'Move quickly...but don't hurry'
Addressing the media last week, new UK athletic director CM. Newton used that basketball phrase to describe the process of finding a basketball coach to succeed Eddie Sutton. Newton said he wants to find a replacement as soon as possible, but he wants to do a thorough job.

UK takes first step toward finding new basketball coach as Roselle announces screening committee
TCP staff report
Three days after head basketball coach Eddie Sutton resigned under pressure, University of Kentucky president David Roselle took the first step toward filling the vacant position when he announced an eight-member committee had been formed to screen prospective candidates.
The committee, headed by Lexington businessman William Sturgill, will provide athletics director CM. Newton with recommendations on a new coach, Roselle said March 22. Newton will make the final recommendation to the UK athletics board, which Roselle chairs.
Other members of the screening commit-
tee are:

Dykes third UK basketball coach to resign
by TCP columnist Larry Vaught
All the controversy around the University of Kentucky basketball program the last year only strengthened Jimmy Dykes' desire to be a Division I head coach.
"When you go through tough times you find out what something means," said Dykes, who turned in his resignation as a UK assistant coach Friday, March 24. "If coaching wasn't important, this would be the time to step out.
"Now, though, I know this is what I want to do. I've learned a lot of things guys my age have not had the opportunity to find out. There are easier ways to find out if you love coaching than what we went through but I know coaching is what I want to do."
The 27-year-old Dykes joined Eddie Sutton's staff at UK two seasons ago. He also played for Sutton, who resigned last Sunday under pressure, at Arkansas.
Dykes said he is confident he'll have a chance to coach again and that his image has not been tarnished by the NCAA probe at Kentucky. He said he was not mentioned in any of the 18 allegations of wrongdoing and was never even interviewed by NCAA officials.
"I've been in contact with several schools," said Dykes, who plans to make more inquiries

