    who cares. It’s not like the entire academic realm of UK revolves arounds the two basketball graduates. It will be okay people, it will be okay

    4. This would be bad no matter who the graduate is. It happens to be Miller and we all are like family to him & Eloy, thus our reaction that it’s embarrassing. Plenty of us care.

    5. very true. I’m not saying its not a big deal to the family. But, I’m sure the people make mistakes when there are 5000 names to type on a program which is why i just don’t see the point in getting too upset over the fact it happened. I’m sure it happened to some nerd with a computer science degree who did just as much work to graduate as a bball player. I love the ball team, but sometime the little things that get people made is just a little annoying.

    Hence why I propose that anyone making over $100,000 a year at UK be mandated to proof the “results” of the University.

    Each person gets a column from the graduate list to proof – that they are responsible for.

    Graduates as the results. The reason for the University. If someone has the ability to be valued by the University above $100,000, they should be “responsible” for seeing the final results are documented with the highest of esteem.

    This is unacceptable – Dr. Eli Capilouto. No more videos for you! You will be held accountable and reviewed under the strictest limits of academic disciplinary review.

    Hey 11, “that they are responsible for”

    Shouldn’t that read “for which they are responsible?”

    Grammar … it’s not just the nickname for your grandmother.

    That’s why I’m takin my talents to the League friends. Couldn’t take seeing my name misspelled when I graduated.

    I remember that McClintock kid. He knew how to play tough. He was tough and had a great video. I would have offered him in 5th grade.

    There is no excuse for misspelling anyone’s name on a graduation program. The person responsible for this should be fired. Ridiculous!

    13–We used to have neighbors who were refugees from The Democratic Republic of the Congo. They had a huge family. One of their daughters was named Thank You God. She was born in a refugee camp in Tanzania when the family found out they were going to be able to come to the US and in appreciation to God they gave her her name. They call her Thank You for short. It reminds me of Gods Gift Aichua (sp?).

    One of my wife friends got a Masters degree and the official diploma had the wrong field of study listed. Took her like a year to get it a corrected.

    More UK embarrassment

    Lip service #1 “UK wants and will encourage the brightest and best Kentucky students to stay in Kentucky and go to UK.” Total BS.

    Lip service #2 “When doing business, UK always looks at Kentucky businesses first, and disadvantaged or minority owned businesses have even higher priority.” …The truth, Bribes speak louder than in state loyalty.

    Shame on UK for saying such things with no intention of doing either.
