Just a little gem of an ad from the second best quarterback in the NFL…Enjoy!!!

Come on home to the bluegrass, Billy D…..come on up to a BASKETBALL school instead of that FOOTBALL school…..all us KY fans are just waitin’ for ya!!!

Here’s hoping Billy Donovan doesn’t read this opinion

If Billy doesn’t take the job, I’m keeping my fingers crossed that Rick Pitino is top of mind for Mitch Barnhart.

My beloved Wildcats are now leaderless.

I don’t feel like this is a bad thing. The last few seasons have been torturous for UK fans and have gotten progressively worse – and Tubby hasn’t seemed that into it anymore. Time has come for the change.

Of course, now the big question is “who will we get?” I’m keeping my fingers crossed for a couple of those big names mentioned in this article…of course, with some of them (Donovan, Calipari) there will be no news until after March Madness is over. Pins and needles time for UK fans.

 This also very likely means that Randolph Morris will make himself available for the NBA draft, since his commitment to stay with UK through his senior year (after his first toe-in-the-NBA-water debacle) was more to Tubby Smith than to UK.

Woo-hoo! The big bad BlueDevils have bowed out early.

You know, my loathing and contempt for Duke might not be so bad were it not for CBS Sports’ (and various other sports media) inability to QUIT showing the 1992 Duke win over my Wildcats.

In Rupp Arena yesterday, during the afternoon session, in a region that doesn’t even include Duke, the guys running the big screen felt the need to highlight Christian Laettner YET AGAIN – twice. IN FREAKING RUPP ARENA! THAT was basketball HERESY!

For several reasons, they all need to STOP running that damn clip:
A. It was 15 bloody years ago. What have they done lately?
B. Is Christian Laettner the only star player they ever had?
C. It was NOT EVEN a final!! It was only a regional.
D. Laettner should not even have still been in the game at that point. He should have been ejected for the blatant foul in the previous play. Dirty player.

Really, there’s not a better thriller clip in NCAA tournament reels in 15 years of play? Really?

Well, there IS one now…thank you, Virginia Commonwealth! You are my new other favorite team! Well done.

I don’t care about all the reasons why everyone hates Duke, I just hate Duke and yes, I do rejoice in them being just another team in the big show.

To quote that sage Nelson – “ha-HAH!”

Aside: My reasons for hating Duke are twofold – Christian Laettner’s shamelessly unsportsmanlike (and unpunished) conduct prior to their championship win in ’92 and Billy Packer’s shameless support (reference the video in this blog) despite the fact he’s a national announcer on a major network, who should be unbiased. I loathe Billy Packer and can’t wait for the day he retires.

I swear, it doesn’t matter who it is, the Super Bowl Halftime Shows are always lame. Endless and lame. I can’t believe I’m saying this, but they’d do better by running more commercials. The people in the stands at the Super Bowl are all going to concessions and the bathroom anyway. The people … wait, Prince is actually covering a Foo Fighters song…this may be the most schizophrenic half-time show yet – yes, even more than the year that Britney Spears and NSYNC teamed up with Aerosmith for one serious suck-fest. …Anyway, the people at home are all in the bathroom or the kitchen. Why do they bother? The acoustics are ALWAYS bad… I mean, Prince is normally pretty good live (yes, I’ve seen him live), but damn…it’s like they’re always trying too hard.
