      me either but I did have to watch something else for a bit and come back to it. I always dvr and start about 30 mins late. I catch up by halftime and have to stall a bit after that. When its hard to watch, I skip forward 30 secs and keep an eye on the score



    • ClutchCargo
      10:20 am February 12, 2020 Permalink

      I do that DVR thing, too. But I don’t check the real-time score unless I’m just done with seeing a bunch of bad play and I strongly suspect they’re going to lose.



    • RealCatsFan
      10:21 am February 12, 2020 Permalink

      After all the other comebacks we have had, I was less worried than in the past, but the fact that they beat LSU by 9 was in the back of my head. I was very relieved when their hot streak began to cool. At times it looked like we were shooting on one of those oval state fair midway hoops, and they had one that was 24″ diameter.

      Man, I guess we just have to make Vince the first 2.5 million dollar non-coordinator in the country. That’s what Bo Pellini is getting at LSU (I’ve read 2.5 and 2.3, but what’s another $200,000 to you and me???).

    So I’ll answer a question that was posed to me after I had to log out yesterday:
    From Realme: “Chris! What happened with Mark Buerger / SMST? Leach brought the show back and he decided not to stay?”

    Yeah, I was listening to the podcast that afternoon, and he came back for 1 more show and at the VERY END announced he was leaving. He mentioned something about having enjoyed the time off & spending it with family (some previous Sundays I think, not just the one right after the show got cancelled). He mentioned Warren Zevon going on Letterman after he was diagnosed with cancer and that Zevon said “Enjoy every sandwich”, then Mark got choked up and told us all to “Enjoy every sandwich”.



    • Realme
      10:16 am February 12, 2020 Permalink

      I guess good for him, but I don’t think the show will work now. The other 3 are too mild. Need a ranter / leader.



    • Realme
      10:17 am February 12, 2020 Permalink

      Thanks for the explanation, I just kept seeing Larry say he would miss him and was confused, especially after listening to the beginning of the show where he was thanking Tom for bringing them back.



    • chris gettelfinger is not walking through that door
      10:17 am February 12, 2020 Permalink

      Yes, Mark was very funny, and he and I are fellow long-suffering Bengal fans who still can’t get over having been THIS close to 2 Super Bowl wins but losing.

    MashburnFan and Wrongeous1 were nowhere to be found last night after UK made their comeback. Wonder if they woke up in a major spoon storm this morning?



    • chris gettelfinger is not walking through that door
      10:27 am February 12, 2020 Permalink

      Where in the world did he get that nickname for those of us he perceives as Cal sycophants? He calls us the “Cal lover wolfpack” or some such. Is it a reference to the NWO Wolfpack (that’s a rasslin’ thing)?



    • StillBP
      10:44 am February 12, 2020 Permalink

      He used to call us something along the lines of Cal Loving Bitches (or whatever) but when I told him I’m a female and asked if ‘bitches’ was supposed to be an insult he changed our name to wolfpack LOL



    • 4everUKBlue

      Someone needs to tell him the wolfpack is NC St.

      He’s grasping for anything to get under peoples’ skin.



  6. J-Dub421
    10:24 am February 12, 2020 Permalink

    I don’t get why people like Trashburn and Wrongeous1 want to run their mouths when we start poorly. We’ve started slow most of this season and usually come back. Why freak out if it’s happening again? We’ll come back in the second half, so chill. Of course, both are stupid and hate Coach Cal, so neither will ever give him credit for all the halftime adjustments and comebacks (or for player development).



    • ClutchCargo
      10:27 am February 12, 2020 Permalink

      That’s just how trolls operate. To them it’s worth getting a shot in early, just in case we don’t come back and then they can laugh at all the pissed off real fans. Or just disappear if we do come back and win.



    • Realme
      10:27 am February 12, 2020 Permalink

      Sometimes I wonder what these idiots thought at the beginning of this era. People used to call local shows and say the 2009-10 team should be called the Comeback Cats, because they would do the same thing. When we are all just thrilled to be relevant again, and to go back to the final four the next year, were some people so angry about doing well then? I don’t remember.



    • RealCatsFan
      10:29 am February 12, 2020 Permalink

      And it’s not like we are the only team that is having slow starts and big first half deficits. I think it happens more often than not this year. Guess it’s all the parity. Basically, it seems like if you have a big first half lead you need to be VERY worried.



    • StillBP
      10:46 am February 12, 2020 Permalink

      since Wrongous couldn’t use his typical ‘Cal doesn’t make adjustments, he can’t coach’ he went with ‘Cal can only make adjustments against bad teams’ HAHAHAHAHA it’s trying so hard to find something to complain about, I’m guessing his life is miserable.



