Late Saturday Night Notes


RAAAAAAARGH, I am a MAN, sir

If there was ever a day to be grateful for television, it was today. Starting with the Kentucky/Tennessee game at noon, it was a sports-loving couch potato’s paradise, with an unbelievable North Carolina upset, the 49ers’ last minute win over the Saints, and tonight’s main event: Tebow vs. the Patriots (so much for that, by the way). Or, and for BTI you suckers out there who let the lady take over the remote, the Miss America pageant. Tell me, how was Miss Kentucky this year? Hot? Good to know.

Let’s go over a few notes before tucking in on this cold winter’s night.

— For the second game in a row, the Cats offset a poor first half performance with a gutsy late second half comeback to beat the Vols, 65-62. Mr. Hammer has a mighty fine recap of the game below, but here were my highlights:

Michael the Freaking Man-Gilchrist
It’s gotten to the point where I’m almost sick of saying it: Michael Kidd-Gilchrist is a beast. MKG has a been a little off since his national coming out party against Louisville, but he returned to top form in the second half against the Vols today. His three with 4:54 left in the game was absolutely clutch, padding the Cats’ lead to four. He finished with 17 points and 12 rebounds, his third double-double this season, but once again, his impact was felt beyond the box score; Gilchrist chased down loose balls, fought for rebounds, and scrapped for steals. He took two hard falls in the game and appeared to be injured, scaring me so badly I almost called my mother, but he quickly collected himself, and got back in the game. After UK seized the lead late in the second half, forcing Tennessee to call a timeout to regroup, Kidd-Gilchrist surged into the huddle, energizing his teammates and pumping them up for the final minutes. After the game, Anthony Davis said Kidd-Gilchrist was upset with his teammates at halftime and let them know it:

“He was a man who came into the locker room mad and really feisty because we wasn’t playing like we was supposed to. That’s just how he plays. He’s got a will to win. He brings a lot: the energy, rebounding, scoring offensively, free throws. He’s a great kid. I’m glad we had him on our team.”

That says it all.

Anthony Davis steps up
Speaking of Davis, he had another monster game, with 18 points and four blocks, putting him one shy of the single-season school record of 83. Here’s a fun fact: as of this morning, Anthony Davis has more blocks than 286 Div 1 teams. He and Gilchrist continue to step up when this team stutters, and much of the kudos for today’s win should go to Davis for his ability to completely change the game defensively. He’s quickly becoming Mr. Consistent for this squad, and must be an absolute nightmare for teams to prepare for.

A win, again, is a win.
Feel a little deja vu during the last ten minutes of the game? The atmosphere inside Thompson-Boling Arena had a distinct “Assembly Hall” feeling to it, with Tennessee playing to their full potential and the Cats failing to fire on all cylinders. However, the Cats, a month wiser and more experienced, didn’t succumb to the pressure. They dug deep, and found a way to win. And that, in light of Florida State’s thrilling upset of North Carolina earlier today, means everything. Let this postgame quote from Anthony Davis warm your heart:

We have a will to win. We’re a great ball club. We never give up. I think we were down like 10 with a couple minutes left, and we just kept fighting, kept fighting. We don’t like losing. We just got a will to win.”

— If you missed it, North Carolina lost to Florida State by an astonishing thirty-three points. The Tarheels were absolutely and completely embarrassed, showing no heart or pride. In what may have been the oddest ending to a game ever, Florida State coach Leonard Hamilton suggested that Roy Williams and his bench go ahead and go to the locker room with 14 seconds left in the game so they wouldn’t risk being injured by fans storming the court. Call it the Indiana effect?

— Now for the Boone’s Butcher Shop Tweet Beat Injury Report:

— Jarnell Stokes is for real. And so are his ridiculously long eyelashes.

Bullitt East star Derek Willis may be near a decision, and according to inside sources(which I ain’t paying for), it’s looking good for the Cats. Willis’ father said his son may announce his decision as soon as this week. “He’s 100 percent, knows what he wants to do and what his goals and aspirations are.” C-A-T-S, CATS CATS CATS?

Want more? Don’t worry, Drew and I will be back bright and early to recap the win over the dirty snitches and prepare you for Randall Cobb’s big game against the Giants. See you then.

    I criticized you when you claimed that Kidd-Gilchrist was the most important player on the team. I will concede now that it is at the very least a toss-up between Davis and Kidd-Gilchrist. He was absolutely unbelievable today. I swear that kid is made of rubber.

