Ok Kentucky Fans...Time to Dream A Little......

Hello I was telling our benefactor Mr. Gorham this morning...I had this great idea for a blog I was going to do today...I was going to wrap up this past season and look towards next year.

Now this whole John Calipari to Kentucky train seems to pick up momentum with each passing second. One site says it will be a 6 year deal worth 40 million dollars, another says 4.5 million over six years with incentives up to 6 million per.

With that comes the news three or… Continue

Tri State Sports Media Service Inc.

Better get it right this time Mitch, you only get one mulligan with Big Blue Nation.

You say you know Kentucky and you understand how important basketball is to the Commonwealth and you understand what the fanbase wants in it's coach.

Sorry Mitch, I respectfully and humbly disagree.

Unless your one of us you… Continue

UK Football Notebook: Wildcats Post Gains in Speed, Strength

From UK Athletics

LEXINGTON, Ky. – Legendary Arkansas Coach Frank Broyles once said, “Luck follows

speed.” If that’s so, the Kentucky football team might be in for more “luck” in

the 2009 season.

Results from the team’s winter strength and conditioning program have been

tabulated by Marc Hill, UK Director of Strength and Conditioning. The numbers

show significant improvement in overall team speed and quickness, along with

some gains in… Continue

From UK Athletics

LEXINGTON, Ky. – The 2009 University of Kentucky football schedule has been completed as the Wildcats will take on Miami University on Sept. 5 in Cincinnati’s Paul Brown Stadium.

The game will be a unique season opener, as the teams will play at a neutral site, the home of the National Football League’s Cincinnati Bengals. The game will be convenient for the fan base of both teams, as Paul Brown Stadium is 82 miles from the UK campus and just 39… Continue

Thumbs Up/Thumbs Down-UK vs. Notre Dame NIT Quarterfinals

Old habits came back to haunt Kentucky as Notre Dame held off a late rally by the Cats to win 77-67. Jodie Meeks scored 21 points for Kentucky, but Luke Harangody put in 30 for the Irish.

Thumbs Up

Patrick Patterson's Offense- The gameplan for the Cats was obvious early on. They wanted to pound the ball down low to Patterson and let him go to work on Luke Harangody. That worked well for most of the game as Patterson scored 18 points on 6-12 shooting.… Continue

Billy Gillispie Should Be the Coach at the University of Kentucky next season------

Hello here is my deal...if you want Billy G gone...then I would skip to the comments section where you can call me an idiot or whatever you want...

Look I realize the last two years haven't been that good...but let's face it...Billy Gillispie didn't walk into the 1996 Kentucky Basketball team when he took the job here.

If your teams are supposed to be built around your Senior class...well this one goes down as probably the worst in UK history. Jared Carter,… Continue

Thumbs Up/Thumbs Down-UK vs. Creighton NIT Second Round

Patrick Patterson sat out most of the first half and Jodie Meeks struggled to put points on the board, but Kentucky rallied to beat Creighton 65-63 when Meeks converted a three-point play with 10.6 seconds left.

Thumbs Up

Jodie Meeks- This was not a typical game for the best scorer in the SEC. He was covered all night, and didn't get very many open looks. Whether or not very many plays were actually run specifically for Meeks can be debated, but that's… Continue
