Matt crashed Tony Vanetti’s show with a Cayts sign

matt-cayts

It’s safe to say Matt’s pretty excited. Be sure to check us out on 630 WLAP in Lexington or on your iHeartRadio devices anywhere else. The KSR gang will be going live in 30 minutes for a two-hour special to celebrate, with a special appearance from the Turkey Hunter.

Use this post to discuss the show.

Let’s go Cats.

      Don’t underestimate the importance of experience. Brian Long has been “sitting” under the tutelage of Cal for three full seasons now. Show some respect and put him as the starting 5. The others will have to wait their turn.

      Is it just me, or does anyone else thing Brian Long won’t get any time at the 5? Probably more like a four-man rotation at the 4 (Lyles, Towns, Calley-Stein and Lee) with Johnson added to the rotation alongside most of those guys at the 5.

      I don’t know why everyone keeps putting Willie ahead of Dakari. I love him, but Dakari had taken the starting spot. Right now, you have to have the twins and Dakari as starting and the other two spots up for grabs.

      1) An. Harrison, Ullis, Aa. Harrison, Hawkins
      2) Aa. Harrison, Booker, An. Harrison
      3) Poythress, Booker, Lyles, Aa. Harrison, Willis
      4) Lyles, Towns, WCS, Lee, Willis
      5) Johnson, WCS, Towns, Lee
      Walkons

      The twins are locks to start, though if Ullis proves to be one of the best 5 players, he could start with them. Dakari and Willie will battle to start, but Lee or Towns could have a say in it. Poythress can have the 3 if he wants it, but Booker or someone else could get it. The 4 will be about lineups, but Lyles will probably have it unless we go small with Poythress or huge with Towns (depending on the best 5 players).

      Anybody think Willis could play the two some next year? He’s got a shot, he’s quick, and we would have like 3 guys behind him to block if he gets beat. #TallestTeamInCollegeBasketball

      I personally like the idea of poythress coming off the bench UNLESS he develops a shot outside or around 15 feet.

      My starting five:
      1. An. Harrison
      2. Aa. Harrison
      3. Trey Lyles
      4. Willie Cauley Stein
      5. Dakari Johnson

      Twins self explanatory but in this lineup Lyles becomes a matchup nightmare at the 3. Willie can run pick and rolls and stretch the floor without the burden of a thicker big pushing him down on the block, and provides a shotblocking presence needed when playing quick guards. And Dakari provides a solid post-up game while being about to contain they’re center.

    1) Andrew Harrison, Tyler Ulis, Dominique Hawkins
    2) Aaron Harrison, Devin Booker
    3) Alex Pothress, Devin Booker, Marcus Lee
    4) WCS, Trey Lyles, Marcus Lee
    5) Dakari Johnson, Karl Towns. Marcus Lee

      Depending on the play of Poythress and of Ullis, Towns and Lyles in particular, this could be the first time in Cal’s tenure that we start the season without a freshman starting.



    • Mc
      3:58 pm April 25, 2014 Permalink

      Personally, I think you need someone who can shoot consistently from 15+ feet out in this lineup other than Aaron Harrison. As a result, I think either Lyles or Towns will start (or both as the season progresses).

      i was just saying this to my son after dakari declared he was staying … rick probably told montrez “all those kids from UK will leave, making you the best big man in the country” (that would be the pitch anyways) … now they all stay and montrez is still behind them all

    Can we talk about the forgotten winner in all of this? Hey, Slice, wanna coach some of the best talent ever assembled on the way to #9 (hopefully)?

    With Coach O moving on, it’s great for Cal to have so many guys come back and the foreign trip (if he wants it this year) to make this year a little easier. With luck, the NBA will go to 2 years and Cal will no longer have to teach a whole new team every year. Go Cats!

    Hey Matt, lets play a game where you and Ryan choose teams (from the KY roster) and:

    a) debate who has the best team

    b) debate if there is a better player in the SEC than what’s on each team

    There are SEVERAL RIDICULOUS line-up combinations, but I keep thinking about:

    PG- Tyler Ulis
    2G- Aaron Harrison
    SF- Andrew Harrison
    PF- Karl Towns
    C – Dakari Johnson

    i agree that if the harrisons arrived when others did they are now gone. but i don’t agree that is a blessing. because their early arrival might also have meant 3 or 4 fewer losses and a championship.

    I hope this past season has help fans realize that placing these high expectations on this team can have negative effects. This team was not meeting the expectations that a lot of fans had at the beginning of the season and the players felt it from not only the fans but also the media. I hope fans stop and think about how unpredictable the tourney can be. We were not expected to make it far but made it to the championship game anyway and was almost bounced in the 2nd round from a Van Fleet 3.

    I’m really excited for next season because of the returning talent but I have learned from this past season to stay away from the hype and expectations and enjoy the ride.

      4:44 pm April 25, 2014 Permalink

      You’re right, but this is different. Last year, we were expecting too much of a bunch of players that hadn’t even played here yet. This time, we’ve seen what they are capable of. No reason not to be excited.



    • Patrick
      6:01 pm April 25, 2014 Permalink

      Don’t get me wrong, I’m excited as hell. I just know that ANYTHING can happen in March so that’s why I’m holding off on crowning us champs. However, I do feel confident that we will perform better in the regular season because of the experience.

    What’s the big secret about this big surprise game the Cats will play this coming season :

    It has been on this site in the comments section a few weeks ago and in my column two weeks ago , it’s in a tropical climate and will be played after the U of L game and before the SEC schedule starts in early Jan.

    A holiday special that Cal has set up for his appreciation of the BBN loyal support during the hard times last season .
