After Florida's near loss to 8-6 UAB:

"We realize we're going to get every team's best shot," Donovan said. "That's the best game UAB has played, but I'm not surprised. We're getting that from everybody."


I really dislike that guy.

UAB should have beaten them; Florida got many calls and Brewer banked in a three to boot.

Someone must have been sick or something.

HawkDoc, I can't stand the man either, but we say that about everyone we play also. Although Florida is not quite in our league historically, they probably will get everyones best shot. Historically, we have earned it. They haven't. But, I can't say this enough, I really can't stand the man.

Compare what Donovan says with what Self says. What Donovan says might be true, but it shows him to be classless. And a cheesedick (to use Shirley's term). Maybe even a Phillycheesedick.

Self could say the same thing, and it would be true. But he doesn't say it. Why? Because he has class.

You're right chikn, the fans here at KU say we get everyone's best shot, but the coaches don't. Self does have more class. I still like Swisscheesedick because who really wants holes in their.....nevermind.

Phillycheesedick. Nice one. And I couldn't agree more.

Florida all most lost tonight to UAB in South Florida. UAB led most of the way and Florida came back at the end to win on home turf.

Good coach. Arrogant man. And worst of all, he's a cheater.

It's true. I know it's true because I read that statement on here multiple times after a close call against a lesser team. If we can use it, so can Billy.

Hold Billy to the same expectations as internet know it alls. Sounds like what Lew expects of Self.

Classy coaches don't say those type of things. Fans like us do.

And if Mr. Donovan was the KU coach and led KU to the Championship last year, all of you would worship his ass. I know thats a lot of if's. Almost like saying IF I was 6-4, had movie star good looks, had a billion dollars, I might get a good looking woman to talk to me. Most of you don't like Coach K, Roy, Bobby Knight, etc. So I will ignore your feelings about another guy who won a N.C. and can be an ass.
