Since 1999 we wanted a coach who would run and play man to man just like the old days under Rick. Don't lie to yourself it is true and if you say it is not then you have not been true to yourself. We want a coach who could bring in the top High School players and under Tubby's style of play that was not going to happen. The new and improve High Schoolers want to run and gun and not play 1/2 of the court. So now we have the coach and it's going to take a few years for you to get your dream. If you can not understand this then maybe you should watch hockey or maybe some floor dancing and ice skating is a good sport. Blue Fans, players out there he is going to run and gun......his style of play. Tell them how much we need them for this type of playing and we are going to get good players who want to show its going to take a little time to get the players we want that can run. Billy has try to get his players into shape and do this as you all know we have players who can not do this. He is not going to change his system for you and me to win a few games. He wants to show the younger players themselves as a pro players in a pro system. Wake up and smell the rose cause you will be kicking yourself in a few years for this unholy putting down of a UK coach who we all wanted his style of play. We just have 3 players who fit in this mold as I see it. Patterson and Meeks and Jasper. Remember one thing I am no english major or writer so no need to kick me around for my English or use of words,nouns, verbs or spelling as I don't care about that. But I will say how I feel and hope you all understand what I am saying.
P.S. Think about this how did Rick get the players to UK. Playing this style. He just couldn't treat pro players like college kids thats why he was not a very good Pro coach.
