This Sr. Lady/Badlander grew up a Ky fan, listened to every Ky Bball game on transistor radio w/parents, went to UK w/Dan Issel & during Ropp/Joe Hall, live din CO when issel was there, back to KY for end of Tubby -> Cal years as season ticket holder & travel to tourney games. Initial reaction from family & friends to UK's new hire of Mark Pope = Terrible! BUT, yesterday at Introductory Press Conference (sold out Rupp Arena; turned many away) may have turned those skeptical fans. Mark Pope (Rhodes Scholar, dropped out of Med School after 3 year to pursue his dream-coaching) Your ThoughtS??
