BTI’s Rants and Ramblings: 10 Things from this Average Fan That Need to be Said on John Higgins Fiasco

cal-sad

#1: Every single person who called that man’s business to harass him and his employees is a King Loser.  You know why you are a loser?  Because no UK player, coach, administrator, or official joined you in your pathetic campaign.  When I hear the story that Dominique Hawkins posted on Higgins’ roofing company facebook page then I will change my tune.   

#2: On that, despite what you might argue, IT IS JUST A GAME to everybody not actually playing or coaching in it.  It genuinely has zero affect on your life (unless you bet the game, in which case that’s on you).  Yes, we are passionate.  Yes, we devote time and energy to this team.  But that loss did not change our life in actuality.  It didn’t.  Your health didn’t change, your kids or partner’s health didn’t change.  You didn’t lose your job.  You didn’t get a raise or pay cut.  You didn’t get your car stolen.  Your house didn’t burn down.  Absolutely nothing in your actual life was different 5 minutes before the game than 5 minutes after.  All that changed were your emotions. 

#3: On your emotions, HAVE THEM.  Punch a wall.  Cry after the game.  Be sad.  Hell, be mad about it and believe all the conspiracy theories or grudges you want.  But be mature enough to control those emotions enough to know that it is a complete overreaction to take a basketball game’s result, no matter how bad a performance Higgins had, and actually transfer those emotions into negative actions affecting his life.  That game and its result should have an affect on approx. 40 or so people, 30 players on UNC and UK and 10 or so coaches from the 2 teams.  Those are the only people that result should have affected.  We’ve decided it should affect Higgins too and that’s sad.

#4: As far as what affect the loss actually had on UK players and coaches, it really didn’t.  Unlike an Oregon, who many hadn’t seen a lot during the year, making the Final Four wouldn’t have changed the stock of Bam, Fox, or Monk since they had already received so much exposure.  It also doesn’t change the life of John Calipari, who still makes millions, and his assistants who made hundreds of thousands of dollars.  They are still rich and highly successful.  Which player was legitimately “hurt” by that loss?  Sure, their college careers or seasons being over hurts, but it didn’t actually change their life for the worse.  So don’t lump your negative actions on the backs of players.

#5: Despite what some of these lunatics might think, they actually represent a very tiny minority of UK fans.  I genuinely don’t think it’s fair to say this represents what this fanbase it about.  While the percentage of UK fans who are extremely passionate about the team is higher than most, the reality and maybe dirty secret is that most of us just love the team, win or lose, but it is simply just one aspect of our lives, not the only aspect.  And the ability to compartmentalize the various enjoyment aspects of our lives is how we become good fans, not bad fans like these John Higgins losers.

#6: This has already been said but those who think that Higgins actually fixed the game, Kentucky covered the spread against UNC.  So just stop with the idea that there is more than just a bad performance here.

#7: Can a guy not just have a really bad day at the workplace?  And look, I think Higgins had a REALLY BAD day on the job.  But why is a ref a profession where you can’t have a bad day and just be completely lambasted outside of the workplace?  Can you imagine if a groundskeeper was receiving calls at home and death threats in emails because he trimmed the bushes incorrectly.  We would consider that INSANE!  But in this case, so many have either supported or justified our lunatic minority’s actions.

#8: We are the most successful basketball program in history.  John Higgins didn’t change that.  He didn’t change our legacy.  Sure, a Final Four was missed out but the legacy is already secure.  If I was Gonzaga and the refs screwed me over in winning my first national championship, then maybe I’d be a little more pissed.  Oh wait, that happened.  And if they can handle it without awful behavior, why can’t we?

#9: Again, Higgins was bad and his calls had a direct affect on the playing time of key UK players in the first half.  But the reality is he only was a FACTOR in the loss, not the sole reason.  UK shot just 41% for the game and was outrebounded by 10.  Malik Monk had 6 points in the first 29 minutes he played.  Luke Maye abused UK for 17 points and was left open on the final shot.  John Higgins didn’t do any of those things.  Should we send Maye threats?  His “actions” ended the careers of several UK players.  What about Kennedy Meeks and his 17 rebounds?  A couple of those he went over the back, aka cheated.  Should we threaten him too?

