    Agreed. I think he's got one year. They might accept one year of 15-15 or something, then all bets are off.

    Championships for MY teams in my lifetime:
    Cincinnati Reds - 75, 76, 90
    Chicago Blackhawks - 10, 13
    University of Kentucky - 78, 96, 98, 12
    Cincinnati Bengals - None
    Chicago Bulls - 91, 92, 93, 96, 97, 98

    Any ideas on who the front runners may be? I know Cats fans would like Billy Donovan but I don't see that happening.

    You'll hear alot of names, mostly thrown out there by UK fans.

    Calipari, Matta, Donovan would be the first ones I'd expect to hear.

    Crean and Ford are more realistic.

    We won't "run anyone off" if they play the caliber basketball the elite programs of the nation expect. It doesn't mean the Final Four every year like moron talking heads suggest. But 25 losses in two years and back to back 8 seeds all the while claiming "I don't see the problem here" ISN'T Kentucky-caliber basketball. I'm sure UNC, Kansas, UCLA, Indiana wouldn't expect any different.

    If I were a Kentucky fan, I'd be looking at John Beilein from WVU. All the guy ever does is win. He took WVU to the Elite 8 and the Sweet 16 in back to back years, and led a young team, that was picked last in the Big East, to the NIT final four, and nearly the Dance.

    He's a proven winner.

    I'm kinda sad things didn't work out with Tubby...he's a very likeable guy and represented the university well. Still, I have no doubt that the program will improve with the right coach. The downward trend of the past several years needed to stop.

    Wouldn't be a bad pick at all.

    Why, because Ricardo Patton is already taken?

    Take this for what its worth because its coming from other message boards but the rumor is that Tom Crean will be the man to replace Tubby.

    Just heard Lorenzo Romar's named dropped by someone "in the know." That would take care of those style of play issues.

    I'll take Crean or Gillispe from T A+M.
