Ryan Harrow: “It’s my fault. I apologize.”

photo

There are few things more depressing than the losing team’s locker room after the game. Tonight was no exception. Ryan Harrow was visibly emotional while speaking to reporters about Kentucky’s loss to Vanderbilt. After a 2-15 shooting night riddled with poor decisions, Harrow accepted the blame: “It’s my fault. I apologize. If we don’t make the tournament, I have to take responsibility.”

Harrow then broke down into tears and put a towel over his head for privacy.

Willie Cauley-Stein said that Ryan’s been dealing with that pressure all season: “Ryan has a lot of weight on his shoulders. For one, he’s playing point guard at the University of Kentucky. That in itself is big. Any mistake you make, you’re hounded for it, any shot you don’t take you’re hounded for it. Any miss…you know. It starts adding up pound by pound.

Tonight it was just too much.

    Poor kid. He’s in way over his head here and that’s not his fault.

    Does he really care? Matt said he wasn’t coming back next year anyway.

    I’m sure Harrow is a good kid. He just doesn’t have the moxy to play here. The pressure is more than he can handle. You’ve got to have thick skin to play here. I’ve heard Cal say several times that this place isn’t for everyone. I think Harrow is a prime example of a kid with a lot of talent but very poor toughness. Maybe he will do well in a back up role next season.

    Let me begin by saying that I’m very glad that I have a wife, kids and a very beautiful and full life to come home to tonight after this national embarrassment at the hands of a 15-16 Vanderbilt team. All the jokes made at the expense of Kevin Stallings will be on us tonight in one of the most miserable performances in the history of UK basketball. Actually it is quite difficult to think of a more insipid performance in our history. So, now it comes time to write the epitaph on this excruciatingly painful and uninspiring season. What to say? NIT bid? Please, no, decline it so that this team can be no more and so that Cal can go to Gethsemani and take a week or two to meditate and reflect upon how the all-access circus mentality has destroyed our ability to build a fundamentally sound, hungry and determined basketball team less than one-year after we dominated the sport….how the “players first I’d never want to offend an aspiring 5-star basketball recruit” has decimated a coaches ability to mold “ballers” into real basketball players and men who have balls and know what it takes to win….and what an honor and privilege it is to wear the blue and white….etc.etc.etc…I sincerely hope that this is the last basketball game we’ll ever see this group play…not because I hate these kids or want to see them fail…but because they’re not ready for this stage, they never were ready for it, and the circus into which they we’re thrown never gave them a chance….it is time to scrap that script, close out this year, and begin again next year with the business-THE SOLE BUSINESS-of learning how to become a team and win basketball games.

    Hate to see a kid feeling like that. Have to agree with #1 – he’s in over his head. Playing point at KY is not for everyone. I just don’t think he’s ever felt comfortable in the role. It will be interesting to see if he stays.

    12. He didn’t have BCG’s guys in Memphis, and they had tournament success. This is just a terrible mix. You don’t have to be 22 to be tough. Harrow is older than Goodwin, and Archie, for all his dumb moves at times, has given effort. MKG had heart. This is just a case of guys basking in the glory of Cal’s previous teams.

    I’m the first to say that guard play is hurting the team.. But you gotta show some compassion for this kid. You can tell anybody its hard to play here, but nothing compares to actually having to play and having the glaring eyes of some of th BBN on your every move. DVR, rewind, play it again. Then they ridicule this guy on the internet for the whole world to see.. knowing they can’t hit a layup on a nerf goal. Ryan, keep your head up but you already know this isn’t the place for you. You were made out to be a great guard all last year without anyone ever seeing you play. Hard to live up to some peoples expectations….

    1. Calipari had to know Harrow was soft during his transfer year practices.
    2. Why didn’t he recruit another PG? I assume there weren’t any available.
    3. How could Calipari not see the potential issues of Goodwin and Poythress while recruiting them?
    4. Was this year’s offense most beneficial to the players like years past?

    That being said, bring on next year.

    12. MKG was the primary one who led the team last year (ie. The Breakfast Club). Harrow was not the first choice for pg this year….Teague was. Harrow is not tough enough physically or mentally to handle the job….and at Kentucky, the game starts with the point guard. Lose Nerlens, and the team folded like a Big Lots lawn chair.

    I just want this season to end personally. We will be dominate next year…..the Harrison twins are stone cold killers with cods made of cast iron. Get ready for some epic blowouts!

    I think we’re all struggling with the fact that it’s hard to separate Harrow the PG from Harrow the PERSON, but the distinction needs to be made. Sure, his play is lacking, but can any of us say that we were the best at what we did when we were 18-20 yrs old? (Don’t answer that). He’s a good kid that has God-only-knows-what pressure on him and just doesn’t have what it takes to carry the burden. I wish him well, he’s tried his best I’m sure but just isn’t “UK basketball” good.

