I see a perfect storm in the making with Kentucky firing Billy Gillispie and Georgia firing Dennis Felton!  Why not bring Billy Gillispie to Athens to coach the the Georgia Bulldogs?

Georgia is in desperate need of a coach that has national recognition and who can leverage that "fame" in recruiting the top players in the state of Georgia and throughout the country.

Billy Gillispie's "great luck he's always had" (as he quoted in his press conference yesterday) can pay off big time if he came to Georgia because Damon Evans, Georgia's athletic director, is ready to put "whatever resources necessary" into bringing a top level coach to the Georgia basketball program.

A perfect storm?

I believe so!

Is it something that will be considered by Damon Evans?

We'll just have to see!