#10: I don’t think you or I can do anything about these fans.  I really don’t.  I think the one and only solution is for John Calipari or the players to go at them hard.  The word embarrassing should be in every tweet and message about these incidents from Coach Cal.  I thought his initial tweet was far too tame.  But I will also say that it’s not Calipari’s responsibility to control the behavior of the fanbase.  I wish he would but he doesn’t have to.  It’s is his job to coach a basketball team.  That’s it.

      This is all on the NCAA. This guy has been shown to be a terrible biased referree who has directly impacted the outcome of tournament games, and has had NO disciplinary action. In the political realm, when people aew dissastified with the gov’t and have no say in the outcome, they revolt, and what we saw was a revolt. I agree, people went too far, but how man times are people supposed to watch our team take it up the arse before they do something? The NCAA has a ref’ing crisis, and it would not surprise me to find out 10 years from now the refs were paid to make sure UNC won it all since they screwed over Arkansas, UK and Gonzaga. BTI is wrong when he says it has no effect on our lives. If you invest hundreds of hours into ANYTHING you do so expecting some reward. If it’s a neutral playing field and conditions, you can accept a loss. This is getting to be like the Olympics basketball game with Russia back in the 70’s. Plus, people also have invested a lot of money, and for BTI to ignore these points is intellectual immaturity at best.

      Don’t tell me this is your first time seeing one of BTI’s nonsensical posts? It is just something you have to tolerate.

      Yeah, he’s right it was totally wrong for the .00001% of the fan base (if those were all even UK fans and not posers in some cases) and that should have never happened, but the rest is just nonsense, and giving them another round of attention is absurd.

    6) We wouldn’t have covered the spread if it weren’t for the barrage of lucky threes at the end that were unfortunately too little and too late.

    7) he didn’t JUST have a bad day. He had game altering calls the entire last two weeks of his season which affected the outcome of many games

    9) you can’t just throw out bad performance stats and say that’s why we lost. fox missed the last shot in the first half BECAUASE he got fouled. essentially you’re saying we can’t complain about the bad no-call because he missed the shot. what the hell kind of reasoning is that. Maybe we make a few more baskets and those numbers don’t look so bad with even remotely biased officiating.

    Everything else is basically on point. but whatever. can we just drop it?

      I don’t think BTI said we shouldn’t complain. In fact, I believe he suggested that we hit a wall, etc. His primary point in all of this – and I happen to agree with him – is don’t act like a fool over this. Don’t threaten a man’s life or try to sabotage his personal business because of bad calls against our team in multiple games. Higgins is a terrible ref, but that doesn’t make him a terrible father, husband, or business owner…and we don’t have the right to try to trash his personal life over his basketball stupidity. Bottom line: get a grip minority of BBN that is being addressed in this article. As I have often “suggested” to my own kids at times, just because you have the ABILITY to do/say something stupid doesn’t mean that you SHOULD. Higgins is a turd and should not be allowed to ref any more UK games; but he has a right to privacy and conduct his own personal business without some lunatic who has no sense of reality trying to interrupt it.

    Another adequate article with many useful points. However, please understand feelings are real and a large part of our “real life”. As you pointed out in point 3, we must control those emotions. But even if we feel flat as a plate full of piss, it is just a game.

    And remember, BTI sucks…like a three year old on a thick milkshake.

    #10 – If you can’t identify the individuals doing these stupid things, then Cal or the players would have a difficult time saying they’re embarrassed by the fan base, without upsetting the 99.9% of us that aren’t being idiots.

    Cal already said to keep it classy, was that not enough for you BTI? He should come down REAL hard and alienate the fan base, lol, that sounds like a good plan!

    IMO, the best thing to do is to move on. It happened. UK can apologize to Higgins (which I’m guessing they may have already) and call it a day.

    This should’ve been put to rest after Seth Greenberg’s response that EVERY fan base has people like this and threats happen all the time but we’re still talking about it because it’s Kentucky, right? I’m not going to defend either side but it’s time to quit feeding into the NCAA and talk about what should be talked about like how the NCAA is going to conveniently punish UNC now that they’ve got their championship. Hint BTI: they don’t want us talking about that. They’re perfectly fine with you ignoring that and criticizing your own team instead.



  17. runtsfan

    Higgins’ involvement is irrelevant because his calls can only determine the outcome of the game. We’re not primarily interested in the game result, just showcasing draft-eligible players. And THAT went well so we’re happy.



