    Gonna be a zebra controlled game again

      I can’t believe college officials allow so many travels & walks. I counted 3 on one possession for Arkansas

    If we play our best and they play their best, we win..

      True. But when do we ever play “our best” lol kid grabbed Hagans jersey right in front of ref & pulled him to the ground but still no call

      Usually are pretty focused after a loss. And that normally translates to better play. Refs are still bad ColCatFan..

    Relax. We are playing much more organized. Gonna be fine.

      We were up 10 @ half on South Carolina brotha. You can never relax with this team

    Wasn’t that a flop?



    • ColoradoCatFan88

      I couldn’t tell. Man Hagans really frustrates me when he makes a good drive & then completely blows the layup or bunny shot. We are at our worst when he’s trying to be a scorer. He needs to worry about taking care of the ball & setting up his teammates with open shots. If he’s open of course I don’t mind him shooting, but when he’s forcing the issue we’re terrible

    Atta boy Keion!!!

      I like to see Johnny attacking and hitting shots. Great follow up by Brooks! That was definitely a flop, my goodness

    We went from a top 5 free throw shooting team in the country, to mediocre these past few games. What’s going on with that!? Anyway, I’m happy to be up 9

      My thoughts exactly. It’s all mental though. Juzang playing with confidence today. I’m with you. I’d like to see him drive to the basket and get to the foul line more.



    • DelrayCat

      Law of averages and mid-season mental fatigue. But they are a 75-80% team and will hit them when it matters later in the year imo.



    • ColoradoCatFan88

      You sure about that? Free throws are always the reason a Calipari team loses in the tournament.. I hope you’re right though

    Wow…. Got lucky there at the very end, but good first half

    We still need something out of EJ. Not giving up on the kid.



    • ColoradoCatFan88
      5:15 pm January 18, 2020 Permalink

      Ej is unfortunately the biggest bust & most disappointing player Kentucky has ever had. I hate to give up on a kid, but he doesn’t make it easy to cheer for him



    • EdC
      5:48 pm January 18, 2020 Permalink

      Or give up on him and give Brooks more of a chance. Brooks has had a far better game in far fewer minutes.

    Is Arkansas really that soft where they get touched they fall down. Where in the hell is the flop



  10. ColoradoCatFan88
    5:18 pm January 18, 2020 Permalink

    5 fouls on us, 0 on them in the first 4 minutes of the 2nd half. Unbelievable



  11. ColoradoCatFan88
    5:22 pm January 18, 2020 Permalink

    7 fouls on us in 5 minutes! That’s not even possible



  12. ColoradoCatFan88
    5:24 pm January 18, 2020 Permalink

    Omg we make the most careless passes ever!



  13. ColoradoCatFan88
    5:25 pm January 18, 2020 Permalink

    This is the absolute worst lineup to have in! What’re you doing Cal!?!???



  14. Thetruthshallsetbennyfree

    People don’t want us to complain about the refs, how about the refs don’t cheat in the exact same way in back to back games.



    • ColoradoCatFan88
      5:27 pm January 18, 2020 Permalink

      Amen. I hate bitching about the refs every game, but to give us 7 fouls in 5 minutes to begin the 2nd half to Arkansas’ 1 is pretty obvious there’s an agenda against us. It ruins the fame for everyone involved



  15. KentuckyRob

    And here we go again folks



    • ColoradoCatFan88

      Wtf is wrong with SEC officials!? Why are they the worst and most biased in the country!?



  16. ColoradoCatFan88
    5:35 pm January 18, 2020 Permalink

    Calipari is the worst coach at using his timeouts when the team desperately needs one.. my god!



  17. KentuckyRob
    5:36 pm January 18, 2020 Permalink

    Outplayed and outhustled. Smh



  18. ColoradoCatFan88

    Ej is the dumbest player I’ve ever seen. He does absolutely nothing right! Can’t even set a damn screen without fouling



    • KentuckyRob
      5:38 pm January 18, 2020 Permalink

      Yep No basketball IQ whatsoever. Zero



    • EdC
      5:46 pm January 18, 2020 Permalink

      At least he finally fouled out so we can see if somebody else can put up a better stat line than 2 rebounds and 1 point.

