Aaron Harrison Sr.: “The only word we are thinking about tonight is win.”


ARLINGTON — There were no Kentucky players on the court at AT&T Stadium when Aaron Harrison settled into a front-row seat across from the Kentucky bench.

He came early to watch his sons, Aaron and Andrew, try to lead UK to a national championship win over Connecticut.

What about the rest of the family?

“I came about by myself. I didn’t want anybody to bother me. I want to think about the game,” he said showing why his sons are so intense.

College basketball TV analyst Kenny Smith stopped by to say hello and told him what an “incredible journey” his sons had been on this month and to enjoy the game win or lose.

Once he left, Harrison laughed and said, “Win. That’s what we do. That’s all they have ever done. The only word we are thinking about tonight is win. You don’t come this far to lose this game.”

    ” WIN ! ” # 9

  2. Mike

    Why do we have to start EVERY game off looking and playing $hit!

  3. Barry

    Because we are SPECIAL, right Larry T?

  4. Mike

    How in the world can this coaching staff let Randle come down with cramps at the beginning of the game with his history for same??

    1. Gene

      Is anyone answering you Mikey?
      Your last name wouldn’t be Tipton would it?

  5. Mike

    Gene…..you are more impressive when you stay quiet and on the sidelines. Are you that bored?

  6. Barry

    Larry T., we are SPECIAL aren’t we? I know, they are saving the SPECIAL for the very end, right Larry T.?

    1. Larry Pup

      Spoken like a true fan Barry.

  7. Barry

    Now that was really SPECIAL huh Larry T? We got outcoached, outplayed, and outspecialed…but we didn’t get out RAH RAHHED did we Larry T?

    1. Larry T Clemons

      We got to the FINALS of The National Championship….all you got is a computer, and proof that an idiot can type….Keep typing Baby Barry…

      1. RJ

        No one gives a s___ about second place.

        1. Larry T Clemons

          Are you serious, ” No one cares about Our Run up to the Championship Game.” Were you been, on another Planet…The Whole Sports World have been talking and praising the Kentucky Run… Can’t be upset with these Young Guns…They gave it a Heck Of A Shot ! You’d be lying to yourself to think otherwise…

          1. Larry Pup

            LTC, I can understand the two experts who have been bashing this team all year, Mike and Barry, but you RJ? I had you figured different RJ. Guess I was wrong. Nobody gives a s— about second place RJ? Sell that to Duke, UNC, Syracuse, UL, WS, Kansas, Wisc. and all the other teams who didn’t make it to the championship game. You three guys are marked on VV’s. Mark it down.

  8. RJ

    Team speed kills team height every time. Secondly, will you please recruit someone that can hit a foul shot. We lost by six and missed 13 (or more) foul shots, many on the front end of a 1&1!!!. When the other team is scoring three’s and we are scouring two’s , add up the math.. We lose.

    Our weaknesses were exposed. Team speed, Inability to hit a three point shot and (coaching) no plan to take a three point shot. When the dribble drive isn’t working, is there no plan B?????

    Out coached. Plan and simple.

    1. Larry T Clemons

      Free Throws……and to many throw away turnovers. But, WOW, what a Season and one heck of a Run ! Thank You Wildcats and Coaches…. You went well beyond my hopes of an Elite 8 for this Year…..Great Tourney !

  9. Mike

    Pup and LTC….sorry guys, but the cheerleading can only get you so far. We sucked all night.

    1. RJ

      Yep Mike….. and Coaching didn’t help. Cal didn’t earn his salary tonight.

    2. Larry Pup

      That ‘s OK Mike, we got your number. You two clowns, Barry and Mike, are real happy now. So go ahead and pop off. You two have been sad the whole tournament, so now you can crow a little and show us some more of your true colors. Mike and Barry, two great players in their day I bet? You are pretty sorry Mike to say something like that after the run this team had.

      RJ, I can’t believe you would side with these two clowns. I thought you were a better fan than that. UConn just outplayed the CATS tonight. They (UK) still had a heck of a run. I’m very proud of this team.

  10. Mike

    Hal Cal…still not worried about free throws???????? What a brilliant statement!

  11. RJ

    All of this said, we got the raw deal on most of the officiating tonight. If I am not mistaking, Doug Shows was out there tonight. He took us out of the game with three minutes to go.

  12. RJ

    Any coach who thought that UConn wouldn’t take Randle out of the game is an idiot. And no plan B…. You’ve got to be kidding me.

    1. Larry Pup

      Randle played hurt all night dude. A blind man could have seen it. His ankle, cramps. He still played and fought hard. The difference was Napier and Boatright. UK has not had WCS, thus no plan B IMO. Had he played UK wins. How about giving them some credit hoss. This UK coach was sure no idiot against KS, WS, UL, Mich, Wisc. was he? How fickle people are RJ.

      1. Larry T Clemons

        LP, Love this Team, nothing takes away from these accomplishments…The whole Sports World Is/ Was talking about this Team all Tourney…And the talk was high praise unlike I’ve ever seen…I hope this Team can preview their Run, with Pride and knowledge to understand, they were amazingly effective and unique ! What a great emotional ride, all the way to April 7…We at UK, still had Basketball…LP, early on, I said I’d be happy with the Elite 8. They more than surpassed my hopes and They have lived, most of their Dreams ! This was amazingly Special…

        1. Larry Pup

          You got it pal. Very proud of this team. Nothing these three, Mike, Barry, RJ, can ever say will convince me, ever, that they give a rats a– about UK. To say what they just did on the internet after a hard fought loss like that, and especially after the run UK had is really sorry and gutless. It is also no class.

  13. Mike

    RJ…yes, our buddy Doug Shows spread his UK manure.

  14. Mike

    Pup…want to see sorry…look in the mirror again.

    1. Larry Pup

      You are real tough Mike.

  15. Mike

    We were consistent tonight….we got out-shot, out-rebounded, out-played, out-hustled, and out-coached!!!!!!!!!!!

    1. Larry Pup

      And you have been waiting the whole tournament to say just that creep.

  16. UKFAN197TONE

    I came to read VV and a ESPN message board broke out.

    I just cut myself…yep…STILL BLEEDING BLUE!

    1. Larry T Clemons

      Same few Hoosier/Cardinals…Same ole, bash song… worthless
