Remember West Virginia?

Bob Huggins or Cousin Rocky?

Things to remember during your Kentucky/West Virginia deja vu:

– Bob Huggins is 8-1 vs. Calipari. You’ll hear a lot about this tomorrow.
Remember Joe Mazzulla? He’s the really annoying West Virginia guard who had the game of his life against the Cats last year in the Elite Eight. Well, he’s back, but not before an embarrassing citation for public urination last August.
They have a player named “Truck.” That is SO West Virginia (or Sarah Palin, I can’t decide).
– West Virginia sophomore Deniz Kilicli is friends with fellow Turk Enes Kanter. Unlike Kanter, Kilicli was allowed to play after serving a 20-game NCAA suspension. Like Kanter, I want to cry.
– Huggy Bear and Cal are friends (probably because everyone else hates them) and they texted during the Selection Show on Sunday about a possible rematch
– Darius Miller was 0-6 from the field (0-4 from the 3-point line) against West Virginia last year. After carrying the Cats against Princeton, you have to feel this year will be different for Mr. March.
– The Mountaineers run a 1-3-1 zone that, along with poor shooting, caused fits for the Cats last season
– Terrence Jones doesn’t feel well. Maybe some chicken soup and a beautiful woman to rub his head will do the trick?
– West Virginia guard Darryl Bryant, who had 18 points yesterday against Clemson, missed last year’s game against the Cats with an injury.
– West Virginia split games with Louisville this season, winning the latter game in Morgantown, 72-70. Know who also beat Louisville?
– …Morehead State. Nope, that’s not old yet. Neither is this picture.
– Tell me that Huggins doesn’t look like a grown up Cousin Rocky from National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation.

See you guys tomorrow. GO CATS.

    This is unrelated but has everyone noticed how much Vargas is improving every game? I think he will really improve this summer and be solid next season as a role guy.

    Ms. Thompson, the 6’10” Kilicli is not a guard. Your basketball knowledge is showing!

    say more about Jones being sick – he seemed really sick in the interview.

    That is a real low blow to WV-comparing their intelligence to Palin! And if Terrance needs some TLC, we should send over the 3 chicks in the photo from earlier today…that would sooth any ailment.

    If we lose we can blame it on T.J. being sick.

    It’s either – “but not until after” a citation, or “but only after”. The way you worded it makes no sense.

    I just hope Huggins body doesn’t finally explode during the game. I think he is only one potato chip away from it.

    If I have a pet peeve…it is when I see UK fans (many right from Kentucky) throw out digs about hillbillies, rednecks, trailer-trash, peoples names, etc… (I think ya get my point).

    Now Ms Tyler…you say here on a UK blog site…”is SO WV that they have a player named Truck”….c’mon now remember in the state of Kentucky that ain’t nuthin with some of the kids names we have.

    I’m just saying…don’t have a pot calling a kettle black.

    John Pelfrey has a nephew outside of Paintsville named “Red”. His last name? Green. Good stuff!

    I had a uncle named “Chug”.

    Suddenly, “Truck” is sooooo Kentucky. heh?

    I love your comments… always have… but the political referencing using Sarah Palin as an example of ignorance is a real turn off for me. I don’t read about sports… especially MY Cats, to hear/ read the same crap I get in the news.
    Please keep your political views to yourself…

      37-I wasn’t getting political (know better than to do that on here)…doesn’t Sarah Palin have a son named Truck? Or Track?
