I heard a couple of weeks ago that Gillispie is a huge fan of horse racing. The lure of more money and the prospect of being at the center of the thoroughbred universe was too strong to resist.
It apparently isn't being well received by some Cat fans either. A buddy from southern Indiana just emailed me and said all the Wildcat fans in his office are up in arms over this hire. He hasn't heard one UK fan defend the hire. I thought that was a little interesting.
