Billy G OUT at Kentucky

119 posts in this topic

ESPN confirms that Billy G has been fired from UK. Hopefully this will set the program back even further!!

I wonder if there is any truth to the rumor that Billy Donovan will be their new guy.

Not if you hire Eddie Munster. Pearl is 7-1 against him...including the national championship years.

Early names that have been mentioned on the radio (that I have heard) are Jay Wright and Travis Ford.

I don't know who would want to take a job with expectations like those at Kensucky. I know he isn't that charismatic with the boosters, or whatever, but this guy should have been given longer than two season. What about those 13 year olds that he's already gotten to commit??

A lot of behind the scenes stuff that wasn't made public. Bob Knight type behavior. Players were threatening to transfer left and right. One mother said her son, one of our best players, would not return if Gillispie returned.

He could get away with that at Texas A&M. Not at Kentucky. He was our Matt Doherty. By the way, UNC won a title two years after canning Doherty.

If it's Donovan, I'm okay with that. See, we'd have to play him twice a year anyway, so it doesn't matter where he is. Plus, it might be harder for Florida to find as good of a coach as it would be for Kentucky. Does that make sense? It does in my head.

Billy G is not my coach. He's just a girl, claims that I am the one. But the kid is not my son.

Billy Donovan cometh

He'd be a good one, if he doesn't get buyers remorse again...
