The coach is a protege of Calipari. Tony Barbee. This is year number 4 for him on a 5 year contract. He needs to start winning some games.
I don't know who we'd get, otherwise. At this point, I would take Bruce Pearl.
Honestly, not a bad choice. He would be a good guy to build the program if Barbee can't get it done. But with his past, may be hard for him this soon to get a job.

If he'd only smoked weed or hung out with college kids after games, one year and he'd be welcomed back. But lying to everyone probably won't be forgiven so easily. Rick Pitino can have a 15 second sexcapade and pay for an abortion and all is forgotten. Lie to the NCAA? Curtains.

It is kind of sad when you lose 3 games and your season was considered a failure, or you don't make it to final four you are a loser.

Some fans just can't sit and enjoy a good football or basketball game. If you win, great, if you lose and try hard, we will get them next time.

I tend to change channels and find the closest games and watch them. Usually pick the underdog.

Welcome to being a Georgia football fan.

I have never seen a fan base so perpetually angry at a consistently winning coach. Mark Richt is the epitome of damned if you do, damned if you don't.

They beat Florida on Saturday, 23-20, but all you hear out of Georgia fans is "but we blew a 20 point lead!"

Stupid.

Pearl is a fantastic recruiter and game coach. Had it made in Knoxville.

For the life of me I cannot understand why he did what he did, and when he did it. When you have Lane Kiffin sitting across the hall and running his amateur hour show, Pearl had the perfect template on how to not conduct himself.

Once his show cause expires, he will coach again. Just not in the SEC.

I know football is in the Bible but I can't seem to find basketball.

I thought this thread was about Atheism.

Sports are much more popular.

Oh, well.

And fun.

Atheism is about as much fun as self-performing dental surgery.

Atheism is totally fun, William. Way more fun than Christianity.

Way more fun than sports, if you ask me, but I do admire how passionate you all are about following sports. I sometimes get that way about entertainment - I end up neglecting the "show" to concern myself with the careers and motivations of the actors, musicians and film-makers - I find it interesting how entertainment influences people.

Shouldn't you blame "secularism" for creating Atheists, rather than Protestantism? Or I guess you consider Protestantism to be secular.. so, how about the Devil? Why not just blame Satan for creating Atheists?

I can only blame myself - I believe Atheism occurred to me because it is my natural state of being. I was a perfectly good Christian - who do you blame for my corruption?

"Does Protestantism Lead to Atheism."

How could I have ever imagined that this thread has anything to do with Atheism? Silly me.

How is that crap? Where you born an Atheist or with the knowledge of Christianity? Suppose no one ever taught you religious beliefs or Catholic doctrines - how could you be a Christian - would it occur to you naturally?

You won't find a school to train Atheists because Atheism does not have to be taught. Atheism is an extension of logic.

No, MarkEden, that it YOU, specifically, telling me that. I find it hard to believe, however, by the way you faithfully read and respond to my posts.

You express your narrow-mindedness when you deny that anyone's opinion other than your own is unsubstantiated. Everyone is crap who is not just like you? Not true, MarkEden, you are just arrogant.

Your political and religious ideas concern controlling "the people", but what I have noticed is that you do not even LIKE "the people", as a matter of fact, it seems like you are disgusted by everyone.

Why should anyone follow your advice? It's so self-centered.

Isn't it obvious that I have not attended any University in California? I am a simpleton, William - however, I grasp Atheism completely because it is such a simple concept. You don't have to TRY to become an Atheist, it happens naturally when you rid yourself of false knowledge.

So you can walk outside on a crystal clear moonless night there in beautiful West Virginia and gaze up into infinity and not sense the presence of God?
