Although Florida is not a B-ball powerhouse and their first love is Football... I see Billy D staying on as a Gator too. I see it for other reasons that getting paid $ 4million. I see him staying until maybe an NBA job opens up after Pat Reily retires.

Bottom line... where would you rather LIVE - FLORIDA or Kentucky. I rest my case... he's staying where its nice! Kentucky - basketball powerhouse for sure... but that's all they got in the whole state. Life is more than college basketball, Florida is the place to live. Kentucky? Give me a break, would ya?

truthfully of all the arguments as to whether he will come or go the weather and how nice FLA is is the dumbest one of all. Hell look at Denny Crum. Won 2 championships at Louisville was offered UCLA 2 different times and turned it down. If he dosent come to Ky trust me the weather and what there is to do is not anythign to do with it.geex get a grip

You know absolutely nothing about UK basketball! You need to get your facts straight before you start bashing UK. Your knowledge about basketball syas it all. Since when is UF a big time program? 2006!!! They are done after this year. There is absolutely nothing to do at FL and stop saying there is too much pressure at KY! That means that there are greater expectations. And stop quoting the players saying that nothing is good at UK unless you win the national championship. That is a bias and how would Joakim Noah know that? He can even play basketball even if his life depemded on it. Don't be calling UK a nuthouse as you have in previous articles. Donovan is OURS and you guys just refuse to accept it. Read this comment Bianchi, and if you don't reply to it, I know you are to much of a sissy to do so. Here's a suggestion: get a real job!
WHAT SAY YOU NOW...YOU PROBABLY DON'T HAVE THE NADS TO WRITE A RETRACTION ESAD!

Mr French, it's official, Donovan is staying at UF. Press conference is at 4 today. Possibility that the players remain instead of going to the NBA!

Hell even Tenneesee is more important than FLa but again quite funny
yeah, I know,....there are a few "interpetation" to be made there, the cheif rival thing in NOT implied to be UF.

Put it this way: If there were a Mount Rushmore of college basketball coaching jobs, Kentucky would be on it, alongside North Carolina, UCLA, Duke and Kansas."

Strange, no mention of UF gecko's.
'cept for one thing,....UNC, Puke, and Kansas ALL have coaches!...UK's #1 target said "NO"!,...did not even want to listen to what THE MOUNT had to say!....and, "like" the Mount,..You're OLD news!

BTW, Rick of FTL. Tell me your address because I'm in FTL also. We are going to get something straight with the rest of you GAYtors, UF sucks and always will when it comes to basketball, not including 2006&2007. Come on GAYtors, I can take a hit. Post something on here that sounds more ridiculous than Bianchi's articles. UF should never be compared to UK unless you are talking about the past two seasons. "Billy would be taking a step down if he went to Kentucky."Step down my a$$! Get lost UF, you are done after the tournament, Donovan is OURS and you know it.
GO BIG BLUE!!!!!!!
Where are you Alan??? Surely you didn't miss the news that Donovan stayed at UF? Or that he has a top-10 recruiting class already lined up, with potentially another several top-tier recruits now looking at UF? Guess you missed that news...
