Billy Donovan doesn’t like your All-Access show

Billy Donovan doesn’t think it’s fair that Kentucky gets its own weekly all-access show on ESPN. When asked about All-Access Kentucky at SEC Media Day, the Florida head coach said, “If you’re using it as a recruiting tool, I don’t think that is right.”

Oh. So if ESPN asked Donovan if he would like to do it next month, he would turn it down because it isn’t right?

Quit whining, Billy.

You too, Joakim.

    We’re 1-7 against Calipari including 5 straight losses by an average of 13 per game.

    I didn’t think I could enjoy the All Access show even more, but this makes it so much better.

    Does Billy really think we need this show to recruit? I dont recall an all access show when Cal signed any of his #1 recruiting classes at UK so far.

    Billy D’ – It’s also not fair that their players are bigger faster and better than MY players….That’s an unfair advantage. And when they were serving lunch at this SEC coach’s meeting Coach Cal’ got two extra green beans and his chesscake looked a little bigger than Mine… That’s just unfair.
    and and and I don’t get paid as much either….I’m taking my ball home and telling my Mommy…waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa

    Cal @ UK vs:

    Louisville 4-0
    Indiana 3-1
    North Carolina 3-1
    Florida 7-1

    He is beating down rivals!

    Too bad Billy Boy! You’d jump at an offer if ESPN wanted to come film you but instead they head to your football facilities.

    Duke’s Blue-White game was an ESPN channel. Does it give them an advantage? Does it give Billy D an advantage when he recruits players he coached this summer?

    If it makes you so sick, then quit watching it. Obviously your interested in us if you are taking time to watch us. Go eat your mammas toe jam and watch your dads one highlight clip in tennis.

    I like Joakim Noah. He embodies everything right about college basketball – passionate, immensely talented with a good sense of humor. That being said, I hate him for being a Gator and look forward to destroy his alma mater in basketball for years to come.

    Matt Jones when Duke Coach K was all over tv with those American Express comercials this site including you on the show whined about it just like Donavon. I personally don’t beleive any program should get that type pub. Unless every team is given equal opportunity. Yes espn can cover who and what they want i understand the blue blood teams sell. But we don’t know what ratings other programs would make either.

    47 Matt whined about it bc no one should have to look at that rat face when they are trying to enjoy a television show. It probably ruined his dinner a few times.

    Actually, I agree with Billy. It IS an unfair advantage.

    Any teams getting added exposure on ESPN has an advantage. Duke and UNC have enjoyed it for years.

    Is it right? No.

    Should we turn it down as some sort of gesture of fairness? Absolutely not!

    47. Espn should give every program equal opportunity! And every kid should get a trophy and a snack and a drink box after every game. That fairness mentality is one of the problems with our culture right now.

    Cal is taking full advantage of all access in a way that other coaches can not. Cal for senate!

    Billy thinks it’s unfair that others will see how awesome UK is instead of him telling them that it’s about the same as UF.

    And Noah is wanting to throw up thinking about how different the conditions are at UK and UF. “I missed out on all that???”
