Big-spending Mitch Barnhart

I urge University of Kentucky Athletics Director Mitch Barnhart to run for Congress.

He and the nattering nabobs on Capitol Hill obviously share a philosophy of solving problems by throwing more money at them.

It appears that fired offensive coordinator Shannon Dawson was not only underappreciated but underpaid, since it takes two coaches at twice his salary to replace him.

I hope the two new highly paid co-offensive coordinators will be able to improve on their recent bowl performance in which they lit up the scoreboard for seven points against perennial juggernaut San Diego State.
