Point-Counterpoint: I think my argument yesterday about UK avoiding to schedule WKU in the past was probably twisted wrongly more than any stupid rant I have ever put on this site. First things first, I would NEVER think UK needs to play Western in Bowling Green. I said they should play one year in Lexington, then the next in either Nashville or Louisville. Now, the argument given most often was the a game with WKU would be a “lose-lose” because if you win the game, you’re supposed to, and if you lose the game, its a big upset. But, I would contend that playing ANY mid-major has that same “lose-lose” stigma to it. So, why not play a “lose-lose” game against an in-state rival who would help your RPI. And I am not too arrogant in my UK fanhood to say that WKU has been better than UK the last two seasons. But, my biggest contention is if Coach Calipari truly follows through with his claim of a tougher schedule with no 10 wins or less teams, then Western would be an obvious choice. Since 1993, UK has played Western ONCE (2001). In that same time, they have played:
Eastern Kentucky: 6 times
Morehead St.: 5 times
Georgetown College: 1 time
Kentucky St.: 1 time
Kentucky Wesleyan: 1 time
Northern Kentucky: 1 time
What do these teams have in common? They were no competition for the Cats. Western would be. But like I said, if Calipari goes through with his promise of a better schedule (which I think he will), then I think WKU would be on the schedule sometime in the near future.
The UK softball team dropped its first game in the NCAA Tournament, falling 6-2 to BYU. Luckily it’s double-elimination, so now UK must win 4 straight to advance. First up is Canisius today.
Hey, a guy named Blount got arrested for smoking pot. And where did this guy go to school? Anybody? Anybody? Thats right, Cincinnati!!! Has there EVER been a good, quality citizen come out of the UC basketball program?
Man is claiming police brutality at the Kentucky Derby. And luck for us there is a video and you can decide. And unlucky for him, there is a video, because even the people standing around tell him he was being a moron.
This video makes me think I could be a minor league pitcher.
