    I ate Shrimp Cup Noodles before the game Saturday… since they won, I’m thinking about eating Shrimp Cup Noodles before every game until we lose.

    My favorite part about Saturday was hearing about our NBA guys talk about the game. With DeMarcus’ awesome troll, John Wall arguing for Cal, and TJ and AD’s conversation during their game, the haters need to shut up about saying our one and done guys could care less about their school. And wasn’t it Rick Pitino who said you can’t build a relationship with those guys in the 8 months they are here?

    I would like to ask the BBN to stop calling Louisville Little Brother, and here is why. When I compete against my Little Brother, I want to crush him, but otherwise I root for him. I never root for Louisville. I hate Louisville, and therefore find the term offensive to all Little Brothers out there. Louisville is like the creepy guy in high school who was jealous that all the hot chicks like the starting quarterback. Maybe we can brainstorm a new name here, but please, stop calling them a name that shows a little compasion. I want more hate.

    Cal outcoached Rick.

    I thought we were done when Julius came out the second time with cramps and it was clear he was going to not play or play poorly.

    Aaron Harrison is the only player I trust late in the game at the FT line. Andrew and James are killing me late at the line. Julius is a little better – usually hits 1 of 2 late.

    Matt,
    I am glad to see you make some of the local sports reporters so uncomfortable. I’ve been following the Cats since the Runts and have always been astonished at how so many of those so called reporters get away with spewing their hatred and biased opinions of UK under the disguise of “fair and balanced” or “we report, you decide.” Keep putting the hammer down on the media and especially UL, Pitino and Jurich.

    I had cramps my junior year of HS football the first season I started on both O and D. Bananas every day solved it. My football coach started for UK during its 10-1 season – great advice. But I probably had three time the body fat % of Randle. Not sure if that is enough for guys with that high muscle %.

    Matt, you have to mention the fact that Pitino didn’t even come to the press room to answer questions, and only came out of the locker room and talked to just a handful of reporters. How low class was that.

    Matt Jones secretly LOVES Rick Pitino, in the same way Rush Limbaugh secretly loves Barack Obama. A comic book level villain that makes for great radio. Every time Rick ducks a presser and whines about the refs, KSR gets a little more fun to listen to.

    I read the Courier Journal yesterday, and there as no mention of Pitino’s ‘NBA-Style’ press conference. But, the best I could tell, the presser consisted of Ricky Three-stacks, Paula Deen, Bob Valvano, Howie Lindsey, and Terry Meiners. You can bet there were some tough questions asked at that one.

    I agree about the defense the 2nd half. Randle’s greatest weakness is his lack of overall court awareness. He has really bad tunnel vision on both defense and offense.

    Rick Pitino spends all his breath at the half & post game blaming his team’s failures on the refs? That completely contradicts his book, “The One-Day Contract: How to Add Value to Every Minute of Your Life,” written about humility.

    And all the pregame Fuss about Russ was disappointing. For a preseason Top 5 player in the country, he wasn’t won of the 5 best on the court on Saturday.

  72. BHoop33
    10:28 am December 30, 2013 Permalink

    To me the guards played better because with Poythress at the 4, they have more room to drive. Poythress plays more perimeter than Randle. He sits in the corner making it pretty much 4 out 1 in with Willie. When the guards penetrated, Poythress cut to the basket and got himself open for the lob or dump off pass. If we can find a way for Randle to do that same thing, it’ll help. Yes we want Randle in the post a lot, but maybe we should run a couple sets for him to cut to the basket from the perimeter like Poythress did in this game. Great game all around though. I’ll give props, that Russ Smith dunk was both surprising, and nasty.

    Last game I went to was Pitino’s first game at Rupp coaching Louisville. The atmosphere was the same as Saturday. I’m so glad fans came out. I’m having to avoid stress as much as possible because of a medical problem so I did not start out watching the game. I kept up with game on my phone. Once we started winning, I couldn’t turn it on because as the commercial says it’s only ridiculous if it doesn’t work. I turned it on once I felt like we had it in hand. I taped the game and watched it after. So proud we won!!!

    Biggest game of the year and my wife and I were told to sit down bcuz the people behind us couldn’t see. Don’t get me wrong rupp was rockin but that’s ridiculous. The elderly man in front of me stayed seated throughout and covered his ears when rupp got loud. This is why we won’t be back this year. I’d rather watch it on tv then deal with that.

    Having to deal with losing Gorgui Dieng and Peyton Siva is much harder than any Louisville fan ever admitted it would be. Siva was a great play-maker and could get deep into the lane and either score or dish for wide open shots. He was relentless at penetrating in the lane. He also paced his team well, and was a tremendous vocal leader. Gorgui Dieng was the defensive anchor and was almost as good as any rim protector in the nation. He also was THE interior offense for Louisville, and had a tremendous ability to draw out defenders with a great stroke from 10-17 ft.. Both guys had unique talents that made them two of the top three players on the team.

