University of Kentucky Basketball, Football, and Recruiting news brought to you in the most ridiculous manner possible.

What A Difference A Year Makes

What price would you pay to win? That was the question I asked in 2012 as Kentucky struggled on the field and many fans began to clamor for UK to take a look at out of work Bobby Petrino. Is it worth it to sacrifice the spirit of amateurism and college athletics to adapt a win at all costs mentality? Last year UK had the chance to take that route and passed opting instead to make what looks like a solid hire in coach Stoops. This season the Cards did the opposite as they crawled back to their ex today for an interview and early reports indicate they may be about to hire Petrino once again. For Cardinals they will do anything possible to win at least that’s what hiring Petrino meant a year ago:

Eric Crawford:

Ah, yes. All he brings to the table. Petrino brings as much football coaching talent to the table as anyone hired this offseason. He also brings enough baggage to send you scrambling for a second table.

Stewart talked about wanting to make a hire that would move the program forward, that would take it places it has never been, that would put it on a national stage it has never known. He accomplished that Monday. Within two hours of Petrino’s press conference ending, WKU had been ripped by USA Today and Sports Illustrated online.

The litany of criticism is long.  It’s too soon. Does integrity stand for nothing? In college football, winning trumps everything else. And one final concern — it’s a big risk to take with your program.

[WKU writes itself into Petrino reality show]

Larry Vaught:

Will Kentucky make a move on Petrino? Probably not. I just don’t see Barnhart doing that.
Should Kentucky make a move on Petrino? Maybe. It depends on how much the UK administration wants to win more than anything else.

So what will happen? My guess is nothing with Petrino, as Barnhart looks for other coaches he thinks can win and have the “integrity” Barnhart values. But if the Kentucky administration doesn’t want to make a stronger overall commitment to football, will it really matter whether the coach is Petrino, a rising star like Sonny Dykes, a moderately successful coach like Duke’s David Cutcliffe or perhaps a rising college or NFL coordinator?

But remember, this is not a guaranteed home run for Kentucky. Money alone won’t buy a big-name coach who values winning unless other changes are made to the Kentucky football culture, and that could be more difficult to do than having UK even take a run at Petrino.

[Bobby Petrino: Good or Bad Hire for Kentucky?]

Mark Story:

In hiring Petrino, Western showed it is has embraced the same win-at-all costs mentality that, historically, has made UK one of the most penalized schools in NCAA history.

With Petrino, WKU joins Kentucky and Louisville in having as the most visible faces of their school nationally famous coaches known almost as much for the scandals of their past, either professional or personal, as their coaching excellence.

Welcome to the big time, WKU.

This is life with Bobby P.

[Petrino Can Make Life Tougher on Barnhart With Win In Debut]

 

Finally we have this gem from one of Louisville’s own. It will be interesting to see how his tune will change with a Petrino hire:

Bill Lamb and his point of view:

“Despite his undeniable success, Petrino’s annual mating dances with other college and pro teams were getting to be more than tiresome, creating an atmosphere of distrust and insecurity in the Cardinal football program. A school like Louisville deserves to have a man in charge with both eyes on the ultimate prize. Not just one, while the other is constantly wandering in search of a sweeter deal.”

Apparently, nothing much has changed with Petrino, considering his NFL fiasco and his recent shenanigans at the University of Arkansas. I have no sympathy for Arkansas since they knew what they were getting when they hired him. But now, the atmosphere of “distrust and insecurity” surrounding Petrino’s public life has invaded his personal life as well, and it’s hard to imagine anyone giving him another chance in either arena anytime soon.

What will you say if Petrino is named head coach of the Cards later this week?

    I’ll say the same thing everyone else is thinking, as long as he is winning games “we don’t care”! With that said, being a diehard UK fan, I hope if UofL hires him, he in turn screws their eyes out and leaves them hanging again!!!

      Only the irrational fans that would sell their soul for success wanted him. I never wanted that douche! Building program is what UK needs and wants. Stoops is a great hire, and he is bringing in AMAZING talent.

      With the money being poured into the program, Stoops is going to get UK going, while doing it the RIGHT way!

      Papa Brooks also beat Petrino when he was at Arkansas, with a lot less talent than what Stoops is bringin in. It may take a coue years but we will own Loserville no matter who they hire. And if it’s Petrino, they’ll win some games, but sooner or later they’ll get in trouble with academics or recruiting if they keep Clint Hurt on staff like all the fans are wanting. What a joke

    There is nothing in the world UL wouldn’t do to win, but a person has to ask why: Desperate people/universities have to do things to stay or in UL case appear to be relevant. UL admin has to constantly lie to their fans telling them how importantly they are to keep them & their money on the hook, they can’t tell them the truth. Relevant people/universities don’t have to fight for relevancy. UL & their entire fan base is constantly look at me look at me, show me respect, pay attention to me, love me. Why, because no one outside the city limits of Louisville especially nationally gives a damn about UL. UL has virtually no fan base outside Louisville, they defiantly have no BBN. UL is so relevant, UL is a coaching carousel (always has been always will be), no conference wanted them, and if Maryland hadn’t left the ACC, UL still wouldn’t have an invite. The second part of that, UL got picked last & was only invited to keep the ACC together not because the conference really wanted them. UL & especially their fans know their place & it absolutely kills them to always be Little Brother.

