Portland v. Kentucky

Post by blacksheep on Mon Nov 15, 2010 10:35 am

I don't put a lot of stock in the RPI predictors, especially this early in the season, but RealTime's prediction of the game this Friday is interesting. Kentucky 73 Portland 70. http://realtimerpi.com/ncaab/411_Men.html

I would absolutely love to see the Pilots in play a close game with Kentucky. Maybe we can even win it on a Stohl 3 pointer as the buzzer goes off. cheers

I noticed that too. They also have Kentucky going undefeated...

I wouldn't get too excited. They also have us losing to Portland State by 5, though I would trade that for splitting with the Zags.

I would too, but can we trade another game. I sure would like to see us beat PSU one of these years.

42.2 percent chance to beat Kentucky. I like those chances!

I'm really excited for the game on Friday and I hope both students and other fans come out in force to make the place LOUD.

I don't expect Blazer-esque crowds but it would be nice to be louder than the Terrence Jones contingent.

Mostly I hope we are able to play competitive basketball and stick with Kentucky! I think we could beat em.

Yeah, it's way, way to early to put any stock in RPI.

I think we can have a glass half full approach though. If we lose, it will still positively affect our RPI/strength of schedule. If we win, it's the biggest upset our program has had that I can remember. I'm much more optimistic than I was before the last 3 games. Some might disagree, but, I think this years' team has the potential to be deeper than last years' team...especially at point guard. When TJ went to the bench last year, there often seemed to be a drop off at least offensively. Now Waterford and Douglas are almost interchangeable, and when one goes in for the other it's just a flawless transition...

I think we should cancel all talk about RPI. Another Pilot team recently learned that a good RPI is worthless if you don't win the games. Shocked

Love the comments at the end of that article! I think some old coodger UK fan just compared Stohl to Pistol Pete (although in a backhanded kind of a way)

Pistol Pete joined an LSU team that was 3-20, Jared doesn't have to be that good.

The best thing that could happen to UP is if Kentucky decided to double him.

I think it's premature to compare Stohl to Pistol Pete, but, at his best, he does sometimes remind me of Steve Kerr a bit...

I agree that doubling Stohl would be a big mistake. Their long armed defenders have the ability to guard our guys one on one, and I think if they play us straight up it will be tough. But, if they double Stohl and dare guys like Tanner and Mitrovic to beat them, that will be a mistake.

In my opinion, Friday's result is not as important as Saturdays against Idaho. Idaho pretty much put the nail in the coffin to our slim at large bid hopes last year after we lost to Portland State and Idaho following the great 76 classic run of 2009. Hopefully we can play a competitive game Friday and blow out Idaho no matter the result of Friday's game.
I for one will be staying up late way out here in the eastern time zone drinking my PBR, and bringing out the jersey for the first time this season. Can't wait.

For those of you who might have missed it (Mesa Very Happy ), Kramer was on the John Lund show this afternoon.

Yeah, that's a good point. In addition, we still don't know what kind of a road team we have yet. Calipari is probably circling this game as a dangerous one on the schedule...since at least one guy on the team is probably thinking ahead to the Maui Invitational with many big name teams. We've got a several key games that we could put on the resume this year: Kentucky, Washington, Gonzaga, and possibly Utah (who knows maybe Saint Mary's and LMU will also be on the list). Beating any of those teams looks would look good for us if we can win 18 or more games this season...

Terrence Jones article from the Oregonian this morning.

Rev thinks we have a neat team. Cool
(I tend to agree).

I've got some nice Wisconsin seasonals to enjoy during the game because every time I purchase Oregon brews for a Pilot they seem to put up a stinker.

Interesting Quote:
Though Jones never considered signing with Portland, he’s seen the Pilots plenty of times. Usually he’d go to watch some big-name school come in to play only to walk out of the arena shaking his head after Portland pulled off the upset.
We "usually" pull of upsets?

“Right now we are the youngest team out there,” Calipari said. “Whether it’s Portland, or any of the three teams we will play in Maui, we are going to be the youngest. There are going to be things that will happen and I am just going to have to tell them to go make a play. That’s where we are.”

-----------------------------------------

Yes, but, you do have a few more 4 to 5 star recruits than us, and the one-and-done players who come to Kentucky to put on a show to go straight to the NBA. How many of those players are there on Portland's team (probably zero) or in Maui? Well, I'm proud of our student athletes who stay...

Not to mention the fact that we do the horrible burden on our players like actually make them go to class. Talk about cruel.

I'm mildly curious to see if Marcus Camby shows up tonight to see his old college coach.
