    Indiana and Purdue fans are going at it the B1G thread. They hadn’t done it in awhile and are probably just knocking off the rust before the season starts.

    How is that enough said? If 90% of the state is uk fans then why is it unreasonable to believe that 90% of racists in this state are UK fans. Y’all don’t allow racists to be uk fans or something?

    That’s not me being an Internet tough guy. That’s me responding to dude saying he wouldn’t be threatened by the likes of me, like we know each other at all.

    ...you talk about racists as if they're tracked/identified the same way as registered voters. Your bias(es) have been doing all the talking for you.

    Agree to disagree. Your gonna believe what you want anyways. And yes my personal bias against uk is fueling my argument but that doesn’t make my my side of the argument wrong.

    Since when do we correlate racism with fandom? There’s absolutely none there. There are regions and states that happen to have more racist people than others do, but it has zero (0!!!) affect on who you choose to cheer for in college. Why is this still being discussed?

    Correct. They have to check a box of attestation on the application.

    What makes your argument wrong is that it's wrong. You made up shit about burning crosses and then about Kentucky being one of the most racist states in America.

    Back on topic, looks like MSU and Kentucky have the most votes so far. Since Kentucky has the most fans on here, seems most people are leaning towards the Spartans as champs. Not surprising

    Yea, Blackshear would have certainly put us over the top. Richards and Montgomery have a lot to prove this season, though I’m higher on EJ than I am Nick. I think Nate could end up being huge for us if he has any sort of post game. His ability to spread the floor will do wonders for our guards and wings.

    Well it's a helluva lot more reliable than your "beliefs". Read or do some research before you post a bunch of nonsense and try to pass it off as fact.

    I really like Nate; think he can do multiple things for us. But I didn't like what I saw of EJ. Nick is what he is, but I expected more of EJ.

    No, it just makes your argument based purely on opinion.

    You’re right, 100%. It doesn’t and that fact makes every single argument I made stupid and irrelevant. Like I confessed I got offended by tard nation comment and came back with UKKK and it snowballed from there. And I got even more triggered when some of the UK fans claimed that I made up that we were regulary referred as the “blackbirds” for a long period of time, but given I was wrong on the crosses, so I can see why my credibility was shot to 0.

    And again, I was wrong on the crosses, i didn’t make it up, I read it on the home board and ran with it, like a poster ITT said. Then I did the research I should have done before stating it, and found out it was not true just rumors, so that’s my bad. And it’s also my bad for derailing the thread.

    Ima tuck tail and bow out. Good day fellas

    -Harrelson
    -Liggins
    -Humphries
    -Mulder (until a couple weeks ago)

    ....all played under Cal and were perceived with low expectations to make it to the NBA.

    Calling people ******ed and telling them to put their helmet back on is just as bad as being a racist.

    I’d Probly replace liggins with Miller. Liggins was a 5 star if I’m not mistaken. He was a billy G recruit I think. Granted his college career could/would have made u think his chances to succeed in the nba were slim.

    Fwiw, me @JC for 3 and @RipThru tend to do this a lot. Not sure how racism came to be a focal point of this thread. Seems a bit arbitrary, no?

    "Considered a four-star recruit by Rivals.com, Liggins was listed as the No. 6 point guard and the No. 28 player in the nation in 2008."

    Some of the UK guys around here definitely love to take shots at Louisville. Unfortunately for them, it’s all they’re really known for

    jarms told me Skal was the reason Kentucky was gonna win the 2016 national title. I told him you can’t know that without ever seeing him play college ball. He said don’t question my eye for talent.

    Lol at jarms.

    ...it's a shame how easy it is to forget about him. Gilgeous-Alexander is another one, but quite the argument ensued the last time it came into question whether or not he developed under Cal.

    That’s on me. Like I said I got triggered by the “tard nation” comment and came back with UKKK and it snowballed from there. My GFs nephew is mentally and physically handicapped, who is 13 And will never be able to walk or talk, so I have a bias against people who make jokes or slights about mental ******ation. I mean I’m not gonna go all holy and say I’ve never said an idea or concept was ******ed, but to call other people ******ed as an insult bothers me. Mentally and physically handicapped people didn’t choose that lot in life no more than you or I got the chance to choose the color of our skin.

    And my stances are based a lot more off of my personal experiences than just my opinion, but that’s neither here nor there. Jimbo hit the nail on the head, it has nothing to do with fandom. It’s just the part of the state I live in, everyone is a uk fan, so every liar, thief, racists, bully etc I’ve ever known was a UK fan, but I realize that’s not fair and in no way depicts the fan base as a whole nor should it affect whichever team you choose to root for.

    But on the other hand Most of my best friends are UK fans as well, not to mention plenty of people I know that are great people and upstanding citizens.

    I was angry at the “tard nation” comment and I responded in a terrible way and I’m sorry for derailing the thread. And no sarcasm, thanks for putting me in my place bc I flew off the handle.

    Damn I’m gettin taken to the woodshed in this thread, I thought he was a low end 5 star for some reason. Still 28th ranked player in his class isn’t quite the same as getting harrelson, humphries, mulder, and even Gabriel and Miller to the nba imo. But again that’s splitting hairs bc liggins college career wasn’t super spectacular and it is surprising to me he’s still on a nba roster so I totally understand why you included him.

    DJ will start once healthy imo. But if Perry can do that consistently ^ then we will be fine at the guard. CC started off slow just like Kimble is so I imagine he’ll be better as the season progresses.
