Miracle bullPosted Image?! We've gone to the Final Four three out of the last four years and were a last second shot away from it being four out of the last five.  I believe you're looking more for words like trend, habit, tradition, etc.

dude ive been very respectful of the tucky program, review my post history. if youre going to be a revisionist, is it also a trend to want to fire your coach half way through a championship game season? this year was a miracle for you guys and if you try to revise it youre just being a homer.

Yep. http://espn.go.com/b...nt-but-deserves , http://sports.yahoo....-203053186.html .

Seems like some folks/fans are downplaying their role in the events today; but they must care and must feel like the ugly duckling that didn't get asked to the prom because there are about a half dozen or so threads on Volnation talking about it.

There's a world of difference between criticism and what Cuonzo endured.

I don't think anybody left solely because of a petition, although even that's overboard.

It's all the other things that were pretty shocking, like the man's wife getting accosted in public and apparently finding confederate flags in his yard.

That kind of stuff is borderline criminal and will make a man fear for his safety and that of his family.

The guy wasn't a great coach for most of the regular season; but it frequently takes at least 3 years for a new coach to change everything around and make a program his... it looked to me like he finally accomplished that by the time the tourney rolled around.

And, despite the treatment from fans, he still kicked some behind in the tourney; he had every right to throw in the towel after the treatment he'd received, but he didn't do that.

UT fans are entitled to think they deserve better coaching; but it seems like a significant portion of them (14,000 attend games, but over 30,000 signed the petition) don't realize that the way they're going about it is akin to shooting oneself in the foot.

Honestly, what top coach is going to consider UT after watching how Cuonzo was just treated? If UT does manage to attract one, they're likely going to have to spend more money than they otherwise would have because of that fan treatment, and definitely more than that pittance they were paying Martin... $1.3m isn't much for a major university that wants to consider itself one of the big boys.

i can actually answer this one with a fraction of familiarity. we ran off houston nutt by flying airplanes over the stadium pulling banners demanding him be fired, getting his phone logs via F.O.I. and wearing all black to ballgames. After he did finally get the can, guess who we replace him with? The only coach worth a Posted Image that would have actually considered us..... bobby Posted Imageing petrino. if you think coaches dont notice how the exiting coach before their offer was treated, think again.

tenn fans ran him off, so he said fine ill go. i just dont understand not wanting a coach that just took you to the sweet 16. tucky got beat in the 1st round of the nit last year and pulled some miracle bullPosted Image this year. you stick with a decent coach and he will lead you to good things.

Making fun of them is never petty. It's Kentucky.

They made it all the way and lost after Posted Image talking about all the Posted Image talking everyone else did about this group of mercenaries (maybe not this group of kentucky fans on this site, idk I'm still hungover from saturday so I havent spent much time reading)

ive always felt the tucky fans on this site were pretty cool.
