I wish, but I doubt it. :(
Now you all know that the best kind of cat is a WILDcat! Go Blue! :gac:
Go Big Blue
I'm not so sure. This UK team can be caught flat-footed. They aren't so naturally gifted that they can survive too many hard charges from a good defensive squad.Quote:

The key to UC winning is to have Meeker play the whole game.
I'm a briar myself, so I'm a DIEHARD UK fan (are there any other kinds?), but I must admit that although Cincinnati is inconsistent and whatever else some may say about them, they are still the kind of physical, good rebounding team that UK has had fits with; especially recently. I want Kentucky to win and I think if they put it together like they have very few times this season, they could make a serious run to the Final Four. However, more often than not, they're too inconsistent offensively, and they could lose ANY game... starting with Saturday's.
At least they survived today... NCAA Tourney starting, Kentucky wins, and St. Paddy's day for a briar with mostly Irish ethnicity... it's a good day.
Every year Cincinnati is a choker team. Considering 6 of the last 8 years they've gone out in the second round (and one of those other years the first) I'd be feeling pretty comfortable if I was a Kentucky fan.

Maybe you didn't read Serafini's post too closely, paintme. It said 6 of the last 8 years UC has gone out in the 2nd round. You, on the other hand, were only able to give ONE year that UK has gone out in the 2nd round. Not a very logical comeback. ;)
If UC wins by 10, I'll buy you all the Falls City you can drink for a lifetime, okay? Or do they still even sell that nasty stuff? :eek:
I listened to Bill Cunningham Monday on WLW and they were letting the callers fill out the brackets(winner got a cocktail dinner). Needless to say, the caller picked Cincinnati to beat UK. I was wanting to listen to the rest of it to see if they would pick UC to win the national championship, but I got out of range.:(

If UC can shoot like they did today they'll give UK some trouble - if not, UK will beat them soundly.
UC has to play with the enthusiasm they did today - and Maxiell looked possessed.

I'm not saying UC doesn't choke in the NCAA tourney (and I'm a student there), but to say Kentucky will win even though they've choked before too is a reach IMO.
Both teams will be ready to play. I think Kentucky wins but it's gonna be close.
It should be fun. Kind of a shame there's only one day between games.
Can they both lose?
