i think our new coach needs to crack the whip harder and on off days work the boys so hard they won't ever want to loose! the problem is once they get the scholarship its all down hill. they should want to win as bad as we the fans do. To wear the UK colors is an honor many would like but few get the chance. Come on boys get your heart in the game and your shots will hit all the time,ask any UK champion you have to care. I haven't seen it yet.

Exactly, you are the only one who actually believes UK is down. They start two walk-ons for crying out loud.

i have been telling you they are down for two weeks there orangeman , and you kept coming back with statements as if they are good team getting their butts kicked. tubby left a big mess. 2 seniors who play like underclassmen , 1 junior who is still a project and he is a 7 footer. the best five are freshman and 2 of the best sophmores are hurt. heck , syracuse loses one star and their season is in trouble. this kentucky team is playing for next year. you seem to think kentucky is NIT. this team will be lucky to break even. the great thing is just like every year , this year they play a tough schedule and these kids are getting their feet wet. kentucky will be back. just like pitino had to clean up suttons mess , so must billy g clean up tubbys mess.

Tony Montana, you are so smart !!!!! Billy G. was hired because he supposably can take a bad team and make them great. He is off to a good start so far ( KY is 4-5) hahahahaha !!! Anyway everyone always talks about the big turn arounds he has had at programs. let's not forget that at Texas A&m the big 6 win season was a billy g coached team . The league he was in is no way comparable to the S.E.C . So this time it won't be easy. FIRE Billy G. and hire Travis Ford !!!!!!

i guess all those experienced upper class man that tubby left billy g really havent panned out. he has so many to work with and they should be ranked in the top 5 right now with all that experience.
YOU DONT KNOW MUCH ABOUT BASKETBALL DO YOU ? do you think pitino won a championship his first few years with suttons players ? give billy a chance to recruit his players and build his team. tubbys mess isnt fixable in one season.

the embarrassment came last year. tubby being one of if not the highest paid coach in ncaa , and he just wanted to keep rebuilding. always getting shunned by the big recruits , losing double digits every year , and never contending for the championship.

Yea, I was looking at there recruits and Tubby was getting 1 and 2 stars. What the hell Tubby you are coaching UK get a decent player! What I don't understand is why Billy G plays that Porter and that Coury kid. Makes no sense.

I wouldn't mind the looses if the teams were at least average. UK was 25 or 30 point favorite and lost to Gardner Web. One of the worst lost in history. Tubby never lost to teams with RPI so low.

Notice how the Fans will turn on their current UK players, in order to defend the new guy Billy G. I would never want any of my children playing for UK. They treat players like live stock.

UK has time to start looking for another coach. UK boosters going to have to find a way to get rid of this guy....maybe hide a few beers bottles in his locker or something.

For now let's keep blaming the players. Let's call them lazy and unintelligent. Tubby wild and crazy players haven't brought into Billy system yet.

based on your logic , rick pitino should have been fired his first year at kentucky . you seem to think billy g is suppose to be magic and snap his fingers. turning the recruits that TUBBY recruited into superstars. bet you think michael jordan didnt travel a lot too and i bet you have no idea what palming is either. learn the game son. you are ignorant about what it takes to play and coach the college game. if tubby was at any other big time college program , he would have been canned long before he got a chance to destroy the team.

People I don't hate UK I really don't!!!! Billy G is a great recruiter. Absolutley phenomenal. He can't coach, he just can't. His players look lost and so does he. I think you guys will go to some sweet 16 and elite eights but you guys will never get a championship with him. He can't coach. He is a raw coach but a remarkable recruiter. He did good at A&M and UTEP but he isn't a good enough COACH to make a big run. Stay calm UK fans. Boeheim came in to Syracuse and he has turned us into a powerhouse program. Just stay calm good things will come but not GREAT things will come with Billy.
