    Of course, this is all predicated upon the ACC actually surviving as a viable conference which is not a foregone conclusion by any means. Florida State and Clemson want out of the ACC desperately and if that happens I think you'll see the entire conference crumble.
    Which is why I said the Maryland lawsuit is going to be pivotal. If they win Clemson and Florida State will head to the Big 12 and the rest of the conference will be free agents. I seriously want to see the SEC look at NC State.

    Va Tech and NC State to the SEC, UNC and DOOK to the B10, Fl St and Clemson to the B12?

    I think the B1G takes UVa over Duke, although Duke would bring in more fans from New Jersey than Rutgers.

    I liked Wiltjer running the offense through the high post. Think we may see more of that.

    Much more fluent with him rather than WCS or Noel since he can actually hurt you from out there

    This team doesn't deserve to make the NCAAT as far as I'm concerned.

    Archie Goodwin is a cancer.

    Everything I loved about last year's team seems to be lacking with these guys. Asides from Noel.

    Re: UK Basketball 8th Edition

    Felt sort of bad tonight for Noel as he was battling inside all by himself.
    I know Bama played better defense in second half but some of the shots Goodwin and Harrow were throwing up were almost laughable and Wiltjer dissappeared till the last 5 minutes.
    The one comment Conley made was kind of funny : " Goodwin is throwing up alot of shots that have no chance of going in. "
    Mr Conley, that is what we have been watching all season.

    Officially, Harrow and Goodwin were a combined 5-24 from the floor.
    Also , Archie played 35 minutes. So for all of us UK fans who dont care for his out of control, selfish type play, he very seldom seems to draw much of Cal's wrath.

    I think Drew Franklin from KSR put it best :

    This is not the University of Archie Goodwin.

    I've intentionally stayed out of this thread because I've been taking my frustrations out on other UK boards and its not been pretty.

    I absolutely loathe #10.

    I really believe after watching UCLA and Arizona tonight that Shabazz Muhammad was the missing piece to this season.

    Yep, literally just sent a tweet out saying that Shabazz's dad ruined his and UK's season.

    A win but yet a game UK should have won handily and didnt. In fact, a slip-up by officials helped near the end.

    This what a bunch of frosh are supposed to look like when tossed into the position they are in.
    ...and this one belongs to the Reds.

    Re: UK Basketball 8th Edition

    I found this quote about Goodwin from Cal.
    Excellent coaching move concerning his out of control drives:
    ďWhat weíre doing to help him with that is that heís not allowed to shoot lay-ups in practice. He must pull up in the lane and either shoot pull-up jumpers around the free-throw line or shoot runners. If he shoots a lay-up, itís a turnover.Ē

    Also, I would suggest if Archie continues to look for contact to shoot free-throws, he may want to do better than 5-9 or 7-13 when he gets there.

    I'd normally agree, but look at UCLA and the success they are having this season.

    The key is balance. The Kentucky teams Cal has had the past three seasons have had veterans on the team. This years team lacks that, outside of players who have mostly been benchwarmers their entire UK career (Polson and Hood).

    I knew this season would likely be a bridge year. I just expected them to start clicking by now. Noel has done fine and Poythress is starting to "get it". Archie Goodwin might be the one who makes or breaks this season.
