Louisville’s Akoy Agau was a special guest on a sports radio show in Omaha this morning and the freshman center had some interesting comments about the Kentucky-Louisville rivalry. Agau believes UofL fans are more mature than UK fans and he hopes UK fans don’t find out he said that:
“It’s literally, if you win, you have exactly 365 days until the next game you play each other to brag and talk all the crap they want,” he said. “It’s literally all they do. It’s red and blue just going back at each other. If a Louisville player does something, all the Kentucky fans want to … publicize it or get it out.
“I personally feel like our fans are more mature. I hope there’s not any Kentucky fans listening.”
“We could be in the national championship playing against someone else, or we could have like 10 more games before playing that game, but that’s the only game anybody’s talking about down there,” Agau said of U of L-UK, before adding, “I’ve never been a part of something so crazy – amazing.”
He’s right about the 365 between games, though. Crazy and amazing, couldn’t agree more.
