Yeah that non flagrant call was awful. Duke always seems to catch breaks with officials though, similar to the Pats

Exactly just straight up blasted the kid way away from the play it was clearly a flagrant I think it should have been an ejection

Both teams are Very Good. Kansas has a lot more experience and that paid off as they hang on to win. Kentucky is young and still will be dangerous all season, next season probably unbeatable if nobody goes Pro.

Agreed. I am honestly not that upset about losing last night. UK played toe to toe with a team that could be a final 4 team.

Big win for IU. It's a long shot they make the tournament but you have to have a signature win outside the conference to even have a shot if your middle of the pack like we likely will be. I don't know how long it has been since I've watched an IU team that has had worse shooting in my life. Almost every single decent HS team in Indiana has a kid that can come in and knock down threes and we don't really have a single one. Going to be a long year! We could really use Romeo on this team next year as shooting will still be hard to come by...but all indications point to him playing in Nashville for an even worse Vanderbilt team.....just a slap in the face...hopefully things change with Archie locking down these Indiana kids.

That definitely was a fun game to watch.

Gonna take a year or two to get the Crean stench off of that team I guess.

Dang, IU is bad. Getting smoked by Fort Wayne 

Yes they are. First off they are AWFUL on defense...they have never been taught anything about valuing the ball or playing team defense. These guys have been pampered their whole careers at IU and it's going to take a house cleaning to bring in some tough nosed kids and ones that can shoot the ball. How sad is it that in the state of Indiana we can't find a single shooter to play for IU? What happened to those bulldog guards we used to get...the Coverdales, Fifes, AJ Moyas and so on that play with heart, and scrap, and yes can knock down a shot or make a big play. Crean definitely didn't recruit them...they must have all went to Butler while we searched the nation for the next Dwayne Wade. Until this team shows some heart we won't win much. They need to quit looking at the front of the other teams uniform in deciding if they are going to get up for the game and represent the front of their uniform. I know its college kids and these ups and downs happen but dang that was like a repeat of the ISU game....can't let a team go 17-30 from the 3 pt line.

 

We also need to quit scheduling in state non-conference games outside the Crossroads classic.....at least until we get the program respectable. Those kids that all got passed over by Crean come in and get up because they have something to prove. They continue to whip us year after year....just do what Kentucky does and bring in teams from Grand Canyon U or wherever...last thing we need is extra motivation against us when we are trying to rebuild a program.

Going to be an interesting year. UK not the UK of old...UNC losing at home to Woford. Arizona lost several early. Duke lost to BC. I think Izzo might have the best team come March. Will be fun to watch.

Yeah I think MSU has the best team right now. Of course it could change but as of today they should be  the favorite.

 

And yeah UK has a very good offense but they gotta get a better defense to contend. Hopefully they get it fixed throughout the year. UK should be a great defensive team as UK is a very big and long team. I think its mostly because they are a super young team and just don't communicate well, at least not yet.

Cal usually gets them better as the season goes along. Who knows in the long run this class may help UK if a few stay around and provide some leadership next year. That said I’m not sure they win the SEC. I don’t think they figure it out that fast. Maybe the SEC tournament because they typically do well in that and their fans travel so well.

So Kentucky beats a decent Louisville team by 30 and beats a good Georgia team yesterday and we dropped 1 spot in the AP poll. Makes sense in bizarre world maybe...

I don't like how they were jumped without losing that always aggravates me don't see how you punish a team for winning 

Early in the season the rankings are all over the place. It’s very hard to figure teams out until you see them play good competition or conference play. Do I know what UK is? Nope. They’ve played cupcakes all year...lost to Kansas who we though might be good but are seeing aren’t that great. Got beat by UCLA who isn’t a top 25 team...hasn’t won a road game yet basically. Who knows what they are...they have beat VT, Georgia, and Louisville....all at home....and we don’t even know how good those teams are....tough to tell. What happens is as teams start showing who they are we will see how good they are. Take Purdue for example....haven’t done much lately but now we see how good that Butler win really is and they get a bounce effect even a few weeks later. If this happened in February I’d say ok you got a point but it’s too early to tell. I agree Michigan State is my favorite to be #1 but then again they have been playing cupcakes for weeks now and that Notre Dame win doesn’t look that hot since IU beat them. Just be patient...sometimes it takes a couple weeks for a win or loss to really see movement because we need corrections until we know how good or bad those are.

    • Funny you brought this up.  I just listened to an interview Ballard did today with Rich Eisen.  He asked him if he has given any thought on how many quarterbacks will be taken before our pick and how many does he think.  He said sure we go through those evaluations.  It helps us with for planning purposes.  He asked him how many.  4 or 5 or 6?   He laughed out loud at 6.  He said Rich if it’s 6 we will be so excited.  Let’s hope so.  He also said the draft board is not yet set.  Won’t be until the night before the draft.  He also said he has had multiple conversations with other GM’s concerning the draft.  Preparing themselves for opportunities that could take place.  And they will continue up until the draft starts.  He said trade conversations won’t really materialize until you are within three picks of any trade.  Giving you time to finalize it.  Interesting interview.  Oh he pretty much ruled out moving up for Harrison.   Going up into the top of the draft would be very costly for him he said.  Thinks he’s a great talent but he thinks he’s pretty much out of our reach.
    • I personally wouldn’t touch Williams with a 10 foot pole. He seems like a distraction and cancerous. He may be Uber talented but I don’t feel like he is a winner, and don’t feel like his heart is in it. I think he gets the bag and just sets it on cruise control. There is absolutely nothing to base this off of aside from my gut feeling.  Maye Daniels  Penix Nix McCarthy   Maye is your prototype passer and I think his deficiencies are easily fixed with good coaching.   Daniels seems the most limited to me, proficient and will be very dependent on where he goes.    Will always have a soft spot for Penix, he throws such a pretty deep ball. His 40 time should have opened some eyes.   Nix is probably the safest pick IMO. I think he’s got the tools to fit nearly any offense. Has the athleticism, arm talent and I think he’s got the between the ears to excel in most offenses.   I see the appeal with McCarthy, he was as unselfish as they come allowing the run game to shine instead of checking to pass plays. I think his ceiling is a solid game manager.  
    • I'd imagine he's going bald. Most men his age usually are when they start sporting the caps 24/7.
    • Did I say something dumb? Maybe give reasons why one should trust and agree with Ballard's team building philosophy going into his 8th season. He's been pretty average to, dare I say it, below average so far into his tenure.
