The difference bewtween IU and UK right now is that IU's team really stepped up when we were down a number of starters in the middle of the pre-con sked. UK's team layed down and got hammered repeatedly.

Patterson is the only person on that team that has any shot at being an NBA prospect. And he may be gone after this year.

UK fans are getting their just-due for running Tubby out. And look at them still trying to pin the blame on him. They would have more than 5 wins if he was the coach still. Better get it turned around quick Bill or its going to be a short stay in Lexington.

Uh,'Let's go Hoosiers,' stay focused on IU and their upcoming NCAA probation, since you have no idea what you're talking about with UK.
First off, UK fans did not run Tubby off, nor was he fired. Tubby began negotiations with Minnesota LAST DECEMBER, after refusing numerous requests from the AD to make internal changes to the program.
Tubby had burned out, and refused to make changes to get the program back up to the level it needed to be. Recruiting was the main result of this lack of focus.
Gillispie is trying to rebuild a program from the ground up, and he's doing it his way. And if he has to sacrifice a couple of non-conference wins in order to get all of the players on the same page, then that's what will build a championship team sooner rather than later.
Bet you now IU will be looking for a coach sooner than UK will!

----------U HAVE NO IDEAL OF WHAT YOU ARE SAYING.. PLEASE STICK TO THE SCRIPT. TUBBY WAS RAN OUT. THE FANS BOUT THAT WORTHLESS CLASS OF SENIORS IN. SUPPOSE TO BE THE BEST CLASS AT THE TIME. TUBBY DOES NOT GO AFTER HIGHLY RECRUITS. PRINCE, HAYES, AZUBUIKE WAS NOT EVEN IN THE TOP 100 THIER SENIOR YEAR AND THEY ARE IN THE LEAGUE COMPARE TO BRACEY WRIGHT MIA IN THE NBA. STICK WITH IU AND THE GOOD YEAR THEY HAVING. YOU HAVE NO CLUE OF UK. BEEN A FAN SINCE EDDIE SUTTON AND JOE B HALL. THEY RAN TUBBY OFF AND THAT'S THE TRUTH. THEY DESERVE TO LOOSE ALL THE GAMES ON THE SCHEDULE. ANY ONE SAYS THAT MINN HAS CUPCAKE ON THE SCHEDULE, ASK WHAT DO YOU CALL HOUSTON AND GARDNER WEBB? CUPCAKES?

Seems to me Coach Davis was ran out of town, too. College coaches are paid way too much $$$$$ to be producing poor results whether at IU or UK. When your welcome is worn out, it's time to go. Good riddens to Tubby and his style of basketball!

& that's why Minn is 7-1 and UK is? Wait til the end of the season IU fans will run off Sampson. Now that is a terrible coach.

Ha Ha Ha!!!

UK blows.

Time to start having dinner at the Lexington pizza places where the boosters slip the cash under the table. I'd recommend FedExing the recruits though. Their packages never get torn.

Kentucky going down in flames is a sweet sight. I couldn't think of a program more deserving.
