    Sacrificial lamb but good experience for him. Probably no other real alternative available that worked.

    So happy they went with the players’ choice! That’s a positive start to picking up the pieces.

    Good luck Coach Padgett, who knows…. maybe he’ll end up being there for the next 25 years LOL. Go Cards!!

    I would say he'll be there roughly 6 months.

    I thought he did a good job at his press conference. In appearance and mannerisms he kind of reminds me of Brad Stevens.........now if he can coach like him.

    I'm not sure if that's a good thing or a bad thing.

    If the players are happy it’s one bright spot amidst the dysfunction. Something to build from.

    Padgett has an opportunity, even if it's just 6 months. Sure he wouldn't like it to be this way but when that door of opportunity opens you gotta' go through it. I really don't think UofL had many options at this time.

    I think it would have been wise to go outside the current program for a coach.
