    I’d like to think we wouldn’t act like that silly unicorn thing was cool, but probably we would have. It’s really going to backfire if he doesn’t have a good year.

      Yep the sky is falling, the sky is falling!

      The unicorn thing is lame. It’s also really arrogant.

      I’m not going to sit here and pretend I didn’t want him to pick UK, but I didn’t know about the unicorn crap until the announcement. This is definitely a new level above pooping ice cream.

    I’m sick of the recruiting negativity. We are not entitled to get every top player, and Cal will get the players that belong here.



    • Iamheasyouarehe

      YES! ^^^

      And the Duke comparison negativity. Good grief, let’s just stop playing this season since Duke is good. And let’s give up on next year because a unicorn didn’t want to come here.

    I just can’t accept anything associated with dooku basketball as being sexy or cool. That vampire that coaches them is about as cool as an actuary.



    • J-Dub421
      10:56 am November 21, 2018 Permalink

      Watch Grayson Allen dance from last year. Not remotely cool.

    Duke will get all the calls this year because the media is in love with them. Last night’s game vs Auburn is proof.



    • Realme
      10:33 am November 21, 2018 Permalink

      The fact that Auburn only lost by 6 makes me feel better about them possibly going undefeated for a long time.



    • Iamheasyouarehe
      10:37 am November 21, 2018 Permalink

      agreed



    • Iamheasyouarehe
      10:39 am November 21, 2018 Permalink

      Auburn is the first real team Duke has faced, including UK.



    • J-Dub421
      10:58 am November 21, 2018 Permalink

      “Duke will get all the calls this year.” So same as every other year?



  5. RealCatsFan
    10:31 am November 21, 2018 Permalink

    Wow, a free throw discrepancy in favor of dooku? Color me shocked!



    • runningunnin.454
      10:37 am November 21, 2018 Permalink

      Duke was driving to the basket, Auburn was throwing up threes; so, there will be a disparity with the fouls.



    • Iamheasyouarehe
      10:40 am November 21, 2018 Permalink

      Looked like Duke didn’t shoot nearly as well last night.



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

      Look, Duke is really good this year, but they played out of their minds against us while we played about the worst we could possibly play. Take that game with a grain of salt.



  6. RealCatsFan

    Heading to the game in a little while with my daughters. Hope we get to see some exciting plays by the Cats. Wondering what the crowd will be like.

      Awesome! Have fun and cheer loud, and think of us poor schlubs stuck at work. (I’m recording the game for later.)



  7. runningunnin.454

    Our problem is we’re getting players that think they’re one-and-done. Seriously, whom do you think this year can play in the NBA. That’s the NBA’s fault because they pay for “potential”.
    And, I don’t want to pay for players like Arizona, Kansas, UL, Duke, and Auburn; and, I don’t want to have to give their fathers and guardians jobs like Washington, LSU, Missouri, and WKU.



    • RealCatsFan
      10:40 am November 21, 2018 Permalink

      Maybe if the FBI thing leads to a cleanup of college BB recruiting it will actually help us.



    • Iamheasyouarehe
      10:41 am November 21, 2018 Permalink

      I wouldn’t hold my breath hoping the NCAA will actually do something, unless it’s UK.



    • ClutchCargo
      10:56 am November 21, 2018 Permalink

      Here’s the thing, though. The FBI doesn’t care about cleaning up the NCAA, they are investigating a specific corruption case. This NCAA is going to be in damage control mode instead of dropping the hammer on a whole bunch of schools. They don’t have the manpower or the desire to investigate and shut down all of their cash cows. And UofL lost their title due to the hooker scandal, so we will see if they really get anything meaningful from the adidas scandal. I feel like the mere mention of UofL caused me to use the word “scandal” more than usual. 🙂

    Did you see Marques Bolden balling last night? If he’s playing like that, Duke is the odds on favorite for the NC. The title is theirs to lose; of course, if K doesn’t win…well, that would be failure of biblical proportions.



    • Iamheasyouarehe
      10:46 am November 21, 2018 Permalink

      He had pretty a good collection of talent the last two seasons and look what happened. Now this bunch is way more special but if they ever really get in foul trouble, that could be an issue. They are not going to play like they did against UK every night.



    • runningunnin.454
      10:52 am November 21, 2018 Permalink

      Yep, especially last year with the Marvin Bagley team, K underachieved. The pressure is on him this year; he has to win or…



    • Iamheasyouarehe
      10:54 am November 21, 2018 Permalink

      I read somewhere Duke fans were in an uproar and calling for him to stop recruiting one and dones.



    • ClutchCargo
      11:07 am November 21, 2018 Permalink

      Duke getting in real foul trouble would require the refs to call a lot of fouls on them. Not happening. I think beating them will require keeping them from getting out in transition and making them play half court offense. Even then, better pack a lunch.



    • ClutchCargo
      11:10 am November 21, 2018 Permalink

      And I’m trying really hard to not be a hater. Duke is really, really good. As hard as it is for me to admit, they are actually fun to watch. There, I said it.



    • Iamheasyouarehe
      11:14 am November 21, 2018 Permalink

      I will only watch Duke if they are about to lose, other than that I cannot stand to watch them.



    • runningunnin.454
      11:35 am November 21, 2018 Permalink

      Iam, gonna be a tough year waiting for Dook to lose. If it happens, it’ll probably happen when we least expect it.
      Don’t think the Zags can do it today; their hotshot is out with an injury.



  9. Realme
    10:51 am November 21, 2018 Permalink

    First hour all about next year’s team instead of about the team that has a game in a couple hours. Why not focus on the current team for a while and let Cal worry about next year.



  10. runningunnin.454
    11:08 am November 21, 2018 Permalink

    Duke fans and even their mascot were waving bye as Auburn players fouled out…what an uncool, juvenile, and classless bunch. Nope, don’t want to be Dook…ever.



    • J-Dub421
      11:13 am November 21, 2018 Permalink

      Several years ago, Duke fans chanted orphan at an opposing player whose parents had died in a car accident. That’s all you need to know about Duke fans.

      Meanwhile UK fans give standing ovations to opposing players who have really great games.



    • runningunnin.454
      11:23 am November 21, 2018 Permalink

      Yep, Bubba Parham’s mother said the UK fans were really nice to them. Even back in the day when I was at UK, we always appreciated an outstanding performance by an opponent’s player.

      Love that about our fans.

    King of Christmas movies is “It’s a Wonderful Life”. Hard to believe it was a flop at the box office. And that’s the movie where I got my “Hee Haw”, not the TV show.
    I like Christmas with the Kranks, even tho’ it’s corny…Tim Allen on botox is too funny.

    Memphis won’t succeed in the tournament; they’re in a weak conference, and won’t be pushed every night.

    Funny last night, Bilas didn’t understand the +/- stat in the game; AND we had to put up with him slobbering all over Dook.

      I don’t know how you guys can watch, let alone suffer through the announcing.

      11:54 am November 21, 2018 Permalink

      Sometimes I have to hit the mute button; but, it was worth listening to hear Bilas totally misunderstanding that stat. LOL Dook grad.

    How’s Matt gonna act like he doesn’t know what the last caller was talking about in regards to a football transfer. Dude you teased it right before break, then get mad when dude ask you who it is. Matt you brought up that discussion yourself, so if you don’t want people to ask then just keep quiet. Stop with the little coy secrets,we are not in high school. I love you and all you do, but you talk down to people waaaay too much, and honestly it’s not a good look
