Dan Dakich did a great job calling the Kentucky-LSU game last night, no doubt. His analysis was precise and fair to both sides, with no trolling of the Big Blue Nation. I wouldn’t mind ESPN sending Dakich to another UK game if he calls it the way he did last night. Job well done, Dan.…

I know it’s probably a huge inconvenience, but Dakari Johnson, your teammate, just sent his 265-pound frame into the front row trying to recover an airball. It might be nice of one of you to, oh, ya know, go see if he’s okay and help him up. Wait… never mind, LSU’s point guard is checking…

I don’t know about you, but I woke up angry.  To me, last night’s game was ten times more disappointing than the Arkansas loss.  In Fayetteville, at least Kentucky showed some fight.  Based on last night’s performance, it’s hard to see this team winning a National Championship.  The Cats’ progression has been so erratic this…

CBSSports.com’s college basketball team updated its “Top 25 (and one)” late last night following Kentucky’s loss to LSU, and the Wildcats are notably absent from the new rankings. That’s quite the plunge from sitting at No. 13 prior to last night’s reconfiguration. Gary Parrish explains: Kentucky lost at LSU late Tuesday and now has four…

Calipari explains what went wrong in Baton Rouge

There are several reasons to be upset over the way the Wildcats played in Baton Rouge last night. Players can be called out individually for their disappointing performances, and in some cases, disappearances, but the Cats went down there as a team, they played like crap as a team, and they lost as a team.…

Friends of Big Blue Nation, that was an ugly showing we just witnessed from our University of Kentucky Wildcats. It was really, really bad. The Cats were bitten by the slow start bug again, falling down by 10 points before fans outside of the Pistol Pete Center were even able to catch the action on…

So maybe this a question that some of you will feel has an easy answer but I actually think there is a legitimate argument for either answer.  The question really boils down to what do you think makes a job hard.  Is it the expectations that come from that job?  Or is it the barriers…

It seems like every year basketball recruiting speeds up a little bit more. Most of the top prospects start receiving offers during their Freshman or Sophomore seasons, with some even holding scholarships before they ever play a high school game.
