    Beige sweater? Is Matt channeling his inner Mr. Rogers?

    Hopefully said sweater doesn’t have any stains from the interview. πŸ™‚

    Wow, UofL truly is the gift that keeps on giving when it comes to scandal and smut.

      the part that really sucks is they are going to get off with zero punishment for most of what they do. the ncaa is a joke. uk has been going about this all wrong. just take the louisville philosophy, cheat your ass off and deny everything even when you get caught redhanded. then complain bc that’s all anyone wants to talk about. “how could you bring this up on the day so and so died. that’s just disrespectful”
      GAAAAAHHHHH !!! it’s ridiculous

      The NCAA plays favorites and the ACC are clearly the favorites. ACC schools can do whatever they want with no consequences. If UK did what U of L, Duke, or UNC did, we would already have received punishment and it would have been severe.

      In the comments section of any article where Nick or Drew posts photos of co-eds they get ranked by at least a few dudes in order of hotness or whatever. I have no problem with people be attracted to whoever they are attracted to; it’s only human nature. The ranking of girls who are probably young enough to be people’s daughters or granddaughters kind of annoys me though. And it happens every time.

      I think the point is that in today’s work environment there is zero tolerance were the guys to openly oggle at the drug rep who has clearly dressed for male attention but it is cute and acceptable to rate the UPS and his tan legs when he is in his summer shorts. The comments from women many women at my workplace would get any man fired on the spot. No appeal. No tolerance.

      C&M, I feel your pain. Sometimes I think the Almighty played a cosmic practical joke on my by blessing me with two beautiful daughters. I often say if I met the younger version of myself I might have to punch myself in the mouth. πŸ˜‰

      Look at any famous woman on Twitter’s mentions. Creeps like Jdub is describing will go so far as to threaten to rape a woman in their online anonymity. Do you guys have some inappropriate female co-workers? Yes, definitely, but the two genders are not equivalent in their sexism and creep factor, especially not online. Not including all of the show thread regulars, who are of course above reproach.



    • J-Dub421
      11:13 am February 9, 2017 Permalink

      That is also wrong C&M. Whatever happened to keeping things to yourself? Why does everyone feel the need to comment on everyone’s appearance all the time?



    • CATandMONKEY
      11:25 am February 9, 2017 Permalink

      Agreed is wrong but not even noticed by HR because it is towards a man. I agree Realme the online creeping is ridiculous and it should be seen as equally ridiculous regardless of the gender of the perpetrator. You know, equal treatment for equal behavior of the individual regardless of whether more men engage in such behavior. Which is no doubt the case.

    Matt portrays himself on the Hey Kentucky Bachelor episode exactly like I assumed he was like in real life. Cowboy hat and all.

    I get the feeling that Donald Trump has the kind of personality that has to have a spouse who will not challenge him – like Matt mentions. However, I get the feeling that Ellen would speak her mind to Cal when she wants to. I think a lot of that has to do with the fact that when they got married, Cal was probably not wealthy and powerful (at least in coaching circles) like he is now. JMO.



    • J-Dub421
      10:51 am February 9, 2017 Permalink

      I get the impression that Ellen gets her way when she really wants something. She seems like the type to not put her foot down on something unless it’s really important. For instance, when Brad decided to go to UK, Ellen straight up told Cal he WOULD take Brad. And that was that.



    • Realme
      10:51 am February 9, 2017 Permalink

      A woman who is usually calm and easy going has some real power when the time does come to put her foot down. I think even Melania would surprise you, especially if they disagreed on something to do with young King Trump, or whatever his name is.



    • RealCatsFan
      11:13 am February 9, 2017 Permalink

      RM, I hope you’re right for Melania’s sake. And this has nothing to do with politics for me – if Trump had run as a Democrat or even an independent, I would still think he is an a-hole. It’s just his personality that rubs me the wrong way – takes himself waaaayyy too seriously. I can’t stand people like that who have no humility.



    • Realme

      Surely even his fans would agree that he’s an a-hole. πŸ™‚



    • Sentient Third Eye

      Trump is certainly an a-hole, but a lot of that is just NYC culture. He’s probably in the upper echelon of “niceness” for New Yorkers, based on my visits there.

    I miss Willie! We sure could use a rim protector like him this year.



