    Umm, traffic problem. Fire code? I don't know but you could sure see a difference in attendance with UK was on TV.

    By the way, I sure enjoyed meeting Scribe, Leatherneck, seeing Goldie from afar, seeing westsider, Jim Schue again and meeting bigblueinsanity and Jonathan Fraysure.

    I agree with everything spindoc says, except it was a first meeting westsider and Jim Schue. By the way they didn't even have the UK game on in the media hospitality room.

    I was really shocked when I didn't see it on here.

    Maybe they were afraid there'd be no sweet16 coverage if they had it on.

    Asked a security person and she said the ones who made that decision said it would detract from the event being held there in Rupp Arena. I don't know who those decision-makers were.

    For the past few years one would never even know the NCAA was going on if one stayed all day in Rupp during the Sweet 16.
