    Been trying to find this answer but no luck – When can UK play another set of exhibition games like they did with Knight’s team in Canada? Would be great to happen again this summer!

    Also, predicting UK breaks their own record in the 2014 draft with 8 players being taken (maybe in first round)after going 40 – 0 and bringing home #9

    Harrison Twins
    James Young
    Andrew Wiggins
    Nerlens Noel
    Lee
    Poythress
    Goodwin

    I have accepted the fact that this year is not going to be anything Great, but I would be lying to myself if I would say it doesn’t bother me. I don’t think I would be a TRUE UK fan if it didn’t bother me. I have loosened up a little, and STILL hope they can pull it together and get what these kids deserve. I still think we have just as much talent as a lot of teams, but, I have found myself saying this all year, just waiting…….. I won’t give it up, but if we do NOT step up tonight and make a statement, I have to think it’s a wrap. I watched ALOT of footage of Poythress, Goodwin, Cauley & Noel before they got here and KNEW that this class wasn’t as good as last, BUT I DID SEE how good these 4 players COULD BE and I guess what bothers me the most is, I feel like Goodwin, Poythress & Cauley OWE IT TO THEIRSELVES to go down fighting. PROVE TO THE FANS, to yourself, to the HATERS that they ARE and CAN be one of the better teams this year. #WEAREUK

    So first, let me say I’d not rather have any other coach that Cal and I love the program he has installed at UK, but last night I was debating the following with myself.

    Is it better to build the way Cal does or Crean does? I hate IU, but just using them as an example since they are having success right now. In Cal’s case you give yourself the potential to have incredibly talented teams that are like the 2010 and 2012 teams. You also have highs and lows. Seems a little risky b/c in those seasons with the better teams, seems like there is much more pressure to make sure you win that year.
    In the Crean model at IU, it seems like they built up a more traditional program where they stunk for a few years but if they continue to bring in Top 5-10 classes now, it seems like there is more consistency. Less chance of having a stellar year, but more chance to have a shot at championship each year.

    Just curious. Seems like an interesting debate. Remember, I love Cal an UK, but I think it is a rational question.

    Some of the best music in recent memory came out in the 90’s. Nirvana, Pearl Jam, STP, Alice in Chains, Soundgarden, Sublime, Red Hot Chilli Peppers, et. al. – haven’t seen a string of bands come out in the same time span since then. Today’s music = no comparison, IMO.

    HA Hell no. Sweet 16 should be the minimum. That might sound crazy, but we are UK. Not saying we have to get to Final 4 every year but we should always be good enough to get to Sweet 16, with exception to running into a crazy upset game that could happen in the tourney.

    38, UNC would likely be called a “more traditional program”, and they are sucking the hind teat as well. Up and down seasons happen in college BB. Far too early to point the finger at Cal’s system, but I think he has clearly seen the need to develop more of a bench, and I think you will see some adjustments to his recruiting philosophy.

    2007- Florida Won National Title

    Lost: Corey Brewer, Taurean Green, Al Horford, Lee Humphrey, Joakim Noah, Chris Richard

    2008- Lost 12 games, went to NIT

    2008-2009- North Carolina Won Title

    Lost: Larry Drew, Wayne Ellington, Bobby Frasor, Marcus Ginyard, Tyler Hansbrough

    2009- Lost 13 games- Went to NIT

    2011-2012 – UK Won Title

    Lost: Anthony Davis, Terrence Jones, Marquis Teague, Doron Lamb, MKG and Darius Miller

    #42 Just to clarify, I’m not trying to point the finger at Cal’s system. I love bringing in the best players available each year. Just curious if you get more stability and greater chance at championship each year if you bring in guys that aren’t for sure one and done. Seems inherently more risky. Obviously with higher risk, there’s more reward. Again just some food for thought.

    Again, I’d take Cal over anyone and I’m very happy with what he’s done thusfar at UK even if we do stink this year.

    44 – TRUE, I MEAN WE LOST 6 PLAYERS TO THE NBA, If Duke lost 6 players and they were on the verge of going to the NIT, would everyone be so hard on them, or would it be, O well everyone has a “bridge” year.

