    I see no real need to nice to Dakich. That being said, ask the turd why his team rushed the court if it wasn’t an upset? I don’t watch Hoosier basketball, so maybe they do this all the time, it’s their thing. That’s why they wear those ridiculous pants, the are candy strippers. They can administer first aid when they knock people down.

    Whether or not you have a good conversation with Dakich depends on how much blow he’s done today. Or maybe it’s meth. Hoosiers are dirty, and they live for methamphetamine.

    Matt, advertisers are fickle beasts. They are incredibly happy…until they aren’t. You have to document everything you do/don’t do in terms of fulfilling an agreement, or risk breach of contract.

    You have to understand her position of actually asking for the money for what you do/don’t do. Of course they are nice to you, you’re the talent.

    Matt, the only reason it would ever be ok for UK fans to storm the floor at Rupp is if the National Championship game were there and we won it. Otherwise NO! (since it will never be at Rupp, obviously my answer is NO)

    Rushing the Court Story – I believe it was the very first game for the ERupption Zone. Bogens made a game winning three against Athlets in Action in an exhibition game. The moron behind me tried to get the rest of students to storm the court and I and about 20 other people looked at him with disgust and told him to his A** down and shut up.

    The way Rupp is set up it would take 10 minutes for the students to get to the floor. The best part of storming the court is how fast the people get out there and like JT said the adrenaline of the moment. UK’s student section would have to climb over Cutler’s mustache. The funniest thing would be listening to Rob Bromley call it live.

    To all the dense UK fans. Did you listen to Dakich on the show last week? The most important thing he said, to give insight as to why IU beating UK would not be an upset, was when he said IU did not have to do anything they were not capable of doing. They did not need a Dwayne McClain on crack moment. They did not need to shoot 85%, or hit 15 three pointers. He spoke about Watford, the improvement of Sheehey and Oladipo. I don’t think he mentioned verdell Jones or Hulls being key factors (although Hulls had a nice shooting day). I think he also mentioned the crowd, and Assembly Hall, and how that would play in the Hoosiers favor, and how UK was a young team, and that this environment, with freshmen, could affect how they play. He was spot on with his assessment.

    The funny thing is, you guys are more concerned with him saying it is not an upset, versus being upset at the outcome of the game. “Hey dagnabbit! Don’t tell ME what an upset is, ya Hoosier MO-RON!” Must be plenty of UK fans that are a little lighter in the wallet after having “taken advantage” of the lowly 4 point spread!

    He is hard to listen to this is why indianna should have been off the schedule…. They talk malicious trash before the game and call us poor losers afterwards failing to realize that we literally do/did more for their program than their entire roster and Tom crean put together.

    We win… We were supposed to and it’s not even worth talking about, they win and they are talked about nationally more than they would be if they paid for the coverage…we simply helped them to be relevant and have to eat non stop crow for it. That’s what makes the loss hard to take for me

    Go back and watch the game. Kidd-Gilchrist took 2 and one half steps on his dunk where his last dribble was at the arc (tied the game at 12)…he didn’t mention your Freshman’s first non call foul when he got Zeller full on the hand and no ball (about 15:00 minute mark)…plenty of calls one could argue both ways brother. Those charging calls? That’s call coaching and preparation on IU’s part, and that’s called whiney b*tch on UK fans part.

    Not going to slam Dakich. He offers very good analysis, is passionate and opinionated. He’ll get better if he quits trying so hard to be something he’s not. He’s not naturally polarizing, but tries really hard.

    Not an upset-

    Indiana did NOT have to perform at a level that was over their heads, that they were not capable of doing night in and night out.

    They shot 43% from the field
    They did out rebound, but not by much
    They turned the ball over…it’s not like they played a flawless game, or did things that were EXTRA-ORDINARY. As MATT JONES SAID, they beat them STRAIGHT UP. Something after watching film, he thought they were capable of doing.

    Not that hard to figure out.

    289 scott.

