Frustrated

BEz6ANWCIAAORgr.jpg-large

As you read this, I am in California, probably asleep after Day One at the BNP Paribas Open. We will have more on that this weekend, but for now my reaction is basically the one shared by the UK fans above. Watching UK this season has been unbelievably frustrating. The team simply hasn’t performed and players have not reached anywhere close to their maximum capacity levels. What started as a year with promise and potential for growth, has turned into a difficult-to-watch limp to the end of a tumultuous regular season. In theory, as Calipari said after the game, a win over Florida and a lot can be forgotten. A win would probably give Kentucky the #2 seed in the SEC Tournament (there are some scenarios to the contrary, but it would likely work out that way) and still could put the Cats in the Tournament. But after the road performances at Arkansas and Georgia, why would we think that can happen?

I won’t dissect the team. You know the problems as well as I do. And after a national championship last season, I honestly feel silly in complaining about virtually anything the next year (especially when a juggernaut class is coming on board next fall). But after spending a day in a Tennis media room, watching the Cats struggle, I can’t help but feel like the guys above. Person after person kept coming up to me and Drew (from all over the country and some from all over the world) and asking “you like Kentucky? What has happened to the Wildcats?” The answer is a lot of things have happened, but at the end of the day, we thought that despite these faults, the Cats would still overcome. It is looking like, absent a late miracle, they will not. And that is both frustrating and perplexing.

    I completely agree! You can tell that Cal is frustrated too… he is unsure how to motivate these guys. I ‘m not sure that anyone can motivate them at this point.

    If securing a good position in the SEC tourny and possible the NCAA tourny isn’t motivation enough, don’t know what could be. Most these guys probably just need to get a year of the spotlight jitters out of their system.

    While it’s true that a win over Florida would make a lot of our troubles go away, the rub is that we have to actually win the game for it to happen.

    A team like this needs about a week straight of basketball practice with no basketballs. Run them to death and it will weed out the one’s who have the heart and will to when. You have to create mini competition scenarios throughout practice that rewards off heart rather than skill. This team is full of top players so we know talent is not the problem. It all comes down to the voice in you chest(not head) that says “I’m not losing anymore.”

    you can use the to much spotlight or they are freshman excuse all you want but in reality these players can not and will not player together as a team. This isnt the first year the kentucky team has the spotlight on them that is no excuse freshman or not its march.

    This team reminds me of my old pickup when the transmission went out. No matter how much gas you gave it, it just made a lot of noise and still only traveled at 30 mph.

    Well, this Team is not who we thought they were. Without solid upper-class leadership the younger guys have just struggled. I suppose this was to be expected, but we just pushed those thoughts aside. Now all we can do is play it out and see what happens. I’m hoping for a good showing against Florida this Saturday and then a good showing in the SEC tourney. After that whatever happens just happens. While my expectation is to win the NCAA every year, the reality is that we won’t. I think this experience will certainly curb our enthusiasm for next year. Cal is not always going to be able to MacGyver disparate parts in to something usable.

    Stop the insanity of continuing to use the “youth” excuse for this dismal play. These guys are 30 games into the season and have gotten worse since the season has progressed. We as fans have more fight in us and embarassment for this team than the team members do themselves. I HATE this team.

    I don’t think the spotlight or freshmen excuse is an excuse, it is a reality. Some guys just reach that level a maturity sooner than others. I think with more talent around them, and more competitors these guys could get a lot better next year.



  14. Please Explain
    8:38 am March 8, 2013 Permalink

    I get the fact that we are young and inexperienced and that they need time. What I don’t understand is how under any scenario, Goodwin, Poythress & Cauley-Stein are considered first round draft picks. They are not good and I don’t even see that much potential at this time. They could be great, but it will take alot of time and effort. No way a NIT team has three first round draft picks. These players had better stop reading the NBA projection because it will not happen.

    Kinda reminds me of the 1966-67 and 1971-72 seasons. Year after final four lost TWC. Kron and Conley had graduated, Riles back was screwed up from a water ski accident at Lake Herrington, and they struggled to a .500 year…help was on the way with Issel, Pratt, Casey, and company. They floundered. Coach Rupp’s last year, farewell tour, talent had really gone down hill, and the Super Kittens were waiting in the wings. This too shall pass, but it is very deflating.

    Matt, I agree that all of the doomsayers on here seem to have forgotten about last year and the two years before that. But to all of those out there talking 40-0 next year (some at KSR included)I would say ease off a little bit. If this year has taught us anything it should be that these kids are still just freshmen, no matter how talented they are.

    Cal missed on an absolute ton of kids last year and again when trying to get some transfers … We got a few highly rated guys, but don’t have enough of a rotation to sit guys … I was very disappointed at the start when they said Harrow was still only 170, I mean it’s his 3rd year in college and he sat out last year, does he know where the gym is? Then, Cal said Kyle wasn’t even working out like he should …

    Watched Michigan play Michigan St the other day and was just amazed at how differently the game looked when teams played together.

