    Kentucky lands Patrick Patterson

    Billy Gillispie has already landed two big recruits since coming to Lexington. The fact that UK still got Patterson even with the coaching change is what amazes me, although distance played a factor in it.

    No big shock considering the distance from Huntington to Lexington. It is still impressive, though.

    Re: Kentucky lands Patrick Patterson

    The tide really turned for UK during the last seven days. After Gillispie spoke at Patterson's team banquet last month, things began to heat up considerably. For some reason, Patterson had not hosted his maximum number of "home visits" by schools this spring. As a result, Gillispie was allowed to bring two of his assistants to the Patterson home during UK's visit there last week. Apparently, the triad of coaches were very impressive to Patrick's mom and the trip apparently sealed the deal.

    I have to admit, I lost quite a bit of hope on Monday after Jai Lucas signed with the Gators. I figured his close friendship with Patterson would be the tipping point.

    I'd post a picture of Ashley Judd but I don't want to offend anyone's sensibilities.

    Finally a coach that knows how to utilize the greatness of the UK tradition, facilities, and cache to maximize recruiting!!

    Actually Patterson said he had been on the phone with him quit a bit but he also said Legion( BG other recruit) has been calling as well.
    To me Billy Clyde surely has been using the Donovan to NBA rumours as more surfaced yesterday.
    Anyway....is all I can say is .......Andy Katz..........

    No way Patterson comes to UK with Tubby still the coach. G has done more recruiting the last 4 weeks than Tubby did the last 4 years.

    We're back baby.
    Not this year...maybe a Wild Card

    Where are all the UK fans who thought BG was a terrible hire? I swear, it seemed like no one outside of Lexington ever heard of the guy at the time of the hire.

    If by "back" you mean "completely delusional once again", then yes, you're back.

    Ahhh, the best part of being back, the haters return like when the lights go out in a cockroach infested kitchen.
