    I love the Sklar Brothers! I saw them at Improv in Louisville…funny as hell and huge sports fan. Kudos to KSR for getting two awesome guests for an otherwise slow week.

    Asking some of the BBN not to be ridiculous and embarrassing is like asking Billy Gillespie to drink responsibly and make wise investment decisions.

    Shannon: “I’ve done it. It’s fun.”

    Shannon: “No, I was strapped to some random guy.”

    ……Oh parachuting…..Whew!

    A lot of talk about the 2012-2013 Cats- Sorry bout the book. I got into this and it got out of hand.

    This will truly be the first real example of an “all freshman team”. The national media kind of jumped the shark labeling each of the last 3 teams that. Sure, they relyed more on freshman than anyone else in the nation, and they put more guys in the NBA in a 3 year span than anyone else. But Cal’s Cats outperformed everyone in the nation (Average finish- 3rd in the final AP Poll; #1,#3,#5).

    However, all that success hasn’t silenced every one of Calipari’s the critics completely. Corey posts below that “freshman can’t win it all” is an antiquated way of thinking. To us it is, but I think those cries have been muffled rather than silenced. That opinion is still strong in the minds of the Digger Phelps, the Bob Knights, and dozens of other national sports writers & commentators who, despite the facts, still can’t grasp the changes that have taken place in the college game in the past decade. And if UK falls this year (which IMO probably should take a step back), those voices will come out louder than ever. I can hear it now, “Well, last year wasn’t really a team of one-and-done’s. They had Miller, Lamb, and Jones. This team’s really John’s first 1&D team and look what happened” You know it’s true.

    That being said, I’m excited about this group. I might be a little anxious to see what Calipari can do after losing 90+% of their offense, rebounding, minutes played, etc. If this team falls short of a Final 4 or even Elite 8, it won’t be because they’re all freshman though. It will be because the talent is not quite as good, compared to this year. I don’t think anyone can doubt Calipari’s ability to get his guys to play as a team, but not only did they operate like a well oiled machine, UK’s top 7 players were ranked by Rivals coming out of HS- 41st D1, 21st DL, 22nd KW, 2nd AD, 13th TJ, 3rd MKG, and 5th MT. Average ranking 15.4. That’s just insane! For the top SEVEN guys to rank inside the top 15 is pretty unbelievable and hard to duplicate(ahem 2013). Not even the 2009-2010 squad with Wall & Boogie was that highly ranked because Dodson wasn’t in the top 100. Next year’s top 7, as it is today, would average 35.1 (2nd NN, 8th AP, 14 AG, 40th WC-S, 19th RH, 40th JH, Beckham N/R 101) I factor in 101 for any non-ranked players.

    I know recruiting rankings aren’t everything. And you could easily argue that the 2010-2011 team wasn’t ranked highly either, and you’d be right. Their average rank was 35.8. I’m not saying that next year’s team can’t be special. I’m saying they really shouldn’t be “top 5 all year” special. To expect them to be is probably a little unrealistic. Given Cal’s track record though, to expect them to be special in March isn’t.

    Tony sounds like a complete moron. Split the 70,000 seats every two years = 35,000 each. Taking the UK seats every other year is only 24,000 seats and IU is somewhere around 14,000 every other year. There is no contest there. IU just knows that we will outspend IU fans as a whole every year and they are scared there fans can’t get in.

    I said this then and I’ll say it now, UK fans were not protected while at Bloomington. I heard many stories about Cat fans being harassed, cursed at, beer thrown on them, and most of all threatened families because of the drunks. I don’t blame Cal one bit. Crean said that the students wouldn’t be able to travel 55 miles to watch the game. I know for a fact they travel better than 60 miles for a case of beer. Crean’s afraid Lucus will be filled in all that’s BLUE….I hate the series to end but screw IU and their dumba$$ fans!

    Vanetti’s argument is separate from UofL, completely. Accept it as if he were a neutral fan and look at the meat of it.

    Now that you’ve done that, rip it apart because it’s a weak argument. Calipari’s statements that he needs to adjust his schedule (aka lighten it when necessary) because he has a vulnerable team is silly, but in the end they STILL wanted to play Indiana…NEXT YEAR. They’ll replace the UNC game with UCLA/Kansas/Michigan and lose IU due to financial reasons.

    He’s right about the Matt Jones attack strategy, and you did call him a fraud…but I’m OK with that.

    Use this for facts tony. Please, I beg of you, rebuttle. He has to replace these home and homes with guaranteed home games and then a couple neutral games which IU would have been and would likely replace our annual freedom hall game which is normally with a small team. Bottom line… $$$$$$ idiots! If that wasn’t true, your cardinals wouldn’t play that many either.

    When they ran the story, they misquoted me AND made sure to close out the story with paragraphs about how dangerous ATVs are and how many people they kill a year. I sent them an email ripping them a new one and told them we didnt need their coverage.
