      Never understood why people who hate the mean orange guy read all his tweets to get upset. It’s so easy to mute. I was looking at my muted accounts last night, because once the election is settled I can probably unmute some sports friends, and the highlights were every politician and Joe Lunardi, lol.

    What? Matt’s gonna hype up the team before the season starts?

      Sooo, Matt thinks the 2015 team without Poythress was better than the 2012 team? Hmmm.

      10:36 am November 6, 2020 Permalink

      It has taken my entire life up to sometime this year, but I’m finally done believing pre-season hype for any of my favorite sports teams.

      Same Clutch. I believe we are stacked with talent, but that is not enough to predict a special season. Again.

      Pretty sure I just got moderated for calling a certain team s t u p i d for beating us in 2015 when trying to reply to RG.



    • runningunnin.454
      10:44 am November 6, 2020 Permalink

      I am convinced that the 2015 team would have won the title, had Poythress not been hurt. Alas.



    • ClutchCargo
      10:48 am November 6, 2020 Permalink

      Should have won it even without him. If even one of a few things had gone our way vs Wisconsin, it surely would have happened.

      You mean when Cal tried to kill the clock with five minutes left, and a four point lead?



    • chris gettelfinger is not walking through that door
      11:18 am November 6, 2020 Permalink

      You are correct on all points RG. His clock killing kills me. Similar to Stoops at the end of first halfs.



    • ClutchCargo
      11:31 am November 6, 2020 Permalink

      That and shot clock violation that wasn’t called, not getting the ball to KAT enough, etc. A lot of it was self-inflicted.



    • chris gettelfinger is not walking through that door
      11:40 am November 6, 2020 Permalink

      The still image of that shot clock violation is burned in my brain man. The ball not even being close to leaving his hand yet and the clock at zero and/or the light is red.

      I will be on my deathbed complaining about that game. Not over it 1%.

    These guys are really, really building up our basketball team for this season. Very similar to how they did the football team heading into Auburn.



    • Realme

      Matt does this every year. He just denies that he did it for the teams that weren’t that good. As others have pointed out, firing up KSR nation about an upcoming season is good for the bottom line.



    • runningunnin.454
      10:49 am November 6, 2020 Permalink

      Have to admit I’m fired up about this team; just hope we get to play the games.



    • ClutchCargo
      10:53 am November 6, 2020 Permalink

      I’m trying to not have expectations, but I’m definitely optimistic about this team. We just have to hope the freshmen are as good as advertised.

      The other day, someone commented on our new commit (I forget his name…don’t @ me) that has the 7 foot long arms. The player was standing beside Jai. Anyway, one comment was “He’s awfully skinny” or some such. Someone replied “Yeah, Jai needs to hit the weights”. I’m sorry but that made me lol.

      No, I was actually trying to give him a little credit for not acting like everyone else in the world agrees with him.

      You mean he didn’t actually say “Who listens to The Beatles???” like he’s done with so many other popular shows, bands, etc.?

      Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha. Praying for God to make your politician win is like praying for your sports team to win. It’s like you’re too self centered to remember that God loves the other team equally.

      Well, Trump believes in protecting religious freedoms whereas many on the other side do not. However, I don’t know much about her, except…

      Do you guys not know who her husband is? She’s married to…

      Jonathan Cain of Journey.



    • RealCatsFan
      11:30 am November 6, 2020 Permalink

      Didn’t mean for it to turn into something political, but I guess I should have known better. The religious freedoms issue is a thorny one – on the one hand our nation was indeed founded by people who were largely Christian, and our currency certainly does say “In God We Trust”, but on the other hand our constitution guarantees freedom of religion – all religion, including the right to not worship. And a key part of it is separation of church and state. So I certainly don’t think that prayer of any kind should be disallowed, but it should not be required either. I’m a Christian, but I certainly appreciate the right of Americans who were raised differently than me to worship in whatever creed they choose.

      cg, I just read that about her. Interesting. Like I said, I didn’t know anything about her, but I thought the meme of her chanting with the music and the dancing cat was pretty funny.

      RCF, yes we have freedom of religion, but Obama was forcing pro-life people/organizations to fund things they had moral problems with, even nuns. That’s not freedom of religion. Just my 2 cents.

      Autoplay is so irritating, especially when you scroll down on the page and it jumps to “pic in pic” and keeps playing when you didn’t realize it had started in the first place.

    BTW, I’m sorry again I was so salty yesterday. I’m a little better today. Part of it was some work stuff getting to me a little bit, but also the election, and hear me out on this.

    You all may remember that I work for a private university that is also my “alma tomater” as some like to say it. Well, if Biden wins, the “free college for all” will probably kill my employer/alma mater and I’ll be looking for work. That’s not a good feeling. I’m not 25 years old.

      Free PUBLIC college for everybody that is (at least that’s what I understand). The only way that wouldn’t kill us is if the Rs could force some kind of compromise where people can get at least some of that for going to a private school. I dunno.

      If they botch the public option as some predict, people will still seek out private education. As was said above, with the level of gridlock in Washington these days, I would not worry too much about anything groundshaking to take place.
