If its midnight and its Vegas, it is time for Kentucky basketball! Tonight the Wildcats take on the Wildcats, in a game that brings together the greatness of the Bluegrass with the nothingness of the middle of Kansas. I have been to Kansas State on one occasion, and the trip was highlighted with a visit to a Frat party, where a guy told me, “here is what you need to know about Kansas State in four words: “It really sucks.” Obviously beyond a stellar education then, Kansas State has a lot going for it, including a basketball coach that you expect to sell you a watch on the street. Frank Martin inherited his team after the Bobby Huggins drive-by and now with Michael Beasley and Bill Walker gone, we get this game tonight.
I could see this going a lot of different ways, but I believe the Cats have more talent and are ready to have a coming-out party on ESPNU of all places. I will take the Cats by 8, 75-67. What say you? Use the comments to make your predictions and chat about the game in the wee hours of the night.
Oh yes, and Kige says Happy Holidays!
