    #8 Kentucky vs #9 ???

    So, apparently Kentucky has a bye in the first round against K-State. My Big 12 pride is in overdrive here and I really think their defense will annoy the hell out of Kentucky. I'm just stunned at how the national "experts" are assuming the Kentucky win.

    Kentucky has the talent to beat anyone. If they figure that out, and learn to play team ball, they could be dangerous.

    Kentucky has more talent but KSU will come out and punch them in the mouth. Maybe I am a Big 12 homer but I think KSU will be to physical for Kentucky. The only way KSU loses this one is if the zebra's decided to call every touch a foul, which is possible against kentucky.

    It should be a decent game, but KSU hasn't been so good away from the #OctagonOfDumb. There's my tourney bracket $0.02 for ya.

    I will take Kentucky, though I wouldn't write off KSU as easy as some, I just think they are most likely to win. Either way, it is going to be awesome to watch the WSU v Kentucky/KSU game!


    Yep, this thread has just been pwned.

    Too bad. They have flaws. Kentucky is one of the most selfish teams in the NCAA.

    The hype for Kentucky reminds me of the hype for UConn in 2012. That didn't go so well for them...

    Re: #8 Kentucky vs #9 ???

    This was an easy pick for me. I hate Kentucky but their size will kill KSU. Kentucky wins and wins pretty easily I think. I also have Kentucky beating Wichita State and am flirting with them even beating Louisville. Gross

    I like KSU in this one but theyconcern me a little playing away from home. I think WSU beats either toget the sweet 16.

    Re: #8 Kentucky vs #9 ???

    I agree that UK is pretty selfish. However, I think Cal has their attention right now - as evidenced by their performance against Florida in the conference tourney. If they play like they did in the second half of that game, they could very well win their first 2 games in the NCAA, IMHO.


    Utah Utes, Illinois Illini. The University of Pennsylvania thought about following this pattern by calling themselves the Pennsylvania Pencils. However, they were afraid their students would start chanting "We're No. 2"

    Show me where they have played two good games in a row all year. Kentucky is a team full of individuals out there trying to show they have NBA skills. They don't run any type of consistent offense and their defense is marginal at best. They dropped multiple terrible games, even at home, in the worst power conference in America. I really feel dirty rooting for either of these teams to win but I'll have to go for K-State because I hate them slightly less than Kentucky.

    None of the "experts" mention Kentucky is 3-8 vs top 50 teams and Kansas State is 7-8. Problem is KSU not playing at home.
