Rick Majerus’ Saturday Night Notes

College basketball lost one of the good ones today. Following a well-documented struggle with his health, Rick Majerus passed away today at the age of 64. Majerus was one of those rare combinations as a coach: the kind that has a brilliant understanding of the game– labeled by some as a masterful tactician, but also is well-liked across the board by nearly everyone he has come in contact with. Throw in to the mix a sharp sense of humor and ability to even poke fun at himself at times, and you have a man who will be genuinely missed on this earth, especially in college basketball circles. Those who knew him well loved him for his magnetic personality and deep passion for the game of basketball.

Majerus had a few notable coaching stops in his storied career, including Marquette (his alma mater), Ball State, Utah and Saint Louis. Kentucky fans feel a connection to Majerus in large part due to the fact that his Utah team was Kentucky’s opponent in the 1998 national championship game. Beyond that moment in time, Majerus generally spoke highly of Kentucky whenever given the opportunity. A basketball junkie, Majerus appreciated the rich history and tradition wrapped around Kentucky.

Rick Majerus was never one to pass up an opportunity to provide a gem of a quote. Majerus had some of the greatest quotes, many of which have been circulating in remembrance of his life. Below are a few of his best. Rest in peace, Rick Majerus.  Click here to read a whole list of great Majerus quotes. 

“Never marry a beautiful woman. A beautiful woman will leave you. An ugly woman will leave you, too, but so what?”

About his exercise routine…

“I like to bike. I could beat Lance Armstrong, only because he couldn’t pass me if he was behind me.”

On coaching college vs. the NBA…

“I like practice, I love teaching, I love to see a kid get a degree and an education. I enjoy the college campus. I love the theater in our campus. I like the campus life. There’s a travel club on our campus, and I’ll go to those lectures. In an NBA player’s life, how can you make a difference? I mean, you might be able to make a little bit of a difference, but I think I’ve impacted all my players more than any pro coach they’ve ever played for — both from a basketball standpoint, but more importantly, from a lifestyle standpoint. (Keith) Van Horn just asked me to be the godfather for his baby. It was fun to sit through Andre (Miller’s) graduation, to see his mom smile. It was fun to see Hanno (Mottola) come from Europe and realize his dream. It was fun to see Drew Hansen get in Stanford Law School. The other night, one of my players had a really bad family problem and I really did enjoy offering a perspective on it and seeing if I could help him out. A lot of people that are very wealthy throw money at their problems, but it’s fun to help them work through it. I love the fans and the college students. I like the alumni association deal. I like the rah-rah and all that. I like the band rather than that fabricated music. I like the fact that we have students that are cheerleaders that really care, as opposed to a dancing girl team of hired mercenaries.”


And now on to the UK news of the day…

The longest active home winning streak in the country came to a halt this afternoon as John Calipari suffered his first loss in Rupp Arena as the Kentucky basketball coach. Kentucky fell to Baylor 64-55. Winning fifty five straight games without stumbling, with teams that are always stocked with young and inexperienced players, is no small feat and should be commended. Even as much as the Brandon Knight-led 2011 team struggled until the post-season, they were able to keep a perfect bill at home. All streaks must come to an end, but the overall feeling after the game was less about the ending of the streak and more about the direction of this Kentucky basketball team for the remainder of the season. Kentucky is now on a rare 2-game losing streak, sporting a less than attractive 4-3 record. Outside of the Maryland game, Kentucky’s wins have been over schools they have been heavy favorites against. The 3 “tough” games on the schedule so far have all resulted in losses.

— With the 2nd loss in a row to a team currently outside of the Top 25, one question becomes whether or not Kentucky will fall completely from the national rankings/polls. If Kentucky falls into the latter part of the Top 25, or out completely, they will likely have to wait until the Louisville road game on December 29th to really prove themselves on the big stage again.

— Unlike Thursday’s disappointing loss to Notre Dame, in which Kentucky appeared to lack a bit of effort and intensity, the young Wildcats came out with a higher level of intensity to start the game. Also unlike the Notre Dame game, when Kentucky’s offense looked completely inept and stagnant at times– Kentucky was able to create plenty of good scoring opportunities against Baylor this afternoon. Although the offense still struggled at times, especially against Baylor’s zone, the chances around the basket were there for the taking. In a game that featured more missed lay-ups and 2-5 footers than a women’s basketball game (you know it’s true), Kentucky simply left too many easy baskets on the table. Nerlens Noel’s inability to convert on a number of attempts in which he got himself in great position, perhaps stood out the most. Noel finished 3-14 from the field and would probably like some of those misses back.

