• you know, as I spend multiple ways of trying to use my time during the day I like to scroll through ummm - - YES other teams sites. Now I know I’m not the ONLY one that does this - -but Rupp’s Rafters just kills me.

    They post threads – multiple threads about KU, now I know on " the shiver " and others that yes we also do the same about them, BUT I dunno it just seem to me as to the same degree. I mean SOME of these threads on there is almost to funny lol, and yet they talk about how OTHER teams - - fans are infatuiated with them. Some times I go there for the laugh. - - I feel they are paranoid. - -If THEY are so good why they worried about our threads, the same can be said for them. They say others are obsessed to which I say look in the mirror lol

    Their latest episode today was talking about or titled " Hey Kansas " then goes on to make comments about - - see you soon- - -how Frank doesn’t stand a snowball’s chance in hell = - -how they hay MR " Triple Double" - -the kid has had ONE game with a Triple Double, for GOD’S sakes. - - Now I’m not saying he isn’t any good- - - -he is plenty good, but to say Frank doesn’t stand a snowballs chance in hell? - - Seriously?

    They follow that up with the continued belly aching about the officals from last year- - how they got cooked and how we won’t have that this year - - how they will pound us by 40 lmao I’m sorry yes it’s trolling on my part - -BUT really I mean come on, I can understand logical banter back and forth BUT some of the statements they make - -holy shit. I need to et ahold of some of the stuff they are hitting the pipe with, I sure could use some to take this pain out of my back.

    Just not logical statements - -saying they can’t wit. – but anyways makes for some amusing reading, again they talk about people being infatuiated , obsessed, with them - - ummm look at it from others side idiots – talk about calling the kettle black lmao - - - -ROCK CHALK ALL DAY LONG BABY

  • Hey on a side note Lost my old profile decal on here somehow. Some explained a long time ago how I could put on up, can someone please help me as I don’t really get off on my little decal being a purple dot - - thanks - -ROCK CHALK ALL DAY LONG BABY

  • @jayballer54 I saw the purple and was expecting you to start posting some stuff in Korean. How is the recovery coming along? Still rehabbing?

  • @mayjay hey , no, no re-hab anymore BUT I dunno at times something just doesn’t feel right. - - have some problems stepping up onto a step at times, knee feels weak. Then at times like I was just laying in the bed last night and it woke me up out of a dead sleep. Real shearing pain – throbbing all around my knee cap and then in the outter side of my leg just below my kneecap, hurt like hell. For the most part ok I recekon, but a few times it like JUMPIN - - GEE – HOSSIE - -FATS lo really hurts Ahh I’ll be allright, thanks for asking appreciated. – -ROCK CHALK ALL DAY LONG BABY

  • @jayballer54 Sorry to hear that! Pain can be a warning. Or it can be the body still adjusting to all the indignities. Get it checked out. Don’t want a minor problem to get bad! Good luck–I have been thinking about your recovery for months and hoping it was going well.

  • @jayballer54 I do believe you are related to jethro Jumping gee hossie fat

  • @Crimsonorblue22 @jayballer54 just needs to stop jumpin’ on all them FAT HOSSIES!

    You know I never could understand the love and respect UK gets for it’s basketball program. I remember a couple years the words Roman Empire and UK basketball one being used one in the same. I get the east coast basis but this love relationship with UK goes beyond just Espn and the east coast mafia.

    Even in this day and age of political correctness, UK basketball gets a free pass. Just last year the country and the BLM groups were in a fervor to remove the confederate flag and plaques associated with slavery and racism. Hello? UK was like the most racist college there was. Where’s the blow back on them?

    Lets not forget UK’s history of cheating and giving the game a black eye. How many times have they flirted with receiving the death penalty?

    I will say this about UK fans. They are as fanatical as any fan. They’ll come in droves and out of the word work to watch their beloved Wildcats play. Their fans dominate NCAA sites when UK shows up.

    Either way it’s interesting what you find when your trolling. .

