Friday Night Post Brought to You By A UNC #BEATEMDOWN (hopefully)


Remember last time we beat North Carolina?  Good times, good times.

Good evening.  And what a glorious evening it is.  A night of solid basketball has prepared us for the gem of the regular season – Kentucky versus North Carolina.  Tickets for this game have been sparse since they became available.  The level of talent is beyond belief.  America is watching, waiting.  I can’t wait, and I’m sure you can’t either.  It’s only early December, but screw it…I want my Christmas gift now.  And that gift is a #BEATEMDOWN on UNC, courtesy of the Wildcats.  In no way am I predicting a beat down, but here’s to hoping we all get what we want this year.  But if not, it’s merely a stepping stone in what will still be a fantastic season.

On to the day’s news…


North Carolina owns the all-time series against UK, 22-12.  WTF.  I cannot and will not stand for this.  We split last year’s matchups, but let’s go ahead and chip away at their lead tomorrow afternoon.  Rasheed Wallace is in town.  Let’s make his trip worthwhile and send his alma mater home with an L.

– Doron Lamb told the media that UK is the better team and will win the game.  Represent.  You know you guys were all thinking it.  (PLEASE don’t use this as corkboard material, Tarheels!).  “I think we’re more talented offensively and defensively.”

– So many pro scouts and NBA representatives are in Lexington, folks.  It’s crazy.  So crazy, in fact, that Lakers owner Jerry Buss’ son, Jesse, was arrested in Lexington last night for alcohol intoxication.  I think we all know who is to blame for this (…coughDrewFranklincough).  That’s what they get for cutting Joe Crawford way back when…

Coach Cal said tomorrow “isn’t a must win game.” He’s absolutely right, but we are still allowed to freak out and act like the world is ending if we lose.  It’s the UK fan way.

– How pumped are you to get your foam three goggles in the student section tomorrow?!  What?  You’re not going?  …Me either

– Want to enjoy your pregame breakfast with a couple Wildcat greats?  Look no further…Ron Mercer and Walter McCarty will be at the Dunkin Donuts on at 333 East Main Street to meet and greet with Kentucky fans from 9:30 a.m to 11 a.m. Derek Anderson is also in town, so maybe he will make a surprise appearance with his old buddies.  DA is a screenwriter and producer now…who knew?

– In football news, Steve Brown will not return to the team.  No word yet on whether his mustache will return.  Rumors are that the ‘stache actually resides on Anthony Davis’ forehead now.  This move has been desired and expected for some time now.  When Minter hit town, it was inevitable.  Good luck wherever your path leads, Steve.

– Florida did not represent the SEC with a win today.  Instead, UF lost to Syracuse 72-68, giving the Big East the 6-2 lead in the BE/SEC Challenge.  Thanks a lot, Gators.  But you still covered thanks to a last second Walker three, so I ain’t mad atcha’.

– The SEC took another loss, moving the challenge record to 6-2 in favor of the Big East after UL and Seton Hall wins to go along with Syracuse.  Louisville made a late come back and beat Vandy by 1 in OT thanks to a Peyton Siva layup with 1.3 seconds left.

– What happened to Washington?  They were supposed to be very good this year but have fallen off the map.  TJ made the right decision, but we knew that.

edit: Rick Pitino just predicted Vandy goes to the Final Four.  No, seriously.  He actually said that.  O_0


That’s it for today folks.  GET PUMPED.  Tomorrow is going to be awesome.  Tarheels vs. Wildcats.  NBA players vs. NBA players.  Polson vs. Beiber.  What more can you ask for?  Lexington is THE place to be tomorrow.  And with that, I bid you adieu.  Flip on your #SEXNetwork coverage.  Dream of victory.  Once you finish your beer/bourbon, that is.  Allow this video to give you happy thoughts.

    If Louisville, though terrible, were able to get a #2 ranking, we were #1, how big of a game would that be? Bigger than UK/UNC?

    Louisville and Vandy both suck. Kevin Stallings is the most mediocre coach in Division I.

    Just finished watching the games and two things;
    1. Florida has to hit threes or they can’t do squat.
    2. Vandy has the worst coach with the most talent I’ve ever seen.
    Stallings should have been fired 5 years ago. Looks like we have to prop up the sec again this year.

    Way to not credit who actually got that information about Jesse Buss confirmed by police and tweeted it out and on Facebook an hour before this post. Way to go Tamara Evans with WDRB News in Louisville.

    Well, I think I can judge them… they are terrible. Vandy – Ezeli has no business in the top 25. Vandy had to literally throw the game away 3 times for UofL to win it too…. If there is one thing I take away it is that UofL simply cannot score and they have not played a good defensive team yet this year. Oh and by the way, if we lost 5 players who come off the bench like UofL I think we would still be fine. Not to mention that have like 19 players on their roster so, % wise, it would be more like us losing 2 or 3 of our worst players.

    #19..So what is new with SEC bb..It’s about like Kentucky playing fb in the SEC…Were are the only admin that dosen’t give a squat about FOOTBALL and the rest of the league dosen’t give a squat about BASKETBALL….Sure they are as ashamed of Kentucky football being in the SEC as we are with them…Probably more so…..

    29) You nailed it. It’s actually pathetic that we can go on the road and play at a place like Georgia or Auburn (in basketball) and have half the stands filled with uk fans. You would never see that in any other major confernece. I think many schools in the SEC would just drop basketball if they could.

    How obvious was it that I was pulling for Vandy tonight? I did everything but do a Vandy cheer during timeouts.

    Seriously, I thought he was going to cry after Siva hit that shot.

    36) From searching around Twitter it appears that the story is possibly related to recruitment of current player, Anthony Davis. Hate Forde. Hope this is all BS.

    Have you heard me yet. I throw up Pat Forde stories in every comment section to get a #rise out of UK fans. My conversations have nothing to do with the rest of the posts, just here to represent the ville. Continue.

  44. Think about it
    1:08 am December 3, 2011 Permalink

    23, 30. Sounds like something a troll came up with to try and bring down UK spirits on such a big weekend. Its not like Forde is the only one in the world who has anti UK sources. If something big were coming out, it wouldn’t have taken months to hear about it, which is how long Forde has been “rumored” to be coming out with this story. Trust me, Cal isn’t an idiot. He realizes that if he messes up, 40 different people will find out about it. Its just getting silly at this point

    RUPP ARENA could win the game for us alone tomorrow if it wasn’t such a cheesy arena. What I mean is the ads are hideous!! We’ll be watching two powerhouses tomorrow and the scorer’s table will be scrolling “Auto Zone” and “Allstate” ads that are about 50 feet long and 3 feet tall!!! Also the Kroger logo’s on the goal supports are lame. We need to turn Rupp into a feared palace, not a minor league baseball stadium!!

Forde is irrelevant if he can’t trash UK and blow UL, that’s why he got a new job. Hopefully he will make a mistake and be fired for not fact checking….something he is known to do! UK by 12-14 today! #WeAreUK #FordeIsaBitch

    pay no attention to my boy. He has always been an attention-whore. He can’t help himself. He can’t stand the fact that his daddy got caught with his pants down around his ankles in that restaurant. It also bothers him that UK fans aren’t just heartbroken that Ricky hasn’t won a title since coming to UL. He’s not a bad kid, just mis-understood. Please don’t say bad things about him, he gets his lil feelins hurt so easily.
