As far as Goodman, a part of me agrees but the bigger part thinks, UK would be run the thru mill by the media as having a "too good-sore loser" type attitude so I would say take the bid and play "the one game"
and end the season.
Except Kentucky would likely be having home field until they play in New York for the championship rounds. They've done well in Lexington this year, so it would basically be prolonging an already miserable season.
I really don't view it as "sore loser" as much as just blow it up and start over next season. It would be one thing if this team played hard every game yet the talent level wasn't there. You can tell though by watching this team that they give up when they receive the least little bit of adversity away from Rupp Arena.

Maintaining as much separation from KU as possible heading into next season is this team's primary goal at this point.
I really don't care about that to be honest. If we get the recruiting class we're projected to get we will likely be putting enough separation between Kansas anyways.
Even if Cal wanted to end the season now, I'd say UK will accept the bid just for moneys sake. Rupp is going to be home for the second/third rounds of the tournament and fans who normally wouldn't get a chance to see UK due to season ticket holders will be piling in to see the Cats at Memorial Coliseum.
