    I live in Indy…there is a lot of optimism up here about their Hoosiers. Everyone thinks they have a good chance to knock of the Cats. Dan Dakich said on his radio show that he didn’t think it would be an upset if IU beats UK.

    This is what I wrote in regards to John McNamara and his logic

    He reminds me of a young Andy Rooney in that pic…”You ever wonder why people rank teams the way they do? I like to do it by favorite color, mine is red so I made OSU #1, Kentucky probably should be but they are blue and that color means sadness. Orange is closer to red so I make Syracuse #2, now that I have 2 happy colors I can add a blue. I always like to have more happiness and sadness and isn’t that how we all should live?”

    Amazing how Matt can take any situation and decide that he knows more about it than the people involved. Even after he admitted he didn’t listen to the show. Once again Matt is wrong, but continues to yell the loudest until he convinces himself he is right.

    If the players don’t treat every game the same, then you overlook teams and they could lose. Like UNC overlooked UNLV because they had WISC and UK coming up

    Basketball in the state of Kentucky is ridiculous…. Our population as a state ranks 26th out of the 50 states…. we only make up 1.39% of the total US population. Somehow though UK is the #1 team in college basketball, UL is the #5 team in college basketball and in the latest poll Murray State has received 10 votes to be ranked in the top 25!!! You know Western KY will make the tournament and so will Morehead…. that’s 5 of 64 teams that will play in the tournament! Kentucky will AGAIN make up 7.8% of the big dance! Incredible…All from a state with no ‘official’ city… The only other comparable state is North Carolina, but they’re the 10th most populated state in the nation with twice as many people as Kentucky and they (as of late) only have two relevant teams both of which are ranked below Loserville… Horse racing my ass…Basketball is our culture through and through…I love it!! Go Big Blue

    I don’t think it was until another caller that he went back and then went on his rant



  23. Red
    10:18 am December 6, 2011 Permalink

    It seems to me that Cal’s rant is clearly deliberate and extremely smart. He has a very young team that’s ranked #1 in the nation that’s also coming off a big UNC victory. Every time these players turn on the TV they are being told how great they are, every time they leave the lodge they are told how awesome they are. Friends, family, and classmates are all expressing emotions that can lead young players to think that there work is now done. This is a dangerous period in the season. A young team can very easily buy into the hype and drift away from Cal’s instruction and demands. In such times it’s a genius move to create a little friction between the team and the fans. It creates a bit of a shell between the two. It allows Cal to reinforce his control by pointing to negative stories and tweets and radio talk show calls etc etc. Now he can get them back into “us vs them” mode. It’s a smart move and I for 1 agree with it. It also has the added bonus of helping with recruiting.

    #21 Wishful thinking man. The only way Morehead and Murray can both get in the tourney is for Morehead to win the OVC and Murray State to get an at large bid. Morehead is really struggling this year with the loss of Faried, and Murray State would have to beat Memphis to have any shot at making the tourney as an at large. Western is struggling as well. Three teams from the state at the max.

    The good thing about Cal talking so much is that when its the first time you hear it, it sounds pretty impressive. When he first got here we all were eating out of his hand. Now that we’ve all heard him preaching for three years, its starting to get a little old, but it definitely is good for the program overall to keep a consistent message.

    90 – Don’t worry about what stupid people say. If you know basketball — and go to one of his practices — you will see right away he is a very unique, skilled, and focused basketball coach. He is currently setting a trend many other college coaches are following when it comes to teaching how to attack offensively. He is also a brilliant defensive coach (stats don’t lie). Coach Calipari will go down as a legend and will be a Hall of Fame coach whose teachings will be documented in coaching books for years to come.

I told him had it not been for my Grand being with me I’d drop his Bobby Knight cursing mouth so hard it would take forever and a day to find those ill fitting used false teeth he’s got in that pawn shop down town filthy minded pie hole.

Thats just stupid. $5,000 is pocket change to these guys bc their gonna be millionaires next year. Anthony Davis doesnt need a couple thousand, he could go get a loan right now and get however much he wanted bc they know hes gonna be a millionaire next year. People saying we pay our players is one of the dumbest statements I’ve ever heard of.

  157. IU Fan
    11:42 am December 6, 2011 Permalink

    1) UK…. they are very talented and good basketball team.
    2) they are very young and have not been in a hostile environment yet! No true road games. Neutral court only. Cal does this to protect all the freshman’s fragile mind set. He does this every year.
    3)Teague is not playing very well, a lot of turn overs and not playing within the flow of the game. I’m guessing he enters the game with a chip on his shoulders and thinks he has something to prove to the folks in Indiana. He either has a really good game or a horrible game. I am guessing that he does not play that well. We match up with him pretty well and can put a defender on him that is more athletic.
    4) over all the match up for this game is pretty good other than the 2 guard for UK.
    5) young team UK in a hostile environment for the first time. Historically UK team under Cal have not dealt with this well for the first time.
    6) I think Zeller get Davis in foul trouble. He uses a lot of up fakes and pump fakes, Davis will go for the block and Zeller will go to the line.
    7) the Christian Watford and Jones matchup is a pretty close matchup and Would call it a wash.
    8) Indiana is deeper than Kentucky as they can go 8 or 9 deep without losing a thing. UK is currently only going six deep. With the style of this game (fast pace, up and down) this could become an issue.

    Overall this is going to be a good game. To be honest I think IU will want it more. Everything to gain nothing to lose. All the pressure will be on UK.

    I say IU 75 UK 71 due to home court, Teague’s double digit turn overs, and Zeller getting Davis in foul trouble. Once Davis is gone then the next tallest player on the UK roster is 6’9”.

    Just my guess as I have watched both teams and am a honest basketball fan. UK will not blow Indiana out as in years past. Not this year!

    An even better post…

    The home court advantage will be a HUGE difference in this game. These young Cats have never been in this type of a hostile environment. I know that CTC will have the boys ready for all 40 minutes coming out and opening a big can of whoop A**.

    CWat will finally come out of his shell and show some leadership!

    VJIII has his best game of his Senior season!

    Jordie goes for 18 pts. and 14 assists!

    Zeller will dominate from the first minute until the final score will be:

    Indiana 85

    Blue Boys 74

    This will be an EPIC Battle where IU exercises many years of demons, and CTC will be leading the IU FIght Song for hours after the game.

So it’s likely that they won’t make it to the big dance given that they would then have to win the conference championship of which is possible but not likely this season as Murray state is so good.
