    I can do this
    “We sucked”
    “It’s my fault as coach”
    “I should have called a TO instead I let Green throw up some dumbass shot with 7.7 seconds left”
    “I should have started my best 5 not Richards and Diallo”
    “Where the hell was Vanderbilt?”
    “Why did I call for a double team?”
    “Let’s practice free throws”

      Don’t forget:
      “I’ll stay in the coaches box”
      “I shoulda took PJ out and calmed him when it was obvious he was rattled”

      Exactly to both of you. Cal is getting known for getting his ass handed to him in the NCAA tourney by much lesser teams. I don’t mind losing a game to a better team, but that team was no where NEAR as good as us.

      How is he getting known for getting his ass handed to him when he has more wins in the tournament than anyone and more final fours than anyone and is tied for the second most championships since he’s been to Kentucky?

      Well, when you have a team with 9 NBA players, 4 of whom get drafted in the first round, and one in the top five, and you lose to a team with maybe one second round draft pick in the elite eight, round of 32 and now the sweet sixteen, yyou suck. How many NBA players on this team? How many on K state?

      LOL, you have to be the least knowledgeable UK fan I’ve ever met. Do you think these kids aren’t freshman when they enter? Do you think everyone who gets drafted in the lottery becomes a superstar? Do you think there’s no development between high school and NBA all star? Do you not see how many games in the tournament come down to a last second shot? This isn’t a best of 5 or 7 where the best team always wins. I think you can’t be older than 15, or at least haven’t grown intellectually since that age. Again, when has ANYONE won everything with a team of only freshman, even if they were the top class? The fact that they got this far is a testament to his coaching ability.



    • syrin23

      Using LOL as an arrogant means of condescension followed up with insults is raising the intellectual white flag of surrender. You are an idiot if you think the team with the most talent lost tonight. You are an idiot if you think this team was well coached, and made adjustments to win the game. You are also an idiot if you think that a team with three players over 6’9″” on the court going against a team whose taller player was 6’2″ and NEVER looked inside is smart play calling. Cal does less with more talent than any coach I have seen. It was also true when he was at Memphis. It odesn’t matter whether they mature or not. No one on the K State team is as physically gifted as our top 8 players, yet they constantly beat us. That comes down to coaching. And you defeat your own argument when you talk about development because even Diallo said that by the end of the year, after that schedule, they weren’t freshman any more. Brad Stevens would have three titles with the talent Cal had if not more.

      No, it’s just laughing at the retarded ramblings of an idiot. So you’re saying that K-State had the most talent? No, I’m not going to try to make sense of your nonsensical screed. I’m not sure how having the most wins, most tournament wins and most final fours is doing less, but I’m good at math, unlike you. You do know that basketball coaches don’t call every play, right? This isn’t football. It’s a fluid game, where players on the court have to make decisions based on the ever changing conditions on the court. But I’m sure I’ve already lost you. That’s too much nuance for your feeble brain. Go watch a CBS sitcom and drink some warm milk. It will calm you before bed.

      You voted for Hilary ten times didn’t you? D’nags like you are happy with wins and no titles. It’s why mediocrity is accepted. I would explain what matters to you, but I ran out of crayons. You forgot to LOL me. What you are too feeble to grasp is we lose to lesser talented teams routinely due to bad coaching. IU. K. State, Wisconsin. But hey, we got wins so you are happy. Just as long at you get your crystal meth and welfare, you will be happy.

      It’s so like you to not think ahead and have enough crayons to write with. Too bad the nice nurses won’t let you use something sharp like pencils or pens, since you’d probably hurt yourself. You fail to grasp that we don’t routinely lose to anyone, at least not more than other programs. What part of most wins ans most tournament wins are you failing to grasp? What part of the best team doesn’t alweays win in a single elimination tournament do you not get? What part of most final fours can you not add up? What part of getting a team of largely freshman to the level of contenders almost every year can you not see? It’s fair weather, know nothing fans like you that give UK fans a bad name. You need to let go of the past. Why wouldn’t Cal try to get the best players every year? He’s the best coach we could hope to have. And just because all your neighbors and inbred family are meth head doesn’t mean all Kentucky fans are. There’s a world outside your holler.

    Cal AGAIN says, “I should have called time out…” YET HE NEVER DOES!!!!!!!!!

    Someone in the media needs to have the stones to ask him, WHY doesn’t he ever call a time out in a game situation?

    The main story should be 3 things.

    1) Style of game didnt allow the crowd to get into it with so many fouls, therefore rythym was not there for the Cats.
    2) FreeThrows
    3) The 2nd to last possession when they had no body taller than 6-5 amd a 6-2 guards gets a rebound between 6-9,6-6,6-5,6-11,6-8. That extende the possession and they later scores on that.



    • syrin23
      1:13 am March 23, 2018 Permalink

      Cause Knox, who slept through the NCAA tourney decided to try to take the ball away from PJ because he’s a dumb asss.



    • makeitstop
      1:50 am March 23, 2018 Permalink

      Yep. They got the rebounds bc it meant more to them. One game in the SECT we lost the offensive glass 13-1 but no one notices bc we hit a bunch of 3’s but if you can extend plays you win close games and if you can’t you lose. We were one and done on our end…

    Lot of UL trolls. You all
    Should worry about
    1) having no recruits
    2) having no coach
    3) and looming probation
    4) NIT.

