Billy Donovan’s Uniform Fetish

Posted in Basketball at 9:11 pm by

The No. 1 Florida Gators will bring their 21-2 record to Athens’ Stegeman Coliseum Wednesday night for an SEC clash with Georgia. And while I have nothing much to say about that contest (other than adding a gratuitious link to a Pylon video), get a load of the following passage by the Gainsville Sun’s Kevin Brockway (link swiped from NCAA Fanhouse’s Ryan Ferguson)

Florida has taken to the us-against-the-world mentality on the road, going 3-0 in the Southeastern Conference away from the O’Connell Center. To feed the theme, Florida coach Billy Donovan (above, right) wore a police uniform in the locker room before road games at Auburn and Mississippi State, complete with a baton and handcuffs.

“Everywhere we go it’s like a circus,” Joakim Noah said. “We just like being the bad cops, taking the kegs away, taking everything away, messing up the party. Everyone goes home with a sad face.”
