    Prayers to all at The Great Smokey Mountains, love that place. Still fired up about kicking the Cards ass Sat., that’s right cats paw kicked your ass.

      not to mention “Brickscoe” is shooting .557 overall, .750 from free throw, and .333 from 3pt on the season.

      He really is the worst shooter of all time. Cats Paw is like Nostradamus yo!

      Very sad about the Gatlinburg area. It’s so beautiful there. Hopefully all will be well.

      Rick, I echo what you are saying. Truly tragic. We were supposed to go down there in January for a club volleyball tournament for my kids. Doubt if that will happen now, as they are using all of the sports centers as shelters.

      I don’t think the rain can do a whole lot to put out the structure fires. Many homes, businesses and resorts destroyed. Hillbilly Golf is destroyed, and Westgate resort (where we stayed last year) is gone. Prayers that those folks will be able to recover quickly.

      I worry a lot about something similar happening in our area. With all the trees dying in our area from the ash borers, there will be a lot of fuel available. One extended drought and it will be a tinderbox.

      “Cats Paw is like Nostradamus yo!” – ukjaybrat, actually he is more like Nostradumbass.

    • Same here about G’burg & Pigeon Forge. I’m so sad for all who are affected. My wife and I went there for our honeymoon and we’ve been back a couple times. Absolutely beautiful area and I love it. If this was arson as some are saying, I hope they nail whoever is responsible.

      Realme, which video are you referring to?

      Prayers up for all affected by the fires!!!

    Dakich was probbaly the best analyst we’ve had to listen to calling our game since Bilas, but his super complimentary attitude towards UK, from before the game even started, was very suspicious.



    • CATandMONKEY
      10:20 am November 29, 2016 Permalink

      I have to believe his superiors said to use objective facts rather than personal prejudice during the broadcast. Dan still has a long way to go before I will truly consider him a fair analyst.



    • Realme
      10:22 am November 29, 2016 Permalink

      He’s definitely biased, with the exception of last night, but imo he is the best at explaining the game, and not being boring or annoying (except for the Michael Jordan thing).



    • secrick
      10:23 am November 29, 2016 Permalink

      Yeah i agree CM , after all he did say last year he can’t believe Pitino is still coaching at Lville, got like him for that.



    • ukjaybrat
      10:24 am November 29, 2016 Permalink

      i dont watch a lot of dan dakich, but from what i have seen, it’s like matt says, he’s pretty good at calling a game, but he’s also just a giant troll when he’s off-air. but to be fair, it’s a pretty good tactic to get a lot of clicks on his site, and what better bear to poke than bbn. he knows we will give him the clicks.



    • ukjaybrat
      10:25 am November 29, 2016 Permalink

      so that being said, i think he is actually really good at what he does. there are two types of trolls imo. the trolls that hate uk and blast them for whatever just because they hate us (forde, knight, etc)

      and the trolls that honestly just want clicks (goodman, dakich, etc)

    Dan surprised me a couple times late in the season last year. If I hadn’t known he was calling the game, I wouldn’t have known it was him. Pleasantly surprised.



  5. CATandMONKEY

    Remember Matt those assists are also dependent on the shooter making the shot.
    However I believe Fox is potentially the best PG yet. Too soon to tell but he truly does it all.

    I love our basketball team. They are so much fun to watch.



    • Realme
      10:35 am November 29, 2016 Permalink

      I didn’t know anything would be more fun to watch than when we’ve had insanely good shot blockers demoralizing the other team, but watching them get up the court in a blink is extremely fun to watch.



    • RealCatsFan
      10:39 am November 29, 2016 Permalink

      The thing is, this team has some shot blockers too. They are just now getting to the point where our defense is catching up to the offense. When that happens, watch out – we might just get to that “next level” that Cal was talking about.



    • CATandMONKEY
      10:40 am November 29, 2016 Permalink

      For the last 3 years I have eschewed live TV for the radio broadcast and live blog then watched DVR the next day. This season I have already watched 3 full games live. It is simply too much to miss. I will probably split the remainder of the season evenly between radio and TV.



    • Realme
      10:42 am November 29, 2016 Permalink

      Yeah, just imagine if this team improves over the next couple months like a typical Cal team. As someone on Twitter said last night, prayers out for the rest of college basketball.



    • J-Dub421

      We aren’t anywhere close to our ceiling yet. This team is such a good passing team, and so unselfish! I also love the speed we play at, and we’re starting to have smothering defense. They also play with such a sense of joy. It really is better when the team looks like they’re having fun.

    So fast up and down the floor, it’s fun to watch. So many good players not just freshman. We are very deep and anyone can score, heck Jones would start at most schools.

    Why on earth would we drop down in a bowl after beating Louisville?

      What are you talking about, can’t listen to the radio.



    • J-Dub421
      10:49 am November 29, 2016 Permalink

      Matt was discussing possible bowl destinations; he said we could move up to a better bowl, or maybe down depending on where Tennessee goes.



    • ukjaybrat
      10:58 am November 29, 2016 Permalink

      because our ideal bowl right now would be belk or music city. we would obviously rather have the music city, but UT will probably go there because they lost. So then our ideal best bowl would be the belk, but that game is the same night as a uk basketball game. So then our next two options would be liberty bowl (moving down a notch) or the gator bowl aka tax slayer bowl (moving up a notch). but i doubt we will be able to move up that high because there are too many sec teams better than us that will probably go there.

      So we will probably end up in the belk bowl and just have two games in one night because i doubt they will want to drop all the way down to the liberty bowl.



  9. secrick
    10:48 am November 29, 2016 Permalink

    Any bowl game we play in will be a let down anyway after the Lville game. Sorry but that was better than winning a bowl.



    • RealCatsFan
      11:23 am November 29, 2016 Permalink

      Yep, the only way to top it would be to actually beat Louisville IN a bowl game. Would be a little bit like knocking them out of the FF back in 2012.

    Props to Briscoe; he clearly worked on the things he needed to work on over the summer (shooting). He also does all the things well that he did well last season (defense, driving/slashing, passing). He’s a very complete player now.



    • CATandMONKEY
      11:01 am November 29, 2016 Permalink

      By focusing on his deficiencies Briscoe has added even more confidence and swag to his overall game.
      His defense, slashing and overall presence on the court now seems to have achieved another level.



    • RealCatsFan
      11:12 am November 29, 2016 Permalink

      Briscoe proves that sometimes it is worthwhile to come back to school for that extra year to polish your game before declaring to the NBA. He probably earned himself millions of dollars doing that.

      Realme, see, that’s the thing. I’m the cheapskate scrimper, always worried about where the money will come from. My wife is more of a free spirit. I have often joked that she thinks we have a money tree growing in the back yard that we can just pick bills off of. Add in the future college expenses of two kids coming on real soon, and I lose sleep at night.

      I think my older kid has a chance at getting a scholly somewhere. She has never had less than an A her whole school career, and she is takinng two AP classes already as a freshman. Took the practice ACT and got a 26 on it for her first try. Hoping she will make Governor’s Scholar – that would be her ticket. The younger one I worry about a little bit – she is plenty smart, but a procrastinator like her dad. 😉

    • I’m blessed that my wife HATES to shop. She likes to just find what she needs and leave, or “Get In And Get Out!” (like JC Penney said a couple years ago in their advertising aimed at MEN for their men’s department!).

      Not sure if they still do this since it’s been a few years, but EKU gives (or used to) full rides if you get a 29 or better on the ACT. My best friend got a 30 and took advantage of that.
