Let’s Get Back To CATS BASKETBALL!!!1!




Oh, wait. You mean Kentucky Wildcat Basketball? Then you wouldn’t care about this Deadspin piece about the CFA Iams Cat Championship. Okay, sure.

How about we review what noted Kentucky Basketball fan (and beloved Herald-Leader writer) Jerry Tipton submitted to that SEC Preseason Media Poll Matt posted earlier?

I’m a believer

The SEC asked me to vote on a pre-season all-conference team and predict an order of finish. Here’s the ballot I e-mailed to the conference office last week.

Eastern Division: 1. Kentucky. 2. Tennessee. 3. Florida. 4. Vanderbilt. 5. South Carolina. 6. Georgia.

Comment: Tennessee has plenty of talent, but its losses (Chris Lofton, JaJuan Smith, Duke Crews, Ramar Smith) are significant. And I could be horribly wrong, but Tyler Smith strikes me as a jack of all trades, master of none. More complementary player than lead cow.

Western Division: 1. Ole Miss. 2. Auburn. 3. Alabama. 4. LSU. 5. Mississippi State. 6. Arkansas.

Comment: I like Auburn as a title contender, but not more than Ole Miss.

SEC champion: Kentucky.

Comment: Pass the blue Kool-Aid.

All-SEC team: F Patrick Patterson, Kentucky; F Tyler Smith, Tennessee; C A.J. Ogilvy, Vanderbilt; G Nick Calathes, Florida; G Devan Downey, South Carolina.

Comment: Jarvis Varnado? (Sorry.) Tasmin Mitchell? (My bad.) Chris Johnson? (Whoops.) Ronald Steele? (What was I thinking?). Jodie Meeks? (@#$%#$)

Player of the Year: Patrick Patterson, Kentucky.

So don't worry about tomorrow, take it today; forget about the tip, we'll get hell to pay
