      The former #2 three-point shooting team in the country was nearly single digit percentage last night. It was so bad that their center decided to join the clankfest late in the game.

      Louisville fans are sounding a bit like UK fans talking about slow starts and letting our foot off the gas. The Johnson kid is a really good freshman, but I wouldn’t take him over Maxey. No way.

    UGH KSR has me worried enough to have checked Twitter before bed last night and as soon as I got up today. Losing the Big Dawg would be almost like losing Cal. He’s the program’s swagger.

      Matt is stressing me out so bad. Glad he’s putting the pressure on UK to fix it though. He should never have been that far down the list as far as pay rate for important non-coordinators.

      But what mistakes is he talking about? I know how much MSU is offering. Is Mitch not coming off the dime?

      And of COURSE the coordinators were going to want more. It’s just like raising the minimum wage to $15 an hour (or even worse, $22 like Tom Steyer wants). All of a sudden you’re paying cashiers management or assistant management wages (at least in some businesses), so guess who else has to get a raise?

      I think there is a lot of had wringing and freaking out going on that may not be justified. They are acting like UK has just treated the Big Dawg like garbage and now we’re going to lose him to somebody who is going to treat him right. What?? He’s done a great job and some other school wants to try to get him. That’s just how it works.

    Not to break up all the Vince talk, but Auburn won yet ANOTHER overtime game last night. If we get up on them by 10 or so again, or even 20, we HAVE to keep the proverbial foot on the proverbial neck.

      And, Auburn was at home. And, yes you’re right, RM. Continue to run the offense, play the opponent, not the clock.
      When you get them down, you have to kick them.



    • RealCatsFan

      It’s also ironic that songs like “Bad Moon rising” and “Blue Moon” made the soundtrack for “An American Werewolf in London”, but “Werewolves of London”, did not. Must have been some issue with copyright or royalties.

      ha thanks 4ever. I’m trying to ignore him more and respond less, so I don’t want to be lead wolf.

      The usual vagueness Chris, he didn’t say anything else besides what’s already mentioned on here, just with a lot of urgency and drama. I think maybe Matt was directly trying to help Vince out here by putting them on the spot. IDC, whatever it takes.

      I don’t think Matt is affecting Barney’s decision making in the least. I’m sure Mitch had all intentions of matching MI ST offer before Matt started in about it. KSR did recently post the update saying we “essentially” matched their offer.

      He was pushing really hard this morning. Usually when he does that, it’s so his many followers (there’s listeners, and then there’s his followers, who love to obey his instructions) will make a fuss (like with the sports gambling).



    • ClutchCargo
      11:26 am February 13, 2020 Permalink

      I actually agree, BP. I’m just playing along and going with the logic that Matt is making a difference in this. We didn’t get to this point as a football program (since the Stoops era began) by constantly screwing up personnel decisions. All the past dumb football personnel stuff is what caused UK to have to build this thing in the first place.

      That was the title AZ stole from us with the help of the refs. They shot 41 free throws to our 17. AZ shot 17 free throws in overtime alone and did not score a single field goal in OT. The refs literally handed them that title.

      Anthony Epps drilled a three at the buzzer to send us to OT. It was a beautiful shot.

      Some in Bama say โ€œawlโ€.

    Matt saying “rrrruuurrrrrraaalll” sounds like an elephant seal’s mating call.

    I hate when the person in front of me reclines too, get out of my face. But that’s the way they’re designed, unfortunately.

      When that happens, it’s time to also recline I guess.

      I don’t get why airline seats recline at all. They only recline about an inch. What’s the point?

    I have often thought that being a 7 footer who isn’t good enough to play pro basketball and isn’t rich would be a terrible existence.

      I know a doctor that is 6’8″. He has a t-shirt that says, “No, I don’t play basketball, do you play miniature golf”.

      So, to a midget, is it miniature golf or just golf?

      It’s regular golf, but they have really big balls.

      I always wonder about that when I’m in some hotel shower with a really low showerhead. If I have to practically be a contortionist to fit under the showerhead at 5’9″, what do really tall people do? Also, short people can fit under a tall shower, but not vice versa. Put the showerhead higher.

      I know a tall man who said he always would reply โ€œNo, are you a jockey?โ€

      Way off-topic, but part of the Cal father/son camp is taking a tour of the players’ dorm. It’s crazy to see the shower room with the shower heads so high up. The whole place is built for 7′ people, including the furniture.

      Friend of mine I used to work with was about 5’1. He had an athletic build, and one year he grew a little mustache which made him look vaguely Hispanic. So one year we were hanging around at the Derby Festival Chow wagon downtown drinking beer, and he had a couple of little teeny-bopper girls convinced that he was a jockey who was going to ride in the Derby. He even faked an accent, and one of them got his fake autograph. ๐Ÿ˜€
