    A lot of the talking heads were discussing this earlier in the year, about how the clock was ticking for Cal to get one that sticks. They were talking about how Kentucky will more than likely be his last rendezvous and that he will be working to do it the right way to ensure he gets one that will stand. Obviously they were talking in the future tense, of course no one pictured getting it this season. I hope I'm not wrong but can't see anything shady with Knight, Lamb, Jones, Vargas, Poole, and Polson. Enes is another story but he didn't play so it don't matter.


    So not only am I happy for him to get one that should stand the test of time, I'm hoping he gets a championship to go with it. No disrespect to Butler or VCU, they have had magical runs themselves but the winner of the UK/UCONN game is going to be your national champ. Cinderella has to leave the ball before midnight right?

    Cal is now 13-1 in the post season at UK. Not bad for a guy who doesn't know x's and o's.

    Some haters were telling me they think jones will be ruled ineligible years down the road. Just speculating though...

    I think this one will stick. It better.

    Jones scared me a little as well, but I think we are good!

    If Coach Cal hasn't proved this year that he can do much more than just recruit studs, then I don't know if people will ever believe he's a good floor coach as well.

    Yes, as i said in another thread, one of the best things about this season is Coach Cal is getting the credit he deserves for being a great coach.

    Always a possibility as long as the ex-Washington prez is in charge of the NCAA (See Enes Kanter). Curious if Enes' would have been allowed to pay back the $$'s if he'd have stayed with UDub?

    The last two games I have enjoyed watching UK as much as any games probably since the mid 90's.

    I thought about starting a thread asking all the haters to chime in with me and speculate as to why they thought this years would be vacated, but then I thought better of it.

    Time will tell if this one sticks or not, if it doesn't I suspect Cal will be out of the college coaching game for good. If it does UK fans will be thrilled and Cal will likely make a few more in his time at UK.
