    There’s a moment that I haven’t heard anyone talk about from the ESPN All-Access that everyone should check out. It happens in the background when Calipari is yelling at Harrow about where he is on the floor. You see Goodwin catch a pass going towards the basket and going right at Cauley-Stein or Noel (can’t remember). Goodwin gets up literally to the point where his eyes are at rim level. It is an amazing play, even though he didn’t finish. Check it out!

    I’m with you Matt, I think Charlie stays one more year because of the team he has coming back. Make one more deep run to show that it wasn’t just a flash in the pan, then he can basically get any job he wants. Every year teams underachieve, he’ll be fine. But IMO, if he wants to get back in the SEC, this year might be his best chance. Definitely a catch 22.

    There is no reason he could not challenge his opponent to a debate for Fayette County Judge Executive. He would be afraid to debate Ryan. He could win, get a check and still hold down two jobs besides County Judge Exectutive.

    You can’t promote him on KSR, Election Finance Laws would require any ads to be counted as in-kind donations to his campaign, which are limited. You may be able to pull it off as an independent expenditure under a citizen-united angle but Ryan can’t be involved in the planning.

    212 — if the ex-NFLer succeeds, it’s because he surrounds himself with quality assistants, particularly those who played the game and who are interested in a future coaching career. if he leaves for greener pastures (i.e. money, prestige, ego), we have capable assistants who can hit the ground running. Take a page from Cal: recruit kids who want to play on Sundays.
