    Default Will UK make the NCAA Tournament?

    No this isn't an overreaction, it's a simple and honest question.

    Right now UK has 0 quality wins, 1 if you count Maryland. They have beat horrible teams, lost to good and bad teams.

    We are entering SEC play and they are 1-1 and could very easily be 0-2.


    If this team doesn't figure it out soon then they'll be on the bubble.

    Only other reason I say this is because a lot of analyst are already saying the same things.



    I still think they make it as a 7 or 8 seed but I am in no way confident about that.

    If things don't start getting any better, UK will unfortunately be able to sneak up on teams.

    If Kentucky finds themselves on the bubble, they're in.

    I would be terrified to bet on it. This could easily be a 10 loss team, right now its a bubble team at best.

    As of now, I say no; it's still early though. Their room for error is definitely running out.

    If UK does not make the tournament with the level of talent on the team, Calipari should and will receive a great deal of blame for a poor coaching performance this year. If he gets to receive the praise for what he did last year then it is only fair that he receive the blame for this year, if the Cats come up short and do not make the tournament.

    Yes. As long as there aren't a whole lot of teams from the basketball-rich state of Texas remaining on the schedule.

    I was thinking about starting this thread.

    I am hoping for the best but preparing for the worst. The Florida games and the game against Mizzou are HUGE because the SEC is weak in the eyes of voters. If they lose all of those- that would mean we have 0 wins versus the top 25.

    The SEC Tourney will be important as well. We can't have a questionable regular season and go out early in the conference tourney and expect the committee to put us in.

    The good thing is that we have a young team that could put it together and turn it around- UK fans, lets hope we start to see the type of consistency that it will take for this team to be successful.

    Good news is Ole Miss has become a tourney caliber team, so a win in Oxford will boost their resume.

    Gotta go at least 1-1 against Florida, beat Mizzou at home or win both games at A&M and Miss.

    Can't lose more than four games in the SEC. Even though UK isn't very good this year, and their resume is awful, I think they'll make it in.

    I think that as of right now, they are still in. A few more bad losses and who knows.

    They can't lose on Tuesday.

    18 or 19 wins and beating Florida and Missouri gets them in. Without those wins it would take 20+ wins and at rhis point I'm not confident this team can do it. Lots of time left for them to improve but it needs to start soon. However with winning it all last year it's not the end of the world situation for UK fans like it was with Billy G. Fans wouldn't be happy if we missed the tourny but you would hear too much about it.
