Oh No! Not Again….

Category: Random Notes

After coming home from the ER last night from suffering another “Loss Induced” heart attack, I couldn’t do anything but think about what an awful display of basketball I had just endured. My faith in this team slowly slipped away as I realized that they are too exhausted, too young and just don’t care enough to win.

What is it gonna take to win on the road? Oh wait, I’ve  already answered that question before and the Cats still have not produced a conference victory on the road that really counts (first person to leave a comment about South Carolina gets banned from the site). The Cats played a horrible Arkansas team that would struggle to beat an under 17 AAU team on a good day.  In typical fashion Kentucky looked like a bunch elementary school kids playing H.O.R.S.E. in the gym.

Terrance Jones didn’t pass, got blocked or double teamed, and pouted like a 4 year old the entire game. He had a lousy 10 pts and 8 rebounds, and needs to grow up and step up his game.  He’s supposed to be one of the best players in the country and he couldn’t even get a double double against Arkansas? If Cal could have benched his ass he would have but Lamb was in his spot. Which brings me to my next point.

Cal hasn’t had the ability to just bench a player to punish him obviously because the lack of depth. Last night he must have decided to throw that idea out because Lamb sat for at least 25 minutes. I don’t blame Cal for doing it either. Lamb didn’t play defense and got out hustled on every possession. It was really the first time he didn’t play offense either, 2 pts 0 rebounds, I could have been more productive than that.

Brandon Knight, who always shows up, and Jorts, who had a double double and a ferocity to win, were really the only consistent players last night. Darius played ok but still looks like he is struggling with being a confident player. For now he is a variable player that switches on and off too frequently (I think his new nickname should be DMX, Darius Miller Unknown). He needs to learn some  cockiness from Liggins.

Speaking of Liggins, he should be smacked for his temper tantrum which lead to the technical foul. That’s the second time he’s had a circus side show in the middle of the game that has lead to getting T’d up! I appreciate your passion, but don’t take it too far to where you’re possibly changing the outcome of a game.

As much as I hate to say it, I think the best thing for this team could possibly be to lose in the first round of the SEC tournament and get some rest. I can’t see that playing four days of continuous basketball is gonna do the Cats any good. I have a feeling that if Kentucky doesn’t find it’s rhythm before the NCCA  tournament begins, Kentucky fans will end up cheering on other teams to beat Louisville because the Cats will get knocked out early.

I’ve been optimistic all season hoping that Kentucky would find a cohesion that would lead them down a road filled with victory and glory, but my optimism has worn off and all I can see is a dark alley filled with broken hearts and shattered dreams. Come on Cats, prove me wrong.

Carson? You gonna stand up for yourself?

Carson Lilly said on 02/24/2011 7:40 PM

Jason, if you’ve been looking to get banned, why bother even coming to the site? Sounds pretty unintelligent to me to spend time doing something you don’t like. You must be a Louisville fan, illogical and filled with delusions of grandeur.

Justin, stating facts about the uncertainty of Kentucky basketball is hardly a tempur tantrum, it’s an objective analysis. You can find the definition of both if you just type them in to google.
