Shanahan emerges as top candidate for UK job
Denver Broncos volunteer quarterback coach tours Lexington, but denies being offered football position
Mike Shanahan. volunteer quarterback coach of the Denver Broncos since being fired as head coach of the Los Angeles Raiders four games into the current season, was back in Denver this week after a whirlwind visit to Lexington, where he emerged as perhaps "the" top candidate for the University of Kentucky head football coaching position.
Shanahan, 37, arrived in town Friday night, met with UK officials Saturday morning, toured the Nutter Training Center and the City of Lexington, and then departed that afternoon for Denver, where the Broncos entertained the New York Giants on Sunday.
"It was a good visit," Shanahan said. "I got a chance to look at the facilities and for them to talk to me. It was an interesting day, but no offer has been made...It was a good visit and I'm glad I came."
The Denver Post said Shanahan was on the verge of accepting a five-year contract at a total package of about $600,000 to coach the Wildcats. However, UK athletic director CM. Newton said a contract was discussed with Shanahan, but only in "preliminary" terms so that Shanahan '"understands the job."
"But there has been no contract tendered
"It was a good visit. I got a chance to look at the facilities and for them to talk to me. It was an interesting day, but no offer has been made...It was a good visit and I'm glad I came."

or discussed," said Newton, who also refused to say if he planned to bring in other candidates.
A native of Oak Park, III., Shanahan attended Eastern Illinois University. He was an assistant coach at Oklahoma (1975-76), Northern Arizona (1977), Eastern Illinois (1978), Minnesota (1979) and Florida (offensive coordinator1984-87). He was offensive coordinator at Denver four years (1984-87). working with quarterback John Elway and Bronco teams that were 49-20-1 and participated in two Super Bowls.
He had a record of 7-9 as head coach of
Mike Shanahan, considered the top candidate for UK's vacant coaching position. Shanahan is currently QB coach for the Denver Broncos.
the Raiders last year. After a 1-3 start this season, he was replaced by former Raider offensive tackle Art Schell. He has one year remaining on a three-year contract with the Raiders, calling for an estimated $325,000 a year.
?The newest fad among the faithful attending Wildcat games in Rupp Arena is to remain seated or find a good seat in the lower arena and listen to the Kentucky Radio Network's post-game activities being piped over the arena P.A. system.
After the usual rundown of statistics, star-player interview, etc., a dramatic moment ar-v rives when Cawood "Voice of the Wildcats" Ledford emerges from the corner across the floor to the right and is greeted with applause.
Just before Cawood came out after the Tennessee Tech game, C. M. Newton crossed and ascended the arena steps to a good round of applause from those eager fans who apparently were showing their appreciation of the fine job he did in luring Pitino to Kentucky.
Then the applause and cheers became louder as Pitino emerged from the corner across to the right and, escorted by Van "Committee of 101" Florence, walked in back of the goal, stopped before turning the corner to say hello to an aging Happy Chandler, and then waved as he walked downcourt to where two chairs, one occupied by Ledford, awaited.
The network brass made a wise move in having the table placed inside the playing area and seating Cawood and Rick facing the crowd on that side of the floor.
As the interview began, the crowd became very attentive, interrupting the silence on several occasions to applaud a remark or observation by the coach.
The fans seated on both sides of the arena numbered about 300 after the Mississippi State game on Monday and had increased about two-fold when UK played Tech two nights later. As the word spreads, look for 1.000 or more to remain for the post-game entertainment during next weekend's UKIT.
? UK's associate AD/marketing Gene DeFilippo, upon hearing UK's Doug Bruce announce Monday night that souvenir programs for the season opener against Ohio U. Pitino first game as UK coach, could be purchased by mail through Host Communications:
"That's an excellent idea. I'm sorry to say it wasn't mine. Credit that to Jim Host."
?A Tennessee Tech official, like everyone else familiar with the recent troubles at UK,
upon seeing the 23,000-plus fans on hand for the UK-Tech game said, "I can't believe it."
?A person telephoning Cawood Ledford on the Tech pre-game call-in show: "Hello, Mom."
? Ledford on the same show: "You know, Adolph Rupp's teams reminded me of a Swiss watch. This team reminds me of a street gang."
