PKM, if you need a hug I am here for you.
PKM, I see that you still have not talked about the game yesterday. Losing the first home game in the Calipari must be hard. I feel for ya. I'd offer something to cry on but I think Cy's offer is too good to pass up.
Cy is a Baker, he doesn't work fast food. Don't make that mistake, he doesn't like it.
Yeah, it was tough. This team kind of reminds me of the Jazz. No true/elite PG. No true leader. No true/elite lockdown defender.
We've had those identities each of the past years under Calipari. You know it's a PG drought when Cal didn't even get one. There's no disputing he's owned that position for many years.
Like the commentators said in the Baylor game, though. "You teams better get your licks in on UK this year. They won it all next year and they'll be nearly unbeatable next year."
We'll still be good this year, but easily the weakest team of the Calipari era .. this looks like an Elite8 team to me.
What I mean, though, is a G/wing defender. MKG last year .. we could have him guard 4 positions and lock the guy down. That makes for a great identity. The year before that was Andre Liggins .. This year we have great defensive players, but no one that has embraced the role of defensive enforcer.
Is Trey Burke a good enough athlete to make up for his lack of size? He is obviously very skilled, good shooter, great passer, great floor leader, great feel for the game. But he is still only 6' 180. Thats really small for someone who isnt an elite athlete.
