The first four schools you mentioned are probably by far the most tradition rich and successful programs in men's college tennis history. To throw Florida in with them is a stretch.

Not sure if the rumors about Boland being a serious candidate are true. The only way I could see him leaving is if they bowl him over with money (as others have mentioned), and I suppose that is a possibility. Otherwise, I think he's got a pretty good thing going at UVA, and seems very happy there. I suppose it would have been much more interesting if he had gotten that national title this year. Then, a big pay hike may have been more tempting.

Certainly, a flirtation with Florida could also be used as a negotiating tool to get UVA to up its ante to keep him.
