Bill Donovan Drops Florida's Championship Trophy
Coach Billy Donovan chose the worst possible time to not get an assist. The Florida Gators were celebrating their very first national championship when their trophy was lazily handed off and shattered on the floor in front of the team and an arena full of fans.

Pete Carroll Pulls An April Fool's Prank at USC
