Meeting Set on Gillespie's Future at UK

WKYT in Lexington has confirmed that there is a scheduled meeting between Billy Gillespie, Mitch Barnhart, and Lee Todd regarding the future of Billy Gillespie and the Kentucky program. This is confirmed information and not a rumor.

On the rumor front there still seems to be the biggest wave on Billy Donovan being the candidate for Kentucky but all reports are still unconfirmed. With all that has transpired in the last two days I find it hard to believe that Billy Gillespie would be back as coach of the Kentucky Wildcats. Rumors have linked Billy Donovan, Travis Ford, John Calipari, Rick Pitino, and Sean Miller to the Kentucky job but all are just rumors. Most of the rumors throughout the state are completely unfounded but at least worth discussing amidst the madness in the Bluegrass state. Stay tuned for more to come.

Bring us Rick Barnes....he has lived in the shadow of a BIG football school and still managed to win games (winning records in Big 10, ACC and Big East). He is also despised by TarHeel Nation...so, keeping UK ahead in the all-time wins column would be a plus for him, too.

Rick Barnes would be a great hire. I am concerned as a Kentucky fan as to who we can get. There was a lot swirling around Coach Gillespie but two years to get the ax may have some shy away from the program. We shall see.

Running a coach off after two years is not going to help bring a big name. Jay Wright and Rick Barnes already turned the job down two years ago, what has happened in the last 2 years that would make them change their mind?
