On BCG cancelling B-W scrimmage...

I am not surprised at the reaction of some fans that want to whine about the cancellation. However, IMHO, BCG is doing exactly what he should be doing. He is trying to WIN GAMES. Isn't that what the BBN was screaming for at the end of last season?

Also, I'm glad to see that BCG isn't scared to upset the fan base. He is sticking to his guns and that is exactly what he needs to do in this situation. He didn't feel the need to over explain, or even really explain at all. He is the coach and those are the decisions that he is getting paid millions of dollars to make.

Honestly fans, would you rather see a B-W scrimmage game and finish the season with a 23-8 record or skip the scrimmage and have a 25-6 record? I'm sure you could argue that it won't make that much of a difference, and you are probably right.

The point is that this a college basketball team, they have absolutely no responsibility to the fan base. In all actuality, the University of Kentucky has spoiled it's fan base by bending to their demands way too often. The only time that the University owes the fans anything is when the fans pay for a game and the game doesn't take place.

This isn't professional sports or a theater. It's a bunch of kids playing for a college with a fan base that is spoiled by a rich tradition of winnning; a tradition which Coach Gillespie is attempting to maintain/rebuild by spending more time teaching instead of entertaining. Let's show him some respect, please.
