    Congressional seats are nice but it is Senate seats the GOP needs to protect.

    If I thought Cal knew or should have known, I would be outspoken that I think Mitch should fire him. As for those UK fans who would want to keep him so long as he kept winning, that would frustrate to some degree me but wouldn't dwell on it. Back in 89, I felt Sutton was a better coach than he probably really was so I hated losing him but understood it was the right thing to do.

    It was the two I work with, not I who are "boycotting UofL" athletics over not firing Rick, not I. They didn't share their view of other UofL fans.

    I generally don't want to be picky over people's charity but kinda wish he would have donated that to the Muhammad Ali Museum in Louisville.

    In the past 9 months or so, 5 or so JCPS coaches have stepped down, one stepping down for an assistant job. Is this indicative of JCPS not providing a good environment for coaches? As far as the resigning to spend more time with family, I generally take that to mean, "I am quitting and the reasons are personal so please respect my privacy." Kinda like when an announcement comes out at companies that John Doe is leaving the company to persue...

    The (somewhat former) UofL fans who have mentioned to me they will be going to Bellarmine games from now on instead of UofL games have said the fact that Pitino (and in some cases Jurich) have not been fired as the reason. The would prefer 5/8/whatever years of rough rebuilding with a new coach (and possibly AD).

    Saying drastic change is needed is the easy part, specifying what that drastic change will be is the hard part. The obvious change, the president being gone has been made. Now the question is, how deep do the firings need to go? I have no doubt there will be some fired who had nothing to the problems and their job wouldn't make they privy to knowing either but donors, the media and the public in general will demand numerous more walk the...

    Makes sense doing this. My assumption was Stoops was doing this as a favor to his Off Coor, ie too late for OU to hire another coach so they have to let Riley have a season. Turns out, this may be just as good for OU to not lose such an asset like Riley.

    Not upset with this. Making it to the Super Regional was huge for this UK team and gives loads of hope and excitement for the future. UofL is just too much for UK at the moment but if you think about it, UK is now where UofL was five to seven or so years ago.

    Well, the entire board was fired a year or so ago but people said that was too major and drastic. Looking back, it looks to be the appropriate action to take, go with a fresh start to clean things up.

    I am assuming investing in these high risk start up companies is the UofL Foundation investing in Venture Capital i.e. investing in the stock fast growing not yet publicly traded companies needing outside capital to fund fast growth and put themselves in position to do an initial public offering (IPO) of their stock. If the company does have a successful IPO, the venture capital investors (UofL Found) sell their stock on the public open market...

    The university is part of the state and the governor appoints and removes trustees. The foundation I don't believe is part state correct? Therefore it names and removes it's own board members? I wonder how independent the boards were of each other ie were the school's trustee's completely in the dark of all of this or were aware and just didn't act so long as the foundation kept bringing donation money in? The school I worked for had a...

    Before they started classes they could transfer so long as they sat out a year or is that waived with a coaching change? I assumed that was a legend but was never for sure.

    Has Les Miles found a new coaching job yet? If so, they forgot him. What about Auburn's head coach during their championship. I can see his face but forget his name. Is he still out of coaching?

    I think many would argue that Makers kick started the resurgence of bourbon after the dark days of vodka dominance (never understood the popularity of that stuff) in the late 70's and 80's. Maker's creative and quirky advertising brought interest back to bourbon and more importantly quality bourbon and that lead to where we are today and hopefully long into the future.

    For some coaches, the idea of going from #1 man on campus to #2 man on campus with a huge gap between the two may be too much for them regardless of the better program and more money. Is Mack that kind of guy? Not sure but some are.
