    The Bobby Knight love fest is making ill, my dad has a sports show on and one analyst said he’s done more for players after leaving IU, unlike any other coach. I feel confident in saying he’s done nowhere near as much as Cal.



    • runningunnin.454

      I think he always sent them to a chiropractor after he wrang their necks.

      10:04 am February 10, 2020 Permalink

      I can’t say I ever liked BK, but I did respect him as a coach. He is no doubt a gold-plated jackass, and I can see why many hate him. Media love fests for pretty much anyone make me ill.



    • Realme
      10:58 am February 10, 2020 Permalink

      I just don’t get why they can’t mark an occasion like that without acting like he was a good guy. He wasn’t. Also, looked like he almost threw hands at Vitale. That would have been crazy.



  2. runningunnin.454

    Ha ha, did Drew actually bet on the Oscars? Silly man, didn’t he know a non-English foreign film with subtitles had to win…eventually?



    • RealCatsFan
      10:20 am February 10, 2020 Permalink

      Don’t know if I can get myself to sit through 2 hours of Korean dialogue and English subtitles, so I will probably never know the genius behind the Oscar winner.



    • runningunnin.454

      Seriously, has anyone here actually seen it?



    • ClutchCargo
      10:37 am February 10, 2020 Permalink

      Some of those Korean movies aren’t half bad, if you’re just dying for something to watch and have 2+ hours to kill. I’m a fan of horror/thrillers, and I ran across “Train to Busan” on Amazon Prime a couple of years ago. I hate subtitles, but I was interested enough to get past that.

    Also watched UNCheat blow a 13 point lead with 3 mins to go, Ol Roy didn’t even try to slow them down coming up the court, Jones just kept driving for layups. And Roy’s boys shot 21 – 38 foul shots. Funny thing in that game the ref’s called 27 fouls on each team, but TV Teddy missed the call that gave duke the game.



    • Bluehender
      10:05 am February 10, 2020 Permalink

      How did he miss that? Unreal…but like you said, ol Roy did his part to put TV Teddy in that spot..



    • 4everUKBlue
      10:08 am February 10, 2020 Permalink

      I never watch other teams but when I saw duke losing by 13 I had to watch. That was the worst obvious non call I’ve seen since the blatant shot clock violation when we played Wisc.



    • RealCatsFan
      10:13 am February 10, 2020 Permalink

      I actually felt dirty for wanting UNCheat to win. Had to take a shower afterwards. Was anyone in America surprised that Kount K would get the ref to swallow the whistle at a key moment?



    • Bluehender
      10:14 am February 10, 2020 Permalink

      Agreed..



    • ClutchCargo
      10:14 am February 10, 2020 Permalink

      The worst thing (to me) about the way that ended was that we had to see “classy winning” Count K instead of the grumpy, sore loser Count K that shows his true character.



    • 4everUKBlue

      Not even a little surprised RCF.

      K inherited his character defects from Bobby.



    • RealCatsFan

      Wish K would get caught choking someone so we could be rid of him. 😉



    • ClutchCargo
      10:21 am February 10, 2020 Permalink

      I don’t think K has to use his hands to choke somebody, just his mind control. It would be hard to prove.

      Tre Jones’ intentional missed FT looked a lot like De’Aaron Fox’s. The NBA said Fox’s should not have counted.

    Couldn’t believe the trolls that were showing up on the threads EVEN AFTER WE BEAT Tennessee at their place. Wrongeous1 was the most prominent. The heavy rains must have flushed him out of his hole.



    • ClutchCargo
      10:17 am February 10, 2020 Permalink

      Yep, that idiot just craves attention. I try not to give it to him, but I can only take so much. There were a lot more reasonable comments than normal from other people, though.



    • StillBP
      10:30 am February 10, 2020 Permalink

      I’m tired of his crying, I’m just ignoring Wrongous1 from now on. I think I responded to 1 of his comments after the game but that’s it. He’s a broken record of wrongness.



    • RealCatsFan

      Do I get credit for inventing that one? 🙂



    • StillBP

      I didn’t know who came up with it, but yes, good one RCF. Appropriate and funny!

    10:18 am February 10, 2020 Permalink

    When UT got within 4 late in the game I slammed my fist on the footstool and started ranting. The dog headed for the bedroom to hide under the bed. The cat just looked annoyed. Mrs RCF is still mad at me for scaring the dog.



    • runningunnin.454
      10:24 am February 10, 2020 Permalink

      We made 13-9 UT look like a top 5 team. This team has no killer instinct…we get up 10 and quit.



    • RealCatsFan
      10:34 am February 10, 2020 Permalink

      RG, that’s probably what actually set me off. But when you look across the landscape, it seems to be pretty common for teams to let big leads slip away. UL vs UVA, dook vs UNCheat, LSU vs Auburn are just a few examples.



    • RealCatsFan
      10:35 am February 10, 2020 Permalink

      And I still like this team’s moxie on the road. They probably play better outside of Rupp. Which might help us, because we will probably be playing far away from Rupp in the NCAA Tourney.



    • ClutchCargo
      10:39 am February 10, 2020 Permalink

      Maxie and Quickley have some Tyler Herro in them. They enjoy being the villain on the other team’s court, to the point that it makes them play better. Hagans, too, if he can just avoid the turnovers.

    I really think that’s Slater’s new burner acct.

      Sorry that was meant for as a response to Clutch’s comment about wrongous1.



    • ClutchCargo
      10:29 am February 10, 2020 Permalink

      Could be. But I always felt like Slater was a genuine mom’s basement-dweller. This other one comes across more like a bitter old fart with too much time on his hands.

