    Happy Birthday to 70th Bob Ross! RIP Bob Ross… This is just for fun, but what if Coach Strong left Louisville for Kentucky. That would be funny. Won’t ever happen.

    Is this a trick question? It’s past time really. The sad part is, most of the fans have a soft spot for Joker. If he’s not a Kentucky guy, he would have been gone a long time ago. Randy Sanders is worse. I wouldn’t hire Sanders to call plays for a grade school team.

    Everyone is calling for Joker to be fired. And I agree, but we will never have a winning football program, until the administration decides to make it a winning program. I`m 51 years old and I have seen several coaching changes and none have made a difference. The only one that did was Curci and we were placed on probation afterwards. Unless you call going 7 and 5 or 6 and 6 as a winning program and I do not.
    The coaching calls yesterday were horrible, the punt and 3rd and 26 and we run the draw, etc. I`m tired of the 3 to 5 yard play over and over again. But the call that sealed it for me was pulling Whitlow out and putting Towels in, after seeing that Whitlow was moving the team. That took all the rythum (spelling) away from Whitlow and that determines whether the quarterback will be successful or not.
    Do we need a coaching change?? Sure. Will it do us any good??? Probably not. Not until we put money into the program. Recruits do not want to set in lawn chairs to watch a movie screen when being recruited, when the schools we recruit against have a building specifically made for recruiting. They are building new stadiums or up grading the older ones.
    I love Wildcat football and I still watch them. I love these kids because they wanted to play here and will always support them. But, can our coaches recognize talent that we currently have??? Harmon looked good yesterday and he isnt even on the roster. Is he better than the guys who were in front of him?? It looked so yesterday.
    I hope we can turn this around, but can we?? Not with this administration. During the 60`s through the mid 80`s, this was a basketball state. Our high schools were turning out D1 talent every year and the older guys, in our adminstration remembers that. They are basketball people and always will be. Football will always prevail over football , with football never getting close and Barnhart has to keep them happy. Donor money is basketball driven.
    If we do not make a move, now, forget recruiting for this year. After the 09 and 2010 years, we cannot afford to lose recruiting this year.

    Hey Matt and Show Thread:

    I was discussing with a friend of mine comparisons for this years basketball team in regards to best case scenario and worst case. This is what we came up with:

    Ryan Harrow —
    Best Case: Brandon Jennings
    Worst Case: Cliff Hawkins
    Realistically — Cliff Hawkins-esque towards the beginning of the year but becomes Jennings-like in march.

    Archie Goodwin-
    Best Case: Tyreke Evans
    Worst Case: Wayne Ellington
    Realistically — Tyreke type offense with a defensive motor of MKG. This will be the guy taking the last shot.

    Alex Poythress-
    Best Case : Jamaal Mashburn (NBA Today- Carmelo Anthony)
    Worst Case: Terrance Jones (The IU version)
    Realistically: During the start of the season he will be like the IU Jones before buying into the “all out effort” idea of Cal but when all is said and done I see a lot of Carmelo in him if he can work on his shot a little. Will wind up being exactly like Mashburn his freshman year.

    Kyle Wiltjer —
    Best Case: Dirk Nowitski/ Detlef Schrempf
    Worst Case: A Plumlee that can shoot.
    Realistically : He will go as far as his defense allows him to.

    Willie Cauley Stein —
    Best Case —Lamarcus Aldridge like
    Worst Case — Perry Stevenson
    Realistically — This guy can be as good as he wants. Its scary how untapped he is and his potential.

    Nerlens Noel —
    Haven’t really seen enough for comparisons but as of right now I see a slightly more athletic Serge Ibaka. Defensive Beast but his offensive production depends on what is done by his teammates. Is not one to create his own shot.

    Julius Mays —
    Haven’t seen enough yet but kinda reminds me of a Jordan Crawford with a little more bulk to him.

    Barnhardt will not make a move until the year is over. Then it will take a few weeks to find a cheap coach, then recruiting will be over and we lose out, again. After the 2009 and 2010 recruiting, we cannot afford to lose this year. That would set us back another 3 to 4 years. Barnhardt does not understand this, NOR DOES HE CARE. ITS JUST FOOTBALL.
    I bet we end up keeping Joker. We need to let Joker go now, so we can name the new coach immediately after the Tennessee game and that staff can go out and start recruiting. But that will not happen, because Barnhardt, nor the adminstration cares, as long as the basketball boosters are happy.

    16 – I agree with Goodwin, Mays, Poythress and Wiltjer. I SEE A LOT OF Ibaka in Noel. Willie is a wildcard right now but for the most part i can see where you are coming from. I dont think Harrow will be anywhere near Jennings but I’d be happy as a lark if we got cliff hawkins type of play out of harrow.

    Unless the University and the State of Kentucky gets serious about pumping major funds into UK football, I don’t see a point to replacing CJP. With the upgrades being implemented around the SEC, I don’t understand why a top tier coach interested in winning championships and competing at an elite level would seriously entertain UK’s offer of employment because of the jeopardy that mediocrity will cause to his future employability.

    Am I advocating mediocrity or status quo? No. I’m suggesting that problem is much larger than CJP. With the additions of TA&M and Mizzou, and with the willingness of Vandy to invest dollars in its program the money problem for UK football will only be exacerbated.

    348- True. But, again, Dye carries serious weight at Barn. Bobby Lowder carries more and feels the same way toward BP.

    Again. WJOX radio from 10-2pm. You’ll learn more about southern football in those 4 hours than you have in an entire lifetime of UK football radio.

    Gluten is actually another term for the goal line on a football field. That is why UK has been avoiding it so much the past few years.

    353 Just being realistic man…averaging 4-6 wins a year at UK is not in his best interests…his best interests are to go somewhere where he has a realistic chance to contend and keep his name out there as a commodity

    369- He won at UL and at Ark. That’s a school in-state and another in-conference. Proven winner. You really believe he’d have a 6-win ceiling at UK? I mean, I don’t expect championships, but damn, man. Give the guy some credit based on REAL performance history.

    354 – Anyone who has followed SEC football has heard JOX. Bobby Lowder was the mastermind behind the failed Petrino deal, of course he doesn’t want him at Auburn. Do you remember when those guys tried to sneak their private jet into Jeffersonville, IN to meet Petrino. Petrino is ours for the taking.

    I used to work with a girl that got really sick and it took them awhile to figure out she was allergic to gluten. She lost a lot of weight, she was skin and bones. It affected her so much she went back to school and got a degree in diet and nutrition.

    381 I had to go back and read my post, because I couldnt believe I would say 6 win ceiling…which I didnt…I said 4-6 win average…Brooks won 7 once with the best team in modern UK history…Sure he may make a run at 8 wins once or twice if he stays 6-8 years, but if he goes to, say Tennessee, he has a shot to compete for SEC titles and keep his name out there…what he did at Louisville never would be possible if UL was in a good conference…as far as Arkansas, its a much better fball situation than UK, and even then he never actually accomplished anything as far as contending

    389 – What does Auburn saying they aren’t interested have to do with UK hiring him? How does it have any bearing on it? Their disinterest isn’t because of what happened at Arkansas. They aren’t hiring him because he turned them down after they tried to sneak into to Louisville. They won’t risk that embarrassement again.
