Staying positive with six games left (Tuesday Show Thread)

It’s been a rough week since Nerlens Noel went down last Tuesday, but it’s important we stay positive as this regular season winds down.  Today on Kentucky Sports Radio radio, Matt and Ryan will keep that positivity rolling as they discuss the chances of a Noel return and what UK needs to do to make the tournament.

Join in on the fun by calling (502) 571-1080.

    I hope Shannon plays some more wacky sound effects. I think Matt was on the verge of an epic tirade yesterday. Who was it that was coughing as you guys went off the air yesterday?

    Number 5, I believe you are dreaming. This team was winning ugly against bad teams with Noel. Now that Noel is gone, we can expect to see about what we saw Saturday or maybe a little better. Florida and Missouri will throttle UK at Rupp.

    The general consensus among my friends and family is that it’s over in terms of a tournament berth. We are trying to take comfort in the last 3 years and just accept what this year has been and will be.

    I think winning the SEC tournament isn’t a totally ridiculous thought either. We could have our backs against the wall, which would add some desperation. We’ll be in Nashville, which was a major homecourt advantage the last time we wer there. And there’s only 1 team that’s any good that we’d have a hard time beating on a neutral court (Florida). If they’re on the other side of the bracket and perhaps get a little disinterested, like a lot of the top teams do in conference tourneys, we might not even have to beat them to get the auto-bid.



  23. UKBlue
    10:16 am February 19, 2013 Permalink

    1. We haven’t played good enough & frankly we aren’t good enough to be in the tournament. 2. At this point why would we want to be in the tournament just to get beat early? 3. Apparently our players don’t want to be in or play in the tournament because they sure don’t act like it, and their lack of apparently even caring shouldn’t be rewarded. 4. If our players don’t want to be in the tournament, than why should we? 5. Unless you’re a glutton for punishment; why in the world would we want to extend this disaster of a season longer than needed?

    There is no way anybody should think this season is over! Yeah Saturday we got be and we got beat bad! But that was are first game with out Noel! Bbn js needs to believe in this team and support them and not turn are back on them. We can make the tourney no doubt in my mind..we may not blow out teams by 15 or 10 but we will fight and find ways to win and end up in the tournament. Go big blue!!

    26) Poythress is a very smart guy, cant see him skipping out. Harrow is 3 years in and surely realizes the NBA isnt in his future, therefore needing a degree. I do see archie saying forget it, but hopefully the coaching staff makes sure he completes the semester.

    If we come out and smash Vanderbilt on Wednesday night, how much will the mood change for the fan base? I imagine quite a bit even though Vandy stinks. I think one dominating performance could get the ball rolling in the right direction and give the team confidence.

    It sucks that this team has not come together so far, but it would be so much worse if we had not won a national championship and gone to the FF two straight years. Every program has a hiccup now and then. For me, the pressure is off, and I am going to continue to pull hard for this team in the hopes that the light goes on and they turn it around and win a few games. I think it is just a crisis of confidence for these kids, and maybe we as fans need to get on board and support them instead of being so negative. If they stink it up the rest of the year and the season ends early, then that is the time to let them have it. Until then, we need to show the nation that we are the best fans in the world and get behind this team. If not, we will look like spoiled, bad fans to the rest of the country.

    Matt, UK should check with Keeneland about moving the Bluegrass Stakes race up a couple of races on the race card. It’s not like Keeneland is going to lose money at their non-profit organization. This would help get people to the spring game on time.

    Everyone can agree that it would be better to play in the NCAA vs. the NIT. The question is would you rather play in play in game and LOSE vs. making the finals of the NIT. To me the play in game isn’t the real tournament. So I would rather make the finals of the NIT.

    Ryan is almost right there. The refs don’t “kind of have to work as a team”, they MUST work as a team. I’m a ref at the high school level and you are to always work as a team to do your best to always get the calls right. Getting that call wrong is a big-time embarrassment to that crew and I’m sure the other refs were not happy with Shows.

    I’ve been trying to get through but the phones are busy so I’m just going to post it here. I’ve got two points.
    1. I don’t feel like I know this team. The last three teams, I’ve felt like I knew those guys. Like if I saw them out in public, I feel like I could go up and talk to them. For some reason I don’t feel that way about this team, except for maybe Noel, Polson, and Wiltjer.
    2. Something that has bothered me all season about this team is effort. I feel like I can offer a bit of a different perspective on this. I’m a paraplegic and use a wheelchair; it drives me absolutely nuts to see these kids have such athletic and able bodies, but at times they don’t seem to really even care. I don’t think some of them realize where they are, and the opportunity that they’ve been given.

    Matt, can you address SEC officiating in general? The head ref is still Gerald Beaudreaxxxxxxx, who was one of the worst refs on the floor every game when he was in the active ref rotation. A business or professional culture takes after its leadership, and antil someone competent is in charge, there will continue to be these travashamockerys impersonating officials, ruining competitive play in the SEC year after year.

    If you rewatch Shows screw up watch when Cal brings Shows and the other ref together for explanation. Read the lips, Cal ask the other ref “so you said it was our ball?” And the other ref responds yes, then watch Shows reaction. He’s horrible

    This WHOLE team, but especially Harrow and Goodwin, would get the best results by simply focusing on playing tough defense and forget about worrying about offense. We can create plenty of offense just by playing good defense. That is what has been the most frustrating thing about this team – uncontested layups and dunks by the other team.

    Dickie V was there bashing the UK fanbase early this season when we were upset with the team. Dickie V is alright but I get tired of him telling fanbases what they should think. BBN isn’t the avg fanbase, we may go overboard sometimes, but typically we have a good understanding of what kind of team we have.

    A former Vols starter from the 80’s (Kevin Woods) runs my son’s league over at HOOPS in Louisville. He was bragging the other day about the ass-kickin’ that happened Saturday. He did make a point to say, however, that he had to brag now because the Vols will have no chance in hell of beating the Cats next year.

    Bottom line is that Archie needs a shot doctor. Just jacking up more shots is not a good thing for him because he is just repeating bad habits. He is an awful outside shooter for a guard — one of the worst I’ve ever seen at the college level.

    What I took away from that interview with Archie was that he didn’t have a clue about the corrections he needed to make to his form, he was just “getting up more shots”–meaning repeating the same bad habits over and over again. Until somebody shows him he needs to get his elbow up over his head to put more arch on his shot and has him practice that over and over again his shot is not going to improve.

    The growth plate is called the epiphyseal plate and actually allows space between bones for them to grow together. Once someone starts to mature, the plate slowly becomes part of the original hard bone taking away the space. It being broken shouldnt cause problems now since it should be a part of the original bone. And yes, I stayed in a holiday inn last night.

    173 – I don’t disagree that a lot of people are there for the race, but I think it’s more because of the build-up and spectacle than their actual interest in the horses (separate from their rooting interest in a winning ticket). I’d venture to guess that the people that actually recognize or care about the Derby ramifications is a pretty small percentage. Just my opinion.
