    "Sources say...."

    Guys...that story was written by Mark Schlabach. Did you read it? It says Kentucky is prepared to offer Donovan $1 million. Mark is a long time excellent reporter, with more SEC contacts than 99.9 percent of college reporters. He didn't say Donovan would take it, but do you think he made it up? If either one of the posters is half as good a reporter as Schlabach, I'd be impressed. But it must make you feel like a real big man to take pot shots at him, go ahead. I'm sure if ESPN.com offered either one of you a job, you wouldn't take it. Yeah, right!

    The fact that Schlabach wrote it is the only reason I paid attention to it. Oh, and there's an AP story out on Richie Farmer saying Donovan was "open" to the move.

    Actually, Sportsproducer (most likely at ESPN.com), it didn't say Kentucky was prepared to offer Billy Donovan $1 million, it said Kentucky was prepared to offer him $1 million more than he's making now. I guess reading isn't part of sports producing.

    And yes, we are aware that Mark Schlabach is God. Mizzou told us a long time ago that he's a f'ing stud.

    But I guess reporting with sources is "fanning the flames". A lot of news organizations ''fanned the flames" on Nick Saban going to Alabama. I guess they should just sit back and wait for the news conference.

    And no, I don't work for ESPN.com. But I wouldn't be adverse to it either.

    I hereby report Donovan is gone.

    Remember: You read it here third.

    Win a title, become a troublemaker....
  10. If Donovan passes, John Beilein will take it.

    The man is leaving WVU.

    Beilein might be in Michigan before Donovan turns down Kentucky
