    Still can’t believe we let a mediocre Auburn team without one of their best players keep us from the FF after handling them twice. Too many turnovers and scoring lulls. Love those two guys but it hurts watching all our players do so well in the league but fall short of glory at UK.

    Am I the only person that hates the USA vs the World format? Imo it’s unfair to the more talented USA players who no longer get to showcase their games on the national stage. Why are players like Jarret Culver, Colin Sexton, and MPJ not in this game? Who would rather see Svi Mykhailiuk (Detroit), Josh Okogie (Minnesota), Moritz Wagner (Washington)? I’m guessing no one!
