    Cal, you have been both a great coach and recruiter in the past but you SUCK at both this year. You recruited 3 duds in Poythress, Goodwin, and Harrow. You have not coached them up one iota since beginning of year. We are the worst passing team in America. We now have no offense, no defense and no chance. We are turnover city. This is the worst performance of a UK team I have ever seen. This team is a total EMBARASSMENT for the BBN.

    Joke’s on us for even thinking this team would pull together this late in the year. No heart, no hustle, no basketball IQ, no defense = no win.

    Can’t stand to watch this anymore.

    Everyone complaining about the play today have no idea what you are talking about. This team watched their best player destroy his knee. You think that may affect their play? You think? Of course you don’t. Your complaints and bellyaching show that you are either a troll or have no idea what it takes to play competitive sports.

    Unreal…understand the loss of Noel but damn, to walk in here and get your ass handed to you by a very, very bad team is just not what I expected at all. Sure thought the guys would step up and find something within them to play and win.

    The weaknesses of this team will be on display every game…Noel hid more than I thought they had.

    First time in a very long time Cal has not had a stud point guard, that makes his system work. That will be taken care of next year and we will be back on top of the mountain. Just going to have to suffer through this year.

    #26 Grow up. We are the BBN and we know a bad team when we see it. The “trolls” that you’re trying to label are actually telling God’s honest truth, and if you don’t like it, take off the rose colored glasses and watch the game instead of trying to find silly excuses as to why this team STILL doesn’t get it after their best player goes down.

    1:50 pm February 16, 2013 Permalink

    Hardly. What are you clowns smoking. This team was NEVER….N-E-V-E-R going to be a contender. I said it from day 1. You morons were spoiled by the players in the first three years.

    Most of these guys just are NOT as basketball smart or as committed as those first three teams.

    Any moron not in BBN could see that.



  55. WTF
    1:51 pm February 16, 2013 Permalink

    #49….based on their showing this game, no…not a tourney team.

    This could finally be the beating they need to realize this sucks and looks bad on them. Not sure they have taken the season seriously since several felt this was only a one year stop before the NBA. Showings like this has to show NBA GMs something…something that would tell the story of potential.

    All I can say is WOW……. Did any one come to play? No Hart nor guts! The jump ball was a error for sure and they get a 3 out of it. Not sure why Cal didn’t question that harder before the play.Maybe they have a LSU come back in them



  59. Syrin
    1:53 pm February 16, 2013 Permalink

    I am a DIE hard UK fan. Always have been, always will be, BUT, as I said the night we lost Nerlens, I didn’t think I could watch this team the rest of the season just for my own mental health. It’s a test in frustration tolerance, and I failed.

    Any NBA scout who thinks this team without Nerlens has ANY player worthy of going in the NBA draft out to taken out back and beaten. There is NO NBA talent on this roster beyond Nerlens. I am going to turn on the golf tournament. I can’t stand to see this team get its butt kicked AND to watch it beat itself.

    I CANT TAKE IT ANYMORE! the worst team to put on a UK jersey. when noel went down we lost our heart and guts of the team. I hope none of them come back, some of their chicken sh-t play might rub off on next years team!



  62. Peterman
    1:55 pm February 16, 2013 Permalink

    Well, at least we know that no one other than Nerlens is going to declare for the draft. Next year will be Cal’s deepest team yet.



  63. 56
    1:56 pm February 16, 2013 Permalink

    56….fans are frustrated by the group….and coaches….for the lack of development. Cal put this group together and owns the outcome since he passes out the scholarships and uniforms. There has been no accountability for the lack of development. Thus, u get what u get.



  64. playersfan
    1:56 pm February 16, 2013 Permalink

    I am a UK fan, have been for 65 years, but that doesn’t mean I shouldn’t face the truth, there is not a single good div. 1 player on the floor for KY. Anybody that thinks there are three first round picks on the floor, is seeing something I haven’t seen all year. Cauley-Stein has great potential, but he is so far away. He has not been in rebound position whole game, he is swatting at ball like its a fly, and he is getting pushed all over the floor. Goodwin won’t take a good shot. Wiltjer wilted the first time someone smacked him, Poythress, is lost.



  65. Run fat boy run
    1:56 pm February 16, 2013 Permalink

    56, you are absolutely correct. I have to admit I thought we’d win 2 games in the NCAA or worse case scenario one game and out but I never dreamed we would be this bad in a very down year for SEC basketball.



