UK dooming college basketball?

Postby Angry Whiteguy » Tue Dec 30, 2014 9:48 pm

I watched the Louisville-Kentucky game Saturday and came away with the perception that I had not witnessed basketball as I know it should be played. This is the only Kentucky game I saw this season. One team smothered its opponent, not randomly, but totally.

My belief is that Kentucky’s coach has planned, through recruitment and coaching tactics, to build a program that smothers and bullies opponents rather than play basketball the way it should be played.

Inevitably, this corruption of college basketball will doom the sport at the college level. No team wants to play that kind of program. I don’t understand how Kentucky’s players tolerate the loss of athletic play in their present up-and-down routine where true competition is never achieved.

The NCAA should reject this corrupted play before other schools reject submitting their programs to participate.

That's laughable. Talk about sore losers. Maybe if Chris Jones didn't try to flop, and play it up the rest of the half like he was hit, or if Louisville had more than 1 assist. That's right, 1 assist the entire game. I think if I were a Louisville fan I'd keep my mouth shut because you know come NCAA Tournament time the committee will have them in the same division.

In my opinion Andrew Harrison played a selfish game. Could be the reason he stunk the place up.

He's worried if he will be drafted in the first round.
