There are public rumors that major booster(s) are using media members to request e-mails from the UK athletics department regarding Bobby Petrino. Anyone have thoughts on this? If Mitch and other SEC ADs are caught attempting to "black ball" Petrino, things could get VERY ugly...VERY fast.
Sounds like grasping at straws because they apparently won't get what they wanted.
btw, it's Larry Vaught who is reporting this.
Or trying to draw this coaching search into a pubic forum....not internally by Mitch.
Who knows what is going on. I think UK fans have every right to draw it into a public forum. I do agree with what Matt said, but it still needs to be made public and given the stakes involved all options should be considered.
Great... we're gonna have some high and mighty morons make this so ugly, that NO COACH will want to come here.
Just mail your damn money in and STFU!
Also, if this is going on they're not likely to find much. Barnhart isn't a big e-mail guy.
Larry V. and the other morons need to leave the AD alone and let him do his job!!!!!
Where did Vaught report this?
UKAA will deny the request atleast until after the search is over. The news organizations can file their open records request, be denied, and wait for a court hearing that will be put off until the search is over. yawn.
Wish I would have thought of that.
Well said......some people just need to get a grip on their own damn job and their own damn life. Acting like of bunch of schoolgirls.

We have some boosters who need to better understand their role. Also, vaught should be ashamed at his reporting on the job search. His joe b hall interview was embarrassing
Vaught has openly turned on Barnhart and his handling of UK football. He's even more willing to opine his thoughts on Barnhart on the Sunday morning radio show on 630wlap.
Boosters have gotten this program in trouble before, which may be why AD has to keep them at arm's length. We hire an AD and then won't let him do his job, and then blame him for all it's woes and take credit ourselves for all it's successes. Sound familiar?
Last September I asked Larry if UK was still recruiting Dy'Shawn Mobley because I was going to go check him out in person if we were. Larry told me that UK was no longer interested. I decided to go to the game anyway because it was easily the best game within 100 miles of here. Steve Pardue went to see him that night, and 2 weeks later Mobley committed. I like Larry, but from that point on I take anything he says with a grain of salt.
Larry Vaught's childish antics have grown tiresome very quickly. He has obviously lost access, or at least the access that he wants, and is using his blog as an outlet for his frustrations.
As for the open records request, it's interesting that it is coming from the CJ. Even more interesting will be whether the LHL will reciprocate when UL undertakes its new coaching search in the future. Everyone knows nothing harmful could come from communications between the AD, BOT, President, and potential coaching candidates that are likely still working for their employer with several weeks left in the season.
