Kyle Macy’s Tuesday News and Views

macy

Good evening, friends and trolls of KentuckySportsRadio.com. Tonight, we salute the life and career of Kyle Macy, who celebrates his 56th birthday on Tuesday. Macy played three seasons at Kentucky from 1977-1980 after one season at Purdue in his home state of Indiana. He was a three-time All-American and three-time All-SEC player in Lexington and won college basketball’s biggest prize with the 1978 team. He was selected with the 22nd pick in the NBA Draft by the Phoenix Suns and spent five years in purple and orange before a year with Chicago, a year with Indiana and then retirement from the league. He went on to coach Morehead State for nine seasons from 1997 to 2006.

These days, Macy is the color commentator during Kentucky’s basketball telecasts. He’s known for his ability to get injury updates mid-game by leaving the telecast to go ask a player on the bench what happened. It’s that kind of hustle and commitment to success that makes him so good at what he does. The same goes for his free throw shooting; he’s Kentucky’s second-best from the stripe all-time.

Join us in wishing Macy a Happy 56th Birthday.

Cats.

 Dominique Hawkins is set to announce his college decision on Wednesday. Hawkins, this year’s Mr. Basketball in Kentucky, will announce at 8:00 a.m. on Wednesday in a press conference at Madison Central in Richmond. With two spots opened up on next year’s roster with the departures of Archie Goodwin and Ryan Harrow, Hawkins likely has an offer from John Calipari and Kentucky, and he’ll certainly take it if that’s the case. Another telling sign from his recruitment came on Monday when Hawkins’ high school coach told Butler head coach Brad Stevens that it’s too late to get involved. Stevens called to make sure Hawkins was still off the market, according to The Cats Pause.

 Andrew Wiggins is still out there weighing his options and staying very tight-lipped as his recruitment winds down. He has yet to announce a date for his commitment but it should be coming sometime within the next two weeks. I’m sticking with my Kentucky prediction, despite quotes from his older brother suggesting otherwise. The potential for complete dominance in Lexington is just too much to turn down and he knows it’s where he will improve the most. Come on down, please.

 Nick Wiggins thinks his little brother should go somewhere else to build his own legacy, but Julius Randle knows Kentucky is the only place to win a championship.  “You want to win a national championship, come to Kentucky,” Randle recently said. “Enough said.”

“I went because I knew there’d be a lot of other guys every day helping me get better,” he added. “Whatever I have to do to help my team win, that’s what I’m worried about. There were times when Michael Kidd-Gilchrist didn’t start and he was the second pick in the draft, so I don’t think that really matters.”

 James Young is a guy who will find himself on the bench if Wiggins does pick the Cats. And he’s okay with that, he says. According to ZagsBlog, Young will be satisfied coming off the bench because he’s in it for the team. “We need him,” Young said. “The more great players, the easier it is for a national championship.”

It doesn’t sound like sacrifice and brother-keeping will be a problem with the 2013-14 Wildcats.

 Monday kicked off the last week of spring practice for Kentucky football and Mark Stoops called it a “decent” day. He was very disappointed with his defense after Saturday’s scrimmage but said they were better on Monday. He still sees a lot of room for improvement in the secondary, especially at corner and free safety, but thinks Ashely Lowery is very capable of being a good player at the strong safety position. You gotta think the corners will be much better when Nate Willis and Jaleel Hytchye arrive on campus too.

 42,000 tickets have been distributed for Saturday’s spring game. Stoops said, “It’s a tribute to our coaching staff and how hard they’re working and to our players. We know we have a long way to go, but we’re working extremely hard to get that done.”

 Monday night’s episode of Castle was great television. Did anyone else see it?

 You can win some great prizes by registering to become a bone marrow donor at four Lexington locations on Thursday. The Be The Match Bone Marrow Donor Drive will be in the BBSB breezeway and UK Student Center room 249 from 10:00-4:00, at the Johnson Center from 2:00-9:00, and at the Lexington Legends game at 7:00 p.m. All you have to do is stop by for a cheek swab and a little paperwork and you’ll be added to the registry. The drive hopes to reach 400 new donors and your participation will go a long way.

 Speaking of matches, Robbie and Ashley Claggett appear to be a great one…

That’ll do it for now. I hope I didn’t miss anything.

