    Remaining UK schedule with opponent RPI:

    at #25 Texas A&M
    at #5 Auburn
    #36 Alabama
    at #34 Arkansas
    #31 Missouri
    #76 Ole Miss
    at #46 Florida

    Every remaining game except one against a top 50 RPI opponent. Win 3 of the games versus RPI top 50 teams and they likely will be in the top 20 in RPI wins and be in the top 10 in strength of schedule.

    Not that he owns any of the players, but I think you’re going to get your wish.

    I actually like what I'm seeing out of maybe 6 players.

    Please name them and what you like - or are you saying 6 that you think are giving full effort.

    Remember weeks ago when I said that this team is just as likely to miss the tourney as they are to survive the first weekend? Right now they are going to have to pull some upsets just to make it. There are likely 4 more losses in regular season play plus one in the SEC tourney. That WVU win is only worth so much.

    In the Micro, no it would seem not. In the Macro, maybe he is seeing some fight and play out of some players that still gives him hope.

    I like the improvement and effort I'm seeing from: Green, Gilgeous-Alexander, Richards, Gabriel, Vanderbilt and Washington (slightly less than the other 5).

    Have to have more from Knox and Diallo is strictly a liability at this time.

    I just think some people look at a player like Miles Bridges and wonder why Cal can’t get a player like that to stay for more than a year.

    You quoted before I did w / basically the same comments so I'll just give you the instead of repeating.

    I donít want to say UK is on the bubble (yet), but they arenít going to be favored these next couple of games, at A&M and at Auburn. Lose those and it gets much more murky.
    As for the bolded, I agree and would add that on the last possession this team was obviously confused on what they wanted to do. I am not sure but I think that Cal had a time out left and imo he should've taken one to set up a last shot. That ...no t/o's is Cal's thinking in that situation, I have heard him say that before. One particular time was when at Memphis ...he lost a national title to Kansas with a scenario almost like that.

    I think that I may have said this only once or twice through the years bc I don't like blaming coaches for a loss, bc I have been there with coaches in my family. However, I will say that in this game ...the U.K. players and coach choked and leave it at that.
