    Me watching a Bilas called game:

    Criticizes a member of the other team: “Ha ha this is great.”
    Criticizes the officials or the NCAA: “Man, he is so smart. Well said.”
    Says our player flopped: “Ooooh this guy is the worst! SO biased.”

    Speaking of the Kansas game, I thought Self was going to blow his hairpiece off and it is one fine hairpiece. I thought the KU players were pretty good sports overall, never thought I’d say that about a Kansas team.



    • RealCatsFan
      10:33 am January 28, 2019 Permalink

      Think I saw a Kansas player helping a UK player up off the floor one time, and that is a sign of good sportsmanship. Always good to see. We as fans have to understand that it is not personal for these guys most of the time – a lot of them are friends off the court and played together and against each other in AAU’s.

      Quickley helped a Kansas guy up at one point as well. Good sportsmanship all around.

      Probably because they usually crap out of the tourney. We don’t have to worry about them catching up to our 8.

    Heard Tom Leach talking about Nick Richards’ girlfriend, Leah Edmond (star UK Volleyball outside hitter) helping him with his confidence issues. Looked up the article, and it looks like an interesting read, but I just can’t get myself to sign up with The Atlantic at $3.00 / month to read it. Is that bad?

    • RealCatsFan

      That being said, I love Nick and I really love Leah, being a “volleyballer” myself. I hope they stay together and get married someday and have themselves five or six children – the boys will become dominating UK big men, and the girls will be dominating UK outside hitters. πŸ™‚



    • Realme

      I saw some excerpts somewhere. The part I saw talked about how she sees that he works a lot harder than she does off the court and challenges her to do more.



    • RealCatsFan
      10:36 am January 28, 2019 Permalink

      I think my younger daughter was channeling her inner Leah Edmond over the weekend. We were short a player and she had to hit on the front row for her volleyball team – all 5-foot-2 of her. She ended up leading the team in hitting percentage and hitting efficiency, and was 2nd in digs. Never got blocked once, only 2 hitting errors. Proud papa. πŸ™‚

    • I have never paid for ESPN Insider or any sports or political site. There is so much free stuff I don’t need it. Granted, someone will still occasionally post a comment on KSR accusing Matt of growing KSR by stealing stuff that was behind other site’s pay walls and “scooping” it. I don’t know how true that is or not. I first discovered this site the week BCG was hired and MJ was in the middle of his war with Maggard, apparently over that very issue.

      I’m good with them getting married and having kids as long as they all commit to Kentucky RealCats.

    I didn’t like the 94 feet on our court with a Kansas player either. If your only choice is to have an opponent do the 94 feet on the home team’s court, just skip that segment.

  7. My listening is spotty but I see they’re going to talk about the Royal Rumble.

    I’ve asked this before and I’ll ask it again: why is it that when wrestling maintained Kayfabe, sports networks didn’t cover it. Now that they admit it’s staged, ESPN, CBS Sports, etc. cover it. Would they cover the NFL if tomorrow Roger Goodell admitted “Haha! We fooled you guys all these years. I actually DID phone the officials to tell them not to call interference or targeting on the Rams! I do it every game!!!”

    • RealCatsFan
      10:41 am January 28, 2019 Permalink

      I really hope that Nick and EJ will both be back next year. I don’t really see Cal getting another big with the possible exception of Hurt, and having both those guys for another year would be huge. I can see either or both of them making a similar move up to what WCS did for the 2015 year when he came back his junior year. I like the sound of “Junior Nick Richards”. πŸ™‚



    • J-Dub421
      10:44 am January 28, 2019 Permalink

      Nick had 5 blocks, and they were important. That’s 10 points erased. Nick may not have scored, but he influenced the game.



    • RealCatsFan

      Maybe Nick should get a neck tattoo. πŸ™‚



    • runningunnin.454

      I hope EJ doesn’t transfer; I’m not sure he’s receptive to Cal’s style.



    • RealCatsFan
      11:30 am January 28, 2019 Permalink

      I hope he won’t transfer too. He needs to stick it out – there have been so many examples of big men who Cal has helped get into the league.

      J-dub, seeing the comments from Brad’s sisters would make it worth it to see him get the neck tat. Hell, it was probably pretty bad when he got “earned not given”. πŸ˜€

    • I love having Ashton reeking havoc on D and having Reid bullying dudes in the post. I hope he can play like that against UT.

      Reid and PJ and Nick and EJ will all foul out against UT. Can’t look at them without picking up a foul.

      When we played Louisville, their big dude (Enoch) kept trying to bully Reid in the paint, and never worked. He’d lower his shoulder and try to body Reid, who didn’t budge even a centimeter. It looked like Enoch was trying to move a brick wall.

      I would like to see, when the team that’s behind in the last minute fouls “intentionally”, the offense gets 2 ft’s and the ball. I was waiting for our game, and the last minute took 40 minutes. Everybody knows the fouls are intentional.

    10:47 am January 28, 2019 Permalink

    I have been to a few games at Vandy. The best part about their arena is that it is more like a high school gym the way it’s setup. You can easily access any other section from where you currently are. Several years ago, I went with 5 other guys and our seats were way up in the top of the end zone. Early in the game we noticed there were 6 empty seats in the 3rd row just to the right of the opposite goal. We just walked down there like we belonged and sat there the rest of the game. Had a great view of Rondo bricking free throws that would have tied or won the game. πŸ™

    I sat next to an idiot like that at the Mississippi St. football game this past season. He was a couple of seats to my right, and my buddy was beside me on the left. We just started laughing at him. Later in the game, when they were down big, he was just standing there with a bummed out look on his face. My buddy said “he doesn’t have much to say now.” I responded (making sure he could hear it) “Cats must have his tongue.” He wan’t amused, but he didn’t have anything to say to that, either.

      They wanted him to “handle a snake” at the revival, he said, “where’s your back door”, We don’t have one. “Wonder where they want one”.

    The faces of football next year will be Kash, TW, and Lynn Bowden. I can’t believe Matt’s overlooking Bowden. (Actually I can.)

    So, does UK move up in the rankings any after last week? Not sure if many teams ahead of them lost, so maybe not.

      in the morning post Drew said only team ahead of us that lost was MI St. They lost to a previously unranked Purdue so I would think we would move ahead of them, but you never know.

      Who else in the top 10 beat another top 10 team? That should count for something.

      That just means they’ll put Purdue ahead of us.
