Billy Donovan, Lucas and Patterson

https://i1.wp.com/img251.imageshack.us/img251/1668/billdgn4.jpgI found this picture while searching the web for an Adolph Rupp photo.  I couldn’t help but laugh and remember.  For a while, Kentucky fans were salivating over the prospect of Billy Donovan coming to UK.  Also, Patterson and Lucas dominated the recruiting talk for months.

We got Patterson and another Billy.  Billy Donovan left Florida for the NBA but changed his mind and came back.  Lucas went to UF.    UK fans now have a grudge against Donovan because he “snubbed” us.  [But it was ok for Tubby to run off to Minnesota.  Someone explain that one to me.]  Kentucky fans have a hate fetish for Lucas as well.

Kentucky fans are an odd lot.  I’m one.  I’ll admit it.

One comment on “Billy Donovan, Lucas and Patterson

  1. I believe that UK has the right Billy.

    UK fans are consistently insistant for UK basketball excellence.

    The excellent person, Tubby Smith, took off for Minnesota. That was a good thing for each school. Billy D is excellent and Billy G will be proven in a little while.
