Best performance i have seen this year by any team. USC is better then UK tonight by a mile. USC has the best player Downey and overall the better players who can actually shoot LOL. I hope UK learns from this and know that you must give 150% ever night like USC did tonight.

I think Horn is the real deal, I knew Odom was washed up, but holy ****, I didn't know Odom had these kind of players. USC is definitely a ncaa tournament team and looks like a sweet 16 team to me...

I really did not think Horn was a good coach pre-season (and I'm a WKU grad), but I have been proven wrong this year. I only watched the final 10 minutes of the game, but we were flat out owned by a great team.

Congrats on making us look like that one team with learning disabilities that lost 0-100.

Good game, UK! I think this was the first game this season that we've come out from the start with the kind of confidence and killer instinct that a team needs in order to contend for it's conference. I don't know about a sweet-16 team - I'd just like to see us get to the NCAAT, and win at least ONE game there - but I know I'll be enjoying this team under Horn for as long as we can keep him. I hope for at least 10 years.....

i echo sky and xps' statements. your guys played like they wanted to win and it showed. there should be no more bubble talk when it comes to the gamecocks. i really hope that billy g. shows our guys this game tape on how to play hard for 40 minutes. congrats usc fans.

I think the win was all about luck. I think the Cocks are lucky to have a PG. Lucky to have a group of guys that give it 100%. Lucky to have pulled itself together from last year.

Oh, yeah....Lucky Meeks didn't go off for 80 against you guys! (I can't be a totally rational UK fan.:D)

Lets just hope we don't draw Richmond or Coppin State in the first round. lol

We were thoroughly dominated in every aspect of the game. Despite the score, I think it was even more of a thorough beatdown than Vandy shalacked us with last year. Every single shot was contested and everything around the basket was either spiked into the fifth row or we were fouled hard. I remember Miller going up for a layup and getting knocked about ten feet by two different players. It's that kind of tenacity that wins ballgames. The defensive effort of the C0cks was enough to beat us by itsself, but when you add on the lights out three point shooting we were fortunate to not lose by 30. Congrats on an impressive win. I'm still crossing my fingers that we can beat LSU or Florida and go dancin' with ya.

Thanks for the awesome post weeg, you are the man. Quick question though, I just watched the BCG post game presser and just wanted to know if BCG was drunk? He seemed a lil giddy to me.

Based on his substitution patterns and in-game adjustments I would have to say yes.

He also came across as rude to Tom Leach when asked why he sat out Jodie Meeks so long. He's only done that three times now...

Yeah, congrats to USC. All offseason I said USC could end up second in the East, and it looks like now at worse they'll have a share of 1st place.

Although, some USC fans have been very annoying this year, I am happy for the Kentucky guy Darrin Horn. I knew from his Western Kentucky days when he had great guards like (Anthony Winchester, Courtney Lee, Tyrone Brazleton, and Lee Rogers) that this USC team was gonna fit him well, because it's small, mobile, and scrappy. Kudos to USC and I hope USC does well this year....

... and above all else, I hope USC continues to be lucky. LOL

I'm sure you'd say the same thing about me... it's an opinion. But, if that's the only thing you got out of my post, you're looking for and hoping to find trouble my friend.

#1GCF, thanks for the rep on the post. I think we all get angry in the heat of the season and sometimes things are stated that piss each other off (some USC fans have ticked me off a lot this season), and I felt like I was very welcoming to them this year and gracious during this good season of success. Anyway, I really do hope you guys do well... I've always admired the USC program, because Odom was nothing but class and Horn is "one of us."

#1GCF, you and SC804, are two of the best USC fans around.

I would neg rep you if you annoyed me, but you don't. For the most part I find your posts informative, but that little remark was a tad bit uncalled for. Your other UK brethren were able to come on here and congratulate SC fans without a dig, I was just wondering why weren't you. But hell, lets not turn this thread sour. Thanks for the props KT.:thumb:

JRS, personally, it's bush league for you to come calling somebody out after a loss, asking why haven't they shown up? I've got a job that doesn't allow that. Otherwise, I wouldn't been on here, first thing to say what I've already said. If I ran and hid after losses, I wouldn't have lasted here for 4 years, because we've lost more than I like.

More than anything, I hope you guys enjoy this win, since it puts you in the drivers seat for the SECE championship.

Hey KT, go back and read the posts. I did not call you out.
This is what I posted:


What a game. I am really proud of these guys. Thanks for the kind words UK fans, y'all truly are classy. As for Kentubby, I believe he is a teacher, so that might explain why is not posting right now. Gamecock fans, lets be as classy as these UK fans and not rub it in KT's face.


Now if you took that as "calling you out," then I apologize. I was just trying to explain to the other SC posters that you are a teacher and that you didn't have time to post immediately. Also, that I didn't want them to be rude and rub it in your face because nobody likes that at all.

Why pinpoint me though as a potential recipient of USC fan's jeers... because I have the balls the speak my mind?

At this point, it's just wise for me to let this one go. I can remember plenty of times beating USC and not rubbing it in you guy's faces. It's baffling to me.

Darrin Horn deserves SEC Coach of the Year.

Trent Johnson is the clear and deserving favorite for the award. He's gonna lose only one, maybe two SEC games this year. THat's just too hard to beat.

He has like 5 players from their Final 4 team a couple years ago! Darrin Horn came in here with a team that has had no success since our little 2 NIT wins and our 2004 or 05 NCAA Tournament team that lost in the first round.
