    Cards are red, Cats are blue. We got 8, y’all got 2!” (and WE will hang another before they do!)

    So with Duke not being #1 anymore does that give us a chance being in the top 25 anytime soon?

    Uncle Matt and cousin Ryan… you should do the polar plunge in Lexington with 630 WLAP and 104.5 the cat! At least it’s in a pool and not in the Ohio River like in Louisville. Eww.

    KSR and BBN, GIVE IT A REST ON ARCHIE! What if he listens to this show? What is an 18 year old kid supposed to think about our fanbase, one lady wants to literally give him a spankin’. I’ve always said we have a vocal minority of fans that make us all look bad at times. After the Bama post game comments and listening to the callers on yesterday’s show, I am wondering if that is still the case. I am frustrated we are a bubble team right now, and in the comfort of my own home I scream at our players like everybody else but when I call in to KSR or I’m at games, Wildcat Willie is cheering his team on! Archie is working his tail off out there and wants to win.
    How many of us really and truly believe we understand this team and what is going on more than Cal? Really? How about we let our CHAMPIONSHIP COACH handle this! Let’s be THRILLED we have Cal here and not make this job IMPOSSIBLE. I know we all want Cal to coach here until he retires but if he’s not allowed one “down year” after winning #8, then this job becomes impossible. Keep in mind too the season is far from over. Then think about this, if we were to run Cal off early, who do you think will want to come into a situation like this????? We really need to think carefully before we speak. I’ll step off the soap box now. We need more fans like Chester! GO CATS!!!

    Start shooting better. Kind of tired about hearing about this “buying in” crap. The kids are terrible shooters. All of them. I don’t know if they shoot lights out in practice and then come into the game and sh-t their pants or what. You can’t win if you don’t make baskets. Too many missed layups, 10 footers, 15 footers….we have no shooters on the team. I’ve never seen a UK team shoot so bad for so long.

    Chester, I agree with you that some fans are totally over the top. Some of the more vocal ones (at least on the forums) I suspect are either trolls from other fan bases, or immature middle-school or high school kids. I seriously doubt the fans will run Cal off early – he knew quite well what he was walking into when he came here. I do agree with you, however, that the “lunatic fringe” can give the remainder of the more rational fans a bad reputation. I agree that Archie is trying to win for us, but he is reverting to AAU ball when multiple defenders collapse on him. It is true that attacking his character and calling him selfish may be out of line, but Cal himself uttered the “S” word (along with some much stronger language) at TJones a couple years ago during a game. These kids have to be used to some criticism at this level – otherwise, how are they going to deal with the pressure of actually earning a paycheck for their play?

    Teenage girls are the worst hospital roommates ever. I have had several surgeries that required week-long stays in the hospital and always the teenage girls are the worst. They are the biggest babies that are totally self-centered and can only think about their own suffering and impose it on their roommate who is trying to keep their suffering to themself. One time there was a girl who had just had foot surgery and she had the tv on all night, whined and cried about all the pain she was in all night and made her boyfriend (how in the world was a boyfriend allowed with a teenage girl in a 2-bed hospital room?) get in the bed with her. I couldn’t get any sleep no matter how much they drugged me up. Another time a very young girl had just had a baby, apparently her second, that she gave up for adoption, and she kept the tv on all night. Parents don’t teach kids to have any consideration for others anymore.

    I think it’s BS we shouldn’t expect to be great every year. Look at Kansas, how many years in a row have they won their conference? Even when they’re expected to be down they’re a top 10 team. This is in no way a jab at Cal, just saying there’s no reason not to always expect great seasons.

    Stoop’s defense is very simple… all based on discipline and will enable LB’s to pursue the ball more.

    Offensively it is also very simple. You run a very thin playbook, but you run it out of 3 times as many formations. Once QB’s learn the progressions it will be cake to learn. The offense will learn the playbook in 1 week… literally.
