    I hope Coach Martin goes full crazy tonight.

      I think that’s going to happen.

      We need Frank Martin fatheads for the eRupption Zone. Reason being that his team is probably so terrified of him that flashing pictures of him when they attempt a FT is sure to throw them off. 🙂

      Only if it helps us win.

    Looks like W Va has their own Tripper Allen; he tripped an opponent last night while sitting on the Mountaineers bench. W Va was blown out 81-50, and the guy’s name is Routt…hah ha.

      Did the officials do anything? Or even see it?



    • runningunnin.454
      10:11 am February 5, 2019 Permalink

      Yeah, they threw the guy out of the game; of course, he actually was never in the game…a sub.



    • J-Dub421
      10:29 am February 5, 2019 Permalink

      Yet nothing happened to Allen until after the third time he tripped someone.

    Done with Bilas. So bogus to go around pointing out some absurdity and unfairness in the sports world and defend other equally egregious examples.



    • Realme
      10:11 am February 5, 2019 Permalink

      And his response to Megan Calipari was way over the line.



    • RealCatsFan
      10:13 am February 5, 2019 Permalink

      I’m not a Twittler, but there was a dude who kept claiming that Bilas was not directing his reply to Megan.



    • RealCatsFan
      10:18 am February 5, 2019 Permalink

      … and I didn’t see it, but it sounds like Ellen Calipari won the internet with her response last night. 😀



    • Realme
      10:18 am February 5, 2019 Permalink

      It was very clear he was talking to Megan. That guy was an idiot, and repeating himself 15 times didn’t make him correct. Megan quoted Jay’s tweet of the article and complained to the Oregonian that they used a picture implying Cal was part of the cheating. This Brock person, just said something like “Yeah, do better”. Jay hit reply and it directed his reply to the Oregonian, Megan and Brock. The only one of the 3 that has any logical basis for being the comment Jay was replying too was Megan’s complaint.

      I am steaming at Matt’s transparent attempt to protect Jay. I know it wasn’t entirely clear in the KSR article, but if you saw the tweet in context on Twitter there was no question.



    • J-Dub421
      10:31 am February 5, 2019 Permalink

      Rabble3X is a Duke fan, so he can stupidly try to defend Bilas all he wants, but I’ll still think he a troll and an idiot.



    • Realme
      10:34 am February 5, 2019 Permalink

      That explains his desperate attempt to disbelieve the obvious.



    • Iamheasyouarehe

      Matt is such a fanboy and Bilas knows that.



    • J-Dub421
      10:37 am February 5, 2019 Permalink

      Matt will side with Bilas because Jay sometimes hosts the show for him.



    • rabblerabblerabble

      Was it something I said, J-Dub?



    • ClutchCargo
      10:46 am February 5, 2019 Permalink

      Bilas is becoming more condescending and arrogant as the years go by. He used to be one of the best, but now he just comes off as a prick for no reason.



    • J-Dub421
      10:47 am February 5, 2019 Permalink

      I know you’re a Duke fan, so run alone to a Duke site. I don’t troll on Duke fan sites, so do us the same courtesy.



    • J-Dub421

      *along.

      “Alone” works, too. 🙂



    • Iamheasyouarehe

      Alien abduction?



    • RealCatsFan
      10:55 am February 5, 2019 Permalink

      Yep, with the requisite anal probes. 🙂



    • rabblerabblerabble
      10:56 am February 5, 2019 Permalink

      I’d go to a Duke site, but as you can imagine they’re all full of miserable, entitled jerks like Jay Bilas. And me.



    • J-Dub421
      11:15 am February 5, 2019 Permalink

      Then you should fit right in.



    • Iamheasyouarehe

      Yep, alien abduction with deep anal probes.

    Brock Steele sounds like the name of a p- o- r- n star.



  5. runningunnin.454
    10:14 am February 5, 2019 Permalink

    Cal wasn’t even talking to the guy, he was talking to the guy to his left in the UMass jacket. Grassanola was behind Cal, and talking to the guy to his right.



    • RealCatsFan
      10:19 am February 5, 2019 Permalink

      and the real shooter was over on the grassy knoll. 😉



    • runningunnin.454

      Back, and to the left.



  6. Iamheasyouarehe

    Man I really like the Calipari family. You take on one you take them all on.



    • RealCatsFan

      Those Italians stick together. 🙂



    • J-Dub421
      10:36 am February 5, 2019 Permalink

      I almost feel sorry for people who go against the Calipari girls. Almost, but not really because it’s usually some idiot who deserves their wrath.



