    I haven’t heard anything about this anywhere, but Louisiana Tech football has an ESPNU All Access show. I’m watching it right now. Can’t wait for Will Muschamp to say it gives LaTech an unfair recruiting advantage.

    I listened to Finebaum for the first time ever on Monday (first show after loss to A&M) and it was radio gold. I might start listening to this on my way home each day on iheart instead the Lexington crap that’s out there.

    If Ryan Harrow is out for a while, Cal will probably have to look pretty strongly at moving Archie over to full time PG. As much as I like Polson, he just doesn’t have the quickness or athletic ability to defend an elite point guard, as the Duke game demonstrated. Mays doesn’t have the athletic ability to guard opposing PG’s either – don’t know why Cal had him guarding Curry for much of the Duke game.

    One benefit for Archie if this happens is that if he becomes a successful PG, it would probably raise his NBA stock. He may be a little undersized to play 2-guard in the league, and he has the necessary athletic ability to become an NBA PG with enough instruction.

    12 Goodwin will be a 2 in the NBA…he has good size and skill for that position. But it would force him to become a better ball handler and passing threat, which would ensure him a top 10 pick, imo anyway

    We may want to read a little about Greg Roman. He’s the 49er OC. Coached at Stanford w/Harbaugh. Logical west coast NFL assistant as he has college experience & has coached on both sides of the ball. Negative is that he has ZERO southern recruiting contacts.

    1) I’ll take Petrino. I hope it happens. UK would get a winner and his mere presence would drive U of L fans INSANE. Even if he leaves us high and dry, it won’t be until after we’ve won pretty big. We’re high and dry now without winning big. So….

    2) Harrow – Will he play anytime soon or is he in peril with his health? Seriously, when a young man is down like that – it seems serious.

    3) Kudos to Cal for calling out the floppers from Durham. Everyone knows it, so it’s good to hear it put out there.

    Do you really think UT would want Petrino after what Lane Kiffin did to them? I’m not sure, but it will be interesting to see how they proceed.

    I will say that you have to give Barnhart credit for the Joker firing and the timing of it. Sure, you can say that it was an obvious thing to do, but if you’ve kept up with the UT-Dooley situation you would see there are worse ways to handle it.

    WILDCAT FAITHFUL… READ THIS MESSAGE AND REPOST EVERYWHERE

    It’s sad when the guy deciding who your next football coach will be WASN’T AROUND YOUR PROGRAM BEFORE 2002.

    I remember the late 70′s, 80′s and the 90′s (Fran Curci, Jerry Claiborne, Bill Curry, Hal Mumme). My Mom and Dad tell me about the 60′s and the 70′s (Blanton Collier, Charlie Bradshaw, John Ray), and my grandparents tell me about the 40′s and 50′s (A.D. Kirwan, Bernie Shivley, Bear Bryant).

    Think of all the contributions my family & others have made over the years (not just ticket purchases, but Blue/White donations for lower level seats to bball & fball). All the road games we would drive to and support our team no matter the outcome.

    Here we are on the cusp of potential, where an AD who didn’t even know what Blue Blood was 10 years ago, is going to make a decision for me and my family and the future generations of Wildcat Faithful. Who knows if he or his family will be here… but my family will be.

    The Wildcat Faithful is a rare breed in today’s sports. How many programs have been so mediocre for so long yet continued to pack the stadium? No one understands it, but I only hope our message has been understood.

    It’s almost unfair that 1 guy can either make the right move, steer our program into a certain oblivion or make the “safe” choice to protect his job.

    Take a second to think about your job Mitch Barnhart. This isn’t about YOU!

    Give the Wildcat Faithful of the Commonwealth a chance to get all those programs back for having been patient & supportive all these years.

    Take the reduction in attendance this year as a MAJOR sign that “YOU” are on watch. A program who’s fans have always been behind it’s program and always continued to attend even during losing season even when we lost faith in it’s direction. This drastic measure so often taken by other programs fans as their first choice became hesitantly our only card left to play… and we held it back longer than any other programs fans that I can remember.

    This was a direct message to “YOU”.

    Get out of our way, make the decision that will give us a real chance, and by doing so you will be doing your job.

    The biggest problem with the “Know Your Place” comments that Jones keeps dancing around has nothing to do with pecking order in coach selection. It’s that he’s REPEATEDLY, even well before this coaching search, made known that football does not deserve the same treatment as basketball and maintains the loser mentality that UK can never be more than 7 – 8 wins per year.

    And yes Matt, we know – It’s your opinion and we disagree and …..give a freaking break.

    I agree that it may be harder to win a Kentucky in football, however it is not impossible. South Carolina is a great example. Before Spurrier, they were similar to KY in a lot of ways. Yearly bottom dweller in East, not burning up the recruiting trail, and not taken seriously as a football school. Spurrier comes in, changes the culture and now they are a yearly contender in the SEC. It just goes to show you how big of an impact a coach can make. I don’t think we should settle for “we’re kentucky, we should be happy with being mediocre,” becuase that’s just not true.

    And as far as recruiting, yea we don’t have the in state talent that others do, but what about WV, Nebraska, Wisconsin, Iowa, Kansas St. Just need somebody that can go get kids from other states.

    Mono is caused by the Epstein-Barr virus. That is why there isn’t a specific drug to fight it. Here is something from WebMD about strenuous physical activity when you have mono:

    Avoid strenuous exercise and contact sports until the doctor allows resumption of activities. The spleen may be enlarged, and vigorous activity may cause it to rupture. Most doctors believe that a person with mononucleosis should postpone strenuous activities for at least one month after the onset of symptoms or until the spleen has returned to its normal size.

