That just shows how immmature these guys are..Not the fans fault that they got smoked in Knoxville. Total embarrassment. Anyone who thinks this team will do anything different now is fooling themselves.
Seriously guys? Don’t attack one of the guys who plays his tail off. Yeah there are a couple guys who didn’t give 100% today–but WCS wasn’t one of them. Man hates to lose like all of us. Not a good week for BBN–but we will be back and these guys have my support win or lose. And I commend him for defending his teammates and himself.
I can’t say that I disagree with Willie here. It is flat out embarrassing how many band-wagon fans we have. All of the negativity and nasty name-calling by immature, spoiled brat fans would make me regret my decision to come to UK if I were these guys. When you have a freshman laden team and you lose your best player, these things happen. Go find a new team if you can’t handle anything other than a National Championship every year. The rest of us will continue to support our Cats no matter what and will appreciate the GREAT coach and the players he recruits every year even if things don’t go as well as we had hoped…
Most of you need to get a life. I hate the way this team loses just as much as anyone, but I’m not going to waste my time and energy shredding 18 year old kids who (mostly) play hard. They don’t have the talent level to meet normal expectations. Change your expectations and stop acting like morons.
You idiot Kentucky fans…take the good with the bad. They’re kids. Just a game. I care more for these kids than I care for you idiot fans. Stop insulting my team. Yeah, bitching by idiot fans is going to fix this. Take that crap to a professional team. These are freshmen.
How can you stay behind someone who is to lazy to run the court? They are the reason Noel got hurt to start with, throwing the ball away every trip down the court and nerlens was the only player they had enough effort to run it down. Don’t you talk about fake fans you lady a$$ bum! To lazy to run the court. Don’t you think you will stay here next year, call got rid of the garbage when he came to KY, so I expect him to do the same thing next year when the next class comes in, so enjoy it for now, it will be over soon. You bunch of effortless bums.
WCS, lost his cool. We don’t lose to UT by 30 even if we pick up 5 guys from KSR. I forgive him for this grave mistake. UK Basketball is way bigger than any player. Today was a tough day. This team can and will win every game from here on out. The only one that is scary is UF at home
You can make a situation better or worse when you open your mouth…….I don’t fault the kid who played hard today and saw his friend and teammate go down to injury earlier this week–I fault the “adults” on here who say the most ridiculous and stupid things to college kids. Man GET A LIFE! We won the Natl Championship less than a year ago–these guys lost Nerlens less than a week ago…..whatever issues are going on–let Cal deal with it and leave these kids alone.
Dont beleive everything you see on the NET Willie, you got more fans behind you than you could ever imagine, you need to get to some of your Fake teamates and let them know they need to start listening to Coach,….not everyone on your team has heart like you got brother
11 Agree totally WCS hasn’t been playing ball that long but he gives 100% everytime he steps on the floor. Hope this doesn’t change anything with our current players for next season. Would love to see WCS come back he’s not ready for the NBA. I hate the word potential. Come back to school work on your body, you shot, your conditioning, and your ball handling skills. Could be one of the top 5 big men next year. UK has all the tools for you and the real fans are behind you 100%
So, you go out on national television and play soft as cotton and then want to get on Twitter and call out fans?? First WCS you played soft and then Poythress whined and pouted the entire game as though he didnt even want to be on the court. The only guy with fire on that team wasnt able to play due to his knee being shredded last game. Poythress makes me want to change channel when watching him pout and whine while on the floor. I’m with Cal when he says that he has guys that just cant be coached.
You’re going to attack the fans after that embarrassing effort? Son, you don’t have the right to talk like that to the fans. Play with a little pride and effort before criticizing the fans. I promise the blue and white means more to me than it does WCS, so I don’t want to hear this crap minutes after getting embarrassed by a terrible UT team.
Why not go after your uncoachable teammates instead? Who in his right mind takes to Twitter to fan bash moments after absorbing a historic beatdown? Why would jumping on Twitter be the first thing that crosses his mind anyway? The future is bright. Thank god we’ll soon put this season in the rearview mirror.
