    I apologize to Drake for all the times I have rolled my eyes at him.

      I like Drake, but I’m probably the only show thread regular who listens to hip hop.

      Is that the same as rat music?

    • J-Dub421
      10:34 am June 29, 2018 Permalink

      Rap music is part of hip hop.

      Rat is a “hair band” from the 80’s.

      Ha ha…meant Rap.

      That’s Ratt, youngun’!

      Prefer Bonnie Raitt.

    • “I knew right from the beginning,
      That you would end up winnin’,
      I knew right from the start,
      You’d put an arrow…through my heart,
      Round and round,
      With love we’ll find a way just give us time!”

    40 days?

    • Realme
      10:15 am June 29, 2018 Permalink

      Yes! Speaking of the number 40, did you see the clip from the first practice, where their huddle break is “All 40!”? Eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeehhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh! (Like I said before, I’ll temper my expectations later).

    • I hope they didn’t mean 0-40! ๐Ÿ˜›

      I think that’s impossible…no?

    People are so freaking ungrateful about all the great teams and final fours Cal has brought us.

    • J-Dub421

      For the sake of comparison, Dean Smith only won 2 titles in 36 years at UNC and is considered one of the best coaches ever.

    • runningunnin.454
      10:45 am June 29, 2018 Permalink

      Yep, Dean Smith…father of the shot clock and a first class creep.

      People don’t understand how history works anymore. How long did it take to earn the 8 NCAAT banners currently hanging in the rafters? They didn’t just happen overnight.

    • Yep, even if we win #9 this year, that’s still roughly an average of 1 every 10 years since Rupp became coach. Don’t get me started on all the near misses that would have us topping UCLA right now.

    • J-Dub421
      11:11 am June 29, 2018 Permalink

      Well, if we could have blatantly cheated with impunity for over a decade like UCLA did, we’d have a lot more titles too.

    Coach Cal gets vilified for doing next to nothing. K can do whatever he wants and is never questioned.

      I’m seriously surprised no one found a bad way to spin the puppies in his office story.

    • JTHinton
      11:28 am June 29, 2018 Permalink

      I can see the first sentence now: Cal needs to focus on going to the Final Four for the first time since 2015 instead of worrying what other teamsโ€™ fans think.

    • J-Dub421
      11:41 am June 29, 2018 Permalink

      If Cal screamed and cursed at a player’s mother and made her cry, we would NEVER hear the end of it. But K does it and it’s no big deal.

    I don’t blame Reid Travis for wanting to transfer to UK at all. We’re talking about a former McDonald’s All-American and 2 time PAC-12 first teamer who has never even gotten to play in an NCAA tournament because Stanford is not good. Reid is simply too good to keep wasting his time at Stanford.

    Well, well…I see that UL is celebrating the 5 year anniversary of the ’13 National Championship today.
    What is that phrase…de nile is not just a river.
