because the reality is Ky is no better than Tn.It was a game of 2 bad basketball teams.But Tn beats Ky at home as long as Cal dont bring his own refs.

Never have I seen so many bad ball handlers on one team.
TOs and FTs strike again.
Richardson embarrassed himself.
FTs are about personal dedication.
And where has our perimeter defense gone?
Not bichen just whinin.
This is the worst ball handling team I've seen at UT in some time. Just atrocious. It didn't kill us like it did at Bama, but we had 11 assists and 13 turnovers. Ky had 13 assists and 15 turnovers.

The talent disparity between the two teams is huge. Yes, UK should have put this game away early. Ya'll been screaming that same stale excuse for 50 years. God bless the refs when you when, feck em when you lose.

There's a reason the staff is out evaluating 2013 PGs, and it's not for their health.

Yemi played his butt off and got some bad calls on him.
Mcrae is all this team has on off.
Stokes cant catch a break and gets frustrated and gets into foul trouble which is 50/50 with him.
Reese is playing better and was aggressive
Richardson just smh
Mcmiss once again has no reason to be in a uniform.
Trae is pathetic period.Missing layups ,turnovers and cant play def.
Moore should of gotten more playing time.
Hall played better but he still acts like he is high.

Golden is starting to have a striking resemblance to Ramar Smith when on the floor.

It's "win". It's hard to take you seriously WHEN you can't spell. Nice UK education, right? I highly doubt it. Let me guess... You also root for the Lakers and Jimmy Johnson.

The 0-3 conference start is frustrating. With the SEC being so awful, we are quickly approaching a point where we'll have to win out to have a shot at the tournament. I know most people who are in touch with reality have known for a while that this probably wasn't a tournament team, but I don't know if we thought the team would be all but eliminated by the middle of January.

I'd be surprised if Edwards is gone coming in as a Senior next year.

Unforced turnovers and foul trouble kept us out of the game. I can't tell you how much I heard "same ole Tennessee" tonight.

Good report as usual ZJC.

We lost our heads at times and it was obvious we missed the extra body in the paint that Maymon provides when Yemi fouled out. Zero FTs for Tennessee 26 minutes in...smh. Armani Moore should have played more.

The Good...
-Jordan McRae is playing his best ball of his career. He is what we all hoped he'd become.
-Yemi does so many little things well. If the game ever fully comes around for him on both ends, he will be well worth his scholarship.
-Reese was solid again. He doesn't make plays very quickly yet, but as the game slows down for him, and his quickness and speed increase, he is going to earn his scholly too. Much more impressive than I thought he would be to this point.

The Bad...
-Jarnell can't play with these long lanky kids. He is just not athletic enough and looks every bit the four-year player. Good and bad for us.
-Trae, despite his better offensive statistics, was as careless as could be with the ball and looks to have reverted to junior high ball-handling skills.
-Richardson seemed to disappear for long stretches, but perhaps because of McRae taking a high number of shots. His two FTs at the end were really bad and cost us any shot at closing the gap. He busts his tail every trip down though, so all is forgiven.
-Kenny was good Kenny at times, and bad Kenny more often. Its to be expected.

UK is going to struggle against teams that match them body for body in the post. The next ahot Noel hits outside of 6" will be the first. Goodwin was held in check offensively and was frustrated by McRae defensively. Poythress looked average. Ironically, we had no answer to one of the least athletic players UK plays, Kyle Wiltjer.
