John Clay will be on at 8.
KSR will have one at 10. Good luck with this one, since they have been slammed and their servers are struggling to keep up. You can go to coveritlive.com and register for a free account and get to it that way.
See you there. But right now, all I want to do is....dance.
Wow Clay. Didn't know you were that kind of a dancer. TheBigBooyah, on the other hand, prefers to rock it like this.
CatsPause - The Cats have done well in Memphis in 2009.
Just spoke to Clay. He will be eating at Wah Mei from the local Chinese restaurant. On the other hand, I'm still on a heavy diet of chewy Sweet Tarts and Red Bull. This may be why the latest posts have been quick, not thought out, and nervous sounding.
We're not out of the woods yet!
***5:12 pm UPDATE***
With all due respect to former Coach Joe B. Hall, if he was the guy on behalf of UK to give the final recruiting pitch to Calipari, I don't like our chances. Somebody get Nazr on the phone fast!
***5:22 pm UPDATE***
Matt Jones says UK has given Calipari a deadline for tonight. Finally. He might not come, but at least someone at UK is starting to put the hammer down.
***5:36 pm UPDATE***
AP reporting UK has sent a private jet to Memphis scheduled to land at 5:15 CDT. I'm guessing a pilot will have the ultimate say-so whether or not we have a new coach on board. You wonder why I named this PANDA WATCH 2009??
***5:50 pm UPDATE***
***6:10 pm UPDATE***
Of all the people I've met in my life, the two people I've known to have ever worked for the Bluegrass Airport have come back to give me inside info. They have confirmed planes fly into and out of the Bluegrass Airport, some privately chartered. My source also tells me the privately chartered plane will be bringing "The Door" with them. You're welcome.
Courier-Journal says the decision is sometime this afternoon. Arizona offered him as well. He said, "No thanks."
So, let's discuss the 13 scholarship spots that UK has to offer and who should get them. NCAA rules view scholarships as a yearly renewable offer. In other words, just because you got a scholarship last year, you aren't guaranteed one this year.
My 13, in no particular order, are:
1. Pat Pat
2. Jodie Meeks
3. John Wall
4. DeMarcus Cousins
5. Xavier Henry
6. Daniel Orton
7. Darius Miller
8. John Hood
9. Ramon Harris
10. Harrelson/Pilgrim (one of the two)
11. Perry Stevenson
12. Liggins/Vilarino (one of the two)
13. Kevin Galloway
Those that don't make the list that currently have scholarships are given the choice to walk on.
Disagree with me in the comments section.
This guy looks vaguely familiar, but I can't quite put my finger on it. Seems like he has had something to do with UK sports, but it has been so long ago I can't really remember.
The only thing out of the ordinary about this video is his reaction to whether Calipari has called Gillispie. BCG asks not to answer the question. You'd think BCG wouldn't have much to say on it, and a simple, "No, why would he call me?", would be fine. His reaction, however, makes you wonder if he has been called.

Andy Katz says an 8-year/$35 million contract is very close to being signed.
Reports of Memphis millionaires going to Calipari's house tonight for one last ditch effort.
Larry Vaught and LEX 18 are confirming from multiple sources Calipari has been hired by UK. (see below)
Nothing from ESPN, Yahoo, CBS, SI involving confirmation of hiring. Each saying its very close though.
Wikipedia, on the other hand, said John Calipari was the UK coach. Good enough for me!
(I think its been updated now to say otherwise)
Two years later on this date, Tubby Smith led a far less talented group of Cats to San Antonio to bring home Kentucky's 7th National Championship. The team, known as the Comeback Cats, were down 13 to Utah before winning 78-69. Jeff Sheppard was Most Outstanding Player, Scott Padgett was All-Final Four for the second straight year, and Wayne Turner appeared in his third straight Final Four.
...As does Larry Vaught.
And LEX 18, the Kentucky Kernel, and these people.
"Sources" tell me that Rick Pitino is offering to pay UK $3M to hire Gillispie back.
Cal is the man! Reporting a 6 year deal worth about $40 million. You do the math. The more I'm hearing, the above paragraph seems spot on.
Press conference set for as soon as late this afternoon to announce John Calipari as the new basketball coach of Kentucky. Everyone should meet on campus on with their molotov cocktails..............................(kidding).
