Yes, we know former Providence shooting ace Billy Donovan is The Rick’s favorite player from the past. And, until Little Ricky landed in Minneapolis, the Gator mentor was also HOF Pitino’s favorite coaching protege.
If somehow, the Cards can repeat as national champs this year, RP would match his former assistant’s feat of winning two in a row. However did Donovan do it first?
One thing teacher always has had on student was his propensity to suspend. Nobody can discipline with impunity like the Cardinals’ coach. At least until now.
Yes, Chane Behanan is twisting slowly, slowly in the wind somewhere out there that isn’t Minardi Hall or the Yum! practice facility (save for the weight room).
Which is nothing like what’s going on down in Gator World.
Scottie Wilbekin is to Florida as Chane Behanan is to Louisville. Meaning he is now suspended, as he was at the beginning of last season.
Hmmmmmmm, is there a trend here?
Then, trick or treat, Billy Donovan announced today that Dorian Finney-Smith and Damontre Harris have been suspended from game action. That the former is a transfer from Virginia Tech adds to the parallel universes we’re talking about. (Silent L, please recall, was Blackburg bound until Seth Greenburg was canned and Kevin Keatts pounced like a hungry cheetah in the Serengeti.)
As if that isn’t enough, guess what program has a couple of important players injured and not quite ready to play. No, not U of L with Luke Hancock and Kevin Ware. It’s those Florida Gators with Eli Carter and Will Yeguete.
It’s like deja vu over and over again.
