    Again with the “It’s someone’s super bowl.” Guess what, sometimes the other team is OUR super bowl. What? What? Tennessee is leading the SEC and is ranked #1 in the country. We are the team that stands to gain the most. It’s our turn to be the “playing out of their minds” team. What? What? You want the team to “let it go and go play?” Try to sitting on the bench instead of yelling and stomping around on the sidelines. Tennessee’s team is not stacked with high school five stars. They just stick with the program, gain valuable experience and get stronger physically. Maybe there is a lesson there. What?

      Guess what, he wasn’t talking about the UT game when he made the Super Bowl comment here.

      Why don’t you go cheer for Tennessee then, since you love them so much? Clearly Kentucky is not the team for you because all you ever do is complain about UK and Coach Cal. Do yourself and the rest of us a favor and go find another team to cheer for. Transfer somewhere else, UK is a bad fit for you.

      There is a good team in Virginia you can yell for if you don’t mind getting beat by 16 seeds.

      Hagans got destroyed by that little dude for LSU. Just totally embarrassed. If we’re depending on Hagans to get us to the promise land, we’re screwed

      Please stop saying what so much.

      So you’re saying we’re fine with Hagans not playing well? You’re missing the whole point of the article, which is we need everyone at their best, not just one or two guys.

      VA cat gets owned every time he posts something, a lot like bigolSlaterMedic aka no more excuses.

      I believe catsarerunnin has already taught VACat the lesson. So they stuck with a program that has won a title when??? NEVER is the word I believe you’re looking for VA.

      I bet you don’t have much fun watching UK games VaCat.
      Although I do think Calipari fatigue is a real thing by many fans…but most of that is 100% curable with #9.

      Ashton has had a bad week and a half; Tennessee has had a bad 110 years. UT ranks 4th in SEC in all time winning percent, and 5th in SEC in all time wins.
      They have 0 NCAA championships, 0 NCAA final fours, 0 NIT championships, and 2 NIT final fours.
      Western Kentucky has a more illustrious basketball history than UT, but hey…yeah, they’re our Super Bowl.

      Rick Barnes is doing just what he did at Texas, and that’s completely fine for Tennessee. But his teams always have a ceiling that is just below what it takes to win titles. There is no lesson UK needs to learn from that.

      I was wrong, it was not catsarerunnin, it was RG454 that put VACat in his place.

    Have Ryan buy him a ticket.

    Uk cant win against a good team without hagans playing his best ball .. Best ball being guarding the ball passing n hittimg a 10-12 ft jumper. No way hagans goes to th e nba if he cant hit an open shot

    1. DelrayCat

      Actually, I think this stretch reveals that the one-and-done Hagans talk was a little premature.

    2. 4everUKblue

      I hope so, I’d like to have him back next year.

    Different folks have different strokes. This is why you have other kids that can fill the role. Not Hagans night? How about Quickly? What about the Jermarlboro Man {yes, I realize he’s a shooter.. but if pushed has guard skills). Point is, KENTUCKY does not live and die by one kid’s lack of 7Ps exhibition. It is a team effort. It is the coaches job, and I give CAL and his bench brethren Kudos, to recognize which cylinder(s) to ignite.

    I wouldn’t put so much of this on just Hagans. Other people like Quickley, Baker, Montgomery, and Richards also need to step up and could easily be the difference in the game…

    Obviously Hagan’s is the motor we need in the car he makes it go. His motor is what gets the other players going to play hard and aggressive. Go getem Ashton the BBN needs you and we love ya
