Willie isn’t holding back on Twitter

    He certainly has a way with the fans. Maybe if he wasn’t toppling over with exhaustion after playing for 5 minutes he wouldn’t be told he sucks.

    Truth is if you didn’t suck no one would have told you so…WCS should have had 30 pts and 20 rebounds last night…he was six or eight inches taller than anyone else out there…

    And it is dumb @ss UK fans like the 1,2,3 and the idiots on twitter who give the whole fan base bad names. Idiots. Cauley shouldn’t have tweeted that but no one should be commenting on an 18-19 yr old kid like that.

    Agree with #5. The difficult thing with social media though is are these UK fans or trolls. I’d say it’s a mixture of both. While we do have a large % of great, loyal, and educated fans we also have an abundance of idiots just like every other fan base. However, say each fan base is 20% idiot, ours is magnified as we have so many more fans.

    It’s just a bunch of kids playing basketball. People need to move on and act like they have some sense. Real fans can accept a bad year and look forward to the future, not dwell in the past. I was just kind of glad we were put out of our misery last night! I hope for the best for all these kids, be that here or NBA or whatever. Go Big Blue!

    11:06 am March 20, 2013 Permalink

    The real puzzler for me is why an actual UK fan would feel the need to contact these players on their twitter to tell them they suck. Everyone knows where we are at right now without morons taking out their frustrations on these kids. I don’t feel sorry for you IDIOTS because I wish you would pick another team to root for. I know most are imposters but some aren’t, and that’s just sad and pathetic. As I always say, let Cal handle it. It will sort itself out. Oh and if you have to say publicly some of the nasty things I’ve been hearing you really need to examine your life lol. As in Get one.

    I like WCS; however, when playing for any big name school (UK, Duke, Kansas, NC, etc), dealing with the small portion of unrealistic/fair-weather fans is par for the course. This is partly what Cal means when he says, “UK is not for everyone”. While I agree that “fans” need to back off with some of these comments, I also feel the players need to understand that, going forward in their BBall careeers, this is jus how it’s gonna be. You will never rid the world of a$$holes.

    No, the truth is that he’s a teenager who is new to basketball, and after dedicating his life for the past 8 months to a program we all care about, all anyone wants to do is harass him online.

    I say we show some respect; it’s not like any of us have suited up for Kentucky basketball and been thrust into the limelight after being projected as a bench warmer.

    BBN’s flamers and trolls are far more embarrassing than a first round NIT loss could ever be.

    Support is not telling a player who plays poorly that everything was just golden…Cal supports the team and sure enough tells them when they suck. True fans are truthful to the players and don’t just suck up to their egos…truth is WCS did suck last night…he should have dominated. Having criticism doesn’t mean you are a true fan. It means that you ARE a true fan and that you refuse to accept mediocrity. Posers who suck up to these players that we all tried to watch last night are the ones who were OK with the state of the football team.

    Some fans are disgraceful. Sometimes we forget they are 18 year old kids. Be a fan, be passionate but don’t harrass them. If your a true fan, you stand by them no matter what.

    20- how about you’re an idiot. Why even contact the player at all??? You think he doesn’t know how he played last night? You have to tell him? Lol. I swear. Lets piss him off and push him out the door? You’re a moron sir! A MORON!!!!!!!

    Perfect quote to a perfectly horrible UK basketball season. Leaves no doubt in my mind why this team stunk. I seriously doubt anyone in the BBN will shed a tear to whatever any of them do in the offseason. Keep Polson, Hood and your walk ons.

    Every fan base has idiots, and with twitter your going to get a lot more! Why doesn’t he acknowledge the true UK fans instead of giving the “so” called UK fans props by retweeting their tweets? Makes no sense Willie! If you are going to use twitter then you need to expect some negativity, but focus on the good tweets and don’t read the bad ones and they will eventually go away. Coach cal needs to make these kids take a class explaining the pros and cons to social media.

    While I don’t agree with those posting negative tweets about Willie, him posting this crap is ASKING for negative things to be posted. Idk Willie, maybe you need to get better…why is that so hard to understand? You think it’s bad now, wait till you’re a ‘pro’. I hope he comes back…to work on his game, AND his maturity.

    The world would be a better place if all big time athletes were allowed to be themselves and voice their thoughts a la Charles Barkley instead of having to be politicians and say the right things all the time. Too bad all you irrational fans wouldn’t be able to handle it because you think you’re owed something.



  34. RealCatsFan
    11:18 am March 20, 2013 Permalink

    Folks, sit back and think for a moment what demographic makes the most use of social media like Twitter – kids, right? Willie needs to realize that most of these comments are coming from immature middle school, HS, and perhaps even college kids – and probably a fair number of them are from rival fan bases. Doesn’t make it right, but put it in perspective, Willie. The majority of the UK fans like having you on the team and can see the potential. Shut out all the noise and focus on your game and your studies. The rest will take care of itself. Don’t sacrifice the big picture for the short gain.



