  1. No more excuses cal

    You can’t count seton hall remember cal said to pretend we didn’t lose that game

      First of all, you don’t get to say “we” as much as you shlt on our coach and team. Secondly, context and nuance are key when you’re trying to quote someone. What Cal said was that he told his team to pretend like it didn’t happen, which is advice often given to people, or teams that face adversity. It’s a coping sentiment so folks don’t dwell on negative things. It’d be one thing if you were just an obvious troll, but you’re not. You’re an embarrassment to our fan base because you really believe the crap you spew. Go find another team that wins the championship every single year. Go jump in their bandwagon because I assure you we will save no room for you on ours. Whether UK goes out in the first round, or win it all, most of us love our Cats…you’re just a miserable person with the intelligence level of toe jam.

      Banana, no more excuses is nothing more than a troll, probably BigolSlaterMedic’s new username or his daddy.

      To be fair no more excuses makes less sense with every post.

      No more excuses obviously attended those fake UNC classes no one else attended, he’s obviously been dumbed down.

    Great perspective to keep in front of us, Ms T. We control our destiny big time.

      Time to unleash that big time nasty D on them.

    Great article. Seton Hall should be a Q1 loss since they are top 50 RPI, and SH could still jump up there in their NET rankings if they win some of the huge games coming up (which they’re predicted to do). But with two games against the Vols, our destiny as a #1 seed is in our hands anyway.

    I love these break downs , thank you for the info . This is a big week for uk basketball. I think we got it – we’ve been improving a lot & I don’t think we’re even close to peaking yet .

    I have a question about this… I do understand the NET rankings and the Q wins… But I am just curious if this is what the NCAA is looking at to seed the teams then how is Gonzaga ranked in the top 4 teams??? I mean they can’t have very many Q1 wins in their conference and I understand that ain’t there fault cause they are in a weak conference and not in the conferences that give teams many chances to get quality wins… But still how are they getting this much respect when other mid majors such as Houston isn’t getting that kind of respect… Don’t get me wrong I hope we get far away from Gonzaga in the tournament cause the way they shoot the basketball and their size would be a tough matchup for us… So I hope we can only play them in the championship… Also don’t get me wrong I don’t know what their resume looks like exactly but I am a college basketball fan and watch everybody play not just our Cats… So I know their schedule mostly… But can someone explain this to me??? Also if we win both games this week and our only loss in the regular season is to Tennessee in Knoxville… which is a possibility do you guys think we have a chance of a 1 seed

    1. Biglaw Dawgin'

      Pretty good point here. Gonzaga is 3-2 in Q1, and 14 of their 23 wins are against Q3&4. It seems like the main factor here is not really Q1 wins, but avoiding losses in Q2-4, which Tyler alluded to was very important. Kentucky is 7-2 in Q1 vs. Gonzaga’s 3-2. However, Gonzaga has no losses in Q2-4 and UK has 1.

      It seems that avoiding losses in Q2-4 may be the most important factor of them all. UK and Gonzaga have very similar resumes except UK has 4 more Q1 wins than Gonzaga, but 1 more Q2 loss. It appears our single Q2 loss hurt us more than 4 additional Q1 wins helped us. Only thing I can figure is that their win over #1 Duke (at around the same time as our bad loss to them) is propelling them.
