N. Calathes as always impressed me as a level-headed kid. I hope he doesn't have to make another decision. Too bad he couldn't have played a year with the current team.

Buddy if you think that coming to the winninest college basketball program is a demotion then you have to one of the biggest idiots in the entire country. Think about this you won a national championship last year and failed to sell out more than half of your home games. Even ine the SEC tournament we had more fans then you, and it was in Atlanta, which is alot closer for Florida fans. Even though we had a coach that no one liked and a mediocore season. Florida is a football school and it doesn't matter how many games you win

Hey UKFann...whatever, Billy Donovan is turning Florida into a pretty top notch program. The problem with Kentucky is, you guys are never satisfied with any coach. You guys run them all off. I guess when all you have is horse racing, it's easy to sell out every home game. By the way, how does it feel to lose 6 in a row to a football school. Most of the championships you won were when there were only 5-6 top notch programs. Now that every body else has caught on , you guys can't stand the fact that you are no longer king of the hill. That is why you will never be able to keep a coach. Maybe you should try and become a football school. The view from up here is MARVELOUS>>>

Hey UKFANNADUMBO, You are living in the past. Kentucky is no longer the premier program in America. They are nothing more than a grave yard for good coaches. Billy Donovan is the King at the football school. By the way, how does it feel to have lost 5 or 6 in a row to a football school. When schools are winning national championships for selling out home games, Kentucky has my vote for number 1. Until later, the view from up atop this football and basketball national championship school is MARVELOUS.

Very truly yours, a very happy idiot.

Who are you kidding? The best coaching job in all of college basketball is at Kentucky. UF will never have the tradition UK has and never will. Keep those plane tickets to Lexington within reach BillyD!

If BillyD, when BillyD comes to UK, Calathes will not be far behind. Wait till Calathes sees our new $30 mil practice facility which is a palace along with the house that Rupp built and the great fans. Kentucky takes more fans on the road then UF has at its home games. GO CATS!!!

My daughter is friends with Nick, (her best friend is dating him) Apparently Nick, nor another Lake Howell recruit did not receive a text from Billy. Only Allen did, I find that rather strange.

Unbelievable - I guess this all proves what is wrong with modern day athletics? Silly me, I thought players choose their school based on what they might do in life afterwords ie education/career. Maybe Nick has the ability to play in the NBA and maybe he doesn't when it all come out in the wash. Note to Nick and more importantly your parents and advisors --- My suggestion, better choose your future, not your coach!!! If you are as good as advertised the NBA will come calling regardless....
