  1. No doubt. He loves to prove people wrong and basically rub it right back in peoples faces. If he were to be fed up with things, definitely could see him leave to go to a place like Indiana and just win at a high level like he did most of the time here. Just to rub it in our crazy fans faces.
  2. Now that could be a possibility. The stress of the UK job is hard enough for any coach, especially after being here 12 years now. Which is why Cal may have been right when he first got here, when he said a coach could only handle being at UK for 10 years at most. So then when you throw in the idiotic criticism fans we’re giving even before this year about one and done players. The stress of starting over every year, then the pandemic, the bad season this year, the kneeling stuff some people have complained about. It’ll It really could be the perfect storm him to say I am done with this. Then say I will make UK fans eat their words, by say going to Indiana and making Indiana relevant again. Because you know if he leaves UK, if he doesn’t go to the NBA. He will want to go somewhere to make UK fans regret wanting him gone.
  3. Have to love the Chiefs and Andy Reid playing to win the game, and not being conservative like many coaches do in that situation. Wow! What a call!
  4. Have to love the Chiefs playing to win, and not being conservative like so many coaches would have done there.
  5. The Chiefs are known for speed and one of, if not the fastest team in the NFL.
  6. I’m not on the the whole it is time for him to go train. He has been here 12 years and this is the first year he truly seems to have gotten it wrong. He has been very successful here doing things a certain way. This year the way he has done things obviously has not worked at all, and as I have even said in another thread has done something’s I don’t agree with either. However, he has been successful enough while here to deserve a chance to learn from this year and fix it next year and moving forward. This year could be the wake up call needed for him to see that he is going to have to start doing things different. Also someone else already mentioned it. People kept saying they no longer want one and done guys and want a roster of guys that stay that they could watch grow. Well in order for us to get that type of roster. We were going to have to have a horrible type of year. To which many guys wouldn’t be able to jump straight to the NBA. With that said having a team filled with guys who stay may be something just isn’t ever going to be possible for top program here soon. With the transfer rule changing, and guys able to transfer right away. Guys who don’t play much as freshman, are going to transfer right away rather than wait. I think people want a roster that Pitino use to have. However, that’s just not very realistic. Star players will leave earlier than they did back then, and bench/role players would be more likely to transfer.

  8. At this point I say just platoon and start all the older guys. Go with a lineup of: Mitz Allen Brooks Toppin Sarr Then roll with that group as long as you can, if that group struggles. Then just do a straight platoon and see if the freshman lineup can bring a spark off the bench with: Askew Boston Clark/Fletcher Ware Jackson All six of those freshman have started at some point this season. Give them a few minutes and see if they are giving you anything. Then if not, put the older unit right back in. Literally have those lineups practice against each other and get use to playing with those set five every day. Hopefully maybe they all could find some chemistry on offense with those set lineups. I know that won’t happen, but can’t be worst than this whole mix and match lineups and rotations he keeps throwing out there.
  9. Coach Stamm of Ludlow faced his former team in Conner earlier today and gave them a great game in a close victory for Conner.
  10. He honestly is just being honest. I have always defended him, but some of things he has done this year has made no sense. Especially with how hard headed he has been with playing certain players. So this is one of the first times in my opinion Cal has deserved some of the questioning people have done in terms of the basketball part.
  11. Yeah that is not good at all. Cal has always talked about you have to earn what you get. Allen and Toppin definitely earned the chance to start the second half and not be benched for not performing. Im not sure why he is so stuck on Boston. In the past if a five star truly wasn’t performing, he was able to move on from playing them much. He moved Skal out of the lineup and started not playing him much. Two years ago he moved on from playing Quade Green as much, then last year same with Whitney. So I have no idea why he is being so bull headed this time around with Boston. Maybe he doesn’t want him to transfer or leave the program. However, he can’t worry about that. He is not performing, guys like Allen and Toppin right now are performing better.
  12. Hey credit to you all, this will be the first year you all were right, and can finally mock people for saying that. It took you all awhile, but you finally have a year where you can mock people for saying that. Congrats on finally getting to be right on it. 😄
  13. Sarr has had his troubles. However, part of the problem is that this team has to be the worst team in the country with entry passes into the post. They either won’t throw it when he has position. Or they make a horrible pass, when they do.
  14. I have defended Cal a lot. However, I must say he doesn’t seem to have any idea with this team on what his rotation is, or what lineups he likes. There really is no rhyme or reason for some of his sub patterns, and lineups he uses. Which probably plays a big part on why this team struggles every game offensively. Today Allen played 2 minutes in the first 13 minutes of the second half. Jackson who is their best shot blocker, played only a couple of minutes the whole second half. I know this team really seems to have a lot of players basically at the same level. Where none of them have really separated themselves from each other. Which seems to have caused Cal to have no idea on what rotations he wants to use this year. I honestly think he may be better off just platooning at this point. Split them up the best you can to make two units of five. Have them practice together the whole time. Then legit just sub five for five. If one unit gets hot, then keep them in longer. Right now the constant mixing and matching of lineups, just isn’t working at all. This team has had no flow at all offensively all year.
  15. Must admit no idea why he is not playing Allen in the second half. I know he was upset Allen didn’t shoot it, when he was open coming off the double screen. However, this team struggles to score. He has to be out there, especially since his defense does seem to be improving every game.