PANDA WATCH 2009: The latest:
Meanwhile, a Memphis radio station is reporting that Calipari has a 3:30 meeting with Memphis boosters. He could give his decision then. There is also talk of a possible 4 p.m. announcement. I’ve been told that another station is reporting that Calipari will not decide until tonight.
***3:28 UPDATE ***
Jerry Tipton is reporting that a deal is close to being finalized and John Clay is saying he has heard that the UK team has been told to be ready for a 4:30 meeting.
A Fox station in Memphis has a live feed online, outside the Memphis athletics offices. You can view the live feed here. I just saw Alan Cutler chasing Calipari into the building.
Meet your newest UK recruits (assuming Cal is our guy):
Demarcus Cousins - 6'9"-250lbs. - 5-star power forward. Consensus top 5 player for 2009. Has not signed a letter of intent, will follow Cal.
John Wall - 6'4"-184 - 5-star point guard. Highly sought after by many schools. Exactly what UK needs. Memphis is on his short list, and thoughts are that UK would be on his short list if Cal were here.
Nolan Dennis - 6'5"-185lbs. - 4-star shooting guard. Has signed LOI, but mother says there is a provision that he can get out of it and follow Cal.
Xavier Henry - 6'6"-210lbs - 5-star shoting guard. Has signed LOI, but also says he has the option to be released and follow Cal.
The question then remains, where are we going to find enough scholarships?
Rumor is that Marc Maggard is reporting that Cal has turned down Memphis' counter offer and has resigned as Memphis head coach. Do we really want to hire an unemployed coach?
***12:48 pm UPDATE***
FoxSports.com's Jeff Goodman reports no offer has been made, but meetings with a third-party have taken place. No meetings with Barnhart or Todd have taken place. Your refresh button hates you right now, no?
***12:55 pm UPDATE***
Jerry Tipton says UK has officially asked Memphis to discuss its vacant coaching position with John Calipari. He says its near a done deal. He's currently on SportsCenter. REFRESH, REFRESH, REFRESH.
***1:22 pm UPDATE ***
Gary Parish says we could know in the next 24 hours.
Rick Bozich says that William Wesley, a very close friend, says: "What's going to happen is going to be monumental for college basketball. It's going to be exciting. It's going to be great."
University of Memphis coach John Calipari met with his players this morning
to discuss his involvement with the University of Kentucky opening, according to
a source close to the situation.
While Calipari did not say explicitly what he planned to do, players left
the meeting convinced that Calipari would take the job. According to the source,
Calipari told the team that Kentucky was the Notre Dame of basketball.
oops, looks like Mark had already posted a link below. Sorry to repost. Carry on.
Get out all your UK paraphernalia, ITS ON.
While Calipari did not say explicitly what he planned to do, players left the meeting convinced that Calipari would take the job. According to the source, Calipari told the team that Kentucky was the Notre Dame of basketball.
In other news, Billy Gillispie won an award for being the biggest whiner of the week. (NBC Sports)

A reenactment of today's game.
Today was a great day.
After church, I filled my belly up with spicy catfish at cracker barrel, then retreated home to a nice comfy couch. The couch was too comfy, and I fell asleep. All I remember is waking up and seeing the Michigan St. players celebrating the win.
Life is sweet.
I guess we should have seen a UofL loss coming. Pitino doesn't want Calipari to have a leg up on him in the persuit of the UK job. So, like coach Cal, Pitino threw the game today so that he could begin his discussions with Mitch and the gang.
My sources tell me that Pitino and Cal will begin a bidding war tomorrow for the job, with the job going to whoever is willing to take it for the least amount of money. By the end of the day, I'd say they will be paying us for the ability to takeover as head coach. That's what my sources are telling me, at least.
Rick Pitino's thoughts
Tom Izzo on UK coaching vacancy
Enjoy a great sports Sunday.
Saturday, March 28, 2009
Rick Pitino evidently feels the need to give advice.
There is no question Ricky knows how to coach and motivate players. He knows how to build programs and win ballgames. However, evidently Ricardo knows a thing or two about who should be the next coach at UK. In the post-game presser for the Arizona game, Pitino stated that Ford or Pelphrey would be perfect for the UK job, and one of them should be hired.
He knows what he is doing. Stirring the pot.
As soon as I can find a link of the video, I'll throw it up.
