    Curious what you don't like about him? The energy he coaches with? The confidence he has? The fact he eventually turns programs around wherever he goes? As a person he seems like a good guy. I'm just curious what has made you hate him so much? Honestly IMO he a lot like Cal was to much before Cal came here. I would love to have him here at UK, as long as I knew he wouldn't possibly get the program in trouble. Which was my same opinion on Cal before he came here.

    I said last week I liked UK's chances against Auburn. UK matches up well with Auburn. Auburn likes to speed things up and play fast like WVU. As we seen I think that fast pace actually helps get UK in more of a rhythm in a game. So I just see this is a game that UK comes out and gets a much needed win.

    "He just doesn't get it" sums it up best. I also think he felt the game would come much easier to him that it has, when to me it seems the game is moving faster than him.

    I also think he has the ability to one day have it click... not sure it will be in the next month, though.

    Will this game still be Auburn's Super Bowl? Any black- or whiteouts planned? Or has UK's recent lukewarm efforts reduced this to a conference championship game? Maybe UK can sneak up on them.

    I see his attitude when he drives and misses the shot, then turns to the ref wondering why a foul wasn't called. While this is happening, the other players are already getting downcourt. Just way too overconfident in his ability. Maybe he should have gone pro after last season......

    Make or break game for the cats.
    I've been down on them all season but I think they steal one against Auburn.

    UK 81
    Auburn 77

    If Auburn over looks a slumping athletic Kentucky game, it could be a close game, if not Auburn by 12.

    No way that Auburn is overlooking this game. Get real. Doesn't matter how bad of a season UK is having, when they come to town, it's not overlooked.

    Make or break game, I think this is it. The coaches have challenged the kids, the players had a “players only” meeting. If they can’t win this one, what motivational tool is left?

    They should not, nor are they expected to win. You want them to come out and compete. If they lose, then so be it. But get wiped off the floor and the spiral may get out of control.

    Who knows? These are 19-20 year old fickle kids that we try and diagnose like they are adults.

    I've said for weeks he's a mix of Goodwin and Rhodes.
