I attended the last game between Kentucky and Wichita State in St. Louis. It was my first NCAA game and it did not disappoint. I will be honest, I made the trip thinking it was likely this would be the last time I would see this team play together.
The night before the game I sat for hours at Joe Bucks surrounded by Shocker fans. They were loud and confident. They were borderline obnoxious. The only other Kentucky fans to be found were the staff of WKYT.
I won’t recap the game. We all know what happened. It was one of the best NCAA games ever. The CATS shocked the “Shockers.”
Fast forward to today……
The CATS will once again tip off against the Shockers. The shoe is on the other foot, the CATS are favored but the Shockers have “poked the bear.”
I will never understand a coach that allows mouthing by players to be done. The media would have a field day with Calipari if his players trash talked openly to the other team.
Let’s just throw the ball up and play the game.
We are the better team. We have class and tradition. We are Kentucky and once again we will shock the “Shockers.”
Let’s do this CATS—–