    I can’t find any reference to incidents where NCAA basketball athletes were injured by court-storming fans, yet both coaches and the announcers implied that UNC’s players were in imminent danger. This type of behavior may be relatively common at soccer matches…

    I thought Darius might have lost it for us there for a minute. Didn’t throw it in to Teague that first time. What a way to crush a freshmans confidence. What if he threw it into him next time, they fouled right away and he missed the free throws, thinking to much about Darius not trusting him. Then Darius hit those clutch free throws and redeemed himself.



  27. Calipari'sInYourEar
    3:50 am January 15, 2012 Permalink

    #26 – Ap – Darius did exactly what experience told him to do when he refused to throw the ball in to Teague.

    Teague is from Indiana, and he had his chance to cap the win there with a 1 & 1 that he demanded (by not passing it to an open man, thus was fouled) in the final seconds of that game. Having made that decision, he chose to take his team on his shoulders, and he missed the free throw.

    Miller, as a Senior, didn’t pass the ball to Teague, because he didn’t trust him. This trust was lost by Teague.

    All coaches we play from here on out are going to force Teague to beat us at the line if we are only up by 1 or 2 in the final seconds. They will instruct their players to try to foul our worst free throw shooters (the one’s who have shown they can’t hit the clutch free throws).

    Once Kentucky came back out of the timeout, the ball was passed in and Miller kept it, demanding the foul. Tennessee players responded less anxiously at attempting to foul him hoping their pressure would force him to pass, but the clock was against them and they were called for the foul.

    And what WE want then occurs… OUR SENIOR AT THE LINE TO TAKE THE FREE THROWS. He drains them both. End of game. Miller got it done.



  28. Calipari'sInYourEar
    3:56 am January 15, 2012 Permalink

    Coaches watch the film. They know who can’t hit clutch free throws (based on game film they have watched). Since Teague missed the free throw at Indiana at the end, and that was the only game we have lost…

    EVERY COACH KNOWS TEAGUE IS THE GUY TO FOUL. That is, until he proves different (and hits his free throws… if (a big if) he gets another chance).

    I want Miller at the line. I’d take Gilchrist at the line. And because of Davis’s showing in previous games late at the line, I would be ok with him there as well now.

    But there’s no reason for Teague to have to prove himself there. He’s a dribbler and a passer… so PASS THE DAMN BALL TO YOUR SHOOTER.

    Know your role!

    Not sure the love affair with this kid Willis, he’s just not that talented. Not trying to demean the young man, but seen him play, and the talent is just not there for a UK team with elite talent. Reminds me of of another young man on our team that is currently injured we thought was an elite talent and isn’t. Before you blast me, take a look at his games that have talented players vs. non-talent and you will understand.

    Enjoyed the column, but disagree with your assessment of the atmosphere in Thompson-Boling Arena. I was there, and never did it approach anything that Assembly Hall offers. IU is as passionate about basketball as we are, but not so with UT. I was in Assembly Hall in 1980 and in 2009 (the last two UK wins in Bloomington) and would say that both crowds were much more intimidating than UT’s. I can only imagine the 2011 crowd in Bloomington. But the main thing is that we are getting the job done, unlike games like Ole Miss last year.

    Mayble Cal’s biggest challenge now is to find WTF is up with Miller and Lamb. Their dismal play has not been a 1 game aberration. Darius can’t call on any heart or pride on a regular basis and may go down in UK lore as 1 of the biggest SLACKERS of all time. Silence of the Lamb is a real puzzler. One would think in both cases that their friends or teammates would give them enough grief over recent play to entice them to play up to their abilities.

    Has anyone heard from the ESPN UNC blog after the beatdown they took Saturday. I can say that was very satisfying to watch. They just laid down and took it like Tyler said. No heart, no pride, no guts, they gave up, and it said a lot. None of us will expect the national media to beat their entire team up the way they all took shots at Terrence Jones when they had a let down but thats what should happen if equal coverage and comment was distributed. The UNC team is talented and no one argues it, and they could still certainly win the national championship (goodness we all hope that isn’t the case), but they will never be what people made them out to be in the preseason. All those article, the ESPN UNC blog creation for them alone, and praise, was just pure homerism. They were overrated and will not be an elite team after that loss. Its that damaging.

