Talking football with Mitch Barnhart (Tuesday Show Thread)

There’s a new buzz around the UK football program, unlike anything we’ve seen from the gridiron in years past.  Here we are, in the middle of December, looking forward to the first kickoff next year, when basketball should be the only sport on our minds.  It’s not something the Big Blue Nation is used to.  So, in order to make sense of all this, KSR will welcome Mitch Barnhart on to the show this morning to discuss all things football.  The UK athletic director will explain how and why he hired Mark Stoops, plus plans for the future of football funding.  It should be a very good show.

Join in on the fun by calling (502) 571-1080.

    So awesome to hear Coach Cal and the players are in my hometown of Campton & Wolfe County today handing out shoes for the kids down there. Some of those kids, that will be all they will get for Christmas. Those kids need it. Awesome!

    Thank Mitch for getting Mark Stoops! I’ll be glad to hear what he says. Also ask him, why does he wear pants that don’t fit right.

    Matt & Drew – IMO, the most economic way for Drew’s first ever passport: just stop by any post office in Lexington to pick up the form first, read through and check out the official website for the documents required. Take your own photos (try different distances for the acceptable size) or spend $10 for a quick snap at Walgreen (not worth it quality wise) and just bring everything and apply from the local post office. No need to drive to Detroit since it takes less than 6 weeks to receive it by mail. 🙂

    You know, you would think Mitch would be self-aware enough to not play right into fan’s negative image of him by essentially saying “we knew things got bad when fans stopped showing up since we use football money to fund everything else!” Eh he probably doesn’t care at this point. Congrats on the hire Mitch… lighten up on us fans sometime, and we might lighten up on you buddy.

    I’m with you, 60. He’s coming off as saying, the fans bailed, we were losing money, and that can’t happen. Should stick to we just needed a different direction for football. He needs to leave his negative opinion of the fanbase out of this conversation.

    60/63- You’d rather him sugar coat it and not tell the truth? If he came on and said it wasn’t about the revenue that funds other sports we’d call him a liar. What do you want from the guy? You can’t take the position that the best thing to do to force change is stop going to games and spending money, and then not like it when he points to that as a reason he needed to make a change.

    “Delk for 3” – Mitch Barnhart just described his plan to hire a new football coach on the radio. So those who say “he had no plan” were wrong.

    Now we’ll see if the plan ends up being terrible.

I age 3 years by listening to them. I tried listening to Larry Glover again because I was so hyped after the coaching hires and he was so negative, not really wanting to give credit to anyone. I will never listen to his show again since.

    I love listening to Larry Glover’s show after the games. You get unfiltered fan reaction and a good discussion of the game and what happened. Kenny “Sky” Walker knows his hoops. Also, the calls from “Chris from Richmond” are often legendary.

    67 – never said he needed to sugar coat anything. just saying he has a poor perception of the fans and vice versa. being on this show is a good way to “make nice” with the fans. he’s not exactly doing that. i’m not questioning his ability to hire, his ability to run an athletic dept, nor do anything else associated with his job except be a whole lot less prickly when it comes to public things.

    People get blame Mitch for everything because he never shows emotion. Then he shows emotion and says the truth and people get angry and want to use that to fire him. Look, people last December started the campaign asking other fans not purchase send tickets to send a message…That is an agenda….and Mitch called you out on it. You had an agenda. And I’ll get crushed, but true fans don’t just not go to games. It was cold, the team was bad, enthusiasm was low, so yeah, the true fans were the only ones who went to the game. You get called out and you whine about it. Sometimes the negativity by everyone that is obviously doing brain surgery because we all sit here everyday writing in the comments section of a blog. Based on our behavior and financial support, we’re lucky we can field the teams we do next year. It cost every student athlete assets and potential. Mitch does the work….we just watch the work. I think we should drink a hot cup of shut the hell up.

    Sure they do! Do you keep going to a restaurant that serves mediocre food, at room temperature, even though you really LIKE the wait staff? NO! You stop going, and revenue falls and management changes. If you keep going to the restaurant, why would they change?

    Ditto UK Football….18,000 people show up to watch an abysmal game…Next day Joker is gone. Football loses $5 Million over the previous year, because fans aren’t showing up…do you think the facts are connected? I do.

    Bottom-Line: you be a “good fan” (sap) and keep supporting bad football, you’ll keep getting bad football.

    67)- Late to the party but: I don’t want Mitch to sugarcoat the truth, he can get out there and say “I threw darts at a board to pick the coach” if that is the truth. It just bums me out for my AD to come out and say “We fired our coach because fans stopped showing up and we need that money” instead of “We clearly were not competitive, needed a new direction, blah blah blah” because that sentiment implies that Mitch is completely fine going nigh-winless as long as that money for other sports keeps flowing. I understand that is how Mitch sees things, even going so far as to mention our success in secondary sports in Joker’s termination letter, but as a fan, that just isn’t what you want to hear.

    I don’t see why he should get a lot of credit at this point in the game. If Stoops succeeds, then Barnhart can walk around with his head held high. Until then, he has nothing to brag about. There is no guarantee Stoops will be good.

    I don’t see why he should get a lot of credit at this point in the game. If Stoops succeeds, then Barnhart can walk around with his head held high. Until then, he has nothing to brag about. There is no guarantee Stoops will be good.

    That’s true, but so what? The same could have been said of Spurrier at So. Carolina, or Muschamp at Florida…..Sure the proof is in the tasting, but I’d say a degree of happiness, optimism, and enthusiasism are warranted, wouldn’t you?

    Or are you just going to keep moving the goal posts? “OK, he won more games than Joker, but what about…”, “OK, he had a winning season, but what about…” “OK, he went to a bowl game, but what about…” “OK, we’re competitive in the SEC East but what about….”

    I think it fair to ask you, what YOU would consider a Stoops successful career?

    We do not need another reality show (Cuffing Cats) based on our team.

    Watch out for the coed meat hooks.

    If they use Cobb 20 times a game, he won’t last….he’ll get hurt…which is why they use him how they do now.

    Cobb is being used exactly how he should at GB. Hope they make a deep run in playoffs and look for Cobb to break a specials team TD soon. Go CATS!

    WHY THE HELL is everyone acting like the world is caving in on the basketball team.

    YES MJ, the football news would have trumped even last years team. THIS IS HUGE NEWS….but the difference is, last year we’d be talking about how we’re in a great spot for 2 sports rather than Football is up, and basketball is down. Basketball will be perfectly fine!!!

    110 — I consider Stoops a success if he can get our program to the level Brooks got us to. I would think getting us to having a winning record every year (after a couple years), being a bowl team, and a team that is very tough team to beat for anyone.

    119 — He’s not a tailback so he won’t get 20 touches a game, but they use Cobb as much as any receiver in the league.
