    Yeah, well, your coach enjoys fine dining at Porcini's.

    I guess you can call it that.

Miller came up big and Calipari continually went to him for one-on-one moves late in a tight game, despite Miller's hesitation to play tough pretty much the entire season. Then, he took Miller out with a couple minutes left and brought in Dodson, who calmly hit the biggest basket of the game with that three from the wing after Cousins rebounded Patterson's free throw.

    Liggins played lights out against Georgia, but barely gets off the bench today. Ramon Harris plays even less. And two guys Calipari has dogged all year make huge plays to basically win the game.

    I don't know if it's good coaching or simply allowing his guys to play to the style they want. It does seem as if this Kentucky team has a lot of answers. Is that Calipari, Cat fans? Non-Cat fans?

    Wall, BTW, had a pretty poor game tonight, IMO, despite what his stats will say. But he got absolutely mugged three times with no call on driving lay-up attempts. I mean beat down. (And there could have been two more calls that normally go to "star players" in other leagues.) I wonder if that was simply poor official positioning, or if that's going to be the modus operandi around the league. If it's the latter, Wall won't win the National POY. He may not even be the SEC's best freshman.
    Agreed on Wall. I thought Florida did an excellent job of shutting him down, but that was where Eric Bledsoe took over. You cannot collapse on just Wall, or Bledsoe is just as capable of making the plays to beat teams.

    What really worries me is that this is a young team that has no killer instinct. Cal even said as much last night after the game. Once they get up by 15 or so, they start to coast and that is when teams make runs that get them back into the game. By all rights Kentucky should have won by about 20 last night.

    I'm worried that every game before they play Tennessee is going to be a trap game.

    Could we possibly avoid having this discussion for the millionth time in this thread?

    I'm thinking maybe you are just tired of hearing his hype. A lot of people get like that about top recruits, prospects, etc.

    I agree with Scrap. Wall's stats were padded last night mostly from free throws and shots when it didn't really matter. Eric Bledsoe carried the team last night.

    One noticeable thing about John last night was his lack of cramping, first time this season that he's had no issues in that regard in a physical, tough game. Good to see.

    When it didn't matter? We didn't win by much.... Wall was drawing the defense in which helped his teammates. Bledsoe tore it up though, sure.

    Do you think Wall played poorly.... or poorly for John Wall standards?

    I read he ate 9 bananas before the game. Maybe that helped? He will at least be regular for a few days.

    I wouldn't worry too much about losing a lead on the road. I kinda expect a conference team at home to come back. Especially when they a pretty good team like Florida. I was impressed by the way they didn't panic when they lost that lead. Most very young teams, like UK, will panic on the road and just fold in that type of run UF had. But they rose up and put Florida away. I thought that showed a lot of maturity. Maturity beyond their experience too.

    I also thought Florida played pretty well in transition... very good outlet passes

    Just how much fun are you guys having watching these kids play ball? This season, to this point, has been an absolute joy to watch and cheer on.

    Amen.

    They are a lot of fun to watch. The winning helps too. Even when the team was winning with Tubby they weren't much fun to watch. In fact, it was down right painful at times. It's so nice to look forward to their games again.
