    I think Blimpie mentioned this in a previous thread and I completely agree. I would like to see Kentucky play one game a year in Memorial just for the vintage sake. I honestly believe they could make up revenue just by charging extra for tickets and concessions.

    My idea would be a Kentucky Legends Memorial Game at Memorial Colliseum. Schedule a semi decent team to come to Memorial for a tribute to those who have helped make Kentucky "Kentucky". Cawood Ledford, Bill Keightley, Adolph Rupp, etc.

    Oh I agree. I told someone that today and this first half just confirms it for me.

    All the blue hairs need to be put in nursing homes and/or have their tickets taken away.

    I know it's the NIT, but that was an awesome game. The crowd was just incredible.

    Come on. It's the blue hairs that are going to pay Billy's buyout!

    I don't think folks--not you in particular, Mac--fully appreciate how disastrous it would be for our program if Billy were to leave or get fired after only 2 years on the job both in attracting top-notch coaching candidates and UK's reputation with recruits nationwide.
    I don't agree with this for several reasons. Florida football, Alabama football, NC basketball.

    All three University's had negative press about the firings, and negative press about their crazy fan base. It worked out well for them. It's also harder to turn around a football team than a basketball team on a short term bases. Both football teams turned it around in just 2 seasons...so it did not hurt recruiting, it fact it helped...a lot!

    No player would quit the team or a recruit, until they hired a new coach. Kentucky would have to get a "big name." No "up-and-comer."

    It seems that Seth Davis added a bit of fuel to the rumor fire today on his blog.

    I disagree but BCG isn't going anywhere so it's a moot point anyway.

    Don't you just love it when someone says that they're not going to comment on something and then immediately comment on it? Seth Davis is a joke.

    Yes it was. They were also playing shorthanded as Dwight Anderson broke his wrist in the SEC tournament.
    Great atmosphere in Memorial! It's too bad they can't have that in Rupp. I don't think they will ever play one game a season in Memorial just for the economic reasons. Its too bad because it is a special place.

    Many sports fans in Lexington are questioning why they couldn't simply include that as part of the economic stimulus package. Just yesterday, someone tried to convince me that AIG actually stood for:

    "Axing - Inititative - Gillispie"

    WMR: I hate to bring you down, but Davis is not the only one who is floating these stories.

    He just happens to be working for one of the more visible media outlets at this particular time.

    Blimp: Trust me, BCG isn't going anywhere. This comes from the most trustworthy sources available. It is a tempest in a teapot.
