    The team and fanbase can both enjoy and benefit from this bye week. The weather this weekend looks way too good to not have a game though.

      Too bad there isn’t more room to tailgate around Rupp Arena before BBM. It would be good weather for it.

    I love the excitement and anticipation that BBM brings. The whole season and all it’s possibilities are stretched out before us….

      Also, I might have overcaffeinated.

      Lol, you just reminded me of an episode of Sponge Bob I watched with my nieces and nephews. I’ve forgotten what the episode was about but remember Sponge Bob walking around town chanting, “I’m Ready! I’m Ready! I’m Ready!”

      I remember that from Spongebob. That is me exactly today.

    That’s what Ken Bone gets for trying to cash in on his 15 minutes of fame.

    Christian Watford went undrafted, played about a year and a half in the D-league, and has already washed out there too.

      How do you feel about his little brother coming to madness? Seems icky to me, but then if he played here Hoosier fans would probably hate it so…

      The funny part for me is a guy like Wiltjer is making a name for himself in Houston and Watford is probably learning a foreign language right now. Blows my mind.

      It seems weird that Watford’s brother is coming to BBM, but if he somehow ended up at UK I’m pretty sure it would make IU fans lose their minds. That could be funny and worth it.

      Wiltjer has always had a very good offensive game with diverse shot selection. He’s slow and not very athletic, and can’t guard anyone though. If he can continue to get buckets he may make it in the NBA, since most NBA teams seem to not care much about defense. The question is, can he continue to get open and make shots?

      There was another slow white guy named Bird who did pretty well shooting buckets. Not saying that Wiltjer could ever be mentioned in the same sentence, but ya never know. Curry has put a much bigger premium on hitting outside shots.

    The UK logo is still worse than the checkerboard. Get rid of both. Let’s go back to the Power K.

      Looked at Oscar Comb’s new website last night, and his logo is so good. I bet he paid a lot less than we pay Nike and marketing firms for this crap.

      I can live with the new logo. The checkerboard is fine in small doses, but a little goes a long way. The new basketball uniforms have too much of it, which just looks too busy.

    I am excited about the basketball team but really kind of fired up about the football team. I know that sounds crazy but can’t wait for the M. S. game. If we win that game things are really looking up. Will be watching tonight and answering the same ole questions for my Wife, NOW WHO’S THAT PLAYER?

      If we won that it would be huge. Wonder when we last won 3 SEC games.

      Friggin’ Jurich has taken over iHeart and is blacking out the show.

    Shannon the dude might want to consider a Florida residency and avoid paying state income tax because there is no state income tax in florida.
