    Y’know what I hate? Going to the NCAA college basketball page, hitting the “Scores” link, and then having to select “SEC” in that top left dropdown menu to see our boxscore.

    The scores page, as you know, defaults to scores of teams in the Top 25.

    Ah, those were the days.

    Goodwin sucks. Everybody complains about poythress and wiltjer but goodwin is the one that kills the cats with extremely selfish play to go along with no defense. How can wiltjer and poythree get shot if goodwin jacks up horrible shots and NEVER makes a good pass. Goodwin is and will continue to be the downfall of this team… hope he learns soon how to play for the team instead of his non existant draft stock.

    Thank you bulldawg. I have never really called a Bball player out, but Goodwin had a chance to pass and chose to take the shot. I hate that selfishness,

    Goodwin is a ball hog. He needs to “BUY IN”

    Has there ever been more of a ball hog at uk than Goodwin? I feel like I’m watching a sixth grader. Geez make the extra pass!!!!!!!!



  13. Goodwin is hampering UK's chemistry
    7:47 pm January 15, 2013 Permalink

    Every time we start to flow, Goodwin does something stupid. He can’t even keep from dribbling the ball off people’s feet. I think we should start the second half without him, and see how we look. I mean, what do we have to lose? On our current trajectory we’re a damn bubble team.



  14. Mike

    We still SUCK…how can we continue to come out and look so uninspired at the beginning of the game. Here we go AGAIN..giving the opponent a chance to stay in the game. The only one playing worth a dang is Wiltjer. How can we continue to miss so many in close shots??

    Goodwin to the lane by himself against 3 Tennessee defenders no help decides to try and bulldoze his way past and throws up a garbage shot as usual. Cal bench this guy – I bet Twany can at least pass.

    I’m so surprised at how this game is playing out. As I count it we should be down 10 if we were playing a better team.



  22. Mike
    8:05 pm January 15, 2013 Permalink

    This team will turn anyone’s stomach. NN was going to be the new leader?? He has 0 points at the half and no defense. UT shooting 56% and UK 38….UT hitting 50% from 3’s and UK 30%…this is our home court and the spread was high as 17 pts. for us. We have too many guys that don’t talk the talk and a whole team that can’t walk the walk. Scary thing is to think of Cal’s halftime speech.

    Goodwin is starting to remind me of Liggins during Liggins freshman year. Out of control driving into to people, kind of lost out there and doesn’t let the flow of the game come to him. Cal does not have the luxury of benching these 5 stars players because he would then be playing walk ons which might be worse.



  24. niaps

    We are what we are sports fans. This is the first team at UK that gets worse as the season goes on instead of better. Where is the heart, where is the passion, where is the will to outplay your opponent. WCS just will not see himself as a seven footer going against a 6’8 guy. Gee just dunk his azz Willy. Need of toughness is why these guys fail like they are.

    Wow…I am tempering my expectations. With horrible offense and below avg defense, they are NIT-bound!

    Goodwin has 3 shots that have been blocked and 2 shots that went in the basket. He has taken 8 shots total. Good Luck in the D-League next year.

    one thing I’ve noticed about this team is the excessive passing. When they beat their man off the dribble instead of driving to the basket, they pass out after the first step. Just go to the basket and get fouled or take a high percentage shot.



  28. mudcreekmark
    8:11 pm January 15, 2013 Permalink

    When Goodwin didn’t pass the ball ahead to Wiltjer at the beginning of the game tells me all I need to know about him. Goodwin is about Goodwin and trying to get his stats.I am not impressed with your stats. I hate to say it guys but not only does Poythress not have the motor, but he doesn’t have the ability right now to take over like everyone keeps expecting him to. He has zero handle and until he learns to dribble a basketball, he will continue to struggle. It will not happen this year. That is something that he will have to work on this summer and it may take 2 or 3 years for him to be comfortable enough to get to the basket on a consistent basis.



  29. Mike
    8:15 pm January 15, 2013 Permalink

    Will Goodwin ever hit 30% in a game. Mays should have never been given a scholly as he has no confidence in his shot anymore. Poythress only good for about 3-4 mins. a game. We are atrocious.

    I will not call out a young college kid. But if a college coach continues to allow a cancer within the team chemistry, he gets what he deserves. I know we are a player first program, I just think the players should at least respect the name on the front of the jersey.

    Polson wants it. He understand who he plays for

    Goodwin, see Wiltjer at 14:34 mark. That is team work

    What is up with Harrow tonight he cannot hit a layup and then goes into 3 defenders under the basket . Very low basketball IQ on this team. Best player on the floor for the Cats is Wiltger.



  36. Mike
    8:30 pm January 15, 2013 Permalink

    33. Well said…this team has no guts, heart, desire or pride. Did I miss anything? We might get lucky and still win this game, but it will be more of UT imploding than UK exploding. Cal still find the “connect button” with this team, and I am not sure the players aren’t pushing the disconnect button on him.



