Is this Evansville loss worse than losing as a 1 seed to a 16 seed?

    I think it might be.

    This might be the most humiliating loss not only in the history of college basketball, but in the history of sport.

    Like all sports. From the beginning of time.

    Evansville is a bottom tier team in a mid major conference.

    Kentucky was an unbeatable juggernaut.

    Am I right here or am I right?

    Hmmm....a November game or a March Madness game. Tough one. o_O

    So many jokes to be made at UK's expense and you choose to start a thread with this.

    You're making me feel better.

    Evansville might finish with 8 wins all year. If you lose to a 16 seed, at least you lost to a conference champion.

    Not a 8 win team. I think losing to a team that won’t even make the round of 68 as a #1 seed is worse.

    This is possibly the worst loss in the history in all of sports. That’s not even hyperbole. It’s true.

    Nope.

    Nothing is worse than a # 1 seed losing to a # 16 seed.

    I’m telling you I think losing to a team that won’t even make the tournament is worse than losing to a conference champ.

    Especially with such a pompous, our poop don’t stink fan base like Kentucky.

    This is just incredible.

    If they win the championship nobody will remember this game. Go to bed before you hurt yourself.

    I understand what you are trying to say but it’s wrong. Stuff like this happens in November, to teams that go on and are still very successful.

    Losing as a 1 seed to a 16 seed ends your season and is in March, when you should have it figured out. You getting a 1 seed represents you being an elite team, throughout the whole season. Also, it’s usually the conference tournament champion, so a 16 seed most of the time are teams that didn’t win their conference outright but instead just had a good tournament.

    Thanks for helping me immediately get over this loss. I had a good laugh.

    Especially knowing we play OSU in a few weeks.

    If they win the title?

    Tall order child.

    Let’s live in the present. The #1 team in the country just lost to a inevitable 8-18 Evansville. A bottom tier team even amongst mid major teams.

    I’m here for you. I know this must hurt given your delusions of grandeur. Hopefully this brought you back to earth.

    Losing to a 16 seed is season ending. UK could still end up with a 1 seed. It’s a horrible loss no doubt but it’s a game in early November.

    Just to humor you. Would you take this loss or every single NCAAT loss OSU has suffered since 1960?

    Most 1-seeds don’t lose a top 4 draft pick right before the tourney either. Not saying we should have lost regardless but look what we did the following year when fully healthy.

    I understand why you made this post but on a serious note if you really have to ask this question you don’t know college basketball at all.

    Do you agree with him?


    Also, Hunter was a top 4 pick after the next year. He wasn’t a top 4 pick kind of player the game you lost him for, although it definitely was impactful.

    Uofk is only humiliated by 3 losses.

    Tennessee
    NCAAT

    UNC lost to Santa Clara. Duke fans wore Santa Clara shirts and chanted "Santa Claarrrrra" unc went on to win the championship.

    No I don’t agree with him. We own the two worst losses in NCAA history. We also own the best redemption story in NCAA history.

    The loss was funny, because a lot of these poosaycat fans on this board were ready to crown UK champs after beating a State team missing a crucial starter in Langford.

    However, this is a really dumb thread.

    Dude is trying to say that a team that is 2-0 with a win over Kentucky has won a quarter of what they will win all season?

    Everybody was losing to Chaminade.
    Hawaii takes away your killer instinct.

    The highlights on 12/21 will be much better. Imagine losing to a team that lost to Evansville. Yikes!
