Here's a story about our nemesis, coach Billy Donovan of Florida. Much as we dislike what he's done to the Bruins in the Tourney, it's worthwhile to learn about dynamics between him, his athletic director, and his university's president.
While reading the article, it occurred to me how little we really know about Howland, Guerrero, and Block. Howland is practically a ghost off the basketball court. Guerrero is nowhere to be found outside of photo ops and buffets. Block hides out in the far corner of campus, ensconced in a second-floor office in Murphy Hall. We don't know what is truly important to these men, beyond the superficials of dollars and (maybe) victories. Do they care about integrity? Do they have a strong sense of purpose? How do they conceive of themselves as educators? Based on what we are able to observe, we would probably be disappointed to learn the answers to these questions, but it's troubling that they don't communicate in a way that would give us useful and positive insights. The linked article at least gives us an idea of what kind of a person Donovan is.
By the way, scroll to the bottom of the article. Whose team appears in the photo right after the story of Donovan and the Gators?
