The fact that you felt the need to "attack" anything is a huge part of the problem i pointed out. In fact, most aren't "attacking" anything. They're "protecting" from anything that would countermand or disrupt their pre-existing hatred.
thanks made my response much easier.
You must need a lot of hay for your strawmen.
Hi look, self proclaimed victory!
What a moment.
The truth doesnt hurt me at all as long as it is the truth. For the most part its not what you meant to say but the way you said it. I have no problem with posters defending Cal, I have done it myself and defending the players agin I have done that myself. What I havent done is attack Calipari or the players, in fact I have been qiute suppotive. I have pointed out the very same thing Cal has put out that his players need to play competively. Idid say that and in other posts I have simply disagreed as to what the definition of effort is and how a player either chooses to play with effort or doesnt. Coach Cal to a lot of fans on this site can do no wrong and that simply isnt so. But I made it clear, if you read the appropriate post that I laid out the great results Cal has had since his hire. I dont blame Cal for the slow development of this years team he has Im sure has done everything in his power to make it possible for this to succeed, but the team hasnt responded as quickly as the previous 3 did. However the fact he put his money on Harrow becoming the PG that could lead this team to the promise land, and I havent given up on that, was his decision and not recruiting a backup PG was also his decision. Both decisions he will have to live with for better or worse, it remains to be seen.
If all you can do is debate the messenger and not the message then yes, I've won.

I honestly can't believe this thread has gone for 6 pages without a lockdown.
I think you have some valid points. What doesnt this team have that the other 3 teams did have? 1. A top notch point guard who was a PG when he was recruited. 2. Veteran players like Patterson,Miller,Liggins,Lamb and Jones who both were mentoers to the freshman and provided stability within Cals system. This year there arent any of those type of players and so this is going to be a work in progress but like I have said before by the time the middle of Jan. rolls around this team should be much better especially if a PG develops that can run the offense and be a defensive inspiration to the rest of the crew. I dont think Cal haas had a team like this before and he may even be learning on the job a little but I have faith he will come through. I have to be honest though I dont think this team will win it all this year unless it does what the Knight/Harrellson team did and that is become a team and trust each other. That team could have won #8 if they hadnt run into the buzzsaw that was 1 Conn. pl,ayer.
Weird post. So you're satisfied with their effort? Cal is there every day and he's not satisfied with their effort. The first story on this very site is about the lack of effort.
They are probably trying to see how many votes down this can get.
Come on guys! Click the red thumbs down!

Are you people nuts, or what? If the 2011 team didn't prove to you guys how good of a coach he is then nothing ever will. We aren't losing these games because of x's and o's or coaching. We're losing because we have an extremely young and inexperienced team, and they haven't bought into the fact that they have to play much much harder to win games on the college level. They haven't realized that, YET. To criticize Calipari right now, just because we've lost a few games, is totally ludicrous.
