    Well, you can tell I'm not a born-and-raised Kentuckian...I can't believe there's discussion about college basketball, when the college football and NFL seasons haven't even started yet. Basketball...we're talking about basketball here...in August!

    Cal espouses his "coach speak" about enjoying the process, but he's right.
    This team is full of potential, but 20-30 point predictions are like "the world is ending" prediction, usually vocalized by a nut. That being said---this team has the potential to be an all-timer. Point guard play- check, board bangers-check, defensive intensity-check, shooting-check, attitude-check. Gonna be a fun year.
    1. Yes
    2. No

    Have you found a time in Kentucky where people don't talk about Kentucky basketball?

    When I first moved here, I was told there's only 2 seasons in Kentucky...basketball season, and the season leading up to basketball season.

    If Dan Dackich is on board, which he seemingly is after slobbering all over the Bahamas trip, he either see's something special with these cats or he spent the whole trip drunk. Either is possible..

    I don't get the hate for Dackich. Maybe he's a tool on Twitter, I don't follow him so I wouldn't know. But in my opinion he is the best color man in college hoops. Wish he did more UK games.

    I like Dackich too. He is a change of pace from the average color guy.

    We're in the same boat on this one.

    I don't do twitter so I don't get to see that side of him, I always enjoy it when he calls a game though.

    You know Calís ego needs the 2nd title to join the Jay Wright 2 title elite club. Anything other than that, will be remembered as leaving a title on the table, fair or not.

    I know that is how Joe B. Hall felt when the 1984 club lost to Georgetown. He always felt that when you win a 2nd title or more you were in elite company.
