    Chris Harry, right, posted this yesterday on FB. Donovan looks like he’s lost considerable weight.

      The one game this season that I am really looking forward to going to regardless of how the excuse of a team plays.

      lol. Delayed response.

      My point was that a program is truly regarded as consistently strong, or even a dynasty, when it has success with more than one coach. Otherwise, everything can just be attributed to the strengths of one particular coach as opposed to the program in general.

      Billy Donovan put Florida Basketball on the map, just like SOS did with Florida Football. But notwithstanding some mediocre seasons, for the most part Florida Football has stayed on the map. We won more championships after SOS left. Whereas, Florida Basketball? The jury is still out.

      I wasn't sure if you were serious or joking about continued or sustained success with Mike White :)

          It’s going to be an emotional day for Florida basketball.

              That's NV's take on draining the Swamp.

                will the fans be chanting, "Fire Mike White" and/or "Come home Billy"?

                The location for the formal introduction of the Billy Donovan Court is the (take a deep breath) Exactech Arena at the Stephen C. O’Connell Center.

                I’m exactly sure there is some prominent basketball-loving Gator booster not named O’Connell who can anonymously pony up $5.9m to save us from the anguish of that awful basketball arena name in order that we can finally get it right.

                The Donovan Dome, or Donodome.

                (I alluded to that in post #3 on Dec. 6. Bianchi, you’re just hitching a ride.)

                  I hope that weight loss is intentional because it doesn’t look right to me. He looks gaunt. His clothes are practically hanging on him.

                      Great speech by Billy D at halftime. Surprising that he credits Foley for bringing him to UF. Billy D, Sully, and Walton the only good things he did at UF? What former players were at the game? I wonder if they will release a list of all that were there. I did see Noah, Horford, Beal, and Doe Doe behind the announcers.

                          Only Noah would wear the jersey of a former teammate(Moss). That whole team was ridiculously special.