The press conference was nothing to write home about, simply Billy Gillispie auditioning for a new job. I thought it might get ugly when I first heard about it, but Billy either thought better of it, or his counsel got to him in time and told him it would be a bad idea. He was his post-UK "whoa is me I'm trying to walk away with 6 mil" self, which is totally understandable. He called a press conference to say everything was fine and he holds no ill-will toward anyone at the University (yeah right). A press conference done for no other reason than damage control.
For a recap of the press conference, click here.
Matt Jones has an interesting take of some behind-the-scenes stuff that could have led to the dismissal. Many rumors have been out there about his relationship with the players. This may be some proof. FYI - he's not the only one with said "happenings". Smoke = Fire.
Jodie Meeks' father says he supports the UK Athletic Department decision 100%. Smoke = Fire.
Rob Gidel also lets his feelings be known in a great piece on KSR. Billy Clyde still doesn't get it.
Friday, March 27, 2009
From the live chats of John Clay and Matt Jones tonight, the consensus seemed to me Billy Gillispie had to go. As a coach, relationships with your players are the most important thing on Earth. From what I'm understanding, this coach had absolutely horrible relationships with his players. And as much in the know as these guys are, I'd be hard pressed to disagree with either. If there are any truth to rumors of Meeks, Miller, Stewart, Liggins, Harrelson, etc transferring, Billy had to go.
At the same time, rumors are rumors. We'll never know anything for sure unless the players come out and say something about it. At this point, they might just want to move on with their lives. One the other hand, if anyone is in contact with the players on a regular basis, tell them to get in contact with me and I'll grab the rights to a tell-all book and give them a handsome cut. I'll give you a finder's fee as well.
Maybe taking some time to get a coach isn't a bad thing. We rushed and got duped last time. Why not talk to alumni (former players) to get a feel on everything. They would pack more of a punch than simply Mitch Barnhart. You can roast me below if you'd like but Oklahoma's Jeff Capel and Villanova's Jay Wright are at the top of my wish list. I'm simply not sold on Travis Ford just yet. Don't know what it is, but I'm not. One thing is for sure though - if and when Kentucky announces a new basketball coach, I will convince myself this man is THE ONE. Hopefully you will too. We cannot stay divided, the terrorists will win.
I've just fired my coach. Now what?
Oh, fellow Cat fans. What does the future hold? After Tubby left, I was confident the next coach would see immediate results. I couldn't wait until the coaching decision was made so that we could start the celebration. This time around, I am not as optimistic. I wasn't really excited about Donovan, but would have been comfortable with the hire. Now that he has withdrawn his name, my outlook turns quite negative. The only option I could get excited about is Calipari, but don't think there is any chance that he will get a sniff due to his brushes with the NCAA. Even with the excitement I would have for Calipari, I myself would have my own worries about his ethics.
John Clay is planning on a live blog tonight at 9:00. I plan to be there because I'm desperate for some hopeful news. Especially the way Loserville is currently thumping Arizona.
Matt Jones at KSR is doing a live blog on KSR tonight as well. His is starting at 9:30...depending on if their server cooperates.
Cutler: "Billy, you're not really gonna run away from me are ya?""
(both running down a hallway - Cutler with 10-inch mic in BCG's face - BCG on cell phone)
BCG: "You need to get in shape don't ya?"
Cutler: "I can run all day with you."
Cutler: "Your reaction Billy?"
(BCG runs into office and looks back at security gesturing towards Cutler)
BCG: "Nope. Nope. Get 'em out!"
Round 2 tomorrow at 11:00am? Can't wait to see what Cutler's got in store for the cowboy.
Mitch's interpretation of the buyout echoed my feelings on the ordeal. Click here to see how awesome I am.
The University sees this Memorandum as a continuous one-year contract.
Dave Baker just reported Billy Donovan has been asked and declined the offer to become the UK basketball coach.
Kentucky has reportedly waited until a replacement coach is in place before letting go of Gillispie, who spent two seasons in Lexington.
It will be interesting how this all plays out. Was it bad timing two years ago? Is now a good time to leave Gainesville? Can he really turn down an offer to coach Pat Patterson and Jodie Meeks along with some possible gangsta recruits? Why wouldn't he want to be at the reigns of the first program to reach 2000 victories?
For those of you stuck at work, or otherwise don't have access to a TV, the news conference will be on WKYT.com. On the main page, above BCG's pic and the announcement of the firing, click on the banner that says "UK Basketball Special Coverage".
