    Can you imagine if they did the show from a stranded cruise ship in the summer? I think it would be the greatest radio ever to hear Matt just yelling at Ryan in front of his kids for 2 hours a day

    Nerlens has to go, really. With a top of the draft that sucks pretty bad, teams are going to be more willing to roll the dice on a player that is possibly damaged goods more than they will next year.

    He won’t make 3 mill per year unless he is top 3… More likely he will be 6-10 from the GMs that have spoken… Not the “draft experts” but the GMs…… 7 is a lot worse than 2. If he cant get back until December, he should stay and play in Jan-March to prove that his knee is okay.

    UK not in the tournament? Really? They may have no big wins but when you have a top 25 team like OH St that’s 1-6 vs ranked teams, then UK should be in. OH St is OVERRATED.

    We lose against Tenn Sat. and we are NIT bound. Sad but true. Not because we have a bad won/loss but it makes us minus on road wins and damages strength of schedule. Arkansas is a road win we must have and they are playing pretty good right now. What I am saying is we pretty much need to win out unless we win the SEC tournament.

    I went on an Alaskian Cruise when I was 18 in June or so. It was about 50 degrees. There were 5 people on the boat my age, all of them male except one. So, don’t be looking for girls I would guess. The food is great, but its not like a Caribbean cruise where it has stuff open all night. Everything shuts down except for room service. It will also be daylight for 20 hours a day and then a few hours of twilight. But good luck and have fun Drew!

    I’m sorry but I don’t think Belmont, Mid. Tenn., La Salle, and Iowa St. would beat us without Nerlens.



  97. Pimp K
    11:38 am February 15, 2013 Permalink

    I think the committee would be looking at the Ole Miss game when sizing Kentucky up. If Kentucky is left out, Mississippi would probably be put in. The committee would say that, without Nerlens, the Wildcats would not have beaten Mississippi and therefore isn’t a more deserving team.

    11:41 am February 15, 2013 Permalink

    If Kentucky can do okay the rest of the way and finish better than Ole Miss I think the Cats will make it because the SEC will not be left with only two teams in the dance. The conference will get three in at least.

    Bottom line is – who cares what the heck this mock bracket group comes up with. They are dealing with scenarios that won’t all come true anyways. It’s absolutely nothing to get worked up about. The more interesting thing will be to hear about the process from Matt when he returns.

    Calipari and his staff will figure something out to help get this mediocre team over the hump and into the dance. I believe in Calipari, Robic, Antigua, and Payne. They got five or six guys that are decent and they can work with. They will get it done.

    110 — Marquette is starting to slide themselves and in the end of the season the wins over them and Mizzou may not be that great at all. Marquette is totally overrated and was absolutely dismantled by Florida (30+ points) earlier in the season.

    I have a feeling we are going to play well tomorrow and beat the crap out of Tennessee. Nerlens’ injury is going to serve as a wake-up call for our guys to play their very best.

    I don’t think Cal missed on this team… I think the freshmen are playing like freshmen. If Harrow, Cauley-Stein, and either Poythress or Harrow stay… Add that to our incoming guys + Wiltjer… We have one hell of a team!

    Thank you Danny! So glad somebody put the mouth in his place. Can’t stand the sound of his voice.

    128- I don’t think it’s freshman being freshman at all. It’s giving effort and playing team ball. that’s on the individuals and has nothing to do with being a freshman.

    That Danny call was awesome! It overshadowed that dreadful panty call previous to it. That caller is hard to understand and has jokes that aren’t funny!
