Monday October 15, 2012Billy D and Gators talk about the details in an artsy, old-school video

Updated: 4:22pm, October 15

GAINESVILLE, Fla. – One of the phrases Florida basketball fans can expect to hear a lot of this season will have to do with focusing on the details more than in the past.

“The little things,” Coach Billy Donovan likes to say.

And he will say that a lot in the coming months.

So with respect to those "little things" – perhaps with memories of loose balls, inexact box-outs or an ill-advised shot or two from the Elite Eight loss to Louisville -- the Gators made a video this preseason ramming home some points of emphasis that fall under Donovan's umbrella of details.

When I say Gators, I mean current ones, past ones, managers, support and administrative staff -- and even wives.

Very simple, but pretty interesting stuff.

Critical stuff, in Donovan's eyes. That's why he aired this video for his players Friday before the team's' first official practice of the 2012-13 season as a reminder to start living by the very codes recited as keys to success.

And it’s now on YouTube for everyone to check out.
