Sometimes in the Morning I Like to be Incredulous

I can’t tell if Capilouto is trying to give him the trophy, or take it from him.

I honestly can’t think of anything to say right now.  I stayed up way too late, got up way too early, and have way too much adrenaline pumping to think clearly right now.  I cannot believe how good this team was from start to finish, and I can’t believe we’re already in the offseason.  I can’t believe that Anthony Davis went 1-10 from the field, and we still won by eight.  I absolutely could not believe Marquis Teague showing off his Doctor J in the first half, avoiding a block by Thomas Robinson.  Who knew he could do THAT?  Not to mention that three-pointer and a couple free throws at the end to ice the game.  Kid was unreal.

I can’t imagine how Darius Miller feels right now, after going through so much since his freshman year.  If anybody wanted this one more than Cal, it was him.  And if anybody in my family wanted to win more than me last night, it was my grandparents, who I can’t believe were up when I called them at midnight just to say “Go Cats.”  Of course they were up, I don’t know why I doubted them.

I can believe that these Cats won the tournament; we all expected them to from Selection Sunday.  But I can’t believe the road they had to take to get there, and the poise they showed throughout.  Rematch with a rival school that beat you in the regular season?  No problem.  Final Four game against in-state enemy with all the pressure in the world on your back?  Child’s play.  Title game against the “other” Player of the Year candidate who feels like he has something to prove?  Done and done.  This is maybe the best tournament run of my lifetime, and I can’t believe I was able to watch every minute of it.

So this morning, as I wake up and realize that it wasn’t all a dream (although I seriously did dream about it last night), I can only sit and shake my head.  There’s so many different things that stood out, but as an overall performance, as a year-long product of hard work and unreal talent, this team is one of the best to ever put on the Kentucky jersey.  Those other teams did some great things, but this year I think they deserve a special name to remember them by.

Because the Cats in ’92 were called the Unforgettables.  In ’96 they were called the Untouchables.  In ’98 they were called the Comeback Cats.

 

In 2012?  I can only call them the Unbelievables.

    I think the Unbelievables is pretty good. I have a feeling the content on KSR today may be a bit below par. Im sure its tough to write an article after the stress of the game plus the lack of sleep. Maybe a surprise NJT post.

    I can’t believe TJones rolled his ankle early and kept battling Robinson as if it was no big deal. I saw him limping during dead balls a few times, but he never slowed down and never stopped fighting. Heart of a champion.

    12. Cal told Katz at the end of the night that he would like to coach an undefeated team. Undefeated and every game by 25. Cal was being Cal. But his first point was the fans wanted a return to significance in recruiting and performance.

    Naming teams was pitinos thing. This site disrespects him like no other. Naming teams is for coaches IF they choose to cooperate. Cal could care less about naming teams.

    Undeniables isn’t bad. Devastation Inc. is so corny that it works (and I can’t get that caller’s voice out of my head every time I hear it). And #42, STFU and go away negative Nancy. We just won the title!

    I heard people say that Anthony Davis maybe the best ever @ UK… Maybe best defensive player ever but i think the Monster Mash was the best ever!!! He could do it all…but Davis is up there no doubt because he changed the game as well but defensively. It is hard to rank because of the different eras though…

    Steve Kerr just called Kevin Garnett a POOR MAN’S ANTHONY DAVIS. Brow down. In other news why the hell does jones keep letting Corey post this retarded garbage? It’s as big of a head scratcher as Matt’s communist political views.

    THE CLUTCH CATS – they rarely had to come back and always seemed to find one player who could come up with the bucket when it mattered most. The definition of CLUTCH.

    My vote is for the Undeniables. There was a lot of hating going on all season about 1 and dones and how it’s trashing college basketball. This team played together and for one another, and as much as people thought they would cruise-control into their multi-million dollar lifestyles, they reached down deep and stayed the course! Being greedy, I would love it to get to watch them wearing blue and white for a few more years, but I can check nba box scores too. Everybody in the media that hadnt watched us played wanted us to lose. Now they can all bear witness, to the UNDENIABLES! #8pril

    My opinion only, the only thing a true Kentucky fan can do at this point with this team and coaching staff is call it what it is, GR8NESS! That one word SAYS IT ALL in more ways than one, and now all we can do is look forward to the next recruiting class and it all starts over again. But it can’t, we as True Blue have been spoiled this year and may never again see a team like what we had this glorious year! Very special people, good teammates, and memories for the rest of our lives!

    The best name was suggested by Robinson and Young from Kansas. They said AD is not Superman and they are right because he is “Batman” like in 186 or so bated balls and he has 5 or so Robins to help so I submit “Batman and the Robins” as the nickname. The Un this or Un that is Pitino stuff from a different era.

    Honestly, I can’t believe it took until comment number 62 for someone to point out that Unbelievables was taken…I like the following: The Undeniables, The Inevitables, The Block, Won and Dones, I can’t believe it’s not butter. Get that Devastation, Inc. crap out of here. That’s terrible. I don’t care how it sounded.

    I have mentioned the undeniables a few times on here, and I will stick with it.

    Even if Kyle Tucker decides he wants to print it in the Courier Journal and take credit for it.
