Coach Billy Gillispie on his call-in show tonight when asked about the turnover problem with this year's Wildcats. Very interesting. I guess we'll just have to wait and see, most likely next year.

Think Rupp didn't ruffle the media. One of my favorite stories Billy Reed tells about him is coming up to ask for an interview outside his office, and hearing the secretary go in and tell Rupp that Billy Reed wanted to talk to him, and Rupp saying: "What does that little turd want now?"

"I think it's all about mind-set -- I think you're still in Christmas mode sometimes," Gillispie said at a news conference yesterday. "I haven't seen a team come back as focused and as intense and seem very determined and hungry like they did yesterday."

Cats are all intense and purposeful | courier-journal | The Courier-Journal I love to see this. I love it when a team is practicing so well that the coach feels that he can compliment them instead of calling them out all the time, like another coach I know who traded in his gorgeous blue sweats for an ugly shade of red.

"When he does the little things right, like going to class and showing up to practice on time, then Coach Gillispie will have him out there,"

There's a certain shock value in the University of Kentucky men's basketball team starting a season 0-2. It brings out a nation of roundball rubberneckers. It's a one-car accident with a telephone pole -- but the car is a Bentley. Everybody's going to slow down and look.

Bad start may not mean UK is a bad team | courier-journal | The Courier-Journal Great opening for Crawford's article. Just great -- I'm jealous. The rest of the article is so-so, but the opening ... memorable.

The comment I’ve been hearing since Friday is that Tubby Smith would not have lost that game. To me, the feeling is that while Gillispie is a better recruiter, hungrier, more aggressive, Smith is the better bench coach. That could change down the line. But I can’t argue with that one, either.

" Bad weekend for Billy G. and Richie B. John Clay’s Sidelines At this precise moment, I have to say the evidence supports this perception. Let's hope it changes.

3. Kentucky The Cats won't lose to Gardner-Webb again this year, but they're likely still a year or two away from being able to challenge the Gators and Vols. Joe Crawford and Ramel Bradley are gone, so Kentucky will have to rely on Patrick Patterson quite a bit. That's not a bad situation to be in, because Patterson will likely be the best big fella in the conference. However, he won't be enough to get the Cats past the first or second round of the NCAA tourney.

Gamecock Man's Hoops SEC East Power Rankings - Garnet And Black Attack With due respect to my august colleague, I am afraid that based on what I have seen, he is very much mistaken. UK has plenty this year to challenge both teams. Plenty.

I will say this after watching both teams practice: UK at a one-hour glance appeared physically tougher and more aggressive, and every bit as athletic as U of L. If the Cats were playing North Carolina at home, I'd smell an upset.

"Defense and rebounding are going to be really, really outstanding," Gillispie said. "Our depth is going to be outstanding. I'm really pleased with where we are."

"But he brought it every single day. I'm talking about practices, games, whatever. His effort was the most consistent I've ever seen for a freshman. He had a workhorse attitude and was a team guy. I've never seen anybody, ever, not have a bad day. But he never had one of those days. That's why he keeps getting better and better." -- Coach Billy Gillispie on Patrick Patterson.
