You know ESPN’s Pat Forde, right? He’s a father, husband, sportswriter, turd. Well, he’s also going out on a limb and picking the Cats in a New Year’s Eve showdown between bitter Bluegrass rivals. Forde took to his Twitter account today and answered who he thought would emerge victorious in the final Kentucky basketball game of 2010. Here is what Forde begrudgingly had to say:
@espn4d Probably UK, close. Don’t think UL has tested itself sufficiently to be ready.
@espn4d I’ve seen UK-UL game come down many times to which team is ready for a battle and which isn’t. Sagarin SOS rankings: UK 44th, UL 288th
@espn4d That said, UL is much, much better than I anticipated them to be. Been a fun team to watch so far.
BEWARE OF THE REVERSE JINX!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
