It's time for Billy Donovan to go

Postby Gatorpoet » Wed Mar 03, 2010 10:09 am

1) Inexplicably could not capitalize on two national titles in a row. We should have remained a top tier program

2) In line with number one...four NITs in a row after two titles. Come on.

3) He wanted to go to the Magic...his wife wanted to stay. His heart isn't completely in this anymore.

4) He hit the lottery with the '04's, and has reverted to his recruiting of smallish players who sling it from the arc...but when they get cold....

5) I think Anthony Grant...at the time would have brought a refreshing change to a program with a coach who clearly wanted to leave at the time.

6) I don't fault the Vandy loss...but to lose to Georgia when so much was riding. Unreal.

There was a thread titled "Losers ..." that contained some productive discussion on the subject of Gator basketball and the future of BD that suddenly disappeared seconds before this one appeared.

If the OP was the one who deleted, he needs to explain why.

The OP is no more qualified to ask the above questions re Gator basketball than the man on the moon. Delete this piece of crap of a thread.

I don't think he needs to be fired yet, but his seat needs to feel a little warm. He is getting paid to much for product that he is putting on the floor for the past three seasons. We keep having the same problems as a team every season. Something needs to change and I personally it wont unless billy feels some heat.

Not at all. The deleted post was all about dissenting opinions, and very frank in its tone. Were you the one who deleted it seconds before this one, suspiciously similar in tone, appeared? If so what gives you the right to summarily decide who's posts matter more?

there you go. a very reasonable opinion. '78, and Ox typically drink the Kool-aid and do not like any negative opinions. They would be a lot more credible if they conceded a few points here and there

I have no problems discussing negatives with Gator athletics. However, you have consistently shown you are only here to stir the pot and tick people off with over-the-top bashing threads. You are NOT here to discuss anything in a rational manner, just to get your jollies. So quit acting innocent - you were banned before for good reason after several warnings. You've already started again.

This is a knee jerk reaction. We are really close to being a very good team.

We have finally addressed the front court, but now our back court is a mess. Unfortunately, we lost Nick this year. This team would have been a 11-5 conference team this year with him. Walker is horrible at the point, and that along with nobody able to consistently hit a 3 from the 2 spot is killing this team.

I remember a few games back the announcer said this team is a point guard way from being a top 10 team. I think he is right. Parsons & Macklin are all sec caliber next year, Tyus is ok, Boynton hopefully improves to become a back up point, or starting 2 guard though he is small. Walker should come off the bench. The point is our weakest spot.

3/5ths of the starting line up did not show up last night. Our supposedly NBA ready best player Parsons, disappears and our guards, actually what guards, both lay eggs.

Vandy was doing good to even win the game. Why, Donovan kept the Gators in the game with his coaching. This might have been his best game as a coach this season.

I don't think we would have been much better with Nick. Yes our offense would probably improve with him in the line up but he never played defense and the defense is the biggest reason we have better wins this year.
