Gillispie considering Arizona job?... i.e. another log on the fire.

Seriously. Has anyone heard this yet?  This was not through the rumor mill of blogs, but on the radio in NKY by people who get paid to talk about sports.  While we are at it, a writer at the Courier-Journal said that Patterson and Meeks are definitely coming back.  It's all from an "inside" source.  He also said that there will be mass defections and several getting the boot after this year.  I don't know about you all, but I am tired of the BS.  I will not believe anything anyone says anymore until I hear it from the horse's mouth.  I honestly feel horrible for this team.  Have they underachieved, absolutely... and they know that better than anyone.   We, the fans, are not making this any easier on them at all.  All of a sudden, we are better coaches than an SEC co-coach of the  year.  We understand the team chemistry better than someone who spends pracitcally every waking hour with them.  We are qualified to write and spew nasty sentences in the direction of the people we alledgedly love.  Do we love the players, or do we love the uniform? I would think the rational answer would be both, but by hearing and reading what some say about players on this team... we might as well be talking about Gladiators in a Roman arena... thumbs up or thumbs down.  I will say this, and I say this as a graduate of the University of Kentucky, if we (the fans) run Gillispie out of Lexington after this year, I will have a hard time putting on anything that resembles Kentucky blue.  It is absolutely, positively embarrassing to hear the calls we all hear on the radio and to read the posts we have all read on the internet.  What is your affiliation with the University?  What is your qualification that makes you an expert in basketball?  Speak up.  If you have the guts to say it, qualify yourself (I'm Bob and I coach High School Basketball, etc).   Court cases require expert witnesses and this should be no different.  It's time for some accountability.  Tell us why we should listen to you.  I mean no disrespect to those who run this blog as it is obvious that more than a fair amount of your time is spent researching UK basketball.  I also mean no disrespect to those who post here, unless, well, you are feeling a touch guilty, and then and only then, maybe.
