    Keldon Johnson has to be more consistent. He was never in this game. Even in the first ten minutes before the whole team checked out

    It might have something to do with self-fulfilling prophecy. There was a negative vibe around the game, i.e. Cal was not excited about going to Knoxville. I think the players knew that it would be tough given the fact that we dominated Tennessee in Lexington. It was like they were expecting the worse and they played down to that expectation. It was a mental thing as much as anything. An older, more experienced team would have come in with their game face on.

      You mean like #1 UT did when they came to rupp 2 weeks ago?

    2. RealCatsFan

      To be fair, I think UT was “drinking the poison” back then. They had a few close games that showed that they thought they couldn’t lose. That game was their “perfect storm”, this one was ours. I think a probable rubber match in the SEC tournament will probably be a much closer game and sort out which team is better.

      RealCatsFan, I definitely agree about the first game and the impending rematch. I just thought VaCat’s comment about ventran teams being immune to those kinds of games, especially on the road was foolish. Teams have bad games regardless of experience. The rhetoric he constantly spews after losses is redundant and tiresome.

      No it couldn’t be because UT played a great game. It had to be the “negative vibe” surrounding the game. That’s one of the dumbest things ever posted here. And that’s going some considering.

      We’ve come to expect that from VACat, much like some other negative commenters on here.

    Jordan Bone is a junior; which is what Ashton, Tyler, and Keldon should strive to be. They need to grow up before considering pro ball.

    1. RealCatsFan

      You and I are on the same vibe lately- great minds think alike! Ashton needs to look at Bone and model his game after him. That being said, I REALLY hope Bone enters the draft this year – and Ashton stays.

    2. 4everUKblue

      Agree with both of you.

  4. Duuuuuude

    Bone is a bucket.

    1. T-wah

      Tyler was a sucket today. Back to the drawing board. Gotta regroup and get Travis back. We’ll be ok.

    Lolol “As Calipari Expected.” You all make it sound like predicting that a probable All-SEC guard would be a difficult matchup is savvy coaching. If he expected it, could he not have planned better?

    1. 4everUKblue

      Well well well if it isn’t BigolSlaterMedic’s mom. Obviously posting stupid comments runs in the family.

    Calipari can’t do anything when his tip of freshmen, Hagans, Johnson and Herro, are getting plunked. Not to those guys, stay another year and get closer to being men.

    1. mcp157

      Trio not tip

  7. mcp157

    Punked not plunked and note instead of not

    I’m extremely disappointed in Hagan’s consistency. We have enough games under our belt to know that if Hagans is playing poorly then we struggle as a team. I know this isn’t a great insight, I mean anyone is going to play worse if the point guard isn’t doing well. But I don’t know if in all my years of watching UK I’ve seen a player that has the dramatic swings Ashton has shown. Since December he’s had games where he looks like an all American and other games where he doesn’t even belong on the floor. IMO, Cal has to recognize this sooner and sub in Quickly. IQ was the only player that had a decent game yesterday, which is saying something when the entire team was doing so poorly. I think Ashton has to be pulled early when he’s playing badly, so as not to pull the team down with him.

    Hagans should be in high school. He did really well all things considered. He’s gonna be nails in the post season