    • Realme

    • 4everUKBlue
      10:57 am February 12, 2020 Permalink

      It had never dawned me what a hypocrite mashbumfan is until last night. He was making fun of our fans for using the floor design as an excuse for our poor play while at the same time making excuses for Vanderbilt. Then I realized he’s been doing that on a regular basis.



    • Realme

      Isn’t Mashbum the one who makes stupid Bball arguments, and then defends football complaints with the opposite logic?



    • StillBP
      11:01 am February 12, 2020 Permalink

      This is Wrongous1’s comment after we won. How hard must he work to find complaints?

      Well Cal Lovers Wolfpack I see that the assistant coaches for Ambassador Calipari made some good adjustments in the 2nd half! You can do this against a team that has won 1 conference game in 2 yrs but not against good teams!

      I noticed that Michigan State is not ranked in the AP 25 this week after being #1 to start the season. Can you name the last time that happened? If you guessed Ambassador Calipari in the 13/14 season, then it would be β€œWinner, Winner, Chicken Dinner!!!!!

      In Cal We Trust It’s NBA or Bust!

    • StillBP
      11:02 am February 12, 2020 Permalink

      and then later he said: We shall see Cal Lovers Wolfpack about the crying in the next month! I can hardly wait to go on the attack!!!!!

      He can’t wait until we lose so he can talk smack on KSR. How pitiful is your life if that’s what you “can’t wait” for??



    • RealCatsFan
      11:13 am February 12, 2020 Permalink

      I still haven’t figured out if he is an actual disgruntled UK fan who is living in the past, or a troll from another fan base pretending to be a UK fan.

      I had an early theory that it was actually Rick Pitino, because of his hatred for Cal, but he was still posting while RP was living in Greece, and I think Ricky had other things on his mind at that point. πŸ™‚

      even if you’re disgruntled, but deep down that’s still your team, don’t you want them to win? Wanting a team to lose just so you can argue on message boards tells me you are not a real fan of that team.

    Part of me wants to feel a little sorry for Vandy, since they are so pathetic last year. But then I remember back when they had The Meathead coaching them, and the way he used to whine all the time. And Stackhouse is a former Tarhole, so I kind of have to hold that against him. Oh well, eff ’em. πŸ™‚



    • ClutchCargo
      10:58 am February 12, 2020 Permalink

      I will always have a soft spot in my heart for Vanderbilt Med Center, but screw their football and basketball teams. They exist to be beaten up by the rest of the SEC. Stackhouse seems ok, for a Tarhole.



    • RealCatsFan
      11:00 am February 12, 2020 Permalink

      A lot was made about Stackhouse never saying anything while on the sidelines the fist time we played them. He let loose on the refs a couple of times last night, and I actually heard him speak in a presser after the game. Mostly generic coach-speak.



    • ClutchCargo
      11:04 am February 12, 2020 Permalink

      What was he supposed to say, really? They were playing well enough to keep it close and it was just a matter of time before we woke up and put them away. It was a little odd to see him so calm, though.



    • chris gettelfinger is not walking through that door
      11:12 am February 12, 2020 Permalink

      Don’t forget he played with Rasheed Wallace when Wallace purposely elbowed Andre Riddick in the temple and got Walter McCarty thrown out of that Elite 8 game that we may have won otherwise.



    • chris gettelfinger is not walking through that door

      I’m not really mad at UNCheat for that one, either. They did what they had to do to win and advance, as much as I hated to see it.



    • RealCatsFan

      I’m mad because they were probably cheating back then as well.

      Well, in hindsight… that’s almost certainly true.



  10. RealCatsFan
    10:45 am February 12, 2020 Permalink

    IMO, the thing that keyed our run was moving the ball better with passing, rather than dribbling around and trying to score one-on-one. I think we only had 2 or 3 assists at the point where we were down 14.

      I dislike UConn much more strongly than Wisconsin. They have won several titles, and their coach was a known cheater who went unpunished. He was a grumpy old codger as well. And they knocked us out of at least two very possible national titles.



    • ClutchCargo

    I dislike Wisconsin now. They basically lucked out and had two good seasons, and now their fans think they’re on the same level as UK and Duke. They’re not. It was fun stealing Tyler Herro from them last year. They’re still salty about it.

      Yeah, it was nice to steal Tyler Herro and listen to them whine. But I truly don’t care enough about them to hate, or even dislike them all that much. I’m kind of like that with Louisville, to a much lesser extent. Mouthy fans are one thing, but that’s more about me being annoyed with those individuals than anything else. I don’t work with or live near any obnoxious U6 fans these days, so take that FWIW.

    I’m going to sound like an old fuddy duddy, but the song that Shannon just played sounds exactly like ALL of the other songs that my kids listen to. I honestly don’t know how they can tell one from another.
