  2. I think it's mainly the message board tough guys that give most schools a bad rap (including ours).

    This happens everywhere, Kentucky is just able to take it to the next level with their funding and boosters. One of my friends mom would hand out stacks of target gift cards to IU Bball players under Davis and Sampson. Bracey Wright got a brand new sports car the moment he showed up on campus. back to UK tho, I recall a story where Ryan Harrow was seen leaving the U.K. Facilities with a couple briefcases allegedly stuffed with cash...
  5. I feel awful for the fans that actually traveled to Maui... What an embarrassing showing by our team...

    The Maui Tourney I think is contracted years in advance. It's kinda wonky.  I think we got our invitation the year we beat UK and everyone thought "we were back" for good!   I remember reading somewhere that UK and some other schools actually turned down the Maui Tourney in place of other domestic tournaments.  Lemme see if I can dig up an article or something.   Update: https://www.google.com/webhp?sourceid=chrome-instant&ion=1&espv=2&ie=UTF-8#q=kentucky%20turns%20down%20maui%20invitational   Looks like they turned it down back during April 2013.  Mentioned traveling being a burden. /shrug

      The harsh truth is... we're just not elite anymore.   It's a shame that a team like MSU is playing in it, instead of us.
  8.   Irony is I think Poythress is a 4.0 student and Academic AA or something....
  9. The sad thing is... and it's also my biggest concern is that, it's starting to become the standard now. Duke and Coach K are emulating the same system/process.  Scary to think it's one of those... "get on board, or get left behind" type of scenarios.

    OT: ATO fraternity done at IU

    Not surprised. They were kicked out of their house my senior year.  Everyone referred to them as ATSnow for a reason :)
  11.   i fricking hate that term "student athlete" it was just a slick term the NCAA came up with to justify not paying athletes :c

  13. I agree with you, to a certain extent. I think we are much more than a mid-major program, despite our winning percentages. I would put us as a top 25 program, but no longer with the rest of the ELITE/Blue blood programs.  Whats keeping us relative is the history, fans, and support.   of course I could be totally misunderstanding your post if it's just a matter of semantics when it comes to what you consider "Elite" xD. When I think elite, I think annual final four contenders, top 1 or 2 of conference every season... etc

    Can we all at least agree that...

      Damnit, you ruined it when you mentioned it was a metapho! I totally would've been down for running Crean over with a train. especially for his coaching and substitution patterns
