    Anybody know for sure if Kidd-Gilchrist is going to be too young to meet the NBA requirements to enter the draft, thus forcing him to return to school next year?????

    To anyone who is an ESPN insider. Jay Bilas in his blog wrote a article about Calipari. Here is a section worth noting in it. “Calipari didn’t make these NBA or NCAA rules, but he is living by them. The NBA draft eligibility standards are not his doing, yet he has found a way to recruit elite talent. He did not formulate the NCAA’s academic progress rate, yet his program has a better graduation rate than Wisconsin and a higher APR than both Wisconsin and Florida, among others.”

    The thing that could potentially kill Petrino is the fact she was hired by him, basically reports to him and he lied to his boss.

    Rick only used UofL employees to cover up what he did. Pitino used a paid UofL employee to bring her in to discuss a payoff and to take her to have an abortion.

    How the hell did Petrino think he could just ride around town with a hot blonde on the back of his Harley without anyone else noticing that wasn’t his wife???? He’s either a complete idiot or has to have one of those little side cars attached to the Harley to carry his huge balls.

    If Bobby Petrino gets canned at Arkansas, maybe U of L will hire him back. After all cheating on your wife is apparently a career enhancing move at U of L.

    Sean…there is a different #8 shirt made my Nike w/o the asterisk. Blue and white checkerboard #8 w/ NCAA National Champs KY Basketball underneath and a big blue Wildcat mascot behind the #8. On the back it features the state of KY with the blue and white checkboard and the individual years the Cats have won the title. Unfortunately, it’s only a Hibbett’s exclusive tee, but one of the better designs I have seen this week.

  62. Transy Clay

    #55, the asterisk refers to the back of the shirt where it says, “Eight Time NCAA National Champions”, however I agree with the design as well, makes us look like team Barry Bonds.
