    --Guys had class today

    --Gonna practice a couple days first

    --Talking about late games

    --If gonna make us play late dont make us do media

    --The guys are playing better

    --Had a 'funky' lineup there for a bit

    --Gonna need Izak and Wenyen to play better

    --Wenyen the x factor...need him to play better

    --We didn't block out and their guy got 11-12 rebounds...our guys just watched the ball and didnt go after it

    --Lamenting the strength of teams in our bracket

    --Ark had that game won!

    --USC and Ark would've been great to see...guaranteeing an SEC team in FF

    --Our league got us ready to play

    --Now you see how good our league is

    --How about that charge call? But he walked first!

    --And you wonder why coaches go crazy

    --Woke up last nite and turned on TV and replaying SC? DUKE...and SC won again :)

    --It's hard to score 50 points and win

    --If we can score 80 a game it is the perfect number

    --Nobody has house money anymore

    --Everybody playing with their own money now

    --Noose gets tighter now but don't want them playing like that

    --Entire season is built for one thing: Prepping for THIS

    --Poking fun of the gripers when we lose a few in the middle of the year

    --We TRY to win 'em all but very difficult

    --This is a process

    --Trying to land the plane at the right time

    --You fans do this EVERY year

    --Hoping the bandwagon is moving so fast you can't grab on LOL!!

    Holy shit! Cal: "you've got people complaining all year, what's wrong with this team, listen, this happens every year and we come together at the end. Grab these people by the shoulders and tell them it happens every year. Then they try to jump on the bandwagon at the end and say they were cheering all year long. No you didn't" (paraphrased) Hahahahaha

    Caller: Congrats on Sweet 16.....Can Hawk start and be put on Ball?

    Cal: Don't wanna screw with the lineup

    --He's been helping us on offense too

    --They're not machines...arent perfect

    --But you know what his effort will be

    --Really comfy putting Mulder in right now...

    --With Derek and Mulder it spreads the court for us

    --Griping about last year vs OSU didnt have shooters

    --Derek has played better since getting engaged

    Caller: Do you think its better to play somebody you've already played in tourn?

    --All kind of ways of looking at it

    --I kinda like it being someone we lost to

    --But it works both ways...if we beat them before its hard to beat a team twice

    --Dom, Derek are so much better because they've played against such great competition over the years

    --Made you wanna cry that Dom made all-conference

    --People finding out how hard it is to do what we're doing (OAD)

    --These kids represent the state and Univ great

    --Did our guys say anything when WSU was yapping?

    --Our guys responded vs. Ark great when it was a fistfight

    --These guys are happy for Dom

    --30 for 30 had the old NC State run on and I wanted to show my guys this

    --Holding everybody else to a standard

    --They hold ea other accountable

    --Darius Miller and Josh H were so great

    --Going thru each guy in the NBA and great they're doing that

    --People say there is no connection to the school...BULL

    --Our kids who are gone always come back and LOVE this place

    --Deandre Liggins...where he came from..now with the Cavs...incredible story

    Caller: Cal's 8th year and we've won 30+ games in 6 of those years....not many 30 win seasons historically...Monk playing and not trying to force anything

    --Cal: You are right about Monk

    --Monk stretches the court

    --On the road in SEC preps us for this

    --This bracket we are in is nuts...nuts

    That's it! Go Cats! Let's destroy UCLA....my heart can't take another squeaker!

    Not sure if it's the right time to see if we can get Gabriel going. But I hope he can contribute more than he is.

    WG needs to play solid defense and rebound. Get some putbacks, maybe go to the line.

    His offensive game is shot right now.

    Do the little things to get back into the flow.

    Matt Jones said the 6 season thing too and it is wrong. This is cals 4th 30 win uk team. Yes two had 29 but 30+ has to mean 30+ here.

    I also noticed our guys were ho-hum about the victory. Not much emotion kinda like they weren't excited. What's the reason for that?

    I think Cal just kind of said at UK we expect to win round of 32 games...and we get here so often that it's not really a big deal to our guys until we get to the FF and beyond

    I understand that but we made a huge defensive play to win the game. I guess I just expected more of a celebration. Instead we kinda walked slowly toward the bench.

    They left it all on the court, they were tired, and they were disappointed that is was that close. Those are some likely reasons they were so subdued....and the class thing. Like you said, they act like it's business as usual.

    Something tells me Cal doesn't care about the extra win as much as you seem to.
