Billy Gillispie tells you how to beat Kentucky

For some reason, the people at Campus Insiders are still letting Billy Gillispie do this college basketball commentary thing. In the latest segment, Gillispie compares the coaching styles of Roy Williams and John Calipari. Gillispie says Williams “sticks to the system,” recruiting players who will fit his style, while Cal “tweaks his system” based on the players he gets each year. Gillispie’s keys to beating the Cats?

— Get back in transition

Smirk

— Force shots from the perimeter

Tell Krebs to get you a refill

— Attack their depth

Pop Tarts

When asked which team he’d rather face this season (a situation only possible in hypothetical land), Gillispie said the Cats because they’ve got a brand new team and are missing the veteran leadership they’ve had in the past. That is actually all true, but hardly earth-shattering analysis.

And yes, that is the same Brian McFayden that was on MTV back in the day. I’m sure he’s asking himself what he’s doing there just as much as you are.

    The best way for a team to beat Kentucky is to convince them to rehire Billy Gillispie.

    Anyone see what matt just tweeted? Talk about being a hypocrite. Matt has put out so much false info and been wrong so many times. Pot meet kettle.

    How do you beat Kentucky? Well young man, that’s not a very good question on your part…. They are a Team and Cal is just one guy! That’s just a silly question on your part! Are you partnered with Jennie at ESPN or what?

    I actually think Gillispie gave a fair assessment, and was very complimentary towards Calipari and UK. I don’t see the need to shade this like he was backhanding UK.

    You want to know how to beat Kentucky, just show up for the game.

    9.) It’s not that we took his comments as backhanded, it’s that we hate him that much. He is the only man, who in fact would know for sure how to make UK lose.

    LOL, take a hike Clyde. First figure out how to beat Gardner-Webb, then figure out how to beat KY.

    I mean, there are a hundred jokes for this. Lob it right over the plate, Billy. The number one way to beat Kentucky is to assemble a roster of players that Gillispie recruited and have them put on Kentucky jerseys.

    Uggghhhh, hell, he’s one to really give advice how to beat someone. If I remember correctly, he couldn’t even beat Gardner-Webb! Sure glad that clown isn’t here any longer, we’d probably be setting records for the most losses in a season.

    BCG only said “very very” once which is very very unusual.

    We could try Clyde’s technique of stuffing them in bathroom stalls during halftime. That seemed to work for him.
