Am I the only one who notices the incredible amount of animosity for UK online?
Is there something about the UK program that we should have accepted mediocrity and not hired Coach Calipari? Now that NCAA scutiny is on Duke, will they see the same level of vitriol that UK has seen on the internet?
Is there a component of "The New Racism", where people of Southern or Appalachian heritage can be the butts of ehtnic and demographic slurs now that all other groups are off-limit? Almost all of the discussions on Blogs and message boards about UK usually devolve to that point, where when there are no facts to dispute, only vicious name-calling seems to be the answer.
Coach Calipari has already been convicted of NCAA violations here, if you believe the message boards at ESPN ncaa basketball. My solution is to take the high road, and only respond with stats and facts. However, all this brings to mind, is there something about UK, where we should have accepted mediocrity where other programs should not have?
