    Ha, ha Jared Lorenzen, Boy Of Love, isn’t creepy at all.

      The Vermont Teddy Bear Company makes a JL teddy bear, $875; of course, it won’t go through your front door.

      That’s one thing Jared Lorenzen has in common with the Teddy Bear.

      Idk exactly what y’all are talking about, but Real’s comment reminds me of The Office episode where Michael made an online dating profile and used the name Littlekidlover as his handle…bc he wanted everyone to know how he felt about kids 🙂

      Jdub I’ve been hoping that the fact we don’t hear anything doesn’t mean he’s struggling.

      BP he has a Valentine’s Day birthday and that’s what Ryan called him.

      I was watching Hey Kentucky last night and they had a commercial about his weight loss journey. He was pretty close to 600 lb apparently. That is hard for me to wrap my mind around. I hope he is able to get it under control. I think he is a very likable guy.

      It’s my favorite show ever, Dub



    • Realme
      10:34 am February 14, 2019 Permalink

      Well if there was a current commercial hopefully that means he’s still going. I hear about diets where someone just eats the same things and doesn’t get to enjoy food any more, which is how his sounded to me, and I don’t see how they can work long term.



    • J-Dub421
      10:46 am February 14, 2019 Permalink

      It depends on the person. I heard Reid Travis went on a pretty strict diet to drop 20 pounds at UK. Tom Brady’s diet is notoriously strict. A lot of athletes are pretty hard core.

    What’s up with SKJ…no longer with NC State? Do transfers practice with their new team? If they don’t, they can return to original school and play immediately…???



    • Iamheasyouarehe
      10:30 am February 14, 2019 Permalink

      I think he had to sit out this year.



    • Realme

      I feel like they can practice while sitting out, but I could be wrong. Wonder what happened.



    • runningunnin.454
      10:32 am February 14, 2019 Permalink

      Yeah he did. I just found it, transfers can practice with their new team…so that’s the end of that.

    “Richard”, the caller right now, sounds like a “Stay off my lawn” kind of guy. Bitching about our half court game.

      I’m not old at all; but, I don’t like the walk the ball up the floor, let the defense set up, and grind it out game, either. If you have a problem with fg%, you’ll lose 60% of those games.



    • Realme
      10:38 am February 14, 2019 Permalink

      I don’t disagree, young friend. It seems like every time they walk it up the court though, Cal is telling them to run.



    • J-Dub421
      10:43 am February 14, 2019 Permalink

      Cal is constantly yelling at them to RUUUNNN!!! He can’t do it for them though.



    • RealCatsFan
      10:47 am February 14, 2019 Permalink

      rg, the thing that makes me cringe the most is when they try to run time off the clock to set up a play. Seems like it almost never works. Just score and play defense dammit!



    • Realme
      10:50 am February 14, 2019 Permalink

      Now that part is definitely something Cal tells them to do at the end of games, drives me nuts. I rant at home like get off my lawn guy.



    • Iamheasyouarehe

      The pace of the UNCheat game was the most fun to watch game this season for me, especially since we won.

    Oh crap y’all. Abducted in plain sight is the craziest thing. This guy is right. The decisions made by the parents of the abducted girl are so bizarre.



    • RealCatsFan
      10:49 am February 14, 2019 Permalink

      I must have been on a phone call when they discussed that. Speaking of abductions, my daughter had the state troopers run down I-71 the same time she was out when they shot that dude who kidnapped and killed his girlfriend. They had a small child between them too. What the hell is wrong with people?



    • Realme

      A couple of days ago in Oldham County.



    • RealCatsFan
      10:55 am February 14, 2019 Permalink

      Happened on Monday. He abducted her from Ohio State’s Mansfield campus, and they were at a gas station in Gallatin County when someone saw her mouth “help me” and it was obvious she was in distress. State troopers ran them off onto Exit 14 in Crestwood, where the shootout occurred.

      How does the first person to see this on Facebook not call 911 immediately?

      “He knew when he left that he was going to kill her and kill himself or be killed by the police. And that’s why the Facebook post to his son talked about ‘I’m not going to be around. She’s not going to be around.'”



    • ClutchCargo
      11:50 am February 14, 2019 Permalink

      A few of the state troopers flew by me to respond to that. I saw all the police cars surrounding that vehicle, but didn’t know what had happened until later.

      11:33 am February 14, 2019 Permalink

      Yep, everybody should come back, except maybe PJ. And I have doubts he can drive the ball in the NBA.



    • J-Dub421
      11:39 am February 14, 2019 Permalink

      I think PJ will be good in the NBA, especially now that he’s a consistent outside shooting threat.



  11. J-Dub421

    Herro needs to show consistency in shooting for the NBA. Obviously he can shoot.



    • runningunnin.454
      11:34 am February 14, 2019 Permalink

      His shot is puzzling. Form looks so good. For a while he was shooting long…now he’s shooting short.

    Coworker had Drew Diener’s show on the radio yesterday afternoon, and he was talking about Louisville’s loss to Duke. It was kind of funny listening to him describe it. At one point he was talking about a key turning point when UL’s PG turned the ball over when he slipped on sweat on the floor. He said “Even Zion’s butt sweat was beating us last night.” Made me laugh out loud.



    • Iamheasyouarehe

      Actually the turning point was before that IMO.



    • RealCatsFan

    Weird, I wonder why SKJ left NC State. Apparently one of their other players got arrested for assaulting his girlfriend. That has nothing to do with SKJ though. He generally seemed like a good kid and didn’t get in trouble.

    • Realme

      Iam I think that his coach said he was not on the team any more last night.



    • RealCatsFan
      11:34 am February 14, 2019 Permalink

      Some kids have the physical talent but just don’t have the inner drive to get to the next level. I see it with the coaching that I do. You have to live and breathe whatever sport you are in to play it even at a lower level college, and not all kids are cut out that way. And that’s fine – everyone is different. Hope Sacha finds his “it” – he seems like a nice kid.



    • Iamheasyouarehe
      11:34 am February 14, 2019 Permalink

      I don’t think we’d have a scholarship for him. We have 2 guys definitely leaving (Reid & PJ), and (I think) one scholarship open this year, with three (so far) coming in next year (Maxey, Allen, Whitney).



    • ClutchCargo
      11:56 am February 14, 2019 Permalink

    Kyle Alexander is the 5 that Matt was trying to think of for UT. He is the player that Nick should aspire to be. Great shot blocker, and he can hit the midrange jumper. They will be tough.

    Mrs RCF will be in Gatlinburg for older daughter’s volleyball tournament, and the family of one of the other girls are big UT fans. She is really hoping that we win, otherwise she might have to kill them. 🙂

    Goldfish can live 20+ years, and will grow however big their environment lets them. I had some when I was a kid that lived 17 years and got to be about as big as my hand.



    • ClutchCargo
      12:00 pm February 14, 2019 Permalink

      Yep. My daughter had a couple of goldfish a few years ago, along with a smallish algae eater. The goldfish kept growing to the point where the algae eater looked like a delicious meal to one of them. The algae eater eater swam around with the tail of the algae eater hanging out of its mouth for about a day until it became obvious it wouldn’t go down. He just spit that sucker out and they went about their business after that. 🙂

      My kid came home from a birthday party with a little goldfish in a bowl. It was about an inch long. I dropped it in my 38 gallon community tank in the basement. Now, five years later, the danged thing is six inches long and has eaten most of the smaller fish in the tank. It needs a new home – soon!
