    UK basketball question

    Feb 28 vs. Georgia is Kentucky's last home game this year. I am assuming this is senior night . . . can anyone confirm?

    Yes it is.

    Just bought 2 tickets on stubhub.com. $130 for upper level. That's an expensive seat!! I've been to several games, but never to senior night so it will be worth it.

    I went to Senior Night a few years ago, and happened upon really cheap seats, and the view wasn't bad at all. I think I got four tickets for $15 or 16 apiece. Then again, it was the year Saul Smith was the only senior, so maybe THAT'S why it was so cheap Now that I think about it, the stellar recruiting class of Bobby Perry, Sheray Thomas and Lukasz Obrzut are the seniors this year, so there may be a similar deal out there!

    I predict huge applause for Woo, but very little for Perry and Thomas.

    What do they do for UK's senior day?

    IU's tradition, which Davis continued and hopefully Sampson will as well, is after the game to honor all the senior cheerleaders, trainers, etc... then to have each player go to the microphone and thank whoever they want.
    They can take as long or as short as they like. Probably one of my favorite things about IU basketball.

    That's a special day for the seniors. It's when they get their final checks from the boosters.

    At our house, we sit around and wonder how they managed to lose twelve games in a season once again, and speculate as to which region they'll be the #8 seed.

    Help stamp out, eliminate, and do away with redundancy.

    It will be that way at your house until the TUB is drained.
    Not this year...maybe a Wild Card

    I go to almost all home games and always Senior Day (last home game). It's emotional and extra exciting no matter who the seniors (of course WOOing will be fun this year). If Wildcats are in a down to the wire race in the conference, it's, obviously, an extra, extra exciting game. We can only hope for that this year, I'm afraid.

    Chip, Chip, Chip, you are way too cynical.
    teach tolerance.

    As far as what takes place on senior day . . .

    I have never been to a live senior day, but I have seen several on TV. Before the game, each senior basketball player is announced individually. They are usually accompanied by their parents and are given a framed jersey. The closing of the ceremony is a very teary-eyed version of "My Old Kentucky Home".

    Someone mentioned in passing on the other side of the board that Randolph really got reamed last night on the pre-game radio show. Can someone who heard it elaborate? How is the tone right now in Lexington towards Tubby?

    I mentioned it.

    Morris made some Rex Grossman-like quotes in the Lexington paper after the Alabama Game.

    http://www.kentucky.com/mld/heraldle...s/16726376.htm

    "My head wasn't in the game," he said after UK's 72-61 loss at Alabama. "Obviously, the way I came out early, it was a tough day for me getting myself ready to play."

    In UK's first six trips downcourt, Morris committed two turnovers and missed a shot. That sent him on his way to a career-high eight turnovers, which marred his 15-point, seven-rebound, four-block afternoon. The blocks equaled a career high.

    When asked where his head was, Morris said, "I don't know. If I knew where it was, I'd have an idea of where to find it."
    Dave Baker was killing him and Oscar Combs was defending him. Natually, the callers mostly agreed with Dave.

    As far as the tone in Lexington, I dunno. But my SWO UK buddies all say Tubby is done.