    • Sentient Third Eye
      9:13 am April 5, 2017 Permalink

      No matter what Higgins did, the outcome was that UK was respected nationally as a team that competed at the highest level and just happened to lose. Nothing shameful in that. But what was the result of the calls to Higgins’ business? The reputation of BBN was diminished nationally as other fanbases laughed at us. That’s not a position BBN should ever want to be in.

    Higgins once again, allowed his personal vendetta against Calipari to influence his what should be professional job performance. Additionally, on pt 6, there are many ways to win with Vegas. There’s over/under, halftime point spreads, and on and on and on. The first half was sketchy and I don’t believe the personal opinion of BTI will change my opinion on that.

    I understand that it is too difficult and time consuming to monitor every comment on this website. Getting rid of every troll is next to impossible. But one thing that is controllable is not letting trolls post on this site. I haven’t read a post from BTI that didn’t oppose the BBN since I started coming to this site in 2006. He’s a poser, troller, fake fan, whatever you want to call it, he deserves a space on this website about the same as Pat Forde. Please do everyone a favor and revoke this mans privilage before he ruins something BBN loves.
    Thanks,
    A concerned fan

    Wow – – really surprised by the reaction here. Nice job, BTI. What you’ve uncovered is the same old small group of fans who live their lives by the Cats alone, thrive on conspiracy theories, deflect from the real issues themselves and generally support ridiculous, illegal behavior after a basketball loss. They have no concern whatsoever for the reputation of our school and our team. They fail to see the damage they do because they aren’t smart enough, not sophisticated enough to know that what was done was flat-out nuts. Grow up or get out, alt-BBN! We don’t need this.

      To quote Joey Lawrence…Whoa! I think you need to get off the high horse. From what I see, most don’t condone the calls or threats which are the action of a few in the fan base, but are smart enough to realize that the actions of several people shouldn’t impact how an entire fan base looks. I’ll dumb it down for you. What Dylan Roof did was terrible. Should I now say that all Americans are psychotic lunatics? Nice generalization. You can never control the actions of every individual. Another example is when Duke fans chanted “how’s your grandma” when that kids grandmother died. Terrible comment but does that tarnish Duke’s reputation?

      Many fans are passionate about the team but I find it hard to believe tha was his is all they live for. Using opinions based on replies to a Kentucky sports site or any article that is covering the subject seems a bit dense.

      I don’t condone the threats. I do however think Higgins has a vendetta against Calipari and I don’t’ think that’s some crazy conspiracy theory.

Look at this thread alone – – 90% of the comments are positive about idiotic action. These guys are in a bubble. Somehow it has escaped them that basketball fans all around the country think we UK fans are unhinged. Somehow it hasn’t occurred to alt-BBN that this would be the reaction.

      They complain about us Kentucky fans all the time. Now you’re worried about offending them? Sure, we’re the only irrational fanbase out there. There are no other fanbases that have ever issued death threats. If they can’t tell the difference between a few fans and all fans then they have problems being a rational adult.

      I don’t see anyone on this thread condoning the threats or violence and don’t use social media as a barometer to formulate any opinions because I can’t guarantee that those making these comments are in fact Kentucky fans.

      I don’t have a problem with people discussing that Higgins did an awful job especially as a trend is developed. I do have a problem with threats assuming they were from Kentucky fans and not trolls.

      The people that comment that UK fans are lunatics would have made the same generalized idiotic comments prior to any of this. I understand this got some coverage, but I am not embarrassed as a fan based on the actions of a few dipshits that you can never control. It’s in every fan base. It’s really in all facets of life.

    Here’s the thing. Jay Williams said the officiating was awful. So did Ken Pomeroy through twitter. Also. Prior to the NCAA Title game, Bill Walton talked about the 1st half officiating during the UK vs UNC game and how terrible it was. Not condoning any of the actions which involved Higgins personal life but why does the NCAA have officials who’s primary professions isn’t officiating? The NCAA should spend the money to have professional officials and not part-time officials who’s primary occupation is roofing, plumbing, or any profession other than basketball officials. The NCAA Tournentry officiating was terrible throughout the tournament. Imagine the touraent with officials who aren’t in theit early 50’s, slow, and Caucasian officiating games.

