    First and if you comment something negative today you have no life and are a miserable human being!

    North Carolina and W Virginia go down…..parity. The Virginia Tech win suddenly looks a lot better, huh?

      10:03 am January 23, 2018 Permalink

      Yep, and WVU! Which could be a bad thing for us – they will be angry. Of course, we should be angrier! If our guys can just come in there loose with a chip on their shoulders and play with maximum energy, they might be able to sneak out of there with a win.



    • RealCatsFan
      10:05 am January 23, 2018 Permalink

      Can’t believe Va Tech doesn’t get any love in the rankings. That win and the Louisville win should be considered to be pretty good wins – although both were at home. We need a solid road win. WVU anyone? 😉

      I’m not ready to call a win at WVU just yet, but they look beatable. Great pressure defense, as always, but the same offensive struggles that all Bob Huggins teams always seem to have. Just take care of the ball, and this is a winnable game. I know, I know…

      I seem to remember State went to the final four one year…I think if they had beaten Syracuse, we would have played in the championship game; I could be wrong, though.

      1996. They beat us in SEC Championship game and we beat Syracuse in title game. One of the best college teams ever assembled.

      I really hate losing to the Gators so I need a big win to keep me from leaning towards the negative end of the fan spectrum.

      It’s just a sad symptom of the deep rooted problems that plague our nation. So much hate and anger out there. Yes, we had a lot of big problems back in the 70’s and 80’s, but you didn’t have a school shooting about once a month like we do now.

    • Awful, just awful. I can’t imagine what the students and parents are going through.

    • And prayers up for them all of them and the employees.

    • Ugh. Prayers up for all the students, families, and employees.

    As far as the “this state will take care of you for life” sales pitch, the elite won’t need taken care of, and the Boldens of the Duke world probably won’t find that promise fulfilled.



  7. runningunnin.454
    10:22 am January 23, 2018 Permalink

    LOL, why would they want to play in a bread box that seats less than 10,000 people? Memorial is bigger than that. At least their opponents are indoors, and don’t have to play on the asphalt courts with the chain nets.



    • RealCatsFan
      10:27 am January 23, 2018 Permalink

      Might sound like sacrilege, but sometimes I think Memorial would be a better environment. I wish Cal would give serious thought to having a game there with general admission seating. It would be off the chain!



    • ClutchCargo
      10:44 am January 23, 2018 Permalink

      I was a student back in the days when Midnight Madness was still held in Memorial, but I never saw a game there. I would be in favor of a game there every season.

    • Eddie Sutton wanted to have a game there. He said it would be like the (now old) gym at Arkansas where the crowd was right on top of the court. He loved the idea, but I don’t think it will ever happen. He wanted to hold a lottery or something for the tickets, and charge higher than normal admission to make up the shortfall of the game not being in Rupp.



    • RealCatsFan
      11:37 am January 23, 2018 Permalink

      Eddie had the right idea. It would be huge, and it would get nationwide coverage.

    The bulldog is cute, but today I am a Cat person, and I don’t have to turn in my Man Card for it.

      Many years ago when my best friend and I were roommates, her basset hound would chase my cat behind the couch. My cat would run out the other side, then hop up onto the back of the couch and just sit and watch the dog bark and lose his mind over where the cat used to be. The dumb dog never looked up.



    • RealCatsFan
      10:37 am January 23, 2018 Permalink

      I have to confess that I actually AM a cat person. Have had Siamese cats for many years. Had a 22 pound male that used to rule the roost. He “attached himself” to my 65 lb yellow lab one time when the dog was playing too rough with one of the other cats. The sight of this cat chasing the dog across the back yard had my elderly neighbor shaking her head in amazement and amusement.

      10:43 am January 23, 2018 Permalink

      I love cats and dogs, but cats practically take care of themselves compared to dogs, so they end up being what we have as pets. Blessed right now to have 2 that are hilarious and truly affectionate with us.



    • J-Dub421
      10:44 am January 23, 2018 Permalink

      We have three cats. I’m glad I’m married so I don’t look like a crazy cat lady. 🙂

      I will take a cat in a tussle vs any dog up to 50% bigger, maybe even more.

      Nature’s perfect predator. Now if someone could remind my [email protected]$$ cats of that.
      My wife and girls treat our cats better than any Egyptian pharoah’s feline.



