    Last night went to see an 8th grade kid playing varsity basketball; put up 40 points. Ranked as high as 2nd SG in the ’24 class behind a kid from Canada, and ranked 6th by coast2coast preps. Half expected a ball hog; but, nope, played some PG, shared the ball, and hit the open man. They threw every defense at him, zone, man-to-man, and box and one.
    Not really athletic; but, high basketball IQ and uses the angles well.
    He’s 6’0″; hopefully has a 3-4″ growth spurt but he has time, only 14.
    Could Kelly Coleman’s 4,337 point record be in jeopardy.

      Travis Perry. KSR had an article about him a week or so ago. Avg 21 pts/game as a 7th grader. Last I checked averaging 26 this year. Scored 26 against Madisonville North Hopkins, a top 5 ranked Ky team.

      rg he went for 39 against Union County last Friday in Morganfield. I wanted to go but it was Valentines Day…so I didn’t. Mrs Bluehender didn’t think it was romantic enough..

      Missed your reply this morning; women, huh? I had to go by myself last night; of course, it wasn’t Valentines Day though.
      Biggest thing I noticed was the kid’s composure; watch him play, and you would think he’s a senior…or a freshman in college.
      I would really like to get him…and the Sheppard kid, too.

    Still trying to find one person besides KSR guys being paid by them to say the Ketch is good. I want to try it, but my friends and spouse refuse to go with me.



    • J-Dub421

      Do they not like seafood? If the concern is that the seafood won’t be fresh, I can put that fear to rest. Louisville is a major shipping hub and the main air hub for UPS. We get the freshest seafood that’s not directly on a coast. (I know you’re in Lexington, but it’s only and hour drive from Louisville so you should also be able to easily get fresh seafood.)



    • Realme
      10:43 am February 21, 2020 Permalink

      I wouldn’t ask non-seafood people to go with me, it’s that everyone I know that has eaten there says it isn’t good.



    • ClutchCargo
      10:43 am February 21, 2020 Permalink

      It is possible to get really fresh seafood in KY (there is a seafood shop in E’town that has a fishing boat at Dauphin Island, AL and drives it up multiple times per week), but there are also plenty of seafood places that just use the same old frozen stuff you can find anywhere. Ketch could be one of them. The KSR guys endorsing anything edible is not very persuasive to me. lol



    • Realme
      10:45 am February 21, 2020 Permalink

      Exactly Clutch. I figure it’s like Joe B’s. A local place that people go to because it’s there, but not actually good food (except for that breadstick).



    • J-Dub421
      10:45 am February 21, 2020 Permalink

      Ah, I’d trust word of mouth on that one then.



  4. J-Dub421
    10:34 am February 21, 2020 Permalink

    I disagree that the one-time transfer rule will hurt our football team. We’re good now and they guys who come here seem to really want to be here and have bought it to what Stoops and company are selling. I think we’ll get more transfers in than out now. Go Cats.



    • Realme
      10:37 am February 21, 2020 Permalink

      I look at getting guys to be patient and stay ready for their chance as the coaching staff’s problem. If someone wants to Kahlil out of here, then they probably weren’t going to do much here anyways.



    • J-Dub421
      10:40 am February 21, 2020 Permalink

      Agreed, and no one is a one and done football player anyway, so that’s moot there. (I still just want to slap Kahlil’s family for being stupid and giving him bad advice.)



    • runningunnin.454
      10:40 am February 21, 2020 Permalink

      It will hurt smaller schools more.



    • ClutchCargo
      10:45 am February 21, 2020 Permalink

      I feel bad for the smaller schools that find diamonds in the rough and develop those guys to the point that they get noticed and scooped up by the bigger schools. That could have been us just a few years ago.



    • ClutchCargo
      10:46 am February 21, 2020 Permalink

      This is also why it’s critical to have somebody like Vince Marrow who really builds relationships with these kids. It’s not like we are tricking them into coming here or anything.



    • J-Dub421
      10:50 am February 21, 2020 Permalink

      In basketball, if a guy transfers from UK over playing time… Well, they probably weren’t getting playing time for a reason. Other than that, we’re Kentucky and we have Coach Cal, so we’ll take whatever players we want (within reason). That’s pretty much how it’s always been though, so tough luck to everyone else.



  5. runningunnin.454

    When we miss shots, we’re not very good. Now that’s the in-depth analysis I appreciate.



    • Realme

      Looking at all the analytics, you might be right, lol.

      That’s almost as astute as the “well, it would have been a great play call if it had worked” analysis our former OC used to give us.



    • Realme
      11:08 am February 21, 2020 Permalink

      Speaking of intelligent analysis, apparently LG&E wants us to know that if it’s cold outside, and we have the heat on… we should make sure our doors are closed.



    • runningunnin.454

      Damn, I better go check.



  6. J-Dub421
    10:45 am February 21, 2020 Permalink

    We missed shots in the first half against LSU because we were too keyed up. The guys seemed like they were pressing too much, and almost all of our misses were long (off the back of the rim). Once we settled in, the shots started to fall.



