re: KY Kernel letter to Mitch Barnhart(Posted by Heresaucer on 11/1/12 at 5:06 pm to Bho)
Bho, Mitch has been a very good AD in regard to other sports. Football makes the money but all student athletes are important and I'm glad Mitch feels that way.
But Mitch is doing a bad job with Football. Last year in his letter to the fans, he tried to use the UT win which was a fluke, as a justification that this program was headed in the right direction. Even though last year was the first time UK hadn't been bowl eligible in years, and the program has steadily declined every year since Joker has been HC.
With the bowl streak, it looked like UK was on the upswing. The last few years knocked the wind out of any momentum we had.
I don't really like Mitch right now, but he could redeem himself by making a good hire.
