Chris Mack think it’s unfair to play UK in basketball in 2020

Louisville head coach Chris Mack was a guest on the “Full Court Press with Fanta and Adams,” a college basketball podcast out of Cleveland, and the topic of ducking the Kentucky game came up in the conversation.

Host John Fanta asked Mack if Louisville vs. Kentucky will happen in 2020, to which Mack said, “I don’t know.”

“Where is the equity of Kentucky coming here in front of no fans, and then having to go to Rupp Arena in front of 21,000 fans?” Mack asked, before saying he’d be up for playing a neutral site game if the two sides’ schedules allow.

Fanta shared the response in a short clip on Twitter:

Lame excuse. College football teams are playing without fans across the country and not whining about it. You don’t think Auburn wants the equity of fans when Kentucky plays football there Saturday? Just last week the UofL football team hosted Miami with College GameDay in town, and Coach Satterfield didn’t cry about a future game at Miami with fans.

The world needs sports, your student-athletes need to play their respective sports as close to normal as possible, and above all else, John Calipari has a winning streak to maintain.

Play the game.

    Great coach but man both the Louisville Football coach and Basketball coaches like to whine about everything.

    Go Cats!

      Amen to that. Way too many young uns out there haven’t figured out that sometimes life just ain’t fair. Just how it is. Get over it and move forward.

    They scurred to play the Cats. Absolute pathetic response. I’d be embarrassed if I were a cards fan. Thank God I’m not, am I right?

    WOW, I lost what LITTLE respect I had for Mack. It is not like anyone asked for the CV pandemic to show up out of nowhere. So now he wants to pick and chose games based on whether he has a chance to win or not ? Will he be bitching and crying about teams like WKU or the lesser ACC teams they play ? They will not even play (Louisville not just him) WKU in Diddle Arena. They know the hostile crowd and home court advantage would be a huge difference maker even in years WKU is down in talent. And save the “arena is too small” garbage. They will play in arenas about the same size. What about the players ? I am sure they want to play. The fans , the state ? Come on Chris, don’t be such a little **ssy. Besides not like we wouldn’t beat their ass if the arena is full, even if you had 0 UK fans and filled it with 100% Louisville fans, it would not make a difference. Take that L like a man, then put them L’s down. Don’t run around scared and hide behind lame, BS excuses.

    Haha. Even though U of Smell cheats every year, we still kick their ass. Last time I checked, the YUM Center was about as much of a “neutral site” as can be found.

    Coach Satterfield would have cried about it, if he had thought about it…he certainly doesn’t like L’s down, does he?

      I’m confused, is he supposed to like L’s down? Maybe join in on the fun after they lose? lol of course not

    KY dominates the series. If Mack don’t want to play then tell them to hit the road and we can play someone relevant that might challenge us yesr to year. We don’t need this game. Screw the Lossrs.
