    I think we’ll win another title and go to at least two more final fours under Cal.

      We missed the final four last season by overtime to a team we were playing for the third time. We missed the final four in 2017 by a last second shot to the eventual champion.

      Yeah, picked up a UK Football poster at the local Kroger the other day, and Mrs RCF told me I should have gotten an extra one in case we beat Florida again and we need to tape one up on our neighbor’s front door (who is a huge Gators fan 🙂 ).

      I want a Kash poster. I have to see if the UKAA will mail them like they did the bball poster last year.

    I feel like I have heard Matt discuss this “drop off” in recruiting thing more than any other topic ever, even bad food and bad music.

      Technically there has been, but only to Duke, and Duke hasn’t done anything with them. Eventually the players will figure it out and stop wasting their time with Duke.

    • J-Dub421
      10:45 am July 22, 2019 Permalink

      I can’t remember. Orton has long been a dude who can’t seem to stay out of his own way.



    • ClutchCargo
      10:46 am July 22, 2019 Permalink

      If it is clear enough what you are trying to say, I don’t see the point. And if the people directly involved with UK athletics are good with Orton, who am I to hold a grudge. Some people just need to let it go.



    • J-Dub421
      10:54 am July 22, 2019 Permalink

      Yeah, I’m over Orton. Water under the bridge.



    • RealCatsFan
      11:13 am July 22, 2019 Permalink

      I posted this on the other thread about him, but my lasting memory of him was when he landed hard in a game and was writing on the floor – someone said something like “get up” to him and he said “I can’t, MFer!” But the funniest thing about the video was that the dude was using his phone to record the replay on his TV, and there was a little kid yelling in the background. When Orton opens his mouth to yell at one point, there is a scream in the background, and it makes it look like he was screaming like a little girl.

    Orton was just an immature kid who was hearing from his family and hangers-on his whole life that he was the next coming of Shaq. He didn’t handle it too well when he had to work for PT against players like Cousins. If you coddle your kids too much, this is what you get. I think Cal kept him because he had already committed prior to Cal coming to UK. If Cal had been there for a few years, do you think he would have recruited a player like Orton, considering his attitude that the attitude of his parents? I doubt it.



    • ClutchCargo
      10:51 am July 22, 2019 Permalink

      Yeah, Orton was one of those BCG recruits who were good enough to keep around. I can’t see Cal seriously recruiting him, though.



    • RealCatsFan
      11:07 am July 22, 2019 Permalink

      I think Orton would have been one of those kids who get a lot of interest from UK early on, and then they just drop recruiting him. Cal has had a number of these, and in a lot of cases it turns out to be a bullet that was dodged. That is one thing about this staff that I commend – they know how to root out the turds when it comes to personalities and character.



    • J-Dub421
      11:15 am July 22, 2019 Permalink

      Agreed. In was reading an interview with DMC a couple days ago, and he was talking about being back in Lexington, and having Orton on his team. Anyway, DMC said something along the lines of, “He’s still the same crazy DO,” (about Orton). If Boogie thinks you’re kinda crazy, you might be kinda crazy.

    If Matt can’t remember a couple good dunks from Darius, that’s on him.

    Ryan’s forgiveness problems come from his Indiana blood he still claims. That’s why he will never be a true Blue Blood UK Brother!

      Haha!

      On a serious note, I hope Ryan reads this:
      “…but if you do not forgive others their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses.”

    It seems like every new UofLOL football coach talks about what terrible shape the program is in. Maybe not coming right out and saying those exact words, but implying it.

    Again, Petrino is a terrible person, but a tiny part of me (buried deep) loves him just a little because he trashed U of L’s football team for at least 5 years.

      Kudos to Jurich for giving him not one, but two chances to really screw it up royally.

      Petrino better have saved his money, because I don’t think anyone else will hire him.

    I’m in late, but no, no, no, to Matt AND Ryan about the guy getting fired in Iowa. I don’t know Iowa law, but I know that for federal, that guy has NO case unless he can prove they violated a federal law. For example, he could claim that they fired him because of his age (over 40…ADEA) even though they claimed it was the emails (and they would be guilty of what they call pretext if he proved that).

    In a right to work state (I don’t know if Iowa is or not) you can be fired for any reason at any time if it does not violate a state or federal law. You can be fired for insubordination in a state job just as much as a private sector job, and if there is an Iowa law that says different, Matt should have cited it. I don’t know where he gets the idea a state employee has more freedom of speech than a private sector employee. I give Ryan more of a pass because he’s not a lawyer or an HR guy.

    How can Matt not know this?
