Just when you thought Indiana fans were done…

… they go and do something like this.

There’s a new tribute to the Christian Watford buzzer-beater, this time through Christmas lights.  It’s… I don’t know.  I don’t know what to say.  I can’t even write anything right now.  I’m stunned.  I can’t believe this is real.  It’s right there — I’m looking at it — and I still don’t believe it.  Someone really synched their Christmas display to the call of the Watford buzzer-beater.  Is this real life?  It can’t be.  Tell me I’m still asleep.  Tell me I’m not really watching this.  Please.  Someone.  Tell me this is just some sick joke.  I can’t take this anymore.

Indiana fans will never, ever, ever, ever, ever live this one down.  Ever.  My grandkids will laugh at this — once I tell them who Christian Watford is, of course.

Unbelievable.

Un-be-Sweet-Sixteen-lievable.

    Butch Jones has been hired by TN. Stoops is still a better hire I believe. I know UK was looking at Jones too, but Stoops will be better I believe.

    That could have been cool. Those lights-to-sound stuff just doesn’t work with a game call tho, and it just becomes a seizure inducing pile of chaos.

    I hate to admit that’s cool, but it is. Cal needs to add this to his speech when he says “We’re everyone’s Super Bowl…We lose to them and they synchronize Christmas lights on their house to it. I can’t hide you here.”

    I soooo hope Indiana gets an early exit come tourney time! That being said, I am confident that the NCAA will make sure that the Loosiers get as easy a path as possible.

    well, what else do they have?
    sad, actually that a “rush the court” ,regular season, home game would be the highlight of a team’s year. Your supposed to act like you’ve been there before,
    unless you haven’t.

    If Marcus Teague hasn’t taken the play off and guarded the passing lanes on the play, and if Miller had been guarding the perimeter instead of standing in or near the paint, there’s no way they could have gotten a remotely good shot off.

    It’s kind of amazing on such a key play having a brain fart by two players, but it happened. Wish we would have beaten them, because if so, we may have gone undefeated that year, meaning we may not have let Vandy beat us. But I’m grateful for hanging the banner. Let’s get 40 in a row next year.

    Shows how much IU had fallen and how IU fans and UL fans are almost alike in their “Little Brother” attitudes. Can you imagine UK fans doing this in 1975 or any other game where the score was close at the end?

    After winning the NC why do Uk fans concern themselves with this stuff? Really?



  25. I'm With Mark

    I find the obsession with IU and UL tiresome at KSR as well. I just want UK news. If we’re not playing
    either one of them in the next 24 hours, I don’t wanna hear about them in any way shape or form.
    I wish there was a way to “ignore” such posts so I didn’t even have to see them. To give this much
    attention to those schools just proves that at least as far as KSR is concerned, the fans of those schools
    are right– this partiuclar (KSR) group of UK fans are VERY concerned about IU/UL. Plenty of us
    out here are not. Sadly though, KSR is the most updated and most up to date site to get UK news
    from, so we’re stuck with the personalities of KSR who are indeed obsessed and overly focused
    on OTHER schools. I believe it also invites trolls here, which makes it difficult and time intensive
    to get anything of value from the comments section.

    Next thing you know, they will break out old films of the 1974 98-74 shellacking. Of course, I did paint 92-90 on the back of my basketbal goal to commemorate the revenge win which denied Bobby and the Loosiers a spot in the final four. Once a loosier, always a loosier. Just a new generation.

    IU’s obsessive celebration of that win would normally get under my skin. BUT, we went on to beat them in the tourney and then won the NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIP. Game. Set. Match. Go Big Blue!

    25 Some of us like this site because it is entertaining. Sitting in front of a computer at work all day can be boring, and it’s nice to come here for a laugh. The funniest posts are those making fun of our rivals or teams we just don’t like. Yes, I like the informative part too, but I don’t want the comedy to be cut out just bc it invites trolls to the site. I’d rather read multiple posts a day about UK and rivals than half the amount of posts strictly talking about UK. They can make people register to comment and that would cut out some of the trolling, but its their site and and if they don’t want to do that, oh well.

    You would think they could hire someone at a higher level than UK. I personally think we got the better coach. Could be wrong, but I don’t think so.

    If UK would have hired Jones BBN would be throwing a fit just like UT fans are doing now. Jones will have UT mired in mediocerity just a small step above were they are now. Then in 3-4 years will be fired. I think out of the 4 SEC opening UK probably made the best hire. Something I highly doubted would happen.

I am SICK AND FREAKING TIRED of KSR bashers. YOU DONT HAVE TO READ THE FREAKING POST IF YOU SEE IT IS ABOUT SOMETHING YOU DONT LIKE. Honestly, leave your negativity in your head, where you can talk to yourself and care about what you have to say, because I for one don’t. Your negativity will help no one.

    I’m not mad, it’s just not good. I was totally expecting to see D. Miller closing out on Watford with a ball going in the basket. Instead, it more like Watford’s WWE entrance if he was ever a wrestler.

    I agree with the folks above who wish KSR had less IU and UofL stuff. I think it is because most of the KSR writers live in or are from the “Kentuckiana” area, so those other teams are on their radar more than the average UK fan. The last time I was in Louisville, I was watching the local news and was shocked to see a pretty long segment on IU basketball–I kept on thinking, “Am I in Kentucky?” Of course, the answer is “barely.”

    Never have I ever seen a team so proud of a regular season win. I feel bad for a team that their greatest victory in years is a last second shot at the buzzer. This makes me so proud to be a UK fan were we celebrate National Championships instead of regular season wins. Haha who makes a trophy case for losing in the sweet sixteen ( that is really pathetic for real!!!) but I guess beating UK was their NC and I hope we gave IU fans something to be proud about after so many years of being pathetic. Enjoy your win because I know I am still celebrating our NC!!!

    Of course, if this was a UK house it would be the best thing in the world. In fact, pretty much everything that gets made fun of would be praised for it’s awesomeness if were UK. You know why IU fans keep reliving that game? Because it was one of the best games ever. I was on of the 10 uk fans there, and trust me it was probably the craziest, loudest arena I’ve ever been in. This game brought them back, like the unforgettables did for us. We have 4 guys in the rafters that never even made it past the elite 8. I know its all for fun, but I just think us UK fans are not consistent with our praise and criticism sometimes!
