“Was I the second choice?” Gillispie asked at his introductory news conference on April 6, in reference to UK’s public courtship of Billy Donovan. “If I was anywhere before seven and eight, I’d be happy.”

April 6th, 2007

It was bigger than any Joakim Noah chest thumping, Al Horford arm flex, or rumor about where Billy Donovan might cash his next paycheck. It was bigger than a rematch of a December battle in Gainesville, or the revenge factor from the BCS Championship in January.

The Florida Gators did more than claim a second straight basketball title on Monday night. They made history, and firmly placed their stamp on two of the greatest seasons in college basketball history.
