Couldnt resist. Go Wildcats!
I mentioned it in another thread, there is no reason why Kentucky shouldn't blow UC away. This UC team is down by UC's standard and lacks mental and physical toughness. When they play teams like Illinois and Louisville they back down to easily. Same thing happened with South Florida. If Kentucky lets UC hang around there will probably be a mutiny in Lexington. I'm a huge UC fan but Kentucky is probably going to win by at least 15 points and will have at least a double-digit lead at the half. UC just doesn't have any offense and the defense has soften as the season has gone on (giving up 80 points to South Florida).

Rocket, I wasn't around to say this before or during the game, but you gave UC less credit than everyone in the media, who were all picking them to beat UK. Were you just trying to jinx UK? It put you in a no-lose situation, you know.
Help stamp out, eliminate, and do away with redundancy.
I don't know if you can call it bragging rights with how bad UC is this year. Kentucky should have won by 20 points. It's not that I didn't give UC credit, UC is just not good this year and last night showed that. Kentucky pretty much dominated that game other then a short run by UC. Kentucky is just loaded with talent, this UC team has two MAYBE 3 good players, and even that is suspect. Now, UC is going to have a ridiculously loaded team next year and will rival Kentucky in talent so I won't be so down on UC if they matched up with UK then. But there wasn't a chance in hell that this year's UC team should have been on the same court as Kentucky and it showed. Kentucky has a great frontline, a great bench, a solid PG, a fantastic backcourt and a good offense and fantastic defense. UC has a small, thin frontline, no bench, a horrible backcourt, a horrible offense, and a nice defense. I'm seriously shocked that Kentucky let UC back in the game for a few minutes.Originally Posted by macro

The two schools need to make this game happen....
Woo Hoo! Wildcats! Nice win!
It's a good night for us Briars
All I have to say is WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!! GO WILDCATS! UK has bragging rights for another 15 years!
Any chance that Huggins goes to UT?
To me that seems to be a step down, at UC basketball is pretty much king, at UT, he's 3rd banana to football and the ladies team..also IMO the SEC is a tougher conference then the new big eastOriginally Posted by RedRoser
Im a UK fan, but I would rank the Big East ahead of the SEC for the depth of teams. The last two national champions(Syracuse and UConn) came from the Big East. Add in current teams in Notre Dame, Villanova, and WVU, plus Cincinnati and Louisville coming into the league, and they are a match.Originally Posted by KronoRed
Plus, the SEC is consistently UK with certain teams having peak years(this year LSU, last year Mississippi St, etc).
Ahh..I forgot the teams in the Big E that aren't in the football part..whoopsOriginally Posted by WVRed
I think you forgot an SEC team there....
Or he may go to the Cleveland Cavs to coach Labron James now that Paul Silas is fired.Originally Posted by RedRoser
Also, I don't understand why UC fans think that this wasn't the year to play UK. UC still won 25 games and was ranked in the top 25 all year. How is that a down year? Compared to what? I guess UC should only play UK when UC is ranked No. 1 and peaking in December and UK is having a "down" year. Let's face it...UC is second round material every year (including this year). Nothing ever changes in that regard. So how, exactly, was this not a good year to play UK?
