    Matt, will you address your feelings about Howie Lindsey? For a long time whenever callers attempted to make fun of him (particularly his weight) you would take up for him and give your typical “I like the guy” spiel. But this week you’ve made a couple of jabs at his weight and your tone changed. Just wondering why?

    Cal and his staff are good evaluators of talent. They would not bring in Harrow unless they saw something in his skill set that would work in Cal’s system. Oh and he will provide veteran support at an important position. Little brother is so bitter we’re kicking their butts on and off the court.

    Matt Jones,

    How about the fact that Adidas has donated money to A-HOPE and Sponsors Indy Elite? Is Adidas buying players?

    The article made it sound like that if kids don’t look at schools Barnet wants them to look at then he cuts them off and doesn’t help him.

    Adidas also has the Pump Brothers

    is Adidas the direst of all shoe companies?



  24. The Rick Bozich O Face
    10:28 am May 27, 2011 Permalink

    If anyone remembers, Calipari said some things about Liggins where a lot of people screwed Liggins over causing trust issues for Liggins. Guess this a-hole AAU coach as one.



  25. UKGirl
    10:28 am May 27, 2011 Permalink

    21) I think we will ultimately. If I remember correctly many people didn’t think Coach Cal would be able to get Bledsoe and Wall and we all know how that turned out. If the guy wants to play for a coach that will always get the most out of him ability wise, which in turn will be good for his future, he should come here.



  26. Cal"gets it"
    10:30 am May 27, 2011 Permalink

    Would Adidas donate money to A-HOPE and Sponsor Indy Elite if Barnet didn’t send kids to Adidas schools and pro Adidas college coaches?

    Nike has a recent track record of not stopping sponsorship because a lot of AAU Nike teams kids are going to schools associated with other shoe companies.

    Nike has tried to clean up their practices

    Adidas souunds like they are getting worse

    well it is True that many will have an adverse reaction to the truth/reality…..it is a waste of taxpayer money to fund academic fraud…..it is intellectually dishonest to enroll people in colleges that you know have neither the academic background or the desire to obtain a degree and then feign concern regarding academic performance….that folks is a waste of taxpayer money, further for most institutions athletics is a fiscal blackhole….uk basketball/football carry the load for the rest of the athletic dept…..regardless, it does not serve society to be handing out worthless pieces of paper on the basis of running fast or jumping high…..maybe bball players for instance should have a bball curriculum…..you know how many points is a three point goal worth, in what state is the university of kentucky located, if one half of a basketball game is 20 minutes how many minutes does a whole game consist of etc etc etc…..seriously what i object to is designing a system dependent upon fraud and then decrying fraud…..

  35. Rodney Purvis WILL BE A CAT
    10:44 am May 27, 2011 Permalink

    Purvis will be a Kentucky Wildcat. Why? He lists-NC State, Kentucky, Loser.. I mean, LOUISville.. and Puke. If Ryan Harrow leaving NC State isnt good enough reason to eliminate them then i dont know what is. Louisville… doesnt even count in my opinion. And Duke?? If Purvis wanted Duke enough, he would have done committed with the UK commitment from Harrow. He knows he can be top 5 here, and it doesnt matter if Cal has 10 five star point guards, he would make it work somehow. My wish list- Harrow(already here) Purvis, Mitch McGary, Dajuan Coleman and Archie Goodwin

    11:09 am May 27, 2011 Permalink

    I gotta agree with Andy in the fact that this Kentucky TEAM was very good. But it had to have been Calipari that brought them to that point. I’ll be the first to admit that I gave up on them 10 different times during the season (and once during Midnight Madness). They had the talent and potential to be such a great team which they showed in spurts during the season. But unlike last year (The Year of the PPAt Boogie Wall) this team played like a group of first year players (because that’s what 85% of them were). It wasn’t until they pulled it together in the 2nd half of the West Virginia game that I started to believe they could make a run. I knew Ohio State was going to lose because they had lost every game where their opponent could defend three’s. I was slightly worried about UNC but knew we should have won earlier that year (due to UK playing like they were freshman). And I was terrifed playing UCONN because the November UCONN game was the only loss that I felt UK didn’t beat themselves but also got outplayed.
    But this team pulled it together at the exact right time. They proved to me (a very die hard loyal UK Fan that thought he learned in 1998) that you never give up on the Cats. All of this can’t be solely put on the players, most of the credit has to be given to the Coach. A coach that you could see throughout the season, completely improve his team from a bunch of talented individuals, to one of the GREAT basketball teams of the GREATEST basketball programs of all time.
