    Tubby got out while the gettin' was good. It's going to take Billy G time to right the ship and install his system.

    Imagine if we DIDN'T have Legion or Patterson???

    Patterson wasn't even on the radar till Billy G was hired.

    Just look at the sequence of events. That's all I'm saying.

    Patterson wasn't seriously considering Kentucky until Billy G is what Wily Mo is saying.

    Kentucky is a school 7 out of 10 top prospects list as a school they want to go to just on reputation, but its like listing, and I hate to admit this but its like a free agent in baseball saying they are considering the Yankees.

    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

    Not according to everything I heard leading up to the firing of Tubby. Patterson and Lucas were both seriously considering UK with Tubby as the coach along with someone else who backed out. The talk following the Tubby dismissal was whether or not a new coach could hold onto the recruiting class Tubby was assembling. Gillespie kept Patterson but lost Lucas, who may not have come anyway. He did score Legion who wasn't on the radar. Maybe thats who you're thinking of.

    Agree, but there was more to this courtship.

    From an article on Rivals.com regarding Patterson's recruitment:

    It was believed Patterson earlier favored Kentucky but may have wavered when head coach Tubby Smith left after last season for the same position at Minnesota. But Smith's replacement, Billy Gillespie, continued to court Patterson. He was the guest speaker on May 7 at the post-season Highlander basketball banquet attended also by Wildcat assistant coach Jeremy Cox.
    I also found similar articles in the databases for the Courier-Journal and Kentucky Democrat. Gillespie did a good job of holding the class together and substituting Legion for Lucas but it likely would have been a good and similar class if Tubby would have stayed.

    Blame Tubby if you want but the 2007 recruiting class was primarily his work.

    Legion had signed with Michigan, but was granted a release after Amaker was fired.

    I give Gillespie credit for the actual signing of Patterson, but to say Tubby didn't grease the wheels for UK is a bit disingenuous.

    I don't really follow basketball that much but is it just me or does Kentucky lose a "Shocking" game in the 1st week or 2 of the season and then only lose once or twice the rest of the season every year?
