According to a source Billy D. bought a horse!

Okay everyone I've held out too long from blogging about this. First off let me just say that I am a huge UK fan and in no way is this me bashing them at all. As you all know this time of the year coaching speculations will start to rise, especially in Lexington when a coach isn't winning. Well it has started for UK. From Billy Donovan coming, to Travis Ford already packing his bags, to even (now get this) even Rick Pitino coming back. I do think that in the next few weeks we will know whether or not Billy G. will be fired or he's staying. I have my own opinion on him, but I do think he should be given at least one more year.

Now in my opinion the root of the problems at UK don't start with the coach, it goes much deeper then that, to the Athletic Director. Mitch Barnhart is the root of the problems. All of our problems start when he came in. The only good thing he has done is extend Rich Brook's contract. Mitch drove Tubby out of Lexington, because they were trying to force him to fire assistant coaches and they would not let him hire on his Son Saul. Mitch is not a Kentucky boy, he has been Athletic Director out in Oregon, and Senior assistant at UT, and we all know nothing good comes from Tennessee. In my opinion Mitch needs to go and they need to bring someone in that knows the history and background of Kentucky, some with the same style as good ole C.M. Newton.

So if Lee Todd and Mitch Barnhart want to get rid of Billy G. Then Lee Todd needs to turn around and get rid of Mitch. So I hope you all like this and please comment, cause by no means am I am the most knowledgable person on this.

I am going to start this rumor about the next coach, so here we go. Jon Voight is the next coachat UK, Jon Voight was the coach in the hit movie "Varsity Blues" and the team colors were blue and white, and he also played Adolph Rupp in "Glory Road" So he wants to live that out by coaching Kentucky.

Fine, I'll comment, just so you'll feel better...

Would everyone shut up about Billy D? He ain't coming!! Neither is Tom Izzo, Coach K, Rick Pitino, Jim Calhoun, Jim Boeheim, Roy Williams or Bill Self. There...now if one of them do come, I'll shut up...or pack up my keyboard, or something...

Billy G needs time, and he needs people to get off his back, every program has the ups and downs, and UK is no exception. We can't change the past, so let's put full effort for the future...

and I will punch you later main...

I will comment as well...imagine that, me commenting on sports. But I disagree that Mitch Barnhart pushed Tubby out. I think if Tubby had REALLY wanted to hire his son or whoever or not fire one of the assistant coaches that they were pressuring him to he could have done it...but Mitch had plenty of help pushing Tubby from all the UK fans. Kind of like what you see now. I think if you wanna know the truth this fits into the entitlement issues all Americans have. We think just because we are a dynasty we deserve to win without having to rebuild or work at it. Just my thoughts.

I agree with Joe.