?When Mississippi State basketball coach Richard Williams, asked why he did not try to recruit Carlos Toomer, an unheralded UK signee from Corinth, Miss., replied, "I'll be honest, I wouldn't know him if he were standing right here. I don't know Carlos Toomer, just to be honest."
(Side note: During a luncheon earlier in the week, Wildcat coach Rick Pitino invited those doubters present to come by his office and view a film of Toomer in action. Two of those media types who saw the clip were impressed with the player, who is a projected point guard for the Cats).
? Richie Farmer's improved play is reflected in many ways, but especially in what Pitino calls "one-on-one plays, moving north and south, and attacking the basket."
Pitino credited Farmer's improvement in that area to extra individual practices with assistant coach Billy Donovan, who was a star guard on Pitino's "Final Four" team at Providence.
"Richie's getting better and coming on," Pitino said. He realizes, 'Now, I can do that'."
Farmer also is several pounds lighter, beginning with the top of his head. When Farmer appeared as the featured player on Pitino's show the day after the IU game, host Rob Bromley got the two talking about the difference in accents between the player from Manchester, Ky., and the coach from the sidewalks of New York.
After some good-natured kidding, which included Farmer's subdued hair style, Pitino
said his guest probably planned to be a movie star.
?When the Kentucky Wildcats opened their SEC schedule against Mississippi State two days after the IU game, Wildcat fans got their first taste of two experimental rules being implemented in the Southeastern Conference this season.
Those changes for conference ballgames are:
Players will fou! out on the sixth foul rather than the customary fifth.
Three free throws will be awarded to a player who is fouled while in the act of shooting a three-point attempt.
Both Pitino and Williams had expected the six-foul rule to work in their favor, since both teams have a lack of depth.
The only player to draw as many as five fouls was Mississippi State's junior guard Doug Hartsfield, who fouled Richie Farmer with :02 remaining in the game. Hartsfield led Tiger scoring with 24 points. There were no fouls called on three-point attempts.
?Jamal Mashburn, 6-foot-8 forward from Bronx, N. Y., who has committed to play basketball for the Wildcats, reportedly has scored high enough on his college entrance exam to meet NCAA academic requirements for freshman eligibility.
David McCollin, Mashburn's coach on the New York City Gauchos team, said the future Wildcat met the NCAA minimum score of 700 when he took the Scholastic Aptitude Test in October.
McCollin added that Mashburn, who averaged 22 points and 8.5 rebounds as a junior at Cardinal Hayes High School, won't have any problem meeting the minimum 2.0 grade-point average required for the core curriculum.
?Chris Harrison, a 6-3 junior guard who has already verbally committed to Rick Pitino's program, scored 30 points as Tollesboro scored an easy, 89-59, win at home over Richmond Model.
?After Eric Manuel scored 28 points to lead Hiwassee over Sue Bennett, a Cats' Pause observer reported that the former Kentucky Wildcat guard "looked heavier, and seemed to stand around a lot." f77ie (oats' (jawie
Coaches, like elephants, have unparalleled memory
Decades of frustration were Hooded away in Lawrence, Kan.. Saturday as 15,000-plus Kansas basketball fans Hushed out the Kentucky Wildcats to a embarrassing 150-95 victory that had KU coach Roy Williams running up the numbers until the game's final three minutes.
Going into the contest Kansas had won only two of 18 previous meetings with the Wildcats and this was probably the last chance KU will have in a long, long time to get the 'Cats in their Jayhawk den and turn such a trick.
At least that's what some observers believe, and you couldn't blame UK coach Rick Pitino if he never sets foot in Lawrence again.
Oh, don't get the wrong message; neither Kentucky nor Pitino are so arrogant or big they cannot accept a defeat, even a lopsided one (because there will be others this season). But the manner in which Williams continued to drill the Wildcats makes one wonder why UK officials ever scheduled the game in the first place.
This has to be a nagging question for everyone. It certainly had Pitino burning as he told Kentucky fans tuning in his post-game radio show that this year's scheduling is something he certainly plans to do something about in the future.
And he just wasn't talking about four games in eight days or the current 10-day lay-off.