HERE WE GO? If there is another press conference within 48-72 hours, Billy Donovan or Travis Ford is the guy. If not, UK will actually do research this time.
Meeting was at 2:00pm and lasted approximately 18 minutes at Lee Todd's campus mansion. Gillispie said "Hook 'em Horns" as he was leaving. Im kidding.
Everyone is piling on now.
http://www.kentucky.com/ has some stuff about an 18-minute meeting at Todd's house, information about the buyout, etc.
Interesting quote from the Kentucky.com article...
A driver in a green Chevy Silverado with Texas license plates and a Texas
A&M decal on the window dropped Gillispie off at Maxwell Place about 2 p.m.
The same vehicle picked Gillispie up and drove away at 2:18 p.m.
WKYT has reported Billy Gillispie called them and told them he is calling his own press conference tomorrow at 11:00am. Oh no, this could get ugly.
Will update as more comes in.
And if you're bored and like mad libs, Tom Beisner at KSR has a UK coaching rumor mad lib. Funny stuff.
What? Not the news you were looing for?
Thursday, March 26, 2009
11:30 pm - On their 11:00 news , WHAS11 said they received a memo from UK saying that Billie G. has not been fired, and there is no scheduled press conference for tomorrow. WHAS11 then went on to restate that their sources say BCG will not be the coach next year. I guess I can understand the statement about there being no presser tomorrow, because there actually isn't one scheduled, but I don't understand how they will be able to explain the comment of him not being fired if in fact it turns out he has been or will be soon.
11:43 pm - The link above no longer takes you to article about BCG being fired. It is now just a blank page, and there is no other mention of their earlier report anywhere else on their site. Looks like WHAS is trying to back away from this story post haste.
We have Grey's tivo'd (for Andrea, back off!) and I have gone through and there is no such announcement.
Another rumor is there will be a news report at 10 on WHAS. Time will tell.
10:15 pm: Matt Jones says WHAS in L-ville is confirming the report that he is gone. I was watching WHAS the entire time and nothing has been aired. Don't understand what is going on.
10:20 pm: I also think it is odd that there is nothing on the WHAS11 website. Either Matt Jones is completely full of it or someone is playing a joke on certain WHAS viewers.
10:25 pm: More reports of L-ville viewers seeing the WHAS report. These aren't just people repeating what other people said they saw, these are actual people that saw it first-hand.
10:35 pm: Now I have officially seen it with my own eyes. WHAS did a teaser for tonight's news program and said their sources say that BCG is officially out. However, they don't name their sources, so I don't guess this is any more official than what anyone else is saying.

Good enough for me............as is UK hockey and the Costello twins.
Also, am I the only one that thinks Mitch needs to be called on the carpet for the current state of UK basketball? After all, Billy is just being Billy. We knew (and the LHL reported) that BCG would be abrasive to the media. He was rough on the TA&M press down there, we all saw the youtube videos. We also knew that BCG would work the kids down to the nub. Don Haskins, the old UTEP coach famous for his demanding practices, was quoted as saying something about how he hadn't ever seen anyone tougher on his players. So, it seems to me that Billy hasn't surprised us at all. Per Dennis Greene - "They are who we thought they were".
If we knew ahead of time that BCG was going to be this way, and that way isn't a good fit for UK, shouldn't we be more fired up about Mitch's job than BCG's? After all, if I hire someone even thought I know they aren't a good fit for UK, who's fault is it that things don't work out?
I believe the only thing that saves Mitch right now is if he were to keep BCG and they make an immediate turnaround next year. Short of that, I think Mitch has a lot of explaining to do.
UK President Lee Todd attended the game. He declined to comment on
Gillispie's job status, but he did say he spoke with the coach about the
future of the program late last week.
Hmm, so Billy says they didn't talk about it, Todd says they did. Sounds like Billy isn't wanting to let the bad-news-cat out of the bag.

**UPDATE** - DeAndre Liggins also said in a postgame interview he "put himself in a bad situation" by coming here, but doesn't blame Coach Gillispie, he blames himself. Liggins will re-evaluate coming back to UK next season.
Here are my three keys to the game:
1) Someone other than the big two has to either shoot or attack the rim.
Ramon did a decent job of this in Omaha. Everyone knows Darius is more comfortable of late. Porter cannot continue to pass up open looks, if for no other reason than to keep the offense flowing and the defense honest. Perry continued his efficient postseason play with a double-double. This is a must.
