    And here is just one of your many posts you made. This after you inferred makong the final four wasn't any accomplishment for UK just a little while ago


    "The tournament can be such a gauntlet. There is nothing wrong with making it to the Final Four at all IMO. I've been super impressed with UK this season and their ability to even make it undefeated this far into the season. Not since 1991 UNLV. That's lofty company when you think of all the teams that couldn't do that."

    in in that same thread just a few posts before you said you picked UK in the prediction thread over WI.

    So yes PP92, no reason not to think you weren't being serious.

    Last 5 years, I go with UK.

    Duke:

    32-5; Sweet 16
    27-7; 1st Round
    30-6; Elite 8
    26-9; 1st Round
    35-4; Champions

    (150-31...82.8%)

    Kentucky:

    29-9; Final 4
    38-2; Champions
    21-12; NIT 1st Round
    29-11; Runner-Up
    38-1; Final 4

    (155-35...81.5%)


    Last 6 years, I go Duke because of the extra title.

    I'll take Duke's 5 championships in a way more competitive 30 years of basketball with more rounds in the tournament.

    Don't lump us all in that mix together. I'm certainly happy to make it to the Final Four, but its not something I celebrate over titles.

    Trust me, I'm not lumping all UK fans into the mix together. Not at all.

    You said I picked UK over Duke. That has never happened in the 40 years of my life. There is nothing wrong with making it to the Final Four but if you think making more Final Fours over 2 national titles is a greater accomplishment then I'll avoid a violation by simply saying......."I disagree." In all seriousness, UK fans shouldn't be disappointed with their season or their team's accomplishments at all but you've proven time and time again, over and over and over that having a rational conversation about anything in life is impossible so I just sit back and laugh at the absurdity of your posts these days. I hope you slept good.

    And for the record. As far as results, I'd take the two Duke titles in five years over Kentucky's five years, but only if I'm looking at results.

    However, I wouldn't trade in the enjoyment that I got from watching the Cats over the last five, whether it be the win over Ohio State in 2011, the 2012 team, the great run in 2014, and this season. Wouldn't trade the fun for one extra title.

    I have always had rational conversations.

    Actually you have said this year several times that Duke Sucks and will not make it out of the first round etc.
    Who is it who has always said all season long Duke Sucks?

    I rest my case. School is closed

    Yeah and @LRCW really thought Kentucky was going to lose every one of their first 38 games.
