If that is correct then why are the best Kentucky boys going to other teams like Notre Dame, Mississippi State, and Vanderbilt? I agree with you that is the mindset of most Kentucky boys, but I am afraid that has changed under Tubby.

I only wish you were correct, however, it seems that we have sunk into the second division of the SEC, and into the end of top 25 teams in the NCAA., No longer do we send chills down the spine of opposing teams like we used to. I wonder who is to blame for that. Could the culprits be named Barnhart and Smith?

Come on guys, Tubby is very popular in Florida, and the rest of the Sec towns. Long live Tubby and the Wildcats.

barnhart has done a hell of a job at uk. look at womens b-ball & soccer. look at mens baseball & there is a 30 some million dollar practice facility being built. he had his hands tied in football, least you forget he had parcells untill jerry jones came in with his open checkbook. hell i dont think vince lombardi could do a much better job so far but it is cuttoff time & next year should be the year u judge brooks on either win at least 6 or out, this is the sec so u have to take that into account. if there is a mens basketball coach opening i want barnhart hiring the replacement. if dreams do come true it would be nice to have pat riley finish his career here.

tubby on the other hand is starting to get old. while i know he is a great coach i dont think uk is the right place for him. however who do u replace him with. he also could end up back in the sec & make us regret loosing him.

no im not 2 faced & why bring up race that dog wont hunt. incase you tubby bashers out there dont know but to getr rid of tubby uk would have to pay out the rest of his contract which goes to 2011 @ 2.5 mill/year. FAT CHANCE ON THAT however tubby can leave whenever he wants. as far as im concerned he is still a great coach & we are lucky to have had him. i am ready to see a change because like all wildcat fans i expect the best & we have kind of fallen off but you have to take the good with the bad. tubby does have the highest winning % of any uk coach in history. uk will rise back to the top with or without tubby. one good thing about tubby is with him at the helm we dont have to worry about any NCAA violations. hell adolph rupp still had his off years. i do strongly agree that it is time to shit or get off the pot for tubby. he is still a great coach so go or stay we cant go wrong but that is just my opinion.
