    I'm still not seeing any patterns here. There certainly isn't any shame in losing to a team that goes on to make the National Championship.

    Also... he was at MEMPHIS and UMASS (minnows in the college basketball world). That makes the records he compiled there even more amazing.

    And last year we were very young so it wasn't too surprising to play poorly in the tournament at some point.

    Memphis has always been pretty good. Well. At least from the 70s forward. Although the rumors were out there about their willingness to violate the NCAA since way back when.

    In fact, the 2008 runner-up trophy was the 2nd one the program had been forced to give back.

    They've always had players.

    Larry Finch, Keith Lee, Sylvester Gray, Elliot Perry, David Vaughn, Penny Hardaway, Lorenzen Wright.
    When all is said and done more is said than done.

    Speaking of CATS in the NBA, DeMarcus, John, and Eric are all having great starts to their rookie campaigns.

    AND the biggest man of them all, Rajon Rondo set an NBA record with 82 assists in his first 5 games!

    How would Rondo have looked in a Calipari style offense instead of Tubby Ball.....ah to dream.

    Championships for MY teams in my lifetime:
    Cincinnati Reds - 75, 76, 90
    Chicago Blackhawks - 10, 13
    University of Kentucky - 78, 96, 98, 12
    Cincinnati Bengals - None
    Chicago Bulls - 91, 92, 93, 96, 97, 98

    Maybe it's just me, but it's hard to get a grasp on what this team is going to be until we get the Kanter situation finalized. I'm as excited as always, but expectation-wise it's hard to get a feel for this team with such an important ingredient in limbo.

    Make a decision already.

    Re: University of Kentucky Men's Basketball - 6th edition

    Paul Daugherty just freaking amazed me...

    John Calipari stands in a ballroom in a big hotel in downtown Lexington. He's saying a few words at a breakfast for the local Salvation Army to launch its Christmas campaign. The room is full, maybe 500 people, and Calipari is working it. It's tough to say where his act plays better. This stage? Or the one next door, in Rupp Arena?

    It's not a criticism to say the Kentucky basketball coach can be 10 pounds in a five-pound bag. Calipari tells the people what they want to hear. More often than not, he delivers, though not without complications. The devil of two vacated Final Four appearances, owing to NCAA rules violations, is never far from Calipari's shoulder.

    He wins, though, a lot. The people love him for it, at least while he's there. Calipari's habit of exiting out the back door is well documented. On this day, at least, none of that matters in Lexington, epicenter of Big Blue Nation.

    Calipari is talking about obligations and opportunities. The obligations he has to the university, and the opportunity afforded him by the mega-pulpit he occupies as its basketball coach. There is no basketball like UK basketball. It is football in Alabama, hockey in Montreal, sun in Miami Beach. Other things do matter in the Commonwealth. None leap to mind.

    The only thing he does better than BALL is DOUGIE

    Re: University of Kentucky Men's Basketball - 6th edition

    This is a blog from John Infante of the NCAA. While it doesn't mention specific cases or examples, I can't help but think Infante's comments shine a favorable light on Enes Kanter's situation.

    Re: University of Kentucky Men's Basketball - 6th edition

    Definitely a turn around from the Pikeville game. 122-54 the final tonight.

    Terrence Jones busted through with 23 points, 10 rebounds, and 6 assists.

    Brandon Knight finished with 20 pts and 6 assists

    Jon Hood had 18 points and made four three's

    Shot 25 of 31 in the second half and over 70 percent for the game.

    Re: University of Kentucky Men's Basketball - 6th edition

    That game was just a glimpse... (the competition was awful, but the cohesiveness and unselfishness looked like a veteran squad, to be honest. This team's overall IQ is off the charts.)

    Don't make early season proclamations about these young, hyper-talented Calipari squads. Just don't do it. You'll probably end up being wrong.

    Cal didn't call this maybe his best jump shooting team for nothing...
