Lost to Robert Morris. Even with low motivation, I expected more. I guess Calipari really is just a recruiter and not a coach.
Bet his crop of one-and-dones are a bit burned by ending their season with a first round NIT loss.
I guess no rematch to end the season. Oh well, we can still have the last laugh by winning this thing.
Even more delicious, they are already done before Louisville tips off in Kentucky's arena as a #1 seed.

last laugh at who exactly?
And they might be ranked #1 in 2 months

Maryland Manhattan? These things can happen to anyone.
Did you just use "Delicious"? Shoot yourself.
the Kentucky players get back to school in time to watch the L-ville game
As much as I enjoy Calipari fails, it'll be short-lived...they'll be nasty next year
Eh. This was a tough game. Going on the road, in a tiny gym. Game is a big deal to RMU, and their crowd. I saw this coming.
Terps are easily the most (of the least most) watchable teams left.
Big setback for the KY program. If we win the NIT, we defernitely move above them in the pecker order.
Question - who starts in the back court for KY next year? I'm guessing Harrow transfers (again) and Andrew starts at the point but what about the 2? Aaron or Goodwin? Can't see either willing to come off the bench. 3 guard offense maybe? It will be interesting to see a little in fighting between current players (not 1 and done) and next years recruiting class.

I wouldn't bank on Goodwin coming back... Every mock draft I've seen still has him in the first round, some even in the lottery.
eamhokie94: Is your name Nazi in pig Latin?
Great thread imo
NIT CHAMPS.....SUCK IT CALIPARI!
Guess Gary can't coach because we lost to Manhattan?
Not a swipe at GW but honestly it's pretty much impossible to actually "coach" when the players simply do not give a shit whether they win or lose.
I'd say that game says absolutely nothing about Kentucky or Calipari other than that they weren't that good after losing Noel. Not sure we wouldn't have lost if we had been sent to Moon Township.
You know someone is dumb when they say Calipari can't coach.
Agreed, but he did a TERRIBLE job this year motivating this team all year.
MoodiesNC80 has alerted me via PM that he does not agree with my assessment of the current MD team. He makes some valid points.
I don't know if you were referring to my post above or not. But you also essentially made the same point. Teams can be flat, have off nights, whatever...lose to a team that they should beat. Not necessariyl the fault of the coach. I wasn't digging at Gary in the slightest. Calipari knows how to coach. And so did/does Gary.
I'd much rather beat Viagra and the random turd city team coming here Thursday than lose to Randolph Childress and get the twins and Randall!!!!! RAWRRRR!!!
So Julious Randle just committed to UK. I hope their chemistry is shitty and that they implode.
Wow. This is NOT roomy!
SUCK IT CAL!
Kentucky losing to Robert Morris isn't as bad as some people make it out to be because it was the NIT. A lot of times, the high-major who just missed out on the NCAA tournament will not be motivated to play. The mid-major team is highly motivated because they won their regular season conference, were upset in their postseason tourney(like Robert Morris) and the players will want to prove themselves against the big-name school. A lot of the mid-majors/low-majors who make the NIT won their regular season league crown, they aren't exactly push-overs.
Kentucky was still somewhat struggling before Nerlens Noel got hurt, going forward there will now be some doubt as to whether Calipari can just keep bringing in one-and-dones and be a national contender every year. If Willie Cauley-Stein, Alex Poythress and Archie Goodwin all turn pro, next year's team will be in the same position as this year's team. A bunch of talented freshman with average or below average upperclassmen.
Valid points... except that Kentucky should never lose to Robert Morris and if they do they should have the name Kentucky ripped off their jerseys.
