    We should call him The Mouth.

    Dude from Michigan could have gone to the rim instead of shooting this weak floater… Damn. Two close games in which UNC and Duke get lucky? Terrible day.

    I love Liggins too, regardless of whether or not that is, in fact, what he’s saying….but if it is, I love him just a little more. Hilarious. Go Cats.

    Michigan player could have kicked it to the guy under the rim for a dunk.

    The Pukies have nothing to be proud about. Coach Rat Face owes those three refs a nice dinner tonight at the very least.

    Did anyone else notice Flowers do the robot when they announced WVU on the selection show? Would’ve been classic if one of our guys would have done the robot in his face after the game yesterday.

    It was Flowers doing the John Wall dance after they beat UK last year! I was really hoping someone would do it after the game, but hearing Liggins saying this was awesome. When the camera show them doing the line shake after the game Liggs was talking and Flowers snapped back a stare at Liggs after Liggs started saying this!!! Liggins…the new Maglore!!!

    Liggins has culture on his side…he’s a CAT. A key piece in the UK’s puzzle. A shut-down Defensive player who likes to trash talk
    #26 wonder what the people of Japan say about how we Americans act in crisis situations??

    Liggins has a “”Kill the MF’s” attitude. He is a James Lee throw back.

    Go Liggins !! WV players were acting like punks last year 26, where were you then? This team as been winning because of DeAndre Liggin’s attitude. Even Brandon Knight gives him credit for influencing the behavior of the others…so punk that !
    GO CATS !

    considering the way WVU acted after last years game, today i am very proud to be a UK fan. I think the players showed great restraint and maturity. Liggins comment was well deserved and funny and certainly doesnt cross any lines IMO.

    42) Agreed! He is our modern day Magliore. He just needs to knock the crap out of the Buckeye mascot at halftime on Friday on his way in at halftime

    The WVU players didn’t say a thing back either, they just kinda looked on cuz they remember.

    Love it! Liggins shut that midget down and then told him about it. Liggins’ attitude is a big part of this team’s success.

    Always and I mean always good to have an enforcer. Please don’t bring that stuff that we don’t act that way at UK. We are not Duke, don’t wanta be Duke. I will trade 2 Technicals a year for one bad —— ——. “The path of the righteous man is beset on all sides by the iniquities of the selfish and the tyranny of evil men. Blessed is he who, in the name of charity and good will, shepherds the weak through the valley of the darkness. For he is truly his brother’s keeper and the finder of lost children. And I will strike down upon thee with great vengeance and furious anger those who attempt to poison and destroy my brothers. And you will know I am the Lord when I lay my vengeance upon you.” My man Dre’.

    I love the energy and defense Liggins brings but I do NOT like him talking trash in the handshake line.Maybe he just watched the classless Fab Five documentary.

    59) bet you would like to see short shorts and chuck taylors make a comeback too… wouldn’t you?

    I’m sure you also make a call to a sports talk show once a week to ask why Jon Hood doesn’t get more playing time.

    I love a player with a long memory and a little bit of attitude. Especially as leadership for the kids we have this year. They can use all the fire and swagger they can get.

    It was awsome when I would goal tend shots after the whistle. Used to make Matt Walsh so mad he almost didn’t want to date men.

    The phrase “it’s just a game” means nothing to Deandre. Wish every player had some of his fire. Give em hell Deandre. Let’s go get some Buckeyes!

    For those that can’t hear it, Liggins is emphatically saying “Do the John Wall now!” over and over. You can hear him at 2-3 seconds, and as he’s passing away from the camera, you can barely hear him continuing.



  67. Han
    11:19 pm March 20, 2011 Permalink

    If we keep winning, we need a shirt that has Liggins on it and the text “Do the John Wall now!”

    Shooters forget, but defenders never do.
