Throughout the summer, while you wait and wait for football season to arrive (and for some, basketball season is all that matters), I like to find some old games of the past that aren’t mentioned as much in UK lore, but still were classics.
Today is the game that came after the Dream Game. Actually is was the game that came after THE game that came after the game. But nonetheless, many people forget that UK got revenge on UL following the Dream Game loss by beating the Cards in the 1984 Sweet 16. UK has pounded UL by 21 earlier that season but all that mattered was March for that great Cats team and despite a good effort from UL, the Cats would win that game on their way to the Final Four.
