    That East Region Sux; they’re not taking any chances UL and UK are in the final four again.
    And UCLA in the East; that’s ridiculous.

      It will change at least 10 times before the tournament starts. I try not to pay too much attention to all these projections.

      Lunardi’s change on a daily basis; but, this was from the selection committee….and it shows their obvious agendas.

      I thought it was great to see where the committee thinks we stand a month out. Gives our guys motivation to keep that 3 seed. Or improve if some other teams fall.

      I thought this agenda crap was supposed to stop this year now that Mitch is a member of the committee.

    It would be good to get revenge games against two teams we should have beaten the first time, though.



    • RealCatsFan
      10:23 am February 13, 2017 Permalink

      I would be all for that if we had a team that was built like 2012 or 2015. With this team I would be worried about experiencing more heartbreak.

    Did you see Tom Crean go down? He set a beautiful screen, and should have been on the line for the one-and-one.

    Matt, don’t you know by now that Beyonce is a diva? Diva’s expect everyone to worship everything they do. They come out of the bathroom with the fan running and want everyone to worship their latest constitution. 🙂

    Why is our fan base so much harder on Briscoe than Fox? They’re both weak shooters. Sure De’Aaron is a better point guard, but Isaiah isn’t trying to be a point guard. He doesn’t have the same level of skill, but he works harder. I love them both, btw, just don’t understand the Briscoe hate.



    • RealCatsFan
      10:24 am February 13, 2017 Permalink

      Isaiah has hit a LOT more 3’s than De’Aaron. Much as I love De’Aaron, he really needs to work on his jumper.

      Exactly, but no one says horrible things about him like they do Isaiah.

      Briscoe has 4 double-doubles and a triple-double; and, he scored 7 straight points down the stretch to beat the Tide….and still there was hate.
      Too many “fans” on here that don’t understand the game.

      To their credit, 3 of his critics on my Twitter timeline apologized after his success toward the end of the game for what they had said earlier.



    • Sentient Third Eye
      10:35 am February 13, 2017 Permalink

      Part of it is that Briscoe has been put in the role of team leader, and he isn’t Tyler Ulis. Just about any other player in America would be deemed a lesser leader compared to Ulis, so some of the criticism of Briscoe is not totally fair, but at the same time, he is still the leader. There must be some accountability there when things go wrong.

      People are weird. I never understood all the Alex Poythress hate. Or why a portion of our fan base slobbers all over Willis all the time. Some players are held to ridiculous standards while others are not.

      Yep, same with the twins. I have co-workers that still hate them.

      Yep; two years and two final fours…and the thrill of the three’s against UL, Michigan, and Wisconsin.
      If you don’t win the ‘ship, Cal and the players are trashed.

      Briscoe = Turnovers. It’s that simple. He’s got 20 TO’s the last 5 games. No one is knocking his effort. I love how he fights. I may or may not be in the group who thinks he may try “too” hard at times, so hard he gets sloppy.



    • ukjaybrat
      10:57 am February 13, 2017 Permalink

      He has more turnovers because he has the ball more, because he is the most efficient scorer when we absolutely NEED a bucket. That’s like saying michael jordan had more missed shots than anybody… yeah well, he also made a lot more baskets than other people



    • ukjaybrat
      10:58 am February 13, 2017 Permalink

      and i’m not trying to compare briscoe to jordan… before that argument is made. just making a point. also i think brett favre held the record for most interceptions. doesn’t make him a terrible qb



    • CATandMONKEY

      Like it or not we have some narrow-minded dim bulbs in our fanbase. They were in evidence Saturday and are especially prolific posters after a loss…usually the only time many of them post.

      I love Briscoe. My only wish is that he’d stop stepping on the baseline so much. Love him, though

    The media overreaction of the guys being in a car that was in an accident this weekend was ridiculous. Including a KSR alert, radio making it a lead story and it being a big deal on the news.



    • J-Dub421
      10:35 am February 13, 2017 Permalink

      Agreed. And there will probably be idiots who will want to act like Fox and Bam did something wrong and that there was some kind of conspiracy/cover up.



    • RealCatsFan
      10:46 am February 13, 2017 Permalink

      Meanwhile that program down the road had a couple of their players pulled over in a “borrowed” car on a weed run, and their fans and the local media wanted to sweep it under the rug. Move along folks, business as usual. 😉



    • J-Dub421
      10:50 am February 13, 2017 Permalink

      Another week, another U of L in trouble story. You would think their fans would eventually get tired of all the crap and demand some change, but they don’t.

      i think at first it was “oh my god a car wreck! are they hurt ?!?! type coverage. and everything after “no injuries” was completely overblown and unnecessary

    On Willis’ mom, she uses the wrong words in her statements. She said the team was unsophisticated. I would bet she really meant immature. So if she calls again, I think she should write out her questions beforehand.