6 points from you and Poythress. Enjoy your 2 years in the D league and 8 in Spain. BBN never gives up on its team. We’ll support effort all day. We don’t support entitled high schoolers who can’t block out.
Willie,the real fans will stand with you always,no need to even respond to the bandwagon fans that are just mad because they went out and bought a UK hat or shirt and think its a terrible thing to wear right now.ill have my UK blue and white on forever.this game is over, all you can do is improve on the next game, so go get um!!
Bib Sugar–seriously??? I’m not happy we lost–I’m not happy where the team is at right now–but neither is the team or the coach. Cmon dude–its a kid who probably just had the worst week of his basketball life. They need support and encouragement as this is the first time since being here they were embarassed–and you can tell they were. We will come back better than ever–you know we will–take a chill pill and relax. These guys are kids–and they will get better as bb players and they will learn to temper things they say online.
We’re all upset about the loss, but come on, these are 18-19 year old freshman. UK fans are the most spoiled children out there…..we’ve been super lucky the last 2-3 years with our freshman classes. This one is playing like freshman….which they are. Give them a break, oh…wait….you all were probably totally mature at doing your best work at 18
52–I’m sure you were as mature as the day is long at 18. I’m lucky I didn’t get myself killed at 18 doing all the stupid stuff I did–and I didn’t have social media to expose every single mistake I make. Its not a typical KY team–it has flaws and we all know what they are–and losing your best player with 7 games left doesn’t help. Take Mash off the Unforgettables with 7 games left….take MKG off of last years team…….Knight off the Final Four team……hard to recover in 3 days from it
I don’t see fake fans that were offering prayers for Noel and wasn’t worried about the season and more concern about a players future instead of the program. When I see 3 or 4 players on a team who won’t listen to their coach and just give up on certain plays the last thing I would be worrying about is what people is saying. If you don’t want fans talking trash then show some hustle and heart when your wearing a UK uniform. And by the way us fans ( WE ARE UK)!!!!
and the guys saying he needs to leave–or get hurt–get off our board you stupid trolls. Maybe some people should think about if they would say these things to the face of a 6’10 240 athlete before they post them on a message board…….and don’t lie and say you would
It’s obvious a lot of these posts are from other fan bases, not BBN. C’mon KSR don’t be abused like this. Looks bad on the rest of us fans. I’m feeling bad after such a performance but to call out rhese kids in such a negative way is awful. Hope the kids realize that many of thses posts are U of L or Tennesse fans making fun of us all.
I Love this team! Up or down, national champion or nit. BBN for life! The team is embarrassed & down enough without losing fan support. We should be their support, not people who kick when they ate down
First off to fans who tweet nasty things at players, get a life and root for another team!
Now… willie, Your immaturity here is laughable! How about you apologize to the fans who drove down I 75 today to fill that arena with blue and white only to see you get dominated and our team destroyed… You are entitled to nothing young man but your opinion… these fans are he best around… if you don’t like high expectations, then don’t let the cord hit you in the butt! I swear your smug interviews this year, considering you are a complete project, make me long for the humility of guys like Gilly
I would wager that a lot of the trashy fools on here bashing these players have never set foot on campus. Get a grip. Grown men and women who live through 18 and 19 year old kids playing a sport are pathetic.
I am an alum of the University of Kentucky. I will say that if the boys of last year can take the stardom of playing a kids’ game great; then you certainly can take an outlash when you lose by ~30 to a JV team. I don’t tweet players, I don’t have the time nor the energy. However if you want to take the handshakes and high fives when you win, you gotta take the frustration when you get crushed by our rival. Fans have the right to be angry, don’t take that away from people. Watch MJ and how he dealt with losing. Dear UK team of 2012-13, act like you give a crap.
Dwoos, I’m a University of Kentucky alumnus. My guess is that you’re not. You’re an embarrassment to the Big Blue Nation. If you don’t like it, maybe you should find another team to spew your bullshit to.
