    SEC media picked UK third behind UT and Florida. I think they may surprise some people this year. But I"m always optimistic this time of year. In the past Billy G's second year teams improved tremendously at UTEP and Texas A & M.

    Porter might be the PG extremely early, but I fully expect Liggins or Galloway to take over before too long. Reportedly, Liggins in particular has made tremendous strides in recent weeks. I know Porter was working on his shot, shooting over 500 three-pointers a day in the offseason, but as a PG, he is extremely weak moving with the ball and a turnover machine as earlier mentioned.

    I agree, Javy. I should have included in my post that I fully expect Liggins or Galloway to supplant Porter sooner rather than later.

    Last time I checked, Tyler Smith can only play one position at a time.

    UK will sweep Tennessee this year.

    time to show Hopson exactly why he made such a poor decision to play for Pearl and his No-D-playing Merry Band of Thugs attired in their ugly orange apparel.

    Wow. There is an awful lot of optimism in this thread for a team that has awfully big holes to fill with freshmen. It must be a down year for the SEC.

    I like the new uniforms, but alas, I'm afraid they won't do. Kentucky will never get back to it's previous level of greatness until it once again embraces the ugly uniforms of the mid nineties.
    The Triangle pattern on the shorts, the "denim blue" uniforms. Kentucky and classy just can't go together.

    If there is a hell, that dreadful song is playing on a continuous loop.
