    Crawford didn't start, but he has been our best offensive player.

    I love that Billy is trying to light a fire under this young man's fanny.

    Bradley picks up a technical... not sure why.

    I just saw on the 11:00pm news that Gardner-Webb beat UK at Rupp by 16. Realizing that it was a mistake, I searched the Web for the correct score, but every site I go to has the wrong score, as well.

    How badly did UK beat Gardner-Webb tonight?

    84-68 the final.

    For those who did not watch last nights game, Kentucky held Central Arkansas to 20% shooting from the field. Despite this, Coach Gillispie was furious at Kentucky, and ESPN could not believe it. Why? 16 turnovers.

    Needless to say, GW scored 53% from the field tonight. When you couple that with countless Kentucky turnovers, not to mention shooting 35%, its going to be an embarrassment.

    The biggest problem for this Kentucky team is the same as it was last year, no leadership. Gillispie wants Ramel Bradley to take the team on his back, but Bradley is not a leader, and neither is Joe Crawford, and I am also starting to question Jodie Meeks. You could make a point that both Bradley and Crawford played a hand in costing us the game tonight.

    As for what did impress me. Patrick Patterson is going to be a star, period. The only thing he really needs to work on is defensive presence, and that comes with using his feet on defense. He is a great shot blocker and rebounder, but he needs to move around in order to become a good defensive presence. Alex Legion was about the only shooter with a hot hand. I believe if Bradley and Crawford had rode the bench in the second half that Kentucky might have clawed back.

    The feel-good story so far this year has been Mark Coury. I don't think anybody in Kentucky expected the performance he put up last night and the production he has been giving so far this season.

    Gillispie has inherited a mess under Tubby, but I believe if he gets his players in and the Kentucky faithful will be patient, we can be back to a Final Four in a couple of years. Problem is, Kentucky fans are like Notre Dame and want the quick fix.

    It was u-g-l-y.

    Half-court offense is going to be a real struggle for the Cats this season.

    Whenever they began a run, one of those two would take an ill-advised shot that would inevitably lead to a scoring flurry from Gardner-Webb.

    I'll be glad when those two graduate.

    They have no half-court offense, whatsoever, and seemingly do not run any single set plays, as ridiculous as that sounds. Hardly any picks or anything. Also, there are times when they'll take several consecutive trips down the floor without Patterson touching the ball when he's there on the floor. Sound familiar?

    Seems to me, even with a new coach, Bradley and Crawford are still playing their way. This will need to change ASAP if UK doesn't want to have more Gardner-Webb games.

    At least it was an exhibition game... oh wait, it turns out the Atlantic Sun conference is division one. Gardner-Webb is already over 20% of the way to last years win totals.

    What bothered me last night with this was that earlier in the preseason, Gillispie was eager to pull both if they made a mental mistake. Bradley played pretty much the whole game tonight and Crawford really stayed in much of the game.

    One thing I did notice comparing Gillispie to Tubby is that Billy Clyde is willing to accept blame, if you read the article by Tipton in the Herald Leader this morning.

    Early in season but Kentucky has neither a good post game or good perimeter shooting at this point. With that combination there are going to have to count on their defense to create offense ... and seeing that the style of defense is new, that will take time.

    Can I still blame Tubby for this? That was sad last night. UK acted like they had never seen a backdoor cut in their lives. I would love to be in on one of their practices the next 2 weeks. Over/Under on how long either Bradley or Crawford last this season at Jan 25th.
    Never let facts get in the way of a good rant.

    "In on" as in an observer and not a participant, I assume?

    I wonder if it is prudent to practice these boys as hard as Billy is on game days considering how super-thin our bench is...

    WilyMo, I tried to tell you Mike Davis was the right hire for you guys but you wouldn't listen. No way Gameday Davis loses to Gardner-Webb.
