Crum rips Coach K

53 posts in this topic

Denny Crum and former UK coach Joe B. Hall have a radio show in Louisville. They mostly talk about fishing, hunting and sometimes basketball. Anyway, Crum said this morning that Coach K is a whiner and the reason Butler lost was because of the referees.

Thought that was pretty wild to hear it from a Hall of Fame coach. And before you rip the messenger, I hated Crum when he was at U of L.

Is kentucky known for it's red whine or white wine? Sounds like sour grapes to me.

I thought the refs sucked too, but in a general sort of way. Overall for the whole tourney, I thought the refs were WAY inconsistent, much more so than I've see before in NCAA ball.

Last night I saw bad calls (and "no calls") against both teams. I wanted Butler to win, but I don't think the refs had too much effect on the outcome.

So the answer is red whine.

The refs were pretty bad, but we lost that game because we couldn't make the shots when they mattered the most.

The pull up three by Mack, the fade-away by Hayward and of course the half court prayer by Hayward.

The refs did play a part in it, but when your best player (Hayward) shoots 2-11, you aren't going to win, and the fact that we should have won, proves that this is one of the best teams to not win the title.

We will be back next year, better believe that.

The refs were great in the first half and really inconsistent in the second half. They both shot an even amount of free throws for the game though so IDK if you can say the refs gave it to Duke. I think it was more a result of Singler, Scheyer, and Smith hitting shots when they counted and Zoubek taking care of business on defense.

If Howard could have sunk a bucket rather than foul for the first 30 minutes, it wouldn't have been close.

What is it about Duke and refs? Why does everyone always think the refs are in Duke's pocket? Now, I'm not going to be a homer and say that Duke doesn't get calls--especially in Cameron Indoor--but come on. On this stage? At this juncture? No. If anything, you think the calls would've leaned to BUTLER, because everyone wanted them to win.

I think it was fairly officiated--not necessarily WELL officiated, but fair--and that once again people show their jealousy of Duke's success.

I saw a lot of aggressive plays by Butler that the refs let go. Hell, if they had hit that last shot the guy got open on a blatant moving pick used to take Singler off of Heyward.

My only point in making this thread is that it is very rare to hear a Hall of Famer say something like that about another. I didn't even realize Crum had any problems with Coach K. For the record, I love Coach K.

    • I do think Kpassagnon is an interesting prospect that needs to be in the right situation to thrive. It just so happens that we have one of the best 6'7" defensive ends in the history of the NFL on a reunion tour with us in 2017 and maybe if need be, 2018 if he holds up.   Kpassagnon's attitude and work ethic is strong and tireless. His 3-cone and vert scare me for a defensive end, and that's not something you can teach. Being able to bend and explode off the snap to beat OL is not something that Peppers can show him, but maybe Peppers can show how to use athleticism to his advantage.  I can see him being just another Michael Johnson/Erik Armstead player or I could also see the environment here in Carolina benefiting him and he becomes a Carlos Dunlap kind of lanky DE that causes headaches along our DL. Kpassagnon's spider web looks amazing and awful all at the same time. I'd take him in this draft, but "where" is the big question.
