    Happy Pi Day Everybody! Matt, Ryan, Drew: What is your favorite flavor of Pie? By the way, according to Tom Leach there is no computer in the stuido so don’t expect the guys to be checking the show thread much today. Also, as much as I like the SEC Tournament, I’d much rather watch The Big Bang Theory over Arkansas Vandy game…but it looks like WKYT is giving us the game instead. 424 days since Matt first mentioned the BCG Podcast…

    Matt, BOISE ST. lost last night (in the midnight game). This was big for the Cats. It should free up serious room on the bubble even if the cats were to lose in Nashville. Something worth talking about in my opinion.

    Matt – you might want to clarify one thing: at least one caller told Dick Gabriel and his roundtable crew last night that KSR was talking and speculating several current players would “transfer” after this season. Dick only said no one heard of it and it’s not good timing to discuss it now (totally agree with him)! I couldn’t find any article here and not sure why the called said that. What’s your take? Welcome Back 🙂

    Matt-To the Reddit thing, it is called an AMA, or an Ask Me Anything. The subreddit for Lexington was trying to think of celebrities, whether national or local, who had ties to Lexington. Your name was brought up more than once. Basically, it’s a Q&A session with internet strangers.

    don’t line Cutler up again for the show unless he agrees
    to have Bill Cunningham and his #1 fan John Short as co-hosts.

    Matt, I so disagree with about UL winning the championship. I am a TRUE BLUE Fan but if UK can’t win, why not another KY school. How COOL would that be to have Ky teams win 2 years in a row! I can’t stand UL fans, most of them (not all) are very obnoxious but really, you have to cheer for another KY school!!!
    Not DUKE by any stretch or IU!

    If the pits of hell were to open up, and we were to end up with a Louisville/Indiana championship game, which is your horse in that fight, Matt?

    As much as it pains me, I think (aside from being angry with either winning and hoping for the NCAA to call it a stalemate with no winner for the first time in history) I would have to go with Louisville.

    A little part of me died when I typed that.

    As much as I hated Knight during the “depression years” here in Indy, Crean has become my all time favorite to dislike. He replied that it was during the heat of battle and it takes him time to cool off. WTF? First of all had that assistant coach not gotten fired his job would still be in the frozen tundra, secondly he wasn’t an alumi at IU…..He would would’ve eaten through a mile of whale excreament to kiss Knight’s ring finger!

    If pundits were going to call out Cal as a mediocre coach in years past because he had not won the championship, then what does that make Tom Crean? He has done NOTHING since he had lightning in a bottle with Wade. If not for that, he would be just another mid-major coach. He is feeling the pressure now, which may explain his douchey behavior. Then again, maybe he is just that way!

    We’d have to root for Louisville to win the championship if it came down to IU / UL in the final game. Doesnt IU already have 5 titles? I don’t want to see them win another title and get one step closer to our 8.

    With all the talk, smack or other, the NCAA would jump at the chance to match us with IU. You know they are always looking for ratings($$) and stories create that.



  90. BlueRedNeck
    10:40 am March 14, 2013 Permalink

    I am beginning to dislike IU in the same way that I dislike Duke – instead of playing legitimate defense, they flop all over the place and fake injuries. And Crean TEACHES them to do that. At least Duke doesn’t have a net cutting ceremony when they lose on Senior Day.

    If the bracket winds up anything NEAR what Lunardi has put I think If UK plays very well I see this being their road:

    La Salle
    Pitt
    Bucknell
    (Worst Case- Gonzaga)(Best-an 8 or 9)
    Butler/Temple

    That is a GREAT DRAW!

    Well it kind of pisses off listeners when he starts the show with literally saying, I don’t care what you have to say.

    Look I doubt Ryan or Matt or Drew care either, but you guys don’t come right out and say that. It’s more about his general ability to turn off callers or listeners.

    If you had to live here in Louisville, and had to listen to ALL the media around here talk about how great everything about UL is, you’d change your mind about them winning anything!!I hate their fans, I’m married to one, they are arrogant and make fun of UK every chance they get. I hope anyone other than UL wins NCAA, except IU!!

    Will Post This Again, Take It For What It’s Worth:

    Had a good friend tell me Poythress and WCS will return. This dude told me Cal before his name was brought up and Stoops so whoever he knows, its legit info… Also told me UK lands Randle AND Wiggins: Why you ask? Heres Why:

    PG: Andrew Harrison/Dominique Hawkins
    SG: Aaron Harrison/James Young (Can backup the SF position but is a natural 2-guard
    SF:
    PF: Julius Randle/Wiltjer/Poythress/Marcus Lee-
    Randle has the handle to play the 3 but you need his body down low
    Poythress doesnt have the handle to play the 3
    Wiltjer is well, Wiltjer
    Marcus Lee at 6’10 is just too big to play the 3

    C: Willie Cauley-Stein/ Dakari Johnson

    Where is our SF? Wiggins is all alone, that is why he comes. Cal is selling getting able to PRACTICE against NBA caliber talent… I would love to see a scrimmage if that happens.

    Harrison v. Hawkins (btw Hawkins went for 29 v. Harrison)
    Harrison v. Young
    Wiggins v. Randle (just cuz Randle is most versitile)
    Poythress v. Lee
    Cauley-Stein v. Dakari Johnson

    YIKES. UK will have the #1 and #2 team in the nation lol!

    Point 1: Cutler is a joke- how does he have a job in the media?

    Point 3: Adidas uniforms are the worst. ever.

    Point 4: I wish I was in Nashville right now.

    97 – I had to add Hawkins to the next page. My little notebook only had enough room for 16. I sure hope we still get Wiggins, but wow, how loaded would that team be. It would be the greatest team of all time. I am sure this year’s freshmen will have learned a great deal from this season. They expected to have a much better year than they have had and will have something to prove and will have finally bought in. Having a top point guard to lead them will make all the difference. Going against the incoming freshmen next year in practice will make everyone that much better. I would love to see all the practices next year. They will probably be better than most of the games.

    lol so I just posted this and it was removed:

    MAtt couldnt be more wrong:

    1: Andrew is PG
    2: Aaron is SG (better player, better jumper, extended range)
    3: We need shooters? Aaron and James can fill it up.
    4: Matchups in practice are wrong:

    Harrison v. Hawkins
    Harrison v. Archie
    Young v. Poythress
    Lee v. Randle
    Johnson v. WCS
    Wiltjer v. Willis

    just to have even competition: not by position

    Lineup Starts: (we go big)

    Andrew Harrison
    Archie Goodwin
    Poythress
    Randle
    WCS

    Ends:
    Andrew Harrison
    Aaron HArrison
    Julius Randle
    Alex Poythress
    Willie Cauley Stein

    Where Matt will be wrong: Archie will go Pro.

    #154- Goodwin, Poythress, Wiltjer, WCS, Hood or Polson, Harrison Twins, Johnson, Lee, Young, Willis, Randle and Hawkins. Unlikely to get Wiggins- could be 2nd or 3rd behind UNC/Kansas for him.