      I don’t know the woman. Was hoping she’d read it here or KSR would show her a little leniency to her in her wording. I personally hope she don’t call again. Her calls are like listening to a mother-in-law

      “I personally hope she ‘don’t’ (which = do not) call again”

      And you complain about someone not using the right words….. LOL. Okay.

    Can someone explain to me how Wisconsin is ranked 5th in the nation at the time of the 16 team top 4 seed selection show, but doesn’t get into any of the top 4 seeds?

    Duke being the last seed named must have something to do with it. Someone had to be left out I guess.



    • ukjaybrat
      11:03 am February 13, 2017 Permalink

      they are 1-3 against ranked teams. that only ranked team is indiana who might not even make the tournament anymore. are they a decent team? probably. but no proof of it.



    • ukjaybrat
      11:05 am February 13, 2017 Permalink

      oops. 2-3. didn’t see syracuse on their schedule. but they too are in danger of not making the tourney as well.



    • Laker Cat 18
      11:38 am February 13, 2017 Permalink

      We are only 2-4 against ranked teams. Those are teams currently ranked, not ranked when we played them.

      If we’re counting teams like Michigan State who are terrible and ranked when we played them, we’re 3-4.



    • ukjaybrat
      12:08 pm February 13, 2017 Permalink

      yes but 3/4 of our losses are to top ten teams
      2/3 of wisconsin’s losses are to fringe top25 teams

    I don’t get the geography argument with UCLA being sent 2,000 miles from home; they’re 23-3.
    Looks like they’re giving the West to Gonzaga; although I think they would have a tough time with Oregon, Virginia, and W. Virginia.

    REALME, I know i am one you might be talking about on Briscoe but i love his game and his toughness all i said was please stop shooting the three and i still stick to that but keep doing every thing else. We can’t win with out him.



    • RealCatsFan
      11:10 am February 13, 2017 Permalink

      Rick, in general I agree, but he has hit from 3 in several games this year. Fox, on the other hand, has had at most 2 successful shots from behind the arc.



    • Realme
      11:11 am February 13, 2017 Permalink

      You should see my Twitter timeline during games, it’s really hard on him. I wasn’t specifically thinking of you or anyone on here. Unless you think it’s clever to call him Bricksoe. 🙂



    • CATandMONKEY
      11:12 am February 13, 2017 Permalink

      You seem balanced about the issue, like several responders above. I don’t necessarily agree with all the Briscoe criticism but can readily accept a rational position that recognizes both the positives and the negatives of a particular player.
      For me Briscoe should have a spot on the floor but of course I would prefer to see him avoid what sometimes appear to be habitual, poor on-court decisions.



    • ukjaybrat
      11:13 am February 13, 2017 Permalink

      gah, reply fail. see comment 12

      also, that doesn’t include the one step inside the three point line that fox is notorious for (and misses most of those as well)



    • secrick
      11:15 am February 13, 2017 Permalink

      Yeah i beat Twitter is hard on him but 11 points and 11 rebounds should shut any body up. Also can’t listen to the radio what is the story about the card players with the weed?



    • RealCatsFan
      12:28 pm February 13, 2017 Permalink

      Rick, that was back in 2014 (I think), when Behanan and Ware were pulled over for going 100 MPH on I-65 South near Bowling Green. They were driving a Dodge Challenger that was registered to a well known UofL booster. The whole thing was VERY shady, but swept under the rug by Jurich and the local media lapdogs.

    Fox:
    8/46 = .174

    Briscoe:
    14/41 = .341



    • CATandMONKEY
      11:20 am February 13, 2017 Permalink

      My math says that makes Briscoe’s percentage about double that of Fox with a similar number of attempts. But some people will still call him Bricksoe. SMH. Perception is NOT always reality despite what many of the useless workplace management programs attempt to pass on as gospel.

    Good thing Alabama was so bad at free-throw shooting because the refs sure gave them a bunch of opportunities with all the phantom foul calls.



    • secrick
      11:42 am February 13, 2017 Permalink

      Poor Isaac can’t breath on a player without getting a foul called. The last one on Bam was bad to i thought.



    • J-Dub421
      11:55 am February 13, 2017 Permalink

      Isaac got several ridiculous calls (as usual), Bam got some crappy calls, Hawkins got two crappy calls that I can remember, and there were a couple of bogus calls on Briscoe and Wenyen.

      I just want the officiating to be consistently sucky at both ends. Is that really too much to ask for?