    Listening to Matt this morning talk about all the UK greats walking around before the game made me think of an idea for “new Rupp.” They should have “Legends Row” of about 10 seats that set courtside for former UK players to set in the first row. Would think it would be motivating as a player to look over and see the legends of UK basketball that came before them. Maybe useful as a recruiting tool, but most kids won’t know the older players, but put J. Wall, Cousins, Noel, MKG, Prince, etc…in those seats and they’ll recognize them. GO CATS!!!

    Matt,

    Please address the “ceiling” for Twins/Randle. Preseason I think you thought Twins were sure fire NBA stars, Randle perennial All-Star.

    Today I think twins eventually make NBA rosters, but I don’t see either being real impact players on NBA level. They are solid to me, not spectacular.

    Randle I think can be a solid NBA PF, but I don’t think he’s ever as good as THE REAL T JONES who is a better shooter/ballhandler/double double machine..

    Thoughts?

    • Delk for 3

      I disagree about Randle and Terrence Jones. Terrence Jones is 3 full years ahead of Randle. They are different players, but Randle would absolutely bully Terrence Jones on the block. He will bully most players on the block. Randle is a MUCH better rebounder and I think can score at will on the block. He more than likely will develop a serviceable jumper as well by the time he’s T-Jones’s age. T-Jones is hardly a double-double machine. Randle will average a double double in the NBA.



    • Kidnut
      11:14 am December 30, 2013 Permalink

      Randle can be an NBA All Star, the guy is a beast. I can see Aaron Harrison having a good NBA career but Andrew has a ton of work to do. He has no left hand, almost lost the ball several times on Saturday against UL press.



    • Eric
      11:29 am December 30, 2013 Permalink

      Delk 4 three,

      I think TJones is one of the historically most under-appreciated players in UK history.

      In 2nd half of Iowa St. Game when Royce White was STRAIGHT PUNKING US OUT, TJones was the first one to step up and challenge White. (Interesting to note Houston drafted both, Jones now starts, White out of the NBA.) Jones is averaging 10 points and almost 7 boards in 25 min per night.

      TJones had 50 points in blue white game, with a future NBA All Star Anthony Davis guarding him.

      Did eveyone forget the nasty crossover/dunk on the whole team in Hawaii Jones freshman year?

      Randle Stuggled against NC Bigs.
      Randle struggled against Baylor Bigs.
      BEHANNAN DENIED THE BALL TO RANDLE TWICE. Go watch the tape. Behannan was being physical with Randle, and Randle just gave up trying to post him up.

      TJones 6’9″ 255
      Randle 6’9″248

      I think we’ve bought the hype on Randle. Don’t get me wrong, the dude is good/great college player, but read what the NBA Scout that was at the game said. That Go-Left Spin Move will get figured out quickly in the NBA.

      I admit I’m a T-Jones guy. When Matt says that it was the Freshman that won us the title, it grates on me, because Lamb, Jones, Miller aren’t getting their proper due…

    Actually you are more likely to cramp the lower your body fat percentage is. Therefore the BETTER you are conditioned, the more likely you could be to cramp.

    Tracy Wolferson actually misheard you guys and reported Julius Randle was headed to the locker room for Crabs. She later apologized.

    To me, it sounded like Cal took a thinly veiled jab at Randle’s practice efforts, when asked about the cramps, during his post game with Tom Leach.

    Someone should make a 3 Wildcats shirt in the vein of the 3 Wolves t-shirt. Speaking of 3 wolves, here is another product on Amazon that is picking up steam in the reviews section.

    Kenny Walker can tell us all about cramps…they come, they go, you play through them. Randle has some lower leg injury history, though, and I hope it’s not related. It was really hard to watch him on the bench for most of the second half in the last big game before the conference schedule starts.

    Tony Delk used to cramp all the time. He was in impeccable shape at UK, so I doubt it is conditioning in this instance.

    I honestly thought we would still win without Randle. He is our best player, but we are so much more than Randle. In reality, he has only the third most field goal attempts on the team. Aaron Harrison has the fourth most attempts, but even he is becoming more and more of a go-to guy on the offensive end. We really only lose out on offense when he’s off the floor, because Poythress can replace his rebounding and actually is more effective as a defender.

  202. Really Matt, u have to wave your arms at the producer? Get a little more high tech, like maybe smoke signals.

    Never really understood the hate for Nickelback. Not that they’re my favorite band or anything, but I can think of worse. Is it just a “fashionable” thing to hate them, or is there some real reason for it? Inquiring minds want to know.

      They are a pretty Vanilla and cookie cutter made songs type of band. They aren’t great and they aren’t terrible, but they do make a ton of money, so there is where the hate comes from.



  206. Delk for 3

    Cramps just come from low body fat, high muscle tone, and not enough hydration. Athletes like Randle have to drink more fluids than they can even imagine.

    I dated a UL fan for about two and a half years (she was a huge b*tch) and every time Kentucky beat Louisville, I pretended like I didn’t know that the game had happened, and it drove her NUTS. Oh man, I would get such entertainment out of that. It actually made her madder.

    The TV announcer was wrong when Andrew took the first 2 shots.
    He said he missed the basket, but I believe both shots were actually lob attempts to Willie.
