Just a little heads up. We are going to beat you like a circus animal on the 29th. I wouldn't be surprised if the game is over after the 1st half. This could be the worst beating cal has ever received as a coach, if not it will be his worst at uk, and I don't think rick is going to let up on uk either. What's funny in all of this, is this time last year cal was getting his little shots in through the media at rick, this year he hasn't said a peep. He knows this one is going to be bad! He knows there is another school in kentucky and he's hiding under his rock.
you think Cal's boot camp was started for any reason other than the fact he's been watching UL wear teams out with their depth and defensive intensity
Some of Cal's good fortune may have run out a bit on this team. This group isn't embracing defense like his previous groups have. They also look to have a more healthy dose of selfish also. Still expect them to be good by year end but I'm not nearly as sure of what their ceiling is.
Please, let's not run our mouth. He's beaten us 4 times out of 4 here, including ending our season last year when we were so close to cutting down the nets. Its like UK fans already running their mouth about getting us in football next year. I fully expect us to win, but I'm keeping my mouth shut unless provoked by some UK fan. Even with a win on the 29th, I'm keeping my mouth shut until we win it all in Atlanta. Playing them in such a huge game in the Final 4 sort of downplayed this regular season tilt. You realize how much more could be at stake later.
I think a talented and well-coached team will beat them in March unless they have a major overhaul in attitude. They do some things very well, but good teams can take away what you like to do most. Can UK counter? Not right now.
They have to want to work hard and they haven't shown that yet. They can't just put on a UK jersey and hope things go their way. They could be top 10 again if they put in the work. If they are just on campus until draft time then it will be a long year for them.
I guess we'll see.
Stupid post. Talk is cheap. We should be smart enough to keep our mouth shut until we actually do something.
You sound like a defensive back in football talking all that sh!t at a receiver just because you broke up a pass play, right after you had been burned for four touchdowns from the same receiver. I have never understood someone talking trash before a game, especially when they have not had the history to back it up.
Wait until we do something. The last time we barely beat these guys was on a last second shot by Sosa, in a year when we were heavy favorites to win at our house.
Love it! as much shit as the slapdicks talk i like a little smack from time to time from our side haha. i avoid the smack board bc those r uk trolls, sayin nonsense to get a rise out of people, not thinking clearly. which is typical of that breed haha. . .
im thinkin we wear them out. they are too raw and poorly coached to keep up with the speed of our team offensi vely and especially defensively. the speed of our back court will have them grabbin shorts with 8mins left in the 2nd.
im thinkin we run with it and im hopin Rick pushes us to really jack up that score. if there is an opponent i show no mercy with and would cheer to drop 100 if the opposing team only had 12 points, itd be the bluenecks.
Calipari is the demise of decent college basketball and decent people involved w college basketball. I personally love college basketball so Calipari needs to fuck off.
:) CardNation til I die. CARDSALLDAY. Beat Florida. Beat Mempiss. Beat cal's daycare

Lol cutttyhunk, whatever da hell that means. Blah blah you are like a defensive blah blah blah. Bitch please, if you can't see the talent gap between these teams then I am sorry. Its not even close, at All. And if u can see it and are just too scared to mention it, sorry. But don't call me out on my opinion just because you don't agree with it.
Why even reply if you don't like a post, I don't. I think some of you just scan these boards looking to make enemies because you have nothing better to do. Smh!
UofL wins because of experience.
Not trying to call you out but Kentucky has as much talent as anyone in the country. They just don't have any experience. That and the fact their point guard situation is shaky at best.
That last sentence is what is gonna be their undoing against our pressure.
I shudder at the thought of Polson bringing the ball up against Peyton and Russ.
Hell, I would shudder at the thought of about any point guard bring the ball up against that duo.
Weren't you pretending to be a UL fan like a month ago? You were found out and now your openly claiming uk but trying not to be a dick towards our program?
You used to have a UL picture I believe.
All your comments would slightly compliment UL but ease the blow for uk bashing.
You comment on this board more than most of the UL regulars.
You seem to know a lot about UL, and you even seem to be educated. You fit the mold for a UL fan minus the trolling and the potential for being a fake just trying to rattle cages.
