Filthy like garbage filthy? Cuz you nailed it if so
I stated before the season that this Duke team wouldn't be close to 2015 UK simply because their defense would be mediocre. I remember The Dude specifically brushing hat notion off. Well, anyone with a brain looked at their personnel and knew they weren't going to be good defensively, but if course Duke fans just said no while kicking and screaming. Not only was their defense always going to be a problem bit their offense was too. We all saw how selfish Tatum was before the season started and said that would kill chemistry, not to mention the fact that they didn't have a true PG to get it right. At the least though I thought they could play iso and still be good offensively, but that hasn't happened. All this is to say though that their defensive issues weren't going to be fixed with their injured players being back and neither were their chemistry issues on offense. Again, Duke fans denied this kicking and screaming. Turns out, they're just crazy homer idiots like they always want to label UK fans of being.
Quite a few junior and senior contributors, you say?! Can you name said juniors and seniors?! This is absolutely false and surely you know that it is. I like how you snuck "sophomores also" in there. Pretty slick, but not slick enough. I don't believe I said anything regarding sophomores at all, whatsoever. Anyway, let's hear about these "quite a few" junior and senior contributors that Cal has had while at UK....
Poythress, Hawkins and Willis to name a few.
I don't follow Kentucky so no idea on minutes played, but I do know these young men contributed.
So 3 in an 8 year period?
I will name them later. WCS and Harrelson were two. There really hasn't been that many, though.
Derrick Thornton could probably help this team imo.
The only ones worth mention, guys that actually played major minutes before they were juniors or seniors were Patterson, WCS, Poythress, Miller and Liggins.
Harrelson was huge for us in 2011 but he wouldn't have played much had Kanter not been ruled out.
Poythress blew his knee early in his junior year and probably wasn't 100% until near the end of his senior year.
Heck, Willis really didn't start playing a ton of minutes until the mid point of last season. Hawkins still doesn't play a ton. He's been solid this season when he has though.
So in other words, you tried to debate about something that you don't know anything about but acted like you did. Yep, pretty much.
Wrong. But I am not going to waste posts on a fan of a school that Duke never plays.
Well, I sure as hell can't tell. You seem to do that quite frequently with Kentucky fans. Also, I'm not wrong. Sounded good, though. Shall I go into detail about how little I'm wrong, or is it pretty self explanatory?!
One could make a case for Polson. So, what is that, less than 10?! Boy, that sure is a plethora of contributing juniors and seniors that Cal has had at Kentucky, in 8 seasons, nonetheless. I tell ya.
he is playing better than any guard on uk.
What say you now?
Monk is nice, but he's a gunner. Fox is a gunner disguised as a PG. That offense comes to a grinding halt in the half court. Neither are equipped at this time to flourish in anything but tempo. I thought Monk would be more likely to struggle than Fox. Both obviously have potential, but bball IQ is severely lacking. This is just as I suspecting when I wrote my original comment 6 months ago that you bumped.
I'd take Kennard over both quite easily and Allen is starting to round into pre-season projections form over the past few weeks. Both are playing better than any guard on Kentucky right now.
Are you a Duke fan?
....Never? Your team is 9-12 vs. UK
Congrats on Knox wallboogie
Here we go with this sheet again.
Wait for it...
"I don't understand, why are these freshman playing so selfishly?."
"I don't understand, why don't these guys play defense more often?"
"I just don't understand why these guys haven't jelled yet, its mid February."
"I just don't understand why they're getting outworked by those less talented players, I don't care if they're 3-4 years older this shouldn't be happening, I don't understand."
"This team is soft, I just don't understand."
Wait for it.
Kentucky fans? Duke 2015 NC's.
You desperately need some new material.
You are trying too hard. Especially seeing how this thread wasn't claiming Duke would go 40-0 and even more importantly, it wasn't even started by a Duke fan.
A year later
Retro rewind this shiznit
We've assembled the greatest recruiting class in the history of college basketball...again.
K is always redefining greatness.
Could have helped last year, MUCH more. He would have been the only PG on a team needing a PG.
Oh nooooooo. Duke ran him off to make room for Bolden at C when we already had folks that could fill that void reasonably well. Duke kicks off only PG on roster, after playing 30+ minutes a game as a true freshman, to make room for Bolden. Smh
Isiah Briscoe was the number 1 pg in his class. Does this change your opinion?
Oz, I never understood that reasoning. It seems far fetched even for people trying to be out there. The keys to the team were in DT's hands if he wanted them. He chose another option. Blaming bringing in Bolden is undeniably dumb.
If DT was at Duke this coming year, Duval would have went elsewhere IMO and Duke most likely doesn't pursue him like they did.
Agree on all fronts!
Offense wins reputations. Defense wins games.
Shooting and defense could be the reason they don't win it all
Defense won't be the reason.
Got a Chris Bosh Clone in Bagley (for those who have watched Bosh in HS, he was a nightmare) except Bosh was a much better shooter at the same stage
He is way better then bosh
