Road Deja Vu for the Cats as they fall to Vandy, 81-77

m39d46aa810b95e39b3ba0d43bd8fa264

It was the same old song and dance for the Cats as they held a lead on the road with under four minutes left in the game only to see it disappear down the stretch through a combination of stupid turnovers and missed shots. The story of the night for Vanderbilt was the play of John Jenkins, who had a career high 32 points on 6-10 shooting from beyond the three point line. His play combined with Vandy’s ridiculous 11-20 shooting from beyond the arc as a team and numerous second chance opportunities from offensive rebounds dropped the Cats to 5-5 in SEC play. We struggled with foul trouble on both Liggins and Jorts as well as a Darius Miller leg injury, but the inability to contain Vanderbilt defensively prevented UK from taking a first half lead and making up the difference in the second. I don’t know if Vanderbilt considered this game their Super Bowl but we played a pretty good game on the road, they just played better.

More in just a few…

    First of all, the tech on Liggins wash complete horse #$%%. Secondly, we can’t handle pressure worth a damn. Vandy hit sick threes the whole game. We played very well until the last five minutes of the game. No way this is a final four team.

    Same old sam old. When you need a basket, tie game, or in final minutes, get the ball to Jones or Liggins, don’t for heaven sake get Knight or Lamb a shot, you might win the game. Keep doing the same thing you keep getting the same results.

    The reason why Cats can’t win is youth and inexperience. Until we get rid of Calipari, we’re going to be plagued by one-and-doners who only use our program to further themselves. We need Jeff Shepards and Anthony Epps kids. Who care about KENTUCKY.

    Fire Calipari!

    It’s awful hard to win with 6 players on the whole team. We were screwed from the get go when the NCAA took Kanter away. The worst thing is that Pitino pulled a season out of his ass at UL and they will be bragging like the won the title for the rest of the year.

    The past few road losses have made this loss bearable I guess. I am not in panic road what-so-ever. This team is learning how to handle late game situations – Something last years team never had to worry about – which will ultimately help them in the Tourney. Add to the mix that we look extremely well playing at home and no real road games in the Tourney I still think this team makes it as far as last years.

    Down the stretch, this team allows the game to be completely dictated by the opponents. I hate to blame Cal, because I usually expect the players to win the games, not the coaches. However, I’m beginning to worry that without overwhelming talent, he’s going to come up short more often than not. Thankfully, next year we should have a huge talent advantage over nearly everyone, plus a little more depth and experience. This team, meanwhile, is going to kill me, so I may not live to see Gilchrist and crew.

    I’m admittedly worried about this team’s prospects, but Ghost of Rupp is an idiot. The only possible one and done on this team is Jones, and I doubt he goes (maybe I’m delusional there; it is a weak draft). Last year was a fluke in terms of deflections. More often than not, Cal’s teams will be excellent. This year’s is an odd exception. If you want Cal gone, you’re certifiably insane. He’s not perfect, but he’s pretty damn good.

    48…I don’t see anger addressed at the kids. Cal isn’t getting it done in developing his players and I keep hearing about the dribble drive, yet I am not seeing it. I see no effort to get the ball into the post and I see Terrence Jones being used to set screens on the perimeter which takes him away from the basket. I question all of that given our record. I am a fan and love the way Cal has elevated the program and its importance in the state but I am questioning his X’s and O’s given losses to Ole Miss and Alabama and the same style of play being repeated today against Vandy. I think he needs to make some type of change and he gets paid a lot more than me but what he has been doing is showing no signs that it is working.

You are an idiot. Everyone on here screaming about the way he recruits are fools, recruit the best, thats what you do. Anybody watching that game saw the so-called one and dones carrying UK. When Liggins tried to force that dumb pass with a few minutes left and us down by 2, that was the end for us. Be for real BBN, I still love this team, we only have 3 legit starters and they are freshman. When will you guys realize that, you expect us to have a record like Kansas or Ohio State, but we dont have those players. Support the F****** team and its coach or get off the site!!

    SUCK IT UP PEOPLE! Do we not remember saying many months ago that we didn’t expect this team to be as successful as last years? Sure, I hate that we’re losing, but we’re losing these games as a team: each player has had their issues, and Cal hasn’t made 100% perfect decisions. But they lost as a team and will rebound as a team. We may not be final four material, but how many people really thought that we were, especially after the Kanter decison? And even if one-and-dones are not the best way to go, how many on this year’s team are REALLY a one-and-done? Watching them right now, I can see one or maybe 2 if they get their butts in gear. Stop blaming and start supporting- they need us more than ever in order to turn things around. GO BIG BLUE!

