    Is that a shot at me? You son of a B. j/k

    I hope it's epic, but I have a sick feeling that it's going to get ugly.

    I'm happy though. After the way things have gone at IU a sweet 16 run I consider a success.

    Well, so far only the red-headed stepchild UM has let the Big 10/12 down. At least now maybe their coaches know the difference between "Ohio" and "Ohio St." and that both are capable of kicking their butts.

    True, there's not any amount of points that IU could lose by this week that would make me think the season anything other than a gigantic success.

    The one advantage IU is likely to enjoy is 100% of pressure is on Kentucky. If the game's close down the stretch, IU is less likely to tighten up.

    Jordan Hulls response to the VCU defense was practically unwatchable and I'm sure UK will note that in their preparation.

    As for the game, IU has beaten them once which has to make them feel like they can do it again, but UK is playing a whole lot better than they were early in the season. My gut tells me UK will win rather handily.

    Yeah. I kind of look at like that's the first game I can think of where Hulls played like poop all around and they still won. That's something.

    Looking forward to round 2 myself. In my mind, UK should win handily. But that is what I thought about the first game as well. I see three things that are gonna determine the game......

    1. Can Indiana get and make their 3's?

    2. Can Indiana hold their own with UK's bigs in the paint?

    3. What Teague is gonna show up for UK?

    And perhaps most important, which T.Jones is going to show up for UK. He was a zombie in the first game.

    I would love IU for a long time if they some how found a way to beat UK for a second time in one year. It would make for a fantastic game, two dedicated fan bases going at each other. I know UK fans don't like what Bob Knight has to say about their school, but that is what makes rivarlies great. There is something fantastic about the rivarly between two schools in college that doesn't exsist at the next level.

    That said I don't think the game is close. I actually have no a clue as to how IU took down OSU and UK. Its a nice story, finally a start for IU, but I see the game going more like the second match up with OSU where it really isn't close.

    I think UK wins handily, but if it's close IU is definitely battle tested and can pull it out.

    On a side note I find it interstesting that Teague's high school team went to the state championship game the after he leaves. Tell's me a bit about Teague the kid.

    Good stuff peeps.

    But there is a reason why IU and Vanderbilt beat UK. 3-point shooting and a quality big man. IU and Vandy have both. Let us not forget that Carolina had UK on the ropes at Rupp.

    IU and UK are alot alike in the fact that tournament experience is lacking on both ends. The Big Ten was brutal this year, IU folded quite a few times on the road when there was a hostile envirnoment. The SEC was soft but UK prevailed in every contest they had there up until the conference championship.

    I have no idea what all that means but look forward to watching the game.

    Uhh, no.

    3 out of UK's top 6 players have been to the Final Four.
