    That doesn't beat what Louisville has accomplished? That doesn't beat getting sent home twice by your rival, once as the defending champ and heavy favorite? That doesn't beat an embarassing recruiting scandal? Really???
    UK fans are infamous for counting their titles....

    How many titles does UK have over the past 7 years. UofL? When was the last for each? How many times have each had the #1 recruiting class in the nation, multiple NBA draft picks, and not won a title?

After Kansas game it was people saying this team is turning the corner and now have faith in the team.

    Fans on this site have always made season ending opinions after each moment. It's like people don't realize things can change a lot in a month. Cal has already proved twice on teams people gave no hope to in 2011 and 2014 that he can get his teams playing their best come tournament time. Maybe it won't happen this year or maybe it will. All I know is this team imo has the pieces to be a very dangerous tournament team for people on a neutral site.
    I will disagree. But that's just me.

    I'm upset because this team is hurting my finances right now. Other than that, I'm upset because I have 3 hours of writing to do right now.

    Which is fine, we are all entitled to our own opinion. I will say this though say if the last two UConn teams that won titles were actually UK teams. Well during those seasons UK fans would have been going crazy saying how bad those teams suck, this team has no chance, etc. Those UConn teams had all kinds of flaws during their regular season. But come tournament time they were playing their best led by their guard play.

    UK had one of the top pgs in the nation and a guy in Murray who has the ability to take over a game even though he is not quite there yet. It's about getting their flaws fixed or at least a way to minimize their flaws come tournament time and let their strengths show more than weaknesses. Those UConn teams did it and shoot coach Cals 2011 and 2014 teams did it.

    UK struggling to stop aggressive dribble penetrating teams isn't going to suddenly get better with Ulis, Murray and Briscoe on the floor. One is eye to eye with me and the other two are heavy footed big wings. It is what it is at this point...

    Those UConn teams had seasoned veterans used to all out WARS in the old Big East. They also had a ton of size and experience inside that could actually play their role. Apples and anchovies...
