Chomping At Bits: Kentucky Fans Still Taking Shots At Billy Donovan

Chomping At Bits runs twice daily during the week and once daily on weekends, and comes stocked with the best Florida Gators links and news we can find. Got a link we should check out? Email us at, subject line CAB.

Kentucky fans are great: (Matt Jones, Grantland)

While, publicly, Calipari makes claims that his focus is solely on running a "Players First" program that, according to Kentucky senator Mitch McConnell, "creates more millionaires than a Wall Street firm," the lack of a national championship eats at him. He knows that he is as good as or better than others in the coaching elite and that his résumé should certainly be considered greater than that of lesser coaches with national titles, like Bill Self, Billy Donovan, and Tubby Smith.

1) Why is Mitch McConnell's terrible one-liner about Kentucky basketball in there? 2) Is this some surprise that Calipari might be upset about not having a ring? 3) Only one of those three coaches has national titles. 4) If Kentucky fans were really so down on Donovan, why were they having paroxysms over the prospect of Donovan coming to Lexington?
