Can't win with 'em
Can't win without 'em
I was impressed with how Ohio State handled themselves before, during, and after the game. For those who might have missed it, a reporter in New Jersey asked the players "How could Ohio State let a team who was led primarily by freshmen beat them?" Diebler started to answer and Matta stopped him and said "I'm sorry, what the hell are you talking about? That was a stupid question. Kentucky is a very good team and won their conference tournament."
I feel bad for Ohio State after this weekend, with everything going on with Tressel in football and losing with IMO a team that was better than the Oden team. Hopefully you guys rebound next year.
Don't know what you are talking about with Knight's shot. It was rushed, but at the speed the game was going, there was a difference. I could tell as soon as it left that it had a shot at going in. If Knight's shot was ugly, Buford's was atrocious.
As for Cal, I've said the same thing about Thad Matta in the past. Given what is going on with Tressel right now and Jim O'Brien before Matta, I wouldn't be throwing rocks if I lived in a glass house. Ohio State isn't exactly an example of NCAA compliance.
As for the Tar Heels comment, I think Puffy summed it up.
Great game UK fans. One of the worst losses of my fan life, but a hell of a game. OSU didn't lose that game, they simply lost to a very, very good team that was able to match up with them extremely well all over the court.
Congrats to the Wildcats and yes that truly was painful for me to say. Elite 8 even if it ends now is a spectacular year for them.
2006 Redzone mock Draftee's- 1(st) Daniel Bard(redsox), 1(st sup)( Jordan Walden (Angels), 2(nd) rd.- Zach Britton(Orioles), 3(rd) Blair Erickson(Cardinals), 3(rd) Tim Norton( Yankees),(cuz its a Tim Hortons thing
Pain heals. Chicks dig scars. Glory... lasts forever.
Final Four, eh? Not bad, that coach you have might be a keeper.
BTW, an Ohio State fan accusing Kentucky of cheating when its own football program is having problems and the basketball program has had its own share of infractions is kinda like the pot calling the kettle black.

This is the time. The real Reds organization is back.
Here's 39 pics from Rivals of both post-game celebration/ceremony and some game shots as well...
I have to say, UK's run is pretty cool to watch. As of last Wednesday, I'm tentatively a Wildcat since I got accepted into their graduate school.
I'm sort of a Johnny Come Lately (been an OSU fan all my life, so Friday's game was odd - my new school vs. my life-long team), but I'm definitely hoping for UK to go all the way.
I'll have to start getting learned up on my UK sports history so I can fit in at the games next year.
Anybody think the Princeton scare helped Kentucky in the tournament?
It's unbelievable what this team has accomplished. They have come so far in such little time. It was only Feb 23 when thet lost to Arkansas and looked to be no better than 6 or 7 seed in the tourney. No more than one win in the tournament. But something clicked. I think finally winning a close road game in Knoxville was the turning point. That gave them the confidence they needed to execute in these close late games. They built on that from there. Whatever happens from here is gravy. They have become one of the legendary teams in UK history no matter what happens this weekend.
