    John Wall is a basketball god.

    Wall can take this team for a long, long way when March rolls around. The youth factor is the only questoin mark this team has. How will this youth handle the March pressure? The talent is certainly there. To go into MSG and beat UConn in their backyard is pretty huge. Also winning all these close games will pay huge dividends in March.
    IU will be an interesting test just for the fact it is the first true road game for UK. As long as they match IU's intensity they should be fine but it will be interesting to see how these freshman handle a true road game.

    As you said, WMR, these early season games are fun for the fans but thats it. UConn, UK, UNC and Uof L and most other teams will all be much better teams by season's end than they are right now.
    FWIW, Harvard is pretty decent basketball team. That win will be a PLUS for UConn for RPI reasons. Cornell is also another Ivy League team that's pretty good this year too.

    Why are you fearing Indiana, WV? They're 4-4 despite not playing a ranked opponent yet.

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

    Two reasons:

    1. The game is in Bloomington. I wouldn't even count last night as an away game because a lot of Kentucky fans made the trip to NYC. That won't be the case on Saturday and it will be IMO the first game they play outside of the confines of the Bluegrass state and the first real hostile environment they will have seen.

    2. Any team that has ever been coached by Tom Crean is known for physical play. Kentucky already played one of those teams at Rupp earlier this season and it took a last second shot by Wall to win it.

    Bottom line is, it's UK's first real road test and its against a team that will take it right to Kentucky. I look for officiating to play a factor as well. I'm not saying they can't win, but it will be just as difficult as last night.

    No way. UK handles IU.

    I'm not sure IU is athletic enough to keep up. Rivalry games are usually pretty tough to win, but I think it will be a large margin victory.

    IU will be game, Crean already is in the process of a great job turning them around, and they looked pretty good against Pittsburgh the other night. Won't be easy.

    John Calipari is now 2nd only to Adolph Rupp in number of wins to start a career at Kentucky (9-0). Adolph Rupp went 10-0 in 1930-1931.

    As far as IU goes....all you Bengals fans just remember the Oakland game a few weeks ago. Even bad teams beat good ones sometimes.

    Championships for MY teams in my lifetime:
    Cincinnati Reds - 75, 76, 90
    Chicago Blackhawks - 10, 13
    University of Kentucky - 78, 96, 98, 12
    Cincinnati Bengals - None
    Chicago Bulls - 91, 92, 93, 96, 97, 98

    Indiana? No way. We are looking better this year, but not THAT much better.
