Well is he or isn't he already?!

Anyone who lives anywhere in and around the KY area knows that our lucrative job of head men's basketball coach has been up for grabs since last Friday at roughly 4:30.  Man these have been 4 of the longest days of my life!  Well labor might have seemed a little longer.  Seriously, at my house the days have been filled with the Cats Pause "nerd board" (as my friend and I so fondly call it), phone calls, gossip, and my personal favorite, RESEARCH projects!  Yes, you heard me correctly, Wes did his own research this weekend on Xavier's coach to find out more about his style of play and such.  Seriously?  Seriously!  

Now it's looking like our next coach will be John Calipari.  Interestingly enough, when I Googled to find a picture of him, Wikipedia already has him listed as UK's head coach.  At this point I'm pretty sure he's in the air flying to UK, since the media is stalking him and following him on the radar, as if he was Santa!  He's getting a good dose of how Kentucky fans are - CRAZY!  

I suppose I'm pleased with the decision. The fact that Memphis did their darnedest to counter the $40 million offer from UK proves that they think pretty highly of him too.  I have some reservations as to his style of recruiting but until he does something to us, I'll give him the benefit of the doubt.  Just no boys who killed their grandmother please!  

What will everyone talk about now?  I guess now the chatter in my house will switch to which recruits he's bringing with him, how many of ours will still come, how will we fit them all on the team based on our already dwindling number of scholarships.  Hmph, so much for thinking this would be the end!


  1. First, let me say LOVE those profile pics of your sweet boy Colin, so cute!

    Secondly, all I can say is I feel sorry for the poor students who will definitely have a tuition hike at UK to pay this guy, seriously?! in this economy mess already.
