I don't want this team to make the tourney..not good enough..just end the season. NOW.
Good news. It can end for you. Stop watching.
Pretty obvious push on the harrow out of bounds play.
OP is right. This is one poor basketball team. But there is always next year with almost enitrely new team!
He's right a poor team. They don't talk on court and gave no clue what each other is doing
This is the first time all year I thought we aren't making the tourney...I was convinced we would win this game and play decent against Florida and in sec tourney make the big dance...we aren't makin it
To be honest this UK team does not deserve to be in and there are other teams that do. I cannot see them getting in the tourney over a team like UNC or Villanova. I hate to say it but it is what it is.
Calipari lost this team a few weeks ago. They have been hanging on to get the season over, and then these hotshots will go off to seek their fortunes in the NBA, which I find the thought of that completely laughable.
Uk deserves absolutely nothing. Fact is, these freshmen are just not special this year. If this crapfest were leading to some lessons learned for next season, I could give a pass. But knowing they will all leave anyway, I just see these guys as a huge waste of Kentucky's time. I just have a strong dislike for this group. This season was just a horrid failure.
Blaming the refs is silly. UK just has NO team...they have a collection of limited players who are without a leader...better hope the Harrison boys have leadership qualities...that said, three years of excitement, including two Final Fours and a NC...I'll take a year off for that....just go practice golf during March Madness..who cares.
This team is just flat out awful, and Archie is one of the most overrated "superstars" I have ever seen coming out of high school.
The thing that erks me is all of the dumb fouls, giving up offensive rebounds, and no defense. Its the lack of fundamentals that makes this so hard. Its almost criminal toward the game of basketball
U r right...I don't dislike any player on uk or will I ever...but these make me come close...and ppl might think they dont grow close to some guys cause of one and done but I absolutely loved knight Teague Davis mkg after only one year and even Noel...but these other guys turn me off more and more...I'll always root for them in the pros and where ever else they land but It won't be the same as the others...by not putting forth an effort worthy of Kentucky is beyond me you should feel such a pride playing for Kentucky and these guys just have 0 fire...very very very unfortunate for us fans who watch every game and support the team as hard as we can and care so much for the team for the team itself to not care is very disappointing...throughout the season when someone would say they just don't care or have no pride I would stand by the team and argue that they do have pride and heart but they prove me wrong over the past few games

But, that's me and your fault. Not goodwin's fault at all.
Did Goodwin come out and say that he was a superstar? Did he say he was one-and-done?
Was he even ranked that high? (Answer is NO) Just so you know, he isn't top 10 player. Never was...
We were all too high from last year and over-praised everyone.
It's a good learning lesson for all KY fans. I learned my lesson.
But then again, we did rank again while we had NN. :-) it just means we need 2 top 5 players.
This has been the least likable team to my memory. They have no soul and are entitled.
Is it football season yet?
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I, I took the one less traveled by, and it has made all the difference (Frost).
His actions will say he is one and done.
well, the way our fan base stabs at him, i wouldn't stay here either.
LOL, we get a freshman that plays like freshman and we crucify them. Sad really.
I think one thing that needs to happen in the future is our fan base needs to grow up and learn to be supportive. Most of us aren't seeing the big picture. At this point, if i was Poythress or Goodwin, i would say goodbye KY.
Well once again Archie proves to be the cancerous tumor that should have been removed long ago. I just don't understand it. Hood came in and played better than anyone else during the first half and then almost fails to see the floor during the second half while goodwin continues his BS that he has done all year. Look say what you want but that is Calipari's fault. I like coach Cal but that is just a stupid move on his part to allow Goodwin to continue that crap.
I'm done for the year...I have nothing to prove by continuing to watch this crap.
If they don't care, and by watching them all year I'd say half of them don't, then why should I waste my time watching anymore.
It is high time to be this critical of him because he has absolutely refused to try and change his bad habits. He knows that Calipari is not going to let Hood play over him no matter how many games he loses for us, so why would he try to change? Personally with his attitude I hope he does leave. I don't want him on next years team come hell or high water.
Pretty sure he doesn't give two crapshoot about fan opinion. He projects first round with guaranteed checks rather than sitting the bench at UK. Fans have very little to do with it.
Look, they are not good, but we have been spoiled to no end last few years. So, these kids just don't seem to get it. Frankly, neither did I at that age, but that is water under the bridge. We are loading up hugely for next year, but I will continue to watch them "compete". Not sure MKG would call what they do that, but I cannot speak for him. Cal doing what he can.
On a side note, it has allowed Stoops to get a foothold here. I have to say that what he is doing was almost unimaginable just like Cal 4 years ago. And got to give a shout out to Craig and Mitchell. Those guys have turned around VB and Women's BB. I think that is fantastic, I know Craig and his wife and they love it here, and he busts his ass big time.
I am a UK FBn1 and BB fan 2nd, but have to say, things are turning for the better here quickly. Imagine the early BCG days and Joker days and now look at this.
Thanks to MB for with his back against the wall doing the right thing. And also, thank you, thank you, thank you to UK for finally seeing that this is the SEC and putting the money and effort behind the king sport, SEC Football. GBB.
The fan base is on those players because they don't give effort or display an ounce of heart. That has nothing to do with being a freshman, it's not age specific. A ten year old could go out and bust his butt to win. Many people would agree with you if the fan base was on a kid for not being talented enough...that's not the case here and the criticism of these players is justified and their age isn't an excuse.