    That Fulkerson headband… my wife said it looks like the kind girls wear. That guy is the dookie-est non-dookie ever. So punchable.

      My daughter said the same thing! Dude looked like some goofy white dude that you see playing in a YMCA league. My nickname for him became “RecLeague”. Most annoying player since Grayson Allen.

      11:24 am February 10, 2020 Permalink

      Someone asked on the Liveblog if he knows what a headband is for. I think it was Mrs. TT actually. It looked like a shoe string, and it didn’t seem to serve any purpose. It didn’t seem to keep his hair out of his eyes much if at all, and it certainly didn’t look like it would absorb any sweat.



    • Realme
      11:35 am February 10, 2020 Permalink

      If you have long hair, those skinny bands are good for keeping all the little wispy bits out of your face when you’re trying to do something active. Or, now, if you are a dude that wants to be the most tool looking member of TN bball.

    Songs in movies? Well, I could do without hearing the Bob Seger song from Risky Business. Ever. Again.

    American Werewolf in London had a great soundtrack, but oddly enough, the theme song for KSR was not one of them.



    • runningunnin.454

      Nope. Best we can do is the text machine, when it is working. I am resisting Twitter with every fiber in my being. I have enough social media rabbit holes to burn time in.



    • ClutchCargo

      I don’t think they even see the Show Thread while on the air anymore. I have had a Twitter account for a few years and have never tweeted anything. I use it to follow a handful of media people, the local school district, etc. Strictly informational stuff.

    • ClutchCargo
      10:51 am February 10, 2020 Permalink

      That could also explain the swallowed whistles.

      K, in his mind: “You don’t want to blow that whistle, ref.”
      Ref, under his breath: “I don’t want to blow this whistle.”

    • chris gettelfinger is not walking through that door
      11:21 am February 10, 2020 Permalink

      Booker shouldn’t have said that regardless of his age, but if someone chooses to dress immodestly, they can’t regulate the age of who is going to ogle them or not. I’m sorry, but when I’ve channel surfed and come across a gymnastics meet lately, it looks like they’re wearing thongs. And modest dress applies to men as well as women.

      As a dad of two daughters, I wonder sometimes who is oogling my kids when they play volleyball wearing the form fitting tights (also known as “bun huggers” in some circles) that are used in that sport. Kind of strange that they don’t just wear athletic shorts like basketball players wear. I guess I should be glad that they don’t play professional Women’s Beach Volleyball. :O



    • chris gettelfinger is not walking through that door
      11:43 am February 10, 2020 Permalink

      Haha @ Clutch!

      I’m surprised I’m not getting shredded. Look, Booker is responsible for his own behavior, as we all are, no doubt. I forgot to add that to what I said about him. But we’ve taught our daughter to dress modestly (I Tim. 2:9…and again, read in context this verse applies to men and not just women) and there have been some battles at times over what is appropriate and what is not as a Christian.



    • ClutchCargo
      11:46 am February 10, 2020 Permalink

      I went and watched the video where Booker made that comment. It was even creepier than the description of what he said. I would be surprised if he still has a job.



    • RealCatsFan
      11:58 am February 10, 2020 Permalink

      Like I alluded to, the outfits worn by gymnasts have got nothing on what the women’s pro beach volleyball players wear. Bikini’s that are barely there. I am surprised that more “wardrobe malfunctions” don’t happen with the way they move on the court. I know it’s a sport played outside in the heat on the beach, but wow, I would think that most of them would want to wear a little bit more “down south”.



  16. J-Dub421

    Going back to the Bob Knight thing – if he has really changed in his old age, I am willing to let bygones be bygones and let him have his moment in the sun with the fans. If so, good for him.



    • RealCatsFan
      11:14 am February 10, 2020 Permalink

      Also, I made this comment on the thread about Knight. Now that IU has had BK back at Ass Hall, it is beyond time for the UK Administration and Athletic Dept to get off their asses and get Tubby’s jersey hung in the rafters. Tubby is getting up there too. We don’t want it to be a memorial service rather than having him standing there soaking it in. Mitch Barnhart, are you listening? (Doubt it!)



    • ClutchCargo
      11:17 am February 10, 2020 Permalink

      He is pretty senile now, so I would say he has changed. Regardless, it’s good that he got to do that while he is still around. My first take was that it was sad that his “handlers” may be just parading him around Ass Hall, and he had no real say in it. I was probably mistaken about that.



    • chris gettelfinger is not walking through that door
      11:40 am February 10, 2020 Permalink

      I agree totally about Tubby. His coaching was a huge part of that natty. He coached K’s pants off in the Elite 8.

    One good think about dook beating UNCheat – this will help to ensure that UNCheat doesn’t sneak into the tournament. This might be the post-season ban that they have been deserving for a long, long time. Since Emmert didn’t have the balls to do it, Karma stepped in.

      And don’t forget Wisky; they are now saying 12 Big10 teams in the tournament. I bet we’re one game away from Wisky or Indiana.

    Again, they need to bring Tubby in way before they think about inviting Rick back.

      Welp, I don’t think the Tubster is going to get that home and home…

      I think Rick has burned his bridges here, no sense pretending otherwise. He did a great thing in resurrecting UK basketball and he has his name in the rafters for it. Looks like we’re even.

    I agree with your list RCF, but Louisville should be higher up, and add Wisconsin at the end.

      Yep, and Wisky beat Ohio State yesterday; and I hate cheering for OSU.

    I always heard Hoosier is from, “Who’s your daddy, I don’t know, who’s your daddy,….”

    Sad to hear about MKG. I was hoping he would find success as a great defender and rebounder similar to what Rodman did back in the day. The league just went in a different direction.