at the Final Four in Seattle, Wash., this week. "I have a peacefulness and calmness about me now because I believe there is a plan for me.
"I have to do what is in the best interests of Jimmy Dykes. I'm still confident I can reach my goal of being a Division 1 head coach. I'm not viewing this as a setback. I'm looking at it as a valuable lesson.
"I've learned a lot about myself here. I've learned how to handle adversity and not having 20-win seasons. I've learn to deal with adversity off the court. I've grown tremen-(Continued on page 18)
Chronic neck injuries end Vic Adams' career
From UK sports info and TCP reports
University of Kentucky defensive guard Vic Adams will forego the 1989 football season because of chronic neck problems, head coach Jerry Claiborne announced.
Adams, a 6-foot-l, 280-pound senior-to-be from Middlesboro, decided to pass up his last season of eligibility after being diagnosed with a nerve impairment (brachial plexus stretch syndrome) of the neck. This condition increased the risk of permanent injury, prompting Adams to end his football career.
"Shocked" was how assistant coach Bill Glaser felt after learning the news. However, he knew Adams had been suffering from what is commonly referred to as "burners."
"After the Tennessee game last year I told my wife that I didn't know if Vic would be back," said Glaser "He was having trouble turning his head.
"It's better to find out about it now."
Known as one of team's true leaders, Adams finished the 1988 campaign, his third consecutive year as a starter at right defensive (Continued on page 18) 0ay& 3
CM. Newton: 'Move quickly, but don't hurry'
?As the NCAA Final Four winds down this weekend, the University of Kentucky begins a search for a new head basketball coach and, at the same time, awaits its day in court before the NCAA Infractions Committee late next month.
Normally, this time of the year is highlighted with anticipation on the April hoop signing period with an eye toward the new crop of around-the-corner seniors.
New UK athletics director CM. Newton says he will put in some telephone calls to potential UK recruits, but he concedes it may be early May before the university has a new coach signed and on campus.
Last week Newton said he liked to use an old basketball term when discussing how long it would take to hire a new coach. "Move quickly, but don't hurry," said Newton of his mission to hire a new coach.
Those comments came after UK president David Roselle announced an eight-member screening committee to come up with candidates from which Newton could
pick and recommend to the university.
Heading that committee is William B. Sturgill, a long-time Lexington businessman and a former basketball Wildcat himself.
Also on the committee are Robert Lawson, a UK law professor; Dick Parsons, a UK fund raiser who formerly was an assistant UK coach as well as a former player; Terry Mobely, a former Wildcat and currently associate vice president for alumni and development; S.T. Roach, a former central Kentucky educator and ex-high school coach; Bobby Watson, a former UK basketball Wildcat; Charles Wethington Jr., chancellor of the UK Community College system and a member of the UK Athletics Association board of directors, and Peggy Meszaros, dean of the UK College of Home Economics and a member of the athletics association board of directors.
It is a committee that sports-minded UK fans couldn't have done a better job picking if they had chosen the committee members by popular vote themselves.
The group has the intrigity of an excellent group of educators with the experience to expertly select the right person to head the basketball program into the 1990s.
There were some who feared Dr. Roselle might eliminiate basketball-oriented people from the committee. He obviously didn't. It's another sign that Dr. Roselle has his sights set squarely on running not only a clean program, but one which can compete with the very best in the nation.
Now, hopefully, fans and the public will quietly sit back and allow this blue-ribbon panel the necessary time and patience to come up with the right selection to replace Eddie Sutton.
What the University of Kentucky doesn't need right now is to be pressured into making a hurried decision like it did
New UK athletics director C. M. Newton said last week that he wants to find a basketball coach as quickly as possible, but he won't hurry.
back in 1985.
The committee should, and we believe most assurdly will, conduct extensive
background checks on all the candidates so there will be no surprises down the road.
No timetable is so important that another couple weeks or so couldn't stand if it means getting the right person. For Newton to hire a coach under any other conditions would shock us.
? ? ?
?NEWTON MET WITH the local media last week during the NCAA Southeast Regional tournament and said he had interviewed no one for the job at that time.
Newton said three or four coaches came to mind when he thinks about the UK job, but that he had not contacted any of them at the time.
"They're people who are very successful and very ingrained in their programs," said Newton. "And I'm not sure they'd be interested (in UK)."
Newton said it is important for the new UK coach to want to coach at UK and for him to be fully aware of the position he is about to embark upon.
At the same time, said Newton, he is very excited about his new role at athletics director at UK and can't wait to get started. He had previously planned an overseas trip after the Final Four, but he has since cancelled it and will be back in Lexington early next week.
Newton will be attending the NCAA Final Four festivites this week in Seattle and most likely will chat with more than a coach or two at the annual National Association of Basketball Coaches (NABC) convention.
? ? ?
Southeast Regional at Rupp Arena last weekend, there had to be heartbreak for many Kentucky fans as they watched Terry Mills snipe down the nets after the championship game. Mills was recruited hot and heavy by
coach Joe B. Hall's staff for several years before his retirement in 1985. In fact, Mills had attended UK's summer camp at least four years in the '80s and most recruiting experts had Mills locked up in a Big Blue uniform.
Mills hit it off early with Hall and made no secret of his desires to play for Hall. Mills often attended UK home games with his high school coach.
It was near the end of Mills' junior year when Hall quit in 1985 and Mills' love for UK began to slip.
It was UK associate coach Leonard Hamilton who was in charge of recruiting Mills and it appeared Mills would still attend UK under the Sutton era. But that's before Michigan put on a big push, thanks to the help of a relative (John Long) who began to encourage Mills to stay close to home and play for Michigan.
In the end, Michigan's variety of Big Blue won out. Although UK later signed Reggie Hanson, Rex Chapman and Derrick Miller, Michigan beating out UK for a player considered "in the fold" so long was the first big recruiting loss of the Sutton era, a loss most recruiting experts now believe signaled the beginning of the end.
? ? ?
?AND JUST HOW bad was the Southeastern Conference this past season? Some of you laughed when I suggested the SEC didn't deserve more than three invitations in the NCAA.
Well, the SEC clubs compiled a nifty 0-5 record in the NCAA and that should be evidence enough the SEC was downright bad this season, and I guess that's why UK's 13-19 record was even more depressing. Had it been in a good year like last season or year before last, the record wouldn't be so bad, but this year?
The good news is that the SEC will be better next season and so will the Kentucky Wildcats. I just wish everyone would wait until the NCAA reveals its results before everyone starts talking about how many Wildcats will be leaving Lexington over the summer.
I believe fans will be pleasantly surprised just how few Wildcats will leave when all is said and done.

?THIS IS THE final regular weekly issue of TCP for the season, but we will be publishing a special issue later this month in hopes of having details and full information on the new head basketball coach at UK.
That issue will be published near the end of the month, even if a new coach has not been hired by then. Our regular monthly schedule has one issue each for May. June. July and August before returning to our regular weekly schedule in September.
Throughout the summer, we'll have some features on recruiting and other events affecting the UK sports program you won't want to miss, so be watching for these.

?HITS AND MISSES ... Appearing on a local television show last Sunday, former UK assistant Dwane Casey said his career has been shattered by the UK investigation and admits his coaching career on the college scene could be in jeopardy. Casey, however, continued to insist his innocence in the infamous Emery Worldwide Air Freight package sent by him to the father of UK star Chris Mills. Asked several times if he believed there was a SI ,000 in the package, Casey said he knows he never put any money in the package, but Casey repeatedly sidestepped the direct question ...

