    Glad to get the win! Now if we win Saturday, we will be back in the conversation for the tournament. Glad to Jorts as the Y…which reminds me #JohnShortForTheY

    One thing was sure, they were more comfortable allowing Vandy open layups as opposed to open 3 pointers…how many times did Vandy get to the rim?

    Nothing is ever easy with this team yet beating Missouri and Florida at home might be possible as neither team plays their best on the road. Let Jorts do the ‘Y’ at those games too for good charma!

    I cracked up a couple times when you could hear Cal yelling at Harrow to put pressure on the man with the ball 40 feet away from the basket. Harrow would run at the guy and the Vandy player would simply go by him creating a 5 on 4.
    I loved the effort though, aside from the scoring drought it was fun to watch.

    I think fans are reading way too much into this. It was a close win against a really bad team. This team just isn’t very good. Good players, but not so good team.

    The way that Vanderbilt got to the rim last night I would say our chances of beating Missouri are slim to none. We gave up way too many easy baskets and barely beat a pretty miserable team. It was a victory and that was nice. The usual suspects played with better effort. But the fact that we’re celebrating a victory over a bottom-dwelling team pretty much sums up the season. Going to have to play much, much better perimeter D on Saturday.

    What do you all think about Poythress’ performance? Do you all think 7 points and 4 boards is going to be good enough to be effective? The dude should be getting 20 and 10 consistently. He’s got the talent to do so.

    #9 I believed Vandy played a very good game as well. They hit free throws and hit 10 3s. Any win now is a good win. lol It’s just good to see them playing hard and having fun. I noticed more high fives and chest bumps than in this game than any game all year.

    31 – yes it did. The Cats are not going to get any help outside of themselves – it’s all on them to make the tourney. I think they will have to beat Mizzou or UF to make the tourney as an at-large; otherwise they will have to make some serious noise in the SEC tourney.

    Whether or not you think Cal has done well with this team or not, you have to admit he has tried just about everything with these guys. They looked like they were having fun last night so maybe keeping them loose with the dodge ball and wiffle ball thing is a good go to move.

    Matt, there is no place called Waddy Peytona. There is Waddy, and there’s Peytona. They’re on opposite sides of I-64. Different places. Your newest favorite post game caller was in Waddy. And yes, I’m pretty sure he was speaking Spanish at the start.

    The “good fan” debate fascinates me. There’s a real fine line between good fan and irrational fan. Are good fans the ones that refuse to see the flaws in the team? Last night gave me hope, but the fans that say we’ve turned the corner and are headed to the final four are delusional. I hope it happens, but there’s no way you can say that based on their performance to date.



  66. Jamal Meeks
    10:21 am February 21, 2013 Permalink

    Ryan Harrow will be a huge key to any hope we have Saturday. Polson simply cannot stay in front of Flip Pressey. Mizzou is erratic but looking at their roster its easy to see why they were so highly regarded.



  67. TheBurghCat

    it wasnt the margin of victory thats important but the energy and intensity the team displayed. It was the most energy Ive seen in a long time and you could tell they cared and meant business. Thats what was so impressive. Harrow showed how much of a difference he can make when he’s attacking and when he’s in the right place mentally.

Also, I loved that the team took the ball strong to the basket and finished several big dunks. Great guard play and contributions from the team. The team “jump” at center court in the first half was awesome…Go CATS!!!

    Are you sure the Spanish wasn’t coming from the TV, rather than from Ernie? I don’t know but to me it sounded like his TV was on in the background. Anyway, it was definitely “como” and “esta bien” but without knowing the context, it’s impossible to know what it was really about.

    My son in law called last night and was going to take Vandy and the 11 points and was going to bet $500. He wanted to know how I felt about it. He and I both agreed it was easy money. The best bet of the year. Of course he couldn’t find his billfold to get his credit card info and missed out on putting the bet down.Now the next best bet will come this weekend. I say Missouri will probably be favored by 3 or 4 points. Missouri will beat us by 20 plus. If we cannot stop Vandys guards from getting to the rim, there is no way we can handle Phil Pressey. WCS again will get exposed against their bigs.Pressey will have15 assists and they will dunk all over us.

    Vandy is awful but they did play pretty well IMO last night. They moved the ball and executed well and were shooting lights out from 3. Some people think a 4 pt. victory over an awful team diminishes the win. We didn’t play well on defense but Vandy’s offensive execution had a lot to do with that.

