    #4 The interviewer seemed to structure his questions in such a way so as to exclude discussion on Kentucky. Not surprising, considering how he was beaming when asking Shabazz about UNLV.

    USC: Hands Bazz a duffel bag.

    Bazz: What’s this?

    USC: Let me have that back please.

    9 — That’s OK because at the end of the season UK will be 1-o vs in state teams, while UL will be 1-1 (win WKU) vs in state teams…

    9 – You’ll also notice that Realtime RPI has Louisville losing by 11 to UK, so to your point, they do know what they are talking about.

    9. By the end of the season, Kentucky will be celebrating #8 in Nawlins and the Tards will be home in Louihood reliving their loss to the Cats on New Years. Make sure to add that into the equation, because SOS will be very comforting on the bus ride home in March.

    #9, first you are a troll… quit sweating our team…
    We can discuss your team though…

    You needed overtime to beat the “even weaker SEC) team you played Vanderbilt who has been beaten by everybody already..

    You beat Butler in your only road game to date and they are way DOWN this year…

    You scored less than 60 points on Ohio, Arkansas State, 62 against the might Bellarmine..

    Barely beat Memphis at home who has lost to Murray State… Something in common with you guys though, beaten by a Kentucky school (Morehead State).. LOL

    @9 – No way is Louisville’s SOS ranked 69. They’re the best team in the country, dawg!!! And not only that, but they’re going undefeated! POINT BLANK! PERIOD SON!!!

    (I’m bored at work, so I’ll take the bait)

    Conference play down the road notwithstanding, as it stands our signature wins currently are over Kansas (#12) and UNC (#5…a top 3 team by all rights). Your latest wins are over 5-4 Memphis and offensive powerhouse C of Cha (barely). You have no legs to stand on here. Screw any numbers you want, and if looking better on paper in one facet of the game makes you feel better, then go for it. Post it on your refrigerator and look at it every morning this week.

    After the 31st none of that will matter.

    #9. Realtime RPI isn’t worth a grain of salt right now because weak teams RPI is inflated because of the strength of schedule they face. If you really think Lamar, Ohio, Long Beach State etc are going to be in the top 50 or 100 RPI at the end of the year keep dreaming.

    UL has not played a team that will be a top 7 seed or better in the tourney. Guess what a cup cake is cup cake no matter how you spin it. Sorry but Ohio/Charlston, ect. are cup cakes! Kansas, UNC and IU not so much. I thought UL would be playing a good schedule, but Memphis and Vandy are not good at all. Quit building up these mid majors like they are something special. Charlston and Ohio will be 15 seeds at best. Quit acting like you beat a quality opponent.

    UL is going to struggle this year and the fans dont see it yet. UL has the making of an early exit again because they lack athletes and shooters.

    Eloy Vargas has 39 rebounds in 102 minutes, good for over 15 boards per 40 minutes. He has officially figured out how to rebound strong with two hands.

    I love how people use RealTime RPI now.

    Southern Miss is top 5, Iona is top 10, Ohio is top 10.

    To all the UL fans, Ohio’s and CoC will be your first round tests so you better be ready. On a neutral floor with neutral refs, UL will not make it past 1st round!

    KYrealist – here is a little info. for you. 99% of UK fans don’t even know what UL blogs are out there. Even is they did, they sure as hell would not bother to follow them and post on them. This is yet another example of little brother’s complete irrelevance to college basketball.

    walrus did you watch last night’s game? Looked to me like Vargas was still having trouble controlling rebounds, but it does look like he is getting better.

    22 – you want me to break it down for you:
    UNC, Kansas, UL, IU, UF, UF, Miss St –> those are current top 25 teams to be played or played (7 total)
    Also we cant forget about the might LSU Tigers who beat Marquette the other night.

    And to break down UL’s schedule:
    Top 25 games – Uk, GTown, Marquette, Pitt, Uconn, Cuse, Pitt, Cuse (8 total).

    Please explain why UL’s SoS is better? I can, its because you all polish up turds like they are some Final Four contender, while UK blows them out their arse by 30 points!

    26, u so funny. First off, I have a college degree from Murray State. Second off, Rupp Arena is bigger than ur Cum Center. Third, they are renovating Rupp and when it’s done, it will blow ur chicken bucket out of the water. Have u not seen the pictures? UK will always be better than u. Cal will always get recruits over u. And UK will continue to kick ur ass every year. So next time, come with some that makes sense. I wont even begin all the jokes I can say about Lville ppl. It’s like u forget u still live in KY.

    29, where is this proof of cheating at basketball? And where is this proof his wife was married? He met her in Kansas when he was an assistant with Larry Brown. I’m beginning to think u have serious envy.

    UK’s SOS is 28 spots better than the Cards on kenpom (also ranked 10 spots higher). UK has played Ken Pomeroy’s #5, 7 and 11 ranked teams, only one of which was at home. Louisville hasn’t played a single team in Pomeroy’s top 30. No idea the highest ranked away/neutral game Louisville’s played. Maybe #126 Butler?

    CHECK OUT KENPOM.COM if you don’t believe it. It’s all there!!!!

    100% of Louisville fans know where all the Dentist offices are located. As well as the pain clinics and the hospitals. They also know when they close, how many people work there, how tight security is, good locations to gain entry undetected, they also have a vast knowledge of narcotics and their current street prices.

    I am worried about the rest of the season with Malone out and if something happens to Long and Polson we are done, we will not even make the tourney if that happens.

    Pitino in ten years could not win a Championship at UL. Pitino states the fact that he left the best and had to settle for the rest, because he wanted to live in Kentucky. Pitino would give his soul to be back at Kentucky, because UL is a Mid major and he knows what Camelot looks like.
