Final Four: Daddy Donovan Three Seats Away

By David Scott - April 02, 2007

We didn't realize it until just now, but the nattily clad white-haired man three seats to our right is Billy Donovan's dad, Bill, a former Boston College basketball player.

He usually sits on the Gator bench but NCAA rules prohibit it so he's apparently been given press row access.

. . .Select writers are busy filling out their all-tourney team ballots. So far the ballott we don't have would include Greg Oden, Corey Brewer, Al Horford, Lee Humphrey and a still TBD fifth choice. The MOP at this point, in our minds, is Corey Brewer, who is making himself a healthy boatload of cash this evening.

. . . The Florida radio network, sitting next to Donovan's dad, has been knocked off the air and there is panic in the streets. Some of you may recall this also happening to the Wright State radio network when we were at the Buffalo sub-regional. We want to make it clear thyat it has nothing to do with us and is merely a coinidence.

Unless this unplugged thingy majingy at our feet means something. But we doubt it.

The engineer guy who is sweating profusely is creaming into his cell phone: "CALL THE HOTLINE." Between this guy and Harlan, it's a freak show and we've missed a good third of the game. But we're thoroughly entertained.

. . . Florida is getting all the hustle plays as our esteemed neighbor has indicated.

. . . Already scuttlebutt on press row of Bob Huggins being the logical choice for the West Virginia game.
