    I went from way to go Nate, way to go Nate to Dam it Nate. Then i realized just how good a game the kid played. So WAY TO GO NATE.

      One of the turnovers wasn’t really his fault, and he recovered to make a great block, although the blind zebra called a foul on him. (Was that the high-stepping ref?)



    • J-Dub421
      10:19 am February 19, 2020 Permalink

      Nate played well overall. He’s usually on the receiving end of some horrifically bad calls.



    • 4everUKBlue

      What was the high stepping all about? Let’s see how can I get on TV…….

      10:27 am February 19, 2020 Permalink

      It has to be harder to run like that, so he is doing it on purpose, but who knows why. If refs were to (gasp!) answer media questions, someone could try to find out.

      Kick off your shoes and throw ’em on the floor

      Of course they spoiled it. I had to look up the lyrics and log in.

      And who can forget:

      Turns out music is not the only area Matt is not good at.



  5. RealCatsFan
    10:15 am February 19, 2020 Permalink

    So when we got up by 15, how many of us just KNEW that they would come back to within a few points of us? At this point it is kind of a tradition. Welp, as long as we keep winning…



    • Realme
      10:21 am February 19, 2020 Permalink

      I thought they had it until Ashton got hurt. Watching them break that press without him was scary.



    • J-Dub421
      10:23 am February 19, 2020 Permalink

      Ashton totally got fouled on that play (badly enough that even Bilas thought it should have been a foul), and the ball went out of bounds off the LSU player. Naturally there was no call and the refs gave the ball to LSU.



    • RealCatsFan
      10:23 am February 19, 2020 Permalink

      Hope it’s just something minor. Nick scared me too, coming down on that ball. What a freak thing. I was glad to get out of there without anyone else getting dinged up.



    • runningunnin.454
      10:25 am February 19, 2020 Permalink

      Need to steal a play from John Brannen (Cincinnati coach, formerly at Northern KY). Line up all 5 guys out of bounds like a football line of scrimmage with 4 wide outs. Break all 4 guys long with two coming back to the ball.



    • J-Dub421
      10:26 am February 19, 2020 Permalink

      Same. No more injuries please. We barely have enough players as is.



    • chris gettelfinger is not walking through that door
      10:43 am February 19, 2020 Permalink

      I’ve seen lots of players come down on someone else’s foot (like Jeff Shepherd), but I think that’s the first time I saw one come down on the ball like that.



    • ClutchCargo
      11:50 am February 19, 2020 Permalink

      I had a Nerlons flashback the instant he hit the floor. Glad to see the thumbs up that he was ok.



  6. RealCatsFan
    10:16 am February 19, 2020 Permalink

    Can it be said that this team embraces adversity? Maybe that is why they play so well on the road.



  7. Bluehender
    10:19 am February 19, 2020 Permalink

    South Carolina was a fluke win too. They hit a bank shot 3 at the buzzer to beat us…



    • J-Dub421
      11:22 am February 19, 2020 Permalink

      South Carolina has done pretty well in conference. That loss doesn’t look too terrible.



    • Bluehender
      12:01 pm February 19, 2020 Permalink

      No it doesn’t look terrible but it was a lucky shot that beat us.



  8. runningunnin.454

    Jay Bila$$ was rooting against us all night; I had to mute him. Needed to get him some purple pom poms and little purple panties.



    • Realme
      10:24 am February 19, 2020 Permalink

      I thought he was pretty complimentary, but I could do without the incessant “that was a foul, they didn’t call it”s.



    • J-Dub421
      10:24 am February 19, 2020 Permalink

      I’ll give him a little credit for going in on the crappy officiating all night.



    • runningunnin.454
      10:29 am February 19, 2020 Permalink

      Yeah, but he was calling for fouls on us all night; the refs missed some on LSU, too.



  9. Realme
    10:22 am February 19, 2020 Permalink

    We haven’t lost a single game by double digits. I find that encouraging.



    • J-Dub421
      10:25 am February 19, 2020 Permalink

      The ability to win ugly when everything isn’t going well is an important skill to have. Just look at UNC. They keep choking and losing.



    • RealCatsFan
      10:28 am February 19, 2020 Permalink

      Auburn game was 9, and that was just because we were fouling at the end and they were hitting the FT’s.



    • runningunnin.454
      10:35 am February 19, 2020 Permalink

      LSU has some close losses, too. Only one bad loss to ETSU by 11; LSU should definitely be in top 25…even tho they cheaters.



  10. RealCatsFan
    10:26 am February 19, 2020 Permalink

    Maybe the high stepping ref is playing the “:floor is lava” thing that the kids play.



    • ClutchCargo
      11:19 am February 19, 2020 Permalink

      I’m going with he’s trying to close rings or maximize his steps on his Fitbit.



  11. Bluehender

    Bilas becoming Billy Packer..that’s a good comparison



    • RealCatsFan
      10:44 am February 19, 2020 Permalink

      Maybe Nick will get a dook player in a scissor hold and we can hear Bilas saying “What is Richards doing to Matthew Hurt?”



    • runningunnin.454
      10:49 am February 19, 2020 Permalink

      Ugh, another ACC homer. “What is he doing to Wojo” ha ha ha.

      Wayne Turner just blew by Wojo and scored again.

    • J-Dub421
      10:32 am February 19, 2020 Permalink

      I can’t believe I’m saying this, but…. Dan Dakich. Online he’s a troll, but he is a good announcer.



    • RealCatsFan
      10:34 am February 19, 2020 Permalink

      I actually think Dakich is pretty good when he is not in troll mode. He does know the game.

      I like Hart, if not just for his KSR references. 🙂

    “He played through contact,” is code for “He got fouled with no call.” It’s said often about our players.

    Matt is right about Cal’s post game interviews. The other night you heard a bunch of thumping and zippers in the background. I can only imagine what he was doing. I wonder if Ellen was listening. 🙂



  17. secrick
    11:08 am February 19, 2020 Permalink

    Is it just me or does it seem like the other coaches are starting to be a little more vocal with the players now when they come to the bench.



  18. J-Dub421
    11:25 am February 19, 2020 Permalink

    Nick was credited with 6 blocks but it felt like he had 20.



  19. J-Dub421
    11:31 am February 19, 2020 Permalink

    We stand alone atop the SEC now and control our own destiny. I think we’ll win the SEC regular season outright. We are continuing to improve and come together (don’t want to peak too early). Once the NCAA tournament starts we have a better shot than most to win the title. Cal is a proven tournament coach and no one will want to see us in their quarter of the bracket. We’re road warriors capable of scrapping and winning ugly, and we have a lot of weapons, plus we’re a good defensive team. Let’s do this!



    • runningunnin.454
      11:35 am February 19, 2020 Permalink

      I think we’ll win the next 4, and lose at Florida…the refs really take care of them down there.



    • ClutchCargo
      11:47 am February 19, 2020 Permalink

      I’m not ready to concede anything to UF. They really don’t scare me at all. I know we have struggled historically down there, but I like the competitive nature of this team.



    • RealCatsFan
      11:53 am February 19, 2020 Permalink

      I worry about Florida more at home than I do on the road. Yes, the refs will favor them down there, but this team seems to rise to the challenge of playing on the road. I want us to clobber Auburn at home.
