    Just read on Yahoo that one of Penny’s players that had committed to Wichita St. has now flipped to Memphis, and that DJ Jefferies and Wiseman would follow Penny to Memphis. Didn’t even say might, said would. Didn’t know if t

      Memphis could recruit the top five recruits in America, but they will wash out. No way an inexperienced coach like Hardaway will know how to manage all those egos and meld them into a team. It took Cal many years of coaching to learn how to do this.

      DJ sounded to me like he was thrilled to play for Cal.

      yeah that doesn’t make any since. Penny knew he was getting that job when DJ committed to UK. which means DJ knew too. no way he didn’t. if DJ was ABSOLUTELY following penny to memphis, he would have waited to commit.

      I saw that Yahoo article. It was an opinion piece and not a report, so it seemed like a lot of speculation and nothing more. Who knows, though. I could stand losing those guys to Memphis instead of Duke, UNC or Kansas, for sure.

    This Cat team has already gone farther than i thought they would 45 days ago . I always said get us to the sweet 16 and i am happy with the season because you never know what can happen when you make it that far. Some people , even Drew says if we don’t go to the final 4 this season will be a disappointment and i think that”s crazy. The card fans started that BS when they realized that’s the only thing that they can hope happens to us to make them feel better. GOOD YEAR CATS no matter what happens tomorrow night. GO CATS.

      Ask the card fans what they thought about Mississippi State.

      10:08 am March 21, 2018 Permalink

      I think the way the path opened up has increased expectations. I love that they made the Sweet 16, but think they SHOULD survive this weekend too.

    Okay, help me out. I am no longer going to be able to hear “Cal’s a good recruiter, but not good at X’s and O’s…”. without arguing. I need a concise, one sentence answer that is better than: “Well you can be a moron that parrots stupid statements from bad reporters if you want, it’s a free country”.

    “Just look at what he’s done with this team” is a good start of course, but you guys are good with comebacks.



    • ukjaybrat
      10:16 am March 21, 2018 Permalink

      i no longer have the desire to argue with ignorant people. If they want to believe Cal is a bad coach, let them live in their own ignorance.

      I’m just about to the point where I don’t even try to change the minds of ignorant people anymore. When I wish the world was full of smarter sports fans, I just try to be a smarter sports fan. That’s sorta like my approach to other areas of life and it seems to work. Or at least it gets my attitude right.



    • Realme
      10:55 am March 21, 2018 Permalink

      That’s been my position for a long time. I just can’t let people say that particular one anymore. It’s too stupid, but they keep saying it.



    • J-Dub421
      10:57 am March 21, 2018 Permalink

      Then explain our success in the NCAA Tournament? 6-Elite Eight’s, 4 – Final Four’s, a Title, and a Runner-Up in eight years shows consistency that doesn’t just happen by accident. Also, Cal has the highest win percentage of any coach at UK ever, including Rupp.



    • ClutchCargo
      11:08 am March 21, 2018 Permalink

      The X’s and O’s thing is always said by people who have no idea what they’re talking about, which is why I understand the frustration. Literally every single D-1 college coach knows X’s and O’s well enough to win. It’s on the players to execute. If your players can’t or won’t execute, it makes you as the coach look bad, but it doesn’t mean you don’t know or can’t coach X’s and O’s. Even Billy G understood this and used to say “It’s Jimmies and Joes, not X’s and O’s.” Now, let’s not talk about that guy anymore. ๐Ÿ™‚



    • J-Dub421
      11:08 am March 21, 2018 Permalink

      Coach K copies everything Cal does. If Cal were a bad coach, would that happen?



    • runningunnin.454
      11:11 am March 21, 2018 Permalink

      And a winning percent at UK only surpassed by Sam Burton at W Texas A&M in the ’20’s, and Clair Bee at Long Island U in the ’30’s.



    • J-Dub421
      11:11 am March 21, 2018 Permalink

      Cal only has one loss to a non Power Five conference school in 9 seasons = good coaching. Under Cal UK doesn’t lose to teams we have no business losing to.



    • ClutchCargo
      11:12 am March 21, 2018 Permalink

      To answer the question… just put it back on them to explain what a “good X’s and O’s coach” does differently than Cal. I’ll bet they can’t. Anecdotal evidence that a team won a particular game doesn’t cut it, either.



    • Realme
      11:19 am March 21, 2018 Permalink

      Lots of good stuff. I think Clutch’s idea of making them explain why they think that is a great start.



    • Realme
      11:21 am March 21, 2018 Permalink

      I’ve used the “name a better current coach” (besides K, reasonable people can argue that) thing a lot. That’s super easy to dismantle.



    • J-Dub421
      11:33 am March 21, 2018 Permalink

      Cal is the only coach to have a 38 win season since the season expanded to 40 games. He’s done it three times at two different schools. So why can’t all these other great x’s and o’s coaches win that many games?

    Michael Bennett’s voice goes up about five octaves when he gets excited and sounds like a little girl. Reminds me of the Agent Pleakley alien character from “Lilo & Stitch”.

    Our guys have been embarrassed enough times this season, I am not at all worried they will overlook K State.

    Can you imagine the crap the media would be giving Cal if Ky had been the one seed that lost to the sixteen seed. Oh the one and done has finally bit Cal in the butt, but you didn’t hear a lot about Virginia and the veteran team they had.

      Media and crap go together now days.



    • ukjaybrat
      10:43 am March 21, 2018 Permalink

      to be fair, i always thought it’d be a 1AD team to lose to a 16 seed. but in hindsight, it makes sense for a “defensive team” to get down early and not be able to come back. but 20 points !?!? i never would have guessed that in a hundred years.



    • ClutchCargo
      10:55 am March 21, 2018 Permalink

      I have nothing against Bennett, so I can’t gloat about this one. But WHY could that not have been Duke losing as a 1 seed (I know they’re not a 1 this year, just saying)?



    • ukjaybrat
      10:58 am March 21, 2018 Permalink

      dukes had enough 2 seed losses that it might as well have been a 1 lol



    • J-Dub421
      10:59 am March 21, 2018 Permalink

      What happened to Virginia’s vaunted veteran defense, that they allowed themselves to get down by 20? Where were the stops?



    • ukjaybrat
      11:00 am March 21, 2018 Permalink

      wait i lied. i thought they were a 2 when mercer beat them



    • ClutchCargo
      11:17 am March 21, 2018 Permalink

      But Duke probably had the tournament draw that a 2 or 1 should have had, so that’s understandable, ukjaybrat.



    • RealCatsFan
      11:32 am March 21, 2018 Permalink

      Clutch, you nailed it – that would have been even more delicious if dook had been the victim of the 16/1 defeat. And if there was really basketball Karma, Butler would have nailed that last second three for the NCAA Championship in 2010. But of course, like ‘Nova’s win over UNCheat, they don’t have to see that play on TV EVERY FREAKING YEAR.

    I have the same problem as Walter – very little grey on my head, but my beard is almost all white. My wife has been trying to get me to shave it for years, says it will make me look younger, and she is probably right. But I’m afraid then it will make my seventeen chins show up a lot more. ๐Ÿ˜‰

      J-Dub, I guess I could, but then I would kind of feel like a poser, like a phony. Guys are funny that way. I think it’s perfectly acceptable for ladies to color their hair, but as soon as guys do it, it begins to look “desperate” in the same vein as a combover. That’s my opinion, anyway. Others may differ. ๐Ÿ˜‰
