So, I finally broke down and decided to join the millions of other bloggers around the world, and THIS is my first post.
I just watched KY eke out a 2 point victory against Arkansas after being down 18. We got hot with the 3’s this game. But this team has NO offensive scheme, and all I hear from Tubby is about “taking people off the dribble”. I think that is a recipe for disaster.
UK has gone steadily down over the years since Tubby took the helm. The time for excuses has passed. Rupp used to be a place people feared and KY used to win half their games just based on the intimidation factor. I don’t think there is a team out there now that is scared to play KY at home anymore.
Only time will tell. But the 1996 – 1998 teams seem like a distant memory now. Will we have to go through another 18 year drought before we win a Championship? For a program the caliber of KY that was handed on a silver platter to Tubby, to be where we are now – not even nationally ranked – is a crying shame. And I have but one man to blame.
