07:33 AM ET 11.01 | The lineup is thinning under University of Florida men's basketball coach Billy Donovan's feet. [Donovan] confirmed preseason reports on Thursday that Dorian Finney-Smith and Damontre Harris, a pair of transfers and backup forwards, will join guard Scottie Wilbekin on the suspension list for the exhibition opener [Friday] against Florida Southern. Donovan added that all three suspensions will extend into the regular season as well. ... Florida also will be without guard Mike Frazier (mono) and forward Will Yeguete (offseason knee surgery). Only center Patric Young and forward Casey Prather, the scheduled starters, will be available for the start of the season. Transfer Eli Carter (broken leg) has been practicing but is also expected to be limited when the year begins.

He has to blame it on something besides his really bad team and coaching when he ends up about 5th or 6th in the SEC this year.

Yep, Billy D can not coach at all. 2 NCs and 3 straight Elite 8s.

Billy D brings the hammer on the wayward players at the beginning of the year. Sends the message that UF will win without them. Then make a run in the Tourney.

Look for UF to improve when players get healthy and Chris Walker joins the squad.

Yeah, bribing AAU coaches (bball) is different than bribing high school coaches (football).

Agree, Billy The Hairline doesn't split hairs on players that demonstrate poor decision making. I pray that the injuries don't continue to happen during the season.

Yeah, that sucker don't work but about 10% of the time.

However, I've got a lot of information stored in my hard drive. Just don't remember where I filed it or what I named it.

...and you can apply the term "hard drive" to my computer or that thing that sits on top of my shoulders.

I prefer the third hard drive though.

NO sympathy from me on suspensions and injuries. For any of you.