Consider the good guys, life is better knowing your wins are earned. When the players work their tails off year after year for the fans, not for the simple mentality of leaving as soon as possible to get that Bentley, its comforting.
Moral of the story. Fuck UK. Fuck trolls. Go Cards
Talent hmmmm...how many UK players would start at iu uofl or Florida! ???. Polson wouldn't be on there teams the big white kid couldn't start any major team and the transfer mayes where would he start and he's there most consistent player.
Thank u sbsbs. There isn't 1 player on uks roster that would start for us!
Rick wouldn't start the kid Goodwin no matter how much of a scorer he is because Goodwin doesn't know how to run an offensive set, doesn't care if ANYONE is open and doesn't have a good grasp of good defense other than trying to shoot gaps and reach. Watch Russ and Peyton and how they funnel the ball handler into the teeth of the defense and trap when and where they're suppose to. Then the shooting gaps, backtaps and reaching comes in effectively. Noel would be our 3rd string center or maybe 2nd string power forward behind Dieng or SVT and Chane or Harrell. Noel is talented but also has no idea what good defense is and too skinny to play in the big east down low. Poythress is about on the same level as Harrell so he could work into the lineup but still would come in behind Behanan no doubt. WCS would be in the same position as Mathiang and probably redshirt under Pitino but we all know Cal only cares about shipping kids off to the NBA and replacing them next season so in the words of Jase Robertson and Duck Dynasty "HE GONE!" Wiltjer...HAHAHAHA! Kid wouldn't see the floor except for mop up duty in a blow out. Mays, Harrow and Polson would be good walk-ons at best.
With you on that one. I almost feel like this post could jinks us bad, I like letting them talk and us talk on the court/field it hurts worse. I think we have this one but you know how things go, almost like your best FT shooter about to shot some desperately needed FT's and the commentator mentioned he's 85% and hasn't missed in 5 str8 games then he misses right after his finishes his sentence.
Noel/WCS would't start over Dieng
Poytress might start over Chane/Harrell at this point. He's raw, like Harrell, and I love Trez, Poytress is a 1 and done lotto pick. Chane is playing like a freshman right now. All are pretty close.
Wiltjer...it would be fascinating to see what Rick would do with him. Clearly he can't play defense for Rick. However, he'd easily be our best shooter. Right now, Hancock and Blackshear aren't consistent at the 3, but I expect both to eventually give us more than Wiltjer ever would, if they aren't already.
I love Russ. I can't say Goodwin is better, because of what Russ does defensively. However, Goodwin is FEROCIOUS going to the rim and will be a star in the NBA. If somehow we had Archie to go with Russ, Archie plays at the 3 and they both get tons of minutes.
Siva blows Harrow out of the water right now. Harrow could close the gap some, but he won't all the way.
Mays is a pretty good shooter. Reminds me of Jerry Smith to be honest. Undersized 2, not a super athlete. He's different than anybody we have. Ware is a much better athlete and defender.
Noel is an energy guy.
Rick likes energy guys.
If we can shoot 40 percent or better and make 70 percent of our free throws, we win. Otherwise, it will be a dogfight. Kentucky is very talented. Just not über talented like last year.
with or without dieng we have more talent experience and coaching. GO CARDS. but on a side note uk is no walkover, but i think cal knows he has it coming
I agree. The reason why Cals teams have played us so well is because they've done a great job defending the ball and against an offense that something struggles to score like ours it has led them to leads of at least 15 points in every game we've played. We simply have to score and score efficiently. I expect us to win but I don't think it's going to be some 20 point beating. When it's all said and done I expect us to come out on top 74 - 65.
Good luck against the press
I agree with the op on this one. Yeah they have owned us the last four years and its time now that I can talk shit. Has anyone seen out defense? Noel will foul out trying to block shots and we will run it down their throat. I am confident in my team. They kept us from cutting down the net but we are a better team this year than we was in the FF. they had sick talent last year but they don't have the same presence this year. Tired of hearing their shit its time to hear mine.
Correction, last years team kept us from cutting down the nets.
