    I'm not complaining about recruiting. I'm just pointing out that many of the same people I see here and on social media complaining about recruiting, are the same people complaing about recruiting one and done players.
    I know UK is a lifelong scholarship as well but itís not Duke.

    Cal admitted as much in the post-game interview. He said he was to blame for this loss.

    When you are hearing that most people are holding out very little hope that we will beat Auburn, you know its a pretty disappointing year.

    Just a wretched display of basketball the last three games.

    They are freshmen and some of them are soft like freshmen.

    Most freshmen aren't like Cousins and Randle. This is what typical freshmen look like. They need to toughen up to get to the level needed to win in February and March.

    I still think this team can make a run in the NIT.

    This team is just not that good. They have 2-4 wins left, depending on who they draw in the SEC tournament.

    Well the list is actually a little longer.

    Strong like Cousins, Randle, KAT, MKG, Fox, Wall.

    I saw part of his post game presser and he said exactly that about the t/o ..."i should have called the t/o, I don't usually do that but with this team I should have ..this loss is on me" .

    This team has never really captured my imagination. When I found myself watching Shark Tank reruns a few weeks ago instead of UK , I knew I had never really bonded with this bunch. Boring, stagnant, unengaging, dispassionate, unintelligent brand of basketball.

    True. Just sayin', as a hypothetical, they wouldn't win it. Probably out of it early on.

    Absolutely have to win the 3 remaining home games against Bama, Missouri, and Ole Miss. They do that, and avoid a 1st rd exit in the SEC tournament and they'll be in.

    I'd venture their chances of stealing one of the 4 remaining road games (@ A&M, @ Auburn, @ Arkansas, and @ Florida) are slim to none.
    I like their chances against Auburn. UK matches up better with them, than they do these physical teams. Just like WVU fast paced style helped UK. I see the same with Auburn.

    Reached his limit of basketball skills? He is still a freshman! We been so spoiled around here with guys playing great as freshman. We forget they can actually get better. He probably won't stay to his junior or senior year. But I can guarntee we wouldn't be saying yep he reached his limit as a freshman.

    At the end of the day just because our expectations for him were high. Doesn't mean he is a failure and possibly reached his limit as you stated.
