University of Kentucky Basketball, Football, and Recruiting news brought to you in the most ridiculous manner possible.

The Good News? Football. The Bad News? Basketball. (Monday Show Thread)

This doesn’t feel right.  Big Blue Nation is excited about football and frustrated over basketball.  It’s not supposed to work like that.  We have a new football coach with a plan to turn Kentucky into a winning program and we have a basketball team that has lost back-to-back games for only the second time under John Calipari.  On this morning’s edition of Kentucky Sports Radio radio, Matt Jones and Ryan Lemond will discuss the state of the two programs after an up-and-down weekend for Big Blue Nation.

Join in on the fun by calling (502) 571-1080 or send a text to the TEXTING MACHINE at (317) 385-5148

Topics include:

—  The loss to Baylor

—  Mark Stoops’ press conference

—  Stoops’ coaching staff

—  Marshall Co. Hoop Fest

    Is it spring yet so we can go to the spring game? Well… it feels like it. Stoops troops! Who knew we would be excited about football in December more than basketball.

    Ryan my co-worker saw you at the mall wearing another tight sweater… hope you bought a new one.

    More excited about football than basketball? Speak for yourself. I’m delighted about Mark Stoops, but that’s not better than getting to watch the likes of Nerlens, Archie, Alex, Willie, Kyle, Ryan and Julius develop. Just wait people.

  35. Matt Jones Momo
    10:13 am December 3, 2012 Permalink

    Sorry Matt but from a fan perspective the Stoops presser was a huge let down. Maybe it was cool for the people there but there was nothing of substance on the presser.

    After watching the presser and the youtube videos its obvious Stoops knows very little about the program. Kinda depressing really considering what we heard about the interview process.

    Its also clear that we arent even close on the funding for stadium improvements and whatnot. It was just a weak atempt from Eli and Mitch to put pressure on the folks at Frankfort, its almost like they know it isnt coming.

    I was at Notre Dame and Baylor game. Very similar mindsets, effort, preparation. When you have problems with “touch” it typically is all about mentality and focus. You miss shots, but there are other things going on. Positioning and confidence are lacking, too.

    Wow, can we cut the “the sky is falling!” crap out with basketball. I know it’s hard to watch our team lose, but anyone who knows anything about basketball knows this team will improve. This is what a team full of freshman is supposed to look like.

    Best Case: they greatly improve and we get a good seed in NCAA tourney

    Worst Case: Cal has his FIRST down year and more players than usual return for a stellar year next year.

    Cal has bought himself some time by winning the Championship. We need to lighten up. I get sad when we lose too, but there is way too much overreacting going on. And there is way too much time left in the season. Don’t forget we hung with Duke like pros.

    One fact that Matt will poo-poo about basketball is that this is the first year we dont have a Gillispie player playing a huge roll on the team. Liggins, Miller, Patterson, and Harrelson were absolutely huge these last few years.

    For all intents and purposes this is the first real Cal team with all his players and we are 4-3. Im afraid this doesnt bode well for the future.

    #35 What press conference did you watch? I don’t expect the man to know everything about the program right now, hell 18 hours ago he was winning the ACC Championship.

    People forget that two years ago the team was awful until 2 games before the SEC tournament. This year’s team is no different. With kids who are a year removed from high school it takes time for everything to mesh together. It is impossible for anyone to get amazing talent like Anthony Davis every year and for the cats to come out of the gate the best team in the nation. It takes time. One thing that we all should know by now is that Cal knows what he is doing and will have this team playing much better by March.

    A guy sent me a nasty text about Archie Goodwin during the game. He called him every name in the book and said he’s not watching anymore. What kind of fan is that?

    Kentucky will NOT have a down year in basketball. This is a VERY young team with no real experienced players (at Kentucky) to lean on/learn from. Cal is the best coach in the country and, although they’re taking a few lumps (and may take more), they’ll still be one of the best teams in the country by March.

    1. Cal develops players and teams.
    2. The talent on this team is great.
    3. All the “Can Harrow play PG at UK?” talk…Just stop. He’s a good player. He doesn’t have to be John Wall.

