    Re: Billy Gillispie fired at Kentucky

    Billy Gillispie is out as coach of Kentucky, and the school has called a 4:30 p.m. news conference to announce the change, the Wildcats have told ESPN.com.

    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.

    Every time they say "we will review his status after the season," mark that one down as a firing.


    Since we are an elite team now, let's go get that One Cyclone Moment.
    Make this one for the ages!

    THey have the worst fan base ever. It's not even close. Billi is a heck of a coach. He is going to fall right into someones lap. Probably Missouri after Mike Anderson Leaves for Alabama.

    No one wants it because if you're not in the Final 4 every other year, you're canned. Unrealistic fanbase is more like it.

    But even if you are fired in two years, as he is now, you still are going to make as much money as you would anyplace else for multiple years. I think his buyout alone is worth 6 mil.