  66. Mike
    1:56 pm February 16, 2013 Permalink

  69. Syrin
    1:56 pm February 16, 2013 Permalink

    Oh, and by the way, if this performance doesn’t solidify Nerlens as the #1 player in the draft, then the NBA scouts are even dumber than I imagined. Nerlens CARRIED this team on BOTH ends, and COMPLETELY covered up the total deficiencies of Harrow, Goodwin, Poythress and Wiltjer. I would bench all four of those guys for the entire game.

    I wouldn’t endure another team like this for a championship. God I hope next season is as good as advertised. Can we please show the majority of these players the exit? I don’t want their bad habits to rub off on the next group coming in. I can honestly see no benefit for some to return. Sorry, I bleed blue but this is embarrassing. Our offense resembles a grade school team. Ball movement and team defense are the worst I’ve seen. This team vs BCG’s would be a barn burner!!!

    58 – I can show you convo after convo here and on FB where fellow BBn friends tried to tell me I was an idiot for saying this team couldn’t get past the Sweet 16 even with Nerlens.

    As this season has gona along and you dumbasses have continually tried to prop up hopes of a National Championship, I have sat back quietly and SMDH.

    Well, it’s my turn to tell you to wake the eff up. Last year’s team was SPECIAL. Hell the Final 4 team from the year before was SPECIAL, it had no business getting that far.

    The Elite 8 team UNDER ACHIEVED.

    Know what this is? It’s the return of Tubby ball. This is why we need talent. Without it, you can’t win. How damned stoned are the people making those projected NBA draft boards. Nerlens is the ONLY NBA talent on this team. None of our other guys would start for ANY team ranked in the top 10.

    I can’t WAIT for Cal’s postgame show. Will he finally tell it like it is? This team is a total FAILURE and there is not 1 player on our team that should be starting. I hope UT pounds us into oblivion which they are starting to do.

    #83 – EVERYONE is rooting for this team. If they WEREN’T, there would be NO POSTS here. The passion is there. However, if you think watching this return of Tubby ball, and players whose predicted talent is far below what they actually have isn’t going to frustrate the hell out of us, then you are even dumber than your post suggests.

    We have been spoiled over the past three years by the players. They had enuf talent, heart and desire to win that Cal’s approach of “rolling the bal out” worked well in the past. But this is a different group and there appears to be no coaching or development. Bench the players that don’t play and send a message. Lose by 20 w the same under performers or 30 sending a message. A loss is a loss.

    Next year’s team TRULY has the look of a title team, but this year’s squad N-E-V-E-R did.

    Cats are sucking for sure ALMOST as bad as the officials. Again the SEC has the worst in all of college ball. Am I the only one to see that Tn. cannot guard Wiltjer at all and still he barley touches the ball. Where is the coaching Cal?

    True UK fans also are not blind. If you’re okay with this kind of performance then you probably believe this is due to players not buying in. Cal is just trying to be politically correct against saying they suck. Players first program. Would should just all agree to take it for what it is…a horribly down year. Call it a bridge season with a bridge.



  104. Zach
    2:08 pm February 16, 2013 Permalink

    im very frustrated at the effort and way we play. but im still not going to sink to the level of “worst team to ever where the jersey” or “they dont deserve to wear the blue”. I dont think the worst team in UK history would have kept pace with duke or UofL. Its just disgusting when grown men then start to publicly call out the 19 year old kids on this team.

    Win or lose I support my cats/kittens. You have to take the bad with the good. This Is a young team, give them a break. Before Calipari, freshmen were not expected to do much but know we expect them to play like junior/seniors? We are not going to dominate every year. We won the championship last year so relax and support this young team. Caulie, Archie, Alex will be much better next year and they will all be playing in the NBA one day. Go Cats.

    This could be one of the most embarassing losses ever. No way a program like Kentucky should have such a shallow bench that the loss of one player completely disorients a team like it has.

    This all falls on Calipari and his lack of ability to recruit/develop a bench. Cal lives by a feast or famine philosophy.

    And for those of you suggesting that we’re going to be 40-0 next year and hanging a banner – I remind you than your placing your hopes of 18-year-old kids who will be coming to Lexington with the same hype and hoopla as Goodwin and Poythress.

