    So…the game last night. I couldn’t even watch it with all the fouls. I started on my dvr about 20 minutes behind real time. Had to fast forward through some bc the fouls were making it a snooze fest. Same with 2nd half. I hope they address the ticky-tack calls in the offseason and direct them to stop it next year.



    • runningunnin.454
      10:01 am January 16, 2020 Permalink

      Forget about that; the ncaa wants FT shooting contests. We had 3 fouls inside of two minutes, and 6 fouls in the first 5 minutes…I think; it made me dizzy.



    • runningunnin.454
      10:04 am January 16, 2020 Permalink

      It is an ncaa area of emphasis; and they have their gods…Higgins, Adams, Shows, Valentine; and 23 others.

      They made it unwatchable, I assume for both sides. And clearly showed their disdain for Cal and some of our players. You’d think they’d want to look neutral and fair.

      10:11 am January 16, 2020 Permalink

      I didn’t see the whole game, but apparently the Bama/Auburn game was similar. I did see some of the 2nd half. Nice win for Bama. Our win over them would look better if we hadn’t taken the gas pipe…AGAIN…at SC.

      BTW, I’m with Matt in that I agree with Cal NOT calling TO at the end there. The guy just got lucky, and if we played better it doesn’t happen in the first place.



    • RealCatsFan
      10:18 am January 16, 2020 Permalink

      I read that the Chickens were in the bonus before they even scored a field goal. Still, rebound and play a little defense, and this doesn’t happen. Hope they learn from it.

      That’s true RCF; their first point was a FT.

      The comments after a loss are a never ending source of amusement, but also an overload of negativity. It just becomes a rabbit hole for me, so I have been skipping that for the most part.

    If all of our opponents wore UofL jerseys, we would never lose a game. Cal gets the guys to play over their heads every year in that game. And then we turn around and lay an egg against teams like USC.

      Dude, have you ever coached TEENAGERS? Ever tried to get them to do anything consistently? Look around – teams all over the country are LOSING GAMES. OMG! It’s an epidemic.

      Hot tip to you Hot Stuff – the days of total dominance in College Basketball are long gone. And especially this year. Get used to it, or become a Clemson/LSU/Alabama football fan.

      Just for those who don’t know, “Hot Stuff” was a rassler’ back in the glory days of the NWA/WCW, and Missy Hyatt was his valet/manager. She was easy on the eyes.

    Ugh, that was ugly last night. IQ and Nick played well, and EJ had a decent game. Hagans was off, and so was most of the rest of the team.

    Matt keeps wondering why our defense was bad in the second half. It’s because our whole freaking team was in foul trouble. When everyone has four fouls, they back off on defense because they don’t want to pick up their fifth foul. I thought that was obvious.



    • Realme
      10:24 am January 16, 2020 Permalink

      Yeah, pretty obvious cause and effect there.



  8. runningunnin.454
    10:21 am January 16, 2020 Permalink

    First half was like a bad experiment; we ran the offense through our least talented guys. The wrong players were taking all the shots, while ignoring the hottest hand in America.
    Second half we were up 14, and we quit playing defense and rebounding. And, Cal took the night off, and said sink or swim; he talked about it after the game, but, at some point, you have to do something. I guess I would have lost by 20 because I would have been playing 2 walk-ons and a baseball player..if he made the trip, haha.



    • Realme
      10:24 am January 16, 2020 Permalink

      Looked like he saw we were up by double digits and decided it was time to get Johnny and Kahlil more time to see if he could get them going. Ooops.



    • Bluehender
      12:27 pm January 16, 2020 Permalink

      Rg, I think some of our former coaches used to do that. Was it Pitino, Tubby, or JoeB? Or all of them? Empty the end of the bench when all the others were playing horribly. Cal would never do that. But I wish he would..



    • runningunnin.454
      1:20 pm January 16, 2020 Permalink

      Bluehender, that was Joe B. Important game, too; it was against Florida State in the ncaa tournament in ’78; it worked, too; we won the game…and subsequently the NCAA tournament.

    Dudes on WHAS this morning were asking if that was a Whittaker Bank Shot that the Chickens hit, and I had to laugh out loud.

    I missed the game because I was at our HS volleyball postseason banquet. At least daughter#1 won MVP and daughter#2 won defensive POY. Both got All-State-Academic-Team honors. So at least I had that to offset the crappy basketball game.

    I watched the replay of the last 5 minutes, and it was kind of amazing that we were able to tie it up after being down 6 with about 30 seconds to go. Alas, we left a little too much time on the clock and died by the dagger of “prevent defense” that prevented nothing. Feces happens.

    Is anyone else sick of playing in that damned chicken house they have down there? We always seem to play like crap. I think I might actually prefer playing in Ass Hall.



  16. RealCatsFan
    11:02 am January 16, 2020 Permalink

    Sorry, but unless we have a major implosion, I don’t see us missing the tournament. Yes, we have some bad losses, but who doesn’t? Not very many teams. I think the Louisville and Mich St wins are still pretty good wins, even though both teams don’t look as strong now as they did at the time. And this team tends to play up or down to the level of their competition. I think they will rise to the occasion against Auburn and Texas Tech.

    I just want someone to fix college officiating. 54 fouls called in a 40 minute game is simply unacceptable. That’s more than one per minute of game. It’s practically unwatchable. No one is tuning in for a free throw shooting contest, or to see the refs.



    • Realme

      11:09 am January 16, 2020 Permalink

      one foul every 44 seconds is what that amounts to. So boring to watch.



    • runningunnin.454
      11:14 am January 16, 2020 Permalink

      I’ve been complaining about it for years; NO ONE wants to watch a FT shooting contest. But, as I said, this is the ncaa’s emphasis to insure parity. That, and the fact that they’re not going to spend the money to get competent, or even consistent officials.



    • ClutchCargo
      11:14 am January 16, 2020 Permalink

      The NBA has its own issues, but the officials aren’t one of them. I watch a lot of NBA and couldn’t even tell you the names of more than a couple of them.
