I'd say anyone expecting a national championship or playoff berth this year has their expectations too high. While it is certainly possible with the talent we have, it will be very difficult with how many new players coming in this year you are just setting yourself up for disappointment. I think a more realistic goal would be going something like 10-2 and making/winning conference championship
Not sure if anyone was watching with the finals going on but Messi came in as a sub and promptly scored a hat-trick in less than 30 minutes
Amazing goal! He even got emotional when he got subbed off which I thought was pretty cool. Shows how much it meant to him
He's no Jurgen Klopp.......
In all seriousness should be a great hire for them but based off history he'll only be there for 2 or 3 years
Has to be one of the best episodes they've ever done. I'd put it right up there with the red wedding and Hardhome. Really have to admire George Martin because he had all that planned when he named the dire wolf and made the Hodor character in the first book.
I'm going to preface this by saying I go to UK so I am biased but it seems every year they purposely put big rivals against us in the early rounds and this year Cal has finally had enough.
You don't think he's got a point? A&m got a better seed then them even though Kentucky literally beat them earlier today on a neutral court.
Have to wonder if the games today even mattered. Texas A&M a 3 seed while Kentucky just beat them and got a 4. Virginia a 1 over Michigan State who won today too
Basically just because 7 did so well with a December release
In more movie news, Star Wars Edpisode 8 was just pushed back to December 2017
While I love Shazier just as much as the next guy he looked pretty thuggy when he was celebrating and dancing on the sideline after injuring Gio
Liverpool just announced Jurgen Klopp as their new manager. Hopefully he turns them around like he did with Dortmund.
You realize what all of you guys are saying about Calipari is the same type of things other fanbases say about Meyer too?
Just waiting for Game of Thrones to come back myself
Hahaha it was just a joke. I like Star Wars much more and am counting the days down until the new one. Still though, you have to appreciate the original Harry Potter World at Universal because that is probably the main reason this is now happening.
Harry Potter Land is better....
Liverpool fan here hoping for a top four finish. They have a really tough start of the season though so I am not counting on it. I actually liked their moves in the transfer window. Firmino and Clyne should be great players and I am interested to see if Benteke can adapt to Liverpool's style of play. I think Arsenal has the potential to knock Chelsea off this year especially if Arsenal ends up getting Benzema which is a rumor that has started to gain some more traction the last couple of days.
I was at the game and it was probably 95% cheering for him and 5% boos. A lot of people need to grow up with how they think of Cincinnati because they have the audacity to root for a major university that happens to be in the city
I think it is obvious that Calipari would get better recruits at uk because it is such a bigger program than Memphis or Umass. Same with Alabama being a bigger program than Michigan State so it is easier for Saban to get players
But of all the years with Calipari that is the only one that didn't meet or exceed expectations.
2011- Final Four as a 4 seed
2012-National Champions as a 1 seed
2013-were starting to find a groove and then their best player in Noel tears his ACL
2014-Runners-up as an 8 seed
And even in that case they still made the elite 8. With Calipari they don't have any bad upsets like Duke or Kansas constantly do and while those teams don't have as much freshman influence as Kentucky usually does, they do have some.
This is what I mean without trying to be too personal. Other coaches than Calipari have tried to follow his freshman strategy but none have really come close to his success. Also look at all the players he has put in to the NBA with none of his recruits really being busts. He has even got Darius Miller and Josh Harrelson drafted which are probably his best examples.
Please don't hurt me
Its not for like 90% of people here
Hahaha yes I can understand that sentiment but I have been an Ohio State fan my whole life but grew up in Kentucky and I could not afford Ohio State. So now that I go to UK I root for them too. I also root for Ohio state basketball and sadly it means I root for UK football too. I also root for the Bengals and Reds in pro sports so I feel like that has to help my case a little right? Right?