2) Our perimeter defense must be consistent.
We lucked out Monday night. Creighton hit 8 of 19 three pointers. Usually a recipe for disaster. But they had no inside game against us. This will not be a problem tonight as human Shrek will provide the Irish with tons of scoring in and around the paint, leaving the defense vulnerable from the outside. Three point specialist Kyle McAlarney is a very good compliment to Harangody.
3) Rebounding, Rebounding, Rebounding
Rumor has it the Big East is a physical conference. Well....I guess there's only one way for us to combat this!!
... in 1993, your University of Kentucky Wildcats went into enemy territory and blasted Wake Forest in the Sweet 16 on their way to the Final Four. The Cats came out on fire hitting their first eight 3-pointers, led by Jamal Mashburn's 5-5. The lead at halftime was 60-26. Travis Ford helped out by hitting five 3-pointers and going 10-11 from the field on the day. The final tally was 103-69. Ford, Mashburn, and Jared Prickett would all be named to the All Region team. This was one of the most overwhelming performances I remember from the Pitino Era, topped off by a 3 from Todd Svoboda to end the game. If the hair on the back of your neck didnt stand up during this clip, I can't help you.
I have just received an email from a source who I shall refer to only as "hburg_volfan" that proves that BCG has been fired from the head coaching position. I know the source is solid, because he was able to get the above photo as proof. As you can see, Billy must have spent all his money on alcohol and women because he doesn't even have enough cash to find decent transportation back to Texas.
Additionally, Billy Donovan has been called up from the
There you have it folks. The scoop of all scoops. You heard it here first. I bet my journalistic integrity that this is the truth.
Of course, I don't know how much my journalistic integrity is worth. After this post, I am announcing my retirement from this blog. I just received an email from Prince Alibaba who promises me millions if I help him smuggle his money out of Kenya.
Smell ya, suckers!

After doing tons of "Internet research" tonight, I found a very interesting read by one Richard "Dick" Gabriel of WKYT. Its the most unique look at the UK Athletic Department since the beginning of the Mitch Barnhart era. Check it out if you get a chance.
Tubby Smith began thinking about an exit strategy long before that spring day, when he bolted for Minnesota. In fact, he himself told me Lou Holtz had advised him to get out, back when Smith was sending top-seeded teams to the NCAA tourney, in the early 2000’s. Holtz had learned first-hand, at Notre Dame, what it was like when the cheering ebbs. Get out while you’re ahead, he counseled Tubby.
On Billy Donovan:
There had been, indeed, negotiations – informal ones, by people flying below both the UK and UF official channels. And they had agreed in principle. Both sides thought the deal was done. In fact, if you recall, the Cats’ Pause posted on the front page of its web site what turned out to be speculation on the situation, likening it to the Kentucky Derby, with the blanket of roses ready for draping.
On the football coaching search:
That man was Norm Chow.
The hottest assistant coach in the country, Chow had been busy helping Southern California become relevant again, working with Pete Carroll, who had rejuvenated Trojan football.
Barnhart believed Chow was the answer and the two came to terms. Only, the night before Chow was to fly to Lexington, a family matter arose, forcing him to call Barnhart and back away from their agreement. He had to stay on the west coast, Chow explained.
Brian Hood, father of UK recruit Jon Hood, said of a Gillispie dismissal that, "I don't think it's in the realm of possibility . . . If it were to happen, it's something you sit back and re-evaluate. He signed with the University of Kentucky. At the same time, the guy he plays for matters."
Larry Vaught has an interview with Larry Orton, father of star UK commit Daniel Orton. Orton says if UK fires BCG, Daniel would not be a lock to come to UK.
He goes on to say things like, "It would almost be like starting recruiting all over again", and "I just hope there is nothing for us to worry about because Daniel wants to play for coach Gillispie." He also mentions a few other schools that are still trying hard to lure Orton away.
Think about what could happen if BCG leaves. If you think our team lacks talent now, consider the alternatives.

NASA's mistake was allowing write-ins. Colbert urged viewers of his Comedy Central show, "The Colbert Report" to write in his name. And they complied, with 230,539 votes. That clobbered Serenity, one of the NASA choices, by more than 40,000 votes. Nearly 1.2 million votes were cast by the time the contest ended Friday.