Everyone in the free world realized this would be the least-talented Kentucky basketball team in modern history. So why in the world would anyone want to stick this group of youngsters (who chose to be loyal and remain during the hard times rather than leave for schools which weren't on probation) with two perennial Top 20 programs in addition to an already committed rugged schedule?
For instance, Kentucky already has a rugged 18-gamc schedule in the Southeastern Conference, plus prior commitments to traditional games with a trio of Top 20 teamsLouisville, Indiana and Notre Dame.
So what happens?
How about adding Kansas and North Carolina as newcomers for good measure? Those two additions would be welcome later on. when some much-needed additional talent arrives. But this year?
Yes, there could be an argument of perhaps those clubs not wanting to play Kentucky once the 'Cats are loaded. That could be true for Carolina, but Kansas has difficulty getting any "name" school outside its conference to visit Lawrence.
It could be argued to compromise, such as playing the first game either next year after Pitino has one recruiting class but while UK is still on probation. But playing this first season is obviously more unfair to UK than it would be unfair to Kansas or Carolina to wait and play when UK is loaded. Plus, Kentucky has done a pretty good job over the years without having either team on the schedule.
Fact is, it was totally wrong and a slap
in the face of both the players and fans to force this team to take on such added power at this time. And you can imagine how embarrassed Pitino is.
Both Kansas and Carolina were in-tersectional rivals for UK at one time or another in the past, but you might read Dean Smith's name all over the new scheduling.
Smith, who happens to be a close personal friend with UK athletics director C.M. Newton, certainly could have made up some early ground on UK's all-time victory lead considering the KU farce Saturday.
At one point a few weeks ago, there was the possibility that the Tar Heels could grab the top spot away from UK when, of all times, the two collide later this month in Louisville. That won't happen now, with Carolina trailing by five games and playing only DePaul and Kansas State before meeting UK Dec. 27 in Louisville.
Given North Carolina's current, but disappointing 4-4 mark, you can still see Kentucky as nothing but easy prey for the Tar Heels in that game.
First of all, there has never been any lost love between Kentucky and North Carolina. The bitterness between the two' schools is hotter than most cold wars considering they haven't met since 1977 in that controversial NCAA East Regional championship game at College Park, Md.
North Carolina, argubly the nation's top program over the past 15 years, still yearns for the one, big record that keeps it from becoming the country's premier program without question. And that is the record of most number of basketball victories by a school.
Kentucky has owned that mark for decades. Carolina has been slowly creeping up, particularly in the early and mid-eighties when Carolina regularly played a light non-conference schedule and more games thanks to the ACC Tournament, than UK.
Kentucky seemed to stem the tide when Eddie Sutton arrived and produced a 32-4 mark. But UK dropped to 18 victories the next season, then went 25-5 in 1987-88 before finishing 13-19 last season, the Wildcats' first losing campaign in 62 years.
While this was going on. Carolina rolled along. Oh, they played some big-name schools, but with only 14 conference games in the ACC, the Tar Heels had numerous opportunities to pile up the victories. And this season began with Carolina just six short of UK.
Which is why Dec. 27 becomes such and important date for fans of both schools. A month ago, no one would dream of UK being 3-2 at this mark. Even a 2-3 mark would have been accepted by most fans. Just as surprising in the other direction is Carolina' 4-4 mark. Most figured the Tar Heels would be no worse than 6-2.
Had such taken place, Carolina would be only two victories shy of UK at this
moment. Each has two games before the historic showdown. There will be no new leader come the morning of Dec. 28. But scheduling certainly made it a possibility going into the season.
The return of Carolina to the schedule, even given the circumstances, was not nearly as shocking as the reappearance of the Jayhawks .
Former UK coach Eddie Sutton made the first move to eliminate Kansas even though UK owned a-16-1 edge. Prior to his first and only trip to Lawrence as the UK boss, Sutton said he wanted to play more intersectional games in big cities, like New York, Chicago and perhaps Los Angeles. He didn't achieve some of those goals, but he did schedule the likes of Hawaii and Syracuse and was on the verge of playing DePaul before his exit.
