    Happy Happy Birthday! Coach, you have brought me more fun and memories as a UK fan than I can ever remember…including being present to witness winning the 2012 championship…and giving me all KINDS of NBA players to root for when my last favorite one, Kobe, is retiring. You are a great guy and great to meet in person. I dunno what the future holds, but I hope you are our coach for a long, long time. You represent us so well and make me truly PROUD TO BE A WILDCAT!

    Happy birthday, Coach. Same as my mom’s. She was a proud Kentuckian who would have been 99 today.

    Should have included Megan’s response to Erin. It was funny.

    Does Cal get brownies, too?

    I wish you a great birthday! Certainly proud of you for what you have done for players, your coaches and fans. You have been a perfect fit for the program. But, even more than your basketball accomplishments I am so proud how you have taken young men and molded them into special people after they leave UK. How you manage your time so you can give to others is something that comes from the heart.
