    Billy Donovan agreeing to become the next UK coach and then backing out at the last minute.

    They talked about one on KSR that I'd never heard before. Pitino wanted to come back to UK while he was with the Celtics and the terms were initially agreed upon, but then Rick backed off and said he couldn't do that to Tubby.

    Yeah that would've been brutal. Well, every guy has to demonstrate having scruples at least once in his life, right?

    How about the Pitino not playing Derek Anderson vs Arizona so he could save him and pick him in the draft

    If memory serves he went to the UK / Florida game that year and talked it out with the three.

    I have it on good authority that players at WKU — even walk-ons — got $50 handshakes during the Murray Arnold era. Kinda begs a lot of questions about what may have been going on at a serious basketball school such as UK at the time. And I regularly saw UK players allegedly from "difficult, impoverished backgrounds" lined up at the $50 minimum window at Keeneland back in that same era. Saw the same thing at Churchill with UK and UofL players at the time. They probably all dated very rich girls, though.

    Donovan had a UK clause in his old Florida contact.

    I know it's women's basketball, but does anyone know what the rumor was about Mickie Demoss that they alluded to on KSR when discussing UK conspiracies. Evidently something transpired, just wondering what it was.
