    A lot of times you have a hard time judging teams simply because once conference play begins, teams rarely play big games outside of conference.
    ...and this one belongs to the Reds.

    Unbelievable! If you had told me this three weeks ago I would have had you committed to an insane asylum. The last thee games have been unreal. I'll never pass judgment on a Cal team again until the season is done. Just like in 2011 this team turned it on at the right time. I don't know how they will do next weekend but at this point it doesn't matter. It's been unreal run that can only get better.

    Re: UK Basketball DY9ASTY Edition

    What will the impact be to CBB if Cal's one and done formula wins the NC two out of three years? This one has been crazy with three games in a row where five freshman made play after play and shot after shot in the clutch in down to the wire games. It doesn't feel as rigged and unfair as the 2012 team - UK has provided three of the best TV games in recent NCAA memory over the last 8 days. The 2012 UK team was just so much more talented than everyone else in a down year in CBB with Davis and Kidd-Gilchrist being the two best players in the country.

    Will there be a movement to eliminate the one and dones? Or is it locked in stone with Coach K, Self and Roy Williams now embracing the movement?

    Just out of curiosity, is the lowest seed team that UK has had to reach the FF?

    Re: UK Basketball DY9ASTY Edition

    These last three games were a lot like the last three in 1998 against Duke,Stanford and Utah. Extremely close down to the wire games that were generally well played. I still can't believe the turnaround they had. Whatever Cal did to "Tweak" this team he needs to bottle it and keep for the future. Can we call this team "The Tweakables"?

    The last three Kentucky games have been the best three games in the tournament. Unbelievable how many big shots they've made.

    UK passed Dook on the all-time Final Four list (16).

    I'd like either The Comeback Cats Strike Back or The Unbreakables.

    I also read that UK is only team in history to beat two undefated teams in the NCAA tournament. IU in 1975 and Wichita this season.

    They also have beat three teams from last seasons Final Four in this tournament. That had never been done before either.

    I thought since "The Tweak" had so much air play that would be the dominant theme. We will see what this team is eventually called.

    Coach O hired by South Florida.

    I'd say that just created an opening for Tony Barbee.

    Excellent hire. "O" as a head coach was long overdue, IMO.