    UK football is THE anomaly of all NCAA Division 1 Football.

    We pack the stadium for 50 years, yet were very mediocre, regularly in the bottom 3 of the SEC East. Most programs don’t go bowling with 6 win seasons, yet with KY’s faithful fans we’re always invited first if we could muster 6 wins. Fans never stopped going for 50 years… Until now.

    Check the stats, this is unprecedented. Lowest attendance in Commonwealth history.

    Why is that we must take for certain that if UT or AU want Petrino, then we have no chance? Jones keeps telling people over and over again that the things they are assuming about Barnhart and potential candidates is only speculation and we don’t know for sure. Why is it that Jones’ opinions are written gospel?

    211) That’s true, but there’s only 1 PG Harrison twin. He would still be the backup with a shot at starting & being the starter in 2014 (I think he’s got that much eligibilty left). It wouldn’t hurt to have some depth there for once. If he plays with Mono, and he plays badly this year, he’ll stay at UK anyway. He’ll needlessly subject himself to a lot more physical and mental stress this year because of what Cal demands of his point guards. Don’t get me wrong- I want him to play this year. I just wouldn’t want him to risk it if he can’t get back to 95-100% because Cal demands 110%.

    The number of off-field problems is a function of both the coach AND the school. It will not be a problem if the school does not allow it.

    Louisville has always off-field problems, and they still do. That’s because the Louisville tolerates it – They even have a trustee that serves as players attorney.

    The final decision on any disciplinary issue is always with the administration and not with the coach.

    My fear is that Sonny Dykes looks so good because his team puts up big numbers on the scoreboard. Well, sure.. he’s a Hal Mumme guy. Mumme was balls to the wall, Air Raid offense. Kentucky scored under Mumme, but we weren’t a good team.
    Sure, LaTech is scoring 53 points a game, but they’re giving up 35 points a game to the likes of Virginia, Rice, and Idaho. Texas A&M lit them up for 59…I’m afraid that’s what other teams would regularly score against a Sonny Dykes UK team.

    232 – You keep slow stroking Calipari and telling yourself that 90% of the teams on UK’s basketball schedule could give a crap if their school ever played another basketball game. Why would you honestly herald being great in game that no one outside of 4 states gives a crap about while at the same time you have no issue whatsover with sucking ass in the game that everyone does care about.

    And don’t give me that Kentucky is a basketball state crap. We’re also in the bottom 5 in every single educational statistic in the country and the unhealthiest state in the union as well.

    I used to really enjoy basketball but so many like you in the fanbase now make me absolutely despise it.

We obviously know that he will see very limited time next year (see Harrisons). We are recruiting Lyle, Jones (offer), Mudiay (offer) and Berry. It looks like Jones and Mudiay are the top options. Would be hard to see Ryan play over either. This could really be a sad story for the young man. I’m hoping this go better for him! BBN

    Passing on Petrino means we won’t experience “4 core values” regarding the treatment of wives, mistresses, etc. We sure we want to do that?!?

    Personally, I would prefer a different coach than Petrino based on his placing his university in danger of lawsuits and his behavior with the volleyball player. However, if he is hired as our coach I will support him, keep my fingers crossed that he indeed is remorseful and has changed, and hope for the best for our football team.

    Matt: To be fair, you need to ask these women if they are SURE our current coach lives up to the behavorial standards they say they won’t tolerate with Petrino.

    Integrity is one of the most important traits that a Kentucky coach should have. I do not want Petrino to be the coach. I don’t care if he can win or not.

    347 is right. These statements are being made in a vaccuum. These women have never spent any time around a football coaching staff. If they did I think they may be a little let down…

    In terms of him cheating on his wife, I don’t see a problem hiring Petrino. I know he’s made mistakes, but haven’t we all? Just saying, as a woman I don’t hate the idea of him being here. Plenty of men have made the same mistakes that he did. And who knows, maybe he has changed? I don’t see how him cheating on his wife has anything to do with him being a good football coach. I would prefer that Kentucky not hire someone with nasty baggage, but I don’t think that should be what makes the decision.

    UK is better than that. Ask why there were suspensions on the team this year. A disciplinarian like Petino won’t have that.

    359) The perception your coach has is huge, especially with women. Many of the top recruits only have thier mothers, and if you have a coach who women don’t like, even women who are UK fans, that doesn’t bode well for Petrino outside the state.

    Mono is common amongst college students. As for basketball players, I remember Duke’s Shavlik Randolph and Jon Scheyer had mono. They were fine in the end. No worries. Harrow will be back to full strength.

    Our ladies looked so small compared to the Baylor women. I couldn’t believe how huge some of their players were. They are definitely at a different level than the rest of the country. Thank goodness we won’t face another team like them the rest of the year.

    388) But you might be able to get both. Winning and morality aren’t mutually exclusive. See Tony Dungy (not saying they can get him). I don’t care if they hire Petrino. I used to say no, but Joe B. gave him his blessing, so I’m okay with it. People are so tunnel-vision about getting Petrino, that they don’t want to acknowledge any negatives that come along with him. IMHO- It’s a tight rope that I think Barnhart and many boosters will not want to walk.

    392 – That might affect recruiting. If moms find out the coach doesn’t care enough about their sons to even know the kids’ names, then they are going to send their boys elsewhere.
