    It looks like business just picked up for next season! I listened to a little bit of the spring game, and it sounds like we are much better offensively, seems like I heard the air raid siren more than last year’s spring game.

    I am glad to see the SEC making some improvements with coaching changes and such. I was surprised to see that LSU has a committment from potentially the #1 player from 2015. The conference needs this, and the Cats need this.

    According to Jeff Borzello:
    Ben Simmons can make a terrific case for No. 1. For my money, the Australia native should be atop the rankings for the class of 2015. You can argue Ivan Rabb or Malik Newman, but Simmons has taken his game to another level over the past year and is the most impressive player in the class right now. The LSU-commit has made the transition to the small forward position, and he’s an absolute matchup nightmare for opponents. Simmons can knock down 3-pointers, glides past players in transition, and sees the floor and defense exceptionally well. I think he’s going to cement his standing as the AAU and camp season progresses.

    Magic Johnson may buy the Clippers according to yahoo!. Magic is good friends with Cal.

    LeBron is best friends with Chris Paul. LeBron is good friends with Cal.

    Cal running a Magic Johnson-owned team with LeBron and Paul, in a major city? Chance to turn around the most losing franchise in world history?

    It could happen..

    10:11 am April 28, 2014 Permalink

    Here comes the overselling of Patrick Towles and the UK football team from Matt. Just like last year with Whitlow, Pat can do no wrong and walks on water and his some how miles ahead of the other QB’s. He wont mention his interception or all the drops from our “best” receiver in Demarco Robinson.



    • UKats1996
      10:17 am April 28, 2014 Permalink

      Demarco Robinson is not our best receiver and never was, and keep in mind Towles was working with the second team during the pick and you should be excited that Za’Darius made that great play anyway

      I’m certainly not buying into Towles yet. This competition is wide open still. It will still be up for grabs after the season starts. The kids are that close and everything changes under real game pressure. None of them have much real experience.

    Matt, one way I have judged the importance of the twins returning is the absolute meltdown of our rivals on their various fan boards. In my opinion whenever the rivals fan bases start really bitching then you know something big has happened! After 1:00 on Friday the Bitch-o-meter went through the roof and I loved it!



  11. Kyboy415
    10:13 am April 28, 2014 Permalink

    Matt I’m super excited about next years team too can’t wait for the season to get here. We lost possibly 2 of our best free throw shooters. Yes we will dominate down low but when your bigs shoot under 50 percent from the line that’s a concern.



  12. Delk for 3
    10:14 am April 28, 2014 Permalink

    I won’t make any predictions until I see the freshmen play a few games. I think the upperclassmen are solid, but they are not overwhelmingly great.

      That’s what Forde does. Always has, always will. He hates cal and all things KY. He can’t cover anything good that happens at KY. The twins are coming back. He hears in his head. Willis is transfering. Forde is the reason I canceled by CJ subscription. Then stopped going to espn.com. now he has ruined yahoo

    Matt, look at the schedule and show me a loss. The only 2 I think might contend for a loss are at Louisville and at Florida.

    I never ever thought about last year’s team going undefeated, as most of the guys had never played a college game. This year, only 4 subs will be untested.. BIG difference. I think we have a great shot at it



  18. WakeCat
    10:16 am April 28, 2014 Permalink

    Run two lines in b-ball. One a big bruising team (D. Johnson, K. Towns, T. Lyles, Twins), which pounds it inside and plays a big zone D. Then, bring in the quick team (WCS, Lee, Poythress, Ulis and Booker) and have them press and run up and down the Court. Switch the 5 guys out every four minutes.

    Don’t know how you come away saying Patrick is hand down better than the other two. I understand how you can rate him the favorite to start but he didn’t do anything to say he is hands down the best of the 3 and needs to be named the starter now. I thought it was clear Pat and Reese were the top 2 and ahead of Drew, but Pat didn’t do anything to go head and close off the competition for the starting job.



    • Delk for 3
      10:24 am April 28, 2014 Permalink

      Totally agree. This thing is wide open. While Pat and Reese are in the front, Barker has only been there for like 14 or 15 practices so far. He still got plenty of opportunities the other day and that shows me the coaches aren’t counting him out yet.

    Cal should tell his big men next year to not worry about fouling when playing defense. If we hack and they don’t call it fine if they do we have plenty of subs.

    I was frustrated with the twins at some points last season. But instead of calling radio shows and posting mean stuff online, I decided to give them/Cal time to develop, and now I love them. Hopefully they get so much support this year that they can forget all about the jerk portion of our fan base from last season.

    Not naming Towles as starter is chicken Sh** by these coaches. They made us pay $40 a game last year to sit and watch boring Whitlow and Smith. They threw Towles a bone yesterday so he won’t transfer. They had him with the scout team all last season, what a joke!

    Matt, 2 things:
    1) Does it make more sense to go after a 5th year transfer Small Forward to give the unused scholarship to (someone looking for a masters, play under UK brand before potentially going overseas)?

    2) Do the Commonwealth/ Rupp renovations need to think about adding alcohol selling stations?

    I think the summer trip is really going to help for next season. If we get somebody to step up and be a defender like Kidd-Gilchrist, we will be REALLY good.

    We can have a 2012-esque year. That year we beat Kansas in the champions classic, UNC at home. So we could have some deja-vu.

    There will be a couple games where we get screwed by the refs of course.

    I say 36-4 or 35-5, ending in #9.

    Thoughts on Spring GAme:

    I really like this team. Got a feeling this defense is going to be tough.

    Hytchye is our best cover corner

    AJ Stamps really does play like Cam Chancelor

    Cant wait to see guys like Blake Bone, Dorian Baker and Boom Williams arrive. Talk about giving the offense another big boost.

    That play Timmons turned that 4yd pass to a 15 yd gain was crazy….saw flashes of Reggie Bush how he juked those guys.

    Elam will really help us defensively. Line him up over Center and a guard will HAVE to crash down opening lanes up for Bud and Zadarius as well as our LB.

    Also, something to remember is that Bud and Zadarius didnt play together…

    Our RB’s I think talent wise and depth wise rank in the top 5 in the SEC.

    Dorian Hendrix will eventually start at LB….kid can REALLY RUN.

    Meant is unbelieveable… 295lbs and can run a 4.65-40…..wow!

    There is only 1 game I see as “unwinnable” and thats LSU…. USCjr lost their QB, 2 DL, Starting LB, Safety. UF will struggle again….absolutely no QB or play-makers at WR. UGA has to replace their QB and lose 4 guys from defense. Mizzou loses QB, 2 D-linemen, DGB and 2 other WR with their RB. We were a decent QB away from beating Miss St. and Vandy. UofL is Bridgewater-less….Will be interesting to see…. STOOPS TROOPS!

U were very clear it was Barker or nothing at QB before spring game.. But u are usually very fair but not here.. It was not even close Towles made at least 6 NFL out routes throws on a freakin line!! Reese had his out route passes jumped almost every time he threw it , he easily could have had 3 ints..And Barker who will be great had wobbly passes and went 7 for 19 passing..If u watched that game and didnt see a huge gap in talent where they are right now? Then im sorry to say u are just a Barker fan-boy.. Last year i admitted Towles wasnt ready but i havent heard anyone but u say that this year!! Delk for 3 Barker has a nice ring to it!! lol

Then asks me 5-6 times if we want a pic with him… Finally relented, and my daughter’s (11 yr old) face in the pic is priceless!
