UK Fans of the Day Want Afternoon Notes


A few notes on a beautiful Monday morning….

 – The only other notable thing to come out of Calipari’s turn on the SEC Coaches Teleconference today besides his reasoning for not letting the bench log some minutes during the blowout of South Carolina was his take on Josh Harrellson’s game Saturday. Calipari said that he was originally frustrated a bit with Jorts’ effort against the Gamecocks, but looked at the tape and came away impressed with what he saw. Cal said he was initially frustrated with his lone senior missing some easy shots, but the film revealed that he put bodies on guys to grab rebounds, helped his teammates and passed the ball well. Cal noted that Harrellson’s success is due to him being in great shape and the confidence he’s built through “demonstrated performance”. He said that Josh is building his own self-confidence. If only his Twitter account were around to see it…

 – The new polls were released this morning and UK stayed at #22 in both.  Florida moved up to #13 in the coaches poll, followed by the SEC’s other representative, Vanderbilt, at #18.  Lousiville ranks 16th.  The AP voters put them all in the same position.  Followers.

 – Tom Leach had Dick Vitale on The Leach Report this morning and the loudest voice in college basketball again took the time to talk about how Enes Kanter got robbed out of playing this year and voiced optimism for the team going forward.  As is the case whenever he joins the Voice of the Wildcats, it made for solid radio.  He even talked about our little contest a bit.  You can listen here.

 – With their season just getting underway and expectations again high, the UK launched an interactive website for the baseball team, which, like the previous interactive site, is aimed at potential recruits.  It has all the fancy bells and whistles you don’t get here at Kentucky Sports Radio, with the obvious advantage of having no insight from Bryan The Intern.  Seems like a win-win.  You can see it here.

 – Speaking of the baseball team, junior pitcher Alex Meyer was named National Player of the Week by Louisville Slugger.  The 6’9″ righthander struck out thirteen batters against Miami of Ohio Sunday.  If he can rebound and defend, we could be in business.

 – In what seems to be a recurring issue these days, another Kansas Jayhawk found himself in some trouble.  Tyshawn Taylor was suspended indefinitely by Bill Self Monday for the always vague “violation of team rules”.  Taylor, you might remember, was suspended last year for fighting with the football team.  The Jayhawks also suspended Mario Little earlier this year when he was arrested after a domestic disturbance. 

Finally, if you missed Kentucky Sports Radio this morning, you deprived your ears of the Turkey Hunter and Matt and Zach talking all things UK sports.  Make sure you give the podcast a listen below.

    #4, I wondered that too. The teams in all five spots ahead of us all went 2-0 as well. On a separate note, I’ve hit 40 and admittedly my eye for this sort of thing isn’t as good as it once was, but a couple of those girls have to be underage.

    #4 my thoughts exactly.. Two wins this week and I am sure that we will move up… it makes me sick that UofL is ranked ahead of us and we beat them.. They lost last week we didnt how does this make sense

    How the hell did we stay at same position in both polls, and go down in seeding on bracketology after going 2-0 last week? I’m not gonna freak out or nothing but really?

    4, 11 – I would venture to say we stayed at 22 by default. Other than UL, no team within 8 spots of UK lost last week. And even though UL lost, they also beat UConn, so that was a wash. If we win both games this week, I see a big jump in our future.

    gotta think poll voters looked at home wins over bad Miss. St. team and bad SC team and wasn’t impressed…4-5 seed is about right for Cats at this point, which translates to about a 16-20 ranking…22 may be a little low, but who cares. Win out and we’ll be right where we need to be heading into tourneys.

    How does Duke vault past four teams to # 1 ….I know the first four lost but Duke also has two losses. Maybe Seth Davis can explain tomorrow on KSR at 11:40.

    4) and 8) . . . two wins in the SEC doesn’t mean $H!T… Calipari can whine all he wants about how (snicker) good the SEC is and how “overrated” the BIG BEAST is but the ones who KNOW (AP AND COACHES POLLS) show the SEC is WEAK and you can WIN one and LOSE one and stay ranked 16th in nation when you play BIG BEAST basketball. It IS what it IS! THE BEST CONFERENCE IN THE NATION! As ESPN and CBS BOTH stated on nationa TV, you play better competition and HARDER TO WIN in the BIG EAST TOURNEY THAN YOU PLAY IN THE NCAA TOURNEY! Sorry to burst your bubble COACH!!!!!!

    SEC??? Really? UK killed UL and Notre Dame supposedly 2 of the best teams in the conference. Both games in Louisville too!!! Big East is overrrated. The Big East has more mediocre middle teams like Villanova, UL, Notre Dame, Syracuse, UConn, WV, Cincy. Nobody who really deserves to be in the top 20. Pitt on the other hand is a good team.

    #22 TROLL alert.

    Loser UL tardinal who still can’t get over the beatdown in the ville.

    Big East is all hype thanks to the ESPN hype machine.

    UK,Florida,Vandy,UGA,UT and Bama will do better in the NCAA’s than the Big East will.

    27 -It’s been 7 years since the mighty Big East won an NCAA Title. The SEC has 2 in that time. And in the last 20 years, the Big East have 3. The SEC has 5. None by UL. Facts.

    Half of ULs fan base weren’t even born the last time they won the whole thing, but talk all that sh*t. The last time UL won the NCAA…….

    How do you not include the performance of Brittany Cervantes from the softball team winning SEC Player of the Week?? It is extremely difficult to do that in the SEC with all the talent in the league but I feel she deserves to be recognized for her tremendous week.

    #27, no matter what arguement you want to make, you can’t escape 3 basic truths:

    1. We beat you convincingly on your home court.

    2. We beat you last year too.

    3. Calipari is undefeated against the Cardinals as UK coach.

    Why don’t you wait until you beat Cal’s Cats at least once before trying to talk smack? Until then, just stay home and keep your line beard trimmed.

    maybe you should spend less time in the tattoo parlor and trimming your chin beard and do some research before you talk smack…you want to talk about RPI?….well let’s do that because the Cats have had a higher RPI than the cards all year….currently 16th to your 25th…..and while we’re at it lets talk strength of schedule….17th to your 21st….so go take your “beast” talk back to the projects and “throw your L’s up” to somebody stupid enough to listen to you….