  • Have to admit that I am a bit surprised that no UK “violation” talks have occurred yet under Coach Cal. What’s the over under in years for an investigation into their program? LOL

  • @mayjay ya thanks a lot - -and I know - -just hate going back and maybe the possibilities but your right - -gonna have to get it checked for sure - -again I appreciate your thoughts. good to have friends like yourself - -ROCK CHALK ALL DAY LONG BABY

  • @Crimsonorblue22 Lmao, ya you could just be right lol - - -ROCK CHALK ALL DAY LONG BABY

  • @rocketdog That’s funny lmao - - -I like that, lol- -ROCK CHALK ALL DAY LONG BABY

  • @DoubleDD YA maybe shouldn’t troll but find it interesting as to what other basketball fans are talking about lol, just bored lmao - - -ROCK CHALK ALL DAY LONG BABY

  • @jayballer54

    It’s difficult for still-billies to post soberly, while they are hooked up to Jim Beam IV drips.

  • Pro-tip: Don’t read rupps rafters.

  • @jaybate-1.0 Now who said anything about Jim Beam lol - - -ROCK CHALK ALL DAY LONG BABY

  • @BShark Good Idea lol

  • @jayballer54 said:

    @BShark Good Idea lol

    It’s basically Tigerboard except they have a good team. Just brutal.

  • @jayballer54 I was looking at Kentuckys non conference schedule so far. They havent played near as tough a schedule as KU has. Not even close! Sure they are blowing teams out by 50 points. They are all ranked out of the top 100 schools. Except Michigan St and UCLA. Everyone else, CUPCAKE!!

    I think UCLA should kick their butts. I think we could be them in their own house too. Kentucky has not faced a team as good as KU and likely will not even when they get to their conference schedule. Patty cake, the SEC is weak as F%$#

  • @jayballer54 Dude, keep doing your physical therapy exercises. dont quit that stuff.

    @jayballer54 Dude, keep doing your physical therapy exercises. dont quit that stuff.

    I feel like I missed something here.

  • @BShark no not really, they are talking about the re-hab on my knee, that I had surgery on awhile back – -having some issues they just showing some conern and thoughts for me - - not re-habbing they are done with that BUT my knee woke me up out of a dead sleep last night - -felt like someone was driving a knife into my knee cap and then throbbing really bad down the outside part just below my knee cap - - like has been said I’m just going to have to call and get it check - -AGAIN if it keeps it up – - thanks for the thoughts my friends - - -ROCK CHALK ALL DAY LONG BABY

  • @BShark 2 knee surgeries

  • @Lulufulu

    The UCLA match-up should be a good game, fast pace but its in Rupp. I think Cal is 124-4 at Rupp. Unlikely they lose at home where the whistle will be in their favor. UCLA will have to match guard play and if they are smart will zone Kentucky to force outside shots. Ball vs Fox- exciting to see 2 future NBA PG’s go at it. It should be a fairly close game if UCLA comes to play on the road

  • @jayballer54

    Let the chip building begin. We need our guys psyched when they go into Rupp… because it is a tough place to win.

    And the strange factor is having this game smack down in the middle of Big 12 season. I don’t get that. How do we put everything into a game that is just window dressing and something for pollsters while we are entrenched in winning #13?

    Anything is possible in that game in Lexington. It may just boil down to who has the hot hand.

    I’d like to see our defense turn on the pressure and get lots of steals. That would truly be an avenue for “stealing one” in Rupp.

  • @BShark Jayball’s had a surgery on his knee, I believe. My nurse brain just kicks in when people talk about medical stuff here and I feel it is my duty as an RN to give people feed back on things related.

  • @jayballer54 Oh man, if your having pains like that bad, absolutely call your DR!! If your PT exercises are causing you pain, dont do them until your Doc says you can. But seriously, go get checked again my man. Increased pain post surgery is not really a good thing. Best wishes and good luck dude.

  • @BeddieKU23 UCLA imo is by far the best opponent Kentucky has faced all season. Michigan St is a shadow of their former selves from last year. All the other teams have been major cupcakes. UCLA may not win in RUPP, I agree about the tough environment there, BUT if UCLA can keep the game close, I like their chances at a win.
    On the same note, I like KU’s chances at winning at RUPP too. Kentucky wont face a team as good as KU until late into March. The SEC is so weak and their non conference schedule has been pathetic.