Spring football drills are underway at the Shively Complex with the spring football game set for April 22 at Commonwealth Stadium. And when the ball is teed up at 6 p.m. for the annual spring game, one key player will be on the sidelines. Mid-dlesboro native Vic Adams, a senior-to-be who was to be penciled in as the starter at right defensive guard, has decided to hang up his cleats. A mainstay on the UK interior line last season, Adams was often bothered by pinched nerves. So on the recommendation of team physicians, Adams, who has a wife and a young son to consider, ended several months of speculation by officially announced his retirement from the gridiron over the weekend. The 6-foot-l, 280-pounder, a three-year letterman, will still figure into UK's success this season, as he will stay on to help the coaching staff work with the defensive guards.

Roselle and Co. have definitely won biggest battle
Who'll win war for control of UK basketball?
With the recent resignation of Eddie Sutton and his coaching staff, following the departure of athletics director Cliff Hagan in November, the administration of University of Kentucky president Dr. David Roselle

Cats' Pause Columnist
definitely has won the biggest battle in a 30-year struggle for institutional control of the Wildcat basketball program, but the question still remains as to who will win the war.
Often described by people close to the UK athletic scene as an island unto itself, the basketball program, fortified by unparalled success and statewide adoration, has operated at times on the outer edges of university control, a situation that has irked many top UK administrators.
The most notable challenge to such a state of affairs was launched by Dr. John W. Oswald, who came to Lexington from the University of California at Berkeley as UK's sixth president in June, 1963, succeeding Dr. Frank G. Dickey. Dr. Dickey, an athletic-minded former dean of the UK College of Education who held two degrees from the university, had succeeded Dr. Herman Lee Donovan, also very athletic-minded and one of the best friends of legendary UK basketball coach Adolph Rupp.
Despite the involvement of three of UK's NCAA and Olympic championship Fabulous Five squad in the gambling scandals of the early 1950s, which was accompanied by a scorching 63-page condemnation of the UK basketball program by New York Judge Sol Streit, and suspension of the program for one year, Donovan stuck by Rupp.
Judging by correspondence between Rupp and Dickey during the latter's term as UK president, those two men also got along quite well. This was evident in November, 1959, when, as a result of a conversation with Rupp, Dickey officially confirmed the fact that Rupp had the status of a professor of the university faculty with all of the rights and privileges accorded the position, which meant that the basketball coach had the tenure rights accorded to personnel who are paid from regular university funds and also had the same privileges of sick leave, vacation time, and change-of-work arrangements as all other predecessors.
(In February, 1938, after Rupp's seventh season as Wildcat coach, then-UK president Dr. Frank L. McVey had appointed him supervisor of basketball, which gave him the rank of professor in the College of Arts & Sciences and made him a member of the university senate. Rupp had earned his teacher's certificate doing post-graduate work at Columbia University).
Dickey also informed Rupp that he would receive an ample pay raise for the 1959-60 fiscal year, with an additional $3,000 for an unaudited expense allowance for the same period of time. In addition, the Athletics Association was to pay Rupp a bonus sum of five per cent of the gross amount received by the association as its share of the receipts of any national postseason tournament game or games as might be approved by the board.
"It is my personal desire that you be a part of the university and the Athletics Association for many years to come," Dickey wrote. "As I have indicated to you, it will be my recommendation to the board of the Athletics Association that the total of your salary and expense allowance for the 1960-61 year be increased to the sum paid to the head football coach, in order that these posi-
Look for University of Kentucky president phrase "institutional control" as it pertains to
tions may be placed on an equal basis from that point forward.
"I appreciate more than I can tell you the very fine job which you have always done. More than anything else I treasure your friendship and your willingness to work out this situation."
Three years later, after the Wildcats had finished 23-3 and participated in the NCAA Mideast Regional in Iowa City, Iowa, the board authorized that in the event the Wildcat basketball team should go to an NCAA tournament in the future, Rupp would receive one month's salary as a result of that activitiy, which Dickey explained should double the amount that Rupp had received in the past.
Two months later, Rupp expressed his gratitute to Dickey, but voiced bitter disappointment "that in a year that was regarded as one of the finest that the university has enjoyed in basketball, particularly in a year when all of the other sports were disappointing, that I did not receive at least some slight increase in salary."
"It is my understanding," he continued, "that every member of the Department of Athletics, with the exception of myself, has received an increase in salary, from the athletic director down to the maintenance field man. I regret that the athletic director (Bernie Shively) did not see fit to recommend me for an increase in spite of the fact that it was basketball that supplied him with the only black ink that he had available in any of the sports."
In addition to the letter to Dickey, Rupp aired his complaints at the annual preseason basketball press dinner. He received an increase in salary.
When Dickey left UK in the spring of 1964, Rupp wrote: "Thanks a lot for everything. It was a pleasure to work with you while you were here."
Rupp wouldn't be able to say the same about Oswald, a former football guard at Depauw University who professed an interest in athletics, but emphasized that the program should be kept in its proper place in the overall plans of the university.
Oswald also set up future confrontations with Rupp by endorsing a UK decision to integregate its athletic teams, and he let it be known that he expected all coaches to recruit black players.
Dr. David Roselle to put new meaning into the UK basketball and the entire athletics program.
The NCAA at the time was investigating the off-season football training program conducted by head coach Charlie Bradshaw. Less than a year after Oswald arrived on campus, the football program was placed on a one-year probation.
Meanwhile, Oswald succeeded in integrating the UK football team with Nat Northington and Greg Page in 1964, and the track team with Jim Green three years later. Rupp signed his one and only black player, Tom Payne, in 1969, the year that Dr. Otis A. Singletary came from the University of Texas to succeed Oswald as UK president.
The fact that Singletary was a friend and golfing companion of Texas football coach Darryl Royal was cause enough for Rupp to doubt the new president's interest in basketball. However, Singletary became a big booster of UK basketball, as well as football, and he managed to get along with the aging Rupp until Rupp reached the mandatory retirement age of 70.
Wildcat athletics under football coach Fran Curci and Joe B. Hall, Rupp's successor as basketball coach, enjoyed some great moments during Singletary's 18-year reign as UK president, but there also were low spots, including NCAA probation of the football team in 1977 and an investigation of the basketball team seven years later.
A prime example of basketball flaunting UK administrative regulations occurred when voluntary contributions resulted in construction of a new housing facility for the basketball team. Without going through the proper authority, in this case the Committee on Naming University Buildings, some basketball types erected a sign on the front entrance designating the facility as the Joe B. Hall Wildcat Lodge. Sometime in the middle of the night, UK maintenance personnel removed the sign; however, it was returned and today adorns the entrance to the Lodge.
Thus, the kingdom within a kingdom that is Kentucky Basketball won that skirmish, but by all rights should come out on the short end of such incidents in the future as Dr. Roselle puts new meaning into "institutional control" as it pertains to Wildcat basketball and the entire spectrum of UK athletics. /77ie (Date*' &au&&

