After the whirlwind circus that took place last night, it may be good on this morning (where once again our site is getting slammed) to take a step back and see where we are:
— As of now, Billy Gillispie still is the Coach at UK. I know that there are some internet reports to the contrary and suggesting that the deal has been done. All I can say is that everyone I have spoken with, both officially and unofficially, still says the deed hasnt been done. That is what I will go with at this time.
— Everyone should expect a press conference tomorrow concerning the resolution of this matter. I am told that as of now that is the plan, although that could change.
— Patrick Patterson suggested after the game that he would like to come back but that it will be a decision he makes down the road. This conforms to what we have said all along that Patrick has a “strictly business” decision to make.
— Jodie Meeks was very non-committal in his answers about returning. I think the status of the program and the coaching situation will play a big role in his decision.
— DeAndre Liggins said he would have to talk to his parent before deciding his future. The coaching situation is likely to play a big role.
— AJ Stewart suggested that he hadnt thought about next year and would decide later about his future. Most believe, as do I, that he is likely going to transfer either way.
— Michael Porter said that he is wanting to come back but has a lot to think about, referencing his new child, his new marriage and the fact that he is finished with school. That could go either way.
— Darius Miller suggested that he would come back to UK no matter what.
That is where we are….we will update you as we hear something….if you sign up for our Twitter account (KySportsRadio), you can make sure to get the info even if our site is down.
