Patrick Patterson joins Kentucky Wildcats

We lost Jai, but did we really need another guard? What we needed was a big man. Someone to fill the shoes that Randolph Morris left in locker room. It seems that we are now a top 25 recruiting class and must give all the credit to Billy Clyde himself. The decision was probably made on location more than anything, but we are the most storied program in history.

The wrong Billy (Gillispie) comes to Lexington.

ESPN's story here.
UK Athletics bio
This is no April Fool's. While many will say this is the wrong Billy, I am perfectly ok with this decision. Billy Gillispie will be announced as the new men's basketball coach for the University of Kentucky at 12:45 P.M. today, April 6.

He turned around a struggling Texas A&M program in two years.
Previosly 7-21, he took them to a 70-26 record over the past three seasons and a Sweet 16 birth in this years tourney. With our facilities and national prominence, he will obtain great recruits. He already has a head start after beating Louisville in Rupp earlier this year.
Congratulations Billy, I am looking forward to it.

Cannonball the movie

We are all Kentucky proud right? If you are from Kentucky, you take pride when something big happens here. Many films were shot in KY, including: Elizabethtown, Dreamer, and Seabiscuit. One you may not know of, Cannonball, was filmed here in Danville, KY. While it is still in post-production, it should be along soon.

Check out the trailer here: Cannonball the Movie trailer
Trailer on Youtube

It is a very unique sasquatch film. If you love sasquatch and Kentucky, this is a winner (just like Tony).

Billy Donovan next coach at Kentucky?

As reported on LEX 18 on Monday March 16 during the 11pm news, Billy Donovan has been offered the head coaching job at Kentucky. The alleged 7 year deal is worth $3.5 million a year with a bonus of another $3.5 million if he stays the entire 7. Their source,, is a pay site and I couldn't confirm it. The anchor Justin White said that UK is poised to announce Billy Donovan as the next men's basketball coach directly after the last game Florida plays in the tournament. I will post a link as soon as it is on LEX 18's website.

1:18 P.M. 3.27.07 Update: LEX 18 backs out of their statement and says it is only a rumor.
