    What's shorter, a handshake from Tommy Crean or an "encounter" with Pitino at Porcini's?

    This one is funny... He's in blow by mode but Matta grabs him and holds on for dear life.

    Crean with the blow by which has become the norm for him when his team takes a loss.
    I'm curious about this garnering so much attention. What's the average speed for a coach to shake hands with the opposing coach? After so much was made of it, it looked like Crean and Ryan were going to make out after Wisconsin beat IU in the B1G Tourney.

    The only person who cares is WMR, who needs to worry about his team and stop being obsessed with ours.

    I would have to time the handshake-pleasantries after a win vs. the handshake-no pleasantries after the loss to determine. If the handshake time is the same for wins and losses, than maybe he's just a germophobe. If the handshake time is short and curt after losses only, then its a sign of being a sore loser. I think the list is long enough of Crean's annoying personality and character traits that the handshake issue can probably be in the second ten, though.

    We've got some hilarious jokes the past couple pages. I don't think anyone has mentioned the most hilarious one yet, the fact that the biggest reason Kentucky fans have had to celebrate all season is Indiana's elimination from the tournament.

    Ha!
    They don't think it be like it is, but it do.

    On that, you and I agree.

    WMR is the only one who cares and is the only one talking about this?

    Really?

    That's what you're going with?

    2012 vs. 1987 is the funniest though, by far.

    If you're talking about the spread between years UK and UofL last beat Florida in football, I think you're off by one year on each side.

    They're ALL sore losers. Some just hide it better. I've said it before: As a Colts fan I've never jumped on the Pats for quick handshakes or being sore losers, so I really don't care if Tom Crean gives a quick post game handshake. It's a pretty stupid thing to make into a big deal but I've come to expect that from some. Just like my life wouldn't really be any better if IU had won the tournament last year as apposed to not winning since 1987, but for some it's a big part of their lives. That's another way to go.
