UK vs. Duke LIVE BLOG, sponsored by State Farm Agent Tiffany Thacker

A message from our sponsor:

Tiffany Thacker State Farm is much like this year’s Kentucky Wildcats and we are giving the entire state of Kentucky a reason to stand up, be proud, and cheer! Let us save you money on auto, home, and life insurance!! We’ve helped Kentuckians from “Pikeville to Paducah” and our reputation, much like the Cats, speaks for itself!! 

We have a special request during the holiday season. Through our own personal experiences, we got to know the wonderful team in the NICU at the University of Kentucky Children’s Hospital. They shared with us the struggles and obstacles that they had to overcome to care for these innocent babies. They mentioned that they had to rely on donations of sheets for the NICU beds or make them themselves. That really spoke to us and we’ve been wanting to help ever since. Now is that time!

I’m proud to say that for every new quote we give from November 1st through the end of the year, we will donate a NICU sheet to UK’s NICU unit at the University of Kentucky’s Children’s Hospital!

So please help us and get a free quote today! You do not have to take the quote, just give us the time to get one! If we save you money for the holidays, great! Either way, a NICU child will have a beautiful new sheet to lay on while it’s being cared for!

    I’m with Drew, Zion is chubby for a college basketball player

    1. Robkycats54

      IDK why coach Cal didn’t start the lineup he started in the Bahamas SMH that is our best lineup


      We was at our best with that lineup, ever since he changed that lineup we look terrible, Herro is better off the bench (Microwave) and I like Reid playing with Ej
      Come on Cal SMH we still will win

  2. pwells618

    Well that’s it. Ball game. Had a bad feeling

  3. Matt10

    Got to go to bed. I call a 25 pt loss after seeing terrible shot selection and leaving so many wide open shots, PJ and Reid nothing, Tyler cold. Good night.


    With officiating slanted so heavily toward Duke (shocking), they’ve got no hope of coming all the way back from this. Those last 2 fouls on PJ and Keldon were 1000% BS.

    1. TERIDACTAL1961

      Duke 3 more fouls than us. It aint the officials. Cal never teaches defending the 3 ball, and no one is gonna stop the combo of Barrett and Williamson this year. Duke has what they need to win the title. We don’t.


      It’s not the # of fouls…it’s the impact of the BS calls.

  5. ClutchCargo

    Thank goodness for Keldon Johnson.

  6. Kat4Life

    Time to put our arrogance on the shelf. We have a long ways to go

  7. Cmart0907

    Duke is clearly showing that they’re the better team. We need a shot blocker down low. That’s what is killing us.

    1. Parker_UKFanNC

      Can’t block 45 inch vertical’s

    2. Cmart0907

      Will at least stop the 19 layups duke have. They’re beating us in all facets of the game.

  8. cking

    This is our worst case scenario playing out in front of our eyes…

    This is embarrassing.

    1. ClutchCargo

      It’s November 6. Not a make or break game at all. Also, lots of great teaching material from this game.

  9. cking

    Green should have transferred to Iona…

    He absolutely sucks…

    This may go down as our worst defeat to Duke ever..

  10. letsroll76

    Now that’s recruiting,

    1. 4everUKblue

      it’s called the duffel bag drop

  11. ScottGreene22

    Puke is hot and playing D we are cold and not playing anything

  12. MyFriendsBrotherInLawKnowsMattJones

    Herro has no idea what a good shot is. Hasn’t taken a good one yet.

    1. Cmart0907

      I agree. He is like 1-9. All bad shots.

  13. cking

    Where is Pj??

    1. Cmart0907

      On the bench with 2 fouls.

  14. cking

    They going to put 120 on us???

    1. Cmart0907

      Close enough.

  15. Thetruthshallsetbennyfree

    Come on guys Duke has gotten away with several reach-ins, Zion got away with a blatant charge that lead to a three, a couple if Duke push-offs have been called as fouls on UK. Not to mention travels and over the backs. About the only time they want to call a Duke foul is to slow Kentucky’s pace.

    1. Thetruthshallsetbennyfree

      Which helped stop the clock while Duke was hot so they had mkre time to put up more points.

    2. TERIDACTAL1961

      Aint the refs dude, we are just outmanned and out talented. Herro keeps running away from Zion, saw him do it three times.

    3. Truth_Hurts

      Has nothing to due with the refs. Kentucky is not rebounding and not defending.

    4. Thetruthshallsetbennyfree

      We ain’t playing either but these refs are doing exactly what I said.

  16. chris gettelfinger is not walking through that door

    So much for those of us who thought all those guys couldn’t play together because they play the same position.

  17. ScottGreene22

    Puke looks like the experienced team we look like a high school team. Puke getting anywhere on the floor they want with little resistance.

  18. ClutchCargo

    Anybody know how much Zion Williamson weighs and how high he can jump? I must have missed it.

    1. runningunnin.454

      Well, I hope you didn’t miss Laura Rutledge interviewing Tyus Jones, I was hoping she’d just take him somewhere and give him some, so we could get back to the game.

  19. Kfckernel

    Need to press and see Zion pass out

    1. runningunnin.454

      We never play a decent press…man-to-man press is worthless.

  20. dakich is stupid

    Hero isn’t ready to play be games like this yet. He is playing way to nervous.

  21. UKBaker24

    Everyone will say it’s early and good game to learn from but the reality is that we’ve all been saying title since the Bahamas and we simply put too much stock into those games. We look like a group of misfits out there. Fact is, since we’ve been playing in the Champions Classic, our performance in these games has been a pretty good indicator of how the season will go

    1. cking

      Agreed 100%

      Those grown men in Bahamas may have been eating too much Golden Corral.

  22. Kat4Life

    Could not have scripted a more disappointing start. Our poor play in the last two exhibition games has carried over , Duke has pummeled us in every facet of the game.

  23. runningunnin.454

    When are the guards going to pass the ball. Williamson played 6 minutes with 2 fouls, and we didn’t go at him once…just guards throwing up 23 footers. Is Cal asleep on the bench?

    1. cking

      I have to agree with you’s like we pay this guy 22 million a year and he’s like “ you guys work it out”.

  24. michaelb

    NIT if we’re lucky

  25. sportsbird66

    Zion may be chubby,but he is good!!!

  26. cking

    Zion may get the hype..but Barrett is amazing around the rim…

  27. sportsbird66

    Zion looks like LeBron on his drives. Or he does against us tonight.

  28. Truth_Hurts

    I know this is early in the season, but if Kentucky can’t guard the perimeter it’s going to be a long year.

  29. Jarisn02

    Where is the heart?? Put a short chubby white guy in. Brad get in there!!

  30. runningunnin.454

    Well, it’s like I called it; so called basketball experts have Kansas No.1…they looked ok for most of their game, and then nearly blew it. There is no way we should be #2.
    Duke has the best team money can buy, and are definitely the No.1 team in the country…no way Kansas can beat them.

  31. sportsbird66


  32. Truth_Hurts

    Is it baseball season yet?

  33. katmark

    I am sorry but I don’t like getting blown out in any game. We look awful

  34. katmark

    I bet cal wish he could have landed Zion

  35. Matt10

    At least we’re a football school now.
