WSJ writer says Kentucky’s “Death Star” is “hollow inside”

locker-room

Dennis Berman, Wall Street Journal writer and lifelong Louisville fan, spent the weekend in Lexington to cover his Cards in the second and third rounds of the NCAA tournament.

After seeing his team dominate in the first two games of its seemingly imminent title run, Berman led off his account of the trip to Rupp Arena with talk of a team that isn’t even participating in this year’s tournament: the Kentucky Wildcats.

The first two sentences: “They are building a new Death Star here in Lexington. By November, it will be fully operational, a University of Kentucky basketball team deploying the planet-annihilating skills of the single greatest recruiting class in the sport’s 100-plus-year history.”

Over half of Berman’s article is about Kentucky basketball and the 2013 recruiting class, not the Louisville Cardinals, his favorite team and the tournament favorite. He gives the ol’ backhanded compliment to Calipari’s squad next season while sharing Pitino’s “We don’t play the game for the lottery draft; We play the game for Louisville” comment from Saturday.

He ends it like this: “A new Death Star is forming on the horizon. Kentucky fans will never say it. But they know: It’s hollow inside.”

Big Blue Nation disagrees.

You’d think a Louisville fan would know about being hollow inside, too. I’m sure he’s seen Louisville’s trophy case.

    “Corrections & Amplifications
    Eight title banners hang in Rupp Arena, where the University of Kentucky basketball team plays. A previous version of this article incorrectly said there are seven. “

    I’d have to say that I agree with him. These kids done come here because it’s the university of Kentucky. They come because of the coach and his connections. They come because they have to go somewhere for one year. They come because it’s a steeping stone. They don’t play for the blue and white. They don’t play for the school.

    It’s a tale as old as time. Those who cannot must redefine the greatness of others as something to be despised or scorned. They will talk about anything OTHER THAN winning, championships, or their own greatness in order to disparage the winning, championships and greatness of others. Look around college basketball and even some of the blue bloods are taking this route in reference to Kentucky. I am looking at you IU, KU and, if we are to call them blue blood, UL. As far as I can tell, it’s all just a sign that it is good to be the king and it’s good to be a part of Big Blue Nation.

    I don’t understand why some people just cant accept that John Calipari is just taking advantage of a very stupid rule. He is using his businessman like skills to assemble what the majority of basketball experts consider to be the best players year in and year out. Remove the one and done rule and Kentucky’s recruiting classes change drastically. We would return to the days of rooting for the same players for three or four years. the goal is to be the best team in the country, and with the exception of this year, that’s what Calipari has done for the last 5 or six years.

    this year he might be right ( and that is because they were so young and devoid of real leadership)- but i don’t get that feeling with the teams MIller, Patterson, liggins and others led in the recent past. There are always going to be a few “hired guns” on successful teams who care more about themselves than the institution – and Pitino wants one as much as everyone else.

People who read the Wall Street Journal don’t give a damn about UL; you don’t see a lot of people reading the WSJ in UL central fan base locations: the city jail, the projects, and barber shop.

    All I’m saying is its the coach/system not the university. If Cal was at Ohio St., Florida, South Carolina or even Minnesota then he would haul the same classes. He did it at Memphis while we were bringing garbage to the program. Kids don’t play for the name on the front it’s the name on the back that counts

    Chad Ford has an insider article on ESPN talking about 9 draft picks next season. Guess these ‘media’ types who write soap operas missed that one. Alabama football fans probably just think about the 1 year Auburn won their championship, not the 3 they won around it. Amazing these guys think they know how a fanbase feels when they’re fans of losing teams.

    This reminds me of an article written just before the UK vs. UofL game in the Final Four last year; it may have been the same author. It was written by a UofL fan in a national magazine that said that people should “feel sorry” for UK fans because they had no joy in winning. He argued that there was too much pressure to win it all during the 2012 season, so the fans couldn’t enjoy it. Conversely, of course, the author pointed out that UofL did things much better. Since UofL’s Final Four run was relatively a surprise, the UofL fans were enjoying their run in a very satisfying way–something the maniac UK fans could never do.

    It’s all the same thing: UofL fans can’t use any standard measure to show that their school/team is better than UK, so they have to rely on odd unquantifiable things. It’s like, “Oh, yeah, you beat us almost every year, have way more championships than we do, matter more than we do, and even your school is better than ours, but we are morally superior in a way that you can’t even comprehend!” It’s thinking like that lets UofL fans live with themselves.

    It’s almost comical when I hear people say that UK kids play at Kentucky and use it as a stepping stone, when louisville kids play for the name on the jersey and all that. How many of these Louisville kids could care less about the school before they signed there. I mean one of the only ky kids that actually played transferred out this year. I mean you think Siva and smith and dieng grew up Louisville fans? Chane is only there because we didn’t want him/he would get no pt on UKs team as a freshman. The only difference between the UK players who go pro, and the Louisville players who stick around because they love their school and the college experience is talent, clearly

I don’t think Smart or Stevens either one would want Minn. I think Coach O would be a good hire for them
    Coach O could recruit there and this would allow him to show his potential in case Cal was ever to leave. Hopefully Mitch has learned his lesson with Joker the HC in waiting thing doesn’t work for a coach without experience. Let him go and have success the Uk job is good enough anybodtpy but Billy D would want it!

    72) I with you. These kids are coming because they know Cal will make them millionaire’s and that fine! The odd reason they believe it is because you have coaches like K who have admitted to holding some freshmen back to get them to stay longer because he believed it was best for the kid. Cal believes in the opposite of letting them star as freshmen and letting them pick in the off season. Both ways work!
    It’s a money driven world and these kids should be going to where will help the get to the NBA the fasts anybody who thinks different is crazy. We aren’t talking about thousands of dollars but millions. For these star kids now I think the best choices are Carolina , UK, and Kansas. Seems like those 3 coaches do better for their players!

I would say he probably is one of the all time fan favorites. He hasn’t seen a kid like Nerlens who has done so much for the community out side of basketball! Nerlens deserves the community out reach award he spends a lot of time in schools or a the childern’s hospital without cameras following him.

Pitino’s jealousy and dishonesty stems from this dung as well. Remember that dung is only harmful if you put your foot in it. Higher life forms choose to ignore it and leave it to the flies.

    They never mention that the one championship Pitino won had 8 NBA draft picks on it.

    Ricky,

    Are you “prematurely” predicting your climax again. More “empty” promises…

    What do they expect Cal to do, only recruit players that are ranked 30 and below? We recruit the same guys that Coach K, Self, Pitino, Roy Williams, and any number of so called ‘elite’ coaches recruit…..only we get ’em and everybody except UK fans want to cry about it. We didn’t whine when North Carolina and Duke were stockpiling talent in the 80’s, 90’s, and 2000’s.

    You know you are great & special when these small time writers (ate up with jealously and envy) are always writing something negative about you or the program. Kentucky basketball accomplishments speak for themselves. Jealousy & envy will eat you alive.
