    Today I am wearing my 2012 National Championship shirt for the last time while Kentucky is still the defending National Champions…but hopefully 1 year from today I will be buying my 2014 National Championship shirt after work! On a serious note, there is a ton of people living in third world countries in need of clothes…I hope Louisville doesn’t let them down so they can all get their limited edition 2013 Louisville National Championship shirts! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vO5hYhLI7Fc

    I’m really not going to be able to listen today if we talk about UofL much. I can’t turn on any sports-related media without seeing UofL. Can’t handle it anymore. Not hating the show, just can’t listen to it anymore if we talk about it much today.

    The ONLY game that I am going to watch from start to finish today is the Manchester Darby between United and City on ESPN at 2:30pm ET. I will only watch the NCAA Championship game if I know Michigan will win. Once I know UL is going to win, I am turning the game off.

    And speaking on rivalries, ask a United or City fan if he or she would ever fathom cheering for the other team. You are more likely to get them to shoot their mother (I needed something extreme) or quit drinking beer. Lol

    GO BLUE!

    Just posted this so not sure why it didn’t get posted but:

    To the Wichita St coach’s defense, Tim Henderson was 4 for 17 from 3 for the season. I wouldn’t exactly call that a 3 pt threat. Their game plan was pack in the lane and force UofL to hit a lot of 3′s.

    Henderson changed the momentum, but if they would have gameplanned for Luke H they would’ve won. Only guy you needed to gaurd closely on the 3 pt line.

  35. JackB
    10:15 am April 8, 2013 Permalink

    Kevin Ware is temporarily the Tim Tebow. Non-Florida fans, especially in the SEC, hated Tebow when he was at Florida – not because of anything Tebow did – but because ESPN wouldn’t shut up about him. Now – everyone won’t shut up about Ware. It wasn’t Tebow’s fault then and it isn’t Ware’s fault now. But I’m sick of seeing and hearing about him.

    Matt, Saturday night there was alot of incidents of gun shots, and general stupid stuff related to UL’s win. Coincidently, all of the vandalism and drunken stupidity on campus at UL stayed out of the news. That of course is due to that Turtle necked dictator….Tom Jong Un

    Matt I’m willing to make any kind of prop or publicity bet you can think of. Publicly shaving my head, drinking a glass of honey mustard, announcing my stupidity level on the air while taking pies in the face… Anything… Cause Louisville will not win this game by double digits. I’ll even say they won’t win period. The Kevin ware injury really killed their guard depth and limits their ability to play that non stop intense defense.

    Michigan’s your 2013 champ, disagree then let’make it interesting.

    To all of Dirty Bird Nation. Enjoy this last game of the season while it lasts. Y’all have had a hell of a season and if you do win tonight, don’t get too upset when all the national focus switches back to Lexington by Wednesday bc we are getting Wiggins and we are going to win it all next year! Sorry sausage links, but 32 and 0 is so 37 years ago, it’s coming to end next season. So have fun tonight UofL fans. May your line beards be extra thin, your clothes extra baggy and your annoying hashtags somewhat trendy. Be sure to give Peyton Siva’s dad a hug and maybe one of those ugly t-shirt uniforms, so the rest of the nation doesn’t have to see that nasty crust at the bottom of his pits. Be sure to come up with some new trash talk that is actually original in the offseason. Because come next season…CAYTS ON THE WAR PATH! The Blue ring circus will be taking the nation by storm featuring! GO BIG BLUE!

    Isn’t there a silver lining here if UL wins the championship in that we will have a UK championship followed by a UL championship which could then open up talk for the UK-UL rivalry over taking UNC-Duke for best rivalry in the nation?

    Matt, I’m with you man on hedging bets against things you want to happen; hence the reason I picked Louisville in my bracket pool. But I can’t believe how many Kentucky fans I know that have been rooting for Louisville in this tournament. I was watching the game with my parents the other night, both UK grads, and was stunned when they started cheering for Louisville. I bet it’s 75-25 pro-Louisville from the UK fans I know.



  81. Adam
    10:30 am April 8, 2013 Permalink

    Louisville is not blowing them out. Burke is a terrific ball handler and is able to keep the ball on a string even when taking contact. with that said Siva and Smith will get into foul trouble early because Burke will be able to draw those fouls. Rick will have to back the press off and Michigan will not tuen the ball over in the half court. Louisville is great at scoring in transition but struggles in the half court. Michigan will win this game.

    As with every UL game, the officiating will dictate the outcome…they will foul on virtually every possession…the question is how willing the refs are to call them, even if it means the game goes well past midnight

    If you read the CJ on Sunday, there was a front page story about ‘Police reported very few incidents’ in celebration of the Final Four victory. if you then followed the story to page A10, in the last paragraph, they mentioned 6 arrests and one shooting.
    I bet Jurich has somebody fired for mentioning that at all.

    Sorry, we CANNOT call this the best Rivalry if we’re all cheering for each other. Then it’s not a rivalry anymore. There is much more hate between UNC and DUKE so they still hold the Best Rivalry title.

    This morning, Josh Elliott on Good Morning America said it was a great day in the Bluegrass state because Louisville was in the championship game. I’m thinking he just alienated two fan bases.

  101. For all you wanting this rivalry to become bigger than UNC/Duke, if it happens, it happens. But there ain’t NO way, NO how, that you’re talking me into rooting for UL tonight. If they win, the increased pub for the rivalry will be a silver lining, I guess, but all I can say is “WOLVERIIIIIIIIIINES!!!”

    While watching the Louisville/Wichita State game, my family (who say they are Kentucky fans) was pulling for Louisville. Claiming that Louisville winning the title would be good for our state. Sitting there listening to “members” of BBN cheering for Louisville made me sick. They couldn’t understand why I refused to root for UofL. I explained to them that cheering for Louisville would make me feel as if I were some how cheating on UK. There’s just some things in life you don’t cheat on, ever: God, your girl, and UK!

    150- well said! You hit it on the nose. I didn’t grow up in Kentucky, but it only took me an hour on campus to realize how much I/we hate Louisville. All day this past Saturday, I was ticked off that I did not still have the very first UK shirt I ever owned. I bought it from some guy walking around campus after I moved in. It didn’t even say “kentucky” or “wildcats” on it…that was the best part. In giant, 4″ red letters it just said: “F Louisville.” I don’t have to tell you that there were 3 other letters behind the F. Best shirt I ever owned and completely mad that I lost it sometime in last couple years. I actually picked UofL to win it all in a free competition through a casino…and if they win I might take home between 1 and 10K tonight…and I’m still rooting for Michigan!
