    Watched Finebaum yesterday; A SCAR fan said we’re going down 42-10…ouch. If Benny and J. Jones are less than 100%, that could happen…ouch.

      I hope not. Ugh. That wouldn’t help the player’s confidence in ending the UF streak.

      i’m just hoping we keep it close. if the game is close at the end, i believe SJ can punch it in.

    I’ll go ahead and get this out of the way. Leave Slickie Rickie alone you guys. When he said 6 first rounders he meant that Phillipino league that Manny Pacquiao plays in. 🙂

    1. runningunnin.454

      Ha Ha Ha; but, we shouldn’t laugh too soon…they’re going to be pretty good.

    2. chris gettelfinger is not walking through that door

      Key to success: just tell them not to dis Manny!

    3. chris gettelfinger is not walking through that door

      They might be good, but even Cal hasn’t had 6 first rounders, has he? I might be wrong. Sometimes I get the lottery and the first round mixed up.

      I love Rick’s delusional nature. It’s highly entertaining.

  3. runningunnin.454

    Yep, Lamar is good; but, he’s going to have to run for his life this weekend.

    Maybe Bowden will turn into Randall Cobb this Sat. and help us get a win.

    1. chris gettelfinger is not walking through that door

      If he could do half of what Cobb did that would be awesome.

    Duke only beat Vermont by one point at Cameron a few years ago. Coach K was panicking, He kept saying, “Where’s Lebron”?

      Those losses during the BCG era were some of the most frustrating times I can recall as a Cats fan. Likewise the losses we suffered while on probation. That is why I cannot muster up much sympathy for Louisville fans, and also why I am so pissed about the UNC cheating situation. We got busted, and we did our penance as a program and the fans suffered. Now it’s THEIR turn! Justice should not play favorites.

    2. J-Dub421

      Exactly RCF. I am tired of feeling like we’re the only blue blood program who actually gets held to NCAA standards. Duke and UCLA sure don’t. UNC and U of L are trying to get out of theirs. You screwed up, take your punishment and clean house like we did.

  6. chris gettelfinger is not walking through that door

    Who were they just talking about?

    1. runningunnin.454

      They were talking about a football player at Las Chance U, and his brother who played at Indiana had been charged with killing an 18 year old in Tennessee…is that what you mean?

    2. chris gettelfinger is not walking through that door

      Yeah, I only caught bits and pieces of that.

    3. J-Dub421

      There’s an article on the main page, if you’re interested.

    4. chris gettelfinger is not walking through that door

      I looked it up elsewhere after RG’s response. Sad.

    Been listening to The Leach Report and hearing what Freddie has to say and what most every one else has to say and i don’t have much confidence in winning at S.C. but i will be watching and yelling and probably doing a little cussing and hoping.

    1. J-Dub421

      People weren’t giving us much chance against Louisville last year either. I’ll wait and see what happen on the field.

    2. RealCatsFan

      I like what you are saying, J-Dub, but Louisville had the big head, and they had a four-game winning streak against us. USC is hungry and looking to halt a 3-game skid against us. They will give us their best shot. Hope we are ready!

      There is now way SCaR is that good a team. Sure they are 2-0 but they arent exactly what the media has made them to be. MIZZOU is probably last in the East and their offense is hit or miss. SCar is talented but we also are talented. We just need some continuity. Absolutely no way this is a blow out. Our defense will step up and prove that is our strength this year. We will outgain SCAR by 150 yds. Hold them under 20 and we score 30. 7 from defense and 23 from offense.

    4. maximumscott

      Ok UK has been disrespecting ever since Media days. Its been all about SC and Bentley. Honestly SC would be 1-1 if it werent for Deebo and STs points. If we keep their STs from scoring and they dont score off a TO, i think we win. SJ is a gamer.

    5. J-Dub421

      They will, but I also think some are putting too much stock in SC’s first two wins this season.

    Matt needs nose whistle recognition on his phone. Someone on Twitter please tweet this to him. 🙂

      RCF, if you don’t mind me asking, what company in Montgomery does your employer do business with?

    3. RealCatsFan

      They are called “The Medical Place”. They sell a lot of durable medical equipment, lots of VA contracts. They are a minority owned company – very nice folks, good to work with.

    4. chris gettelfinger is not walking through that door

      Cool. We should do lunch when you’re in The Gump (the nickname some like to use for Montgomery since the Gump movie came out…Drew Franklin would dig that).

    Can’t use a facial recognition phone…my face would break it!

  10. Sentient Third Eye

    Facial recognition is utterly useless to me. Being shrouded in darkness is a key part of my innate coolness.

    Miami Coach Jim Larranaga was the coach at Bowling Green when they beat UK in the UKIT. It was the season before probation. The worst season ever. I was a student at UK from 1987-1991. Pretty sure the only period in history where they have credit for zero NCAA tournament wins.

    The smitten pitino’s comments are akin to him used to have been dating Hannah Davis(us) and telling you his current girlfriend Rosie O Donnell(loserville) is better.
