JC do we not have anyone to defend Turner??…agree with early poster that Cal’s mouth and camp not working. They are shooting over60% and killing us on the boards. We till don’t get it. This is ANOTHER embarassment so far and Cal getting outcoached.
I posted this 2 hours ago. Senior leader that carries a The load of an SEC team, against a struggling UK team see also Devan Downey, although I do feel more comfortable at Rupp, the young Cats have proven that to not be a given this year! I look for this one to be extremely tough. Texas A & M will be looking to make a statement of sorts for their first road SEC game against a vulnerable Kentucky team. If Kyle Wiltjer has to knock down a few trey’s and play atleast 10 minutes of defense, Archie Goodwin and Alex Poythress must show up, or Cal could be handed his first SEC home loss..
This team is really disgraceful…Mays should not have been recruited…Goodwin still out of control and has lost confidence in shooting….and Wiltjer..he continues to show he might have been wasted scholly as well. Harrow a non factor so far.
A lot of valid points being made but not sure where all the hate for Cal is coming from? Hell he has .862 winning percentage at UK and we just won a championship with freshman now everyone is moaning about his style and system??? His style and system has not changed, this is just not the type of freshman we’ve had the past couple years. Good news is a bunch of these guys will have to come back and if they do they will be fighting for playing time next year.
Really sick of all the people who don’t cheer in the seats down by the floor. The first half can be blamed as much on the fans as it is on the players. The blue hairs have destroyed the presence of Rupp Arena and need to STAND UP.
Career high for Turner and only at the half…this UK team has no GUTS..wish they would keep the camera off of Poythress…I hate his body language. Cal didn’t get it done last time at halftime so how can we be confident?
We’ll be okay whoever that player is going off won’t be after half. 25 pts is crazy for anybody to get in a half in any kind of league. I did like how Wiltjer was going out to cover a open guy shooting a 3 but stoped himself to block out for the rebound.
25 – Cal did NOT win last year’s championship by relying on freshmen to the same extent that he is relying on freshmen this year – or presumably will be next year.
Last year’s NCAA Title was indeed earned tahnks to the effots of freshmen like Teague, Davis and MKG – but don’t discount the invaluable contributions of returners like Lamb, Jones and Miller. Without those three – or even dare say – just one of those three – UK doesn’t even get to the final four.
Welcome to Cal ball lady and gentlement.
Meanwhile – you UK fans who continue to drink the Kool-aid – can switch over to ESPN to watch Wiggins. It’s a shame UK has fallen to the point where we’re more concerned about high school players than the guys currently on the court.
Everybody wanted to break S. Woods down after the Sandy telethon about his statements about these kids. He was right. They have no passion, they aren’t close like previous Cal teams, and you can tell they aren’t even having fun playing ball. 10-12 losses this year, and we are going to have a scholly issue next year; some of these kids are coming back and aren’t supposed to b here next year.
Some of the guys are using the Hate word, but I am not ready to go there yet but am getting tempted. This team emits a awful lot of odor. Clock is running out on Cal as well..the Kentucky Effect is about to be replaced by the Stoops Effect.
Career high for Turner and only at the half…this UK team has no GUTS..wish they would keep the camera off of Poythress…I hate his body language. Cal didn’t get it done last time at halftime so how can we be confident? Can you immagine what the FB recruits must be thinking in attendance.
For anyone blaming Cal that is crazy. The kids have to wake up and wanna play ball. They played great against Duke and was 17 down to Louisville and made a good comeback, so the team can play when they want to, they need to wake the hell up and play. Plain and simple.
Noel has found what it takes and that is passion. This team has to play with passion to win and Noel has to be that leader. The talent this team is supposed to have should not struggle against a team like this
50, I agree 100% but would really expect kids like WCS to go pro this year? Harrow is in his 3rd year in college and Wiljter was a McDonald all American and, 4 year player and everyone hates him now but he is the kind of kid we need. I guess my point is more often than not with Cal we are going to get the best of the best recruits but you are correct, we need a couple guys that are 2 to 4 year players. I agree, Tubby was a great x and o coach but I think UK wore him out, he was tired when he left. Most importantly, what is the bourbon of choice tonight?
