We got good response from Wofford alumni (who knew there were so many) taking up for the Wofford ladies and sending pictures. Realize that KSR loves Wofford and we will do what we can to pull them to a March victory.
A couple of quick notes:
— The SEC coaches named their All-SEC teams and the Cats did very well. John Wall was of course Player of the Year, Cousins Freshman of the Year (how is Wall not the Freshman of the Year if he is the player of the year?), and Patrick Patterson joined these two on the All-SEC First team. A good haul by all
— To the extent there was a surprise, it was the fact that Calipari lost Coach of the Year to Kevin Stallings. I like Stallings and think he does great work on “The Office”, but the notion that Calipari (or for that matter Bruce Pearl) hasnt had a better coaching year is silly. It just shows, as Gary Parrish of CBS pointed out, that the fellow coaches in the SEC are not fans of Calipari and Pearl and use the award as a popularity contest.
— The newest ESPN Bracketology would look good for UK. It has the Cats playing in Syracuse, with West Virginia (who has now passed Villanova as the likely #2 seed for UK after beating them last week) as the 2 seed in their region, Michigan State as the #3 and Baylor as the #4 seed. I would take this bracket in a heartbeat if thats how it played out
— For the record, if UK stays ahead of Syracuse, it will likely play the play-in game winner. Kansas will be in Oklahoma City and the rule is that the play-in winner must play a team that plays on Friday…which is when the Milwaukee games will be held. That means play-in game for UK, not for #1 overall seed Kansas.
