The most disappointing performance of this Monday night — Except for Baltimore and Cleveland who are doing their best U of L vs. ‘Cuse imitation midway through the 2d quarter — is that of the boyz at catspause.com.
I mean they’re actually cutting their 2-0 Cats some slack. Perspective. Whodathunkit?
Okay, one guy was calling for D’Andre Liggins at the point. But, other than that, the Big Blue Nation is displaying far more patience than one might expect. The only thread calling for Calipari to be fired was an admitted joke.
The Wildcats are talented but very very very young and immature as a team. UK doesn’t have the look of a team that will win the national title, but they will be in the hunt come March. Even at the end of the season they will be awfully young.
Cousins played big in the 2d half, but looks like a pouter who might affect team chemistry. I’m not sure playing Wall and Bledsoe at the same time is really going to work out. Then again, it doesn’t look like they’ll ever need to be in the game at the same time. Patterson has a long way to go to learn how to play out on the court.
But against a feisty but overmatched Miami five, John Wall did what he’s getting paid the big bucks to do. He hit the game winner on the fly with 0.5 on the clock.
So, all in all, the Cats remain on a collision course with an undefeated season. So all’s right, so far so good, in the Big Blue Nation.