    Cal quits on his team.



    • ColoradoCatFan88
      5:40 pm January 18, 2020 Permalink

      Or maybe he’s just sick of his team getting screwed by the refs!!! This is the second game in a row we’ve been blatantly f*cked by the officiating



    • Thetruthshallsetbennyfree
      5:41 pm January 18, 2020 Permalink

      Cal was fighting the cheapness of the refs and the cowards ejected him rather than man up and fix themselves.



    • Bluehender
      5:42 pm January 18, 2020 Permalink

      More likely what ColCatFan said..



    • zoupman
      6:32 pm January 18, 2020 Permalink

      Cal was taking up for his team. Man is a great coach.

    Thank God for Richards

      He’s our unsung hero this season



  21. ColoradoCatFan88

    The zone is working!!! Hope Cal is watching from the locker room lol



    • EdC
      5:52 pm January 18, 2020 Permalink

      His ego would never let him admit it. Meanwhile the assistants go straight to it as soon as they have the ability to.



    • ColoradoCatFan88
      5:53 pm January 18, 2020 Permalink

      Yea I thought that was funny too. Shows just how stubborn & prideful Cal really is. We’ve gone on a 12-0 run since going to it & they haven’t scored a point



    • spincr4hire
      5:54 pm January 18, 2020 Permalink

      No joke



  22. KentuckyRob

    Great response by the team!

    Does anybody know when Duke and Louisville play each other? I can’t really tell any time I’m watching ESPN.



    • ColoradoCatFan88
      5:55 pm January 18, 2020 Permalink

      Lol I hope loserville beats their asses down in Durham



    • KentuckyRob

      Haven’t seen or heard anything.



    • EdC
      6:06 pm January 18, 2020 Permalink

      I”m surprised they didn’t switch over to that game considering how much ESPN loves Duke.



  24. Thetruthshallsetbennyfree
    6:00 pm January 18, 2020 Permalink

    Cal has gotten himself td-up to put the fight back in his team before. Seems to have worked.



    • ColoradoCatFan88
      6:01 pm January 18, 2020 Permalink

      That, switching to the zone, or a combination of both have completely turned this game around. Either way, I’ll take the W



    • EdC
      6:03 pm January 18, 2020 Permalink

      Switching to a zone and the assistants actually running offensive plays instead of street ball under the term dribble drive.



  25. EdC
    6:07 pm January 18, 2020 Permalink

    If they call a flagrant on Quickly that is a COMPLETE travesty. He got mugged for several seconds before they got the call wrong and called it a tie up.



    • Bluehender
      6:09 pm January 18, 2020 Permalink

      Agreed



  26. Bluehender

    Anybody ANYBODY think the officials are unbiased?



  28. ColoradoCatFan88
    6:11 pm January 18, 2020 Permalink

    Referees are the only people in America who can be completely terrible at their job but not get reprimanded or disciplined. This is ridiculous



  29. EdC
    6:12 pm January 18, 2020 Permalink

    This is like the Russian Officials in the Olympics cheating the US all those years ago.



  30. ColoradoCatFan88
    6:16 pm January 18, 2020 Permalink

    These referees have to be the dumbest I’ve ever seen! Wow



    • EdC
      6:28 pm January 18, 2020 Permalink

      If there were ever any repercussions it would take a huge set to let somebody get mugged by 2 people for several seconds then call the mugee for a flagrant. They will probably get rewarded with bigger games.

    So Cal should get thrown out on the road more often.



    • spincr4hire
      6:21 pm January 18, 2020 Permalink

      Need to play zone more for sure.



    • chris gettelfinger is not walking through that door

      Yep.



    • EdC

      Preferably at the end of the 1st half if we are winning. Avoid the 2nd half slumps 🙂