    • Realme
      10:38 am February 5, 2019 Permalink

      Yeah, they’re great. I think Erin goes a little overboard with the “I have a PHD in neuroscience” thing, but Ellen is deadly in her subtlety.



  7. RealCatsFan

    We really need to take care of business tonight and not let USC have any daylight. They are 6-2 in SEC play, in spite of an awful out of conference record. This will tell us a lot about this team’s level of focus. I heard that the spread is around 17 points – I think I would go with the spread in this one. Don’t think the Cats cover it, although they did it and then some against Vandy – although I think Vandy has given up. USC is in the running in the SEC and still has a lot to play for.



    • runningunnin.454
      10:26 am February 5, 2019 Permalink

      They’re a hard team to figure out; they were blown out by Wofford, but only one game behind us in the SEC.



    • Realme
      10:29 am February 5, 2019 Permalink

      Yeah that spread sounds like it was based on the non conference part of their schedule, and not the SEC games.



  8. Iamheasyouarehe
    10:24 am February 5, 2019 Permalink

    Why should KSR give Bilas a platform to try to gloss over his screw up?



    • Realme
      10:25 am February 5, 2019 Permalink

      Because Matt protects his buds.



    • Iamheasyouarehe
      10:28 am February 5, 2019 Permalink

      BINGO! And he is the worst name dropper.



  9. Realme
    10:25 am February 5, 2019 Permalink

    My favorite last night was all the photoshops where people put a Krazyzooski photo into the article, or a photo of Bilas into articles about fraudulent journalism.



  10. J-Dub421
    10:40 am February 5, 2019 Permalink

    Then they should have blurred out the other people in the photo, or cropped it Jay. It was a cheap shot at Cal who wasn’t mentioned in the article and isn’t involved in any of the FBI scandal. Jay of all people should know that a lot of people just read the headline and see the photo and don’t read the article. The media keeps trying to drag Cal into the scandal, and the BBN is pissed.



  11. Realme
    10:42 am February 5, 2019 Permalink

    Okay, so “do better, Jay” was so unreasonable that it was the one comment Jay HAD to respond to last night? This is so dishonest.



  12. runningunnin.454
    10:44 am February 5, 2019 Permalink

    Yeah, sure; elitist Dookie, we’re not buying it.



    • J-Dub421
      10:45 am February 5, 2019 Permalink

      How else is one to interpret “have someone read it to you”?



    • runningunnin.454
      10:47 am February 5, 2019 Permalink

      How many times has he said damn? Piqued.



    • ClutchCargo
      10:49 am February 5, 2019 Permalink

      If Bilas wants ice cream next time he comes to Rupp, he should have to stand in the line.

      Do we still have any players who can poop some ice cream for Jay? 😉

      He was backtracking better than Michael Jackson moonwalking.

    Now KSR has put up the Jay Bullsh!t apology.

    If you’re a dude, don’t try to mansplain sexism to me. You aren’t a woman, you have no idea.



    • Realme
      11:33 am February 5, 2019 Permalink

      I don’t know that Jay would have said “have someone read it to you” because she was a woman. He probably said it because he wanted to insult someone who was annoying him, and he thinks he’s smarter than everyone else, so that’s where his mind goes. However, when a man is so publicly condescending to a woman, it’s impossible for me to feel it any other way than sexist.



    • J-Dub421
      11:40 am February 5, 2019 Permalink

      I was talking about the guy on the phone saying that he didn’t see how it was sexist if Jay had been saying “have someone read it to you” to Megan. He was a man and hasn’t been constantly questioned his whole life on everything like he can’t possibly know what he’s talking about because he’s a woman. I’ve had that crap happen to me 1000’s of times.



    • Realme
      11:42 am February 5, 2019 Permalink

      I know, I’m just saying the caller could be right that Jay’s motivation wasn’t her gender. Doesn’t make what he said okay.



    • runningunnin.454
      11:45 am February 5, 2019 Permalink

      Did you catch Chris Mack’s halftime interview with ESPN’s Allison Williams? Now there was some blatant condescension. It’s on the internet; the halftime panel were having fun with it.



    • Realme
      11:48 am February 5, 2019 Permalink

      I saw someone comparing him to Billy G, but didn’t actually watch it. Probably won’t, haven’t had all the irritation from Bilas out of my system long.



    • runningunnin.454

      LOL, how did they hear me?

    Related to what Matt is saying about the Louisville Orchestra – I have seen them several times and they are EXCELLENT, and way underappreciated by the people of Louisville. If you ever have a chance to see them, do it. I take my daughters any chance I get. Everyone has their favorite type of music, but there is no denying the skill, talent and devotion it takes to get that many people playing together to make music that sounds awesome.
