      How about, “I wish I was a little bit taller?”

    Two Take-A-Ways from the practice last night! The two most disappointing players were Alex Poythress and Marcus Lee, they blend into the crowd and don’t dominate like veterans should! Doris Burke is not half as good as Beth Mowins!

      Here’s my takeaway: we are gonna beat the ever-loving shit out of the Tards at Rupp this year. Again. 😉

    Poythress is still hurt, you can’t take away anything negative about him yet.

      I agree Hoop Friend, Western Ky is always left out. I grew up in Western Ky and we never got any love. I live in Louisville now, so I get to see UK a lot. I feel the pain of my West Ky friends. Has never been fair to the far west fans. Ppl here think Owensboro is West KY. There is another 2 hours of KY after Owensboro!

    Dear UK,

    Please replace Dave Baker with anyone of your choosing. The man is horrible on TV and his voice makes all of the neighbors’ dogs howl in agony.

      Speak for yourself, I like Dave, and miss seeing him.

      I can’t stand him or his voice either. A man than continually talks over Oscar Combs is a loser in my book. Many times Oscar never gets to make his point when Dave is around. I do like Christi Thomas, though.

      If you have ever met him, then you would further agree with this sentiment. As a tennis player I came into contact with Mr Baker on several occessions and I can honestly say I hhave never met a more p[ompous person in my life. He walked around the courts and spoke to the staff like they were his miadservants.

    Too Soon? Not appropriate for a player to poke fun at rival?

      Big Blue Madness will be aired Friday night on SEC network from 7 to 9pm EDT which which is 4 – 6 pm Pacific time. It will probably be re-run at later time also. The 90 minute special is local stations or on on the internet. Hope this helps.

    One NBA exec on whether he thinks UK’s Skal Labissiere will be cleared by the NCAA: “absolutely not”. Seems to be consensus among NBA teams

    I’d love to watch but it’s just not worth having to see Dave bakers ugly face and listen to his stupid ” parade banter ” commentary. I’ll pass .
