    Baylor Beats Kentucky

    I know that a lot of folks here don't like Baylor, but I was really happy to see that the Bears beat Kentucky today. Good for the conference, good for college hoops!

    Re: Baylor Beats Kentucky

    Anyone get really tired of this conference allegiance stuff? I want to hate my rivals, not root for them. Scott Drew is a sleaze (So is Coach Cal), but I hope Baylor loses every game.

    Re: Baylor Beats Kentucky

    When I watched Kentucky play Duke, I wasn't very impressed. It was a very sloppy game and I didn't think Kentucky played that well together. I think Kentucky has a lot of talent but at this point in the season I don't think Kentucky deserves their ranking.

    They ran into a team that could match them athletically, neither team is a team yet. In fact I think with our showing today, we are more of a team.

    Also please people don't get excited over teams beating Kentucky this year because the team that won that title are now in the NBA.

    Kentucky can't score. I would call them "offensively challenged," but that would insult those challenged teams.
    Kentucky has a lot to figure out before they're a good team.

    Over/Under on the total under-the-table money being paid by both teams? I'll go with $250,000.

    Is that pure cash, or are you valuing the Escalade's and so forth? I would probably take the under on just cash, but the over if you include "toys".

    Re: Baylor Beats Kentucky

    You can virtually hear the NCAA getting prepared to investigate Kentucky since they're having a down year...

    And Okie St loses to Virginia Tech, whom everybody said was terrible in reference to how bad they beat Iowa.

    Re: Baylor Beats Kentucky

    This is not the UK of last year. If he was playing anywhere else, Noel would be a 2-3 year player. He is not an impact freshman. Baylor has talent, but Scott Drew will find away to derail any sense of cohesiveness. At this point, I'd take Austin over Noel in a heartbeat. Austin my get beat around in the big12, but his wings and fades are already causing me nightmares.

    I don't want to root for rivals, either, but any buildup of ISU opponents' RPI is fine with me for practical purposes. I hope BU does well but ISU sweeps the series and finishes ahead in the standings.

    UK's rank was still riding on reputation entering this week — I might drop them out of the top 25 it were up to me.

    Nothing wrong with the losses (Duke, Notre Dame, Baylor), although in case of ND & BU, they'll get cred in next ranking mainly from beating Kentucky. No true quality wins (Maryland, possibly).

    I was one of them. Might need to eat some crow on this.
