    I think we have a winner! Not only did we steal something else from louisville but he knows his UK sports. Well spoken and seem like he has been there before, well played sir!

    Yes we can have a legit championship program at UK in football, MATT. You’re reasoning that Kentucky only produces 5 D-1 football ahtletes a year compared to Florida’s 100 doesn’t hold water. It’s the same in high school basketball in the state of Kentucky, yet they went out and hired a big name basketball coach and turned the program back around. Then, he goes out to every other state and gets the big time players (even in Florida). Location is no longer a factor for most players. They want to play for the big names and get to the league (where they will travel their entire career). Piercy is right. The key to turning this football program around is hiring a big time coach. BTW- geat job Piercy. You have my vote.

    Piercy is by far the best candidate I have seen so far. BTW, how many D-1 players per year does the state of Nebraska produce?

    Best so far. Kills the other competition thus far!

    He’s pretty knowledgeable, which is refreshing. He could use some more work strengthening up his arguments, though.

    But yeah, Matt is being pretty narrow-minded in his arguments. Like 3 said, Kentucky doesn’t produce that many great basketball players either (at least not since the 70s). You have to get a coach who can somehow manage to get some of the bigger names from other states. How do you think teams like Wisconsin and Nebraska compete in football? They recruit out-of-state. The main problem is getting a coach (or coaching staff) who can do that.

    The football program will never be on the level of the basketball program, but that doesn’t mean it can’t be competitive from year-to-year. It’s not going to be easy, but it’s possible.

    good up untill the football coach question. He never said bring in a big name coach, Kyle just said a younger coach. But Joker is only 48 that is still young in the coaching world. Plus what big name coach would be willing to come to Kentucky. none. Joker is the best option, right now.

    he moves his hands too much (nerves maybe), but he is very articulate and has good grammar!
    he’s nice looking like Matt and dresses like a thoroughbred!

    Piercy is by far the best except for his comment about Joker Phillips – He was not able to convince his argument –

    13. agree. He didnt do a good job explaining his argument, but besides that he did great.

    Dick Stalker says it’s not Piercy’s job shine when compared to a bunch of short bussers.

    “They can’t”, why wouldn’t you say they wont(pay)? That sounds a little like Cowheard, I guess its a little bit of a mix to create controversy … but sometimes its a dumb ass full on themselves.

    By the way I drink milk and bourbon … cars still have crank shafts, fly wheels and tires since you said you don’t know much about that….

    Matt Jones stop talking and waving your arms around so much! Keep them down to your side. You’re like Ricky Bobby in his first interview.

    But keep up the good work, you represent UK well.
