    I agree with the basic sentiment of your post, but the no quality wins thing is just untrue. Virginia Tech will be an NCAA tournament team. It's a quality win.

    First year in a while that I'll be able to watch the game with some of my buddies. Looking forward to it and I say the Cats pull it out in a classic UK vs UL game that goes to OT.

    Was there a reason given by anyone for the Friday afternoon tip?

    Not wanting to compete with bowl games on Saturday or something?

    The Friday afternoon tip is ridiculous.

    John Ramsey's statement that David Padgett is a better X's and O's coach that John Calipari is even more ridiculous.

    Ramsey is the Louisville version of Matt Jones. Only difference is I don't know a single Louisville fan that doesn't think that guy is an idiot.

    My understanding is that CBS likes it as a high-profile lead-in to their lone bowl game contract, the Sun Bowl, which immediately follows.

    Drives me crazy, but CBS is pulling the strings as long as they’ve got the rights to the game.

    The only thing I'm worried about with this game is the walk to and from my car!

    Agreed, they have no top 50 RPI wins and 3 in the top 100. VT is decent. They have plenty of top 50 games left, but they haven't proven much yet.

    Lots of fake news on Twitter about John Higgins refereeing tomorrow.
    I can promise you he’s not. He’s not even refereeing in the SEC this year.
    I’ll be honest though, I’d rather have Higgins than two of the three working tomorrow....

    Getslow & Deuce are reffing the UK/UL game? That doesn't seem fair.

    To some of the comments about the U.L. Coach. considering the situation that D. Padgett was named the Cards head coach .....imo Padgett is doing a very good job with U.L. . I haven't watched all their games, so some U.L. fans here may have a different, more accurate opinion than mine on Padgett.
    As for this game, I think that it's a toss up and can see either team winning. As in most games anywhere ....whoever can control the boards, limit turnovers and defend will win. I'll give U.K. a slight edge with the game played in Rupp.

    Kentucky 79
    Louisville 75

    Must win for Cal or he’s stuck with the “roll the ball out” label for good.