— Ohh, Archie Goodwin. What to make of Archie Goodwin? Let me start off by saying that at times today I was extremely impressed and pleased with Goodwin’s ability to break down the zone with his dribble AND his willingness to give up the ball on his way to the rim. He still leads the team in “PASSSSS THE BALLLLLL” moments, but he was unselfish on a number of drives that used to almost always end in a “back-to-the-basket-throw-the-ball-in-the-air-as-I-fall-to-the-ground-what-that-wasn’t-a-foul?” The biggest benefactor of his improved decision making on some of those drives was Willie Cauley-Stein. Cauley-Stein got himself in good position for a few alley-oop passes that ended in dunks. Cauley-Stein also had one flush in which he absolutely throttled the rim on a Julius Mays miss. Dun-na-na, Dun-na-na (Sports Center jingle, sort of…)

— Where was Willie’s headband, by the way? I missed it.

— The point guard situation still remains a question mark, as it has all season long. I do think that it was a telling sign that Ryan Harrow was in the game during the final minutes. At some point, is Calipari going to just hand the position to Harrow and say, “whatever we are going to be this year, it’s going to be with you as our PG?” I’m not sure if or when that moment will come, but Harrow had a few nice plays in the second half with the ball in his hands.

— In the end, this Kentucky team still has a huge number of question marks. It’s early though. John Calipari will earn his paycheck this season though. At times once again today, he looked visibly perplexed at some of the things his young team was doing on the court. His team is not (at least yet) excellent on defense, which is rare and has been something all of his 3 Kentucky teams so far could count on and fall back on when other things weren’t clicking. Whenever Kentucky did have success scoring, they weren’t able to sustain a run because they couldn’t put together multiple stops in a row on the defensive end. With slower guys like Kyle Wiltjer and Julius Mays, as well as a seemingly still lost Ryan Harrow on defense– it’s a legitimate concern about just how high the ceiling is for the potential defensively of this team.

— Again, John Calipari will face his toughest challenge yet as a coach with this puzzle of a Kentucky team. Maybe it’s a sign that this team just has a distinctly different make up, or maybe it’s a testament to how well his other teams have been able to gel so quickly in similar circumstances. Just because at times he has made it look easy, doesn’t mean it hasn’t been a tremendous coaching job.

— Willie Cauley-Stein had a few interesting tidbits following the game in talking about comparing this year’s team to last year’s team: “We came in thinking we were that team. And we’re not that team. We have a long way to go to establish our identity.”

— Baylor freshmen Isaiah Austin enjoyed the environment and the opportunity to play in Rupp Arena. “This is the most exciting game I’ve ever played in.”

— Kentucky will look to bounce back (How many of you have that on your living room table? How many of you have actually read it cover to cover? 2 points for each “yes” answer) with a 4-game home stand before their biggest challenge of the season on the road against Louisville. 

— On the football side of things, tomorrow marks another huge day in the young Mark Stoops era. Kentucky fans will have the chance to welcome the new coach to the Bluegrass tomorrow afternoon. Andrew Cassady outlined the Big Blue Nation’s options earlier:

Choice A- 12:45 p.m RJ Corman Airplane Hanger, Nicholasville

Go see Coach as he lands in Lexington for the first time at the RJ Corman Airplane hanger in Nicholasville.  Go here and you can say you were there when it all began and the Mark Stoops era in Lexington really began.

Choice B- 2:45 p.m Nutter Field House

The second chance to see the new coach will be just before the 3 o’ clock press conference outside of the Nutter field house now displaying the Coach’s face. From there you can wander over to Commonwealth where they will be playing the conference on the video boards.

— Stoops will be arriving fresh off of the ACC conference championship with his former employer, Florida State. Florida State was impressive on the defensive end in the win, coming up with a huge interception in the final minutes to secure the win. I actually had the Florida State game on tonight just to catch a glimpse of Stoops in action. In a cool moment, once again showcasing just how beloved Stoops was to the Florida State players/program, Stoops was doused with Gatorade at the conclusion of the game. 

— Kentucky football has already enjoyed a recent buzz around the program for the first time in years. During the coaching search many people talked about the necessity for the  new coach to “win the press conference.” At the time, considering some of the less exciting names floating around, the press conference would have been a way to “convince” the Big Blue Nation to get excited about the hire and the state of the football program in general. The Stoops hire has already generated excitement and I believe the first 24 hours after his hire and every piece of news that filtered out during the time period, has already won over the masses. I suspect the press conference tomorrow will only deepen the excitement and positive vibe already surrounding the hire. 