    Michigan had a lot of freshman on the court tonight and played really well. I’m assuming a number of those guys will be back, so we might have a challenge for pre-season #1 ranking. Arizona has a good crew returning as well and adds Gordon.

    I’m with #16. Any UK fan who says they pulled for U of L, you need to check yourself in the mirror and decide who’s side you’re on. They don’t root for us. They don’t like us. Screw this being a good sport crap. This one is simple. If you’re an absolute true blue UK fan, you DO NOT root for our most bitter rival in any sport at any time. If you do, then please transfer your allegiance to them. We don’t need or want you.

    UK FANS LISTEN UP. Do you remember Louisville fans rooting for UK to win it all last year, because I don’t. They get on our sites and bash us for everything. They make fun of Noel’s injury, and UK fans go and wish Ware a speedy recovery and hope they win it all. Statements like “Bring it back to KY and I hope you win it all” by Cal and Pitino are just just to save face. They know they are ambassadors for this state. GO CATS! STAY TRUE! GET OUT BANDWAGON FANS!

He is a great coach and it was great to see him win one more. It is great for the state of Kentucky and i absolutly hate tobacco row schools. Basketball is Kentucky and we will kick Loservilles a $$ next year. No worries, little brother will know its place again.

Kentucky has won two straight national titles as a state. Let’s make it three peat next year! Hope my fellow UK fans stay classy and give credit where credit is due. I am sure we all would have loved to see this year’s UK players play as hard and as a team as the Cardinals did tonight.

    The ‘right way’ Cards. Easy when you recruit well and the NBA is not interested EVEN after four years. Peyton was a burger boy and will not get drafted; Chane a burger boy and looks like he has no choice but to come back; Blackshear was a burger boy and he isn’t going anywhere. Did you guys have agents and runners? Wall and Cousins would be seniors this year. Be glad Cal encourages them to go.

The rest of our attention is back at UofK where we have the best recruiting class ever, where calipari and us as kentucky fans are doing things that no one in this sport has done, including you guys who have won 3 national championships, are intellectually or creatively capable of doing. Do we need to say more? get off of this sight and go kill each other.

    UofL fans. Congrats. You won a title this year. The fact is you had a better team than Calipari one out of 4 years. Pitino is 1-4 against Calipari. Pitino had won 1 title now in 12 years at UofL. UK will be the better team next year making it 4 out of 5 years that’s the case and probably be the favorite to win again. So why make an ass of yourselves talking so much crap tonight. Uk is considered the best program of all time and UofL is nowhere even near that conversation. So why not enjoy your season and your moment instead of the trash because you have no argument whatsoever as far as programs go. talking trash on here just shows how pissed you still are that you ARE NOT uk even moments after winning a title. That’s sad really. U can’t even just enjoy your moment and first title since 1986. UK has won 3 titles since 86, you have won 1. Uk has 8. You have 3. So why get into a conversation with UK fans. That’s just stupid. Enjoy your moment because you don’t get as many of these moments as UK does.

    And just because you get called for more fouls doesn’t mean the refs are against you. Your strategy on defense is to foul like crazy since they can’t all get called because refs like to keep fouls called even. Sometimes a team fouls more. They were horrid on both ends tonight, allowing that style of play, but I disagree with the notion that teams should have an even number of fouls called.

Actually, not sure what UL website I could go to, never bothered searching it out. Have fun tonight Cards fans, I remember our 3rd Championship…. oh wait… actually I don’t… we have won 5 since. I live in Louisville and watched the game at a bar with all UL fans. One was actually wearing an anti-Lexington shirt, not sure if he got the memo but you weren’t playing us. Can you imagine us in the title game against Michigan and you decide that an anti-Louisville shirt would be the appropriate attire? Me neither. I am not mad they won, they were the best team in a down year in college basketball. But, I actually sent out congrats texts to my UL friends. I immediately regret that after seeing these comments and remembering that none of my UL friends did that for me last year.

They were the best team, they played hard and they deserved it. No reason for Kentucky fans to be upset. I might have gained some respect back for Pitino, though he’ll always be the 15-second man (no coming back from that embarrassment). He’s won two titles at two different schools and he’s the only one to do it. We’ll always have a piece of that glory, whether U of L fans like it or not. Plus, we have eight (nine coming soon) titles, they have three. They’ll always be little brother. So congrats, little bro, now act like you’ve been there before.