    That heading describes it perfectly. Tell me I’m not the only one who experiences this, but there’s a knot in my stomach when I watch games like the one last night.Looking ahead, there is just enough left there to tease us. Example: They will probably beat Florida on Saturday and lose by 20 in the first round of the SEC Tourney. The team has a great class coming in, but if there is a scholarship left (after we get Randle), I would love to add a 5th-year Senior transfer, another Julius Mays type of figure.

    There is obviously serious chemistry problems with this team. There are two to three players that actually seem like they want to play but the rest seem like they could care less to be out there. The truth of the matter is we had to know at some point that Cal would get a group a players that wouldn’t gel together and that he would also eventually recruit some guys that aren’t the people he thought they were. With as much turnover as we have had the last four years you knew there was going to be a year that it doesn’t work and this year is that year. I still think Cal is the best coach in the game. He doesn’t need to change his philosophy. Obviously it works more than it doesn’t! I hope the fan base doesn’t start this crap of he needs to not recruit one and dones. What Cal does works but you can’t expect it to work every year. We’ve also got to remember that we lost our heart and soul of this team and our best player! Do that to another team in the country and see what happens to them… I will continue to root for this team and hope for a miracle and keep reminding myself what we have coming in next year!

    #17- I don’t go back that far, only to ’78. This team will go down with Sutton’s last season and maybe Team Turmoil in terms of repugnancy. BCG’s NIT season was the result of a psycopathic coach and limited talent. This season’s culprit is squarely on the failure of our players to grow up.

    Cal will have a serious dilemma on his hands after the season. The upcoming draft is historically weak and some stupid NBA team will draft Goodwin/Poythress/WCS in the first round. However, NONE of them are remotely capable of making an NBA roster next season. NONE of them are going to see the floor at the NBA level and will probably spend all year bouncing between DNP-CD and the D-league.

    So, what’s the best advice to give them? Goodwin & Poythress could easily be one-contact only players. Rookie deals are now only 2 years with a team option for the 3rd. If they want an NBA career they all need to come back to UK. If they want an NBA paycheck they should probably leave now.

    As someone else posted, this team’s nickname has become obvious- The UNCOACHABLES!
    If our core guys can’t be coached in Lexington by John Calipari then I don’t see any of them being capable of surviving in the NBA.

    This will all go away after Saturday. No matter what happens, the SEC tournament is the start of a new season. We as fans can keep demoralizing the team, or we can show up in Nashville, create a “home-game” atmosphere, and give this team the support and crowd energy they need right now. This team is not that much different from the UConn team two years ago. UConn finished 9th in their conference. They made the NCAA tournament because, out of nowhere, they won their conference tournament. How ’bout the Georgia team (maybe 4-5 yrs ago?), they were god-awful and ended up winning the conference tournament. The SEC is not that good, so it would not be unthinkable for the Cats to win the conference tourney. Hell, we still are tied for second in the conference standings.

    Here’s the rest of the season: We lose a close game to Florida on Saturday, get a 5 seed in the SEC, beat Auburn or Miss St on Thursday, then roll over and play dead against Missouri on Friday. Are left out of the tournament, and turn down an offer to play in the NIT

    #12 – Great thing that these kids don’t give a rats arse what you think. You could really damage their egos. We are bad. Every single one of you could have seen it coming into the season when we are feverishly working on getting transfers in from Wright State. Come on.. you didn’t see this coming? I though Alex would be better, but everyone else is who we thought or heard they were(the only place I heard Harrow could play was here..). If we didn’t talk as much crap as we (as fans) do, this wouldn’t be as embarrasing.

    the way i see it, each year with this one and done scenario we take a gamble. Sometimes we won’t get all the players we want, sometimes we will get players that are going to play like freshmen. This year after Noel went down, we have a team full of players that play like freshmen, some walkons and a transfer trying to lead. The gamble didn’t pay off this year but it clearly worked last year. That system is fine with me.
    Don’t forget harrison barnes didn’t live up to expectations his first year, and came back and was more productive. You idiots on twitter and in the comments sections need to remember you’re talking to 19 year olds and the 17-18 year olds thinking of coming here next year will read that. If you want to have more years like this, keep showing how quickly you are to throw our players under the bus so more and more recruits will see it.
    Why not try to lift the players up? how do you know Poythress isn’t trying? maybe he’s just a freshman and isn’t sure where he needs to be at all times.

    why in the world arent we running the dribble drive anymore? Some might say its because our personnel is different, but im not buying that. obviously slowing down the offense isnt working. they play 75% of every possession beyond the three point line, just passing the ball around without dribbling. this team is too patient. when we get down they act like they have all the time in the world. Cal needs to step back and let these kids play street ball for us to have any chance.

    Matt we’ve listened to your crappy predictions all year. I even remember you telling a caller that Gonzaga would never win it all. At least there in the tourney and probably will be a 1 seed. You need to quit bad mouthing every other team and focus on KY’s team. But I guess you come by it honest beging a graduate of Duke and all (lol)!
    This year is not Cal’s fault. He has done a great job with what he’s had to deal with. Poythrees and Harrow need to go on and sign up for the draft, especially with the talent that’s coming in next year. This group coming in next year will be a special group of athelete’s that will be very good. Oh well, Looks like we’re going to be NIT bound!