    • runningunnin.454
      10:47 am February 21, 2020 Permalink

      If we’re shooting long, we’ll be okay…missing short is a problem.



    • CrystalBall
      10:59 am February 21, 2020 Permalink

      runningunnin454. Rupp used to say missing them short was the worst. Meant you weren’t ready to play.



    • ClutchCargo
      10:49 am February 21, 2020 Permalink

      Those floaters in the lane that we never seem to miss, all missed early on. We looked shocked that they weren’t going in. I know I was.



    • J-Dub421
      10:55 am February 21, 2020 Permalink

      The pace seemed a little frenetic, for us and LSU. The difference was that we forced LSU into taking bad shots most of the game with our defense. We had better ball movement in the second half, but seemed less rushed and more controlled.



    • RealCatsFan
      11:07 am February 21, 2020 Permalink

      Regarding fkoaters not going in – why doesn’t anyone use the backboard anymore? It it not cool?



    • runningunnin.454
      11:16 am February 21, 2020 Permalink

      They should use the backboard. Bill Walton always used the board, even from 10-15 feet. Iowa has a big guy, Garza, that uses the board well. I guess it’s not cool.



    • RealCatsFan
      11:22 am February 21, 2020 Permalink

      I was watching the Oregon / Arizona St game last night, and Walton and Pasch were doing the game. They brought a comedian on there with them who was doing a pretty good Walton impersonation. I was cracking up. I know Walton drives a lot of you up a wall, but I think he is hilarious. At least when he is not calling a UK game, that is.



    • runningunnin.454
      11:27 am February 21, 2020 Permalink

      CB, that’s right, I do recall Rupp saying that.



    • ClutchCargo
      11:28 am February 21, 2020 Permalink

      Walton is entertaining if I don’t really care about the game. Which, in the case of nearly all Pac-12 games, it’s kind of like that for me. So maybe he’s not so bad after all. 🙂

    EJ can guard Kerry Blackshear.



    • runningunnin.454
      11:10 am February 21, 2020 Permalink

      If EJ doesn’t get hit with the touch fouls. I watch Azubuike at Kansas; and, he “bumps” guys off him 3-4 times moving to the rim, initiating the contact, and he never gets called for it…he knocks the defender back 2-3 feet, and that’s an offensive foul.



    • J-Dub421
      11:15 am February 21, 2020 Permalink

      We get called for a ridiculous amount of touch fouls.

      How much does Zion weigh? Like 285 lbs? I forget because I haven’t heard it from an announcer for at least a couple of days.



    • runningunnin.454
      11:31 am February 21, 2020 Permalink

      Yep, you push a guy back 2-3 feet to get your shot, and that’s not a foul? Ridiculous.



    • ClutchCargo
      11:34 am February 21, 2020 Permalink

      As long as you don’t try to hit the guy with a chair, it’s all good at Kansas. 😉

    Well, great to know that my family member who gets better help from weed for his depression than any drug a Dr. has ever prescribed will not be helped by that idiotic bill at all. There is no reason for marijuana to be criminal. Alcohol does so much more harm.



    • J-Dub421
      11:22 am February 21, 2020 Permalink

      Thousands of people die from alcohol every year. Meanwhile it’s impossible to overdose on marijuana. You’d have to ingest or smoke your bodyweight in weed to OD. You’d never get close before passing out and sleeping it off.



    • RealCatsFan
      11:29 am February 21, 2020 Permalink

      But actually smoking weed is NOT good for you. The unfiltered smoke and carcinogens are actually worse than smoking cigarettes. Ingesting it in other ways is much safer.



    • Realme
      11:31 am February 21, 2020 Permalink

      Of course our legislators think they are the experts on what it should be used for. And edibles? Really? A gummy bear is medicine, a vape oil isn’t? Why in the world is it not like any medication? Your Dr. should be able to decide if you need it and why, and it should be dispensed like any pharmaceutical. So stupid to over complicate it. Of course I just think it should be legal, but I am infuriated that they are close to making me worry less about him getting arrested for something that helps him be a human, and they come out with this idiocy.



    • Realme
      11:33 am February 21, 2020 Permalink

      RCF there is vaping, and there is smoking via a bong so that the water helps filter. And it’s not as bad as cigarettes because you don’t smoke “a pack a day” of weed.



    • Realme
      11:37 am February 21, 2020 Permalink

      Also, like with CBD… If you take it in via your digestive system, your liver has to filter it out like any medication, so that’s a factor too, for a regular user.

      Smoking anything is bad, but this isn’t the 60’s. There are edibles, tonics, sodas, vaping, even dermal patches now that can deliver marijuana. (A friend showed my a website for a place in Vegas, and we were laughing and shocked at the variety of products available.)

      Years ago when I worked the general assembly and was around the house floor every day I heard that Bobby Richardson, who was speaker of the house, used pot for his glaucoma. He always had a pipe in his mouth and rumors were that he mixed the pot with his tobacco and smoked it while acting as speaker. Not saying it’s true, but that rumor was rampant.