    Another question – Does Cal actually spend time scouting and getting to know these recruits? Or does he simply subscribe to the scouting services and start to drool when he sees five-stars next to a name? If he had spent time actually scouting kids like Goodwin- taking time to getting to know them – maybe the hoggish, selfish personality on display would have been detected.

    Cal must understand that you’re not just recruiting accolades – but actual people and it’s required that the coach know the personality he’s recruiting.

    The end of this season could get ugly.

    Is anyone seriously surprised by this? The only positive all year was Noel. He opened things up for anything positive that happened on the offensive side of the ball just by his mere presence and we all know he was our only defense AT ALL. This was a barely average team with him. I do not see another game we will win. They are not good basketball players,yet. Of course when you jump up and down declaring you are a players first program, as though every program in the history of the world loathed their student athletes, did nothing but use and abuse them and sustained them on nothing but bread and water, this is what can happen every couple of years. You have set up a scenario where you are literally drafting the replacements of 3 or 4 of your starting five even before the newest classes arrives. There is no pretense that they might stay. He needs to get a couple of 4 star guys who will be role guys who will play 3 or 4 yrs. This was a difficult team to watch even with Noel, but it was understandable. These guys were not the freshmen we have had since he got here. Again that is fine because it is what it is, but watching at least four guys who are in the NBA who should still be here is ridiculous and painful. Cousins was not emotionally ready to play in the NBA. Not only that he loved being on campus and being a kid. Minimum 3 years at UK were necessary for him to develop, but Cal pushed him out the door. Cousins said this himself. Teague, I honestly do not know what the hell he was thinking. Lamb and TJ should have comeback as well.

Next year will not be last year as there won’t be a lamb or jones or miller to compliment the team. So all of next years recruits come, they play, they leave for the nba. Then Another repeat year like this.

    If you just add Andrew Harrison to this team it would be much better because we simply lack any kind of PG play .

    Our centers are big but have zero offense. Dakari has a skilled offensive game.

    Poythress is talented but no motor. Marcus Lee has an incredible motor.

    Goodwin hates passing and can’t shoot. Young and Harrison can both shoot and rebound and Harrison is much less selfish

    so when practice first starts, cal talks about “we haven’t even started defense yet. we’re gonna play this first game without even practicing defense.” well that’s obvious, because this team just fouls instead of playing defense, less noel. but WTF were they practicing?!?!?!?! it def wasn’t offense!!! this is the most frustrating season i have ever watched. atleast with tubby u knew that was his style. i have no idea what cal and these guys are trying to do. it. is. terrible.

He had given you a championship and a ton of 5-star players. Tubby never won shit. He sat on the bench and coached Pitino’s players. Need I remind you how bad we sucked when they left???

    I love the Wildcats but this team was doomed from the start. We never really got into a rhythm for the season with Harrows absence and forcing Archie to change its identity, now we were getting it together and Noel goes down… People can say what you want but Marquis Teague was a real good point guard and that’s something we don’t have. I believe Cal really made a mistake by not recruiting another point guard, Ryan Harrow was never good enough to lead this team, there was a reason he didn’t start at NC State, there is also a reason Cal didnt recruit him initially and we got Brandon Knight. Everything is a struggle for our team, a point guard puts people where they need to be in order for them to be successful. I hope he transfers. Next year will be better with Andrew Harrison (polson coming off the bench). none of the freshman should leave because they all need another year of college. I haven’t given up on this season, but I have never seen the network switch games because we were getting beat so bad.

P.Patterson(junior)but he had Ramon Harris and Perry Stevenson also Then we had Jorts and Liggens and last year Daruis.. I love how ppl on here wont blame Cal for anything even though this team is aweful but tons of ppl on here and live blog blame the refs entirely for a 40 point blow out..

    That was possibly the worst game I have ever seen UK play, and I have been watching since the early 1970s. Cal is not motivating these kids. They look beaten and they never have fun. Cal needs a new approach to reach Poythress and Goodwin. These are two major talents that just look lost.

    3:20 pm February 16, 2013 Permalink

    Alex, Archie, Kyle, and Willie will benefit from having a top notch point guard… We haven’t seen how good they can be and that’s why I’m disappointed. If you look at the first episode of All Access Kentucky you will see Cal ask the asst coaches, “do we need to prepare Archie to run the point?” That question was never asked last year because even though Teague made mistakes, he was a bulldog that didn’t quit….. Note to Cal, stick to getting the #1 PG every year, no more transfers….

