Over-analyzing the Gillispie situation: What’s in a pronoun?

Finally!  We have hard evidence resolving the Billy Gillispie situation!

That’s right, folks, the mystery has finally been solved. Everyone had their sources or just knew that you had to be wrong even though they had no proof, but it turns out that it was right there in front of our nose the whole time.  Billy Gillispie is leaving and he doesn’t even care to hide it anymore.  In fact, it’s pretty terrible that a slick detective such as yourself didn’t see it coming from a mile away.  Take a look at this quote from yesterday’s press conference:

“I think it will really pay dividends. I think next year’s team, I think it’s unlimited what they can win. I think it’s really, really helped these guys.”

Did you catch it? C’mon, Watson it’s right there in front of you. He said “they” when talking about next year’s team. Obviously that means the Gillispie train has left the station and he no longer thinks of himself as a part of the Kentucky program. Sure, this line was preceded with a “we” comment in regards to the UK squad, but any good gumshoe lives by chronology and Gillispie said “they” last.

So, there you have it. You can tell the Heavy Hitter and Brandon Stockton and all of the other “reliable sources of the message board” that they can pack up their magnifying glass and their finger-printing powder and head home. The truth to the Gillispie saga has finally been solved. Clyde’s pronoun slip-up shows us that he’s hiding a secret….and he would have gotten away with it if it weren’t for those meddling beat writers.