    The one and done does give the fanbase a belief that they can win it every year. With the 4 year plan Louisville has they have one year to do what we do every year every 4 years. The problem when they don’t succeed they have to wait another 4 years to be back. We will be back on top next year. Have no fear #BELIEVE BLUE

  76. Jennifer
    10:44 am February 20, 2013 Permalink

    Matt,
    We have to remember these guys are kids. Athletes put an enormous amount of pressure on themselves to perform. I’ve seen this over and over with my own daughter who play bball. They are not going out there trying to blow it. They want to perform well, but sometimes the pressure mounts and is just too much. No matter how hard they try, it doesn’t equate on the court. Think about it–coach pressure, fan pressure, media pressure. I think it’s in their head now. I hope they can pull it together and get their confidence back where it needs to be.

    Now I’ve seen the footage of Nerlen’s injury a 100 times and I’ve got a suggestion for Florida concerning their basketball facilities. It’s time to update the goals from practice goals to game day goals. Those goals are really close to the baseline and will continue to hurt players.

    #50 – Cal’s 4 seasons at UK: 09-10 team had 3 losses and made it to the Elite 8 (one horrendous shooting night away from probably winning the Nat’l Championship that year); 10-11 team went to the Final Four; 11-12 team had 2 losses and were Nat’l Champs. 12-13 team, while “struggling” is still set to have a first round bye in the SEC tourney. SO, it would seem there’s far more support for Cal’s system than evidence against it. With exception to this year (so far), he has clearly/consistently put teams on the floor that have had exceptional chances of winning it all. I haven’t checked the facts, but UK may be the only team to at least reach the Elite 8 for each of the last 3 years.



  87. ky_99

    I honestly feel the problem with this team started with ESPN all access show. The Archie Goodwin wink sums it all up. They felt Nat’l Champions were attached to them from the get go and came out and realized teams couldn’t wait to get a piece of them. The whole show got under every teams skin and they have been ready to knock out the Cats from the get go.

    #56 That’s a fair point. So do the fans then need to adjust their mentality and put a high focus on the incoming class talent level? Basically, do we need to adjust our thinking to expect that in a given year where there is a talent dip in h/s that we are going to struggle the following year? Again, just food for thought.

    As for IU, I think they are bringing in another Top 5 or Top 10 class next year. They’ll be “down” from this year but if you bring in Top 5-10 classes each year and develop those players over 2-3 years will the program maintain a higher level of constant success? You’ll have droughts still in those down years for h/s classes, but you’ll have guys in the program to hold you up so the drop isn’t as far.

    Again, just curious about all this. I think Cal’s option has higher high’s and lower low’s but the Crean style has more consistency, but the highs aren’t as high.

    #75 & #86. I understand that thought process and please know I’m not bashing Cal. I love the system he has here. Feel like I’m repeating this a lot but just to make everyone understand I’m not saying Cal’s system is wrong.

    I think if we look at Cal’s 4 years so far and use Matt’s logic of the tourney being random, we look at the season and postseason as 2 different things. So the Wall and Davis years success in both reg season, and in Knight and Noel seasons, not much success in reg season. In postseason, obviously the Knight and Davis years were better.

    But I don’t think we can look at the Wall team and say well they just had a bad shooting day so they were a success and then say, well Knight year got lucky to get out of first round, so they were a success. We could easily be looking at 2 years of Final Fours and 2 years of 1st round or worse.

    I guess my real question is, if we are all in on this style, don’t we kind of have to give a pass to Cal in the down years if the incoming talent isn’t good? Even if they are highly ranked, if the h/s talent level isn’t that great, do we have to give Cal a pass? It just seems like we have to see it coming so what do we expect Cal to do in this system if the incoming talent isn’t very high? Basically, do we have to take the bad and accept it, knowing the good is less than a year away?

    Matt and the Crew – you all give Harrow absolutely zero credit. It’s like you have completely forgotten the stretch of the season where he was hands down our 2nd best player. From the Lipscomb game to the 2nd Auburn game he averaged 13 points per game and our team went 11-3 in that stretch. Our biggest win so far, at Ole Miss, he hit the biggest shot of the game. Give the kid some credit, without him we would be a lot worse.

