    Re: University of Kentucky Men's Basketball - 6th edition

    It's hard for me to say, especially now that I go to UK. I'd probably just say both are equal, although a loss in Kentucky basketball kills me because there are less games and I HATE losing because it's almost always an upset when it comes to UK basketball, and all my friends give me hell whenever we lose, because it's usually to a lesser team.

    That being said, there is something magical about baseball season and I enjoy them both equally.

    Reds about 1000 to 1. Thats no disrespect to UK at all.

    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

    It's a loaded question, especially since the timing of it (baseball is April-October while college BB is November-April) but I would say about equal depending on expectations for the other.

    Most of the time during the past decade it depended on how Kentucky was doing in the NCAA tournament. This past year, I would have been higher on UK given the run in the tournament. If it was the latter part of the Billy Gillispie tenure, I would have been looking more toward ending the season to get to Reds baseball.

    It's a similar question for Ohio State in football. If the Reds are doing well, you follow the Reds. If not, you have football season to look forward to.

    UK and it's not really even that close for me. I'm from Southern KY, and UK basketball has been a way of life for me. My dad and I have gone to all kinds of Reds games before, but nothing compares to UK games..especially this year's SECT and F4 we went to together. Just awesome experiences all around. Not to mention, I'm a student at UK. The connection to the Cats is just infinitely greater than to the Reds.

    Does anybody else think Bob Knight is becoming more senile?

    Kentucky, year before last, started five players in the NCAA tournament games that had not been to class that semester. That's that one-and-done philosophy.
    What a maroon. I guess it's John Calipari's fault that the game passed Bob Knight by as well.

    What a sad, pathetic, old man. Still hasn't gotten over 1975, all these years later...

    the saddest to me is the crowd... Not a single free-thinker in the entire building. They're all so eaten up with Kentucky, it's like starved pigs at a trough.

    Bob Knight is an idiot.

    Besides the obvious that you all know (they all went to class except Orton), I had a class with Bledsoe and Cousins last year, and they went more than me. My roommate had the same teacher as John Wall and she once said that he "cared more than any of the rest of the kids in that class".

    Haters. Gonna. Hate.

    Knight is also 15-18 against UK. That may be the only team he has a losing record against that he has played more than two or three times. I'm sure our Indiana brethern could let us know for sure.
    Joe Hall still tells the story that he and Knight used to be fishing buddies. But when Hall started beating Knight fairly regularly that stopped. Basically if you beat Knight at anything your a sworn enemy for life. He's just bitter,bitter man for no good reason.

    Doron Lamb officially returning to UK for his sophomore season per UK Athletics on Twitter. Congrats Doron.

    Makes you wonder if this means Knight and Jones are gone... hard not to speculate.

    Actually I think he had a losing record agains Purdue as well. (I know Keady had a winning record against him.)

    There's a lot of things I'd change about college basketball, but I don't think I'd want Bob Knight leading the charge for any of them.

    Sad and senile is right, and the room is equally sad and senile.

    I wish I had been there. It's always been a dream of mine to get into a televised shouting match with Bob Knight.

    WMR -- I saw an ad that Knight is doing a show at one of the Lawrenceburg area casinos. Perhaps you should get a ticket. I also wonder if he'll change his tune any since there will be quite a few UK supporters in proximity.

    Doubtful. In the extreme. Bobby Knight is who he is, like him or hate him. To bastardize an expression from O Brother, Where Art Thou, he won't change for no man.

    Wow, sounds like a perfect opportunity for some UK fan to go down in Kentucky Youtube Lore.

    Gotta think in that situation the crowd will have your back? IDK, there will also undoubtedly be in attendance many of those who still worship at the altar of RMK.
