The Gators Video of the Day (GVOD) features, you guessed it, videos relating to the Florida Gators. They could be Gators athletes or homemade videos made by fans like ourselves. If you have any suggestions for GVOD, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or TBG at email@example.com. We will try our best to live up to the “of the day” part of the title.
Who would have thought Billy Donovan, who played guard in college, would have such bad hands? Sadly, Donovan’s hands would be the demise of the Gators’ first basketball National Championship trophy. Well, not really.
Don’t be like Al Horford and freak out when you see the trophy crashing to the ground. Why? Because the Gators did not break THE 2006 Basketball National Championship crystal trophy since the one you see shattering was actually a fake. That came as a great relief to Billy Donovan and the students at the 2006 Midnight Madness. No, he didn’t break THE trophy, but it will still be a great memory of Donovan that we will keep for a while.
By the way, it was also a Friday the 13th. Was this Gators memory a curse? Or just a coincidence?
