan $5 million per to come coach them. According to this article UK has decided to up their offer to $4 million a year.
