Mississippi State plans to double team the hell out of Julius Randle

Colin Borchert and his tattoo sleeve are in for a long night tonight against Kentucky. Borchert has the assignment of defending Julius Randle, something no one deserves, and he knows it’ll take more than just him. Borchert said the biggest thing Mississippi State head coach Rick Ray is saying this week is to help out on defense, especially with Randle. They plan to double team him every time he touches the ball, as expected.

Sophomore wing Fred Thomas is confident, probably because he isn’t matched up with Randle. He said he feels like Mississippi State is a lot more mature from when they visited Rupp a year ago and he believes the Bulldogs can get a win tonight if they all play together.

“I feel like we ready for this game,” said Thomas.

Um, yeah. Good luck with that, fellas.

    No point in keeping their gameplan secret, if that’s the case.

    Because it’s soooooo cool to do exactly what every other athlete does in order to “express yourself.”

      I have been trying to get one of my kids to go to medical school and specialize in dermatology to practice tattoo removal. It is going to be an absolute gold mine in about 15 years.

      The comments to that article are pretty hilarious – on a national stage, all the bird fans are out there defending him, while sports fans across the nation are mocking them and laughing at them. My favorite comment: “LOUISVILLE: Where morals go to die…”

    LOL. Apparently RIck Pitino does develop his star recruits for basketball. Happen to run by this little beauty, looked him up on Rivals, was a 5* the #30 ranked recruit in the country.

      Rick hasn’t developed anybody since 1997. I don’t know how anybody can say that he has with a straight face.

    Hey–my comment was deleted for being politically incorrect. Truth be damned!

    Shame on you, KSR.

    Oh, there is a fresh approach. “Let’s double team Randle” – because it worked so well for all the other teams that tried it…

      They have to, if they go one on one with Randle he goes for 50.
