On this gloomy Monday, surely all of us are searching for something to perk up our spirits or brighten our mood. Well, for maybe the first time ever, John Clay is doing just that for us. He made a whole list up (all by himself!) of NCAA tournament storylines for Cat fans to sink their teeth into while the Big Blue plods through the NIT. Of course, just to make sure we don’t go getting too excited, he spends half the column twisting the knife by talking about the Cards getting a one-seed and Tubby sneaking into the tournament, so don’t go knighting Clay just yet.
Everyone else can get excited about Morehead State and Western, and even Travis Ford if you want. Me? I’ll be taking Clay’s advice and rooting on Herb Sendek. Not because of the Kentucky ties. Because he looks like the evil blackjack dealer in Vegas Vacation, and I love that movie.