Same old Poythress…give a couple of productive mins. and many more unproductive. Wiltjer still in the twilight zone. He was much better last year and in a way I hope he transfers with the studs coming in next year. We just can’t get over the hump.
Have u all noticed that Mays cannot make more than 2 3′s at a time. We are going to lose another sickening game today and Wiltjer a “0″ for point production. A&M the better team and they wanted it more…Cal you have LOST it as well and might want to go back to the drawing boardl.
Harrow was one of 2 guys who played well so u can’t really blame him… Mays is awful, can’t for the life of me figure out why this guys playin all game every game, he can’t shoot for $hit and can’t do anything else.
We are getting outshot, outrebounded, outscored and outcoached. Harrow and Goodwin 10-25 and Wiltjer 0, Cauley Stein 4 pts. We suck guys and gals and are getting worse instead of better. This will be the biggest win in A&M history. Compliments of the GUTLESS MILDCATS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I can’t, for the life of me, figure out why an NBA GM would take Goodwin on “potential” anywhere in the top 20 picks. The only potential he’s shown for the last month and a half is the potential to turn it over every time he touches the ball.
This team has been the biggest embarrassment I’ve seen since Billy G. Besides Noel they are horrible. The fans should stay just to boo the Cats as they leave the court. I hope we lose every game from here on.
Not the end of the world. We thought they’d be better, but it’s a very young bunch without any upper class leaders. I think they are still a tourney team, and a threat to put it all together, but their margin for error of smaller.
All of you people saying such terrible things about these players and our team should be ashamed to call themselves “UK Fans”. This UK team obviously has potential, as we played a lot of big teams down to the wire. Losing a conference game at home shouldn’t be “embarrassing”, shit happens. Elston Turner had the game of his life, and part of it comes down to poor defense but part of it is him just having a phenomenal game. This is a team of primarily freshmen and just because they haven’t gelled as much as Cal’s previous UK primarily freshmen teams. If they don’t end up being much this year then so be it, most of the guys will stay and we should be ridiculous next year. However, calling these kids names and hoping “they lose the rest of their games” is embarrassing on YOUR part, grow up and support your local team. I’m sure they aren’t enjoying this any more than you are. Go Cats.
Calipari lost this game on purpose so Woulard and Samples wouldn’t commit to stoops and staff. He wants to make sure that football continues to suck so basketball will always be the #1 sport around here.
124 you are delusional! This team is french toast….no backbone or consistent fire except for Nerlens…time to start hoping for next year to mirror 2012 because we are going nowhere with this group of disjointed misfits.
I think Cal’s not totally innocent in what’s happened lately. His attitude is negative and it’s rubbing off. Poythress is not doing what he wants, but him being in the game helped them get in a position to win, and then got benched for Wiltjer who didn’t help them at all today. I like all these guys, but perfection can’t be expected.
I was in denial thinking this team could turn it around. I don’t think they even care if they turn it around or not… I said vandy would be a tough game. I was right but not for the right reason… Vandy was aweful but so is UK!!!
I would like to thank Mr Billy Clyde fora spot on scouting report. i believe in this team, I believe they suck and I will stand behind them fully. It’s a players program. Jerry Tipton can suck my dick. Oh, almost forgot, Matt Jones; get off of Stupps nuts. Train rider. You’ll be as wrong about him as you were my team this year. Eat it, I’m out.
Play more Kentucky bred boys these guys don’t get IT. Just because you come in as a freshmen doesn’t mean you get to play right away–everybody is laughing at our one and done now–with exception of Nerlens these guys are just using Cal and us for a year–sit on the bench and lets play to win–give me Nerlens and fill in around him–the starters are saying so what to Cal we are going pro after this year–put them down and play guys that want to play NOW FOR UK–I’m tired of this!!!
