I’m hungry for some pork roast

Relive the Valentine’s Day massacre where Meeks goes off for 45 points last February complete with really annoying and creepy music:

Let’s set aside for a second the fact the Kentucky is far and away the better team taking the court today. We have a talent, size, and speed advantage over the Razorbacks and when the team learns to put mediocre teams away for good in the second half, I’ll worry a lot less about games like today.  Three more reasons Kentucky will beat Arkansas today:

1. Home Court advantage: Rupp is always a tough place for opposing teams, but for Arkansas the road atmosphere is an even bigger factor. The Razorbacks are in the middle of a 14 game road losing streak, dating back to a January 26, 2008 road win over LSU. I’m not sure Rupp would be the most likely place to break that streak.

2. Rebounding: Even if Arkansas can take UK out of their offensive rhythm, the Razorbacks are a terrible rebounding team. Their size disadvantage against the Wildcats shouldn’t help their cause and they’re 0-9 when being outrebounded this season.

3. Fatigue: Because of the television deal with ESPN, the Razorbacks have 3 weeks this season with Thursday/Saturday games. Forty-eight hours to prepare for a game is a brutal task for any team, especially one with such a depleted roster as John Pelphrey has.

My opinion: Cats learn to put them away earlier today and finish on top 89-70. The spread for today’s game is -16, and I actually see them beating it in convincing fashion. Use the comments section for your own predictions.

I have no words to describe this video except that I have soft spot for Arkansas fans. Maybe it’s because my 5th grade crush was a fan and we fell in love through our witty bantering about which team would win the annual game. Around the 1:40 mark, one of them begins a game summary that might be one of the more eloquent things I have ever heard. “Up and down the court, up and down the court.”
