The sun is shining brightly in Tampa and Cal and his boys are getting set to start their Sunshine State preparations this afternoon.  Your preparations, however, start right now with Matt Jones and Kentucky Sports Radio.  Matt caught the tourney bug last night and will take to the airwaves and look to spread it across the Big Blue Nation.

Here’s what will be talked about today:

* Cats and Tigers!  Cats and Tigers!

* Matt apologizes for all those awful things he said about Dayton

* Time for Terrence Jones

* We all pour out a little for Nate Dogg

The comments game also continues this week and your participation in the comments’ section gives you a chance to win some money. Each day, the two best comments will be selected by Matt and Drew the Intern and placed into a weekly drawing for $200, courtesy of Fan Outfitters.

    I agree with the comments about waiting until all the tournaments are over before offically seeding the tournament. What happens if they are almost completed and a team like Georgia wins the SEC tournament like a few years ago, and wasn’t a team that was going to be in the tournament. If the Bulldogs lost in the finals that year, they were going to the NIT not the NCAA, but they won and threw a wrench in the mix and knocked another team out. If the tournament is not useful, why is it played other than money and the Cinderella Story?

    Why do we keep focusing on Ohio State!! Win these first two games first, and then worry who you play. I am sick of everyone breaking down a game that may never happen. George Mason could beat Ohio State. We could lose to Clemson/WVU. Don’t worry about Ohio State until UK has to play them.

    Dayton was the site of Rupp’s last coaching game where UK was runner-up in the mideast regional. In my opinion that was one of Rupp’s greatest accomplishments by even getting to the tournament with the players on that team.
