    Then you haven’t been paying much attention. Williamson is special, and Nwora will only continue to get better. Igiehon, Enoch, and Williams will make a great frontcourt with Withers (who apparently killed it at yesterday’s scrimmage) will see some minutes. We’re long, athletic, and have multiple shooters. There’s a reason why we’re top 10 in almost every poll. I’m sure you know more though..Laughing

    UKs frontcourt looks pretty average. Slow white guy that shoots 3’s, Nick Richards who has concrete hands, and EJ Montgomery who hasn’t shown me anything from last year that he’s worthy of his rivals ranking. Pretty mediocre imo. Your backcourt will be decent though, Hagans needs to learn how to shoot though.

    Pre-season Polls are nothing better than guesses.

    Enoch.... at transfer from UCONN that can get some boards and take up some space, not a lot to offer offensively 5 pts, 9 rebs v UK last year
    Williams... You better hope he can do more than those fat 2 points and 6 boards vs UK last year.
    Igiehon.... very raw offensively. You probably don't want him shooting
    jumpers.
    Nwora- U6's one man show.
    "Fresh" Kimble.... Who?Laughing
    Perry? Laughing He gonna run his mouth at Hagans again?
    Sutton.... ?
    Fore?? Laughing
    McMahon? RollLaughHe'd be better off at NKU.

    You just listed our second and third stringers. Enoch and Igiehon are gonna punish your frontcourt lol. You’ve got a couple string beans with no post moves. Good luck. You’re gonna need it. Cards by 8+

    I love how you fail to mention Williamson

    Our starters will be

    Perry
    Williamson
    Nwora
    Sutton/Williams
    Enoch


    Experienced, talented, athletic team. I know your blue tinted glasses prevent you from saying that we’re gonna be good, but we are. This isn’t Rafters JC.. you can be objective without sounding like a complete troll.

    No he really can’t. He probably has full body paint, a blue wig, and flashing blue led tinted glasses on every time he gets on this board

    Pull for Memphis against most opponents.
    2008 Regional Final when Texas played them I would have been pissed if it was any other team.

    You don't trust the preseason polls? Who's your top 25? Only question mark I have with UL is point guard play. The wings and bigs look really, really solid.

    He also added Fore who isn’t even on our team this year. o_O

    With a question mark on Sutton, who averaged 10 & 7 last year in the toughest conference in cbb.

    Dude knows his shit..

    Not a chance. You ran with this same spew last year, as U6 fans do pretty much every year.

    ...shows how much I'm actually 'worried' Laughing about U6.

    You're still Nwora and a bunch of role players as far as I'm concerned.
    CATS win again.

    I'll buy into the UL offensive hype. But they have yet to prove they can play defense.

    Della, along with about half of Vol Nation, are currently on their way to the Golden Gate Bridge after Georgia State took it to them on Saturday

    Kind of funny how Tennessee hasn't had a 10-win season this decade, yet Duke and Kentucky both have.

    Hypocrite much, I was responding to your time (100+ years) based nonsense. Time framing is relative. The fact that Adolf Rupp and Joe B Hall coached at UK and were successful at UK has no bearing on the present. The fact that Coach Barnes coaches at UT now and is kicking UK's ass is relevant.

    So, you have now learned how time framing is a loser's argument when citing irrelevant info and how it is a winner's argument when citing relevant info. You're welcome.:)

    ...I don't cut out convenient sections of time.... I use the WHOLE thing. YOU, do the opposite to fit your agenda. UT had another piece of history when they did well against UK when Ernie & Bernie played.

    The end result remains...UT is 71-154 against UK.

    You are doubling down on dumb and it is a bad look for you. I have not used Ernie and Bernie as an argument regarding UT's upper hand against UK in the present. I don't I have ever mentioned Ernie and Bernie period. They are ancient history.

    My "agenda" is in the here and now. I urge you to leave the past behind and join me here.:)

    Cal is 13-8 against the Vols. Although I will say that is a much better percentage than the all time but kicking so I will give you credit for that! Winking

    The sample size of five whole games? Probably the best stretch Tennessee has ever had against Kentucky. “Pats on the back”

    JC you have made one dumb argument and then doubled down on it. You shouldn't be throwing the word ignorance around so loosely.

    I actually went to the UT/GaST. Of course, I penciled it in as a win. However, that is the way the ball deflates. Unlike UK's visit to Knoxville, GaSt. played their asses off and they deserved to win.

    I generally don't discuss CFB here and especially with a UK fan. It would be poor sportsmanship on my part. However since you brought it up, I think UT kicks UK's ass again this year in CFB.:D

    I truthfully don’t know what it is. But I’m happy for you guys regardless. Tennessee fans need all they can get right now. If a .500 record against UK in basketball in 4 years is something to hold on to, by all means, slam away! SmokinSmile