    Cry me a river KSR- I’m a UK fan and a season ticket holder. Where is this coming from? I don’t recall any NCAA violations? I recall reading Matt talking about how bad it would be to go after Calipari (and I admit being in that camp at that time). But unlike Matt, I’m not a hypocrite. The man had some failings in his personal life. But he has paid his dues. We should have hired him when they had the chance. Now, UL is probably going to pound us in the ground every year.

    No, he doesn’t recruit like Stoops- but no one coaches up lesser talent than Petrino. Nice job Barnhart, you missed on another one…

    • Do whut?
      10:43 pm January 7, 2014 Permalink

      What dues had he paid at the time of our hiring process? Being fired? That was mandatory under Arkansas policy. It hadn’t even been a full pregnancy (it’s a miracle there wasn’t one in this case) since his infractions. Paying dues does not mean being fired and immediately walking through the door of a comparable job. There was no time for the man to have shown any real remorse or regret or any evidence of a more humble, contrite individual. Second chances are a wonderful thing but not five minutes after the initial sin. The only lesson there would be do what you want when you want and you’ll be rewarded for it.

    If Louisville hires the formerly “fired” head coach of the Arkansas Razorbacks who won 3 games total in his entire career as the head coach of the Atlanta Falcons, I wish them well. I also question if integrity is dead at the University of Louisville. Coach Stoops will continue to recruit a top 10 recruiting class every year if his hard works continues to roll. UK football fans have nothing to worry about. They will do it with class and be a part of something the fans will be proud of…….

    As long as Stoops continues to get the “Jimmy’s & Joe’s”, UK will be allright. You need tallent to compete and win. Its not the x’s & o’s but more about the “Jimmy’s & Joe’s”. History shows UK
    can compete and win against Louisville when we have a stable full of talented players. Here’s hoping Stoops continues to bring in the 4 & 5 star athletes needed to compete in the SEC, if he does that
    then the games against Louisville will take care of themself regardless of who is coaching them.

    Florida State just won the NC with Stoops system and players on defense on display. Keep an eye on securing the 2014 recruiting class and duplicating that in 2015 and beyond.

    What got Jurich attention is Stoops arrival at UK and the excitement it has brought into the program.
    Three reasons had to convince Turtle to hire Petrino, 1. Losing Bridgewater, 2. Losing Strong, and 3. now in the ACC. Jurich has to know the programs in for a slip and he dosen’t like what has been going on up the road since Joker left.

    Having said all that, the knocks on ul’s lack of integrity are fitting and justified. The tipper should have been when they kept Pitino and Hurtt. Just when you think they cannot sink any lower they find a way to do it.

    I hope Stoops is able to succeed at a rapid pace. Phillips left the program in shambles and unfortunatley it will take atleast 3-4 years before Stoops gets everything in place. Winning six
    games this year would be a welcomed start and get into a bowl.

    “What will you say if Petrino is named head coach of the Cards later this week?”

    They deserve each other.

    Card Fan will get what he and all LOSERVILLE fans deserve. After Behanan has someone write his tell all book for him and Bobby P scums them up more than ever they will be an embrassment to the ACC.l

    Didn’t Jurich have some comments about the “state of the program” when Kragethorpe took over? I seem to recall some barbs being traded in the papers….

      We’re not shitting ourselves because we’re scared. We’re shitting ourselves because we are laughing so hard at your joke of a university. And we won’t be the only ones.

      Falling apart…lol….I’m a UK fan and you couldn’t be further from the truth….the UL program will sore and win the ACC and play for it all one day…Meanwhile we will be hoping for a Music City Bowl bid! Is that what you consider falling apart?

      the “sore” was a dead giveaway that you are a SOARing tard. and also the fact that you think UofL will ever sniff a national championship game.

      Tony, UL is not a nationally prominent program, and they will never compete for a national title in football. Just face reality.

    Bobby Petrino + Clint Hurtt = Stoops’s firing

    I give it two more bad seasons for Stoops and being crushed by Petrino and we will have another coaching search. HOPEFULLY, and I mean HOPEFULLY, Mitch Barnhart will be fired with him.

      So an adulterer + a cheater = Stoop’s firing. Hmmm…makes sense.

    “Building the program the right way” doesn’t mean a thing if the program doesn’t actually, you know, get built…

    It would be better for UK in the long run if Petrino succeeds at UL if it leads to Barnfart getting fired

    To all you computer geeks……..Please create a .gif using Petrino and Pitino faces on the guys from “The Night at the Roxbury”. I have no clue how that works, but that would be an all time great clip and more fitting. An added plus would be to have them bump dancing with a chick.

    I am one UK fan that didn’t want this scumbag no way no how. I think Coach Stoops will be a winner here and do it the right way. I’m also a UK fan that want’s LOSERVILLE to hire this piece of S#@T. With him, SLICK RICK, Uncle Tom, the football staff and the players on both the BB and FB team I say welcome to the ACC, UNC is working hard to match your image over the last few years. No more do we have to listen to how clean and upstanding the ACC is with what’s going on at UNC and with this ghetto rat infested program joining them next year that’s all gone.

    All these cards fans ranting about how Petrino beat UK even at WKU should have their brain checked. Petrino beat Stoops’ team this year with Joker’s players. Once Stoops Troops arrive it won’t even be a contest. Also, get ready to get your a$$es handed to you by Florida St, Clemson, Georgia Tech, and Va Tech the next couple years because you know…they’re actual football schools
