Angry Coach Cal Wants Afternoon Notes and Podcast

(Photovia 30FPS)

— Coach Cal was pretty angry during most of the Dominican Republic’s game against Venezula today. Cal’s chicos trailed by 11 entering the fourth quarter, but they came back to pull off the comeback win. The Dominicans won 92-89 to bring their record to 2-0 at the FIBA Americas Championship. That’s worth four points if you’re scoring at home. Al Horford led the team in scoring again with 19. Dominican Ben Wallace recorded another double-double with 18 point and 14 rebounds.

— We’re nearing the 24-hour mark before kickoff and only 29,000 tickets have been sold for tomorrow night’s game. That’s not enough to fill up half of LP Field. C’mon, people! And don’t give me that “work” excuse. Get your priorities straight. It’s football season.

Ricardo Ledo postponed his announcement again. Providence was supposed to be the school he committed to today. I wonder if he wants to see Big Blue Madness first? Everyone else will be there.

— Tennessee basketball received its first commitment of 2012 from Derek Reese, a 6-foot-8 wing player from Orlando. Tennessee beat out Murray State, Georgia Southern, and Rider for Reese’s commitment. Cuonzo Martin is getting it done down there in Knoxville.

— In other Tennessee news, Scotty Hopson signed a deal in Greece with Kolossos Rhodes. All UT hatred aside, the story of Scotty Hopson sitting in a car outside the NBA draft is pretty sad. I watched Scotty whoop up on my Maroons a couple times in high school and I really wanted him to come to UK. He was an unbelievable talent at UHA.

— Matt and Ryan Lemond spent the first hour talking about rest areas and good places to poop. Coincidentally, today the state announced that it will put fruit and healthy options in vending machines at rest stops. Still waiting for lavatory upgrades…

    Play for Kentucky and go in the lottery or go elsewhere and sit in your car outside.

    Your choice kid.

    Quite frankly, I hope the football game is UNDER ATTENDED so UK won’t pull this crap again. Football isn’t Basketball, there are only 12 games all year and at least four of our conference games have to be held away from home. That gives you at BEST 8 chances to see the team play at home each year. To waste one of those games against a subpar opponent in Nashville is lame.

    Frankly, the idea of an “away” game with Western was not a good one… I rather hope the game is under attended so UK won’t pull a stunt like this again.

    The Tennessee basketball commit sounds like our football commits.

    I’m surprised 29,000 people are going. Its the most pointless home game of all time. Maybe if no one goes they won’t pull this 9:15-on-a-Thursday-Night-3-Hours-From-Campus-home-game-against-a-team-we’ve-already-beaten-twice-in-three-seasons-by-a-combined-total-of-73-points shit again.

    Do many UK fans still dislike Hopson? Personally I have no ill feelings towards him even though he went to Tennessee. It was probably for the best that we didn’t get him, and he ended up with a pitiful record against UK (1-6) so he never did much damage to us. He definitely wasn’t a likable player but he’s still from Kentucky and I’d like to see him do well.

    Is it weird that the Hopson story is making me want to root for him to succeed? God, what is wrong with me?

    Geez, where are the fans from Western Kentucky? 29K? That’s embarrassing. They did alot better with the game against Miami, Ohio in Cincinnati. I think they should drop Western and Play University of Cincinnati at Paul Brown Stadium to start the year. Heck, that game would sell out. Split the tickets 50/50.

    Question: anyone think that Coach Cal is doing this Dominican coaching thing in order to boost his resume for a head coaching gig?

    If Scotty would have went to Kentucky he would be in the NBA.

    Terrible decision by the Athletic Dept. They took for granted we would go to Nashville at 9:15 on a Thursday night for a weak opponent. Where are all the Western fans?

    toooo many basketball followers…..look, the Cats are playing, you show and and represent. We do it all the time!! What’s wrong…is it the economy??? get sun poisoning this summer?? It’s football, it’s outside, it’s UK and if you can’t have a good time in Nash-Vegas then you’ve been posting web comments too much. Get off your butts and support the Cats!

    Poor Scotty. Cannot much blame him for not wanting to play for Billy Clyde now can we? However hindsight being 20-20 I bet if he knew after 2 years that arse would be gone and Calipari would take the reigns..I bet he would have set on a toilet in exchange for a draft selection.

    Hey Drew,
    Any chance you could put Hour 1 above Hour 2 when you post these podcasts? After you get done listening to Hour 1 of today’s show it rolls into Hour 2 of the previous day’s show. You have to click the back button and play hour 2 from today’s show to listen to it in order.

    Really hate it for Scotty! He was great his senior year at UHA. He is really a nice kid. He had alot of pressure in Hopkinsville to go to UT, plus Tubby and Gillespie didn’t seem to want him! Hope he does well and gets an NBA shot!