    First of all, you’ve got to be kidding that it wasn’t an upset or that IU didn’t play over their heads for this game. That’s the most ridiculous statement I’ve heard. You could just look at their faces to see this was a big game for them.

    Aside from that:

    They got the benefit of ANY questionable call or non-call – at least four glaring instances. Not that you should expect calls to go your way on the road, but several bad calls/non-calls led to significant point swings. Kentucky had a run in the first half that was all but ended by the officiating.
    They fed off the crowd which would not happen anywhere else.
    What was their three point percentage?
    Crean won a total of 28 games at IU coming into this season, so IU was not on the radar for UK players like a UNC or a UConn.

    Not hard to figure out, but you keep trying 😉

    In what statistical category did IU play over their heads? They are a three point shooting team. News flash. Hulls? he can shoot. Watford, Sheehey…so can they. They turned the ball over a ton, they missed a lot of gimmes early (as did UK). They shot close to the same number of free throws…it was lopsided early…but I’m telling you, foul #1 on your boy was missed at about the 15:00 minute mark. Nothing but Zeller’s hand. This game was well away from being decided by the refs, and more about IU executing and doing what they are capable of doing. If IU isn’t on your radar, that’s on UK, and on your coach. But I guarantee they were on Cal’s radar. But that is what Dakich is speaking about. Freshamn, coming into a hostile environment, the likes of which they had not seen, would play a role. Damn right they fed off the crowd. You think Dakich doesn’t realize that this thing probably goes down differently in Rupp?

    Also, no one is disputing, it WAS a big game. It WAS a great win. Dakich gives a crap about Vegas, but you would have thought, by the way KY fans speak, that this was a 20 point line. It was FOUR POINTS. Any game that has that types of spread, as a home dog, you pull it out? It isn’t even an upset by Vegas standards.

    Definition of an upset:

    Higher-ranked team loses to less-ranked, or unranked, team. IU beating UK was the upset of the year.



  302. he says she
    12:52 pm December 15, 2011 Permalink

    300. It was actually 6.5 at game time I think, but that’s irrelevant. It was an upset… and good for IU. Why did fans rush the court if it wasn’t an upset????

    60+% three point shooting is playing over your head. I don’t care what you say, it just is. If Kentucky shot 60% for an entire game (3 pointers and 2 pointers), I would say they played over their head in that catagory.

    As for the refs taking the game away, you’re right — UK should have fought through that… and they did to a certain degree. Again, the whistle should always be in favor of the home team. Having said that, there was a point in the first half where UK was leading and looking like they could run away with the game. You could sense it. I could sense it and you could see it in the IU crowd reactions… or lack thereof. Whether it was a ball going out-of-bounds or a collision or a ticky-tack call. They all went against UK. At that point, I could tell UK was in for a long night because not one of those type calls went their way. It happens, but it did hurt UK gaining any momentum they had gained.

  304. scott

    303-6.5 at game time because of all the cash put down by UK fans….the 2002 run that IU made…they got down early and caught fire late. Did it versus Kent State, and did it versus Duke…made 12-15 3’s per game in those games. But that isn’t lucky, that’s playing to your strength. Some guys CAN shoot, and if you don’t guard them, you’re gonna get burned. Sheehey got a nice/lucky bounce on one three, but the others were bottom of the net. Funny coming from a program that lived and died on the three with Pitino. We took FIFTEEN THREES…they didn’t launch 30 of them…they didn’t “live and die” behind the arc. The three point shot is part of the game…I think IU is top 5 in shooting the 3 in terms of %. Your coach had access to all this information, be ticked at him/team for not guarding it better, or give IU credit for creating and taking sound shots. What was up with your big guy passing them up? Vitale said he’s a shooter, and should have let it fly…but hey, those are the types of plays that Dakich would count on in that environment with your team. Also-not shooting many really skews the % too. 8/15 is 53%, 7/15 is 46%. Don’t be a hater 😉
