Butthead Clunks Free Throws - KY Wins!! 68-65


What a game! Meeks hit a three with 4 seconds to go up 68-65 then FL's Butthead (Calathes) (pictured) gets fouled with .6 seconds while shooting a three - clunks the first two and throws up a prayer on the third. Very big win for KY! I hope Patterson is OK after going out midway through the second half with a severe ankle injury. Calathes (pictured) seems a bit upset.

That's Beavis you have there.

But we kept our season alive with that game. Where was Calathes' game face on the free throw line?

i guess it was at the same place UK's man to man d was. He did drop 33 on UK at Rupp. I know its not a win, but there is no reason to call him out.

Sorry Justin - I changed the photo to Butthead. (Hard to tell them apart) You have to admit, Calathes looks a lot like Butthead. That's all I'm saying....

Mike...Calathes was a man last night. He played a great game. But this is a rivalry. It's called trash talk.

oh ok, I wasn't sure what you guys were doing, but now i get it. It's trash talk. I guess that's what I should of done when the football team beat you guys 63-5 a couple of months ago.

and I am glad that after the Gators won 7 of the last 8 we are finally worthy to be a rival to the basket ball royalty that is UK.

I'll never trash talk you on football. I know Florida is a far superior program. You won't hear any football trash talking until we beat you (so you probably won't ever hear anything out of me). You can trash talk all you want in football, and we definitely deserved it this year after the stomping we received from the Gators.

Basketball is another story. I think we have every right to trash talk a team who thinks it's a superior program to UK when Kentucky leads the series 86-31. Before the Gators won 7 in a row, Kentucky won 8 in a row and 10 of 11. Kentucky has 5 more national championships than Florida.

Sure, you can pick out a certain time period and claim dominance. But so can I. You can say I'm focused on the past, to which I'll say that we have a current win streak of 2.

Florida probably is our biggest SEC rival (Tennessee is right up there too). But you're not better, and you never will be. We respect you, but you're not the program Kentucky is.

Nobody said that Florida had a superior basketball program than Kentucky. Last year, you said that we apparently had no right to trash talk because we could NEVER be rivals to such a dynasty. Now we've finally earned the respect to be a "rival." I think you took that comment a step further then intended..

Bottom line: Kentucky and Florida are rivals. As long as Billy D is there, and recruits people like Matt Bonner, Al Horford, Joakim Noah, and Kenny Boynton...we will continue to be a rival and will continue to be a real contention for Kentucky. Billy D and the Gators are slowly earning and working towards their own dynasty, and their hard work should not be overlooked or discredited.

" But you're not better, and you never will be." We were already better than Kentucky for 2 and a half seasons...so I think we've already met that goal. My guess is that we will have future seasons that we will be better then Kentucky as well. Gator fans believe in Billy D win or lose. We're loyal fans. We'll give him plenty of time to do something great with the basketball program...we won't fire him for a couple rough seasons...

I love this annual tradition of the Internet nerd-fights.

aprilbrunjes said...

Ya I love it too..almost as much as I love Joakim Noah's beautiful afro and striking good looks..

J Dub said...

Tubby was not fired. Just to clarify.

Hey Mr & Mrs Brunjes,
You all didn't need to do any trash talking when you destroyed us in football. Your team took care of it on the field. You gotta be thick-skinned to be a true fan - like a Gator. :)