    “I don’t see anyone on this thread condoning the threats or violence…”
    My point is, there’ve been only a couple of comments (out of 40+) condemning the actions that took place against Higgins. No question, he did a very poor job! But that doesn’t justify what “fans” did against him later.

    To address another deflection, Higgins’ business address, web address and phone number did not appear on ESPN – – they were on UK message boards. It’s doubtful that ANYONE besides a UK “fan” called him or posted on his web address. It defies logic that a fan of another school would take the time to do that.

    Finally (and I am done here), I’m a UK alum, so just know: The school, the basketball program and its fans have been embarrassed by this. For most of our fans, this is not how we want to be known. If that doesn’t suit you, GTFO. It’s our school, not yours.



    • Mc12

      I am also a UK alum and don’t let the actions of .00001 impact me. I feel no embarrassment. Calipari and the school should not have to specifically address threats of a few as some talking heads have asked for. Calipari’ simple response of keep it classy are adequate.

      To think that a troll would not pose as a UK fan in an effort to make the school look bad is completely naive.

      Now say for example, my team used hookers to recruit players…. that would be damaging to a reputation and embarrassing



    • Mc12

      But I will agree. There may be a few fans who feel embarrassed (I’m not one of them), there may be a few at the university that want to put this behind them (I have already moved on from the game), and perhaps Cal is annoyed by it. However I believe they are all smart enough to know that the action of such a small number of fans (assuming they’re all UK fans) doesn’t reflect the vast majority. This point is exactly what Sasquatch mentions above.

      All this information was easily obtained on the web.You make it sound like the only way to get his business address and phone number was UK message boards. You really don’t think that there are rival teams’ fans that wouldn’t jump on the bandwagon and make harassing calls to higgins business after all this started to be reported? All these calls were made by UK fans and none of them apparently had the smarts to.block or alter their caller ID data? If I was going to threaten someone I sure would.

    What fans did was needed, not threats or disruptive, but the outcry from one more ref determined to take UK down. Last year we made an outcry because of Sirmons, Shows, Valentine and Ayers. It got results because they did a better job except Ayers. Even he was better, but Sirmons didn’t work any games I can remember. Higgins should never ref again, but especially against UK. Anyway the message was sent not only to Higgins, but the NCAA too. It was messy for sure, but we have been heard like it or not.

    Hmm… if he covered the spread with his bad calls then maybe that was his goal. If that was his goal, then maybe the NCAA isn’t the ring leader of said “game fixing.” I’ll leave the rest of that logic path to you to figure out, but it wasn’t that long ago that an NBA ref was accused AND CONVICTED of the same thing. That ref tried to say that it was a much bigger operation than just him, but that message didn’t get heard.
    The only problem I have with BTI’s article is his name-calling; leave that crap for the elementary school crowd.

    Among many problems I have with this post BTI I’ll be nice and keep it simple. Try zero *effect* not zero *affect*..most people learn that in elementary school, ok I lied about being nice. John Higgins put himself in this position. It wasn’t about this one game, we UK fans don’t make this kind of a stand over just a few calls on one game, regardless of the importance of said game. It is about a pattern over several games of the same questionable calls, when a team has a winning percentage that is MUCH lower in games where Higgins is an official than games where he is not. A home winning streak consisting of many games that was broken in a game called by Higgins. There are many more examples of something fishy going on. Why didn’t you use your energy BTI by researching these games and describing and detailing what has Kentucky fans so hot. Also, investigate if all these phone calls really did occur, I haven’t seen documented proof has anyone else? All I’ve heard is allegations nothing showing call logs from the phone co. Etc. Even if these calls did occur how do we know a lot of them aren’t made by rival fans? If I was going to make threatening calls I would either block my caller ID data or use one of the companies online like spoofcard that can make your caller ID read any name you want, any area code, any number. Yet all these “Kentucky” fans and virtually no one did this? Focus your efforts on things like that BTI instead of attacking your own fellow fans, although after this I question whether you are a fan. In UK games Higgins has officiated and lost a few had more importance than the NC game, the 2011 UConn final 4 game and the 2015 final 4 game against Wisconsin, where we all the threats from UK fans then? So quit taking all these allegations as fact and do some investigating and quit being lazy.

    Anyone have BTI’s phone number to post? I’m only kidding. I think this post is going to cause a lot of fans to quit reading and listening to KSR.