— In really the only “new news” of the day for UK football, we found out that Mark Stoops will not be coaching Florida State in their bowl game (likely against Louisville, unless something changes in the next 2 minutes). The news is exciting because it signals Stoops’ 100% commitment in moving forward in Lexington with Kentucky. His focus and tireless work ethic will be squarely on Kentucky and securing a bright future with the 2013 recruiting class.

— A quick change of pace, for those interested in our rival’s woes. The rumor mill is starting to really heat up with Charlie Strong and his potential move to the SEC next season. Tennessee has apparently already interviewed Strong, and Auburn has shown strong interest as well. Tennessee fans will likely all still tell you that Jon Gruden is a done deal, and Jesus himself will be his defensive coordinator, with Peyton Manning coordinating the offense…but don’t be surprised if you start to hear Strong’s name coming up with more sincerity when it comes to the Vols’ job opening.

— Congratulations to the UK volleyball team for a big win over Ohio State tonight in Memorial Coliseum. The victorious Wildcats will now move on to the Sweet 16, where #1 ranked Penn State will be waiting. 

— I’ll leave you with a famous Rick Majerus moment that has been re-circulating throughout social media following today’s news.

    My favorite Rick Majerus moment was his comment about UC’s Jihad Mohammed during one of the game commentaries he participated in: “He wouldn’t want to get stuck behind me at a buffet, and I wouldn’t want to be behind him at the airport.”

    RIP Rick, you will be missed.

    #3 – I think you are saying this with tongue-in-cheek but as this is the internet, its rather hard to tell. With such good freshman success before this, it was obvious they BOUGHT IN to what Cal was saying and listened to him. Success obviously followed. Heck the team with Brandon Knight, Lamb, Jones, etc. struggled early but they eventually bought in and we were rocking on all levels the last part of the year. I was at the game and it was so obvious that Cal was so frustrated because they weren’t doing what they were taught and instructed to do.

    Since you brought this up, what would you have done differently than Cal to address our current problems? At this point, if you could actually answer that I’m sure you’d be at a high D1 program getting paid millions like Cal. But instead, you are here with us as one of the observers.

    #3: Rotten coaching??? Ohhhh geeze, how ridiculous!!!

    Lets try: Goodwin loves to “be the man” more than he loves to be a part of great team right now. Noel needs to become more aggressive. Poythress needs to tap into his “inner Charles Barkley” and whoop tail! Wiltjer needs to move better without the ball and learn to play better defense. Harrow needs to step up quickly or he’s riding the bench for the rest of the season. (But at least he got his own hairdo back!) I wonder if Grandpa Mays could run point for good because the kiddos sure could use his leadership and maturity there. Willie gets better every outing and when his confidence catches up with his abilities, watch out! All this been said… I would rather play our boys now than in our men in March. GO BIG BLUE!

    Certainly hated to hear about coach Majerus.

    Well…long day and rest of the weekend many of us face with a home loss that we just ain’t used to having. Especially under the circumstances of our team not finding themselves and Cal prolly pulling his hair out.

    But gang…this is the time for true fans to stand behind our team. Constructive criticism is understood ala Cawood Ledford for those that remember. But, to jump ship, call names, stupid insults, make people look stupid and definately not a true fan.

    We got know Majerus goog in the 90’s because it seemed like Utah, Wakeforest, and UK where always in the same bracket. Majerus always gave us fits with big slow white boys who had funny names and could shoot.
    #3 Your a moron. This is what happens with the one and done recruiting. This year we are struggling a little. Big deal we are young and Cals teams always get better over the Christmas break when they have more time to concentrate on basketball only. Last years team had the it factor everybody talks about, this team doesn’t. Still I will take the last 3 years and a down year compaired to what everyone else has been doing. I know you are a Tard or Hoosier so you better get your jollies in now because this team WILL be good bt March. Next years team will dominate. I like where Cal has this program. IU will have a step fall off next year and UL really hasn’t done a thing yet.

    After Kentucky defeated Utah for the national title in 1998, Ashley Judd gave Utes coach Rick Majerus a hug, something he will never forget…
    “She hugged me as a consolation because we lost,” he said the other day. “I went to bed for two years with that as my sex life.”

