    Let’s give Patrick Patterson some love. He is currently ranked #6 for 3 point % at 46.9%. Who would have thought he would have developed that portion of his game so well?

    I really just can’t figure out any scenario where UL pulls off a win on Saturday…Trez is a great player(bit of a mouthy punk, if you ask me), but I don’t see any way he is effective offensively. And I see a 3rd foul early in the second half, possible before halftime.

    Watched the entire UCLA game with my jaw hanging….UNBELIEVABLE!!!

    Someone tell me why UL fans can’t even discuss their own team without mentioning UK. I could care less about them but one day of the year. I have to stop reading my friends’ feed. How can your own player get into a fight and your coach yell at fans and all you can talk about is Cousins, Cal is a cheater, and poking fun of our fans.

    I was at Diddle Saturday and, unfortunately, my tickets were in the U of L fan allotment. Considering the the amount of exuberance and trash-talking I heard from those people toward WKU fans following a 9-point win over a mid-level C-USA team, you would’ve thought they had just won the ACC Tournament.

    The thing with Harrell on Saturday is that I can’t figure out why he freaked out and threw the punch in the first place…. It looked like he flipped his lid over nothing. Usually there is some sort of aggravating factor when a guy loses his cool like that, but I really didn’t see any during the WKU game.



    • Crushgroove
      10:50 am December 22, 2014 Permalink

      Did you see his post-game interview a couple games back where he lambasted his own teammates for not having any energy or heart? I think he knows he made a poor choice in schools, is aware that he IS the talent on that team and he’s not mentally stable enough to internalize and/or cope with that information. Makes him volatile. That’s what makes him dangerous.



    • bigbluecoop
      10:53 am December 22, 2014 Permalink

      It was nothing. Everyone scrambling for a loose ball and he flips out. I’ve lost my temper while playing sports, but I never even considered punching someone.



    • J-Dub421
      11:06 am December 22, 2014 Permalink

      I did not see his interview. I just can’t remember seeing a player flip out over nothing like that before, in college or the NBA. I have watched a lot of basketball in my life and I can’t remember seeing anything like that. Harrell went from 0 to completely out of control in an instant, over nothing. He threw a punch, accidentally elbowed a ref, and threw one of his own teammates to the floor, over nothing???

      I just went a read that Louisville fan’s twitter that was talking smack about Matt Jones, and he and other fans are trying to say that Harrell was punched in the junk during the scramble for the ball. He has video which shows nothing. If he got punched, I can’t see it. It looked more like Harrell almost kicked the kid in the face to me.

    Don’t be concerned about UofL. I have no concerns at all for the game against Louisville. Yes it’s at their place but here is why you shouldn’t be worried:

    1)This isn’t the Louisville of the 3 past years. There is no Knowles, Russ Smith, Mike Marra, Luke Hancock, or Kyle Curic. There is no one on their team that consistently make shots from the perimeter. They are the worst 3pt shooting team in the nation and you just aren’t going to beat UK in the paint.

    2) Louisville wants to press and speed the game up. That’s not the formula to beat us…The last thing I want to do to UK is run…UK has more talent, more athleticism, and more quality depth.

    3) They have 21 feet of suck to support Harrell. WMathiang and Akoy are just garbage. They give you a decent defensive presence but they essentially play a man down on offense. The Egyptian have some offense, but is a huge liability defensively.

    IMO UK leads by 5-10 at half and win by 15-18. Louisville is no where near as good as their record suggests.

    People Seem to forget that last year we basically spotted them something like 15 to 18 points…and still won. Russ Smith and Luke Hancock combined for 43pts and last time I checked, they are not walking through that door. UofL has no outside shooters this year, and virtually no center. Dakari and KAT will have a field day (remember Dakari had 15pts 8 reb).

    • RealCatsFan
      11:31 am December 22, 2014 Permalink

      IMO, Okafor is a much better player than Harrell. He would eat him up on offense. Okafor has footwork and moves that Harrell could only dream about. Harrell is good for putback dunks and hanging on the rim, but he is deficient on creating his own shot and driving to the basket.



    • RexRox
      2:21 pm December 22, 2014 Permalink

      What is the Over/Under for the number of players on the floor for Saturday’s game who are drafted ahead of Harrell? Let’s start it out at 3 1/2. WCS and KAT for sure. Then you have the possibles such as the twins, Trey and Dakari.

    I was in Florida going through a toll- well they have the easy pass on the interstate and if you want to pay you have to pull off to the side. My buddy from Louisville just drives past where you have to pay. I ask him if he was going to pay and he says you don’t have to if it’s not on the road. I got a bill for 200.00 because he didn’t pay the toll. Maybe Louisville people just don’t know how tolls work?

    The University of Louisville who basically won a championship on ass-grabbing and hacking people are now complaining about rough play. The same team that came at Cousins several years ago with overly rough play. They have the most warped self awareness of any fan base in the country. I hope we lay it on them….the only thing that disappointed me about UCLA…I wish it would have been Loserville!

      They’re still whining about Cousins, and our football team this year, and Ritchie Farmer, and Michael Porter, etc. As if U of L hasn’t become second chance university (by second I mean 6th or 7th). Every school has some skeletons in their closet. It annoys me when Louisville, of all places, tries to act like the morality police.
