I don’t know about you, but my head is still humming from Saturday’s 73-72 win over North Carolina in Rupp Arena. Rarely does a game with as much hype as UK/UNC live up to the billing, but this one sure did. The crowd was outstanding, the players were talented and the game was great.  Considering the enormity of the game, it’s no wonder that there was a plethora (word of the day calender coming in handy) of coverage available on the Internet. For your Monday morning enjoyment, here are the sights, sounds and opinions from Saturday’s UNC/UK game:

OPINIONS

– From ESPN.com, here’s Jason King’s take on a great regular season game.

– Seth Davis of SI.com describes the March “feel” of Saturday’s game.

– Here’s CBSSports.com’s Jeff Goodman on why he can’t wait for a UNC/UK rematch.

– Some chump named Pat Forde describes how UK’s freshman grew up before our eyes against UNC.

– Lexington Herald-Leader’s Mark Story looks at Anthony Davis’s impact in his first 8 games as a Wildcat.

– Courier-Journal columnist Eric Crawford looks ahead to a March/April rematch between UK/UNC.

A review of the game from TarHeelFanBlog.com. Read the comments section, quite amusing

    Today’s lesson: “Considering the enormity of the game …”

    Enormity means a great wickedness. To convey bigness, say enormousness or find a synonym (immenseness). Or make up a word (gi-normity). But don’t misuse this commonly misused word for evil.

    I read that UNC article and thier comments. I just kept thinking about UL. UNC fans have brains. UL fans do not.

    Totally agree with #6. I read the comments, too, and UNC fans are taking the game in stride and are all pretty complimentary towards UK, without all the same old “Cal’s a cheater” drivel that UL fans generally spout. I hope the series with UNC continues, as there seems to be more mutual respect between these two programs than exists with any of our other rivals… plus there’s a mutual hatred towards Duke that we both share.

    Ha ha. The reason why the talking heads want a rematch is cuz their team lost.

    Let’s get focused on the IU game coming up. An undefeated IU team looking forwards to us as their biggest game of the season, let’s not lose sight of this.

    Too bad the “word of the day calender” doesn’t help you spell calendar.

    8 – I actually came away from that game with more respect for UNC squad. They are good and they all seem to be decent guys.

    Wow, that’s actually a pretty positive article from Forde. No cheap shots. Actually giving us credit. Color me shocked.

    Comments From the TarHeelFanBlog:
    I think everyone needs to take a deep breath. I sat 7 rows behind our bench yesterday and I will tell you I have never heard a crowd so loud before. That place was tough to play at and we responded well. It was a tough loss but look how good we are already compared to last year. Honestly I don’t see us losing another game this season and possibly winning it all. We are a damn good team. Oh and what do you all think we’ll drop to in the rankings? 6?
    “Tough loss. Rupp exploided after the block. I don’t blame the brainfreeze. Zeller struggled in the post all day. He doesn’t have sure enough hands to be a go to guy in that situation. Get them next time.”
