Could losing to Georgia signal no Final Four berth?

Chris Barnes pulls down a rebound between two Wildcats to help the Bulldogs to their ninth straight win. (AP)

Found this stat pretty interesting.  In UK’s 13 Final Four years, they have lost a combined 22 SEC games, or more accurately against current SEC teams.  But that should be no surprise that Kentucky’s best teams dominated it’s opponents.  But, what I found very odd, and discouraging, is that Kentucky has NEVER lost to Georgia during a Final Four season.  NEVER.  They have lost to Georgia 25 times total, but never during a Final Four season.   

Georgia: 24-0 (100%)
LSU: 14-1 (93%)
Mississippi State: 14-1 (93%)
Vanderbilt: 23-2 (92%)
Florida: 20-2 (91%)
Arkansas: 8-1 (89%)
Alabama: 19-3 (86%)
Mississippi: 11-2 (85%)
Tennessee: 24-5 (83%)
Auburn: 15-3 (83%)
South Carolina: 9-2 (82%)

Does this mean anything.  Duh.  No.  But, if the Cats are unable to make it to a Final Four, I have just given you a built in excuse, rather than blame Cal, Knight, or Jones.  You can blame Trey Thompkins.

    2-What the hell do you have? You guys give BTI so much crap but at least he puts time into finding something more than the usual inane recruiting of 16 year kids to talk about. What was the last interesting tidbit you discovered, Sportsfan?

    Also keep in mind that we have never made the final four following a season in which five players were selected in the first round of the NBA draft. Where`s my medication?

    If we don’t “buy in” to help defense, we will not reach the final four. Period.

    I agree about help defense. Past two games have had some really sloppy defense switching off screens and trying to double team. Luckily the level of competition sucked and we didn’t get burned.

    Cmon BTI….. Looks like you ran outta stuff to say and now are trying to stir up some attention! We have non-UK people to do that already, don’t need you! What’s the next post gonna be? How bout “It only snowed 5 inches during the seasons we won the championship….so now if we don’t win we can blame Global Warming!” douche

    Mining large amounts of data for non-obvious correlations is a lucrative career, BTI. If you ever want to get out of the blogging and production businesses.

    You guys back off. You’re looking like a bunch of douchebags for trying to be negative on Bryan’s posts.

    It’s just information, stuff that anyone of you would throw out over beers or at the barber shop, regardless of how uppity you pretend to be with your fandom.

    So stop being a bunch of retards. You really do look like clowns.

    I love this team but after watching Pitt and Cuse bang inside last night along with some of the other team, I just don’t see a final four in their future. You never know though…

    this team goin to a final 4 is a joke. i love them,but we don’t have a front court. they’ll be in foul trouble quick against anyone with a good front court.

    If same officials for the Uga game show up for the Bama game tonight – Cats might be in for a long night. Uga is a potential tourney team, Bama doesn’t appear to be so far. These road SEC games are brutal, you just never know how the officials will call it. Another game where the Cats get 10 more fouls called on them, and the other team shoots 34 FT’s…don’t wanna think about it…

    We’ve also never been to a FF in a year where the frosh scoring record was broken twice.

    Never been in a year when Joe B and Denny were on the radio.

    Never been in a year where the sum of the individual digits of that year was 4.

    Never been in a year when CRP (hey, that almost looks like crap!) was coaching the tardinals.

    Add we’ve lost to worse teams than this year’s GA in FF years.

    It’s all meaningless (as BTI points out).

    Me… I’m still pissed about Enes.

    For BTI, I will blame our team and coach, since he hate them dearly. And us, the fans.

    agree with 21 about the BTI numbers and statistics. seems to be his new thing. he must waste a lot of time researching these meaningless statistics. each game is played out on the court each time. emotions factor in…offdays factor in…and the teams are not analyzing numbers. BTI sucks…but only now in a more annoying way.

    Mr BTI what you just said was one of the most insanely idiotic things i have ever heard, at no point in your rambling incoherent response were you ever close to anything that could be considered a rational thought. Everyone on this site is now dumber for having to listen to it, i award you no points, an may god have mercy on your soul.

    36 – Mine wasn’t an insult, it really is a lucrative career. A lot of times, like this case, it is purely coincidental. But in some cases, like pharmaceutical research, they’d probably throw several million at a find like this.

    Well, Georgia is seldom a good basketball team. They are good this year. I believe during most of our FF seasons Georgia has sucked big time so this post really doesn’t mean anything.

    BTI, I don’t understand the percentages. What am I supposed to do with these numbers? First you butcher the English language, now you’re apparently out to destroy seventh grade math as well.

    I could tolerate his posts on the site.. But it’s the incessant whining about how mean and stupid the readers are. If you’re so much smarter than us ms were so annoying to you take your writings elsewhere. I think KSR would be fine without knowing that UK had never made it to a final four after losing to Georgia. It’s just a random, useless, fact that only serves to bring down fan morale. I LCD KSR and really appreciate every other writer but BTI is just pointless and a real pill.
