It is 1 a.m. and I am sitting at the Waffle House drinking decaf coffee. The booths are full of Kentucky fans and it goes without saying, the mood is somber.
This is not what the story I planned on writing tonight. I planned on doing a recap of the game and pictures from the locker room full of smiling faces. But, here I sit at a booth at the Waffle House.
The roller coaster ride of the 2017-2018 Wildcats has come to a end. There were twists and turns, highs and lows and tonight it pulled into the loading area for the last time. The CATS could never take the controls tonight. Kansas State had more fuel and stamina.
So the BBN wakes up tomorrow with that “funk” feeling. The feeling that hangs around until October when Rupp opens the doors for Big Blue Madness.
Who will leave for the NBA?
Will Cal sign E.J. Montgomery?
Will Wiseman reclassify and if so does he choose Memphis?
I think I am going to head to the room and get some sleep. Tomorrow will be a new day and a new season.
Oh yeah….basketball Gods…one more favor…please don’t let Duke win.