No one is more upset about about this loss than me, but it’s another close road loss against a quality opponent! Get over it! It’s called basketball and losses will happen!

I agree there’s things that need to be fixed and I also agree that caliparis seems to turn a blid eye to some obvious problems but we don’t turn on our selfs so quickly that it makes us look completely unrational.

    @ El Cormanyo:

    When Calimari’s recruiting antics place us under probation, I’ll come looking for you. My wisdom and experience has brought clarity. You were too young to remember the Eddie Sutton years. No smooth talking coach is worth a scandal.

    Even if these kids stick around, that will mean DISASTER for next year. You think the next recruiting class wants to ride the pine? Get real. That’s a prescription for team turmoil.

    I truly hope that all of these ignorant posts calling out Cal and the players are from idiot card fans who don’t have a clue about basketball. If not, then I am really disappointed that a portion of a fanbase who are very knowledgeable when it comes to basketball would say such ridiculous things.

    We played a good game. Jenkins just caught fire, it happens. We played good defense on him for the most part, he was just feeling it. There is a reason he is the leading scorer in the SEC. We obviously had trouble with the zone in the last 4mins, but you can’t blame this one on Cal. He ran a zone offense, we just couldn’t hit the shots. They are undefeated at home this yr for a reason. Vandy always plays tough at home. It sucks to lose, but some of you guys are truly pitiful. Suck it up and quit your whining and moaning. It’s not Cal’s or even the guys fault. Vandy played great, we played good and came up a bit short.

    Oh and for the UL fans who actually think they will do something in the tourney this year, get real. The big east is overrated and, like last year, we will all find that out again come tourney time. We already wiped your asses on the chicken coop floor this year. You have nothing to brag about.

    I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, EVERYONE needs to come back next year. Jones isn’t ready, neither is Knight nor Lamb. But they’ll all leave and Kentucky will finish 500 in conference next year. Cal needs to do what Coach K does and beg these kids to stay for 3 or 4 years. (Guarantee Irving will be at Duke after Gilchrist leaves UK).

    The idea that UK will only get one and done players is stupid! Last year’s team was an anomoly. Sometimes it takes a bit of time for a new coach and a new system to really set in. We just so happened to have immediate success with last year’s team, but do you really think we will lose five players to the draft again? I think not. All will be well, and I bet we only lose one freshman to the draft…next year we will have a great mixture. Go BIG BLUE – oh, and get real Ghost of Rupp.

    Are you insane? Real UK fans don’t “vent” by attacking their own on FB. As much as I hate to admit it, no Duke fan has EVER pulled a PP on their own.

    We are no better than UNC loonies who rant and rave on Roy’s call in shows after a loss.

    Some of the fans are rediculous. You didn’t want Tubby because he couldn’t recruit top players. Now you want to get rid of Cal because he recruits the best of the best that leave after one year. You can’t have it both ways. And I will tell you this. UK is not Duke and will not get 5 stars staying 4 years. Live with it. Actually Cal has done a great job. He has some left over Gillisspie players and 3 Freshman that are carrying this team probably to a 21 or 22 win season. This team could make a run in the tourney but who knows. At least those games will be on a nuetral court. Next year this team will be good.

    We have the Big 3 in the East one more time around to close the season…need 3-0 really in those games…

    As for L’ville…Give me a break – we shellacked you in your gym. Don’t give me that s(*t about Buckles either – you had your team out there. you got worked.

    So what changed Lee Todd’s mind on allowing Calapari to be hired after vetoing the decision when Tubby left?

    The fact that they couldn’t do any worse than Gillispie?

    If that’s the case, he’s admitting he AND his AD directly/indirectly drove the program into the ground. Then abandoned his principals in order to what? Save his job???

    Honorable men accept responsibility for the damage done by their actions. They also don’t reward people for forcing them into abandoning their principles because the current surface appears is favorable. Lee Todd is sliding down the slippery slope and ensuring the University is stuck with this legacy of erroding values long after he is gone.

I agree he is not an elite X’s and 0’s guy, but neither is Self or Williams. Being an elite recruiter is alot more important. You get the talent, you will win. His in game coaching is not a detriment. His preparation seems fine. Not having Kanter has been the difference this year. If anyone thought we were gonna win it all this year without Kanter, you are delusional. Blaming this game on Cal shows you have no basketball knowledge at all.

    but the reason why people hate us is not just because we win it is because we have fans that bitch, bitch and bitch..most teams would love to have our team this year and we are short players…just like in football, you bitch about everything…sometimes we do not deserve a great basketball coach…
    be grateful

    You know that was a great basketball game. I didn’t like the final score but that was a great game. Jorts and Liggins played with a lot of passion and kept us in it. I see progress even if it comes with another conference loss. Love the way Knight plays the game and Jones had another solid game. We will fine.

