Two Videos You Should Watch Over And Over Today (Instead Of The National Championship Game)

College basketball’s national championship will go to either Virginia or Texas Tech around midnight tonight, not “home to Kentucky,” as Tom Leach proclaimed in 2012. It is going to be a pretty boring game between two pretty boring teams, so viewership will likely reach an all-time low for this year’s final.

I might watch the game, if nothing else catches my eye on TV, if I’m even home to watch TV. I can’t imagine many of you are eager to turn it on either. In fact, 58% of you said you have no plans to watch it, according to our morning poll.

I say we watch a couple of videos from happier times in the Bluegrass instead, back when Aaron Harrison put Kentucky in the title game in 2014, and when Kentucky won it all for the first time in 14 years in 2012.

Let’s play these videos on a loop today as the college basketball season comes to an end.

    Can’t speak for everyone but as a college basketball fan I’m looking forward to it. Some good storylines. Texas Tech’s first trip to the finals. Border state team in Virginia which I don’t despise plus Bennett seems like a good dude. Plus as a non-NBA or MLB fan thus begins a scarcity of watchable sports for me.

      You can speak for me. Don’t think anyone misses any NCAA Finals if they are a real college BB fans. Kind of narrow minded if someone doesn’t watch it because the Cats aren’t in it. Links to those two UK games is nice, but this article is otherwise silly.

      I wonder if UK had not won the championship that year whether Cal would still be offered a lifetime deal.

      Yep! But it’s a clean past to go along with being the winningest basketball team in the history of the world, and this makes the fan base, players and alumni hungry for #9. It’s called an inspirational recording of history. One that makes UK basketball the greatest!