    I agree with Vick @22. Seems to be a chemistry problem of some sort. This team definitely doesn’t seem to love each other as last year’s team did. Everyone was so excited that J. Mays was becoming a leader, but I seriously don’t see one player screaming in another’s face when said leader isn’t playing well himself as being a good answer. I think there is some behind the scene personality problems that we may never know about.
    Again, they just don’t seem to like each other much. It was bound to happen at some point in Coach Cal’s career. He’ll learn from this and next year will be better. Please, God, let next year be better.

    I hate when fans of other teams act like we suck if we have a down year. Every team goes through down years. The Celtics, the Lakers, the Yankees, the Patriots, Notre Dame Football all have bad seasons at one time or another. That shouldn’t take away from last year’s accomplishment. Sports are not meant to be looked at in the present. Programs and organizations should be observed in their past, present, and future. We may not look good in the present, but UK has a better past and brighter future than any team in America.

    How many programs that won a championship and lost their top six players to the NBA and graduation would expect to be a top 5 team the next year? One that I can think of. Us. I have to admit I have some doubts about Cal’s system of one-and-done players since our upper classmen have finally gone and we don’t have much to mix in with the incoming freshmen but we have to wait and see about that, after all we won a championship 11 months ago.

    This is our team and we should support them with our presents at games and on blogs like this one. There is a big difference between constructive honest analysis and hatful criticism that attacks judges individuals personally. There seems to be at best an equal portion of both on this sight. I get it. This is a fan board not an inside the clubhouse player / coaches board. It is very easy to set down at a keyboard to vent your feelings and frustrations. It can be very therapeutic and cathartic. However many of us, myself included at times, should really take a long pause and read our comments before we press submit, especially if there is a chance current players of prospective players will be reading as we know many do. Investing in personally tearing someone down, breaking them down to where they question everything they once believed about themselves only works if you double the investment to build them back up into someone even better and more effective. If you do not engage in the later, you are only absorbed in an activity that fulfills your own shellfish visceral needs leaving something or someone in poorer condition than when you first encountered. Don’t get me wrong I realize there are many, many folks out there that are just fine with that kind of legacy and will defend and justify their right to behave the way they choose and take no responsibility for the outcome. Regardless in the end there are only two conclusions. We either leave things in better condition than we found them or we leave them the lessor for having stumble upon us.
    I am not satisfied with much of what I have seen in this year’s team. I feel confident that down to the individual player and coach they too are not satisfied. I truly hope however that they trust and believe in each other. A real brother walks with you when the rest of the world walks on you.

    A. Our guard play has been subpar, and Cal’s offense demands great guard play.
    B. These guys from the start were treated like kings (ESPN Access, new lockerrooms, etc.) as if they had won the NCAA championship. Re-read warning signs given by Sean Woods, MKG and other visitors.

    I think this group of guys thought they could just throw on the UK jersey and be automatic Final Four team. Doesn’t work that way.

    I remember how Matt Jones blatantly dismissed several callers to his radio show in Aug. / Sept. / Oct. who predicted the team would not be very good. I had my doubts as well, but I hate to see it come to this. Once the roster was finalized, I wondered where the scoring would come from. I knew that in most games, Kyle Wiltjer would be more of a liability than an asset. I also knew they team was in big trouble if Cal needed Wiltjer & Polson to play significant minutes. The eggs have now hatched unfortunately.

    Poor freshmen. Life is so hard. I mean, they could be takin’ it easy in Afghanistan or Djibouti or somewhere really awesome like that.

    But no! They have to play basketball and people critique their games. GOD! It’s so unfair!!!

    71: Your last championship of ’87 is a distant memory. And this one is wide open and your team is very beatable. From this hick to you – don’t count your chickens before they hatch.

    #55. Hell yes!!! Why is an Indiana fan on here? 1987 was a long time ago and if you don’t win this year BBN will come down hard chump.

    76) Just an opinion. I have vented on this site too, but try anway, to avoid personal attacks and character judgment. Nothing good comes from it.

    I can tell you all this with complete assurance and confidence… #71 is not an IU fan. IU fans don’t refer to Louisville as “Loserville”. That’s a UK rivalry thing. I actually can’t even remember the last time IU played or cared about UL to be honest. He’s either a UL troll or a disgruntled UK fan trying to stir the pot for all of you.

    @74 – No fan of IU is truly counting IU as the NC yet. Yes we like their chances better than other teams but we also realize it’s a gauntlet to with the NC. Actually trying to win the B1G Tourney could prove just as tough. The winner may have to beat 3 top 10 teams on three consecutive days.

I Live in Georgetown, but work in Kentucky with a bunch of moron Kentucky and Louisville fans so I have been putting up with their garbage talk for years. I call them Loserville because I think it’s funny. Go HOOSIERS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
