    Today’s KSR word is Malarkey… I wonder how many people can call in and use it. Tomorrows football game will be a bunch of malarkey!

    The Hoodie in the pic is nice and I would like it, but it’s too expensive. I’m still broke from buying my Platinum warm-up jacket which was $100 and I justify it by wearing it every single day. Great for fall too btw…ok thread..carry on!

    Question MAtt: WHich is the greater choke job of the year? Rider Cup or Reds?

    also

    Ok Kentucky’s 2013 class just got interesting based on info just released. Apparently UK is much higher on Aaron Gordons list than expected and him and Marcus Lee are expected to be possibly a package deal. Say Lee pulls the trigger soon after BBM… and Gordon follows suit. Does that run Randle off? Does the committ of Young make Randle decide earlier to guarantee a spot. What happens if Wiggins
    reclassifies and Gordon and Lee are committed? What happens if Wiggins doesnt reclassify? What happens if Noah Vonleh takes a visit? I mean right now you have the following committed:
    PG: Harrison
    SG: Harrison, Young
    Wing: Willis

    High interest Prospects:

    Wing: Wiggins
    PF: Randle, Gordon, Lee, Vonleh (if visit is taken)

    Does Cal pull a Pitino and ask Willis to walk on? How does this play out? Its a nice problem to have though lol!

    4 – Without a doubt Ryder Cup. The Reds was a choke job for sure, but they were facing an uphill battle as soon as Cueto went down 8 pitches into game 1.

    Let’s be honest. It is great to get 4 out of the top 5 recruits, but wiggins is the main prize. If we weren’t to get wiggins we are gonna need all 4 of them to counterbalance 1 wiggins.

    I may be wrong with this comparison but to me James Young is a combo of Doron Lamb and DeAndre Liggins. The smooth stroke and floater of Lamb and the length and athleticism of DeAndre Liggins.

    2014 – Wiggins (if reclassify)

    Randle never cancelled a BBM trip. To anywhere. His ‘official visit to us was during the weekend when all the former pro’s came back and played in the exhibition game. I thought the reason he was not going anywhere was because of his high school’s homecoming.

    Add any of Randle, Lee, Gordon to the three best wings in the country – and imagine the what-if scenario of Cauley-Stein and Wiltjer returning. If Wiggins reclassifies, it would be off the charts. If not, a NC is still very possible. This year’s team will challenge in March, as well.

    160 — I’m sorry, I just don’t see it. I think they’ll be good, but I do not see them winning a national championship and I think they’ll be very lucky to get back to the Final 4. If you want to talk about how games played out in last year’s tournament, you must then remember how close Louisville’s games were against Davidson, New Mexico, and Florida. In fact, Florida was dominating them (up like 16 points) and should have put them away. Also, the fact is everyone isn’t back for the Cardinals. Losing Chris Smith is a big loss for them as he was a productive scorer, a starter, and a hard-nosed player for them. Again, I’m not concerned about this Louisville team.

    #183 & #184 Honestly, I don’t give a shit about Pitino. I did not say he could not coach or say that I was bitter in some sort of way! IMO they were just an ordinary team most of the year; in fact a lot of Tardinal fans were clamoring for him to go. It wasn’t until he allowed the team to play their style during the tournaments that they began to play really well. Oh, and it’s spelled Merriam, asshole! Did you pick up and undergad from UL?

You are correct, even Pitino said that all year long. Funny thing is our “ordinary” team went to a Final Four.

    Nothing against Pitino here – felt a little spurned by him when he left for the pros and then came back with the Cards, but I’m over it. Kind of like having a hot ex-girlfriend go away to college and then come back in town sleeping with an acquaintance you don’t really like, but then she gets fat and develops herpes. ๐Ÿ˜€

    Seriously, Pitino is an excellent coach (particularly with defense), and when he was at UK he was a leading innovator at the college level. His pressing / trapping style of full court defense coupled with good three point shooters was deadly at the time. However, times have changed, and the game has evolved, and what worked then might not work as well now. Who knows if he would have kept on winning at the same pace had he decided to stay at UK. In today’s game, Calipari has mastered the art of getting highly talented young players to play high level defense while utilizing a potent slashing, dribble drive offense. I think Cal is at the top of the college game right now, not only with recruiting but also in team development. Pitino hat “it” in the 90’s, K had it in the early – mid 2000’s, and now I think Cal has come into his own. I still respect Pitino for all he did at UK, but I think he is a little bit behind the curve with today’s high level players. This might be their year – a lot will depend on how Blackshear develops. It’s going to be an exciting basketball season in the area, that’s for sure!



  215. BleedRed

    I’m obviously infatuated with Pitino and hang on every word he says. I loved him from afar when he was at UK, and love him more at UL. Would love if he burst my “bubble”. Like to troll on KSR cause there is absolutely nothing exciting going on with my school.