David Rosellea man sincerely in UK's corner
Looking for next coach to be fair to players
What in the name of Adolph F. Rupp is President David Roselle trying to do, make an Ivy League school out of the University of Kentucky?
WeD, he would be tickled to death for anyone to

mention UK in the same breath as Harvard, Yale and Princeton. That, of course, isn't going to happen in the lifetime of Roselle or during the lives of the next dozen presidents of UK The money isn't there and will never be in this poor state.
But Roselle already has improved the caliber of UKs students and hopes to continue to do so.
So much for academics.
Now for athletics, especially basketball:
I've heard Roselle blasted for not knowning anything about sports, particularly basketball.
WeD, forget that image.
During meetings I have had with him as a representative of the Kentucky High School Athletic Association, I was pleased to learn that not only does he know the name of every coach in every sport at UK, but he also knows many of the athletes. That, frankly, surprised me. But the man does know about his athletic teams and coaches - and he cares.
Some of the basketball Wildcats have told me that he has constantly praised them throughout their trying period and has assured them that their situation would get better. From talking with the players, I got more than a hint that Roselle knew that former coach Eddie Sutton was not fair to some of them. On the night that Sutton resigned, Roselle emphasized that, Number 1, he wanted the new coach to be fair to his basketball players - fair in all ways, including seeing that they earn degrees.
Earlier, Roselle said that the UK program will be born again and will come back stronger than ever and will win another national championship.
How much stronger statement can Roselle make to get the nonbelievers off his back?
PENICK TO UK - State Tournament fans may have seen a future UK guard, Andy Penick of state champion Pleasure Ridge Park. Although he was voted the Sweet Sixteen's Most Valuable Player, Penick seldom was at his best. He can play much better.
Few know it, but Penick's sixth-grade brother, Scott, upstaged him the same day that Andy helped PRP to the state title. Playing for St. Helen's in the City championship game, Scott scored 39 points (right, that's 39) to help his team win the tide.
The Penicks come from good sports stock. Their father Terry played basketball for Ahrens High and their mother Linda was an outstanding softball player. Their uncle, Buddy Pfaadt, was a standout athlete for Male High and a great football player for Eastern Kentucky University. Andy has one more year of high school. His presence will make PRP one of the favorites for next year's state crown, but Fairdale has a lot of talent returning and may be favored in the Sixth Region.
A CLASS ACT - As you probably know, I am no Eddie Sutton fan, but the man went out with class. He could have chosen to be nasty. And he still could choose to write a book critical of UK and Wildcat basketball. But I doubt that he will because it would
