    11 losses by top 25 teams this week (2 of them florida)
    7 of them were on their own court.
    rough week for ranked teams

    1. ClutchCargo

      No kidding. Kinda glad we’re off for a few days.

    2. runningunnin.454

      Afraid it’s dUKe this year…grrrr.

    3. chris gettelfinger is not walking through that door

      Double grrrrr!!!!!!!!

    4. Realme

      I concurrr with your grrrrs.

    5. RealCatsFan

      Well, everyone was saying the same thing about us in 2015. Of course, you can”t count on the NCAA and the ref’s going out of their way to screw Duke.

    6. ClutchCargo

      I would say Duke is peaking way too early, but they are very young, so they still have a way to go to reach their ceiling.

    7. JTHinton

      Exactly what I’m saying clutch cargo

    8. RealCatsFan

      I will always be a “Gator Hater”, but I hate seeing their tailspin at this point in the season because it makes the SEC look bad.

  2. ukjaybrat

    kansas and kentucky are both 7-1 now.

    uk will move up above texas a&m and florida in the polls.
    will they keep kansas above us because they beat us?
    or will they knock kansas down below us because our only loss is to a top 10 team on a neutral court and kansas lost at home to an unranked team?

    decisions decisions….

    1. chris gettelfinger is not walking through that door

      I saw the last 11 or so minutes of Washington/Kansas. Huskies’ ZONE defense did a number on KU’s offense. What was strange is it really disrupted their 3 point shooting, which is supposed to bust a zone. But a lot of that was Washington’s guys constantly tipping and stealing passes at and beyond the 3 point arc. I think it had KU’s guards rattled a bit.

      If we play them again in the tourney, take note of what a good zone can do.

    2. ClutchCargo

      It seems that the results of a head to head matchup would carry more weight than what KU did against some other team, meaning KU should still be a notch ahead of UK with the same record. Really, I just want whatever needs to happen to keep us on track for at least a #2 seed come tournament time.

    3. ClutchCargo

      Washington kind of reminded me of this UK team, with all that length. They do have a bulldog, Ulis-like PG, though.

    4. ukjaybrat

      Clutch, that didn’t work out so well for us last year. i almost preferred getting a three seed in a better bracket than a 2 in unc’s bracket.

      someone came up with what i thought was a great idea last year. reverse seed the bracket and let the teams pick their region. start with each 16 seed. let the “best” 16 seed pick their location first. then the second best 16 seed gets to pick. and the last 16 seed gets the remaining region. repeat this process for every seed and eventually you get a system that is a lot more balanced than what it is now imo.

    5. runningunnin.454

      Wasn’t Kansas #2; they were over ranked. Right now, I think we’re over ranked; but, the improvement game to game is noteworthy.
      Just have to keep improving.

    6. ukjaybrat

      i guarantee that teams would rather travel an extra hundred miles than be forced to play an underseeded powerhosue.

    7. ukjaybrat

      yeah kansas was only #2 because they were undefeated and beat us. we’re absolutely overranked as well. but until someone outside the top 10 beats us we’ll stay where we are.

    8. chris gettelfinger is not walking through that door

      That is an interesting idea ukjaybrat.

  3. RealCatsFan

    I’m kind of surprised that Trump hasn’t left his mark on the White House yet – kind of expected everything to have gold leaf on it and TRUMP emblazoned all over the place. Give it time, I guess…

  4. secrick

    When Fla played Duke i watched that game and said i don’t think we can beat either of those teams and now Fla has lost 3 in a row and doesn’t even look like the same team that played Duke. Not sure if there is a great team out there maybe Puke.

    1. RealCatsFan

      Don’t forget that Indiana was hanging with Duke for a while there too. They are far from unbeatable. Remember all the hype around them last year?

    2. ukjaybrat

      still early. duke is the only team left that still looks fairly dominant, but they’ve had some mediocre performances here and there too. what matters is march and i like where we are going.

    3. J-Dub421

      All I know is, Cal has proven time and again that he gets his team ready for March, and I can literally watch our team improve week to week right now. No one will want to play us in March.

  5. runningunnin.454

    Small crowd at the Louisville game last night; have they given up?

