    Dear Shabazz and Nerlens,
    I would really like to go to the Final 4 next year in Atlanta. I will order my tickets after your announcement. Please, please, please come to UK.

    Have a feeling that if UofL won it, there would be a picture saying “Pitino gets a piece,” but it’d have nothing to do with basketball.

    This is the coolest AD has ever looked off of the basketball court.

    Can’t wait to see him on late-night TV.

    11- Be it a stain or a shadow, that’s exactly what it looks like.

    Is Ryan Harrow still with the team? I did not see him in New Orleans and he wasn’t at the celebration in Rupp. What’s going on there?

    13- Yeah, I don’t know the reason why he wasn’t on the bench with the team, but I do know for a fact that he was in New Orleans but not with the team. He also wasn’t with the team during other tournament games. It’s almost like he can’t travel at all with the team for some reason? Transfer rules?

    That’s one thing I love about Matt and this site. He is a big fan just like us and paces right with us, even though he’s supposed to be on press row. 🙂

    I love how Robic bent the bill of his hat. THANK YOU SIR! I can’t stand this flat-bill trend. Looks retarded.
