Want Gary gone?

Wow, the bloom is off Billy Gillispie at Kentucky. After last night's loss at home to a hapless Georgia team Wildcat nation is out with torches and pitchforks. I think it is too early to pronounce Gillispie DOA and to some extent there is karma involved here the way Kentucky turned on Tubby Smith. This should be a cautionary tale for Maryland fans who think it will be simple to hire a coach who will waltz into Maryland and have this program back in the Final Four.

In other news DB Richard Taylor was awarded another year of eligibility by the NCAA. Taylor was injured in the California game and missed the rest of the season. He missed all of 2007 after injuring his knee that spring. Who knows how effective Taylor will be after missing all that time but with a somewhat shaky secondary going into the fall Maryland can use all the help it can get.