    Well well well BBN. You inbred fans deserve this loss. You couldn’t even win the god awful south region that was handed to you! You thought you had a win in so called “Catlanta” but you choked! It turns out it was “Catlanta” after all in KSU’s favor lol. “BradCalthegoat” is back! Keep blocking me and I’ll keep coming back just like KSU! Now it’s time for football season and you suck at that as well!

    Cal is a joke, he thinks the fans are mouth breathers that hang on his every word. Some UK fans are starting to realize it, more will follow.
    Who’s first coach in 20 years to lose USA U19?
    Who’s had 9 or more losses in 5 of his 9 seasons at UK?
    Who’s first UK coach to get swept by Florida and Tennessee in same season?
    Who’s the coach that snapped the 3pt streak?
    Who’s the coach that will be smiling the biggest on Draft night, on a 11loss team that couldn’t make the final four on the “easiest path in NCAA tourney history?”



    • TonyMontana
      1:15 am March 23, 2018 Permalink

      STFU. Arizona, Tennessee, #1 Virgina, Xavier, Cincy, North Carolina, etc… they were all upset. Sh&t happens. It’s not like we were a #1 seed loaded with veterans. Cal is fine. Go cheer for another team. I like Cal and if he was gone you’d just be complaining that we only land 3* recruits. Yea… We should have won, but thats how it goes sometimes. Based on the season its a miracle we even made the sweet 16.

      Who’s the coach with the most wins sice the 2010 season? Who’s the coach with the most tournament wins since the 2010 season? Who’s the coach with the most final fours since 2010?

      He’s got a better win percentage than Rupp.

      Go root for Duke.



    • syrin23
      1:17 am March 23, 2018 Permalink

      Yep. Why go for one and dones if your record is the round of 32, elite eight and sweet sixteen. K state and Loyala are going further than us with no NBA players. Doesn’t matter if you have NBA players if they can’t shoot, make stupid plays all the time, take stupid shots, turn the ball over half your possessions, can’t shoot FT’s, and have a coach who can’t coach and admits it every time while never learning from past mistakes.

      Duke has more championships since Cal been here. 1 ship in 10 years is total failure



    • syrin23
      1:34 am March 23, 2018 Permalink

      Especially when you look at the talent he had to work with. How many titles would Brad Stevens have had with the same rosters?



    • justaguyinthebackrow
      1:42 am March 23, 2018 Permalink

      Yes, one coach out of at least 129 coaches has more championships than Cal. OMG, that’s terrible. /s Freshman, no matter how good they are, have to be developed. No number 1 class is an automatic NC. Teams get lucky. Single elimination tournaments do not guarantee the best team moves on. Go root for Duke.



    • justaguyinthebackrow
      1:44 am March 23, 2018 Permalink

      Also, Cal just finished his 9th season at UK and Brad Stevens would have won 0 championships because he wouldn’t have recruited half of these players and he’s in the NBA nad not leaving! JFC.

      Get Cal’s c*ock out of your throat and realize being young every year is Cal’s fault. We send our entire team to the draft every year rinse and repeat. No d*amn wonder we’re young uhhhhhhuuuuhhhh

      I realize it was a difficult argument to follow for a child, Kozmo, but I think you just made my point about all you bandwagon fans. And Dildo, cute name for a 13 year old, every team has rebuilding or down years. Maybe one day you’ll grow up and understand what I’m saying and all of these numbers I’m throwing around, but probably not.

    • justaguyinthebackrow

      Incase my other comment doesn’t come through: Any real UK fan would take the suggestion to root for Duke as an insult. You prove my point about you bandwagon fans.



    • syrin23
      2:23 am March 23, 2018 Permalink

      Must suck to keep losing, and by the way, when coach K gets his third title, it will only highlight Cal’s ineptitude. But hang your hat on meaningless wins. That’s what matters. Ask Wichita State.

    Let’s talk a few truths here:
    1) This team was always hit or miss. To get where we did it something to be proud of. Although disappointing because of the yellow brick road we received, some of the heavy hitters on the right side of the bracket are more consistent then we would ever be. Let this loss sting to these guys and have them come back fiery next year. It’s always the teams that lose in heartbreak which come back stronger.
    2. Let’s get this straight about Cal. My view of him wavers back and forth. Should he have called a timeout? Probably. But this was the BEST coaching job since he has come to Kentucky. By far. These guys were all ended up being limited in what we ever assumed many of them to be. There were no all one and done. These were projects which we knew ever since being down to UVU in the second half of our first game.
    3. Everyone saying “players first” and we return barely anyone is crazy talk to me. I’d bet a good chunk of money we don’t lose more than Shai, Knox, and Hami to the draft. This was our off year…we always going in fluctuations. Next year we will return our entire front court and have 3 studs coming in back court to complement Quade and Baker. We will absolutely be a top 5 team next year with NBA level guards.
    4. PJ got nervous. And that’s okay. He came in chubby and nervous. He came out a lean mean machine. He will be a star next year.
    5. See you in November. Kentucky 80. Duke 77. My score prediction.

    Go Cats

    I’m tired of celebrating players getting drafted. The university does not pay this man $8million a year to get players drafted. He gets paid to win and to win the big one. He’s had by far and away some of the best talent EVER and if it weren’t for a man named Anthony Davis he would have ZERO titles. I’m sorry but I refuse to believe that he is worth that much money. I’ll continue to support this team and coach cal but I’ve lost a lot of faith in him now.
