    Re: UK Football 2012

    Kentucky sports have made more money under Barnhart than they have under any UK AD. Ever. ($91.9 million last year) They're also supporting the most sports of anyone in the SEC, while paying for everything they use AND giving both money and merchandise (reports set the number somewhere between $10 million and $25 million) back to the college itself.

    Absolutely had to be done. I'd argue they did it a year too late however.

    I do hope they let him coach out the remaining two games. If anything, it might get fans in the gates to send Joker off for the final time during the Samford game.

    Kentucky needs to get on the phone with Kirby Smart or Houston Nutt.

    Absolutely not on Houston Nutt, or even David Cutcliffe for that matter, and that's who my ultimate fear is it will be.

    The last thing Kentucky needs is a retread SEC coach such as Houston Nutt or Tommy Tuberville. Bobby Petrino would be the only exception and he is likely headed to Auburn. Kentucky needs a head coach who has a gimmick, because the only way they will compete is to be different than the rest of the SEC.

    I don't see Kirby Smart coming to Lexington either. He is the highest paid assistant in the nation and will likely leave for a better choice of jobs.

    Kentucky not considering hiring Bobby Petrino after firing Joker Phillips.

    Sources tell Yahoo! Sports that the candidate list includes Louisiana Tech coach Sonny Dykes and Atlanta Falcons offensive coordinator Dirk Koetter, plus several college offensive coordinators. Among those believed to be interested in the job are Florida's Brent Pease and Texas Tech's Neal Brown, both of whom have ties to UK – Pease as a former assistant and Brown as a player.

    I'll be surprised if it's not Dykes. It just makes too much sense.

    Dykes is good, but he'll be expensive. He's hot right now. Great offense, though. Breant Peace and Neal Brown would also be fun hires, IMO.

    Were I Barnhart, I'd go after a young, offensive-minded coach with ties to Florida or Texas. Speed is key.

    So Petrino apparently wants the job, and Barnhart is apparently stupid enough not to hire him. This is dumber than hiring Hal Mumme instead of Howard Schnellenberger.

    According to Matt Jones, given the new allegations coming out of Washington State, UK is not going to go anywhere near Mike Leach. Probably a good thing.

    Petrino will likely get hired at Auburn or Tennessee before UK, so looking at realistic candidates, I'm going with Sonny Dykes, Neal Brown (OC at Tex Tech), or Kliff Kingsbury (OC at Tex A&M).

    So glad the JOKEr error is over...

    Unfortunately confidence in Mitch to make a good hire is zero point zero percent...
