    Well done, Coach Donovan! As Fran Fraschella says, you've done a "masterful" job.

    Congrats to all the people involved... with a special thanks to Coach Billy Donovan. The greatest basketball coach The Florida Gators have ever had.

    I mentioned this in another thread, but at the university games the US just lost to Australia and Canada in pool play and is out of medal contention. It's no gimme for Billy to make it look as easy as he does.

    I am thankful that BD is our basketball coach, and grateful for all he has done for our university over the years. Looking at all the resumes side-by-side, only Coach K and Coach Pitino are clearly superior at this point, and they've both got alot of years on Billy.

    With another 20 years like the last 20, he could go down as the all-time best in cbb history, outside of maybe Wooden.

    Thank you, Coach!
