I miss the old Mondays

DA60079

Remember when Mondays were full of good news for Kentucky basketball?  Man, those days were so pleasant, and a lot easier on those of us running UK sports websites.

It used to be the case we’d find out which Wildcat won SEC Player of the Week and Freshman of the Week honors at noon, followed by where Kentucky ranked in the AP top 10.  There was no talk of bubbles, unless we were debating which champagne we were going to crack open at the SEC and NCAA tournaments.

But Mondays are different this year.

On this Monday, I sadly report that Kentucky is unranked, yet again, in the AP and USA Today Coaches college basketball polls.  It’s the third consecutive week Kentucky failed to reach the top 25 after sneaking in for a brief appearance at No. 25 in week 15.

The Wildcats were also snubbed from the SEC Freshman of the Week honors for only the second time in seven weeks.

But there is good news on the horizon: Kentucky will beat Georgia!  Right?

    I remember last year Mondays differently that you Drew. I remember last year Mondays with the complainers complaining about TJ’s heart (or pinkie) or Teague’s attitude, Cal not playing the bench enough, the complainers complaining about MGK’s jumper in clutch time, or Lamh not getting back on D fast enough.

    My point – complainers will complain. At least this year they have a legitimate concern.

    UK better beat Georgia if they have any plans of playing in the NCAA, if not they can do something else on selection Sunday vice watching tv at Cal’s.

    With the turnover of star players every year – a year like this is certain to happen occasionally. Maybe Shabazz is the missing piece – maybe not, but I think it’s safe to say that thesse players (with the exception of Noel) have not performed like Cal and staff thought they would.

    If we don’t make the tourney I would hate for us to play in the NIT. I would much rather us turn down the invite.

    Strange that this site has the swag not to identify with USAtoday openly? (like ONLY down at the end of page)
