    Gillispie out at Kentucky?

    Speculation Begins About Billy Gillispie's Future at Kentucky

    Doug Gottlieb was also talking about this on his show today.

    If true...It couldn't have happened to a better guy.

    He did absolutely nothing with the best scorer in the country, Jodie Meeks. Doesn't surprise me one bit if this is true. He really underachieved in his 2 years.

    Go Creighton! Kentucky plays at Creighton tonight at 6 on ESPN in the NIT.

    Re: Gillispie out at Kentucky?

    I have a friend that goes to Kentucky and he said a ton of people down there have a strong dislike for him and want him out ASAP. After their home loss to Georgia (i think) he said he thought there was going to be a riot in the parking lot because the fans were so mad.

    I'm so glad to have the fans that we do. We're passionate about the team, but not to the level where riots would ensue in the ISC parking lots. Although, it being the middle of winter after most of the home games may help. More incentive to just warm up the car rather than starting fights.

    Even with the $6 million buyout, a basketball program like that will have no problem finding the boosters to flip the bill.

    Re: Gillispie out at Kentucky?

    I can only imagine he's already been told he's out. You simply cannot underachieve that much at Kentucky and hope to have a future there. They certainly had more talent on that team than they played against and repeatedly lost to.

    Not to mention, he doesn't have a "Kentucky" caliber recruiting class for next year and would be lucky to make the NIT if anybody leaves.


    A program isn't built on one player and it doesn't succeed because of one player, thus a program won't fail if it doesn't get that one player.

    Sometimes it is the people who no one imagines anything of who do the things that no one can imagine.

    Surely he knew he was gone as soon as they found out they wouldn't be in the tourney.

    No way is he gone.....yet. Now if he doesn't win the NIT, then consider him toast.

    Re: Gillispie out at Kentucky?

    This story is EPIC FAIL for everyone involved:

    1. Kentucky firing Tubby Smith - EPIC FAIL


    2. Gillespie leaving an aTm team he was turning into a national power - EPIC FAIL


    3. Kentucky fans for being such royal ******-bags - EPIC FAIL

    Not to mention half of our crowd watches the last 10 minutes from the concourse so they can get out before everyone else. That really cuts down on the parking lot crowds afterwards.

    Now I kind of wish Wesley had gone to Kentucky, he'd really be regretting his decision now! Not that I'm bitter or anything.

    I guess Tubby has received numerous emails from Kentucky fans apologizing for how he was treated at UK.
