    Vitale’s most impassioned plea from Saturday night was against the popcorn being given in the press room. He probably didn’t realize that is the only food that doesn’t make Cutler’s farts unbearable.

    Great Saturday and huge win. I drove down from Indy to game day and while I realize it was a huge crowd, I feel it could have been better without all the ticketmaster involvement. First come first serve would have created a much better environment and even more would have attended.

    Something Crazy to Think about next year: (btw im not saying all these guys return or that we get all of them, just covering all bases)

    Andrew Harrison – 6’5-210
    Aaron Harrison – 6’5-210
    James Young – 6’7-200
    Andrew Wiggins – 6’7-190
    Julius Randle – 6’9-240
    Aaron Gordon – 6’9-210
    Marcus Lee – 6’10-205
    Dakari Johnson – 7’0-265
    Alex Poythress – 6’7-210
    Willie Cauley – 7’0-230
    Nerlens Noel – 6’10-200
    Archie Goodwin – 6’5-180

    So our SMALLEST player next year is 6’5-210. That is effing RIDICULOUS! That has to be one of the largest rosters EVER!

    some of the juniors at the game saturday:

    UK junior day visitors

    UK had its second junior day of the month, and like the first one on Feb. 9, it was expected to include several highly regarded Ohio prospects, most of whom have multiple major conference offers.

    Some Ohioans thought likely to attend: four-star offensive lineman Nick Richardson, Westerville Central; four-star safety Darius West, Lima Central Catholic; and four-star wide receiver Thaddeus Snodgrass, Springfield High School.

    Richardson is the No. 180 junior by Rivals.com, West is No. 194 and Snodgrass is No. 198

    My MSU Dawgs buddy sums them up as follows:

    “Mississippi state is a bettors gold mine because they are so bad even Vegas can’t put real lines on them. They are probably the worst team in the sec in 10 or 15 years.

    Rick ray? He may be a good coach, who knows? it’s hard to say because the roster is roughly a weak div ii squad…everyone left, no time to recruit, 1 of two returnees out all season, 6 scholarship players total. Even die hard state fans don’t think there is anything that can be done with these poor bastards.

    At least we weren’t pre-season top 5…that would be embarrassing.”

    Congratulations to the Wildcats on a great game! It was an amazing atmosphere to be in attendance for — funniest thing was a guy walks into our section wearing a Kansas jacket. As it turns out he came there to root against Missouri! But the only bad thing was the two older women sitting in front of us that got up and left with about three minutes to go IN REGULATION!!!! I just don’t get it — it was 71-70 at the time!

    #46 Problem comes from the automatic bids. You have all these conferences where the teams aren’t good but they’ll get an auto-bid. So there aren’t truly 68 spots open for the tournament. There are 31 automatic bids, and only 6 major conferences. So you are really down to 33 spots. If there’s an upset in the Big 6 Conferences then the number drops even more.

    per wikipedia – this is what we lost when we didnt get Steve Stepanovich: On the evening of Dec. 27, 1980 Stipanovich accidentally discharged a loaded firearm, hitting himself in the shoulder. He initially told police that a masked intruder, wearing cowboy boots and a flannel shirt broke into his apartment on Sunrise Drive in Columbia, Missouri, and shot him while screaming obscenities about basketball players.

    The next day Stipanovich recanted the story and admitted that he shot himself by accident.5

    If that shot went in I would have run straight to cheapside to take/help create “The Last Shot” – a curious mixture of Dry Gin (in the the spirit of Old Uncle Mays),blue caracao and absynthe. Shot can only be taken with the whole bar counting down from 5. Instead of taking the shot you can take the easy way out and offer it up to your bar buddy in the final 2 seconds. Most will choose to take their chances on their own inspired by the showing in Rupp, but will cite they weren’t aware of the option to pass it off as an excuse.

    When you come to a jump-stop, you’re not supposed to be able to move either foot. You got to go back up off of two feet, or it’s a walk. Unfortunately, refs have gotten away from calling it that way, and guys are getting away with a hop, skip and a jump (so to speak).

