The nickname should stick now!
This makes about 5 million dollars now that "Buyout Barnhart" has cause UK to cough up with the Gillespie and Phillips contracts.
Would you still have a job if you cost your employer that kind of money in the past 3+ years?
This thread is stupid.
You have convinced me. Mitch should have let Joker and BCG finish their contracts as coaches. That makes do much more sense.
Are you kidding? You say he had the "GUTS" to get rid of Tubby, he didnt get rid of Tubby Tubby was threw at Ky. Ole Mitch isnt a great AD or even an average AD he is as poor of AD that we have ever had and if someone thinks he is the best AD that UK has had in 50 years then that person is living in a fantasy world. So all of you Ole Mitch apologists go ahead and say outrageous things about me and this other persons post but you will be just regretting it in 2 or 3 years if he doesnt hire a good football coach that can change the attitude and wins totals of the football program.
Another thread full of stupid on CP, I can't believe it. . .

I wouldnt expect a FSU fan to know who C.M. Newton is but for anyone to suggest that Ole Mitch is even in the same universe as Newton was is delusional.
I can lol

This is the second big-time, costly mistake hire under "Buyout Barnhart's" watch.
It is easy to recklessly spend someone else's money.
yeah, it's becoming part of the norm now
His disparaging remarks on the radio yesterday ticked off a lot of the UK faithful for good. It's easy to see why he's had such a difficult time in the fundraising department.

NP. That word isn't acceptable here.
Your team. All the time.
Yes, I have friends and family etc. with mental issues too. If that word offends you so easily it's an issue with YOU, not the person saying it. . . The context in which I used it has absolutely nothing to do with mentally challenge people.
Only bashing of UK players, coaches, staff, and administration is allowed here.
See post above. That word isn't acceptable here.
Wasn't talking to you.
The issue isnt with me but it is over.
YOU ARE KIDDING RIGHT PEOPLE. DO YOU KNOW HOW TUFF IT IS RIGHT NOW TO BE AN AD. WITH TITLE 10 AND SO ON. YOU MUST FIELD THE BEST TEAMS AS POSS MENS AND WOMENS.
HE HIRED CAL AND MATHEW MITCH. HE HAS OUR BASEBALL TEAM AT ITS BEST EVER. BEST GUN TEAM EVER. VERY GOOD VOLLYBALL AND ON. YES HE HIRED BROOKS WHO DID WHAT TAKE US TO HOW MANY BOWL GAMES EVER. WHO DO YOU WANT TO HIRE AS AN AD TO DO BETTER.
NOT ONE OF OUR TEAMS ARE IN HOT WATER WITH THE NCAA. PERIOD. HOW MANY OF OUR AD'S CAN SAY THIS.
IF YOU WANT A BETTER FOOTBALL COACH FINE BUT UK MUST DOUBLE THE TICKET PRICES TO DO THIS. 6 TO 8 MILL FOR THE COACH AND HIS STAFF AND DOUBLE THE RECRUITING BUDGET AND SPEND AROUND 100 MILL + ON THE FACILITIES
WELL IT COST MONEY TO HIRE COACHES AND NO COACH WILL SIGN AN AGREEMENT THAT IS NOT SOLID TO THE END. YOU KNOW NOTHING ABOUT THAT SIDE OF THE BUISNESS I GUESS. HOW WOULD YOU LIKE TO DO THERE CONTRACT LOL.
Remember that Joker was a coach-in-waiting. It wasn't like he had a bunch of competitive head coaching offers from other schools. He was an unproven commodity and was given a five year contract worth nearly 10 million dollars.
Why was he not offered an incentive type contract with performance bonuses? You think he was going to turn it down?
Mitch took Joker's compensation package from his coordinator salary ($300,000+) to $1.7 million. I know that in Rich Brooks first year, he made $700,000. I am not sure of his final year's contract. Joker might have been given more money in his first head coaching job than Rich was making in his 35th year. Not right.
Joker was given a five year contract. Why not three and an "if"?
Lots of questions in hindsight, but I raised the same questions at the time he was signed on as UK's new head football coach.
That's the new way that big-time college athletics works and the way that head coaches who under-perform are handled now ... just the way it is.
