    Our RPI is doing just fine (see Tennessee/UConn and Arkansas/Michigan)

    We’re back where we belong. However, we have to careful when it comes to Miss St. and Vandy.

    However, as Mel brooks once said, “It’s nice to be the King”.

    The world is always a better place when Kentucky has a 1 beside their name. Lets keep it awhile, please.

    Gillie tweeted out “It just got real again”, possibly referring to Cuse losing? Maybe!

    You can’t argue with the effectiveness of the Syracuse zone…. and it’s not like they surprise anybody with it.

    Nice to be back at number!!! However, won’t be devastated if we lose one more or even a couple more times. Don’t want their heads to get too big since they’re so young. Plus, it will provide more learning moments. It’s a relief though to realize Cuse is beatable. Also, so far, we have the cleanest upset. Only one point, after a freak shot. Not too bad πŸ™‚ GO CATS!

    Nearly every game panned out the way a UK fan would have wished today. For those who hate our program, tomorrow is going to be a tough one to deal with. There won’t be many reasons against us being ranked #1 and that will not set well with a lot of media. Get ready for some nasty articles in the near future and just be proud to be a UK fan. I love our team!

    I don’t think Doris would like that,if it was Mike Brey’s wife, I don’t think she would mind so much. Did you hear her and that dude calling the game. They make Jimmy Dykes sound like Cawood Ledford. Damn I didn’t think that was ever going to end!! I felt like I was in the movie “SAW”being tortured to my slow death, listening to that crap. I agree with equal rights (Men vs. Women), but at least put a woman on the air that can call a basketball game

    I’d like to hear what Anthony Grant had to say about that
    last play he drew up. I think he out-coached himself by
    putting the ball in the hands of someone “less likely”
    trying to catch us off guard. He’s a good coach–
    not the “great” coach people make him out to be.

    Digger Phelps ragging on Teague. What a goober. Teague played a solid game today. Its hard to get assists when the other team hacks your big men all day.

    #32 I’m talking ’bout that great play he drew up.
    You could see it on the face of both Relaford and
    Lacey… they were “what the __” after the the ending.

    Vandy goes DOWN!! UK not only #1 in the nation, but now #1 in the SEC! Dykes said today that Vandy fans were wondering who was the 2nd best team in the SEC after Vanderbilt…LMAO !

    Numbers 1, 3, and 4 all lost today. Cats should be a solid # 1



  51. InternationalPhilosophy
    10:47 pm January 21, 2012 Permalink

    Katz has some sense, he ranks UK #1 now…Gottlieb says Ohio St. should be the new #1, but a severe case of cranial/rectum inversion will do that to a guy.
    Being #1 is cool and should be celebrated, but the realistic goal is to finish in the top 4 in order to get a one seed for the tourney.
    The top ranking will fire up SEC road opponents, as if they didn’t need more motivation when UK comes to town.
    That’s fine, though, because the hotter it gets for this young team now the stronger they’ll be when it really counts.

    Really don’t care about being #1 now, gotta be there at the end. Nice to see Ole Rat Face get beat and also nice to see Huggins beat his old team, Cincinnati.

    Favorite win of the day? Tenn over UConn(@ home)!!!! Some folks had them preseason top 5! Remember that? I still haven’t gotten over the final 4 loss, we as UK fans should love when they eat dirt! 2 times at home in one week by unranked teams! Har Har Har!



  54. InternationalPhilosophy

    Ordy, not to quibble, but the game was at Tenn.
    But yeah, the SEC did good today and UK’s rpi improved because of it.

    Only thing I care about is being #1 when all is said and done. This team should win it all no ifs ands or butts about it.

    Notice how AD is learning to avoid fouling.
    He has to play at least 35 minutes for UK to win against good teams and he’s learning how to play the game so he’s on the floor at the end, when he’s needed most in close games.
    This is a smart kid who listens and learns fast, who understands teamwork and hustle, and who might just carry these guys to a championship.
    If MKG can cut down on the fouls this team will be unbeatable by March.

    #51.. Gottlieb is a chode chomper! Mizzou deserves to be ranked higher than Oh St. The best thing to come out of Ohio is an empty bus.
