Couldnt resist. Go Wildcats! :D
Couldnt resist. Go Wildcats! :D
I mentioned it in another thread, there is no reason why Kentucky shouldn't blow UC away. This UC team is down by UC's standard and lacks mental and physical toughness. When they play teams like Illinois and Louisville they back down to easily. Same thing happened with South Florida. If Kentucky lets UC hang around there will probably be a mutiny in Lexington. I'm a huge UC fan but Kentucky is probably going to win by at least 15 points and will have at least a double-digit lead at the half. UC just doesn't have any offense and the defense has soften as the season has gone on (giving up 80 points to South Florida).
This thread won:D.
Rocket, I wasn't around to say this before or during the game, but you gave UC less credit than everyone in the media, who were all picking them to beat UK. Were you just trying to jinx UK? ;) It put you in a no-lose situation, you know.
:D :D Woo Hoo! Wildcats! Nice win! :thumbup:
It's a good night for us Briars :thumbup: :thumbup:
All I have to say is WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!! GO WILDCATS! UK has bragging rights for another 15 years!
I don't know if you can call it bragging rights with how bad UC is this year. Kentucky should have won by 20 points. It's not that I didn't give UC credit, UC is just not good this year and last night showed that. Kentucky pretty much dominated that game other then a short run by UC. Kentucky is just loaded with talent, this UC team has two MAYBE 3 good players, and even that is suspect. Now, UC is going to have a ridiculously loaded team next year and will rival Kentucky in talent so I won't be so down on UC if they matched up with UK then. But there wasn't a chance in hell that this year's UC team should have been on the same court as Kentucky and it showed. Kentucky has a great frontline, a great bench, a solid PG, a fantastic backcourt and a good offense and fantastic defense. UC has a small, thin frontline, no bench, a horrible backcourt, a horrible offense, and a nice defense. I'm seriously shocked that Kentucky let UC back in the game for a few minutes.Quote:

The two schools need to make this game happen....
Any chance that Huggins goes to UT?
To me that seems to be a step down, at UC basketball is pretty much king, at UT, he's 3rd banana to football and the ladies team..also IMO the SEC is a tougher conference then the new big eastQuote:

Now next year they should have a pretty strong team. One thing this game proves is that this has the potential to be a GREAT rivalry. I talked to a couple of my friends from Cincinnati and they said the city was absolutely electric with anticipation for this game. It should happen, but I'm sure it won't.
Im a UK fan, but I would rank the Big East ahead of the SEC for the depth of teams. The last two national champions(Syracuse and UConn) came from the Big East. Add in current teams in Notre Dame, Villanova, and WVU, plus Cincinnati and Louisville coming into the league, and they are a match.Quote:

Ahh..I forgot the teams in the Big E that aren't in the football part..whoops :help:Quote:

Outside of Kentucky, the SEC is pretty weak most years, IMO.
