The third time is usually the charm. Billy Gillispie will never get to find that out. Today, to the surprise of no one, he was ousted as Kentucky head basketball coach. The NIT, which is an acceptable alternative for many schools, was an insult to the Big Blue Nation. They missed the NCAA tournament field for the first time since 1991. Basketball is king at the University of Kentucky, and the king has lost his crown. All the king's horses and all the kings men, couldn't put UK's program together again. It does a body and soul good to see Duke and Kentucky basketball struggling, especially at the same time!
