You know, I've always been a big believer in the phrase "What goes around, comes around" To put it simply, If you act like a jerk then usually it comes back to bite you in the ass. Never has this saying been more true than is the case with our hard-partying, dumbass coach, Billy Gillispie.
Things were going fine. We had just destroyed Tennessee, and were sitting pretty atop the SEC east and playing pretty good. If you had told me then that we would not be going to the big dance this year I would have probably laughed in your smug face. "Not make the NCAA's? Ha! We are rolling!" I would have probably told you at the time.
"UK will be in the tournament. It's just what we do!" I would have said.
Then, in a move perhaps myself or no one will ever fully understand,our arrogant jerk of a coach decides to make a total ass out of himself, and the entire Kentucky program by totally being, you guessed it, a total jerk to a sideline reporter just doing her job, not once, but twice! Did she spurn his advances like some websites are reporting? We may never know for sure. One thing we DO know for sure-- Things went to shit after that first interview and now it seems the whole state wants his head on a platter. Now, barring a miracle, (and with his coaching decisions and substitution patterns, it will be) we will miss the tournament for the first time since 1991! Add all this to the fact that he decided it would be a good time to give the Herald Leader a tour of his McMansion at a time when a lot of Kentuckians are losing their jobs(why does a bachelor with no kids need 6000 sq. feet?), it forces me to quote one John Winston Lennon:
"Instant Karma's gonna get you. Gonna knock you right in the head." Jackass!
(I added that last part)
In case you missed the interviews. Here they are, in all their glory.