    Now, the idiot morons talking trash to OUR players. You’re scum. You’re not even scum, but the crap on the bottom of scum’s shoes. Go to hell.

There is always the chance that the youngsters turn it around and play themselves in the first round (see Marquis Teague at this time of last season) which would open up more scholarships.

    While Alan Cutler’s question to Stoops was so very Alan Cutler for sure, you missed out on the best of Cutler by not seeing his TV coverage leading up to the press conference. He was describing EVERYTHING that was going on. He said in his serious reporter, slightly whispered voice things like, “They are now playing a video on the screen. This is a video that they play at the actual football games. I think the purpose of this video is to get the fans excited. You can see that there is a large inflatable football helmet. I believe Stoops will be coming out of this helmet soon.” Wow. What would I have done without the great wordsmith Alan Cutler to describe these things for me. Oh wait. I could have used some of my five senses and just observed it on my television screen. Cutler cracks me up.

    Matt, what did you think about Harrow? I thought he did well, especially in the 2nd half … he did really well with the pick and roll with Noel. Defensively he made his man make some very difficult shots over him which you cannot help. He seems to have a better feel for reading the defense off of the pick and roll and takes what the defense gives him. Archie pre-determines what he is going to do. I think Cal just needs to start Harrow. This force feeding Archie is not the answer.

    I was at the game Saturday, and I don’t know if I can ever recall seeing so many shots going halfway in the cylinder and popping out. This has to be very frustrating for the players, especially the freshmen, and things like this can snowball and affect their confidence. I think a few games against weaker teams, coupled with more practice time over the Christmas break, will do wonders for their confidence and offensive execution. I still expect them to drop some games (especially on the road) in conference play, but Cal’s teams always seem to make a dramatic improvement heading into mid January.

He told me that in the big strong 4.4 in KY hasn’t played against more then 3-4 other big strong 4.4 kids in there entire life time where as the kid in the south and other places plays against 3-4 others just as fast and strong as him every Friday night. He said this difference is huge once they reach the college level where every one is fast and strong and it takes them much longer to adjust to the speed and physicality of the game and sometimes they never do.

    Matt would you really go up to her and say ‘Hey young lady’ or ‘hey young woman’ Just go up to her and say hi and start a conversation about the game or something. You don’t have to call her anything. Learn her name and call her that. You sound like an old man if you go up to her and say ‘well hello there young lady.’

    Dude, ND chick was NOT that hot. She was flaunting that JV stuff starting pregame. Factor in the sports dude syndrome. Most girls in a skirt at a ballgame look better than in normal life. She was a 6.7 at best.

    Re: hollerin at girls
    Depends on the parties involved:

    Mexicans – “Psssst” “Click-click”
    African American – “baby girl” (identify by clothing, attributes) “whussup skirt” “whussup blue shirt”
    White – “wow, hello!” “excuse me, can I ask you a question?…(insert dumb question here) “hey, my friend wants to know your name”

    As a parent of 3-year-old twin boys, I can definitely say that they “synch” up OFTEN. Not even looking at one another, they will oftentimes do the exact same things at the same time.

    Matt, your Mom is right. It may be a generational thing, since I think I’m close to her age. Perhaps we had to fight through the glass ceiling more than today’s women and resent the use of old boy terms, like “girl”. When I hear that, I first cringe, then shake my head, then usually find a way to use the word “boy” in response. At least that should make a guy think that his inappropriate use of the word “girl” is wrong.

    bottom line we as UK fans are spoiled and so quickly forget where we were a few short years ago.

    It also shows us just how special the freshmen players last season were. They truly were BETTER, more mature physically and mentally. We will be fine, going to take a while, and look at it like this…we may not lose a single player at the end of this season.

    IMAGINE, this group with experience then bring in the freshmen….we’ll be hanging #9 after this year. With that said, doesn’t mean they won’t get on track and become unstoppable before the end of this season.

    WE WILL BE FINE!!!
