i was pretty ****** we were playing duke this early, considering they've got about 8 players who have more experience in a duke jersey than the entire UK team combined. but at the end of the season? they will have 0. i think UK may have the LEAST experienced team in the history of CBB, except i guess for the first season a school starts playing. they only had ONE player who played on UK more than 1 game in their life, going into that game. so, i think if Duke lost, that would say a LOT more than if UK lost.
anyway, no doubt we all would take duke in game 2 of the season. but game 30? my money is on the cats! i was pretty stunned at how bad they beat the dukies on that run from down 14 to down 3, they've really got potential - but i dont expect them to have reached it, uh, after 1 game in their college careers :)
best part of the game - half time interview, John Calipari - "these guys are flopping all over the place! if it was the NBA, they all get suspended" aaaahahah i love it. you have to give it to cal, no matter how much you like him - he SURE AS HELL gets what it means to be the coach of kentucky. i mean how perfect was that? i can't stand duke and their flopping, been watching it for 20 years now, it makes me sick (especially with dukey v in the background going, man, duke never gets the calls. what? are you kidding me?). i was glad to hear our coach call em out on it, its about time - and he gets +100 bonus points in the book of all the UK fans. i really hope hes not cheating badly over there, because if not, hes really one of the most amazing coaches of all time (game coach, not so much, not even possible to consider him top 10 all time. but recruiting, and more importantly, being an ambassador of kentucky, which is line 2 on the job description after "WIN", its hard to imagine someone doing better. even slick rick didnt capture the magic like cal does, and i LOVED pitino. still root for him, in fact).
