For months now, basketball fans in Kentucky have been wondering how a program with the biggest and best of everything can lose to a Middle Tennessee in the opening round of the NCAA tournament. That's what happened, of course, to the Kentucky Wildcats—Mildcats, some called them—last March. Inevitably, a lot of fingers were pointed at Coach Joe B. Hall. However, even as some disgruntled Kentucky fans passed out bumper stickers that said JOE BE GONE, others were getting ready for a season of retribution.
Walter Cornett, of Glendale, Kentucky, is the owner and operator of Walter's Wildcat World. He founded WildcatWorld.com in 1998 making it one of the oldest Kentucky basketball fan sites in operation today.
