    Jay Bilas on Calipari posted on an insider column. He can coach: Nobody seems to garner greater reaction than Kentucky’s John Calipari. For some reason, nobody seems to be in the middle with regard to Cal. But, care for him or not, you cannot be in the middle about his coaching ability. That guy can absolutely coach. Calipari has really good offensive and defensive schemes, and consistently gets his teams to play hard and together, no matter what their ages or where. That is not an accident. I don’t know what it is that rubs some people the wrong way, whether his persona as a salesman or his relentless pursuit and empowerment of players, but Calipari is a Hall of Fame basketball coach.

    I think its hard to accept, but we may never have another player with the ability of John Wall. He might not be the best player we ever have, but there will probably never be a player who combines his size, athletic ability and ball skill. He had made incredible plays every game.

    That was pretty good, but nothing was better than Tony Venneti having to start the Matt Jones post game show after the Louisville game, it was absoulutly fitting that he had to take UK calls after the Game it was almost as good as the game itself.

    A tear went down my cheek when I saw Pat. Then I saw Darnell and bawled. It took nearly 5 minutes before Mrs. Fake got me settled down.

    Well Bill G. would have won it all with last years team. He should be brought back. He’s just TOUGH and knows how to win. It’s all about toughness…and whipping the other team…gotta be TOUGH.

    I’m not going to lie. I’m a little trashed right now and just clicked play and got hella worried that Harris had died or something. Cool vid but it’s like the type tech savvy UL fans make for the dead homiez.

    Lee Todd quit cause he knows better. He’s not gonna see another UK NCAA scandal while under his watch. He was happy with Billy G. Cause Billy G. was TOUGH….his players would just whip the other team. You gotta be TOUGH to be good at UK…its all about TOUGHNESS and whipping the other team.

    tough

    I’m sure he wasn’t ballin out a small puddle… lol If this video set up didn’t pull heart strings then you’re probably just a cold ****** Which is fine.. You cried during the Duke game? Who’s the ***** here? That game evokes utter despair and fluid anger if anything…

    I thought the TARDS would at least stay off this sight for at least a week. These dmba$$es’llll they really are freakin retarded.
    ULosers need to understand that you are not in our league.

    I’d like to make a motion that KSR start charging $ for this sight. Make payments due around the 15th of the month. This would keep the Tards away, their welfare checks are spent by the 4th impeading their ability to afford the proposed 50 cents per month dues.
    Can I get a second???????

    #38 Is his name hoss cat?

    But seriously, I was just jokin. I don’t have any Jack and Jesus couldn’t call me my numbers unlisted. I can resight the Bible and have discovered enough to understand it’s a book that really shouldn’t be forced on anyone. I preach piece to all, for all, regardless of faith.

    Louisville fans really don’t get it they are surrounded and outnumbered just like the Texans at the Alamo only we have more blue fans in Louisville than they do red I just don’ ge why the think the university representing a city should draw more support from the entire state than the state university

    In memoriam.? Please. I thought it was well done but, none of these guys are dead yet, are they? Oh my, did someone in Louisville finally key Matt Jones?

    A little sappy, imo. How about changing the title to “We’ll miss you, 2010.”

    The Fake Gimel Martinez –

    I teared up when it rolled PPat… what an incredible young man and what a credit to the uniform that he wore. And his parents exemplified how UK player families should comport themselves. And the Rich Brooks portion was a real knot-in-the throat inducer too. Great, great man and coach.

    Bravo, Drew – you da man

    wow, I didn’t realize how much I missed prairie dog until just then. Those 3 guys(Krebs, Harris, Stevenson) went through more at UK than we will ever know. Tubby Smith recruits who played for Calipari. Witnessed 2 coaches depart. Played for Bully G in 2 of the most controversial years in the past 2 decades. And rewarded with a resurgence in their senior year. Obviously they are not star talents like Cousins, Wall, Jones, etc but those guys gave everything they had for 4 years. I really will miss all 3.
