    I would be willing to bet Kentucky makes it further than Louisville in the tournament

    He’d on his hands and knees praying for the ncaa to arbitrarily take it away. But man it would be hilarious. You can tell he’s really but hurt no one is picking Kentucky to win it this year.

    Don't do it Jimbo, UL will likely be a 2 seed and UK a 4 meaning your odds of winning this bet aren't particularly good.

    Really? Because Vegas disagrees. U of L has better odds to win it than UK. Those are just facts.

    Dude, Kentucky does not look championship caliber. I’m sorry, y’all just don’t have the team this year. Maybe next. We look like the best team in the nation when we want to play hard. Thats not just me saying that but plenty of sports pundits and analysts. Though I get you and JCs disdain for Louisville manipulates your bias.

    And no basketball or school related avatar. Those are boring. It needs to be something interesting, funny and/or controversial.

    I disagree. You beat us head to head barely in over time on your home court, but I’d say we’d beat you 6/10 times on a neutral court. However both of our teams are guilty of playing some shitty ball.

    yea we hear that every yearRollLaugh

    the playing shitty ball is why neither team has a great chance
    UK has more talent and by some stroke of luck could get hot in the NCAAT , but i doubt it

    I just think we will have a better tourney run. I know you and jc love to bring up arbitrary shit from the past when discussing THIS year, lol. However, your team just doesn’t scare anyone. No real standout player, just a bunch of role players who can’t really shoot 3s. The talent level is practically the same.

    You conveniently mention who has beaten Kentucky yet while listing MSU you say they beat Seton Hall....no mention of who they lost to. Laughing Along with cherry picking those Big 10 wins, why not list all the losses? I could go cherry pick wins against the Big 10 to make the opposite point of the one you're trying to make.

    Not cherry picking.......You said the B10 isn't that good. I showed you who they have beaten. Why the **** would I post who they lost too? Bottom line is, the Big 10 has a lot of very good, non-conference wins. Gonzaga, FSU, UK, Seton Hall, Creighton, Villanova, etc...

    In terms of a team's defensive efficiency for the season? Yes, absolutely. Why would any games be weighted more heavily for that?

    You have to be trolling? Right? I mean if you say "X" is no good, do you expect my rebuttal to be who "X" has lost to? Man I hope you are trolling.

    let me get this right

    you just said the talent level is about the same yet no one is scared of UK
    so i am assuming you are also saying that UL does not scare anyone (i agree)

    we hear the same old drivel from UL fans every year
    yes the odds are that even a blind squirrel finds a nut eventually
    i highly doubt it happens this year

    Dude Kentucky isn’t that good I’m sorry my opinion offends you. We’re not that great either when we play soft and have key players out.

    OK, I'll play along without listing losses for comparison.

    Well, lets see.....

    Evansville beat UK at UK

    Pretty sure that game as not computer simulated.

    Evansville is pretty solid.

    your team almost always play soft
    your guards are not big enough or quick enough to stop drives
    Nwora should play about 20 minutes a game, get him out before he goes all "hero ball"
    Enoch is the only player on your team i would take on this UK team

    i hate to hurt your feelings but ul is a middle of the road team
    ul has two good wins Duke and Michigan, they have lost to every other good team they have played including UK

    Kentucky plays soft. Terrible losses to Evansville and Utah and South Carolina. Only good wins against us and a mediocre Michigan state team.

    no doubt early in the year this team played bad
    that can not be said now
    Richards and Quickly are in the running for SEC player of the year

    i have not seen any real improvement in ul

    I don't consider it anything. The geeks that make the analytics consider it a "quad 1" win.
