    Not so fast, my friend. I thought they would get one tonight too. But when you don't guard people... 90 to that team... ugly.

It shouldn't be that hard to fill in around them with useful role players, especially for a guy who can recruit like Gillispie, and in a sport where other high-profile programs like Kansas or UNC can get back to the Tournament with little suspense despite practically replacing the entire team from the year before. Something's not quite right and I'm not sure what.
    You oughta check out Ben Howland's first two seasons at UCLA, or Coach K's first two years at Duke.

    Part of the problem in Lexington are its fans.

    UCLA recruits itself.

    Ben Howland's team got seven wins better and made the tournament in his second year. I think there are very few who would say they've seen any improvement in the performance of this UK team since Gillispie took over.

    No improvement last year?

    It's a lot easier to see the light turn on for freshmen when they've got seniors leading the way.

    Steve Lavin's last UCLA team won less than 10 games.

    Edit. Sorry. They were actually 10-19.

    Ever been to Pauley Pavillion? Dump. They don't even have concession stands inside the building anymore. And I don't imagine the pac 10s tv contract helps. 17 year old kids could give a hoot about dusty old banners and a 90 year old dude in the front row.

    I was thinking more of Los Angeles, babes, and the beach.

    Case in point. Last loss---people in one of my classes (at UK) said UK needed a new coach.
