    Coach looks worn out. Stress of the job finally catching up to him? Seemed like he had alot more energy and less gray hairs last year.

    hope we can hold it to 10 losses…..some of our players want their points but with the least effort possible…we wouldnt run unless the PO leece were chasing us

    Maybe Someone Needs 2 Come Up With Refuse 2 Win Shirts 4 This Team. They Seem 2 Make 3~4 Mistakes In The Last 5 Minutes Of Every Close Game On The Road. Its A Good Thing Tournament Games Are At Neutral Sites, Maybe We Will Have A Chance Then.

    Come on folks…..support our team. Do you think they enjoy losing any more than you enjoy watching them lose? Do your part and be good fans. If you can’t do that go play a game of horse with a 5 year old. Then you will not have to worry about losing.

    I dont think it bothers some of the team to lose as long as it doesnt screw up their nba chances….They play lazy most of the game and make stupid, careless, lack of thought or effort mistakes. And some fans are kinda mediocre types.

    Cal looks tired and his responses are the same after every loss………MAKE AN ADJUSTMENT COACH!! Cmon…..what happened to ‘In Cal we trust’?? I hate to say, but that’s not the feeling this year. Questionable strategies and not winning close games…..unacceptable.

    I think it’s funny when I read, ‘Vandy played out of their ass’ or ‘Jenkins was on fire’ or ‘Vandy is a tough place to play’. Does that excuse a loss?? Cmon UK faithful, this is KENTUCKY!!! I love Cal, but this isn’t about Cal, this is about KENTUCKY. We are starting to fall off as one of the elite teams. We have had one great season in the last five….what happened? I honestly don’t think Cal will be here very long….I hate to stir that pot, but its’ true. All the stress of winning at UK, combined with NBA owners constantly in Cal’s ear will become too much eventually. I give Cal 3 more years here. UK basketball just isn’t the same…..and that makes me sad to admit. It’s not just Cal’s fault, so lets not put all the blame on him.

    Ok….I’m done.

    7. Who you got coming in nex year, Blackshear and Behanen. I played Behanen in High school and ill say he was better than me yea but i am 5-10 and white and he sucks balls all he does is drive and lose the ball has no shot what so ever.

    Miller has to step UP!! Like Liggins today.

    3) I agree you could tell he was stressed out by looking at him in that interview, but I don’t think this job is too much for him. We’ve had a lot of bad breaks this year, maybe next year the ball will bounce our way every time and we’ll win all the 2 point games.

    Just wondering, did the guy that made all those great videos last season, I think his name was UKCat8Fan, delete his youtube channel? I cant find any of his videos on youtube. This disappoints me.

    Liggins Is Starting To Show A Little Fire In His Belly. Its A Shame We Dont Have A Bench That Can Give Our Starters A Blow . Its Hard For The Starters To Maintain Intensity Playing 36 ~40 Min A Game.

    I always try to keep things in perspective when it comes to UK losses and wait a bit to form an opinion so I can be rational about it, because as soon as the game ends I’m always way too emotional. After this loss, however, I have had to take off the blue glasses and be realistic.

    I love Cal and I think he is the best coach around and we are lucky to have him. Last year was magical and our team was amazing. Next year we should be a beast and the future from there on looks bright. But this years team is just not a very good team and we have to accept that. They are not horrible but they are extremely flawed and the freshmen, while talented, are not in the super elite category of last years’ frosh.

    When I look at it honestly, a review of the likely performance of this team will have been a disappointment even given the players we lost and the imprisonment of Enes. No SEC reg season title, no SEC tourny title, and a second round exit from the dance. On the bright side, I think Knight and Lamb are likely to return now and that sets up a supreme team for next year. This year is just hard to swallow given last years magical run.

    #16 Let’s not concede the SEC Tournament Championship. Kentucky has lost 4 games by deuce and 2 by 7 points or less and in both of these games at Georgia and at Vandy Kentucky took a lead only to fall behind due to key late turnovers. I still think we have a good shot at winning the SEC Tournament for once the game is played on neutral sites. I also think this team will get things turned around like UNC did at the right time instead of losing to teams by couple of possessions they will start winning close by few possessions. Kentucky will be dangerous team on the neutral floor we are 3-1 as long as that two little ‘AT’ is not in front of the teams we play we will be alright. A young team going into NCAA tournament with less expectations could bode well for them as well.

    Someone go tell #11 he’s an idiot. Hey moron the one good season that your talking about is only one we have finished with Cal. I love it when people think they have a clue and they start bashing a coach who’s only year took an NIT team to the great season we had last year. Please start banning idiots like that. The last thing a young struggling team needs some body like that in their ear.

    Notice all the nay sayers show up on this site soon after a lose. If you can’t stand the cats go watch someone else. If they won every game, you would still find something to cry about. Come March you will forget all about these games. GO CATS, see you Tuesday night.

    #11. You are an idiot. Those questioning their effort are ignorant. I have the game taped and if you would like to come watch it with me again, it can be arranged. Does losing at Vandy really surprise anyone? The Ole Miss lose was horrible. All the other L’s are can be forgiven. Hey, we may lose 10 this year. This team can lose in the second round or make a run to another elte 8. No excuses, I expect to win all of them, but let’s all be rashionable!

    Would love to see a stat on the number of players that have put up their career or season high against UK. Seems like we get that over and over and over and over.

    11) hang in there……We got good fans. Some of us are frustrated and just want the tradtion of excellence to continue. This place is good therapy. Most suggestions are meant to help. Hoods good.

    All of ya’ll on here suck. I believe the majority of you complaining on here are just complete idiots. Just dont support the team you ungrateful. This is just retarded to read these comments after all of ya’ll are praising Calipari because we are losing close road games with this team you want to talk about Cal won’t be here for long, ya’ll are so stupid and disgraceful to being a fan of Kentucky.

    I think a lot of the bashing is from young dummies who haven’t been UK fans for a very long time. I’m born and raised in KY. I’m educated, wealthy and not a hic. Been a fan for 30 years. I love UK and yes, even when we loose. I want to win all of our games but it doesn’t happen. Loosing is part of the process.

    Right now we need stability, for Cal to stay as long as possible. Anyone who can’t see that is blind.

    Its time Calipari gets kids who have heart. If these kids had the heart of Louisville Basketball coupled with Kentuckys talent, we would be unstoppable. Unfortunately, we have no heart and are at best an average ball club. Louisville Basketball will go much further this year. Tired of Cals excuses here.
    Time Cal believes winning the SEC is important. Obviously the players here him on this.
