UK Fans of the Day Want Afternoon Notes and Podcast

Today’s UK Fans of the Day are survivors of the cruise ship that went down outside of Isola del Giglio last week. Say hello to Lauren and Jordan and be thankful they came away from the tragic accident unscathed.

Afternoon notes…

— 90 minutes until Derek Willis announces his school. Sit tight.

— Calipari said today that he will probably continue to bring Lamb off the bench to provide a spark for the offense. He said he moved Lamb to sixth man to “make him fight.” Lamb is averaging almost 11 points since Darius Miller was bumped into the starting lineup three games ago. He scored four points at Tennessee and 14 against both Auburn and Arkansas.

— Coach Cal also addressed the new “blarge” phenomenon. Cal believes any block/charge call should be a block to prevent defenders from sliding under an airborne offensive player. He suggested that officials watch the game and not the flopping. And as far moving the new block/charge arc out two more feet goes, Cal said, “Play basketball. You can either guard your guy or you can’t.” Cal said the new arc was put in place to reduce offensive fouls.

— “If your personality isn’t aggressive, you should be an accountant.” That’s how Calipari feels about going for lose balls. (No disrespect to you accountants out there.)

— After Kevin Stallings took a shot at UK’s schedule earlier this week, Cal fired back by saying it’s all up to the TV schedule. “If they want to play a certain day, don’t put it on TV.” He said he’d be willing to play every Thursday-Saturday if that’s what the TV schedule dictated. #CoachCalSaysShutUpCoachStallings

90 minutes.

Podcast….

— Aaron Torres, author of “The Unlikeliest Champion”, came down from Connecticut to sit in studio with Matt and the gang. We spent two hours trying figure out if he was born on a Friday or a Saturday. Have a listen…

    With floatation devices like those, who has to worry about a ship wrecking. Am I right??

    Flopping is the worst thing about college basketball. Well, aside from the excessive TV timeouts.

    The accountant stereotype is so overplayed. Most accountants I know work harder and are more successful then any other business major to come out of Gatton.

    Maybe if Stallings and his teams weren’t underachieving choke artists they’d get picked for more Tuesday and Wednesday games like us.

    1) It should leak everywhere soon when he calls the coaches and a sore loser tells everyone.

    my coworkers would disagree with Cal on the Accountant thing. You should see how quick I am to knock someone out of the way to get to the copier first. And don’t even think about using my calculator, I’ll eat you alive!

    CPA dudes and dudettes, you’re missing the point. What you have is douchey money-grubbing and ego-stroking aggressiveness, like lawyers.

    Cal wants competitive, will-to-win, sacrifice-your-body aggressiveness, like Michael Kidd-Gilchrist.

    Nothing at all wrong with being an accountant, but I’ll bet most of them could not out-hustle a college athlete for a loose ball.

    I’m a CPA and I understand what he’s saying. We are conservative when it comes to financial reporting. Cal gets it!



  30. Skeps

    As long as Cal teaches his players to “attack, attack, attack”, the charges will keep on happening. How about shooting some 3’s to open the lane up?

    I dunno ’bout you all, but if I see Terrence running down the lane and I’m guarding the front of the Charge/block arc, I’ll probably do what my name indicates!



  35. Al's IndiCats

    I want Willis for the plain and simple fact Looserville wants him. And if he turns out to be a better than average player, that’ll be a bonus!

    The substantial increase of offensive fouls called seem to be somewhat of an equalizer to the Dribble Drive Motion Offense Calipari likes to run. SEC officials have realized that calling numerous charges against UK is an effective way to keep games close. Especially effective when Kentucky plays on the road.

    Those are someone’s daughters, how can you be so disrespectful to a couple of survivors like these 2 young lasses. They will grow up to be wonderful contributers to society, unlike most of you gasbags. But, as far as judging them…I’d go 1,2. Unfortunately it appears that classy guy in the background has dibs.

    Don’t worry #61, mine and Lauren’s dad reads KSR every day and he’s probably too thrilled to see his daughter as fan of the day to even notice the comments
