I believe UK is hitting its peak at the absolute best time of the year. I could be wrong but I think they will take care of Louisville without a big problem. It may be close for a while because of the rivalry aspect of the game. But that's the only reason. UK has the advantage at every positon and its not that close at most of them. The game earlier this season looked closer than what it was. UL hit about 3 three pointers in the last 30 seconds or that would have been about a 15 point win. I think 15 is about right for this game too.
I'm sure most of the state will be in New Orleans by the end of the week. Lots of fights on Bourbon Street too between the UK/UL fans.
Reds Fan Since 1971
You've got to be a pretty sheltered college basketball fan to think that C-USA is one of the worst leagues.
...and this one belongs to the Reds.

I think Assembly Hall summed it up, but the best school in C-USA was an eight seed that got upset in the first round. Southern Miss made it as a 9 seed and got knocked out as well.
When people say that I donít know what Iím talking about when it comes to sports or writing, I think: Man, you should see me in the rest of my life.
Had the PAC 12 6th, oddly.
When all is said and done more is said than done.

Calipari almost has to return to Lexington with a national championship. If he doesn't, fairly or unfairly, the whispers will become shouts: His one-and-dones can't get it done … he needs to recruit players who aren't infatuated with the NBA … he can't win the big one.Kentucky fans are as patient as 3-year-olds. They know what they want, when they want it and they're not interested in excuses. I saw a UK fan wearing a T-shirt that said it all: We Want Eight.This will be Kentucky's second consecutive Final Four appearance under Calipari. You only get so many chances and at some point the one-and-done player model used by Calipari is going to suffer an ankle sprain.Calipari and Pitino can't stand each other. They once were on friendly terms, but the relationship has deteriorated beyond recognition.Not to break my own arm patting myself on the back, but, yeah. Told ya.Pitino likes to remind people that he helped get Calipari hired at Rick's alma mater, UMass, in 1988. Calipari likes to remind people that the story isn't entirely true.