Correction to my last post. The game will be aired on ESPN, not ESPN2.
It looks like Creighton is a 2 point favorite, with both teams matching up pretty equally. A small nod to UK for a slightly better offensive and defensive shooting percentage, but Creighton has home court advantage.
If something goes down with BCG in the near future, expect the University and its crack staff of attorneys to pounce all over this gray area, leveraging a quick buyout. And this buyout won't be of the estimated $6 million kind either. I'm sure BCG's cowboy lawyer from down south would be more than happy to negotiate a fair settlement between he and the dream team of lawyers Lee Todd already has working on this thing. On the other hand, any person that's been associated with Texas in the past decade HAS come across as somewhat stubborn, no?
It's a fun read if you have a few minutes this afternoon. And a read that showed what optimism the University had for its basketball program and their new found Coach. Tonight could be a paramount moment moving forward for UK basketball.
Big game tonight, as the good guys travel to Omaha to face the evil Creighton BlueJays. Tip is at 7 on ESPN2. I have heard some posters on other sites saying they hope UK loses so we can get on with wrapping up BCG's future. That kind of talk blows me away. Regardless of you opinions on the coach, we should all rally behind the team and always cheer for a UK victory.
By now you've all probably seen the piece from WKYT where they interviewed the parents of some of next year's recruits. All the parents are saying the same thing: If BCG is out, we are not a lock to come to UK. Does this concern any of the anti-BCG folks? If you think this year is bad, consider the possibilities...
There is a good post today from A Sea of Blue talking about how MB has already told us what he plans to do, so we shouldn't be expecting weekly updates or comments about BCG's job.
If you have a Neflix subscription, take a walk down memory lane and watch the 1996 NCAA Championship. It is available either by a normal rental or by using their "Instant Viewing" feature. Ahh, the glory days. One thing that hits me immediately is the physical differences between the 96 team and the UK teams of recent past. Just from their outward appearance, you can tell that they are more talented. Everyone is big, fast, and coordinated. These kids were just built differently.
Maybe it isn't a fair comparison. Not many teams, UK or otherwise, can compare to the talent assembled on that '96 team.
Anyway, here is a little clip sure to either make you all nostaligic or thoroughly depressed...

On Sunday, the Cats dropped their first home game of the season and Vandy avoided the sweep by hanging on 4-2 at Cliff Hagan Stadium. The loss dropped UK to 15-5, 3-3 in the SEC. For a complete recap, head on over to UKathletics.com.
In addition to this main story, the Comeback Cats were 17 down to Duke four minutes into the 2nd half, but turned the tables down the stretch to earn UK's 13th Final Four berth. Wayne Turner, Scott Padgett, and Cameron Mills will live in Kentucky lore the rest of the lives partly due to their involvement in this one game. This humiliating comeback helped wipe away some of the "diarrhea-like" feel from 1992. Kentucky ended the game on a 32-13 run to win 86-84 in a masterful coaching job by a man who loved to spend his free time in a bathtub as a child. Go figure.

Friday, March 20, 2009
Poll #1 - Four games remaining, how many do the Cats win? Answer: 0.
5% correct, 95% wrong. I'm sure the 5% voted after the fact.
Poll #2 - Pat Patterson _______. Answer: TBD
53% - the majority says he goes. A fanbase divided. Not surprising is it?
Poll #3 - Cats = NCAA Tourney team. Answer: False
63% say false. Can the 37% please explain themselves?
Poll #4 - What seed will the Cats get? Answer: #4 in NIT
43% say #2 NIT seed. Leading me to believe, the readers would have chosen a crappier seed had it been an option. I take full blame for this poll, as I was too optimistic for UK. Apologies.
Poll #5 - Will the Cats still be alive Friday afternoon of the SEC Tournament? Answer: Who cares.
55% believed they would not. Technically they were alive at 1:59pm, but they were out by 2:05pm.
Poll #6 - Will the 2009-10 Cats still have PG problems? Answers: TBD, most likely.
61% say yes. Fair enough. Definitely no confidence from anyone.
Poll #7 - I am most looking forward to _____________. Answer: Reese's peanut butter Easter eggs
40% agreed. These are my favorite readers. Please step forward. Football season was a close second with 31%. While 1 lone voter is having the time of his/her life because the NIT is currently in season. Whoever you are, wherever you are, you are a sick human being--or a Louisville fan.
