University of Kentucky Basketball, Football, and Recruiting news brought to you in the most ridiculous manner possible.

– Orange faux-Christmas tree:  check

– University of Tennessee ornaments:  check

– Frat-paddle:  check

– Volunteer curtains:  check

– Power-T orange bedspread:  not pictured

– Hand drawn portrait of Wayne Chism and Duke Crews:  not pictured

– Framed bottle of Kentucky Gentleman on a UT background:  blasphemous

Ok, ok.  This room belongs to one of my very best friends (yes, we’re allowed to be good friends with Vol fans), so I only post this picture in good fun, despite all of the things listed above actually residing in his room.  He’s a good guy and usually reasonable fan, we we’ll cut him some slack for his orange-fanhood.  Still, the fact remains:  it’s been a ROUGH year or so for Tennessee fans.  The road game at Thompson-Boling this Saturday will feature a lot of disgruntled people in orange.

That’s assuming they actually show up.

My sister is making the trek to Knoxville, and I’ll admit – I semi-scared for her safety.  The attitude among UT fans currently ranges from pessimistic to downright p*ssed off.  At one point, fans were literally urinating on Kiffin’s image.  Lane Kiffin came…and left.  Layla Kiffin came (or at least put on a rousing acting job for Lane).  Pearl got canned. Dooley showed up.  Cuonzo appeared.  Both are struggling.  The streak was broken.  Etc, etc.  There’s plenty to be angry about down in Tennessee, and I’d hate to see this road game turn into an Indiana-esque fiasco.

I’m fairly certain it won’t.  This was mostly an excuse to post this picture.

    I actually think that this tennesse team is decent, I have watched them about 4 times. They have some weapons and play with alot of heart. They have some bad losses but they have been in every game. They are a team that you worry about, especially when you play them at home.
    Cuonzo Martin is a good coach and seems to be a very good recruiter. He will have tennesee back in a couple years but tennesee may surprise alot of people in the SEC this year.
    Kentucky will most likely win but wouldnt be surprised if it is by less than 5 points.
    GO CATS!!!!!

    UK doesn’t sleepwalk like they did vs Auburn this is a 18-22 point win. UK needs to get away from the play down to the competion.

    6, I was thinking the same thing. My gf and some of her friends were at a Pike party and had their beers spiked. Had to take two of them to the hospital.

    Happy the Cats won, but that charge call on UT at the end was questionable.

    15 if you watched that game there were many questionable calls. And Mathies was mugged on her game winning shot.

    17 I agree with both of your observations. Mathies was accosted on that game winner, and foul calls were pretty much so-so throughout the game both ways, no advantage. Great game to watch.
