    Any tOSU fan thumping their chest about basketball needs to do the world a favor and drink some bleach. Like, a lot of it.

    Not reading the whole thread but I hadn't seen mono or KerryRhodes post here since the last time UK lost. What a coincidence they both start threads on the same day...

    If Kentucky is as bad as MonoRojo says, why would he need points?

    Well it was a 20pts rout, not a close game at all. Don’t think home court would have mattered when you lose in a blowout.

    I wouldn't care if they dropped out of the top 25. Claw their way back.

    Nope.

    Nothing will ever be more degrading than 16-UMBC over 1-UVa.

    NEVER!

    You lost by 20 to a 16 seed on a neutral court and don't think you could've lost at home? You didn't get upset, you got ran through.

    I'd drop them to at least 7 or 8, maybe a little more. We have the worst loss in CBB this year, and possibly the best win. Guess we'll see which one was the outlier.

    Matt Norlander is not impressed by Kentucky. A 6 seed? That seems a little rash lol.

    The guy faked a wife. I think it’s pretty clear he doesn’t have much going for him in the real world.

    Rules say after 30 years you don’t have to mention Chaminade. That was in my time Mossy stop it. This game is actually much worse than the UMBC game.

    I did too of course but people don’t let facts get in their way when spouting out absolute drivel.

    Didn’t even know about Chaminade.

    This is much worse than UMBC? Really? Not only did you pull off something that had never been done, but you managed to make the 16 look like the 1. I wonder how many people glanced at the score and thought it were the opposite result.Laughing

    Not reading all of this but to sum up the original question, no losing in an early season game is in no way worse than losing any game in the tournament. When you lose that game the season is over, this is an easy teaching moment for someone who can actually coach. Unfortunately Kentucky has Cal.

    Bc if the professionals in Vegas deem uk to be the betting favorite, anyone would be stupid to bet on the underdog unless they were either getting the points or a + money line.

    Guess avatar bets aren’t worth money Though.
