Sources out of Big Blue Land are reporting that Gillispie has been fired, done deal. See this site for headline, log in required for more information.
Speculation out of Kentucky has been that Travis Ford should come home to revitalize the Wildcat program. He turned Oklahoma State into a NCAA 1st round winning team that gave Pitt all it could handle in the 2d round last Sunday. Another site says to hire Ford (or Pelfrey) would be malpractice. Gillispie was 40-27 in two years at UK. That just doesn't get in done in Lexington. Big Blue Nation unrealistically expects errr demands to compete for the Final 4 every year. Tubby's exit was because he couldn't quite meet those expectations of the rabid fans. All he did was take Minnesota to the Tourney. That also has to grate on the Wildcat Faithful. The fact that The Ville is a Final 4 contender and Rick Pitino is coaching them adds additional and intense pressure for any coach at UK.
