Honestly, I could care less how Gillispie comes off with the media. The fact of the matter is, Kentucky fans (and I am one) have been spoiled with coaches who are all things to all people.
Rick Pitino relished in the role. Tubby was able to handle it as well. Every coach here since Rupp has been somewhat cordial with the media. The only thing I care about is wins and making it to the NCAA tournament. That didn't happen, but we are still going through a transition with a young coach.
As you stated "Every coach here since Rupp has been somewhat cordial with the media".
Even Hall and Sutton. Of course KY has always been one of THE
teams in basketball and winning helped the coaches to an extent. But with the UK program, comes call in shows, tv shows, endorsements, pre and post game radio as well as lots of other interviews for networks etc.
I am sure he wouldnt admit it but Leach probably doesnt relish the job of interviewing BG very much.
As far as it mattering. I told a guy this week if we were winning, it may not stand out as much yet as a fan, it does embarrass me when he looks like a jerk on National TV. Now everyone has their moments, so once or twice doesnt bother me but I just hope he doesnt develope this type of persona as the rule rather than the exception.
