I don't care that you lost one player. You still had 10x the talent of your opponent.
How have you never taken in a game at TBA???
You should make it a point to go next season when UK comes to Kville. The UT bball crowd gets up for UK like none other.
This UK team sans Noel is nowhere close to 10x as talented as UT. We're seeing just how overrated Goodwin and Poythress were heading into the season. These are not superstar freshmen like John Wall, MKG, or Anthony Davis. These guys have played like freshmen, and freshmen very often play BAD.
Poythress, for instance, steps out of bounds AT LEAST ONCE every game. Who does that? I've never seen anything like it in my life.
UT had a home court frothing at the mouth and they came out very confident while UK came out like a bunch of scared wusses and that beatdown is the result.
And it's not like UT NEVER beats UK at bball, pretty big difference between 1-7 versus a 26 year losing streak. And regular season games are obviously much more important in football than in bball. But trust me, for UK it is ultimately a compliment. Hell the Hoosiers commemorated their regular season victory over UK on the damn Bloomington phonebook!!
Strangely there was no mention of the NCAA Tournament rematch.
UK is everyone's Super Bowl and always will be. That's what these kids playing for UK don't get. They want to mope and feel sorry for themselves. They still, even now, don't really understand how badly every team they play wants to beat Defending National Champion Kentucky.
I'm really hopeful for next year's class. Part of me thinks Poythress could be really, really good as a sophomore, I just don't want to lose Randle and/or Wiggins if they want to come here but worry about seeing enough clock depending on who doesn't go pro. Dakari Johnson and WCS would be an amazing center combo.
