    WTF is up with Jones and Miller…we did get a lot of bad calls against us but also playing out of control a lot. We commited so many stupid fouls…TG for Lamb and Gilchrist.

    Those refs were eatng pancakes off tom crean’s chest at 8:00 this morning. crap calls. Second Davis foul was actually TJ. TJ isn’t helping himself either. Where is he at in this game?? How did they keep that many UK fans out of that building? I need to watch a Mexican soap opera. shit.

    #12, Is Van Harrow that Dutch Dude? Wasn’t he kicked out of Van Halen? Yeah, he aint much of a hoopster but he plays a great lead guitar.

    cry babies quit blaming the refs. the refs did not make teague miss layups and open jumpers. the refs did not make us miss most of our free throws. the refs did not make jones turnover the ball almost each time he touched it and the refs did not have Jones and Miller fail to show up. We played like crap, plain and simple. lucky to be down just 1. thank goodness for MKG and Lamb or this game would already be over. Cal needs to sit Jones as he is killing us yet does not come out of the game.

    Should we bring the walk ons in to play for Teague? He has played how many games now? Hell, he has had his chance!

    15} Davis left his feet on the pump fake and landed on Zeller, that was a foul. Davis made 2 mistakes, letting Zeller catch that low then leaving his feet. Let Zeller leave his feet then David can leave his and still block every shot. Not the refs fault, it was Davis.
    Hopefully we will pick it up and play smart basketball in the second half and we can win this by 15 or so.

    HEY CAL, you can bench Jones for his many mistakes and lack of effort. You bench others for it why not Jones? 26}I never thought Teague was good enough to be one and done. Jones is playing his way to a third year at UK. Bottom line is this game is what we get when we always rely on young players. The highs of last week and lows of this week. Just like the final 4 last year, Uconn was not better our youth cost us.

    The ONLY reason I feel so bad about this is because of all the trash Matt Jones has been spewing on the radio about how we’d win by 30 easy…keep your mouth shut until the game is over.

    Anyone with any sense at all knew a young team in a hostile environment would struggle – at least at some level. I wouldn’t feel nearly as bad about losing if you wouldn’t have been so arrogant all week making us all look more foolish now

    We fouled twice on the final possession and the refs didn’t call it. Nor did ESPN bother to show a replay to see if his foot was near the line or it was a pure 3. Probably good, but they didn’t even look.

    Missing foul shots directly lost the game, but far, far too many calls went against us. Multiple out of bounds calls went against us. Jones only had some of those turnovers because his arm got slapped. Vitale going on and on about IU getting to the line more and ignoring the fact that it’s a home game for them. Also ignoring the ball denial we had to keep Zeller from touching the ball. When he’s rooting for the other team, I get so sick of him. And that’s not even counting his praising of Knight, the biggest bully in college sports.

    IU hit big 3s, but they didn’t win that game on their own. Oh well. No perfect season. Just have to settle for the title alone.

    Refs were terrible, we were terrible, and IU wanted this one more than us. Bad execution at the end, as we should have fouled, fouled to stop the nonsense. I hope this will be a good learning experience. Terrence Jones needs to get his head in the game. If he continues this cry babying, I hope Calipari keeps him out of the lineup more. Cal did the right thing to pull him frorm the game. I’m sure he will be doing some extra running and other things to get his attitude adjusted. I sure hate to lose to Indiana.

    What cost us this game is free throw shooting and T Jones playing 28 minutes. I was asking to please bench him in the first half, you could just see he did not want to play. Guy plays 28 minutes and gets 1 rebound, with 6 turnovers and played almost no defense. WHY was he left in there. When he finally went out we make a great run and he comes back in, don’t know why, and first play his guy goes right by him for a layup. On the good side…MKG is a beast. Teague and Miller got it going in second half and Lamb played so hard all game.

    Will you all STFU??? Some crying b*tches! We lost one game on the road with a young team big whoop. I don’t care about a #1 ranking by March I hope these kids learned from this. I hope they walk away with a chip on their shoulder. T. Jones is one of my favorite players of all time but major disappointment today. Sad very sad about his effort. Major props to Lamb, Kidd-Gilchrist and Teague in the second half.

    What was up with Jones anyway. I don’t think he has ever played this bad. Makes a person wonder if he was paid to throw the game. I know he probably wasn’t but he could have at least tried and given an effort.

    Our players played their hearts out. Teague played amazing in the second half and we did a great job coming back from down being down ten multiple times. I felt horribly for our players when they were stuck on the court with a loss and hundreds of IU fans swarming them. I wanted to give miller a big hug. Not in a gay way. I don’t know what was wrong with Terrence but someone needs to get him more motivated when he gets in to those moods. I wanted to grab him and tell him to dunk on someone and stop looking depressed on the court. It’s unfortunate this couldn’t be an undefeated season but I’d rather lose to IU away than UNC at home. Good win for their program and we will bounce back and learn from this game. Support our players, though. They are the best in the nation and they are good guys who don’t need a crazy fan base always bitchin’ about who’s fault anything is.

    Reading all about IU all week is not misguided. Take your ivory tower elsewhere, #102

    The bet with the truth was only if IU won by 20.

    I’m not sure if there has been a player in UK history that infuriates me as much as Jones.

    95– If you foul the inbounds, that doesn’t do anything. They had a good 6 seconds to work with, so you can’t just try to keep them in the backcourt. We just needed to execute better.

    Can anyone make two free throws down the stretch?

    I think Terrence Jones took a nap like the one before last year’s UNC game.

    Speaking of naps this was a GREAT wakeup call for our young guys. You can come into an unranked team’s home court and lose if you’re not bringing your A Game — maybe they’ll listen to Cal more now. Better we lose to IU now than some 9 seed in the tournament.