His argument on not playing Kansas was that the game offered UK little in the form of assisting its recruiting program. Seldom, if ever, would UK be recruiting kids that far in the midwest and coaches usually want to play non-conference games either for national television or where they might someday recruit.
And as exciting as most of the UK-KU games have been, only one was nationally televised and that was back in 1981 when Kentucky won in an ESPN game. For some reason, a UK-KU game just hasn't excited the network people. So why Kansas again?
There is the tradition, no doubt about it. Kansas ranks right up there with Kentucky and North Carolina in victories. But save Larry Brown's (another ex-Tar Heel) short, successful, but controversial NCAA championship era, KU had been in a downhill trend.
But Kansas, which never wanted to drop the series, kept wanting to reinstate the games. Perhaps it was Sutton's departure that brought the series back. Perhaps it was the arrival of Newton and his desire to bring back a series which had been so immensely successful from UK's viewpoint on the court.
And perhaps it was Roy Williams' arrival in Kansas a year ago, coupled with Sutton's departure this spring and coinciding with Newton's arrival and the friendship that exists between Newton and Dean Smith.
The Smith connection again pops up when you consider that Williams was one of Smith's top assistants for years at Chapel Hill. In the name of fairness, the decision to play Kansas this year probably had nothing to do with Smith, but it sure makes good food for the hoop junkies, doesn't it?
Perhaps the move to add the Dean Smith-related powers to the schedule was strictly a positive move to have one of. if not, the nation's greatest playing schedules.
This scenario could be traced back to last spring's abbreviated basketball banquet when newly hired UK athletics director C. M. Newton promised the players he would create a great schedule
for those who remained.
Little did the players realize it would produce a modern, record-setting UK loss this winter that will probably never be duplicated again. Actually, one should omit the word "probably" but then, never is forever. On the other hand, let's be honest and go ahead and say this is a record that will live forever.
Of course it didn't have to be this way. Most coaches or schools would have called the dogs off at say 35 or 40. But not Roy Williams, not Dean Smith's chosen dis.iple At the very least, he could have put his three unused scrubs in long before the final 3:31 of the game and KU clinging to a "narrow" 139-90 lead. With 14:00 left in the game, KU led by 30 (100-70) and with 8:53 left, KU led by 38 (117-79). At the 6:17 the margin was 41 (124-83) and still no sign of any scrubs other than his regular eight players.
The margin went to 49 (139-90) with 5:03 left and still no sign of the scrubs. Then, finally at the appointed time of 3:31. Roy. the missionary, decreed that enough wound had been inflicted on the Wildcats. The Kansas scrubs finally entered the game.
You gotta be kiddin'!
Will Pitino and his young non-seniors remember this one?
"That's a dumb question," to borrow one of Pitino's best phrases you'll later read below.
? ? ?
After the game.
Pitino was quick to point out he had nothing to do with the schedule, and he didn't mince words about his displeasure with the current setup.
In fact, when questioned about the scheduling of Kansas shortly after the 55-point loss in Lawrence, Pitino bristled, "that's a dumb question. You know, I don't think I'm thinking about that right now."
But you still wondered.
"...let me see, yeah, I'll go back and work on my schedule," he said.
But by the time he arrived for his post-game radio show with Cawood Ledford, his temper, though collected and cool, still took a back seat to his concern about the scheduling. He made no attempt to dodge the still hot topic of scheduling.
There, he again emphasized his disappointment with the schedule and promised a change in the future. He offered no specifics, but one easily got the message.
If the series is not continued after next year (and our guess is, it won't be), don't place all the blame on this one game. The humiliating score added the insult, but the groundwork had been made weeks ago.
Pitino had privately told people around the UK program several weeks ago he doesn't see the Kansas series fulfilling

'Pitino Ball' bounces 'Dogs
Three-point shots, ball-hawking defense give UK 102-97 win; 'Cats find themselves No. 1 in SEC
by TCP associate editor Nick Nicholas
Never will there be a shortage of three-point tries under Kentucky coach Rick Pitino. Even Johnathon Davis, a not-ready-for-perimeter player, has permission from his hardwood guardian to go outsid^ and play with Derrick, Sean, Richie and the rest of the Wildcat gang.
Against first SEC foe M ississippi State on Monday (Dec. 4), eight 'Cats tried it...and Pitino liked it.
