BTI’s Rants and Ramblings: Poor Nick Calathes…..

As we head into another huge clash with Florida this weekend at Rupp, and coming off the stunning miss of 3 free throws by Riley Lachance last weekend, it seemed like a good time to remember one of the epic choke jobs by a UK opponent.  Remember, this was the 2nd Billy Gillispie team.  Plus, Patrick Patterson got hurt in this game.  Despite all that, UK still held a 3-point lead late before an incredibly dumb foul of Calathes, a guy who had scored 33 points up to that moment in the game.   And then this happened:

    THAT is how Rupp Arena should be for every home game.

    This was the first game my mother, who was 70 yrs. old, ever seen at Rupp.

    Nick was a special player I thought, whatever became of him? Seemed like he chased money over in Europe.

    I’ve been to nearly every regular season game at Rupp since Tubbys last year and this was the loudest I ever heard it.

    Enjoyed this immensely cuz Calathes is one of my least favorite athletes of all time. Saw him blindside a UK player without remorse.

    I’ve been to plenty of games at Rupp. I was at this game. I can tell you 100%, without a doubt, this was unquestionably the loudest I’ve ever heard Rupp get in person. I was screaming at the top of my lungs when Calethas shot those free throws and the guy standing next to me couldn’t hear a word I said.
