    Kansas' fans will be in fanatical form with memories of the 30+ point beat down last year in Chicago, a game that had Bill Self wishing his bottle of water was vodka in his post game interview.
    Too much noise, too much craziness. Similar to Indiana in 2012.
    Ill pick the Jayhawks by 10-14. Allen Fieldhouse is one of the toughest places in the nation to play.

    I think Kansas wins a close one, but I never go against the Cats in the poll.

    Don't have any problem with them losing this one, just hope they show a lot of fight and play well.

    My Aunt and Uncle and I planed on attending this game back last summer. Things came up and we couldn't make the trip. It is on my bucket list to attend a UK game there.

    Kentucky 68
    Kansas 81

    One of UK's greatest strengths is getting back their own misses. That will be nullified by a really good defensive rebounding team in the Jayhawks. Without 2nd chance points, I don't think UK can win this game. Combine that with UK's inability to make a high percentage of threes, nor a high percentage of freebies from the line, and I think Kansas wins this one somewhat comfortably.

    If the game was being played in Rupp, I'd take the Cats.

    If it were on a neutral floor, I'd say it's a coin-flip.

    With it being in the Phog, I'll say KU wins it 73-64.

    I don't really see much of a difference between the two teams.

    Congrats to you on finding one of "those" Kentucky fans to bet with. Only a blue neck or someone with a gambling problem would bet on Kentucky to win this game.

    As it is every night with this team, how competitive Kentucky is will be decided by the interior players.

    You're obviously a super knowledgeable guy, so I'd simply say that you need to watch more Kansas games. They are a high level shooting team, and really, really good offensively.

    I didn't mean style-wise. I'm saying Kansas and Kentucky are similar in terms of overall talent. Believe me, I've seen plenty of KU games.

    And the greatest place on earth to watch a basketball game. Apologies to Cameron Indoor.
