It's great for the voyeur in all of us but, we can occasionally jump in and stir stuff up!
I'll lay it out one last time, so I can clear up the confusion. I don't know who jd Greer is, and yesterday I had no idea that this thread even existed. I received info that Bp is the new head coach at uk, and that the deal is almost done. This was yestrday afternoon, not two weeks ago, not earlier this week, yesterday! I believe the booster, as he is a generous one, having a bball center named after him and all lol. I then popped on this site to see if it had already broke, bc when I get info from people near administration, half the time it's already on here. That's when I saw this thread. Despite the source, I did not believe it, I was shocked, and simply keep saying I'll believe it when I see it! Even though I know it's done, lol. I'm just a skeptic! When I saw this thread, it felt like it was even more of a done deal. I had just heard it from a booster, and then someone I do not know on this board had heard it from another booster as well. I don't consider myself a big advocate of Bp, I frankly was not all that excited, he's got a lot to prove IMO, the media will pepper him right away about his history, whether he's changed, etc. But, in my mind, he's our coach based on what I was told, that's all. I have no idea who mods on this board access for info like this, and I havent read much of what they have said in months since I'm not VIP ( I know it's free trial lol, u guys are great, I still love the site), so I'm not challenging any opinions or info, but that's what I got, Go Cats!!
So by saying that the deal is almost done, you are still giving yoursrlf an out, correct?
I guess time will tell. You're either telling the truth or not.

I'm not lying, nor do I need an out, lol. I'm not saying he is maybe hired by saying the deal is almost done, just that obviously its not completely finalized yet, or it would be public. I'm just sharing knowledge, I am not looking for some kind of recognition, or feeling a need to protect myself if wrong, just relaying info. I'm still not sure if I am happy about it, but I think he is a good coach, so I'm not disappointed.
I just spoke to one of Joe's closest friends in the legislature. He says joe denies that petrino will be the coach and also denies that he has told anybody that Petrino will be the cosch. Tfwiw
I have been a member of Rivals for 9 years. I hardly frequent the football side of the boards so I don't know who is good with information, but there are 2 posters on their House of Blue board that without doubt provide top notch information. Both of those people are saying that Petrino is not going to be the next coach of UK despite all of the talk. One of them, from what I believe is getting his information from someone inside the Arkansas coaching staff. My personnal opinion, is that Barnhardt is not open to Petrino and all this talk from boosters by making statements is nothing more than them trying to put pressure on Mitch to consider BP. For those that don't follow @WildcatsRecruits on Twitter, he tweeted early this morning that the picture will be much clearer by Tues. He has great information, so hopefully he is right and all this rampant speculation will end first of the week.

I'm not saying anything more about the matter. Especially if people are taking things as far as calling or contacting people about hearsay... Sorry I even said anything, I'll know better for next time. I'm retiring from this topic until something is official. Like the last poster said, hopefully it will be over ASAP so we can discuss the future of uk football more accurately and in unison
You're exactly right. It's amazing how people always believe what they want to hear no matter the source. They never consider their source could be wrong. I see it every day. There are some "real winners" on this board when it comes to being gullible and naive.
Boom goes the dynamite.
Why so people feel the need to do this? Just agree or disagree with what someone says... Why do people have to go to the next level and start calling people losers and idiots etc... Jeez... People believe what they want, ok.. Just stop there...
Petrino to UK = pure hogwash.
Same reason some folks feel the need to call names if you don't support a specific candidate.
They can dish it out but can't take it in return.
I guess that's true, I've seen it on both sides. Oh well, it's not ever going to be perfect, just disrupts legit convos sometimes. I would love if they make the announcement in the next week to get it out of the way...
Hogwash = UK

You are more than welcome to stop being a fan.
JMO, but if an announcement isn't made by next week, I think it's a very clear sign that Mitch has been told "no" by most of his top candidates.. Mitch has had 3 weeks to put his list together and prioritize who is worth of an offer. Next week is when you would expect the coaching movements to really start popping. If a coach is going to leave a school for UK, next week is when you would expect it considering UK has probably been negotiating with the candidate for at least 2 weeks and their regular season is now complete. JMO of course.
You are more than welcome to kiss my ass.
Bttt. Folks need to keep looking at this hilarious thread.
Just had another family member who is tight with some boosters whose family played under bear Bryant at Alabama saying the same thing, it's bobby p... Won't guarantee like my other source, but they say they can confirm he is clearly at the top of their list... That's as far as he will go with it
Matt, I'm not sure why you're in such a hurry for a decision. This site hasn't seen this much traffic in months
Shepp, I havent agreed with you in the past on some things but on this particular comment you couldnt be more right. It has come to in many cases personal attacks if someone doesnt agree with you and like you said instead of saying "I disagree with you" they call you all kinds of things that are really inappropriate. I know that I have disagreed with a lot of people on this site but I have never called someone a liar, or stupid or make some off color remark about their mother and other words that I dont wish to repeat but trust me most of these things have been said on this site on numerous occasions. I have no problem with someone telling me Im wrong or dont have the facts straight or anything like that but lets all of us refrain from using vulgar or profanity ridden posts to humiliate the person that you disagree with.
Unfortunately, people's true colors come out at times like this. On both sides.
I thought the OP would like comment on his sources today.
