POWER FORWARD??? TUBBY DONT KNOW WHAT A POWER FORWARD IS. IF HE DID HE WOULD RECRUIT ONE! WHO WAS THE LAST TRUE P.F. THAT NUMB NUTS GOT? NOT SOMEBODY WHO PLAYED OUT OF POSITION, BUT A REAL POWER FORWARD. WHO EVER IT WAS THEY PROBABLY SUCKED. ALL OF HIS RECRUITS SUCK SO IT DONT EVEN MATTER. I SAY FIRE TUBBY AND HIS FUNKY BUNCH AND KICK ALL THE PLAYERS TO THE CURB AND START FRESH. REBUILD... HELL, WE'VE BEEN "REBUILDING" EVERY YEAR! WHATS THE DIFFERENCE???? PEOPLE, DONT GET ME WRONG. I'M A HARD CORE KENTUCKY FAN AND I EXPECT NOTHING LESS THAN A PERFECT SEASON. SURE YOU CANT WIN THEM ALL, BUT YOU CAN COME CLOSE. THE SEC SHOULD BE A CAKE WALK IF WE HAD A COACH THAT WOULD MOTIVATE HIS PLAYERS. MAKE THEM BELEIVE. MAKE THEM UNDERSTAND WHAT KENTUCKY IS ABOUT. INSTEAD, WE HAVE A COACH THAT THINKS A 20 WIN SEASON IS GOOD ENOUGH!! THAT CRAZY!!! HOW CAN THE PLAYERS HAVE THE PASION, THE HEART, ATTITUDE AND SWAGGER TO PLAY AT KENTUCKY IF THE DAMN COACH DONT? ITS ALL ABOUT A PAY CHECH TO THAT JERK AND HIS SO CALLED STAFF! AND HOW BIG OF A STAFF DOES HE NEED?? THAT JUST TELLS ME HE DONT KNOW WHAT THE HELL IS GOING ON. HE HAS AN ASSISTANT FOR EVERYTHING. SOMEBODY NEEDS TO "ASSIST" AND FIRE HIM!!!!!!!!!!

two things that stand out more than anything else. rebuilding every year and settling for 20 wins every season. for some reason those tubby supporters just dont get it ! at kentucky , we should be reloading not rebuilding . duke reloads every year and last i checked they are not the winningest program of all time. kentucky is ! so why cant we reload every year too ! settling for twenty wins and a six to eight seed in the dance is pathetic for a school of kentuckys statue. tubby coaches and recruits like kentucky is a small time school . maybe at georgia 20 wins every year is satisfactory but not kentucky . time for tubby to go !

class is what class writes! as a kentucky supporter and lifelong fan of the program i can tell you that the problem is the "educated" fan base like you. sure there are things that tubby could do differently yet i'm sure that if i were to ask your boyfriends if you could do things differently they would rather you make $10/hr not $5.75.
the players that have been with the cats recently have been cancers. tubby has done the proper thing in "standing behind" there decision to leave. pride is what this team needs. look at gmu, they made it to the final four on pride. without the prima's KY will rise again. tubby is the perfect man for the job. he is class. it truly is a shame that simpletons cause recruits and others to sour.

TUBBY IS RIGHT FOR THE JOB???????? ARE YOU SURE?? HAVE YOU REALLY BEEN WATCHING ANY OF THE GAMES OR ARE YOU JUST ONE OF THOSE BLIND AND STUPID MORONS THAT WOULD EAT A MILE OF TUBBY'S S**T AND ASK FOR MORE? I GUESS YOU ARE. "CLASS"? CLASS MY ASS!!! I DONT GIVE A DAMN ABOUT CLASS. DOES "CLASS" WIN CHAMPIONSHIPS? HELL NO!!! ALL THE TUBBY LOVERS ARE THE DUMBEST BUNCH OF JERKS I'VE HEARD OF. YOU KNOW, I WENT TO RUPP A FEW YEARS AGO WHEN U.K. PLAYED MICHIGAN STATE. WE SHOULD HAVE ONE THAT AND A BUNCH OF OTHERS. AND I DONT CARE ABOUT THE REST OF THAT SEASON, ANYWAY, WHEN WE LOST I WAS SO PISSED I LOOKED AROUND ME AND I SAW SOME KENTUCKY FANS CLAPPING AND SAYING "WE TRIED". I FELT LIKE KICKING SOME ASS!! I WOULD HAVE KNOCKED OUT THEIR TEETH IF THEY HAD ANY!! MY POINT IS WE NEED TO WIN GAMES. 99.9% OF THE GAMES!! TUBBY LOVERS, YOU GUYS SUCK!! AFTER WE LOST TO VANDY LAST YEAR AT HOME TUBBYS ASS SHOULD HAVE BEEN FIRED. TUBBY NEEDS TO GO AND HE NEEDS TO TAKE ALL THE TUBBY LOVERS WITH HIM!!!!! I JUST REALIZED SOMETHING. I KNOW WHY SOME PEOPLE LOVE TUBBY. IT'S THE RESULT OF IMBREEDING!!! YOUR MOM AND DAD ARE BROTHER AND SISTER. YOU PEOPLE REALLY DONT KNOW ANY BETTER. SO YA'LL GO OUT AND BANG A COW FOR 'OL TUBBY!!

