How many more losses will Kentucky get before the NCAA's forced to make them not be a #1 seed?

I don't care if UT wins another game this season (and they may not)....that game was better than any championship.  Just the sheer domination in every way was nice- I know Noel was a big part of Kentucky's game, but I don't think even he could have saved them yesterday.  UK hasn't been great this season, yet they were still ranked...not anymore.

/actually, wouldn't mind UT winning more games
//still loved yesterday, best game UT has had in years against a rival

Noel was actually a player I liked to watch.  So good defensively, hustled...  sadly hustled his way right into a freak injury.

The rest of the team is a gigantic meh.  All these ridiculously high recruits and none of them are worth spit.  They'll disappear into the woods of the NBA and we'll forget they ever played college ball.  Next year may be better for Calipari - their class is ridiculous - but in a strange way it feels wasteful.

Oh Duke still sucks.  Shuh-chef-ski went full whine mode after losing to MD.  A thing of beauty.
 
2013-02-17 01:00:58 PM  
This is the downside of the one and done system. Last year was the upside, which will not occur as often as UK fans would like. Yet, Kentucky fans will never object to it, or even recognize the problem.

However, many friends of mine were asking "is it next year yet" after last night's game. Talk about fair weather fans...

Generation_D: How many more losses will Kentucky get before the NCAA's forced to make them not be a #1 seed?


Kentucky's not really like other big name teams in that regard.  The selection committee salivates at the chance to keep them out of the tournament.  This year they have no chance, even with bouncing in and out of the rankings.  The only way they get in as a #9 is if they win the SEC tourney somehow.
 
2013-02-17 02:32:55 PM  
Man that game yesterday was hard to watch.  Nerlens was the heart and soul of the team, and the rest of the bunch just looks lost.  I'd be shocked if we can pull a tourney berth out of the remainder of the season.  Really, I just feel terrible for Noel.  He's a great kid, and while no one deserves to get hurt, he was the one guy who deserved it least.  One of my favorite players we've had, and on of the most fun to watch.

Are you effing kidding me.

All the Storied Blue Programs are given free passes into the tourney if at all possible.

Carolina, Duke, Kentucky, KS, UCLA

Will never miss a tourney if they have any bubble claims whatsoever.

The Ref's pissed me off yesterday, Goodwin got T'd for reacting to being pushed, yet the guy that pushed him didn't get a Flagrant foul assessed.  farking bullshiat.

Yeah, that sucks. It's about the same way I felt about Lattimore's injury in college football.

Calipari threw his team under the bus after the game. The man sure knows how to take personal responsibility.

Players with integrity don't flop like Mason Plumlee did last night in the final minute to foul Dez Wells out of the game.  I'm not sure Wells even touched Plumlee and Plumlee flopped before his feet were set.  The refs from the Kings/ Lakers Game Six blushed when they saw that charge get called.  If I were Plumlee, I'd be embarrassed to get that call.  Its admitting you can't be Maryland without diving like a French soccer player.  Its Maryland for christ sakes.  You are on Duke.  Have some self respect.  That's embarrassing.

At the end of the day though, what matters is championships. If you can get there by bringing in NBA talent that doesn't give a shiat about your school or its traditions, more power to you. At this point I don't think UK fans would even consider a Sweet 16 berth a victory given the 'boom or bust' makeup of the team. Reminds me a lot of professional basketball actually - there's no "rebuilding" years or watching players develop. Just spend for the now, the hell with the consequences long-term.

Sucking is about a lot more than wins and losses.
 
2013-02-17 07:02:07 PM  
I do have to say that Maryland-Duke game was ungodly.  I've never seen a team cough up so many random, unforced basic turnovers.  26!  26 turnovers!  And Duke still couldn't beat them.  Without those turnovers a crappy Maryland team wins by 15-20 points.

I blow hot and cold on Adam Gold.  He's obviously very smart and knowledgeable, but sometimes he beats up on his callers for not knowing as much as he does.

I predict that within 4 years, the NCAA is going to find its own Pat Donaghy among its refs, and I won't be surprised if it's an SEC ref who made some big money off "upsets" against UK.

I'm surprised the Senior leadership on Kentucky hasn't called a players meeting at this point in the season...