    I’m not sure if any of you all have noticed but the guy named “Old School” and “Bluemist” and “Ghost of Rupp” is just a little troll that comes on here every day and writes the same thing on every post. He talks to himself and makes it looks like others are agreeing with him. He probably made about 90 of the 180 comments on this blog post. He’s an idiot and his crap is getting old. If you read this site every day, I am sure you have already noticed his idiotic comments. Ignore the ftard.

    Jones does some of the dumbest shit. Saving a Vandy airball cost a basket and foul. fouling a three point shooter. turn over with the game on the line. Jones is NOT a ball handler.

    Ok, I’ll be upfront here – I’m a Tennessee alum and the son/grandson of Vandy grads(guess the brains didn’t make it down to me)so I am definitely not unbiased. I also realize the typical message board poster is not indicative of the overall fan base but let’s be serious. I’ve seen a number of comments pertaining to the level of class exhibited by Vandy fans. This seems to be a typical theme every time the ‘Cats get beaten. But are we serious here? Ask any opposing SEC fan – when the Big Blue mist unleashes its minions on away gymnasiums throughout the SEC, local communities are left wondering what the hell just happened. What is that stench of halitosis and tooth decay? Is there a meth-lab convention in town? Who is that red-faced fifty year old man in blue spitting all over himself about a bad call with an anger more suited for someone who had just had a family member murdered. What’s with the 70 year olds in blue track suits? Every fan base has its rotten apples and weirdos. Trust me, I know. I went to Tennessee. But a Kentucky fan pulling the class card on an opposing fan base is comedy gold – you’ll see more restraint at an anti-Mubarak rally in Egypt than you’ll find at Rupp after a perfectly fair call against the Big Blue. Meltdown if you will, but don’t throw stones if you live in a glass house.

    Same song, what verse is it now? Fifth, Sixth??? Who knows. Same garbage. One definition of insanity of doing the same thing over and over and expecting things to turn out differently.

    These players don’t have “it.” Whatever “it” is…guts, basketball-smarts, whatever you want to call it. When it’s crunch time they fold up like a cheap suit.

    That’s the way it is.

    Now they have to try to win four games in four days with no bench to grab a high seed for the NCAA tournament, when the SEC tournament comes around…not going to happen.

    Not going to happen…let’s hope for a lockout so these kids have to stick around whether they like it or not.

    Despite a loss to Dores I thought Kentucky put up a good fight in Memorial Gym. It is not an easy place to play and lately Vandy has Kentucky’s numbers. At this point I do not care if we are in the SEC race with Bama’s only 2 loss in the conference play and not much competition in the WEST division they are in great shape to win the conference. I would have liked for Cats to finish in top 2 to get a bye in the first round of SEC tourney. We just need to keep in mind this team has a great potential. I still think we will be find during the post season play, we are 3-1 in the neutral site game. Good news is we play 4 out of 5 at home and tournament games are played on neutral site.

    Ghost is nothing more than a filthy Tardinal faux Cat fan. No one should pay any more attention to him than to old school the old fool.

    JP is right. I recognize the guy who has no life trolling. Same old shat from that looser.

    But Old School, man you disappoint. Are you lonely at all? I get that some don’t like Cal but to just go on and on with the same whining, well it’s just sad, like you don’t have any friends to talk too sad.

    Anyway, Very frustrating to loose again. But I think this may be a good thing for Cal. I thought last year gave him the wrong impression of the SEC. It’s not Conference USA anymore for him. In the long run we will be better from this season. Cal will be better too. It’s a reality check.

    I will say it again, give Cal a chance to build HIS team. His version of UK. If he can’t get it done after 5 or 6 years then we need to start to worry. But the real UK fans that bitch and whine, not the trolls, but our UK fans that cry about this and that….they are making it suck to coach and play for UK. We need to support our team.

    Who cares if we can’t get past the elite 8. We will still have the #1 ranked recruting class each year. That’s what really matters, right? Maybe we should just start hanging banners in Rupp for that. The 1,2 and 4 spots will be open each year for a new one and done mcdonalds all American freshman to step in.

    I agree with 210. Also…ghost of rupp is the biggest dumbass in the history of sports fans. If u are for real than please leave and follow another team and stop making the real fans look bad. You are why everyone hates us. If u are a Louisville troll, than just die. Either way this team and fan base is better off without you and those like you.