Not many 18 yr olds are as mature as what we are used to. Furthermore, our kids have not experienced adversity like this. To automatically assume that we were not gonna take a lump with our best player out is insane. Hell, if we lost Davis last yr, what would we have done? It would have been damn tough to maintain dominance and win it all I tell u that. It is a shame that we don’t have a bench or any veterans to allow some growth though. These guys aren’t awful players, they just aren’t as great as wall, knight, big cuz, mkg, Davis, jones, etc. They also feel pressure to live up to incredible expectations. What a dbl edged sword this “style” can create!
Redneck, lol, your pathetic , but to answer your questions, I didn’t go to uk, my fathers job moved to North Carolina from ky, so I went to chapel hill, does that make you a bigger fan? I am hurt we lost I’m a die hard fan, if your not a fan why are you on here.
#9- and the rest of the UK critics……do u actually think u all are helping this program by getting on a public forum and BASHING this team. Whether u think it or not, realize the harm that u do witb ur words. U think recruits are watching? Its a shame that the idiot fans are always the loudest and most vocal. I just hope the future recruits realize that those type of fans only make up a very small number of the BBN. MOST OF US TRUE FANS WILL SUPPORT THE TEAM THROUGH ANYTHING. While we may think it was embarassing and that the team showed no fight, we are not going to just bash the players and say spiteful things just to rant. Yes, this loss was a embarrassing and theu played with no passion, and yes I want to pull my hair out too. But I will continue to support and root hard for this team ti turn it around. Will they? I have my doubts but that doesnt mean ill turn my back on them. And the vast majority of the BBN wojt turn their backs either. We will pack Rupp and scream my head off for this team….and the nect and the next team. Thats the true BBN !!! You UK “critics” need to realize that u cant just be fans when things are going good like last year. Its just a shame thst the idiots are the ones who like to show their ass the most. I just hope the recruits realize this. Go CATS!!
Can’t you lock a twitter account from receiving tweets?
If not, it needs to be an option.
None of this interaction between fans & players was possible pre 80s or mid90s.
A little to personal for the general fan base dont you think?
I am a huge fan, but unlike you I have a life outside of sports. I’m not going to bash eighteen and nineteen year old kids. My happiness doesn’t depend on whether or not a squad of kids just out of high school wins or loses. I know the potential that the team will have next season, and I’ll take a down season between two potential championship seasons over what we suffered through under Billy Gillispie, and over what most SEC teams go through every season.
94 how do you know about my life. If I want to get on here and talk about how shitty we played I will. It was embarrassing. My happiness does depend on if we win or lose. That’s what a diehard does. Your a complete dumbass
I see UK has some real hateful fans and now undestand why WCS got mad and said what he did. You are just running other player from UK acting like total fools, I’m talking about you DrinknBy TheBay and Dwoos to name a few. I’m sure you were great basketball players, NOT so why not shut your mouth and go be a Louisville fan since you already act like one. The players are kids/young men and not professionals and we are lucky to have decent young people on out team with a coach who teaches them how to be good people. Basketball is JUST a game. Back this team or get off the bandwagon.
#104-wesa…… I couldnt have said it better myself. They dont realize the harm that theyre doing to the program that they supposedly “love”. Theyre immature idiots who really need to get a clue. Grow up!! Youre the reason that we have a bad rep throughout the nation. Cause the idiot fans are the loudest. RECRUITS!!! THEY ARE ONLY A FRACTION OF THE BBN! THEY SPEAK FOR NONE OF US TRUE BLUE FANS.
Let’s not throw WCS off a building just yet. He is young and with youth we tend to miss the big picture in most situations. I hate to say this but Nerlens getting injured might be the best thing for this team. Several are going to have to grow and find their big boy pants. At this rate we are insured to have some, what ESPN calls, upper classmen next year.
There not fake fans or bandwagon riders, they simply see the players packing up for the season and are responding to what they see on the floor. The unforgettable’s played with passion and the fans noticed. We loved that team not because of their accomplishments but because they left everything on the floor and the fans appreciated the effort! I dont care about the statement WCS, we expect to see basketball played with passion in the state of Kentucky. You give us that and we are with you win or loose, but if the players dont care why should we?