    145. Yeah it is nice to see a college team win with foreign kids. They didn’t use Americans, or inner-city kids from poor areas of our country to get the latest D-league NBA player, They went straight to the poorest ghetto in west africa or cuba, found the tallest looking retard that they could, and promised him a small amount of food every time he made positive strides in ricky-3-stacks defensive system by grabbing a player mid-court, punching him in the face, tripping him, kicking him in the head and shanking him 4-5 times (that skill will come in handy in prison).

    I guess if you consider the “right way” playing dirty and taking as many cheap shots as possible in order to keep from being called on it to take advantage of a ref wanting to make your game semi-bearable, and basically recruiting the college version of “the air up there”, then yah, loserville did that.

    “The secondary story was the officiating. At times the referees appeared to be letting the teams play a physical game while at other times…not.” — Deadspin

    “Forgotten, too, was the uneven officiating”- Washington Post

    UofL deserved the title. UofL fans do not. Here is why.

    Last year when uofl lost four of six, uofl fans whined that Pitino should be fired. They wrote letter to tbe Courier-Journal bashing him.

    They make a final four and all of a sudden “Pitino is better THAN Cal”

    This year they lose 3 straight and Pitino sucks and Siva sucks.

    UOFL wins title and Pitino is then a legend and Siva is an all-time great.

    When UK “choked” Cal’s first two years in the tournament Uofl fans mocked him by saying “He cant coach.”

    When uk won it all he “cheated” of course.

    At “truth” the “right way”?

    I guess covering up a sex scandal, not punishing a coach who pays women hush money and money to kill a child, wasting tax payers’ money on a trial, injuring and ending the careers of a dozen kids, off the court troubles with the police with No punishment and forcing a half dozen less talented kids to transfer is “the right way” you are correct lmao.

Then next year Ricky P going “GIVE” his permission to Ware transfer somewhere else with his shoe print on Ware’s backside. Yeah stay classy Uvel!

    “Klain said officers had made 12 arrests and 270 incident runs as of 2:20 a.m. for reports of shots fired in celebration, domestic disputes, disorderly conduct, alcohol intoxication and fights.

    The arrests included four for alcohol intoxication and disorderly conduct, one for receiving stolen firearm, one for a handgun seized, two for juvenile disorderly conduct. There were 70 calls for shots fired in celebration.”

    I knew none of them would remember how to act. Most of them can’t remember the last title anyway.

    I was raised a Cat fan but am a product of UL grad school so I do genuinely support both programs. That said, and UK’s overall outstanding performances under Calipari notwithstanding, I truly miss the days when the UK squads were comprised of a mix of local and national talent that stayed for more than a year or two. The longer they stay, the closer is the bond between the fans, coaches, and players. So the losses hurt a little more, but the victories are more meaningful too. I understand it’s a trade off, but I personally prefer to experience the deeper relationships over the increased chances for a national title each year. With the more traditional approach, you are rooting both for the program and the individual players. Under the one-and-done approach, you are mainly justs rooting for the program. My $.02.

    What a childish immature site. I love Kentucky basketball listening to Matt in the mornings,pre-game shows 90 minutes before the games but I also pull for Louisville and other Kentucky schools. Matt should be courteous and a graceful loser and be for our state when they play other teams especially the big ten. The childish immature Kentucky fans that can not enjoy Louisville winning deserve everything the Card fans give them.

    “With the more traditional approach, you are rooting both for the program and the individual players. Under the one-and-done approach, you are mainly justs rooting for the program”
    What are these “approaches” you are talking about. Cal, nor anyone else goes out and recruits a one and done player because no such thing exists. A player is not a one and done player until after they play a year of college and then leave, Prior to that they are simply one of the most talented players in the country in high school. Poythress was a top 10 recruit. He is not one and done, Rick Pitino recruited Marquis Teague heavily and he ended being a one and done. Pitino also recurited Stephon Marbury, a “none and done”, so don’t buy ito this myth that Cal has one approach, that being to recruited ‘one and dones” and Pitino has another. Cal is just better at recruiting the more talented players. They both go after them, but Cal has more success.

    Andrew Wiggins has already made a name for himself. The only reason he is stuggling with his decision is because of his family trying to tell him where to go. I made the same mistake when choosing a college after my senior year, I listened too much to other people’s opinion instead of doing where I wanted to go.
