    Re: BILLY G. to KY.

    Here's a great article about Billy G. He looks like a near perfect fit to be UK basketball Coach. He eats,sleeps and drinks basketball. All UK fans should read this and should be very excited about this hire. Time will tell if this is a great hire but as of right now it is! He kinda reminds of a young coach UK hired back in 1989.

    They will live to regret this decision.

    So you're saying it is not Billy Donovan or Thad Matta?

    They were going to get them a Billy one way or another.

    Re: BILLY G. to KY.

    The choice is not being received well by the fans on talk radio here. Billy G had just gotten a big bump in P.A.Y. to over $2 million, so they thought he was at A&M to stay. Being jilted at the foot of the money tree doesn't help their self-esteem, which was at an all-time high after 2 trips to the Sweet 16.

    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.

    Billy G. seems to have been the third choice, after Billy D. and Rick Barnes. He's a good coach, but they do appear to be settling.

    Barnes supposedly declined an interview as well, saying "why talk to someone who considers you a second choice coach".

    So if a "single" Rick Barnes meets his long time love ,Janet, (fictitious name)
    who he loved all his life but she loved someone else.
    Well Janet catches her guy cheating on her and calls up Barnes and says "Rick....how about it"

    Would Rick say " No Janet....I was your 2nd choice" ?

    Anyway....I am glad Mr Barnes(who I was not a big fan of) did this and I am okay with BG !

    WVU got a lets see.... 4th choice coach last time when they got John Beilien. I think its safe to say it was a good choice.

    Once Donovan said no, they were going to appear to be settling regardless of who they hired. I posted this last night, but Gillispie was my #2 choice behind Donovan, and I'm as happy as could be.

    I'm not sure how big his office is, but I would consider that a small sample size. Everyone I've chatted with this morning is pleased. The worst thing I've heard about Gillispie is "I'm not familiar enough with him to have a strong opinion".
