    Interesting that EJ is working out with Tony Delk; is he going to play guard in the NBA?
    If Tony’s going to make him a knockdown three shooter, he’s got his work cut out for him.

      I wonder if he wanted Tony to speak for him and say he’d probably stay in the draft. At least we’ll know about him and Nick and Blackshear by the end of tomorrow…

    • runningunnin.454
      10:06 am May 28, 2019 Permalink

      Didn’t think of that; you may be right. I said couple of weeks ago, I think he stays in the draft.

      Anyone think Bolden’s decision to stay in the draft will affect EJ one way or another?

    • runningunnin.454
      10:13 am May 28, 2019 Permalink

      I doubt it; I don’t think he wants to come back to UK.

    • How about Hampton’s decision to play down under? I never heard he was considering that, but I don’t follow recruiting to the level some folks do. I can’t keep up with all the names, reclassifications, etc.

    • runningunnin.454
      10:16 am May 28, 2019 Permalink

      Yeah, it had been mentioned that he was considering playing pro overseas.
      Hope it works out for him; certainly more refreshing than Wiseman and McDaniels tied to momma’s apron strings.

    • Realme
      10:18 am May 28, 2019 Permalink

      Yeah, crazy. If this works out for Hampton he might start something. I think the fact that he took UK out of his final list was a (unintended) courtesy, so all the news reports aren’t that he chose NZ over UK. I just typed chode instead of chose, and now I want that to be a word.

      If only they were intelligent enough to realize how much their negativity hurts our program.

      Their problem is usually rooted in Cal hate or OAD hate, so they probably are happy if their ugliness messes things up.

    • Iamheasyouarehe
      10:26 am May 28, 2019 Permalink

      Hating a coach as successful as Cal is totally beyond my understanding.

      If the story about the Memphis teen doesn’t shut them up, nothing will.
      There are more important things in life than winning championships.
      Who thinks K would have ignored that request?

      rg, what story are you talking about? Must have missed it.

      The story about the Memphis teen that was killed in a drive by shooting. The story on KSR before the show thread.

    • RealCatsFan
      10:50 am May 28, 2019 Permalink

      I’ll have to go back and read it. Here in Louisville, there was a horrible story about a kid who got hit by a stray bullet and died. He was an honors student, and was determined to make something of his life. The violence in west Louisville is terrible even when it is between gang members, but when an innocent bystander who is working his way out of that situation gets killed, it is far worse.

    • Iamheasyouarehe
      11:03 am May 28, 2019 Permalink

      I like winning as much as anyone but I also realize winning a game is not the most important thing in life, it troubles me that so many fans don’t get that. Cal gets it and sets the players up to be successful in life as young men, not just basketball, I think all our coaches are on board with that and that makes me more proud to be part of BBN more than anything else.

    • RealCatsFan
      11:20 am May 28, 2019 Permalink

      I have a strong suspicion that the fans who think winning is the absolute most important thing are lacking something elsewhere in their lives, and have to find some type of satisfaction in UK winning. I get a little pissed and grumpy when we lose, but usually within a day afterward I am ready to move on with life. There is so much more in life than winning or losing a game. Case in point – the club volleyball team I coach didn’t have a lot of success from a wins/losses perspective. We were undersized and lacking in skills in a few positions. We got better, but still probably didn’t win as much as some parents would have liked. So we had some grumbling from some of the parents, but most of them were thankful for the growth their daughters had and the fun they had with their teammates. In the end, I’m going to miss the personalities of the players more than the wins and losses.

  2. It’s a somber day in central Bama today with the tragic passing of Auburn play by play announcer Rod Bramblett and his wife after a car accident Saturday night. Terrible. It was a 16 year old who hit their vehicle. The last I heard the police are still investigating, but they say there was no alcohol involved.

      I enjoyed his call of the Aub vs Bama game. I watched the game on TV.
      Saban had to know his kicker didn’t have enough leg; maybe he didn’t know they could run a FG attempt back…ha haha.

    • RealCatsFan

      That is a horrible and tragic situation. Very sad to hear that. 🙁

    So let’s assume EJ doesn’t come back. IMO, we will resemble the 2016 team, where we were thin down low. That team would have been so much better if Dakari had returned for another season.

    • Realme

      Blech. I hate not having a scary big. Either a bruiser or a shot blocker, well one of each.

    • RealCatsFan
      11:59 am May 28, 2019 Permalink

      Yep. We damn well better have some knock down outside shooters, because you know they will pack it in down low and hang all over Nick. And to make matters worse, they are moving the 3-point line back.

    Tom Petty’s great, I miss him so much.

  5. RealCatsFan
    10:26 am May 28, 2019 Permalink

    I’m kicking myself in the butt for not going to see Tom Petty and Joe Walsh in Cinci a couple years ago. The concert was right before he passed, so last chance to see him. Mrs RCF went with her sisters, and I had a busy week at work coming up, so I wasn’t planning to go. I was actually looking at tickets the day before the show, but couldn’t find anything close to them that was affordable. Oh well.

    • Iamheasyouarehe
      10:30 am May 28, 2019 Permalink

      Saw Petty four times, great show every time. Saw Joe Walsh with the James Gang in the 70’s with the Edgar Winter Group, strange pairing.

    Seems like Matt has some kind of personal issue with Michael Bennett. He is always pretty disparaging of him when he mentions his name. Not a good look, Matt.

      He’s a retired minister and likes to taunt athiests, so I think someone was offended enough to report him.