    It’s not all his fault, our whole team didn’t play with heart or the will to win. 1 bad loss wouldn’t keep us out of the tournament, but the several we’ve had most likely will. Maybe we’ll get good news on the 20th? Anything exciting leading to the tournament that we won’t be playing in.

    I feel bad for the kid, I really do. He has some tough decisions to make. Maybe he is just not cut out to lead a program of the magnitude of UK (like Saul Smith). There were certain coaches who couldn’t carry the load, and they were grown men, not kids like Ryan. Perhaps he will use it as fuel and come back stronger, but he will have some tough competition next year. Maybe he is better off at a lower profile program.

    That being said, this is not ALL on him. There is plenty of blame to go around, extending all the way to the coaching staff. Wiltjer has disappointed over the past 5 or so games, and Alex didn’t show up either.

    And lastly, we as UK fans need to learn to lose with grace and humility. We have to gove Vandy their props – they outplayed us, outhustled us, and were absolutely unconscious with their shooting. Sometimes that is hard to beat. That being said, I hope we absolutely destroy them next year.

    I sure hope that most of these negative posts are truly fans of other schools trolling and enjoying themselves. Coach has done well every year but this one and it’s just an unfortunate mix of youth and personalities. Julius tried to provide so e leadership but he is just not tale Ted like Darius to back up his exhortations with on field performance. As has been pointed out, these are young kids. Sometimes being under enormous stress can mask how much effort they are putting in. And mental stress can drain physical performance. I can’t imagine any athlete at this level not having pride and wanting to succeed and pleas fans. But sometimes, all that shows externally masks inward feelings.

    I can’t see any need to criticize Cal after the wonderful years he has had so far. I can’t fathom why supposedly grown en would be so stupidly harsh on you g kids who chose to come to UK. Fans – get some perspective five. Trolls – go away. This is temporary…

I’ll give Vandy props for playing hard but that is still a team we should have beat. Surely they knew going into the game they needed this win. The team that showed up tonight doesn’t deserve a bid. Give it to a mid major team that will be glad for the opportunity given.

    At what point are you no longer a “kid”? He transferred after a year at NC State and sat out a year so he is at least 21. He’s old enough to vote, fight and die for his country, and buy booze. He’s been playing college ball for 3 years, you have to grow up and quit being a “kid” at some point. That part of this country’s problem these days. 25 year olds are still “kids” living at home with their Mommy.

    It is not Harrow’s fault. Whoever recruited him 2 years to go has to take the majority of the blame. The ret of the blame has to go to the guy in charge of developing Harrow for 2 years. Cal should fire those guys. The only thing that Cal can be blamed for is not benching players when he should have.

    Ryan is out of position. PG in this offense in this place has a lot to do with mentality. If he can accept his role and work hard this summer to improve, I hope he stays and gives us some quality depth. Poythress is where I truly question the effort. So many people would give everything in this world to have his body, skill set, and his Kentucky uniform to play in, and yet he rarely shows up. He’s my disappointment this year more than anything.

    The common thread on all of Cal’s best teams over the year has been consistently great point guard play (Evans, Rose, Wall, and Knight). Teague was good enough given the supporting cast of Davis and MKG. But Ryan Harrow is a couple of notches below Teague and without Noel…well, what did we all really think was going to be the ultimate outcome? The key question for next year is whether or not WCS returns.

    This season’s fate was sealed almost a year ago when Shabazz decided to go to UCLA rather than Kentucky.

    Yes, it’s been a tough year to watch, but you all realize the way you shread these players on the internet for the world to see doesn’t do anything to help the team and only hurts the possible near future of the program. If you don’t think possible future recruits don’t visit this site occasionally, then you are sadly mistaken. If Wiggins or Randle stumble across this comment section to see the lack of fan support, then I wouldn’t blame them for going elsewhere. Talk all of the crap you want in your own living room to your friends, but don’t vent for all of the world to see on the internet and reinforce exactly what #83 is saying. Good grief.

    You can’t even tell someone not to come because you know you would come here too given the opportunity. What would he have done at NC State? Nothing, coming hear may not look so good now but it was still a great decision by him.

    93. There will be no such negative fan support next year because the band wagoners have been flushed. Also we will be a lock for a 1 seed so that factors in too.

    #92-been saying that since first game of year. Cal thought he had Shabazz in the bag, threw his whole year off, but still should have made adjustments.

    A “point guard” who took 29% (15/52) of the shots?

