    Stuart Hammer did a great job covering the game last night. Im glad he posted the video of Teague using the defender as a step ladder, I had to rewind that 3-5 times last night to make sure I actually saw what I thought I saw. Great job KSR.

    UK’s current 3-pt% is 37%.
    Last year (considered a GREAT shooting team) was 40%.
    So, out of every 100 shots we make 3 less on average than last year.

    I hate the “we can’t hit the 3 consistently” argument.

    Comment From John
    how do we plan on using bookie cobbins this year?
    10:52

    Tee Martin:
    I’m excited about Bookie Cobbins, a kid who redshirted last year. I had a conversation this week about playing more of a role as a WR/QB. He’s a prototype, Randall Cobb-type of guy and can be used in similar ways and similar packages like how we used Randall. Speed, quickness and size just needs to be developed as a receiver. This spring will be huge for him in a development standpoint but he’s a guy we want to get the ball in his hands.
    there u go matt that was my question to tee martin.



  108. Jax Teller
    11:03 am February 1, 2012 Permalink

    Matt- last night on your post-game show, you said that over the past 3 games, UK’s point total was the lowest in history over a 3 game period since the inception of the shot clock. They scored 200 total points (57,69,74), or 66.6 per game. Are you sure that’s accurate? Billy G’s teams never scored less than 200 points in 3 games? I call foul on that stat. No way the early Pitino teams or late Tubby teams or any BCG teams didn’t score less than 200 over 3 games.

    Big Brothers/ Big Sisters of Lexington is in financial trouble because a secretary embezzled almost a half million dollars that was never recovered. And it aparently took place over several years unchecked. I know it may sound harsh, but perhaps an organization with such a lack of oversight and accountability should fold.

    What do the folks at the pizza place think they’re buying with a donation to this organization? Is Matt not allowed to ever mention the incident again? Do they think this will be instantly erased from everyone’s memory? Nice to make a donation, but it won’t erase this disgusting incident from history. Obviously, the owners are ignorant chickenhead fans who think that its OK to bounce genitals on the food of people that aren’t ignorant chickenheads.

    Should be the lesser of $1000 or $500 + 15%. But like Matt said, there’s no way I’m advertising that place. BB/BS gets $1,000 no matter what. I think a stronger statement would be a boycott of the place on those particular games. In other words hit them where it hurts.

    the problem is the guy knows if there are two games where 15% of the sales go to good brothers, he is more likely to get people to come in for the cause and actually end up profiting from the incident.

    the point is the restaurant should be punished, not rewarded for the incident.

    The owners STILL don’t seem to get it, because they suggested a donation based on their sales on UK game days with YOU helping to do the promotional work. They really seem to think that YOU are a part of the problem, and therefore should be a part of the resolution. They don’t seem to catch on that you are doing them a big service by not publicizing it even more and then suing them.