  37. R. Smith
    8:33 pm January 15, 2013 Permalink

    nothing against Polson but if we’re at the point where he’s getting minutes beyond garbage time, then this season is pretty much over. UK fans want to talk up walk-on level players who play hard as contributors but that is just fantasy. Its an indictment on the quality of your starters, not the walk-on (or walk-on granted scholarship because you had one)



  38. oh

    Did wiltjer just say to Harrow f…. him about Cal?

    This team simply sucks! Poythress, goodwin, WCS mays and wiltcher have no heart or hustle. Just lazy and looks to be going thru the motions at all times

    Not sure he ever had them but Cal has LOST this time. The announcers are being very kind, but they know we really SUCK!!!

    I’m sorry Mike, what did you have to say negative about NN. Yeah, he sux, no clue why we ever recruited him. Cal has no clue, I can’t live with his winning percentage or the national championship or the final four’s. It all just sux. We are horrible. Bring back Tubby and Billy, those were the good old days.

    Pathetic.

    Its just a bad mix of talent that can’t get chemistry. We desperately need a Darius Miller on this team.

    8:55 pm January 15, 2013 Permalink

    Watched the entire first half and it was ugly but I’ve also watch many YEARS of UK ball, we are down this year so flippin what. Louisville is number 1, Indiana is number 2. Any time you want to back one of those programs jump on it because I’ll stick with my pathetic coach and my pathetic team and we’ll suffer through this year. I’ll give you IU and Louisville next year and just give me Cal and the Cats and we’ll talk again. One year does not make a program. Yes we are not very good and you jump off the wagon if you feel so strongly but I’ve watched enough to know we’ll be back.

    How lucky are we? We are being outshot and outrebounded and still lead because of FT attempts.

    I am in no way jumping ship and never have i. I have been a die hard cat fan my whole life. I love Calipari and think he is a fantastic coach, I just think that this approach with poythress is clearly not working and needs a different approach rather then Cals normal strategy with players.

    55 I agree, can’t put my finger on the exact player but I would love to have Darius on this team or even Liggins. Missing one piece and not sure we’ll find that piece this year.

    59. Keith, you would never believe it by my posts but I am a diehard fan as well. I just have zero tolerance for the way this team plays…or doesn’t. It isn’t just Poythress but Cal’s approach is not working with the whole team so far.



  64. Run fat boy run
    9:02 pm January 15, 2013 Permalink

    Not a “super fan” by any stretch. But if people are going to show their ignorance it sure is hard to sit by and watch it. Proceed if that is the way you feel. The next batch of 20 year olds that never played a sport will be by next year and bitch when we don’t go undefeated. Good luck boys.



  65. Keith
    9:04 pm January 15, 2013 Permalink

    64. Mike, I agree this is just a different situation then he is used to and this may be a team Cal just needs to step back from and say just go play and see what happens.



  66. Run fat boy run

    64. Boom, very frustrating but anyone that picked this UK team preseason was out of touch. I did think we would be better than this but we are missing one darn player.



  67. R. Smith

    Wiltger player of the game for sure. Noel had a great second half too.



  69. Mike
    9:09 pm January 15, 2013 Permalink

    If we win this game, it will not be because of our ability. It will be because of UT’s inadequacy and Stokes pulling a Poythress. We are not showing improvement in any phase of our game and do not have more than 1 or 2 players playing a decent 20 mins. per game. We have no team chemistry, no collective will to win and this will not go down as one of Cal’s best year of coaching.



  70. Run fat boy run
    9:11 pm January 15, 2013 Permalink

    68, I know that, just gets old I guess. We are down, hate to see people pile on the team but I understand it. I know we are not very good right now but I’ve seen some really bad teams over the years and I can live with a 20 win team once every four years. Just an opinion, doesn’t mean we have to agree.



  71. R. Smith
    9:13 pm January 15, 2013 Permalink

    72. I agree, I don’t have much faith in this year but I’m not going to kick the players or the coach, just going to roll with it (and it is very disapointing). Heck I was as excited about this group of freshman as anyone was but we didn’t have a seasoned veteran on the bench to pick up the pieces. I still hope we can get in the tournament and make a little noise then prepare for next year, I think it’s gonna be a big year.

    If you can not see that Archie Goodwin is the problem with this team than you my friends are blind.

    Archie has been a big let down. Been a long time since I’ve witnessed someone play that out of control. If he would let the game come to him he might be ok but dang his is all over the place and out of control.

    Correct #79. Goodwin has become Joe Crawford of his 1st 3 years.

    9:28 pm January 15, 2013 Permalink

    “Oh” got it right above. When Harrow was pulled after picking up his third foul with 12:00 min to go, Cal began reaming him. As Cal walked away, on a closeup picture of Wiltjer sitting next to Harrow on the bench, Wiltjer said to Harrow, “F_ him.” This bothers me more than a loss almost. If Wiltjer and the other players are talking about Cal like that during games, I wonder if this is what the general consensus is outside of games and practices. Do the players dislike Cal?



  82. UK#92012
    9:30 pm January 15, 2013 Permalink

    How about a steal at half court by Archie with Kyle under the basket (wide open) with no pass, Archie takes it all the way and scores. Selfish! Archie fouls out we increase are lead and win. Things that make you go HMMM?
