Same thing you said at beginning of the season. Then 78-70 happened.
Yet we’re ranked way higher and have no bad losses. UK does, and will flame out early due to lack of shooting.
^^^^desperately clinging to 'moral victories'.
^ deflecting to an ooc game that didn’t hurt our resume, but avoiding a sub 200 loss that will kill your teams seeding.
I love this merry go round. It never ends, but it’s funny to watch you repeat the same frivolous arguments while disregarding your teams future seeding. “Moral victory” is very ironic in this case...
In 10 seasons with Cal, we have made the elite eight or better in 7 of them. I’m not saying we should be favorites by any means, bad loses are bad loses, but no one would be surprised if we made a run. Guards win titles, we have three very good ones.
I'm not into projecting/speculation like you. There are no titles or trophies for rankings or potential seeding. U6 has a lofty record and ranking right now, but looking in to it further it's easy to see it's built on a foundation of sand. The fact of the matter remains.... at the end of the day, your team played mine....and again, your team lost. So you'll have to forgive me for not taking the U6 hype you're here each day trying to get everyone to buy into seriously. Your team is under .500 against good comp. Not a quality you want going into March.
Keep downgrading to make yourself feel better. It’s funny. We’re not under 500 against good comp that’s a mere opinion, and a bad one at that. Also, seeding does matter, and if you continue to lose to lesser competition in conference play it will affect your chances at a solid tourney run. Also, I’m not trying to get you to “buy” into anything. Anyone that isn’t a troll or hater (non UK fans) see Louisville as a serious threat this year for a title run.
But you’re saying UL is not good because they have mostly feasted on scrubs and lost to the best comp they played. So...are your wins really better if UL isn’t any good?
That’s understandable, aside from your teams shooting. If Maxey or Quickey can’t provide points..UK is in trouble. I don’t disagree that you couldn’t make a run though, you obv could as could we. I just think it’s funny JC thinks our team isn’t good, when literally everyone in cbb thinks otherwise.
E8 at best. Any team running Ryan McMahon out there as much as they do is playing 4 vs 5. Your team isn't the level of 'threat' you think it is. As far as the 'good comp' your team has played, Miami (2x), Pitt (2x), BC, Georgia Tech, Wake, Clemson, NC State, ND, Akron, WKU, EKU, Indiana St., NC Central, Miami, OH, USC Upstate.... none of those qualify as 'good comp'. As stated before, you're sub .500 against good comp.
I told you if U6 beat UK this year, I'd say they were 'good'. They didn't.
So you’re still going with “we’re not good” lol ok..
His answer should be fascinating, but he’ll just continue to deflect and spin..per usual.
I'm not going to undersell Louisville at all. They have a great shot. Problem is, this year, I think 10 - 12 teams are all pretty close as far as odds.
Mich St., U6 and Texas Tech are the best wins on the resume right now for UK. U6's best wins are against Dook and a downward sliding Michigan team. The rest of their record is padded with chumps. They're not what '86 is trying to sell you.
McMahon has been playing a lot less and doesn’t even start. Dude comes off the bench and shoots 50% from 3. With DJ our backcourt is much more formidable and he only plays 20 mins a game. We’re deep, and talented. I know it’s a tough pill for you to swallow, but the only people agreeing with your notion of “we’re not good” is other uewkay fans.
“Downward sliding Michigan team” as Michigan state loses two in a row to Unranked Wisconsin and Penn State..
But UL isn’t any good. That’s what you keep saying. So how good of a win is it for UK, if they aren’t all that good?
Sounds like UK’s best wins are a decent Texas Tech team and an up and down Michigan State team...
This is good stuff. Now other fans realize the ******ation we deal with on a constant basis.
Yeah, like you predicting a win over UK every year only to be denied once again....OR.... you hyping up U6 all over again when it gets close to March only to be gone after the first weekend...again. Insanity = doing the same thing over and over again, hoping for different results. Good luck with that.
You’re failing hard iTT. Take a nap.
Also let’s be honest, Michigan State and Michigan are okay but nothing to write home about, and T Tech has lost 8 games. UK has one good win against us, we have a good win against Duke.
Resume's are close if you take away our 2 bad loses. I know that's a lot, just bugs me we couldn't take care of those two bum teams. Could be the difference between a 2 and a 4, whether I like it or not.
.....and you keep trying to put lipstick on a pig.
I honestly don't think seeding is as important this year as in most. Its ridiculous how the parity is.
I’m glad the only person that agrees with you is yourself. Now go pat yourself on the back with both hands.
It’ll matter if a team drops a few conference games and ends up an 8 or 9.
That’s pretty much what I’ve been trying to explain to JC the past 2 pages of this thread. The boy don’t listen.
I hear ya, but you're never gonna win this back and forth with me, 86... especially when you simply don't have facts on your side and continually resort to opinion/speculation/prediction/personal jabs. You can spin all you want, but you're not gaining any traction.
You should really take your own advice. Everything you’ve just said is the definition of thick irony, JC.
I mean, he is right though in the sense that U of L has a better resume than us right now. That would be hard to argue against. But you are correct in that we beat them as well. You guys just like talking to each other
When SCOREBOARD (in many more ways than just UK's last game vs U6) is on my side....the irony is your constant lame attempts to argue.
Listen to your brethren, they’re more level-headed.
Me and JC is like peas and carrots.
That's pretty funny. I bet you two would get along just fine over some beers and bongs
Did he actually say UL wasn’t any good? I didn't see that, I've seen him say repeatedly that Louisville isn't as good as some are saying they are.
Note: I have not read every post in this thread, so I could have missed where he said UofL sucked.
That reminds me, you ever planning a west coast trip?
Spread is -9 tomorrow @jhmossy @UL_1986
