Bring Bobby Mo to Lexington

morris-rupp

Kentucky’s 2013 non-conference basketball schedule is a couple games away from being complete. The marquee games — Michigan State, Louisville, North Carolina and Baylor — have been signed and sealed for months now and only the games against mid-major/not-so-good opponents remain.

So who will it be?

Well, Boise State is pushing hard to get a game against the Wildcats and there have been discussions between the two schools to play a game in Rupp Arena next season with no return game in Idaho. I see no reason for Kentucky to turn down Boise’s persistent plea to get whooped in Lexington, especially when you consider the school’s athletic director, Mark Coyle, was the deputy director of athletics at UK in 2010 and 2011. Not to mention, Boise State played a huge role in pushing Kentucky off the bubble last season; the Broncos return its top six scorers; and Boise State will potentially be a preseason Top 25 team. Scheduling the Broncos seems like a great move to me, but there’s one team I really want to see in Rupp Arena this November/December:

Bring Robert “Bobby Mo” Morris to Lexington.

It’s a no-brainer. It’s the right thing to do. It’s the only thing to do.

The 2013-14 UK Basketball Revenge Tour won’t be complete without a win over Robert Morris. Baylor, Louisville and the SEC will get theirs, but Robert Morris, the team that ended Kentucky’s season, appears to be off the hook.

But that can change with a simple phone call to Moon Township. The Colonials would jump at the opportunity to play on college basketball’s grandest stage and Big Blue Nation needs closure from the disappointing first round NIT loss. It’s the least UK can do for the man who gave us the dollar sign, a signature on the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution, the groundwork for our financial system, and one of the most embarrassing losses Kentucky basketball has ever seen.

Forget the Lipscombs, Samfords and Marshalls.

Throw out the Lafayettes, LIU-Brooklyns and any school with one of the four cardinal directions in its name.

Schedule Bobby Mo.

    Really? Then we come off as thin-skinned bullies if (okay “when”) we win, and if we lose…

    Maybe we should rush the court when we beat Tennessee next year. Y’know, ’cause revenge or something.

    This only way we don’t look like d-bags is if we continue scheduling them in the future. As much as I would like to see the Cats blow out RM in Rupp, it’s a bad publicity move unless it’s a continuing saga

    Shouldn’t Notre Dame be on there? I thought we were playing them at Rupp this year.

    We ought to start a home-and-home with Ohio State or Cincinnati.

    Bringing in Boise St seems a no brainer. They’d be much better than some of the guys we normally play in late November or December. But did RM ask to schedule us? The offer should not come from UK but them

    No, let Bobby Mo have their win. We can take our revenge out on others, and no need to bully the little guy.

    KSR, should do an all~time Kentucky freshman team!!!! That would be cool

    What a stupid idea! We will gain nothing from playing this team, just a waste of a game we could actually be playing competition bettering ourselves for March. Did we not learn anything from George W going to war for the sole purpose of axing Saddam because he embarresed his daddy who couldn’t finish the job?

    Suck it up, forget about it and focus on the future.

    The main reason I want to crush Robert Morris is to shut all these Louisville hacks up. I have little to no hard feelings toward Robert Morris, but beating them would be proving a point: this year is different. (Because apparently 3 great years aren’t enough to show that last year was a fluke)

    Bobby Morris would get their a$$ handed to them it wouldn’t even be fair… I love it, lets make it happen. Upset city becomes hurtin city.

    No way should we schedule RM. Even tho the beat us last year there is no way they deserve the beating we would lay on them. Kentucky need to just man up and say “Well Done, Robert Morris” and move on. As mentioned earlier, we come off as looking like a bully and gain nothing. Sounds like something Louisville would do, not Kentucky. We are better than that.

    I sooooo wish we could play the Indiana Loosiers. I’d take next year’s team anytime, anywhere

    How about an in-state school or two? NKU is division 1 now, bring them down.

    Do we know who will be our Big 12 game or will Baylor be our Big 12/SEC Challenge game?

    I don’t care about seeing Robert Morris. We don’t have to get revenge against them. #16, you’re correct. We should being playing IU. One of the all time great basketball rivalries. However, if we did put them back on the schedule, it would look like we were just scared of them last year, which I guess if we’re being honest, we were.

    Don’t give two $hits about “Bobby” Morris…they beat UK last year and I’m fine with that. UK got what they deserved…should have came ready to play and not “under estimate” them…as I’ve heard happened (J. Mays)?

    Bring teams to Rupp that will actually help this team win in March and April…no cupcakes like this past year. Softest team in a long time for UK and their schedule was a big part of that. Minus a few games (Duke, UofL, maybe Baylor) everyone else they played didn’t help for March and April.

    Boise St…sure, why not. They return a veteran team and will make the NCAAs next year. Let them come to Rupp without a return game. It’s a win-win for UK. They won’t lose the game so I don’t see why not.

    Forget Robert Morris, I want them to play Florida Gulf Coast

    Revenge, retaliation, payback whatever you want to call it, it’s not Robert Morris’, Louisville, Baylor or whoever else beat us fault that UK underachieved. Why Robert Morris? They deserved to win that game and they did let it go.

    I say schedule Boise St. If they want to challenge the biggest dude in the room, I say, let the Cats take ’em outside and show’em what being the all-time winningest program is all about!! Maybe we could also get a football game goin’??

    I thought it said ‘Bring Bobby Knight to Lexington’ at a quick glance. Almost fell out of my chair…

    Robert Morris can make the NCAA tournament next year – as the 16 seed we face.
