    I would be insulted that they brought on some random dude to debate me. Where did they find this guy? What makes him the guy that needs to be put on television to debate someone over UL athletics? Was there some kind of raffle that this guy won?

    I’m hoping for a breakout game from Harrow & Poythress and it would be nice if Cauley-Stein would have 1 of his better games as well. We need to attack from the get go. Their guards are fast, so that worries me a little. BUT, I’m hoping for an upset on those Dirty Parrots.

    Man these UL fans are such cry babies, they cannot take the heat. It is fun to me to go back and forth with them over this game every year, and it always seems like they are saying, “I can’t wait til……..” WELL WE’VE BEEN WAITING FOR 4 YEARS NOW!!!!!!!

    This should piss off All Taxpayers in Jefferson Count; taxpayers are keeping the Yum Center open.

    UL Yum Center Lease:

    UL makes at least $450,000 per game, UL pays 10% of all admission receipts less taxes or a minimum of $10,000 per game, pays 5% of ticket receipts or at least $5,000 per game on non-revenue producing sports, UL keeps 88% of net private suite revenue along with all revenue from premium seating and side-court VIP seating even non UL events, pay no rent or fee for either President Ramsey or Athletic Director Tom Jurich suite, keeps 50% of concession even for non UL events, along with taking up the majority of available dates.

    I think the 3 stats we need to worry about are:
    Free Throws – We HAVE to hit our free throws
    Turnovers – We have to protect the ball
    Offensive Rebounds – We have to keep UL from getting Offensive Rebounds

    I think we win those 3 stats, we move on to next year.

I mean as long as Wiggins makes the decision on his own, I guess there is no problem, but if someone is talking him ot of HIS decision, isn’t there something there? I’m not sure, I’m just trying to find out for my own knowledge.
