    In all of our excitement lets also thank these young men for not only playing so hard and together all year but for representing the UofK so well. These are great players but also great young men. I know TJ had an issue but is young and hopefully learned. These guys have been people I am proud to say they went to UK. They will also, in all probability, continue to represent the UofK very well. SO from the BBN to each member of the 2011/2012 Kentucky Basketball CHAMPIONS….Thank you very much for all you have done on and off the court.

    I think why I’ve loved the cats so much during my 38 years on this earth starts with the fact that I stand 5’3″ and while i am very good looking I cant play BBall worth a shit. So i get to live vicariously through these teams. This is my 3rd title in my lifetime and i have to admit I wish i was in Lex and 25 again partying with all the youth out there. Instead I will just sit here on my fat ass and grin while my wife and kids sleep. So thanks to the 2012 CATS for giving me something to truely enjoy this year! UK#8 Baby!!!!

It is people like you with no respect for others that make this world suck some days. But guess what? You cant touch us!

    At the end of the game, I ran out the door into my subdivision and yelled as loud as I could here in southern middle Tennessee, “Kentucky Wins!!!” Great to be able to flaunt it when you have it. I did the same thing in 98 in Gallatin. Life is good. The dynasty begins! Hoosiers, we will get you back next year when you have to play us as the #1 in either Louisville or Lexington. It only matters if you are #1 at the end of the year. Lets get Noel and Muhammad and go for #9 next year!