    I accept your apology, Ryan, but you shouldn’t have to apologize. This was a team loss, Head coach included! Layups and 3 pointers? No mid-range jumpers? Why did Cal go back to man to man when the zone was working so well? No, Ryan hasn’t been the best PG we’ve had in his first year of actually playing here and perhaps we’ve yet to see him at his best. But to think that we as fans of a collegiate team have the right to vilify a person who traveled from another state to play here simply because he had a bad game is going too far and simply pathetic behavior. That’s someone’s kid.

    We’ve had 3 great seasons, a national championship and a winning season this year that was sub-par by our standards. What in the hell does everyone expect? And these are kids for God’s sake. Grow up! People!

    Ryan! Come back next year. You’ll have more time to develop and be part of a deep team with a lot of weapons. Turn a negative into a positive. GO CATS!!!

    The point in which I was done with Harrow was the beginning of the season when he was off several weeks with an “illness” then later “family problems”. Cal even said that pulling that stunt negated his ability to be a leader. I feel like Cal, with no depth, had no choice but to start him after that but that incident ruined any team chemistry they would ever have. While this team is fighting in practice, against Maryland, against Duke he is at home crying about how hard it is.

    #97, the only truth I see is that you’re an a$$hole! I’m not even sure if you’re an actual UK fan. Other prospects read these posts, moron. If I were a player yours is one opinion I wouldn’t give a sh!t about.

    101, I respect that opinion and would have to agree somewhat that unfortunately it probably was a big part of this team not coming together. But if that were the case the responsibility still falls on the head coach to police such destructive behavior and quarantine those types of players from the rest of the team. Not start them at PG. Because if you do who’s to blame for the outcome?

    That’s why I don’t blame Ryan. He’s just a kid. He will hopefully grow stronger from this entire experience. That’s what we want for these players, isn’t it? That they grow and become better?

    I’d like to see us just move in a positive direction and squash all of the blame game stuff. It’s toward our detriment as a program. GO CATS!!!

    Y’all are dumb Ryan harrow is a junior and was a star at nc state you have to be outta your mind to say he is a kid and needs development !!! It just shows he can’t play at. The level uk is point blank period! He knows how to play my god he is a junior and getting out played by freshman if he hasn’t developed by know then he just is retarded

    Brett, what are you talking about? Harrow wasn’t a star at NC State. He was a baby then too. He wrote letters to the NC State fans about some of their criticism and his stats didn’t suggest ‘star.’

    Man I hate Vandy! they beat our team last year!(who were #8) Hate them much! As for crushing our players this year, understandable but some of you folks are just ridiculous! This team…is not awesome but you would think the friggin wheels have flown of the bus looking at some of these post! Losing Noel certainly didn’t help, but the pieces were not in place this year….we’ll be fine, it’s been really disappointing but calm the hell down!

    I feel for the kid. The pressure of playing point guard for John Calipari at Kentucky is to much for him. I like the kid, but it may be best for him to transfer again. I can’t believe we might end up in the NIT. Oh well. GO BIG BLUE!!!

    NO it’s not your fault alone Harrow. That’s why teams have a coach to sub in other guys when you’re not playing well. Polson should have played way more minutes and so should have Wiltjer. Never mind the effectiveness of the zone then him calling it off only to fall far behind again because of it.

    Sure, Harrow went 2-15, but other than possibly WCS, name one other player who played better. At least he did take it to the rack. Too much standing around, and these players just don’t seem to have high basketball IQ’s. I personally think we’re seeing the type coach Cal is when given mediocre talent. It might be okay if it were just the offense, but the defense is equally bad. I have never seen a team lose their man on on ball screens as much as this team. I’m afraid that if Cal doesn’t get the number one recruiting class every year, this is what we may have to become accustomed to. Think maybe some of what others have said about Cal’s coaching ability may have been proven right this year. You simply don’t regress this late in the season. This team is way worse than it was the first game of the year. My eyes are hurting, I’m putting my blue glasses back on.

    This team doesnt deserve to be in the ncaa tournament. Those blaming Cal are wrong. At some point the players have to step it up and they havent responded all year. These players are weak in every way. Harrow should have just stayed home when he left earlier in the season. Its apparent that he isnt strong enough mentally to play at this level. For those bashing the fans, we have been there all year with this team and this is how they play? They have played like crap all year long. They deserve what they are getting.

    Ryan will be in a perfect situation next year coming off the bench backing up the Harrison twins. He will be the best backup point in the nation. We will be glad we have him. Less pressure on him.$

    This was was NOT Harrow’s fault. Not by a long shot. If anything, it looked like him and WCS were the only two players who wanted to win last night. The others just laid egss.

    Cal’ s bad for signing the player. This is big time college hoops. Far too many apologizes from Harrow this season. The answer: Harrison twin. If Harrow wants to see the court next season -transfer!!!!