Diddy, everyone has their opinion including you. I don't think that putting everybody down really gets your point across. It just makes you sound stupid. Writing your comments in lower case would help. You don't have to shout. I think this has to be Tubby's final chance to get something done. We have to go deep into the tournament. If he doesn't then he has to go. Maybe we could lure Billy Donovan out of Florida for the right price?

shouting or not shouting , wyatt seems to be satisfied that duke will once again be playing for a national championship and kentucky will settle for a 20 win season and maybe a ninth seed. in the mean time all those big name recruits who want to win will shun kentucky and commit to another school. wyatt will be proud because kentucky has class. vandy has class too and how many championships have they won? duke has class too. whom , maybe wyatt is confusing class with what it takes to be the winningest program of all time. by the way , wyatt , guess what ! let me shout this to you. very loud and clear , if kentucky continues to settle for tubby ball and 20 win seasons , soon the winninest program of all time will be from chapel hill . not lexington. GET IT !

are you really a uk fan??? if i didnt no better i would think you were from north carolina trying to put down our program to build up yours. So what uk had a down year where they had over 20 wins and lost to the most talented team in the nation by 5 points in the second round of the ncaa not the nit. tubby has a very solid recruiting class this year and we will have a solid season next year.

as a uk fan , i am concerned. at this time , one has to wonder when ( not if ) north carolina catches us. tubby has the program headed in the same direction as eddie sutton. the only difference is tubby does not cheat. uk did have a down year last year however since tubby has been coach , uk has been rebuilding not reloading more than 50 percent of the time. plus many top recruits have avoided kentucky like the plague. duke seems to reload every year , kentucky should be doing the same. only the coach can be blamed for that.

TUBBY DOES NOT HAVE A SOLID CLASS COMING IN!! HE HAS AN AVERAGE CLASS COMING IN. NONE OF THEM ARE IN THE TOP 50 IN RIVALS HOOP. IT WILL BE THE SAME THING. MISSED FREE THROWS AND MISSED 3'S. SLOW OFFENCE AND STUPID SUBBING. BUT SOME OF YOU PEOPLE OUT THERE SEEM TO LOVE THAT S**T BUT NOT ME. TUBBYS COACHING STYLE DOES NOT FIT AT THIS PROGRAM. I JUST HOPE ITS NOT TOO LATE FOR PROGRAM TO REBOUND FROM TUBBY RUNNING IT IN THE MUD. AND AS FOR DIDDY IN KY, YOU ARE AN AVERAGE FAN. YOU SAY LOST BY 5 POINTS TO UCON, WHATS THE DIFFERENCE 5 POINTS OR 50 POINTS? A LOSE IS A LOSE. THE WILDCATS WILL NEVER WIN ANOTHER N.CHAMPIONSHIP WHILE TUBBY IS THERE. ITS SAD BUT TRUE!!!!!!!!!!

tubbys recruiting class is not satisfactory for a school of kentuckys elite status. yes , i say elite , because we have more wins then any other school. so , why is tubby recruiting like we are an average school ? this is not georgia folks. this is not turlane folks. kentucky is expected to contend. rebuilding once a decade maybe , but every two out of three years just does not cut it. 5 points to uconn and saying that made their season ? come on people this is kentucky , the season is not made unless we win a championship. it is just like the yankees folks ; there season is not complete and they have accomplished nothing unless they win it all. kentucky had that attitude. duke has that attitude. north carolina has regained that attitude. this is not a small time school where average is great. this is not george mason , this is kentucky ! we are suppose to contend for a title every year. duke does ! bottom line is tubby just can not handle the job. it is time for him to go!
