    Re: University of Kentucky Basketball

    Who do you think should have played who hasn't?

    Michael Porter? DeAndre is FINALLY showing GLIMPSES of being coachable.

    Ramon Harris? Darius Miller has been given as many minutes as he has demonstrated being able to handle.

    I don't see it.

    I've also been reading that Jon Hood may be the most likely to opt out if Gillispie is fired, not Daniel Orton.

    I find this hard to believe, since he is from Kentucky. Normally somebody coming out of state would be more likely to make a change instead of somebody in-state. The speculation is that if Ford comes to Kentucky, Hood will not.

    I would be incredibly disappointed if they hired Ford.

    I don't want Donovan, but he'd probably be the best option available after BCG...

    And Hood and Ford are from the same hometown, yes? I don't care for Ford either. Maybe in a couple years, but... He would be about my 6th pick of the semi-realistic options right now.

    Re: University of Kentucky Basketball

    Though BCG sometimes baffles me with his coaching moves, any coach would and the same for a baseball manager.
    As far as media relations, this is where BCG has really let me down.
    Growing up...the UK call in shows as well as pre and post game radio shows have been a major part of UK basketball to me.
    Joe Hall- Eddie Sutton-Slick Rick- & Tubby all had the savy that made listening to the shows fun.
    With BG, I have listened to a part of two shows this season and that is all. I dont even listen to the pre and post game coaches show as I feel sorry for Leach as he has to ask the coach things "on pins and needles" as saying goes.

    I was really glad Bob V was on the game the other night and pointed out to everyone that this is about more than wins/losses.
    Obviously....he has insight to the situation being in the area.
    I am not saying BG has to go but I certainly miss the enjoyment of listening to these shows and all things connected to UK in the media.
    If he stays, I hope this part of his personality improves.

    I agree Rocko. I think when UK is winning more basketball games--if BCG is still here--his personality will improve. haha.

    Thanks for bringing up Bob V. Let me just say that Bob V. and John Saunders absolutely blow Dykes and Nessler out of the water. I mean those two shouldn't be allowed to claim the same profession as those two. What I would give to have those two as the primary crew for the SEC instead of Dykes and Nessler.

    I don't think so.

    UK is scared of him b/c of his "shady" reputation and he's got maybe the best class in the modern history of recruiting coming in next season.

    I don't see it at all.

    So do these articles basically make it seem like a two horse race with Donovan and Ford ? (all assuming BG is let go )

    BTW....Let's beat them Irish !

    That's what it seems like. I think it will be Donovan, from everything I am reading and hearing.

    He will have the local media eating out of the palm of his hand and can certainly recruit UK... can likely retain the recruits as well.

    I just really hate it for BCG. Many of his problems have been of his own making, but I really hate that he's not being given one more year to try and grow into the "OTHER" aspects of being the head coach at UK. Like I said, with the team UK would have next year under BCG he'd likely be a bit more affable and these things wouldn't matter 5% as much anyway. It is, obviously, a results driven business.

    WMR , have you ever heard any reports on how he handled the media & such at A & M ? Of course, I am sure the UK job has more media dealings than A & M though.

    Probably the early home losses ( VMI & Miami) put him behind the 8 ball right away this season as far as pressure he felt.

    Nope, I don't think so, Lee Todd isn't a fan of Calipari. Many influential people wanted him last time, when Gillispie was hired, but Todd wouldn't budge. This time has been no different so far.

    He's always been a little surly and has never LIKED the media. When his team's aren't playing well he certainly doesn't get NICER. haha.