  35. TrueBlue

    Hey Willie,

    Don’t listen to those that say that buddy. The only basketball most of them played in their whole life is in their backyard or at a park schooling 9 year olds. If you decide to come back the REAL fans will support you no matter what. Good luck!

    I would never contact any player…however pretending that last night’s game and the team’s performance didn’t happen isn’t the answer either. I don’t feel like anyone should contact an 18 year old young man and tell them that they suck…it’s just not the right thing to do…but pretending like he didn’t suck last night isn’t either. If you’re willing to accept mediocrity then that’s what you’ll be left with. That’s my point…I don’t think anyone should contact these kids and fans that do aren’t doing their part to be a good fan…but at the same time some of these players aren’t holding up their end of the bargain either. Also, namecalling is so childish. Get a grip.

    These young men should not get discouraged about the past. Just work hard for future success. Most uk fans are great people who love the players, and understand you cannot win every year. There are always a few that are not so understanding, but this is life. As far as Willie goes, he made great strides this year, you just need another year to really be a great player. I believe I speak for the majority of the BBN when I say we love the players, we love the coaches, we love KENTUCKY! Go BIG BLUE!!!

Stop abusing these players and get on with it.

If you can’t do that to the best of your ability, or put forth your best effort, then you don’t deserve to be here, you certainly don’t deserve the FREE college education, and last but not least, you donz.t deserve to wear the wrd KENTUCKY across your chest!!!

    Willie made great strides this year. He’s only going to get MUCH better. He’s only 19. The delusional part of the fan base has forgotten the normal expectations for Freshman contribution thanks to some super stars of recent years. Even 5 years ago we would’ve been excited for how much he was able to contribute and grow. UK fans more than anything needed a humbling reality check. I just hope we’re able to benefit from Willie’s improvement next year because it’s going to be awesome. If not, at least he’ll be taking care of his family and hopefully thinking fondly of UK despite some people’s efforts to ruin that for him.

    He’s a freshman so expecting some kind of dominating performance from him vs anyone is a bit ridiculous. Can he have one? Sure but for us to expect it? Nah….dude wasn’t supposed to be a significant contributor this season.

    Also, its not just UK fans tweeting at him. Might be opposing fans posing as UK fans too.

    Here’s a solution if all these players are so sad (WCS and Harrow especially)……they should just all leave. Teach us all a lesson about what a-holes we are by going pro and rubbing your money in our faces or by transferring and helping a more appreciative fan base win a title. Try that.

    44, I coach girl’s volleyball. Yes, it’s not in the same universe as college basketball, but I see a lot of the same dynamics of athletes that are competing for college scholarships. I have seen many times a talented athlete who works her way to a college scholarship, only to turn it down after a year or two just because she wants to live a normal life as a normal college student. Yes, it is a great gift to these kids to have these opportunities, but for an 18 year old kid, there is a lot of work and a lot of pressure on them. You literally don’t have 30 minutes in a day to yourself most of the time. Yep, they have an opportunity that few of us could dream of, but with that opportunity comes big time responsibility and big time scrutiny. Not every 18-YO is mature enough to handle that.

    Cut Willie a little slack. It’s an emotional time for all of these kids. They didn’t want this to happen. Let them learn from it and move on.

    It really amazes me at how immature a lot of the BBN can be… This team was a bit of a let down, but only because of last years success. Every years can’t be filled with amazing one-and-dones… This team was really young and should develop into something special for next season with the talent that is coming to Lexington…

    It is wrong for any person to sit behind a computer screen and tell a college freshman that he sucks. People need to grow up and I’m sure some of these posters are pretending to be UK fans.

    We all know the season wasn’t our favorite but we won a National Championship, lost our top six players from that team and lost our best player on this team. I don’t know how people can act so pissed off, I’m still on a high from last year and watching Bluegrass Kingdom! Now I’m excited about Stoops and next I’ll be excited about watching the twins play next year!

    Relax, take a chill pill and enjoy the fact that you don’t live in Kansas! Keeneland is coming! Summer dresses in the sun! Smiles everyone, smiles! Joker is gone too!

    Almost all of you are off base. It’s dumb for Willie to make comments like this, it’s dumb for fans to reach out and bash him and it’s also dumb for fans to stroke his ego.

    He has been average in an average year. He has a LONG way to go. That’s fine, but let’s not act like he’s NN or AD either. Again, this is fine…but when you lash out against the “fans” that lash out are you, you are pretty much doing the same thing that you are complaining about.

WCS plays like a project and talks like Lebron.