    Ernie mumbles the first part. I hear “como” in there which means “how”, and the second part is definetly “esta bien” but the way he inflects the words it sounds like he mean “stop, that’s enough” instead of the literal translation of “are you good?”.

    Vandy is not a good team, but they are not cupcake city by any means. The win last night was a hard fought victory and one the kids should be proud of.

    If they can win against Mizzou, win one of two road games and loose to Fla they will be 20 – 10 gong into SEC tourney.
    Two wins in tourney would put them at 22 – 10.
    At 22 – 10 it would be tough for them to be left out of NCAA tourney.

Yes they looked, sounded, and played much better and we’ll take that but as connoisseurs of college basketball, the Kats had better get back at it today b/c what we witnessed was not enough. This team just proved they can be much, much better. And college is when they have to make it happen on a consistent basis. I am completely w/ #9, 10, 14, and 20 and many more I am sure. GOOD GAME!

    140, I saw that too. I thought it was hilarious when the refs reviewed the play and they were just looking at each other like, “what the hell happened”. No foul was called, although IMO should have been a technical on Zeller for faking it.

    Matt, I am sitting with a coworker listening to the show and he said we have a more passionate fan base than UK. He is a LSU fan. Can you speak on the air and clear this up for us?

  244. Zeller = Douche
    11:32 am February 21, 2013 Permalink

    Anyone seen this acting job by Zeller in the MSU game? He actually grabbed Nix’s arm and guided it into his crotch, and then doubled over in fake agony and looked back at the ref for a call. I saw it live and was laughing about it, but the slow mo makes it even more obvious. They reviewed the play, and no foul was called – obviously. #teamdouchebag

    I know a bunch of guys that go to LSU..the Frats and others treat baseball like tailgating…go to the weekend games and drink from sun up to sun down from thur/fri-sunday…they love baseball a lot, but they LOVE drinking. They are crazy for football, the girls know their players like our girls know basketball players, which is amazing to me, our girls don’t know max smith from josh clemons.

    Matt dont forget about all of those fans that dropped their season tickets to football. What about the 10k of fans that stuck it out and watched the football cats finish their season. I agree with you I cant stand the fans that decided not to be KY fans when they are down, especially football.

    What did that guy say about UK’s record and Shows games? UK is 53-18 in games he’s officiated. Lost the last 4, but won the last 11 and 20 of the last 21.

    11:44 am February 21, 2013 Permalink

    From the 1st or 2nd link of that caller’s exact Google search…

    “In fact, in games that Doug Shows has officiated, with John Calipari as coach, Kentucky was 20-1 until the last four games. The Cats have lost all four – at Louisville, Texas A&M at home, at Alabama and at Tennessee. That brings the mark to 20-5.”

    Nice accurate research!

    Shows just sucks, and I don’t think he likes Cal, but I think you guys are reaching for this anti-UK thing. Why 5 pts? Lost of games by 6 pts that we won. Several games we lost by more than 5. Come on guys.

    Caller was right… In games decided by 5 points or less and Doug Shows as referee, UK is 1-10. Incredible.

    One thing that is stupid about referees is that they assign the same guys every year to do the NCAA Tournament. There are plenty of college refs out there who are more capable of calling an unbiased game at the tournament level than any of the refs who have been around forever. I just think big schools like Kentucky deserve some different refs in big, relevant games. The guys in charge of these refs have to know that there is too much personal stuff going on between some of these refs and some coaches.

    That’s not an entirely true statement, Shows worked the Final Four last season and called UK vs. UL game and we all know how that ended up.

    As a high school ref myself, if some of you think some of these refs don’t have anything to do with Kentucky losses then you are being very naive.

    Giants won SB last year, and had a dismal season this yr with average attendance of 80.5K. Steelers having a down yr averaged 61K out of the normal of 63K. And here we are with UK who wins their 1st title in 14 years and we give up on the team bc of down year after going E8, FF, and NC? Shame on us. How can we be so complacent? It’s not like we have set a dynasty in current era?

    #40 hit the nail on the head. The committee has more leeway this year than most. While vandy is undeniably lower-tier, the grit and determination to pull out a W was admirable. Especially in a down year, if they match their intensity level for the remaining schedule, this team can claw it’s way into the big dance. #BBN does not abandon its own

    Ernie could have been talking to either a) a pet, saying, “buddy come on, come in, you comimg, or b) a lady, sayiing come on, come in, you coming?. Either way it was definitely smooth opperator, so no matter what he was doing, hearing that in the background, it is hilarious!