#83 – Its a free country and you have the right to your opinions, but to think that Player have to give a crap if you are angry is absurd. Who the heck are you? You are a voyeur, a spectator, a fan(atic). Players play for the team and the coach and the University. You are so far down the line that they can’t see you. It’s like saying you have they right to be angry if a movie ends differently than you want. You have the right… but no one gives a crap what you think.
Cats fan in ferguson- it is perfectly ok to criticize the play of the team. But there is a huge difference in criticize and bashing. These guys are just bashing caused theyre pissed. They speak without thinking of the consequences. Typical young people. They must realize that theyre not doing anything but hurting the program. And theyll say……im not hurting the program. These kids dont read this stuff. Or theyll say…..I dont care, ill say what I want. Well, ur not a true fan if thats ur attitude. You can critique all u want, and even criticize if u must. But dont just bash the team just to be doing it or cause ur pissed. People will use ur words against you. Recruits will see these words and think that we are all like this. That the entire BBN turned on their OWN team. Their team that they swear they love. Their team that they say their happiness depends on. But yet they will turn on them and hurt the program as a whole. Im not saying that a recruit would see a post and say…..well, im not going to UK now. But it definately doesnt help and very eell could hurt our chances of getting an elite recruit. With refruiting so tight these days, we dont need idiot fans hurting our chances of getting these kids.
It was a stupid post. But what bothers me is the time stamp on it is less than 20 minutes after the game. So apparently the most important thing WCS had to do after his team just dropped a 30 point bomb to a bad team is walk into the locker room, fire up his iPhone and read his twitter account. Really? That’s the best thing you can do to improve after embarrassing yourself on national tv? And we wonder why hs team has no fight in it.
A bunch of guys who think they are one and dones, but should be three or four year projects. Good Luck in the DevelopeMENTAL League! Maybe somebody in the NBA will waste a draft pick on you. It doesn’t bother most fans one bit that we lose games this year, because we know our guys just aren’t that talented, but don’t call us “fake fans” because we call you out when you give pixx poor effort! We’ve got FOUR Daniel Orton’s on this team, and all four have 1/2 of his God given ability. Basketball season starts on October 15th,and I can’t wait!
Every program has idiotic fan or two and back in the day it wasn’t noticed. But with todays technology these few idiots have a platform to act like idiots, and our players have twitter handles that make them vulnerable to this kind of negativity. So our players either need to not have a twitter handle or whatever or they just got to realize for every idiot there is ten REAL fans! So just turn your head the other way when you get the negative. So from all of us real fans WCS keep your head up and we with you always! RIDE OR DIE! GO CATS!
im a die hard true blue fan through and through…i will always cheer for the blue and white regardless..it is just so frustrating watching this team tho..they have no heart no hustle and they really dont understand what it means to wear the blue and white…ive watched several middle school teams with more spirit and pride than these guys have..how can you play ball all your life and do the things that these guys do..its so obvious that they havnt caught up with the college game yet..and these so called draft projection guys need to quit blowing these players heads up and take them off the draft board because they are clearly not ready for the nba..its only going to hurt any of these players career if they go early..but now cal is saying that some are just simply not coachable and its clear the ones he is talking about…all the players need to do a nut check and man up..its time to start playing big boy ball and quit feeling sorry for yourself.and thats for ALL the PLAYERS..GO CATS
Who ever thought we would be counting the days to spring football today? This team comes out ranked in the top 3 in every poll and shows up with BADTUDE and no work ethic and then wants to bust the fans for disliking them! What’ a JOKE 90 percent of this team is.
Everyone spends all week, season picking these amateur players apart. These guys put in the time, earn their scholarships, etc. I was hoping they get more out of it than that, but the responses on this feed give me little hope that fans that are responding will be mentors or positive role models. We owe these guys our gratitude and when we have opportunities to teach them what it means to be a Wildcat, we need to do so. WCS has not played flawless and it would have been a better part of his judgement to not have made such remarks, but he had reason and frustration. Anyone that responds to him negatively here has only ignorance and is not a Wildcat. You my friend are a fake fan!
Wow just had to get on here to tell 56 to go hang his worthless ass. Wish a kid from your team would tear Acl pathetic. Just support the team and wait till next year and all this will be like a bad dream when we are cutting the nets on nine