The rest of the BB world is in full celebration tonight as the ex-world CHAMPS lay out the red carpet for the new entrant to the SEC and allow A&M to come into Lexington and take over the city. Maybe Cal needs to take a break himself,but I do hope he gives this team 3 a days until Tuesday.
Without Turners ridiculous performance today Cats would have won by double digits easy . I still believe in Cal and believe he will have this tram ready by March for a run in the SEC and NCAA tourneys. We will get another shot at them this season and no way Turner puts up that many points again . I say aim for finishing top 4 in SEC so we can have a 2 round bye in SEC tourney and that will give us momentum going into post season play .
Everybody keeps saying these guys are staying next year and your wrong none of these guys are staying except maybe harrow and his stock is rising faster than anybody’s. you keep saying next year will be better but with again 0 upper class men next year won’t be as bad as missing the tourn this year but they won’t be much better.
That’s the worst team i have ever seen in the last 5 minutes. They have no go to guy at the end of games. And it has cost us alot of games and will happen alot more. We are in deep sewage with that lineup at the end of games. We cant shoot freethrows for crap. Cal really is frustrated. Where would this team be had Noel not reclassified.
this team sucks they do not deserve to wear the blue and white! COACH CAL WAKE UR AZZ UP AND NEVER EVER ALLOW GOODWIN OR AP TO PLAY ANOTHER MINUTE ON THIS TERRIBLE TEAM! HOW SAD FROM NCAA CHAMPS TO CBI CHAMPS 2012-2013 CATS GO TO HELL!
calm down. we won a NC last year, preceeded by a final four and an elite 8. this team is struggling, but season isn’t over yet. for old school and all the UL fans, we have have much more success last few years than everyone else, so yes, i can live off that for a while. enjoy your year, cause the storm is coming next year.
Sooner or later the reloading with freshman model will burn you, and
Cal got burned this time.
I predict his thinking will be re-formulated, and not be so quick
to just load up with a bunch of freshman.
If we did not have Darius and the other non-freshman last year, we
never would have won it all…They fueled MKG and the rest of them.
MAN I MISS MKG!! no give up….
lets wait till next year folks, keep remembering trophy we have…
Shawn Woods said none care about UK, AND HE IS CORRECT!
you guys are what i love and hate about UK fans. passion when we win and horrible losers. keep your heads up and continue to be true fans. don’t lose your bearing and faith because of a couple of bad performances.
WTF is wrong with everyone……
I literally hope everyone bashing teenagers for losing a basketball game gets in a car wreck on the way home…….they all deserve. a bunch of fat rednecks bashing kids for whatever they dont do well in their parents basement.
I would never wanna play here if i was a recruit and this was how the fan base was gonna treat me when i wasnt playing well……its embarrassing to be a uk fan right now because of the loser fans that just wanna complain about something…….
Get real guys. UK is not going to be #1 and go undefeated in the SEC regular season every season . Cal still has a lot of work to do with this team and they have a long way to go. You can’t give up on them 2 games into conference play. Turner had a game of a lifetime tonight and give props to him for stepping up and being the leader his team needed. Unfortunately his performance outshined Noels tonight. Give this team more time before you give up on them.
People calm down. This is not a good team, but Tubby took over a dynasty and left it in mediocrity. And Clyde took over a mediocre team and turned it to a nit team. Cal has gave us a team that we can at least get excited about every year, which we haven’t had since Pitino. This team may not get there, but next years damn sure will. Go Cats!
I dont agree with the bashing either but hoping for someone to get in a car wreck? I’m going to pray you don’t mean that. Too many lives are lost in car wrecks and its almost implying you hope those who let their frustrations known to the K S R world don’t deserve to live .
Ban that POS “BBN in complete mess” tired of all this belly aching and crying—some guy who averages 15 a game goes for 40 and you whine and cry!! Grow up you bunch of POS!! Be UK fans and support your team or leave KY! WE ARE THE BBN and we will have your back if you play for the blue and white!!! The real BBN will that is! Ignore all these other POS complaining on here!!! #WEAREUK