    I am a bleed blue UK fan but the one thing I cant stand from the players is arrogance. Anyone who says why arent you playing D1 ball…well first of all not everyone is 6ft – 7ft tall. When you are 7ft you have a gift…even Jared Carter, Perry Stevenson knew what their ”niche” was in UK ball… WSC was were to shine and thats it. He was to be Nerlens’ shadow and now he’s in spotlight he is taking in all the extra love. From day one he has been showboating around lexington thinking he is better than he is when he has yet to prove himself on or off the court.
    Kid finally humbled himself. Everytime he played a stronger, more talented center, he would come out with an excuse postgame instead of saying he got beat. Its plain and simple, when you are outmatched then you have to learn and do it better next time around. When you have a foot height and 2foot reach advantage over everyone on the court, then you should put up big numbers in a game like last night. WSC is not NBA material and would be one and done. Does he have the mental toughness? We dont know but we do know hes not physically ready for the NBA. Anything he says on Twitter now will danger his future draft prospecting career. It would be best for him to quiet down if he was capable of humbling his ego.

    Man, if they got a dollar for each time being told he sucked, I need to hit Ryan Harrow up for a loan!

    To everyone defending Willie’s whiny conduct….let me ask you this. If someone told Michael Kidd-Gilchrist that he sucked, would MKG go to twitter and whine about it and try to garner sympathy from his followers? Of course not. And this is why MKG will be successful at everything he tries in life. And why WCS will be playing in Europe by 2016.

    WCS got four rebounds against a team of 6’5″ high school guys. He is a pretty boy hipster who should be reading poetry at the coffee shop but happens to be 18 feet tall. Nope, suck is the word.

    I find this topic very interesting. On one hand I do think it’s sad to trash an 18 year old. On the other hand, what’s wrong with calling it like you see it as long as you do it without being vulgar or threatening. Is it alright to tell an 18 year old he stinks at math if he failed the class? I consider myself a “true” Cat fan and have no problem saying to WCS that he played terrible last night. If that bothers him, it’s probably because it’s true!

    how many of you guys enjoyed being hit with being told you suck in mass. How many of you would like it even better if the person doing did it was not doing it face to face. Lets drive all our talent away, thats the way to win….idiots

    The ugly side of our fan base seems to feel justified today in its unfiltered comments. Just one question, if this was your 18 year-old son or the kid next-door, would you address him this way? Why would you think comments of this nature would be constructive? Such harsh criticism says more about the critic than the subject of the criticism.

    “And it is dumb @ss UK fans like the 1,2,3 and the idiots on twitter who give the whole fan base bad names. Idiots. Cauley shouldn’t have tweeted that but no one should be commenting on an 18-19 yr old kid like that.”

    UK has millions, literally millions of fans and a small percentage of them say stupid things; always have and always will. The only criteria for being a fan is you have to be able to fog a mirror. There are no tryouts or admissions requirements, so we get some stupid ones in the mix. But did he forget about the 20,000 plus that were in Nashville for the Vandy game, giving up their time and money and supported the team cheering them on? did he forget about Texas A&M game having as many or more UK fans than A&M fans, as well as many others? If you can’t handle the amount of criticism versus support you get at UK you are really going to struggle in the NBA when you are getting paid to play and its your job; especially in some cities. The fans and press alike will rip you apart and you won’t get the level of support you get here.

    All of us are not telling them that. A VERY SMALL percentage are and it doesn’t take a Phd to figure that out.

    In the future, I hope Calipari institutes some kind of social media ban. WCS was always on twitter like, 5 minutes after losses. He would get into fights with obvious trolls. Put a stop to it! They can live in a little UK basketball bubble until they prove they’re mature enough to deal with social media.

    I love evryone calling these men kids. They came to Kentucky as a buisiness decision, and if you sucked at your job, what would your boss do? Would he tell you it’s okay, try harder? No he’d rip your a$$ and possibly fire you.

    Willie should post these things. They are aimed at the morons out there who watch these kids play and criticize them over social media. If you dont set foot on the floor at tip off and do better then you should shove your twitter account up your a**. No one will want to play here if they have to cancel their twitter account after signing. People should grow up and keep their opinion of these kids off the record. They are trying harder than you ever did. If not then post your picture in your UK jersey playing forty minutes in Rupp.

    UK fans expect perfection from their players despite most fans being overweight and many on welfare.

    I wish fans were less critical. If you want to criticize someone like WCS, walk up to them on the street and make your feelings known. Stop being so cowardly while you criticize others.

    If fans had the talent that Willie does the state economy would be much better than it is.

    Don’t listen to other people’s negative vibes Willie, you need to believe in yourself. This was part of the problem with this team this year. Get off the internet and do your homework.

    Strangely he’s one of the few on the team that doesn’t suck. I think someone takes a chance on him in the first round. He’s very athletic for his size and they can easily fix his shot. He has a smooth stroke but something isn’t working right. That can be fixed.
