Same ole story for Cats. Day late and a dollar short. They will probably lose 3 of their last 4 games and that means ll losses. 11 of their 20 wins were against also rans. Come on Cats. Get your act together. If you don't and make it to the NCAAs you will go out in first round.

I'm afraid the writing is on the wall for the cats. We have finally won the coveted title of middle of the pack against the SEC. If we played 10 ranked teams we would lose 10. Tubby would say we didn't execute. We didn't rebound. We didn't play smart. We didn't get the ball inside. We took too many bad shots. Even Morris states his head wasn't in it.

Excuse me!! How can that be at this time of the year. How much longer is the University brass going to expect the fans to be loyal. This is embarassing to watch.

Ten loss Tubby is on track again. He has managed to fool everyone in the NCAA basketball elite. They all say what a great coach he is and how lucky Kentucky is to have him. What has he done with his recruits?????? He has managed to sink to the middle of the SEC. I heard one sportscaster say that the team Kentucky was playing had better talent than Kentucky. When have you ever heard that before. Tubby's defense is good but his offense is absolutely the worst. I would rather watch paint dry than to watch Kentucky. I have been a fan for over 45 years. I find myself watching Louisville and wishing Rick had never left. However, Tubby has a job for as long as he wants. Kentucky is afraid of the race card being played. After all we have been labeled as being racist. I don't care what color the coach is I just want Kentucky to get back to the top again. We used to go into gyms in the SEC and know we were going to win. Now we just hope we can compete. How long has it been since we have been ranked in the top ten? How long has it been since we made it to the final four? I rest my case..

I am so ready for a change in the coaching position at U.K.!!!!! Tubby Smith does not have a clue how to recruit or to out scheme anybody. We once again have a point guard (Jasper) who came into the program with no outside shot. I know he is a freshman but what does he bring to the table. He can't shoot and has no quickness to get by anyone. But he is the perfect fit for Tubby's slowdown methodical losing system.I trully believe that they could have beaten Alabama if Tubby would have been absent for the game. They score points quickly and in bunches when they run and get out of Tubby's outdated system. Be ready for another quick exit from the NCAA. Thanks Tubby for bringing our program farther down each year you coach. What a fraud!!!!!!!!!!

Isn't it weird that we as Kentucky fans are looking "FORWARD" to football??? Teams used to be afraid to come into Rupp Arena, now they are not scared; they come in and we are intemidated and not only that - WE ARE LOSING!

I've never seen Kentucky go so long without getting their first basket in a game against Alabama (of all teams)!

How bad does the score have to be before something is going to be done? How many more loses can we afford? The "DANCE" - talk about losing in the first or second round, we may be one of the ugly "wallflowers" that doesn't even get an invitation!!!

I am tired of standing up for Tubby. I see the players play their heart out because they have to overcome Tubby. Please somebody help us. UK has gone from a 5 or 6 seed to a 9 or worse. The 9th place seed has to play a higher seed. Just what we need to go one and out. Maybe all the Tubby supporters are happy with a 9-10- or 11 seed or worse.

u know jesse i disagree with u about one thing. There is no player on this team except for the freshman that play their hearts out. they look lazy(Morris) selfish (crawford) and lost (bradley) and please lets not forget thomas and perry who i pray have a great degree becase there basketball careers are doomed. i guess it is easy sitting in my basement surrounded by all my kentucky stuff, drinking a ice cold bud to say all this becasue i dont have to play but damn im really discouraged.
