ESPN 680 Kansas Loss Podcast

Lachlan and I discuss another Wildcats loss at home.

NCAA Basketball: Kansas at Kentucky Mark Zerof-USA TODAY Sports

This team used to be fun to watch. It’s not fun anymore. For the second straight game, the Kentucky Wildcats suffered a loss and they again looked confused and uninspired for about 25 minutes of action.

If not for a big game from Derek Willis, the ‘Cats may have been blown out by the Kansas Jayhawks on their home court. But instead, they clung to life and lost 79-73 in front of a great crowd and a big time recruit as Kevin Knox was in attendance.

Here is what we discussed:

  • The Wildcats were prime for a big win with the crowd and the issues the Jayhawks were facing
  • Their tournament resume sucks right now
  • What happened to the offense
  • The ‘Cats haven’t looked good in a month
  • We get a lot of angry callers and texters
  • Derek Willis played his butt off, but that was about it
  • John Calipari’s press conference
  • We’re sick of the “young” excuse
  • The defense was again terrible
  • Has Kentucky regressed
  • How much blame should be heaped upon Cal
  • I didn’t like Calipari taking a swipe at Derek Willis while he continues to let other players off the hook
  • Players know Calipari won’t bench them and that’s part of the problem
  • All is not lost, but BBN is extremely frustrated given the talent level
  • Player sound from Derek Willis and Dominique Hawkins
  • Calipari asking “How do these things happen” but he’s the coach, he should know
  • What mysterious mind game or trick will Cal pull to motivate this team and get them back on track
  • Not a lot of flash left on the schedule
  • The toughness issue bothers me and I agree this team isn’t tough
  • We preview the Georgia game and talk about our keys to victory
