Jay Williams Picks Kentucky Over West Virginia

Jay Williams just pulled off a heel-turn that history will not soon forget.

In Morgantown, West Virginia for College Gameday, Williams is the only ESPN analyst on the show who makes picks.  That means he tends to cater to the home crowd.  Today it appeared he would do the same thing when he donned the John Denver glasses to lead the West Virginia crowd in Country Roads.

Then, this happened:

Wow.  Probably not a wise choice to antagonize the West Virginia fans.

Last week Williams also picked Kentucky.  We know how that ended for the Cats.  However, it’s worth noting that a week ago he wore Jarred Vanderbilt’s No. 2.  Today Kevin Knox’s No. 5 was stretched across Williams’ chest.

    For the second week I thought gameday was really disappointing. My main complaint is that they hardly talked about UK or WVU players or programs. Instead they just talked about the same stuff and people they always talk about. Been a boring two game days this year

      Haha. Didn’t notice it the first time, but they were cheering when he picked UK.

    Needless to say if we lose this one, we don’t ever want Jay Williams picking us again

    Here’s a Stat KSR has failed to mention.. Kentucky is 1-11 all time against AP Top 10 teams on the Road… lol

      So UK has only played a top 10 team on the road 12 times all time? LOL

      No I was wrong, in the LAST 12 road games

      O.K.
      Yeah, it’s tough to beat a top 10 team at their place for anybody.

      Oh, and UK has won 9 of their last 10 games against top 10 teams in the tournament. You know, when it counts. I’ll take that over your meaningless stat. We are by far the best in that category.

      TT a good team, though. They were my dark horse to win the Big 12…they’ve lost a couple they shouldn’t have.
      They did beat Wofford, though….ha ha UNCheat.
