    Saw the ad that had KSR on it, that was kind of cool. #TeamKSR

    Saw on Twitter last night that UK was courting Swanigan hard again. Any truth to that?

      Unless those were rumors. We could use the help if he keeps his head on his shoulders.

      He’s very talented, I just worry that he could be a primma donna based on the rumors coming out of MSU. Although I’d be willing to give him the benefit of the doubt. If Coach Cal thinks he’s okay, then that’s good enough for me.

      It was Cal as in California and Cuonzo Martin not our Cal that the tweet referred to.

      It could have been some pissed off fans who started the alleged rumors because of his decommittment so soon after committing. I’d be pissed if someone Terrance Jones’d me too. Let’s not get the cart before the horse on whether or not the kid is a drama queen.

      sammydog – The tweet I saw specifically said “UK,” not “Cal.”

      However, I would be shocked if California doesn’t lead for his services.

      …And to add to that, it was associated with and account from someone from rivals.com

      Here is the Twitter profile. She is with California Rivals site. It looks like Swanigan is California’s to lose. “Just waiting for a spot to open up.”



    • J-Dub421
      11:14 am May 14, 2015 Permalink

      If he’s waiting for a spot to open up at Cal, then that means they have no available scholarship available for him. So what are they going to do? Boot one of their current players? I know Swanigan is good, but that would just be wrong.

    I think the job is still open because their talking to Jalen Rose.



    • J-Dub421
      10:27 am May 14, 2015 Permalink

      That would be great. I’ll totally take Jalen Rose on our staff.



    • Laker Cat 18
      10:41 am May 14, 2015 Permalink

      I love Jalen Rose. Loved watching him at Michigan, named a childhood dog Rose after him. But in the last two years, he’s been arrested for suspicion of DUI where he served a little time and got busted partying it up with IU students. No offense, I’m not sure he’s the best choice to be a role model for college kids.



    • J-Dub421
      11:01 am May 14, 2015 Permalink

      Hmmm…. I hadn’t heard that stuff about Rose, but then I don’t follow his career very closely. That would be quite a red flag.



    • Laker Cat 18

      Probably similar to Coach Strickland. Decent coach, just doesn’t know how to hide his personal life. Not sure UK needs the baggage.



  5. J-Dub421

    Any UK “fan” who thinks Cal can’t coach isn’t really a fan and obviously knows nothing about college basketball.

    Matt-what can you not figure out about Cal and the fans? After all this time, is it not obvious that there is a very vocal minority in our fanbase that consists of morons? It’s been that way forever, and a lot of the time that’s the segment of the fanbase that the national media uses to represent all of us.

    Obviously R. Glen Green is a U of L or Duke fan. If he really is a doctor in Owenboro, he’s about to lose his practice.

    The Harrison twins are the most over-criticized players I’ve ever seen, and there doesn’t seem to be a good reason for it.



    • ukjaybrat
      11:41 am May 14, 2015 Permalink

      they were only 3 games away from back to back championships… terrible players 😛



    • J-Dub421
      11:45 am May 14, 2015 Permalink

      Are they the best guards ever? No, but it always seems like a lot of people think they suck, and I just don’t get it. Andrew and Aaron are really good. I remember having Saul Smith and Michael Porter as our starting point guards….



    • ukjaybrat
      11:48 am May 14, 2015 Permalink

      I think a lot of people are just salty that we were so close two years in a row and didn’t hang a championship banner. they are indeed really good guards. they just happened to lose. it happens. even lebron james loses games every once in a while. doesnt make him a bad player



    • J-Dub421
      11:53 am May 14, 2015 Permalink

      Exactly. Even as talented as the ’90’s Bulls teams were, they didn’t win every single game they played.

    Never heard of that doctor and I live in Owensboro. Must be a proctologist.

    Matt, do you think Cal would be willing to concede some of the things he wants (i.e. roster control, salaray) so he can coach one of his guys like Rose or Davis?



    • bouzoukiman
      11:06 am May 14, 2015 Permalink

      Matt & Ryan never read the show thread anymore. Ryan may sometimes, but only when Matt isn’t there.



  11. Laker Cat 18
    10:49 am May 14, 2015 Permalink

    The fact that Cuonzo Martin is making Cal relevant says a lot. If he can win there, is there a shot he could be considered for life after Calipari at UK? I know, it’s crazy to think about with him.



    • J-Dub421
      11:00 am May 14, 2015 Permalink

      It would be rather amusing if Tennessee pissed him away, and he ends up being good, then coming to Kentucky to beat them for years in the SEC. 🙂

    Did anyone else notice that the UK Athletics tweet incorrectly called Bud “The Blue Hornet” instead of “The Blue Lantern”? The Photoshop was based on the Green Lantern, not the Green Hornet.

    Also, what’s this about John Wall allegedly flashing a gang sign last night? I didn’t see the game, and sorry if they already addressed it, but I was just able to tune in on the net.



    • J-Dub421

      I’m not a big comic geek, but that’s pretty basic stuff if you’ve seen ANY DC cartoons, movies, etc.



    • bouzoukiman
      11:30 am May 14, 2015 Permalink

      Oh, and some are saying there are pics on the net of Wall flashing the same gang sign at UK. Anyone know anything about this?



    • J-Dub421

      I haven’t heard anything about that. Did Colin Cowherd start that rumor?



    • ukjaybrat

      Colin said it this morning and said busted coverage leaked the video from last night. it was a grainy video. i couldn’t tell what he was doing with his hands. i just want to know what john wall did that colin hates him so much

    There’s a town called Sugartit in Boone County. About 10 miles from Big Bone Lick.

    Matt jumps on Ryan for talking about big butts and he is talking about twats.
