    Re: #8 Kentucky vs #9 ???

    I think the jury is still out on Kentucky, I think they pry got the worst draw of anyone in the tourney. Asking a young team to take on physical teams like Kstate and Wichita St is asking a lot. I don't think they can make it past kstate honestly.

    k-state has 5 wins over top 30; uk has one.

    i'd love to see k-state/shox match-up.

    Go K-State!

    I don't see many scenarios where I prefer a Kentucky victory. Much more fun to watch Cal flounder.


    Since we are an elite team now, let's go get that One Cyclone Moment.
    Make this one for the ages!

    Re: #8 Kentucky vs #9 ???

    And listening to pundits constantly making excuses for Calipari is beyond annoying. He hasn't had control of his team for two years and they keep saying the players aren't as good as they thought. BS, Cal go lucky with his Allstar team 2 years ago. Any coach with a brain could have won a championship with that team. Next year, UK will be unjustly top 5 again I'm sure.

    Kentucky has sucked away from home as well. Kansas State did decent in conference road game they played against teams that did not make the tourney. The problem is that they only had three of those, going 2-1. Kentucky went 5-3 in their conference road games against teams that did not make the tournament. Kentucky's road prowess looks better only because they played more crummy teams on the road and even then still dropped several stinkers. The SEC has FIVE teams with RPIs lower than Texas Tech and seven lower than West Virginia. That's crazy.

    Re: #8 Kentucky vs #9 ???

    this will be a good indication of just how strong the big12 is going into the tournament. i've said all along that the big12 is a bit overrated. friday night will tell a lot. k-state was competitive with everyone in-conference, home and away, save a couple games, and beat everyone sans baylor. unfortunately, uk looks a lot like baylor size-wise.

    I'm really not trying to make this a personal jab but it seems like you like to spout the ESPN/media lines about all the "favorites" to win the tournament. I'm guessing you have Louisville/Michigan St./Kentucky/Duke/Florida all going far??

    Not necessarily. Kentucky has more talent on their roster than pretty much any other team, certainly more than any other Big 12 team, save arguably KU. Their biggest problem is consistent play. If they get it together to beat KSU, it just means that they played to potential, not necessarily a statement on the strength of the Big 12 in general. Just the same, if KSU comes out and wins, it's not necessarily a statement of the dominance of the Big 12. Hard to take much away from a game against UK with their inconsistency.

    Re: #8 Kentucky vs #9 ???

    I agree the media acts like UK isn't even playing K-State. I think this game could go either way. UK will not like the physical style that K-State plays. This game has to be considered a toss-up. It's crazy the media is already talking about a UK/WSU matchup when the UK/K-State matchup seems intriguing.

    Did you watch Kentucky play Florida in that SEC title game? They play like that and they are going to be a VERY tough out.


    “They're very, very hard to guard,” Notre Dame head coach Mike Brey said. “They're really good. And with Niang in the middle kind of wheeling and all those guys spreading you out, they're kind of a nightmare matchup. And they're men. They're really men.”

    Well, UK has beaten Louisville once already this year.

    I thought Florida played like a team that already knew that game didn't matter. In the end when UK really needed a basket they didn't even get a shot off for like the last 2.5 minutes. They will struggle with K-State's D.

    I watched bits and pieces, they looked ok. Their problem hasn't been when they're "on" this year, it's been inconsistency and what they look like when they're "off."

    I was more referring to the poster making comments in more than one thread that sound exactly like something Vitale would be spouting. "Never count out an Izzo coached team", "Louisville is playing as good as anyone in the country", and "Kentucky has the talent to beat anyone in the country" to name a few. Guess I'm just cranky and sick of hearing those overused phrases.

    We were supposed to lose UConn and never even had a shot according to anyone at all. I think we lead that game 31-9 or something at one point too. Kansas State wins this game.
