BTI’s Rants and Ramblings: The Mitch Barnhart Report Card

barnhart

After the announcement of Mitch Barnhart winning Athletic Director of the year, it seems an appropriate time to release this year’s Mitch Barnhart Report Card.  Every year, I update this list with the major sports at UK and how UK did before Barnhart took over as AD and how they have done since.  When this sports season is completed in a few weeks, it will have been 13 complete athletic years for Barnhart.  Below you will see the 13 years prior to Barnhart (if possible) and the 13 years since Barnhart.  I think you will find the results quite interesting.

    I understand why people give him hell about the Billy G hiring… However, this is solid evidence that he has really stepped our athletics department up as a whole… Hard to argue with the numbers. Really hoping that the football team can get to 6-6 this year or better. That would really be a solid indicator (for me anyway) that all of our “major” programs are really heading in the right direction.

      a lot of people give him crap about the joker hire… but in all defense, joker looked like a good candidate before it happened.

      he does have to get credit for stoops and cal as well as the other sports… overall, he has done an amazing job.
