Anywa, what I HAVE heard, is that if the decision can be wrested from Meeetchy , similarly to how it was done with Cal, there would be between 4-6 million for a head coach. Meetch and Lee Todd are the major road blocks, unfortunately.
Lee Todd is gone, so I would imagine it would be Eli Capiluto.
The fans have no faith in the product on the field right now, evidenced by the return of almost half the tickets for the Kentucky-Louisville game at Louisville.
There are some pieces in place, but I don't see Joker being the coach who capitalizes on it. I said it last year that Kentucky needs an innovative coach who has a gimmick that they can try in the SEC. UK needed to get rid of Joker but I am afraid they did it a year too late.
I tend to agree with Scrap. I think Western Kentucky will beat UK this year, and Joker will be walking around with a tiki torch under his seat. I'm predicting three wins and Joker fired/resigns midseason with Rick Minter taking over for the rest of the season.