  • @Lulufulu

    I agree this is definitely the toughest game for Kentucky so far this season. UCLA will need to rebound the ball. limit transition and get some production other than Leaf from the post. The freshman post they just got back could be a key guy as he can offer some rim protection. If UCLA plays M2M defense, honestly they are up against it, Kentucky has 1 perimeter threat and I feel this is the first team with talent that could exploit their weak 3 point shooting. I don’t think UK has earned the #1 spot but if they beat UCLA that will validate them

    Kentucky also plays UNC & Louisville before KU comes in January. Both of those games should be stellar, wouldn’t mind seeing them lose both🕶

  • @BeddieKU23 You do have to respect Cal’s willingness to play a heck of a lot of tough nonconference games. He gives his fans an exciting product (despite whatever else we can say about him).

  • @mayjay

    Definitely he’s consistently playing UNC, Louisville & the Champions Classic. As long as the SEC/Big-12 goes on it seems like KU/UK will play every year.

  • @BeddieKU23

    Yeah the conferences would be super dumb to not have the KU/UK match-up be annual.

  • @BShark

    I wonder what they will do next year when KU has to play UK in the Champions Classic. Can we really play them twice? Florida or A&M would be the next choices I would assume but neither of them would bring the Challenge star power like KU/UK does…

  • @BeddieKU23 Hmmmm, you bring up a good question? - - I don’t think they would have us match up twice in the regular season - - - do you? - - -ROCK CHALK ALL DAY LONG BABY

  • @jayballer54 Why wouldn’t they? Imagine the TV ratings of game 2 if game 1 was an OT classic or something like that. I could see it happening. I hope it does actually.

    But you guys are probably right, they won’t do that. It could make for some damn good basketball though.

  • @Kcmatt7

    You made a compelling argument for why they should do it.

  • @BeddieKU23

    Good point I didn’t think about this. Probably Florida.

  • Kentucky is in a lot of our heads. Same with Duke. Me personally, I wouldn’t spend a second reading the Kentucky versions of our KUBuckets.

    In 1986 KU played fellow final four team Louisville two times in the regular season.

  • I would not be at all surprised if KU and South Carolina would play in the Kentucky “Double?” year. Frank Martin has really taken this program to a new level, is very anxious to up his SOS after last year’s tourney snub, and it would be a great renewal of the old coaching rivalry…

  • @mayjay I love Frank Martin! He gave to trobs sisters fund.

  • @Crimsonorblue22 Frank Martin seems like a great guy off of the court. He is tough and verbal with his players, but he seems like the type of guy you can tell isn’t yelling at the person, he is yelling at the player. If that makes sense?

    Like it is nothing personal with him. He loves his players. But when they are on the court it is 110% - 110% of the time.

    I can’t believe KState let him go. Huge mistake. South Carolina got a great coach. And he is only 50. So he could be around for quite some time. Which is good. Glad to see someone besides Kentucky running an actual program.

  • @Kcmatt7 my boys would play for him or knight!

  • @Kcmatt7

    I have a lot of respect for Frank Martin. Even when his on court demeanor would indicate otherwise, he is one classy individual.

  • @wissox not a even a nano-second…

  • @Kcmatt7

    No doubt about it Bruce was a major downgrade.

  • @BShark

    But there is a case to be made that the head hair from Martin to Weber was a sideways move for KSU.

  • @DoubleDD UK is the “groomed and accepted villain” in the heirarchy of the east coast media marketing machine. Colorful coach. Colorful history. Top recruits. Always contending. Put Louisville in that same group–colorful coach. Usually contending.

    What am I saying? You cant just have Duke play UNC over and over again. Need interesting ‘enemies’ for the ACC. KU and UCLA would be other interesting ‘competitors’ sitting just outside the inner circle fence…, as is Tom Izzo and MichSt…

  • @hawkmoon2020 At KY, Calipari doesnt have to recruit dirty, like he did with Rose at Memphis. The Enos Kanter thing was quickly exposed, and he was deemed ineligible. Calipari truly does have his pick from the top 15. Now, his concept and playstyle are proven. His path to the NBA is proven. A true OAD/2AD factory. No worries though.

  • Tucky is going to curb stomp the UCLANS, imo. I want the media to anoint Tucky as all that and a bag of chips, so when our guards lay waste to their freshmen guards in Rupp, they’ll have a litter of kittens.