    • RealCatsFan
      10:51 am February 9, 2017 Permalink

      Speaking along those lines, I think what made UK so good in 2012 was the fact that AD was great on defense as well as offense. For the most part, our other centers were great in one or the other, but not both. Willie could be great on defense, but limited on offense – same with Nerlens. KAT was more of an offensive player, although he upped his defensive game as the year went on. Cuz was more of an offense minded guy. Anyone agree?



    • J-Dub421
      10:55 am February 9, 2017 Permalink

      You have a point. The 2012 team was very balanced also. We had shooting – Lamb and a little bit from Wiltjer and Miller. Defense – AD, MKG, TJ, Teague, and Miller. Rebounding – AD, MKG, TJ, Miller. Plus Miller and MKG were so good at that three spot, they really created a match-up nightmare for other teams. They all worked hard and all bought in on both ends of the floor.

      Well, along the lines of UofL scandals, the news did come out yesterday that Jurich and Petrino lied about the Wakeyleaks scandal – the phone call to the Wake coach actually originated from a UofL assistant’s phone.

      Rick, the question should probably be, “what day of the week is it that Louisville HAS NOT done something else?” πŸ˜€



  12. RealCatsFan
    11:18 am February 9, 2017 Permalink

    Matt can say it all he wants, but there is no way the NCAA has the balls to take down UofL’s banner. I just don’t see it happening, no matter how justified it is. Look at the UNC fiasco and multiple Duke scandals that were swept under the rug as exhibit’s A thru C.



    • Realme
      11:21 am February 9, 2017 Permalink

      What if they give them a second year post season ban, right when they’re getting positioned for a run? Not likely, but I can dream.



    • ukjaybrat
      11:24 am February 9, 2017 Permalink

      I’m still against post season bans.
      don’t punish this years team for what happened years ago. The only punishments that make sense are:
      * Strip wins of previous teams
      * Take the banners down
      * Recruiting restrictions
      * Allow immediate transfer with no sitting out for current players
      * Suspension of coach for NEXT season

      I also wish that the NCAA would disallow self punishment because it’s not fair to those 5th year seniors that came to ul to play at a big time program and then be forced to sit out the tourney bc the school wants to lessen the blow that they deserve. Extremely dirty imo



    • Sentient Third Eye

      I agree, even though U of L clearly admitted in their 92 page rebuttal that players and recruits were provided with hookers which is most definitely an impermissible benefit.

      I just want to enjoy more punishment for UofL. Don’t expect consistency or fairness from the NCAA. I often say after not hammering UNC, they should have no authority to punish any team for any infraction.



    • RealCatsFan
      11:44 am February 9, 2017 Permalink

      Jay, I like the one year suspension of the coach, and that suspension should follow him to the next school if he leaves. However, you get into a grey area there – should this be conditional on if the coach is directly implicated in the scandal? If not, then Cal would have had to sit his first season at UK.



    • ukjaybrat
      11:54 am February 9, 2017 Permalink

      “should this be conditional on if the coach is directly implicated in the scandal?”
      yes

      While Pitino didn’t know anything was going on, he is being hit with “failure to monitor”
      So yes they could and should suspend him.

      They never tied Cal to anything at Umass or at Memphis, because in all likelihood, he *didn’t* do anything. heck there isn’t even any proof that ROSE did anything. they punished them for what they *thought* happened without any proof whatsoever.

      he’s a lot better than last year. and also those shot attempts, even the ones that don’t go in, keep the defense honest when guarding him. otherwise they will just back off and secure the paint, where he really shines.

    Missed most of what Matt was ranting about due to a work call, but hear him talking about politicians lying. He has a point – a lot of people absolutely DON’T have any shame about lying or being caught in it. It’s sad. Some say it signals the downfall of our society, and I tend to agree. Lying, cheating, and stealing are a daily occurrence, and the cult of personality with the wealthy and famous means that they are never shunned for long. Even OJ will have his worshipers when he gets released from prison.

      12:02 pm February 9, 2017 Permalink

      If they have another crappy defensive effort, especially from the guard and center position, then I would like to see Cal start Mulder, Dom, Willis, Hump, and possibly Tai. Maybe put Briscoe in the starting lineup in place of Tai to give us a little more scoring punch, and Briscoe generally plays solid defense. I realize that Willis has had his issues on defense too, so maybe start Wenyen if he had a solid effort the game before. The point I am making is that it is our freshmen guards, and to a lesser extent Bam, who are the main culprits on the “Ole” defense that is being played.
