1:15pm Press Conference
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.

When all is said and done more is said than done.
They blew it Razor. UK missed the boat by not hiring our guy.
So you're saying it is not Billy Donovan or Thad Matta?

Your Mom is happy.
They were going to get them a Billy one way or another.
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.
I have to admit to knowing zero about Gillespie prior to his hiring [yeah I knew he was the A&M coach, but thats about it] but reading what I've read this morning and I feel comfortable. He's young, not married, and bleeds basketball. UK needs someone like that in my eyes.
Put me in the happy with the hire column.
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
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".Originally Posted by BRM
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 !