    During the last minute of a 20-point blowout of Tennessee by Kentucky…
    “Well, there’s not much to look forward to from here on out, so I’m trying to find Ashley Judd in the crowd. It beats the adult videos at the hotel.”

I, along with many others, often transition from the top of the post to the UK-related news with the “and now to the news of the day…” Perhaps I will add a “UK” to it.

    Like how he lived in a hotel instead of buying a house. I wonder if he did that the rest of his life or if he got a house after his Utah days where over? Don’t let his one liners fool anybody. He was one hell of a coach. He took teams that had no business on the court with UK and gave Tubby and Pitino hell. He had Van Horn and Doleac and a bunch of missionary’s and competed with some of the better teams UK has ever had.

    I think the reason you cite for why KSR “lags” behind in news regarding this basketball team is essentially why this cite is so popular. The people who write for it and run the show are fans and cater to fans. Being hopeful when there is plenty to be hopeful about is what fans do. Just go away.

John crigler was a player who started for the 1958 national champions under coach Rupp. Was a TRUE cats fan and loved everyone but I haven’t seen anything about his passing besides coach cal saying how sorry he was that he passed.

    #6 is close to right. After watching the game and watching the last few minutes with Harrow doing the right thing, think we are headed in the right direction. Actually could care less but hope we fall completely out of the top 25. Be nice to put the bulls eye on our back on someone else for a change. CATS need to get fired up over something and this may work.. We still love this team and the huge up side. Something ND, Baylor or Duke does not have. Look forward to playing any of them in March–send them home time!!

    #36 – I agree with you about Harrow. he did three things on the offensive side that bodes well for the future. 1) He pushed the ball up-court very quickly. This will force the rest of the players to pick-up their pace and lets UK operate on the offensive end without the other team setting-up in their half-court defense. 2) He was actually giving directions to the rest of the team on where to go in their offensive set. his could be called leadership. 3) He penetrated off the dribble against team with two pretty good guards. All in all, I see a lot of potential from Harrow.

    #51&52, IF you are going to criticize, try using the spell check and proofing your post BEFORE you post…Invest in an MS product like “Word” or “Outlook” that will point out potential misspellings and grammatical errors.

    That way when you complain about poor writing and editing you won’t look bad.

    OR, just let the spelling and grammar errors slide, it being a free site and focus on the ideas, opinions and facts provided.

    I would like to say as a reader of the site everyday and a loyal UK fan, I use those words very lighty right now with what I read on your site and the comments. A lot of the public perception of UK fans is we are spoliled and if things dont go our way we just throw in the towel, want a new coach, or just say well at least there is next year. Well after reading the site after the last 2 lossses yourr writers and our fans are at it again but this time everyone seems to thing that football jesus is flying into lesxington today. I am embarassed and ashmed that i read this website like I do and since we lost yesterday pretty much every entry has something to do with Stoops. HELLO UK FOOTBALL ISNT GOING TO WIN NEXT YEAR!!!!!!!!! He needs time and are we going to give it to him? No. Your writers will be putting up entries on the basketball team after UK Football loses its first conference game. Its pathetic. This basketball team is so talented but as talented they are they are that inexperienced. Im sick of reading you guys talk about this season being over lets get ready for football and next year in basketball. HOW BOUT SOME LOYALTY?!?!? This team isnt last year and wasnt going to be last year. This team ddnt return 3 STARTERS!!!!! Give these guys a chance and for christ sake give Harrow a chance none of us know what it raelly feels like to be PG at UK for Calipari following Wall, Knight, Teague and a National Championship. I have faith in this team and will watch every game looking for improvement who cares if we lose 10 games, last time i checked Knights team lost every road game they played and went to final 4. This team is built for March not Nov, Dec or Jan and can we please remember this is a BASKETBALL SCHOOL always will be, glad we got Stoops coming to town but not only is this a basketball school ITS BASKETBALL SEASON!!!!! Enough Stoops entires until he starts signing recruiting until then we should be talking UK Basketball and thats it. In closing im extremely disappointed in this site and am actually leaning towards reading Tipton, as I did yesterday because he actually talks BBall right now.

    #54 IMHO I dont see it that way. We are early in the Basketball season. Yes I am upset that they lost but they will come around. Today is a new era in UK Football. Stoops flies in for his initial press conference. That is news, whether football is in season or not. That is news whether the basketball lost or not.

    Why can’t we multitask and support both teams at the same time?

    Do we need to turn off our football radar after game 12?

    I think not. I follow both and pride myself on that. In season or not…..
