ESPN All Access-Kentucky might have debuted last night to much fanfare, but this isn’t the first time camera crews have been allowed to follow the basketball team. I present to you on this Thursday afternoon a couple of segments of the All Access series that follows the 2009 Cats under coach Billy Gillispie that aired during episodes of College Gameday that same season. They aren’t exactly easy to watch, the Cats lose to both South Carolina in one segment and Georgia in the other, but it’s definitely interesting to see the mood around the program when Gillispie was at the helm compared to what it is now under Calipari. You also get some classic Billy Clyde running a pregame walkthrough in a hotel ballroom.