    To the trolls asking for Cal’s job–not going to happen morons. It shouldn’t happen and it won’t. But this team has no physical presence to it. It has aggression but it lacks the experience to know how and when to use it. It is a typical freshman team that just lost its heart and soul playing on the road vs a physical opponent that smelled blood. They will get better–probably not enough to make the NCAA’s–but the team played hard today (minus one kid I won’t call out). We will be back.

    Bad loss? yes. Reason to turn on Cal and the team? no. This team is deficient in areas. Mainly at the PG spot. Archie is not a PG…….and neither is Harrow. Lack of a good PG makes the whole team look bad. Just pass the ball around the perimeter and jack up a shot. We have struggled all year with penetration and TO’s. We were just able to keep the game within distance with Nerlens guarding the basket. He wasn’t great on the offensive end, but he kept defenses honest. Just him being in the game effected the other teams offense and what it was able to do. We are a totally new team right now. It is a new game plan for the rest of the season without Nerlens, they all have to learn a new way to try and score. It is going to be tough, we aren’t that good this year and the heart and passion just isn’t the same with this team. We have been spoiled the last couple seasons, but that is no reason to jump ship and start bad mouthing our players and questioning our coaches. Sometimes it works…………sometimes it doesn’t. We deal with it and get ready for the next game. And if you can’t………….go be a fan of some other team, I will still root for my Cats.

    336, the Live Blog is for KSR writers to act like commenters.

    Good luck with that, writers.

    Just saw on ESPN, Tennessee trounces (25) Kentucky by 30… I think I just threw up in my mouth… Well, lets forget this one and get ready for Tuesday…. Lets get behind this team, because they need us now more than ever before. we have to support them whether good or bad… GO Cats!!!



  340. Oh Yeah

    The team should have to walk home after this loss.

    Some of u people are idiots. Coach cal is the best thing to happen to UK sports. Keep up your complaining and blaming the coach and then we will have to beg someone to take this program again.
    We seen what tubby and billy g did. Keep the pressure on cal and he will get tired of this crap and go somewhere else like the NBA.

    And also, to all those who complain about Cal getting One and Dones………….well, this is what you have when you get 2-3 year players. They play like freshman. These guys will be back next year and hopefully provide some leadership and experience for the new guys.

    Even if you don’t find the answer, you might be hungry.

    341–exactly. No this isn’t our best day–but anyone who has seen more than a couple games this season saw our weaknesses before this game–and unlike having a season to fix them–or 20+ games like when Rodney Dent went down…Cal had basically 3 days. This team is going to struggle–but I for one will rise and fall with them. They wear the blue and I support them when they win or lose. Period. These guys will learn in the next few weeks not only who their friends are–they will learn to deal with adversity–and next year’s team will be that much tougher because of it.

    Hey Jerk–at least you got your tag right–like your pathetic self could do better? Did you play hs ball maybe?? Score a layup or two?? Just because you dropped $5 on a UK hat at Walmart doesn’t make you a fan. Takes real cajones to sit at your computer and take shots at guys who just endured what they did–after seeing their friend and leader go down to injury. Go support U of L or IU–I HATE fairweather fans. If you don’t want to support UK now–when people actually need your support–go support someone else. BBN DOES NOT NEED YOU

    Cal cant coach???? Are you serious??? If wall’s team didn’t have a bad shooting night then he would have 2 championships right now. U have to be kidding. Next year they are instant contenders. I bet you love watching drunk @ss Gillespie coach too. Cal is the gold standard of recruiting and a great coach. Not many set plays, so if no one is hitting shots we are doomed. Just so happens we have one shooter on this team (Wiltjer) and everyone knows it. You’ll all be back on his nuts next year. In Cal I trust and so should the rest of KY.

    Or rename it to the dead blog because it is dead. Its sucked since Beisner left. Limit it to one KSR staff person commenting, rotate them by the half or game to keep it fresh, get rid of all the tweeta by local news people, maybe have another staffer look for good fan comments to post.

    At this point the live blog is the equivalent of the other team standing under the basket and Archie charging straight at them with the ball preparing to turn it over and land on his head!

    It is not Cal’s fault, a good coach indeed and 2 championships are good enough to settle your doubts, if it is not a good shooting night for them I bet they will try harder next time, coach I trust in you.
