Vitale made a statement the other night like " UK fans have to realize this team is good but not great !" (before NN injury)
Here is the thing. Most UK fans knew this UK team wasnt going to be a dominant team as the season progressed. Some have mentioned maybe Sweet 16 while others say NIT.
It just seems when UK fans say things like " we just arent very good this year" or "this team probably wont win over one game in the tourney", we labeled as sore losers or told we're griping because we want to win every year.
No and I repeat No....we are just saying things every basketball fan says. We could go the UC or OSU thread and see the same type comments.
A boss at my company is a huge U of L fan. He came in the other day talking up Pitino's best team ever and a couple of weeks later, he said "We stink !". He phrased it a little different though.
So just because we are on this thread talking of how selfish Archie plays or where Poythress has been hiding all year, doesnt mean we think our team will be Great every year or win it all. Again...we are fans who talk about our team like every fan does only UK fans talk more most of the time.