    1. ukjaybrat

      didn’t someone say they had $3 tickets ? and still couldn’t fill the lower bowl? that’s pretty pathetic

    2. Realme

      The absurd part is that they didn’t disappear because of yet another major cheating scandal. They disappeared because the university decided to finally try to clean things up (by firing Coach 2 and his boss).

    3. RealCatsFan

      I think they probably drew more people to their women’s volleyball games when they had them at YUM.

    4. chris gettelfinger is not walking through that door

      So UL is now a baseball school.

    5. ClutchCargo

      CG, that’s the spin the fans will try to put on it. Count on that.

  6. sjk0000

    I’d love to know if you guys were rappers what would your rapper name be?

    1. chris gettelfinger is not walking through that door

      Old White Jazzy Jeff

    2. chris gettelfinger is not walking through that door

      And no my real name is not Jeff. 🙂

    3. ukjaybrat

      something super controversial so everyone would talk about it and i would get on TV for my name and not my rapping career. because apparently that’s the new thing these days.

    4. runningunnin.454

      Kra Zeee
      Because I M.

    5. chris gettelfinger is not walking through that door

      Actually, I have a better one:

      Vanilla (Old As The) Ice (Age)

      Okay, I’m really not THAT old, but I did turn 56 today. But I still act immature!!! 😛

    6. ukjaybrat

      happy birthday !

    7. Realme

      Happy Birthday Chris!

    8. RealCatsFan

      Happy B-Day old man! (I can only say that because I am 52)

    9. runningunnin.454

      Happy Birthday CG.
      My next b’day we’re just going to set the damn cake on fire.

    10. chris gettelfinger is not walking through that door

      Thanks fellow Cat fans!

    11. J-Dub421

      Happy Birthday! (Pretend you can hear me singing from three states away.)

    12. chris gettelfinger is not walking through that door

      I can hear you! 🙂

  7. RealCatsFan

    Franken should absolutely resign. I have more respect for someone who owns up to their transgressions and does the right thing and steps down than the ones who lie and deny, even when their lies are proven.

    1. runningunnin.454

      Well, there was a picture.
      Never liked that buffoon Franken; but, when you pose for Playboy…don’t you expect such behavior?

    2. ClutchCargo

      Be careful not to speak the real name of Coach 2 or he will magically appear like Beetlejuice and start lying again.

    3. runningunnin.454

      Think it’s funny every UL game on TV, the announcers are rehashing the whole Pitino thing. Drives the UL fans crazy.

  8. archie926

    Shit, didn’t know you guys were in town today.

  9. RealCatsFan

    The “Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over” Christmas Carol commercial is one of the most annoying commercials I have heard in a while.

  10. Realme

    I listened to a podcast once about the Eagles fans. They were so insane back in the day they put a jail below the stadium.

  11. Realme

    “You set the bed”? Matt does as many Ryanisms as Ryan does.

  12. RealCatsFan

    Ryan’s comment about Sarah Huckabee Sanders reminds me of something that Dave Berry once said. He said no matter how sure you are that a lady is “with child” instead of just “Rubinesque”, do not, DO NOT, comment on her assumed pregnancy unless you actually see a baby emerging from her. Nothing more embarrassing than asking a lady when her baby is due and SHE IS NOT PREGNANT! 😀

    1. RealCatsFan

      Oops, meant Dave Barry.

  13. RealCatsFan

    Wish our Lady Cats Volleyball team wasn’t playing so early tomorrow. No way I can make it to a noon game. Probably won’t be much of a crowd for them. Hope they get it done against BYU, because I will probably be able to make the game on Saturday.

  14. Laker Cat 18

    I just caught the tail end of the discussion. I’m guilty! I’m getting married December 31st.

    1. Realme

      Congrats, LC! Did you schedule the actual time to accomodate UK basketball? 🙂

    2. Laker Cat 18

      I didn’t even look at the UK schedule. With coaching football almost year round, it’s hard to find a date in between all of it. When she picked that date, I didn’t argue. I’m confident we can beat Georgia at home.

    3. runningunnin.454

      At least, you won’t ever forget your anniversary…that’s not a good thing.
