Cal: “We have a couple of guys that are not real coachable”

As excepted, Cal is not holding back in his postgame press conference. When it comes down to it, Cal said: “We have a couple of guys that are not real coachable.”

During the game, it was reported that Cal yelled “I can’t coach you” at Archie Goodwin, and he had another exchange with Alex Poythress in the second half. Things got so bad that Cal didn’t even sit in on the last huddle: “I’m not wasting my breath here. (They’re) not listening.”

“If they weren’t embarrassed enough by this to come to me and say, ‘What do you want us to do?’ then they shouldn’t be at Kentucky.

Stole the words right out of my mouth.

    #2- are you kidding? if anything, Cal has shouldered TOO MUCH of the blame all season, telling anyone and everyone how much he likes his team and pointing to himself as the person who needs to figure out how to get them to gel together. i think a 30 point drubbing is more than reason enough to call a couple players’ coachability into question.

    A good coach needs to use his bench as motivation.
    A great coach makes sure he has an adequate bench to use.

    UK has no such bench. Who gets the blame for that when the cubbard’s bare?

    @2 Didn’t take him long? We’re 25 games into the season (81% of regular season games) and he’s been telling us “I like this team” the entire time. Didn’t take him long?

    Geez we have some dumbass fans. I am sure Cal “coaches” Archie to continually charge and play for himself. He also taught Poythress to give 1/4 ass effort. It was one of Cal’s goals to start a walk-on at PG when he got hired. He repeatedly tells Wiltjer to move like he has cinder block feet in practice too. Bunch of morons, he just led a team to a National Title, and I am sure he regrets recruiting a couple of these selfish assholes. But bitching about it and acting like he’s suddenly forgotten how to coach isn’t going to do shit. Only thing a UK fan can do at this point is count the days until this season ends and hope the trio of Poythress, Goodwin, and Harrow are never heard from again.

    14) That’s actually a really great comparison. Goodwin does remind me of Rhodes when I think about it. Both were overhyped coming into college, and never improved after playing in college. And we all know what kind of stellar basketball career Rhodes ended up having!

    If these kids aren’t embarrassed enough to get it, then these kids just don’t care enough about themselves, their teammates or the team to ever get it. I hope to God they honestly have other plans in life because they will never make it in the Pros at least not for very long with their attitudes. This is a whole new level of immature !!

    Give me a damn break, throwing players under the bus!!! That’s total BS, Cal accepts more than any coach I’ve ever seen when his players are complete screw ups on & off the floor…There just comes a time when you have to call it what it is and that’s what he’s done. He’s tried every way possible to get in Archie & Alex’s heads and nothing has worked so he might as well just try this tactic now to get them to listen…Both guys suck, plain and simple, only things they have going for them is Archie is explosive & explodes right into a stupid ass play every chance he gets, and Alex looks like he should be able to play but doesn’t give 2 shits about doing it….I love UK and I don’t want to be coming down on them like some crazy ass fan, but at this point in the season if they were gonna learn anything it would be showing and it’s not showing at all…They can both hit the road, WCS, Wiltjer and the rest will be fine, Archie & Alex look like lost causes to me.

    Yea what a moron Cal is for recruiting a team of great players that r good enough to win a national championship then go play in the nba. If only he had enough sense to only recruit a group of decent players last year that might have gotten to the sweet 16 they would have come back this year and we could have beaten tenn by 7 and would have another sweet 16 to look forward too. Cal your such an idiot!

    The bottom line is Goodwin is either really, really dumb or he isn’t coachable and refuses listen. Why he would believe doing it “his way” is the best way kina makes me lean towards dumb. Everyone in the state of KY cringes every time he drives the lane. He hasn’t learned anything since the season began and honestly I don’t see him learning anything the rest of the season either.

    Poythress is another story. You can’t teach heart or effort and Poythress as consistently proved that he has neither.

    I just hope there’s someone, somewhere out there that can convice these guys that they will get drafted. If these guys continue on their current path, I would prefer that they not stick around and spread this disease to next years team.

Why we’re not zoning a team like UT that shot only 5 three pointers the WHOLE game? Why does he encourage Goodwin to drive all the time and charge or get his shot blocked into the 2nd row?

    Half of the people on here need to learn how to think for themselves. Cal is not coaching the same style he has for the past 2 seasons. It’s all post up with no perimeter shooting, and then we wonder why we have 25 turnovers.



  45. oldschool
    4:21 pm February 16, 2013 Permalink

    42 – look juvenile – more and more people are starting to see the truth. You MUST have depth. This team more than any in Calipari’s brief UK tenure – needs depth. It’s unrealistic to expect 18-year-olds to come in and play 30 plus minutes and be successful.

    Poythress can be a really good player at UK – but he needs to be gradually acclimated to Division I college basketball. Many UK fans are starting to see this – and to toss out some 7th-grade level insult shows just how childish many of you on this board are.



  46. Samtheman

    Well, we all were wondering how the team would respond to Noel’s injury. We got our answer today. Cal and the assts. have been spot on in evaluating the prospects/recruits wherever they’ve been. I can’t believe they have missed on not only some of their abilities but their desire/drive/effort/heart…whatever you want to call it. The one-and-done situation has only compounded the issue. If I were Cal, I couldn’t wait to get rid of some of them. Help them out the door to the NBA. Next group in.

