    One can only imagine what Coach Cal’s first Kentucky team would have done if Jodie Meeks had decided to return for his Senior Year. Wall, Bledsoe, Patterson, Cousins, Orton, Liggins, Miller and others.

    Barnhart needs to be kicked in the junk for ever hiring Gillispie.

  3. Not Dan Issel

    Yep. Should have hired Cal immediately after Tubby left, if not even sooner when P left.

    Always hated those parachute basketball shorts…

    Love the topic … dislike that clip. It doesn’t do justice. There is a much better video available.

    I worked for the athletic department when all this happened and I can say FIRST HAND ACCOUNT, Gillispie is lying in his quote here. I was there and “witnessed” it first hand. This makes me see red!

    While not placing blame, indubitably Billy Clyde G. is one chapter in the storied history of KENTUCKY Basketball that – except for the KENTUCKY Kids – I don’t mind forgetting.

    His first two names alone call to mind recollections of an old southern-white-blonde-pimp-rascal from a ’70’s soap opera.

    Red flag – right there.

      Yes all people should be judged by their names….

    One of the best moments of my childhood watching Kentucky basketball. If only Jodie would’ve stayed for Calipari’s first season and played with Wall and Co. He would’ve been the answer we needed 3 point shooting wise. Also would’ve been a great leader for the younger guys.

    Side note, everyone talks about how great of an Athletic Director Mitch Barnhart is, let’s not forget he hired Joker Phillips before Mark Stoops, and Billy Gillispie before John Calipari. Lol I’m just glad he eventually got the two positions into trustworthy hands.

      I’m sure you would have done much better.

    And he was unaware of the t shirts my ass. Lol
