    I knew this season would likely be a bridge year. I just expected them to start clicking by now. Noel has done fine and Poythress is starting to "get it". Archie Goodwin might be the one who makes or breaks this season.
    You are dead on. It takes not only veterans, but veterans that have actually played, sprinkled in the mix.

    There is still time to get it figured out....it was only a month or so back UCLA didnt have a clue. Right now I think it is a confidence issue as well with the Cats. A big win will get them heading in the right direction.
    ...and this one belongs to the Reds.

    Re: UK Basketball 8th Edition

    The UK-UNC series is back on. UK headed to Chapel Hill next season while UNC comes to Rupp in 2014.

    As light as this years schedule was, next years will be tough:

    @UNC
    Louisville
    Baylor @ Jerryworld
    Michigan State @ Chicago in the Champions Classic
    Big East team (although that could fall through with the conference collapsing)

    If I'm not mistaken UK did sign a deal to play at the Barclays Center again next season, could be wrong though.

    What's tough about it?

    Big time programs should always do it this way. There is a reason Izzy's teams at MSU play well in the tournament.

    UK is playing in Barclays again next season, already confirmed and verified by Coach Cal.

    I was referencing how stacked next seasons schedule looks compared to this seasons. With how light this seasons is and the lack of quality wins UK is on the bubble right now for making the tournament. Next year looks a lot better.

    Forgot that UK was also considering a neutral site game with Duke as well. No idea if thats still in the works.

    Too bad IU was too scared to play UK neutral site this season in Indy, they likely could have gotten a little bit closer to back to .500 vs UK.

    Re: UK Basketball 8th Edition

    If I had to pick a favorite to win it all today, I guess I would have to go with Kansas. At the same time, it wouldn't surprise me to see them stub their toe against a midmajor yet again...

    There aren't any great teams this season... More and more I'm thinking the champion this year could be some team out of left field who gets hot at the right time and catches a few lucky breaks along the way.

    I'm not one to usually condone violence, but I hope one of our guys puts an elbow into Marshall Henderson's grill tomorrow night. That kid might be the biggest punk I've ever seen in the SEC.

    I see what you are saying WV. The schedule is what it is. You just never know how it is gonna look at the end of the year.....ask the Notre Dame football team!

    This dude has been arrested for using counterfeit money to purchase marijuana. TWICE.

    Epic DB doesn't really come close to describing him...

    He will drop a ton on UK if they don't seriously sack up and get in his grill.

    If I was an IU fan I would be ticked that my administration didn't jump all over that neutral site deal. IU would have been heavy, heavy favorites to win that game.

    I don't know, if they had to bump the South Dakota St game, it would have hurt IU's RPI. Maybe we were better off after all.

    Playing the game in Louisville for four years -- both teams alternating yearly as the "home" team -- would have been fine with me. Alas, that ship has sailed.
