Now THIS surprises me.
I'll admit I dislike Louisville as much as any UK fan, but this isn't basketball we are talking about.
I know Strong wasn't happy about the press coverage of Louisville's spring practices, but what makes you think its going to be any better in Lexington with John Calipari as the head coach? Louisville also has a newer stadium and better practice facilities, which is something Rich Brooks constantly complained about his entire time in Lexington.
If Strong wins the Big East this year and he will have a very good shot at it, he will be in the mix for a better job than Kentucky.
UK needs an up and coming assistant or a head coach at a mid-major school with a gimmick offense that will put fans in the seats. Malzahn makes the most sense, as he has coached in the SEC, but is more likely to take over at Arkansas if the wheels fall off this season.
