USC/UK

I was at the game in Columbia ... I had lower level seats. Trust me, PPat got fouled a plenty and the "no calls" fueled the Colonial crowd. You're kidding yourself if you think USC got 16 "clean" blocks - this was a mugging - Jarvis Varnadoe does not play for USC. I've been to many UK/USC games in Columbia and this one was no different - you have to commend the USC fans they are a force - just like 24,000 screaming in Rupp. Our kids weren't ready and that responsibility has to fall squarely with the coaching staff. We had the same game plan and got nearly the same result (as far as turnovers and made threes) as the USC/UK game in Rupp. We had to defend the three better - everyone knew that - but there was no effort and no adjustment. We still don't have one play (even just an catch and shoot - note to BCG: see Tubby Smith's design play for Joe Crawford) to help Jodie get an open look. Watch Jodie move without the ball - he's the James Brown of college Bball - "the hardest working man" - he should be SEC and National POY. Nobody works as hard as Jodie Meeks - thank you Jodie on behalf of all the fans. An equally big Thank You to Patrick Patterson - Kentucky fans are mostly hitting BCG over this game and alot of that is warranted but, please, UK fans, don't forget the effort of PPat - Devan Downey didn't - he recognized a great player doing everything in his power to help his team win, he recognized a player who refused to quit, refused to give up. Patrick Patterson, thank you for your effort - there will be better days in your future. So on to the future. A lot has been opined about the return of PPat and JM, my thinking is why should they? Come back to what? AJ Stewart gone ... who else will go .. Perry Stevenson?, Josh Harrelson? Liggins? Will they go the way of Legion and Jasper? Porter should go... he's not a D-1 point.... there it's said again. He's 2-Guard - try another experiment at point. In the USC/UK game we came out of a time out, had a play called by our coach(?), and Liggins dribbles right, looks in to PPat, ignores an open JoshH, passed to no one and launches a three that missed badly - you can't tell me that was the play we called - BCG does not have the respect or the confidence of his players ... he berates them publicly and individually... that's not a team concept and I have never seen anything like that in UK basketball. Go ahead BCG tick off the Journalists and the Referees - who suffers - you or your team? If you follow recruiting you may see the impact BCG has had with UK, look at the top uncommmited recruits, Lance Stephenson will choose this week, is UK in the mix? How about John Wall? DCousins includes Kstate, NCState and Rutgers - not UK....Think we can land Harrison Barnes? If you have D-1 talent ... UK is on national television for almost every game, UK leads the NCAA in attendance year after year, look at our facilities  ... it's the fans and support that make this program great ... a coach(?) ... (BCG are you listening?) should be able to capitalize on that. I'm not ready to say "hey, cut your losses and move on" but I've had about all of the BS I can stand and I know I'm not alone in that thought ... I want that eighth banner in Rupp like any other true fan and I'm not one to accept mediocrity ... Here's a scenario sure to inflame alot of Cat fans  .... what coach (currently on the sidelines) could both recruit and capably coach a UK team to a National Title? A couple of weeks ago The General, Bobby Knight, was quoted as saying he would be interested in the coaching vacancy at Georgia. Hey if you're going to can BCG, go with a proven winner. You may not like his ways, but you couldn't argue with his success and I'm not sure if anyone is happy with BCG's ways except maybe MitchB. Just some food for thought. Cat Fans ask yourself "how bad do you want that eighth banner?"