Kentucky was successful on 13 of an SEC record 35 attempted treys (to start last season it took UK six games to total 43 attempts), defeating the Bulldogs 102-97 at Rupp Arena. Thus, UK stood alone atop the SEC standings with a 1-0 mark.
"I told our guys that the only thing I would be upset with was if we stopped taking the three," Pitino, watching his team win its second game in three outings, said. "Tonight we had movement, we were working inside-and-out penetration...1 wanted them to keep shooting until they started making them."
Not once did Kentucky shy away. Pitino himself questioned only five trifectas, including a Davis airball.
UK hit on a productive 37.1 percent from long range, including five on-target bombs by senior Derrick Miller. It was Nfiller'stwo" three-pointers early in the second half, one from each wing, that pushed the lead to 15, 60^15. UK's advantage peaked at 21 (71-50) thanks to a precision pass from Deron Feldhaus to an open Jeff Brassow underneath.
These Bulldogs, losers for the first time this season, didn't tuck their tail between their legs.
On the short end of a 79-62 count, Richard Williams' club climbed within striking distance with the help of a 29-16 run. So, when Greg Carter connected on a three-pointer with 40 seconds left, the visitors trailed by only four (95-91).
A free throw by John Pelphrey followed by a Pelphrey-Sean Woods' theft converted into a slam by Feldhaus eased 23,132 fast-beating hearts.
You can also add one particular New Yorker to that count.
"I coached a hundred games a season for two years and there's no way," Pitino said, pausing a moment as if to catch his breath, "...I would like to be buried in Manhattan. If you're going to wake me please wake me there and bury me there. I'm never going to make it through this season with this group of guys. Oh boy, they're an exciting group and I have no idea what they are going to do next.
"But they work as hard as I've ever had a group work. They just keep working and working, coming after you and working and working, deflecting and running. I'm really, really proud of them. They're a fun group to coach, but they're absolutely crazy."
Miller led four Wildcat scorers in double figures, tallying 21 points. Junior Reggie Hanson had 19 points and a team-high 10 rebounds. Next was Sean Woods with a UK career-high 18 point performance followed by a workhorse effort39 minutesfrom Feldhaus with 13 points and seven boards.
State, trying to keep up in this run-and-gun affair, was paced by guard Doug Hartsfield and All-SEC forward Cameron Burns with
 Walkon Nehemiah Braddy checked in for seven minutes and tallied seven points, including a short jumper ignited by an elusive fake inside.
 Jeff Brassow came off the bench to add nine points and eight rebounds.
 MSU shot a red-hot 68.6 percent from the field (24 of 35) in the second half.
 Rick said it. Coach Rick Pitino about if he is more pleased than ever to be in Lexington: "Whether we win a game or not, I made my decision and I'll never look back on leaving New York. That just tells you how much I love Kentucky. I think this is a very special place, I absolutely love it. If you'd get some restaurants I'd be in Utopia."
24 and 22 points, respectively. Also in double figures for the 3-1 Bulldogs were Carter (19 points and a game-high 11 boards) and Tony Watts (18 points), son of former NBA standout guard Slick Watts.
"I'm not sure that these were the two best teams in the conference," Williams said, "but I am sure that no two teams will play harder against each other. Kentucky displayed as much effort as I have ever seen."
Outscored by seven three-point goals (Factor I), Mississippi State can point to several other areas sending it to its first loss:
^Factor II. Turnovers...too many committed by MSU and not enough by UK.
MSU, troubled by the "Cats' press, was suiltv of 22 turnovers. Pitino's racehorse
offense turned the ball over only 13 times.
"We guarded the ball poorly, and were unable to control Woods," Williams said. "Our press in three games has been, for guys that have only been with it a month, magnificent," Pitino praised. "The changing of the presses has been magnificent."
In its game against Indiana, UK forced the Hoosiers into 25 mistakes while committing 15. Continued improvement in all phases has Pitino smiling. But it's the outmanned club's defensive pressure that he's most proud of.
Factor III comes from a position that wasn't expected to blossom so soon.
^Outstanding play from the point. Pitino praised the steller and improved play (Continued on page 26)