    133 — I’m a referee and you are wrong. As long as the feet come down to the ground simultaneously, the player has the ability to use a pivot foot. Another variation of the rule allows for a jump, landing on one foot and then jumping again and landing on both feet. At that point though, you may not use a pivot.

    Matt, there wasn’t a LOT of cocaine in it, but it got the name coca-cola because coca leaves and cola nut were the two big ingredients.

    It’s common knowledge that the world’s most famous secret recipe once contained cocaine; what’s less known is that Coke still uses a coca leaf extract made by the Stepan Company (SCL), the only company in the U.S. that is allowed to process cocaine.



  189. Bluegrass
    11:20 am February 25, 2013 Permalink

    Pemberton called for five ounces of coca leaf per gallon of syrup, a significant dose; in 1891, Candler claimed his formula (altered extensively from Pemberton’s original) contained only a tenth of this amount. Coca-Cola once contained an estimated nine milligrams of cocaine per glass. In 1903, it was removed.[40]

    After 1904, instead of using fresh leaves, Coca-Cola started using “spent” leaves — the leftovers of the cocaine-extraction process with trace levels of cocaine.[41] Coca-Cola now uses a cocaine-free coca leaf extract prepared at a Stepan Company plant in Maywood, New Jersey.

    In the United States, the Stepan Company is the only manufacturing plant authorized by the Federal Government to import and process the coca plant,[42] which it obtains mainly from Peru and, to a lesser extent, Bolivia. Besides producing the coca flavoring agent for Coca-Cola, the Stepan Company extracts cocaine from the coca leaves, which it sells to Mallinckrodt, a St. Louis, Missouri, pharmaceutical manufacturer that is the only company in the United States licensed to purify cocaine for medicinal use.[43]

    88 mph dodgeball makes him the deadliest man on the planet with balls!

    If the ball is a bit underinflated you can throw it extremely hard. You have to squeeze it with your fingers in such a way that it creates a handle and use it as an extra lever.

    Do you think the 96′ team is coming to the Mississippi State game because that is one of the only teams we lost to that year, and they went to the final four? Kind of like a rub it in their face thing that we went all the way that year.

    230- there is no possible scenario where it would be “OK” for UK to rush the court in basketball.
    If that were to happen, that would be the lowest point in Kentucky basketball history ( lower than the Billy Clyde era or Probation)



  238. Jimmy Dykes Caddy
    11:46 am February 25, 2013 Permalink

    Part of the problem with UK’s lack of guard defense stems from the fact that with having Davis and Noel inside over the past two years the defensive strategy has been to force opposing guards to drive the lane where the best shot blockers in the country were waiting. Now that Noel is out we do not have that presents, however it takes a lot of adjusting to change that strategy now. Having stated that, our guards are not the quickest and therefore this team will likely continue to get beat off the dribble.

    #230 It will never be acceptable for UK to rush the court. We are the best program in the history of basketball. No win justifies it for UK.

    J in Orlando- I disagree with that as well. I was in New Orleans last year for the championship and it never crossed my mind, or anybody around me in the UK’s section to do such.
    We are the most elite program in college basketball history.
    We should expect to win every game.
    Would Alabama rush the field for winning a football game?
    Never.
    Can it be justified for UK, ever?
    Never

    No, UK fans should never rush the court.
    3257, fans cannot rush the court after final four games.
    Too much security and must keep floor clear for the after game ceremony.
    Although, I agree that UK fans should not rush after a championship either.

    263- I could care less if he is white. He is our best shooter and when he is in the game, the offense opens up because of his shooting. You watch the first 4 minutes of the game and we always struggle until he comes in. And our defense isn’t that good anyways, so him being in there isn’t that much worse than we already have in there.

    I don’t know if there is ever “too much” security for 35,000 people stampeding a court.
    If people wanted to do it, it couldn’t necessarily be stopped



  266. Jimmy Dykes Caddy
    12:03 pm February 25, 2013 Permalink

    I have been to 6 final fours and it has never happened.
    After a championship game security lines the entire court.
    Also, winning fans want to watch their team receive the hardware.
    Yes, there is enough security and it does not happen.
