Gary Parrish predicts Kentucky will only lose one more game in the regular season


Kentucky has won its three SEC games so far by an average of 30.3 points, an absolutely ridiculous number. Aside from Florida, it’s starting to look like few teams in the conference are capable of knocking off the Cats, a random clunker aside. Kentucky’s dominance of late prompted CBS Sports’ Gary Parrish to write an article yesterday in which he predicts the Cats will “run away with the SEC.”

“Nobody in the SEC, with the possible exception of Florida, is in the same ballpark as Kentucky. And even if Florida is legit, UK will win the SEC by multiple games,” Parrish writes. “My prediction: UK goes 17-1 in the SEC, wins the SEC Tournament and has a 31-3 record on Selection Sunday. That’ll deliver a No. 1 seed in the NCAA Tournament. And then Calipari’s second national title will be within reach.”

The AP and Coaches Polls will be released in a few hours, but Parrish has Kentucky fifth in his Top 25 and One, noting that KenPom predicts the Cats will finish at least four games ahead of everybody but Florida in the SEC.

Sounds about right.

    I actually totally agree. I don’t know who we would lose to…but I wouldn’t mind an away lose in mid to late February. But looking at the schedule I don’t know when that would happen…maybe @ Alabama Feb 11?

      In-conference – nobody. Kansas is a tossup though because they’re really good too. If we win that one, a #1 seed is ours to lose

    If we get that number 1 seed like I think we will…. We will be bringing number 9 back to Lexington.

    We will get a #1 seed….but, just like always, about a #4 seed’s draw.

    This team has to be good at road games. Every team will bring their best against us. Steam rolling teams at home is one thing but on the road is where it matters.

      It will be interesting to see them on the road against a good team. They lost their composure against Louisville, which is the only time that has happened this year. I want to see how they are on the road if things aren’t going well. Are they mentally tough enough to turn that kind of game around?

    The biggest threat to the Cats this year would be a strong rebounding team. They are the fastest Kentucky team ever, in my opinion. I don’t know if there has ever been a college team anywhere that is faster? But a team like NC could be a real problem for them come tournament time, in my opinion. They will need to learn how to rebound better or to tip rebounds to their teammates on the outside, to compete with a team like North Carolina, or else, have Malik Monk go off for 47 points again. 🙂

    I don’t care if they lose 7 regular season games, as long as they don’t lose any on the post-season!

    This team has a few more losses in it, and one in March unfortunately. Dook will be the team to beat…

    So long as we win our last six, I’m okay with it. Think by March, the Cats can handle anyone on a neutral court.

    I think the Cats end up a #1, simply because the ACC and Big12 will be brutal on those top teams. Though, I could see Kansas or Duke both only having one conf loss.

    I really like this team, and the early losses don’t really bother or surprise me (ok Loserville one bothers me). However, there are two teams I really don’t want to see come tournament time….and we will certainly see them both in our bracket. North Carolina, and West Virginia. Both of those teams I think would cause the Cats problems.

    I think too many folks here are overestimating how far our team has progressed. We are uber talented, but inconsistent and no one at the 4. If we go 31-3 it will be a miracle. I would bet the house we won’t, but I’d be happy as hell if we did.