    Good game IU.

    Another big game. Another loss. Another game where Jones disappeared.

    Jones was probably out partying with Stacy Poole last night.

    We need to lose a few games. It humbles us. There is no one reason we lost. Terrence Jones was horrible but we still had a chance. I thought we played pretty good at the end. That guy just got a great look and hit the big shot. Good for him. Not the end of the world.
    I remember when AK beat us on a last second shot last year and everyone was going nuts about firing Cal. You loser fans that will hate on Cal need to go pull for another team. I hate losing to our rivals but IU is playing pretty damn good. They have been unranked for years. I guess they are better than everyone thought. Either way we are the better team and we will learn from this.

    Why does Calipari not understand the importance of free throws??? He makes excuses for not having time to practice them more. Seriously, you never will big games without dead-eye free throw shooting.

    What did Jones do in the UNC game?

    Gillie was the star of that game.

    Jones should have gone to the draft last year. He’s only going to hurt his stock this year.

    Jones should be benched next game. Coach Cal allows his players to back talk and act like complete idiots, recall Cousins. Jones has talent but no heart. Players like Travis Ford, Jamal Mashburn, Carmon Mills, Wayne Turner and others are the ones I respect. They played with heart no matter the outcome. Jones is exactly what’s wrong with NCAA sports.

    Was Jones I’ll? Not sure why we did not foul in the last seconds.
    I think we had 2 to give. Refs let them bump slap and push us all day.

    Say what you want but this is what we get for having no experience. Why would you not call a timeout Cal? They already had their play called. Set up the defense and foul x2!!! He should of been smarter, he cant expect frosh and sophs to do it. Sick

    118, I’m not saying we should’ve fouled the inbounds, but if we guarded it that would’ve burned more clock before they could get it up the court. Though who knows, Watford could’ve hit a mid-court shot too.

    Either way it’s a good lessoned learned.

    Great effort by Teague,Lamb,Kidd-Gilchrist and Miller made some big plays when needed. The outcome of the game,as always comes back to freethrow shooting. It’s elementary.

    Looking at the positives we probly had no business being within 15 at the end and we still had a chance to win. Jones was non existent, Davis was just there so he wouldnt foul out, they were unconscious from 3, and it still took a buzzer beater and us missing free throws for them to get the win. In the end we didn’t deserve to win that one.

    Hopefully this will make us tougher and more determined. This was a great experience for this young team. We have the talent and skill just need to become a team. Should be hard to beat us in March.

    Bullshit!

    I remember Turner during quite a few games displaying that deer in the headlights look. Turner is one of my fav players ever. Quit making these guys out to be more than human.

    Jones is immature. That’s all.

    Turner didn’t do jack shit until his Junior and Senior years. He wasn’t expected to do jack. He was a back up AT MOST under Pitino and in that era. In ’99, Turner had a similar look on his face in the last game of the year as Jones had on his face all game tonight.

    Jones simply needs to pull his head out of his ass and learn to focus. Last year, I told you guys that Jones was up ALL night the night before the Final Four game. All of the fans became upset and whined and told me that I was full of shit. Jones plays like shit in these games because his dumb ass loses focus and does stupid shit like stay up til 3 AM the night before big games like this. Cal needs to have his ass on lockdown on nights before games. Practice his ass until he’s so exhausted that he can’t do shit but go to sleep the night before a game.

    IU ‘cain’t’ win ’em all.

    Neither can YOU of K.

    Take your loss like a man (not like an IU fan).

    There will be hell to pay.

    Burn that path to “Nawlin’s”.

    No prisoners, no Houses of Pain.

    Its ‘light ’em up’, burn, MARCH to that sea!

    137, yeah IU was unconscious from the 3 (9-15 60%). So was UNC (11-18 61%). Heck, so was Portland (11-23, 48% — when their season average is 32%). It’s not a fluke, we simply can’t defend the perimeter.

    Cal is a brilliant coach all in all. I mean he,s really developed a system where they have decreased the ways they can be beat to almost none. He consistantly brings us the tops in talent, brings them together as a team quickly, and no matter what they are in every game at the end with a chance to win. Look at today. Crazy hostile crowd,terribly played game on ky’s part, Jones non-existant, terrible refs but we still had the game in our hands. It still, after all of that, comes down to the same thing with all his teams, even back to Memphis, FREE THROWS. F-ing free throws. Make them run till they cant then shoot free throws until they can hit 9 out of 10 on one knee with one eye open on oxygen. Then they should be able to hang # 8. No problem !

    As much as IU outplayed UK, out hustled, and out rebounded, UK blew it. This would have been an awesome come from behind victory. Our end of game execution was awful. However, UK will be better from this b/c they will never be in an environment like that again all year. I can handle getting beat by 10-15 pts much better than giving a game away. Still like UK in FinalFour, but without good FT shooting, forget a title.

    what you kentucky fans dont understand is, it doesnt matter if you looked like a bunch of dorks losing to a sub 500 team over the last 3 years. what matters is cal gets probably 4 now, guys drafted after this season. get on the bus uk fan and quit being so selfish.

    Even though I wasn’t a fan who ran my mouth all week about blowing iu out by 20 , I have to deal with it anyway. I felt like we would be challenged in assembly and knew we could lose. Matt Jones is the reason why iu fans are running it so much. Why don’t you learn to keep your d sucker shut Matt until the game is over. This is embarrassing. Not the loss but having to eat YOUR words and those of all the ass hole BBN fans who don’t know ball like they need to in order to talk shit on this site. To IU fans…you beat us. Fair and square. Congrats. We look forward to the next game, and hopefully cal won’t take that away from the whole nation of bball fans since iu is back now and even more promising next year.
