Me this morning when I realized the clocks moved forward an hour…

 

In case you’re wanting to relive the Kentucky-Florida game in written form, Gary Graves of the Associated Press wrote an excellent review of yesterday’s match-up. His full-length story contains post-game quotes from Calipari and company, alongside bigger picture implications for both the Cats and Gators.

It wouldn’t be a week in Kentucky news without mention of DeMarcus Cousins and his antics on and off the floor. This week’s discussion isn’t centered around technical fouls or suspensions, no, this week we’re tracking minutes played in the fourth quarter. Recently, Cousins hasn’t been featured late in Kings games due to coaching decisions, naturally this led to friction between he and his coach. NBA.com’s Scott Howard-Cooper has the full story.

In news that was lost in the shuffle due to Kentucky’s massive victory over Florida; the Wildcat Baseball squad dropped their second game of the season to Michigan State, 6-1. While most were probably watching the basketball game, David Mulloy of KSR College was busy viewing and reviewing the Bat Cats’ performance.  Kentucky takes on Michigan State again today at Cliff Hagan Stadium (1 pm).

If you haven’t heard by now, Pat Forde was trollin’ hard last night. In his column, when discussing Kentucky’s senior day, Forde called Twany Beckham a “perma-sub who played 17-minutes all season” and named Julius Mays to be a “rental player on a one-year layover at Kentucky.” If you want to read Forde’s latest gem, you can find it here. Troll on Pat, troll on.

Since we’ve already stirred the pot with a Pat Forde classic, why not add one more to rustle some feathers.  After yesterday’s victory over Florida, Sam Eifling of Deadspin wrote a piece insinuating that John Calipari can only win with five-star talent. Josh Harrellson disagrees with that statement and says you can find the article here.

    “between HIM and his coach”

    How do I get that energy consuming monkey antimation off my screen??

    No doubt that Forde has always worshipped at the Pitino altar, even when Rick was at UK. That allegiance has side tracked his career quite a bit. Having said that, this article is fairly accurate. The snarky comment about a rent-a-player is a typical Forde swipe at Cal. Rick wouldn’t tolerate Pat making such a low brow comment about the several short timers who have appeared throughout Pitinos career. Rick controls Fordes mute button.

    Did anyone see trey lyles with his UK hoddie on at the game!!!!

    Don’t worry about being late bro! No one reads your posts anyway….

    Why find articles by Forde? He has gone from the big time(on camera at ESPN)to “where do I look for Forde” status all on his own. His rantings about Calipari and UK have made what he has to say look like a child’s temper tantrums. You do not need to keep finding him for people. Why keep interrupting his journey into oblivion?

    I agree, Forde is an idiot with absolutely no sense about college basketball! He pretty much said that Cal can’t win a championship if his team doesn’t play well. Doesn’t that apply to every team regardless of how young/old they are?

  8. Rae

    I’m not going to give him clicks, but is it safe to assume he doesn’t mention Twany’s bad back?

    For de writes the truth. What’s the issue? For once I’d like this site to step back and see for what is, rather than be shaded by pre-conceived anti/bias. In other words, grow the eff up.

    Forde writes a selective truth. His article has a really snarky tone, but this is probably as opportune time as he’ll get for a game of contrasts between UK-UL. Any other time across the pages of history would just be too embarrassing.

    p.s. there is very little place for objectivity on a fan site like this. It would completely, absolutely defeat the purpose – that’s what national sites are for. You’re the one being unrealistic.

  12. Nick Saban

    I should stop recruiting 5-star players. Its making my coaching ability look bad since I’m not winning with sub-par talent.

  13. Command of language

    “Rustle some feathers”?? What next, we’re gonna steal a cattle farmer’s herd by ruffling some cows?