    • J-Dub421
      11:15 am January 23, 2018 Permalink

      Cats do have a lot of attitude. I once saw the orange tabby at the farm where I used to ride horses rule a rottweiler. He raked his claws across the rottweiler’s nose and the dog yelped and ran away.



    • RealCatsFan

      I have always maintained that if reincarnation is real and we come back as an animal, then a race horse would be the ultimate. But a house cat would be a close second.

      I’m kind of excited about Tyler Herro. I think he might be sneaky good. Hoping that he will be the kind of outside threat that you see with Trae young.



    • runningunnin.454

      Just as long as he doesn’t shoot 10 feet behind the three point line. Yeah, Young gets a lot of points; but, his team loses.

    “You can’t hate one and done, and then be upset about not getting Zion”. Apparently you can, because I don’t think there are 2 opposing negative portions of BBN. I think they are the same gripers, being ultimate hypocrites.

    ESPN has Knox rated as No. 11 draft pick…I’m so tired of these kids being rushed; He may be a great NBA player some day….but he’s just not ready for that.

    All we need is for Duke to have another early exit as a 1 or 2 seed this Spring and things will start to even out.



    • J-Dub421
      10:35 am January 23, 2018 Permalink

      They’ve had several. I don’t know why no one (outside of present company) ever calls them out on it. The national media act like Mercer and Lehigh never happened, but we get called underachievers for losing one game to a really good Wisconsin team with 2 lottery picks.



    • runningunnin.454

      Don’t forget Oregon and South Carolina. And, K sure showed his butt after the Oregon game.

      Not to mention that no one calls them out on the Lance Thomas affair or the Corey Magette scandal.

    Where is the guy that wants to fire Cal, and hire Billy D?
    Donovan couldn’t take it at UK; too many la-z-boy HOF coaches….Sutton, Tubby, and BCG couldn’t take it. Takes a special person to handle the spotlight and insanity that is UK.
    And, he’s not impressed by Cal’s 0.82 winning percent compared to Donovan’s 0.71 at Fla.



    • J-Dub421
      10:48 am January 23, 2018 Permalink

      Yeah, I called him out on that yesterday. I probably wouldn’t have, but he keep posting the same thing repeatedly. Donovan couldn’t hang onto Durant, and can’t win consistently with Westbrook, George, and Anthony. Pass.



    • CATandMONKEY
      10:55 am January 23, 2018 Permalink

      Agree with you both.
      I will take Cal,thanks.

  16. Matt, stick ta (fake) sports!!! 🙂

  17. Hey guys, question: on the KSR app notifications, all I hear is the default iPhone tone. They keep talking about Ryan’s laugh, but is that Android only or something? I don’t see any option in my phone’s settings to change the tone to anything other than Apple’s tones or some tones I created and loaded.



    • runningunnin.454
      11:01 am January 23, 2018 Permalink

      Once I set a colleague’s phone to say “do you understand the words that are coming out of my mouth” every time it rang…..she had no sense of humor…at all.

    • Haha!

      BTW, I don’t keep notifications on for ANYTHING except regular old fashioned texts, but I did, unfortunately, turn them on for the Zion announcement. I first did it last year for Knox and that worked out better.



    • J-Dub421
      11:18 am January 23, 2018 Permalink

      It may be individual depending on the phone. I had the Ryan laugh on my last phone (a Sony Experia Z3), but my new phone just does a little ding.



    • Realme
      11:19 am January 23, 2018 Permalink

      I didn’t keep the app, but are there no settings you can adjust?

    • Yep, but not for Ryan’s laugh. I’ve looked in the KSR app notification settings and the “Sound and Haptics” settings, but nada for the creepy giggle.



    • Realme
      11:35 am January 23, 2018 Permalink

      It still happens on my husband’s phone, but we’re androids. 🙂

    • I think it must be just for Android. Android is open source (“sort of” as one tech writer put it) but Apple has everything so locked down they probably don’t allow it.

      However, I have put a couple MP3 songs & sound effects on my phone as tones (figured out how to do it searching with Google), so I could look for a Ryan laugh on the YooToob (like when he laughed at Greg Marshall’s wife) and do it myself, but it takes time that I don’t think I want to spend.

    Matt is wrong – Count Krzycheskjhgdjgki is ever bit of 400 years old – but that is fairly youthful for a vampire. Jeff Capel is also a vampire – K converted him. They have their own version of Salem’s Lot up there.