    #16 and #40 are likely the same person . . . and was a 5’9 250 third-string center on the Caverna High Colonels JV team 35 years ago. His claim to fame was going 1-for-2 from the charity stripe with one offensive board in 3 minutes of action against arch nemesis Hart County.

What happens for the rest of the year will be interesting to watch. I expect there will be some playing for a roster spot next year. I agree that this is a very young team but at this point in the season, you have to man up and play the game as a team.

    I’m sure glad we have so many people on here claiming to follow UK who just bash away at our guys. Cal wasn’t holding back in his press conference…he didn’t suddenly forget how to coach–he has some kids who are having alot of trouble getting “it”. I’m not happy with this year–but I won’t call out a guy who has took us to an Elite 8, a Final Four, and Natl title. If you are you are either a troll or unrealistic. I’ll remember all this junk next year when we are smoking fools by 30……and don’t come back to the bandwagon then.

    Maybe it is time for coach to post the famous words of Richard Madison, something like “I am waiting until the NBA before I really show you what I can do.” I did not follow it, but I can not remember any highlights from his Pro career, nice guy though.



  69. mudcreekmark

    I really think a lot of the criticism comes because these players are being touted as high NBA draft picks.Still after all these terrible games that they have played, you look at the mock drafts and they still have Goodwin and Poythress going in the top ten to fifteen picks. And many of them have WCS as high as eleven or at least in the first round. If these players are supposedly so good then how can they get beat by 30 by a team as bad as Tennessee? That plus the fact they keep making the same mistakes over and over and over and over and over again.

    I hope they declare. I hope they hire agents. Because if they don’t they’ll come back and screw with the chemistry of another team. Bring back Wiltjer with some good guards that can create shots for him. Bring back a stronger WCS. Maybe Noel will want to return to help reboots his stock after the knee injury. Cal will learn to more thoroughly research the coachability of his high end prospects. He’s a fast learner, and after the heat of the NIT which the blue birds will throw his way, he won’t make the same mistake twice.

    I just listened to the post game interview, he didn’t throw anyone under the us, he told the truth. Now It’s on the players to buy in, work hard, and execute…. Like Cal has said before, he doesn’t have a magic wand, you have to work in order to be successful. A 24 hr facility to practice on your game yet only a couple guys use it because they have seen a couple mock drafts with their names on it. All 5* players aren’t the same. I hope next yrs guys play and work like last years guys. I’m still riding with this team, but the have to listen in order for them to get better as a team.

    One thing if I were Cal, I would seriously think twice about taking kids from the programs that Archie, Alex, and Ryan came from in the future. They definitely did not learn good fundamentals on their high school/AAU teams. Kentucky is not where basic, fundamental basketball should have to be taught.

I coached youth ball and made sure the kids knew I would rather lose without you than with you if you had attitude etc. In this case you can lose with them or without them but you still play them. Sit them a game or three and see if it sinks in.

    We all know they are young…BUT Goodwin , Poythress do not seem to want to listen !!This man has coached alot of guys. He should have called a few of them out earlier , but he wouldnt!!!!! He does care about them , so he feels obligated to shield them. We will come back next year!!

    Yeah, Harrow and Goodwin need to improve their play. Even they couldn’t possibly deny it. But for fans to say they shouldn’t even be at UK is ridiculous. Like it or not, they will forever be Wildcats and if they manage to make it to the NBA or if they play overseas Big Blue Nation will be rooting for them to do well. For those who say they won’t, if you want someone to do bad in their future, then you really need to relax. No kidding. We need to cheer for these guys to do well even more than ever. They just lost one of their brothers to a season-ending injury and the last thing they need is people saying crazy things to them. They can still be a good team. They have still have good players and a good coach. Goodwin and Harrow haven’t been playing up to their potential. If they want UK to do better, they must step up. And do it right now. Only 6 games left in the regular season so the turn around must happen now. UK will go as Harrow and Goodwin goes and if we tear them apart from the team now then we can kiss the rest of the season goodbye. There isn’t too many more things more embarrassing than UK going to the friggin NIT. Harrow and Goodwin will be Wildcats forevermore and I am sure they would love to be a beloved member Big Blue Nation. Wouldn’t it be better to want to cheer for them the rest of this season and enjoy the success this team can still achieve than hate on them and be miserable and embarrassed while UK fails?

    Archie made stupid plays but at least you can see that he’s trying – if he can learn to shoot a mid range floater, see the court better. However, Poythress and Harrow just stand and watch and gave the least effort-translate to not much heart or no fighting spirit! I would not draft Poythress; he would be a bust!

    These guys came to UK to be coached by Cal to learn the game, be pushed to be the best, win championships, & get to the NBA. In the past not all players listened to Cal at first but when they did their game changed for the better!

    We need Wall, Cousins, Bledsoe, Knight, Davis, Jorts, etc to talk with this group of players , not a team yet, to focus on listening to Cal and more importantly learn to trust each other and play like UK Wildcats play!

    Goodwin and Poythress are coach-able and to throw these young men under the bus are unacceptable. Do we think Cal coached Derrick Rose, John Walls, Demarcus Cousins and some of the other highly rated freshmen that was recruited to KY. No!!! Cal wins on talent, not his coaching abilities. Now, it’s time to coach and he’s frustrated because he can’t. This recruiting class does not have the talented individuals as the past. The John Walls, Derrick Rose, and Tyreke Evans are not graduating from high school every year. The moment the one-and-done rule is removed, so will Cal be from KY.
