    These cats are a work in progress and are no where near ready for Kansas. Jayhawks by 20+

    They lost to Michigan State in 2013.

    1-1 against Duke.

    1-1 against Michigan State.

    2-0 against Kansas.

    UK has won three straight in the Champions Classic though.

    I don't think we're ready for prime time. If the Cats pull this out I will be shocked.

    Prediction:

    I think the final score will be closer than most are thinking, but I expect KU to win by about 7-10. After the game, the worst of the BBN will be on full display as well.

    Kansas will take this opportunity to make a big statement and drop as many on UK as they can. This could be a 30 blowout.

    Unfortunately you are correct. BBN gets more upset over meaningless regular season games than any fanbase in the sport. Over reaction Wednesday will be on full display.

    You really believe this about the majority of BBN? I've seen a few of the blue goofs be that way but most of the fans I know are pretty level headed. However, as we all know the squeaky wheel gets the grease and when there are a few idiots they'll get the attention.

    Kentucky will hand around early, but I'd expect Kansas to pull away and win by double digits.
