A Sound of Wailing Ran from Piraeus Through the Long Walls to the City, One Man Passing on the News to Another…

This is ugly. Take a look at the Jerry Tipton and John Clay twitter feeds to get a sense of the emotional dead space at the core of Big Blue Nation.

… post-game press conference even more ugly, if possible:

“We’ve got a couple of guys that are basically not real coachable,” said John Calipari after his worst loss in four years as UK’s coach. “You tell them over and over what we want to do, what we have to do, and they do their own thing. That’s where we are.”

    God dies each year between the Super Bowl and Opening Day.

  2. efgoldman:

    Clearly, its time to fire John Calipari and get a real coach.

  3. cpinva:

    oh my, that is…………..bad.

    I hate the end of football season, pro and college.
    And yet, I freely join the bitching that there are too many bowls, and that the championship should be decided by New Year’s.
    Hey, I’m a fan. Sometimes we can be as logic-free as Republicans.

    Does Joker Phillips have a job yet?

  6. Wyrm1:

    Well, when you cycle in 5-6 one and done players each year, team chemistry can be an issue. Sort of comes with the territory of recruiting those folks.

    in four years as UK’s coach.

    As a citizen of the United Kingdom I wish to make it clear that he is not and never has been our coach at anything.

  8. olexicon:

    Nope, he has been replaced by Mark Stoops, I think he has a job as an assistant somewhere

  9. MacGyver:

    He was hired as the WR coach at Florida within days of his firing.

    The Miami Hurricanes are eminently likeable this year, and have already clobbered both Duke and the Tarheels.

  11. Cody:

    And not a single tear was shed in Louisville!

    Seriously though. Coach should be more careful with his words. You don’t want to go around bad-mouthing your new recruits, because your only hope for winning next year is convincing other recruits you’re not going to badmouth THEM.

    Last thing he can afford is to scare off any talent.

    Next year those one-and-done 17yr-old stars can look forward to meeting Mr Jerrone Maymon. That will be a thing of exquisite beauty, rivalling this weekend’s dismantling of two traditional rivals by the Big Orange – Ky by the men and Vandy by the women.

    Best of luck to y’all!