    #75-I was referring to his constant speeches and self-advertising, and preaching to everyone about his religion. I didnt say he said anything “wrong”, I’m just saying he or any athlete doesnt need to be out there preaching their religion to the media and so forth…his religion is his thing and if thats what hes into, thats cool, im not hating on him for it, im sayin its just overkill. Hes on ESPN and sports networks because he is a “professional athlete”, so he needs to stick to football, team, on-the-field stuff. You see what him doing that has started: people on a UK sports message site arguing religion. U got religious freaks out here hailing Tebow as the second coming, like he is some evangelist like Billy Graham, which he has earned by his comments. Im not hating on religion, im sayin this is a sports website that should stay at sports talk, which Tebow also needs to stick with. Maybe when he retires he can get into a career with the church if thats what hes interested in, but for while hes an NFL player, some of us dont want to hear it.

    Why do you people hate him so much? He has NEVER pounded his chest and said he was the man. He just works harder than 99% of the rest of the nfl. He will get better in the off season – wanta bet?

    Oh yeah, and just cause you don’t believe in God – doesn’t mean the rest of us don’t have to. That’s a bit of a liberal mindset, don’t ya think?

    #80 might want to re-read my comments about religion. This is a SPORTS site, and what we all believe or dont believe is irrelevant on here and not for anyone to address or question….But since u brought it up, yes LIBERAL, and very proud of it, so what’s it to u? Get over it. Im not asking ur beliefs, I could care less, go to another website if u want to discuss that.

    6. Dad’s dead, but I preyed for an answer. He’s busy polishing the golden streets. Said he’d get back to me.
    7. Wife was at church worshiping Tebow. I’ll ask her when she gets home.
    8. (Really clever smiley-face) My friend is Agnostic, so he’s not sure Tebow even exists.
    9. So.

    I wish people would give Darius more cred for his free throws. He may not have had the best game but he made the two free throws that counted.

    #79, while I respect your position on this issue and I am no church fanatic, I am somewhat educated in matters of the church and/or Christianity. There are some (many) who would argue that it is the duty of a Christian to “witness, to be a testimony, to preach the Gospel of Jesus’ love”. Tebow’s weaknesses on the football field have been well-documented, but I don’t believe it is right to hate a person for following their religious beliefs.

    I could offer several quote and links in relation to the “duty” of a Christian, but I offer the following:

    “Acts 20:24: But my life is worth nothing to me unless I use it for finishing the work assigned me by the Lord Jesus–the work of telling others the Good News about the wonderful grace of God”

    “Mark 5:19: And he did not permit him but said to him, “Go home to your friends and tell them how much the Lord has done for you, and how he has had mercy on you.” ”

    “John 20:21: Jesus said, “Even as My Father hath sent Me, so send I you.” ”

    You have every right to believe as you will, but Mr. Tebow probably feels strongly about his faith and his duties as a Christian and believes that his position in the public eye is an opportunity given to him to spread the word of God.

    By the way, I don’t agree that Tebow works harder than 99% of the NFL, as others (fans) have stated. I believe that nearly every athlete at this elite level is there because of their talent AND hard work. I do find it somewhat insulting to imply that others NFL athletes do not work hard.



  87. yeah first!!

    Al B. Sure.. those are horrible sayings! Why would you quote those? For every decent saying you can pick out of that horrid book you can find a horrible one. Slavery, killing and so on. If you need quotes go to buddah. No contradictions in that book at least. And by the way, I like tebow a lot. He is just a bad QB. He will make a good tight end.



  88. yeah first!!

    And don’t go into the contradictions in the tripitaka. I know there are. I was just making a point.

    87: Please read my post again. I didn’t say these are my beliefs, I said these are Christian beliefs, and Tebow being a Christian probably believes the same and feels that it is his DUTY to spread his testimony. I respect your right to believe as you choose, you should respect the rights of others to do as well. Not sure if Buddah speaks on this, but I’m pretty sure the US Constitution mentions it.



  90. yeah first!!

    No… I got ya. But you brought the quotes up. You shouldn’t do that. That book along with the others has created more hypocrites and murderers than anything else in history. Tebow will figure it out if he is smart enough. But you should never take up the cause and promote it. The constitutions protects a lot of things….. whether they are right or wrong. There are a lot of impressionable people on here (nice word for not very bright) and if you give examples like that associated with tebow…..well…. you just further the…….
