Mark Fox opened his postgame press conference by saying Kentucky whooped his Georgia Bulldogs. The two teams, tied for second place in the SEC entering the game, didn’t play the conference battle he expected. It was all Kentucky, all afternoon.
Afterward, Jerry Tipton asked Mark Fox what he thought about 23,000-plus fans showing up to Rupp Arena in the middle of a blizzard early Saturday afternoon, and Fox wasn’t up for gushing over Big Blue Nation.
“What, you want me to comment on the fan base? They don’t need any more pats on the back.”