    Speaking of IU, did anyone see Crean’s temper tantrum when they called the (obviously) flagrant foul on Watford in the game last night? What a diva! And then later, Quasimodo (i.e. Zeller) faked a shot to the jewels, doubling over in mock agony and looking back at the ref for a call. When they reviewed the play, it was obvious that he was faking, so nothing was called – no foul. Two examples of douchebaggery that make me root against the Hoosiers every time!

If I were a 5-star player with all the hype around me as these kids did at the 1st of the year, I would step up and out play him, because I’ll be honest with ya, Polson might not have as much upside as these kids, but if you didn’t know these players as good as we do, you wouldn’t know it.

    I grew up, literally 3 houses down from Brian Littrell and his family. Kevin, his cousin, was very nice to me and my brothers when he visited. We are close to the same age and would play ball together when we were growing up. Once they were in BSB, Brian would come home and have security block off the court where we lived. This was really for their safety because there were a ton of girls lining the sidewalk to get a glimpse of them. Trust me, knowing them really helped in high school if you know what I mean.

    You must be really trying to help your numbers with women.
    You are seriously 1000x nicer to them than any guy that calls in, besides john short.

    You start smack talking the “Pride of Nicholasville” Polson and some people just get upset.

    It pains me to say this, but Victor Oladipo is absolutely amazing! I wish he played for a different team so that I could root for him. The kid is really good.

    When filling out your brackets, don’t overlook St. Louis!! They absolutely took it to VCU and beat the tar out of Butler this year. That team has fantastic Guard Play and is a legit contender. I wouldn’t want to play them!

    Matt, caller was right on, Cal was doing individual workouts with both Archie and Alex. So, what happened?, you get individual workouts with a great coach and you dont improve or show EFFORT, WTH?

    I think you have to play Harrow over Polson if you want to possibly be at your best. You can’t have passive Harrow playing though. If I was Calipari I would demand that Ryan shoot the ball a lot. When he is aggressive, he usually plays well.

    I wonder if Stan Heath will also get a letter of allegations this week? Something like that could be enough of a distraction for Mizzou to help the Cats out a little bit on Saturday.

    To be honest Matt, I would think you know why he doesn’t like you. You have called him out on your show many times before.

    He’s on a Louisville show making a joke about a Kentucky guy.

    Lamb, Miller, Jones, Teague, MKG, Davis — While some may have been more important that others, all of these guys had a big role in winning the championship.

    The ESPN Roadshow came to Two Keys in 1997 and Billy Reed and Charley Steiner were interviewing people for the show. I was bartending for the “VIP” section and met him, even did a shot with Mel Turpin. Fun event to work.

    251- that and the fact when he started his call he said “im a UofL fan”

    But you’re right, and it drives me up the wall when “UK” fans do it (Im looking at you – old people!!)



  255. Ryne
    11:59 am February 20, 2013 Permalink

    woah!!! Lamb was the key returning piece. Miller was the second best returning piece. You gotta have that outside threat. With Miller you didn’t know when he was going to show up. Jones was almost non-existent. Davis and MKG were huge as well, but Lamb was the KEY piece

    Matt, hindsight being 20/20, what the flaw was in Cal’s one and done system this year was not to have enough talent left on the roster to compensate for the weakness in this years recruiting class. Although having the top rated class, the talent was down this year and that it why the draft is going to be weak also. In years past(and the future hopefully also)the top class has been talented enough to conquer experience, this years class not so much, and with no help left on the roster it was a recipe for a down year(even with a healthy Noel).

    #38, Next time you debate ask yourself these questions…
    What has Crean ever won?
    How many final 4’s does Crean have?
    What has Cal won?
    How many final 4’s does Cal have?

    Short debate when you consider those questions!

    #38. I agree with #260. Also, wait until this point next year and ask the same questions you have. You can’t completely change an opinion on Cal after one average season with his track record. What would you have said in year 3 for Crean. He’s barely above .500 at IU.
