    3/1 is too high at this point. The field is 15/1, does that include all the teams not listed? I can’t imagine any team that is not listed there to win it all.

    IU @ 25/1, do I see a new ring in the making? Or net cutting down. Or popcorn box pics. Celebrate good times, come on!

    If everyone stays (sand N2, he’s long gone), we will still be a VERY, VERY young team w/ little or no senior leadership. And we all witnessed how that worked out this year. We will clearly be the most talented team by any measure. But, that does not necessarily translate into NC’s. Let’s not crown ourselves just yet. Let’s enjoy the process, appreciate our team and players, and take it game-by-game. (And LOVE every minute of it.)

    This is off topic but if you all want to troll IU swing over to give some pay back.

    Not sure how often Ms Thompson bets, and not trying to be fastidious, but ‘odds-on’ favorite means even money or less. Just sayin’

    Wiggins signs: 1/1

    lets stop with the predictions….we were picked 3rd and did not make the ncaa have a team that could not make free throws etc etc…have some class let the team start to practice without all the drama

    IU 13th down the list from the favorite – guess Tom & Co. has even more enduring ahead next year. maybe the next edition of popcorn boxes will ease the pain. BTW, anyone think IU makes the cover of Yellow Pages next year?

    8. Exactly, no way anyone in their right mind would put money on uk with those odds. We will be good but not 1/3 odds good without even the season opened yet.

    Who is in the field?? Florida Gulf Coast… The field should be at least 150/1 not 15/1

    And was I the only uk fan watching last year. The nit? What I don’t get I’d how we can have 4 first rounders, Noel, Alex p., Goodwin, and willy, and make the nit. Please tell me what I am not seeing here

    Can’t drink the kool aid on this one…we were supposed to be good this year as well and you see what happened…Cal will have to show that he can coach em.

    We had the #1 class last year and ranked #3 preseason, how that turn out. Let’s not put the cart before the horse. Will this year’s class have better effort and chemistry, I hope so.

    5- I don’t troll much but did notice its pretty hard to do, UL boards if you even hint at anything other than wanting to have sex with Rick pitino and the team it’s deleted and others just await moderation… However trolls here are just allowed to run free maybe they should do something about that?

    #17 – we only had 6 legitimate players (only 1 as good as our 6 starters last year), very poor ft%, no pointguard for a significant part of the season (and a weak pg for the rest of it) and our best player was injured when we were finally “hitting our stride”. Fix any of those things and we’re in the dance making a decent run.

  25. Mike is right
    4:55 pm March 29, 2013 Permalink

    Take a look at the teams advancing, physical, veteran players. last years team was an anomaly. What is more satisfying, watching your team grow and advanced or watching recruiting.i know how i feel. I’m done drinking Cal’s kool Aids.

    3-1 is a terrible bet. Too many variables and we’re still a year away. I wouldn’t bet against them but that’s a silly number. 7 or 8-1 should be the favorite but they know us UK fans will bet them no matter what.

    I think i’m gonna put $100 on FSU just incase they get Wiggins. Obviously they probably still wouldn’t win, but you would get good value.

    I’ll go on record again, there is just no justifiable comparison between this year’s team and next year’s team. We will be cutting down the nets in April of next year. Neither Jabari Parker at Duke nor anyone else will put a stop to it. Personally, I hope that we begin the season outside the top 25 with everyone ignoring us. That will be a great thing to further motivate the team. However, we all know that that is not going to happen, so its pointless to worry about these predictions.

  29. Hey
    5:21 pm March 29, 2013 Permalink

    Let me get thus straight. Cal won a national title with the same very type of team UK will have coming in next year, but yet MIKE lovers look for reasons to doubt. You sir, are the epitome of asinine.

    28- yea I’m pretty sure we won’t be outside the top 25… Know what your sayin though but no way

    I mean be realistic people. I’m a uk fan but those odds are insane. If wiggins goes to unc then what. Please don’t bet right now anyone

    ==== Well maam, You know we were “picked” in the top three at the start of the past season ……. how did that work out for us ? Not too skippy !

    “IF” ….. any of the dog-ass threesome of Willhe Callhim Frank-n-Stein, Alex Iwearadress, or Archie Ican’twin return they will act as a detriment (re: cancer) to the most promising group Calamari has ever pursuaded $$$ to come here !!!

    Cauley Clown is especially invited to find another home …… Wildcat Lodge only accommodates players that understand the “TEAM” designation ……… they play for BBN ….. I truly wish there were “no names on the back of the jerseys !!!!

    Wildcat fans know ALL ABOUT their team !

    Cal needs to tighten the screws on EVERYBODY (including his cravatless SELF) …… there wasn’t much accountability this past season ……. kinda reminds me
    of what’s gone on in Washington, D.C. !!!!

    You are only as good as you are …. I was angered by the lack of effort (heart) on this season’s BLUE ….. I have only HOPE that things C H A N G E next season ….. our program was NOT COMMONWEALTH QUALITY this year !

    Tom Crean, here, promoting, espousing even, the probable 2013-2014 “on the cover of a box of” Wheaties Team.

    We’ll at least win at home.

    Like YOU son, eating Wheaties.

    You’ll be pre-season Number 1 for weeks; and eating your Wheaties will make Number 2 EZ.

    Season in the toilet: flushed.

    I need to send out a tweet.

    Gotta go: thanks Wheaties.

    It’s was down year… Unfortunately with the way we recruit this may happen every couple of years. That doesn’t mean next year we will be like this years team! Why all the negativity? It’s an up year for high school bball! They recruits we have seen a little more mature…. Hopefully it’s an up year and the coach well! Down year in highschool, down year in college, then it will be a down year in the NBA draft… But did u forget we just lost our players an most of them as lotto picks? This is going to happen often so get use to it. But you should be smart enough to know that good talent give you the best odds. Duh! So if ur a UK fan in ashamed of how pessimistic and ignorant about ur team…. We will be great next year! #GobigBlue

    ==== All I do is call it like I see it ……. pure and simple … this year we SUCKED !

    Next year ? Know this ……. should Wiggins decide to come to Wildcatville ………… we will be under INVESTIGATION like no other team has ever seen !!!!

    And one of the leading causes will be Cal’s CLOSE association with WORLDWIDE WES !!!!

    The writings on the wall and OL’ PIX showed it to you first ….. right here on KSN ….

    Matt, Drew, and Tyler ……. get my check ready ….. good writers and fortune tellers are hard to find !
