Gator bait

Hail to the Florida Gators.

Winning one national championship is hard enough. Winning two, well, that's the stuff of legend.

Granted the players are the ones who play the game and deserve the greatest share of the credit, but Billy Donovan has done a superb job with this team.

First, this is team is well put together. By that, I mean they have all the pieces. They have playmakers, shooters, inside players and versatile parts. It's a really, really good basketball team. There may be teams with better NBA prospects, but this is the best team in college basketball.

Second, Donovan did a great job keeping this team focused through the year and not getting caught up in the hype.

It was a year when everyone expected the Gators to win and they delivered.

That would be SEC 2, Big Ten 0.

I guess Jim Delaney will have another letter on the Big Ten web site claiming how much better his league is than the SEC again.
