Yes, they can beat UL again esp on a neutral court.  If we play like we did today then we can beat them.  UL is smoke and mirrors.  They couldn't beat Memphis for crying out loud.  Who have they beat anyway besides a bunch of scrub teams.  So they came back against SMU.  Had they done that against a good team UL would have lost.

We're a bad match up for the Cards: long and tall at every position.  If we get to them, they go down.

Re: UK VS UL 


Saying UL can't beat Memphis is like saying UK cannot beat Ark which I might pointout is not as good as Memphis.

As a UL fan I don;t like the UK match up only because UK get teams in foul trouble and UL is not deep on the front line. The UK size on the outside means nothing as the Harrison have no shot to defend the UL guards.

If they play again the key for UL is outside shooting. In the game in Rupp UL shot the ball poorly. If they shoot decent UL will win. Remember UL is playing much different the last few weeks. Pitino has changed the changed the speed UL plays to very fast to wear the other teams out.

Scary match up for Ul but UK has to prove they can beat a good team.

RE: UK VS UL 


UK is a bad match up for ul.  In addition to length, UK has depth.  So, the "wearing down" is not quite as applicable to UK. 

With that said, if the game is allowed to be a "rape fest", then ul has a shot.  On the other hand, hard fouls will still be called.  Since UK tries to attach a press, it is likely that UK ends up on the line a lot when trying to finish.

RE: UK VS UL 


UL's built their ranking on blowing out bad teams.  Whenever they play anyone decent it's a different story.  They played 11 games against the bpi top 50, going 6-5.  They were 0-1 against the bpi top 20, losing to UK.  

We played 5 games against teams inside the top 20, going 1-4.

Re: UK VS UL 


It's hard to say.  We just don't know which UK team will show up.

Also, we beat a "rival" on our home floor back in December.  Could be much different on a neutral floor in March.

We are so inconsistent with our outside shooting, I just couldn't make a prediction.  I just hope it comes to fruition.

Re: UK VS UL 


UL is really hot right now beating the teams in their tournament like they did, but across the season their SOS is barely better than Wichita St.'s, which is why they got the see they did.

To beat them we just need to beat the press and guard the 3.  Harrell is really good, but they can't do enough inside to win that battle against us.

Of course I'd like to start by beatng K-State.

They beat Rutgers, Houston and UConn in their tournament.

Weak competition overall, UCONN's not bad, but they absolutely crushed them all.  Games all over at halftime.  UCONN game was what 10-12 pts, but they were never in the game really.

They might be on a roll, but how much of that is due to the level of competition they've been playing lately?  Against teams in the tournament, they went 5-5, all of those games against teams seeded lower than they are with the 4.  Without their three wins against UConn they would be 2-5 in those games.

I hope we get to play ul.  At that time, I will gladly open up a can of smack.  (I guess VanTreese is better than Chane the smoke man).

If it plays out that way, and we beat K-State and Wichita State - if/when up playing Loserville in the Sweet Sixteen, I think our toughest game will already be behind us in the Midwest Bracket unless we end up playing Michigan in the Elite Eight.

With JC on this;

Assuming UK keeps winning, Mich or Texas are the worst matchups for UK.

A rematch with UL will be a crap shoot, like most rivalry games.

Yes. We are bad match up for them. We had some significant advantages going into the game but our size just dominates them.

Okay card fans, you can now start talking smack to us.  Please bring your "A" game.

RE: UK VS UL 


U of Smell has nothing to talk smack about, unless it's last year. Most line beards know their dirty bird is cooked come Friday night and won't admit it. They soil themselves at the mere mention of the Cats and BBN. All they've got is Slick Rick's record in the Sweet Sixteen to hang their hat on - but since Cal owns Mr Quickie, 5-1, you can throw that out the window too. Little brudder is in big, big trouble and he knows it.

Radio show here in Louisville saying this is a really bad match up for them pirate like we didn't know that ...

RE: UK VS UL 


Yep, we are a really bad matchup against anyone if we keep playing like we are.  TN can sort of match us, but they have no backups when the fouls hit.  That's the only reason they didn't beat WSU earlier this season.

According to Badinage, and some other two-faced posters here, rape fests don't happen to UK. Well actually, it depends on which threads you read. Sometimes they say one thing, and sometimes another. Depends on whether or not they like the poster.

The pre-emptive excuses have already started flowing on the UL board. Refs. Russ's boo-boos. No Chane Behanan.

RE: UK VS UL 


Cat Fever- a reasonably intellegent man once said, "I can't define pornography, but I know what it is when I see it."  In other words, what one person sees as poor play and bastardization of bball may not be what someone else sees. 

I can't define what is borderline criminal sexual assault while in a bball game, but when I see what ul does, I see a rape fest.  For example, let's say a group of men were in public chasing an equal number of women.  While in pursuit of the women, the men bump and rub up against the women.  Then, the man try to push the woman in a direction with the man's crotch while hold his hands in the air (visualize ul player running next to the guy with the ball). 

By some chance the woman starts to get away, the man starts grabbing at her arms and breast area to come back (visualize ul getting beat just past mid-court and slapping at the ball).  Also, when this starts to occur, the man calls his friends to help corral her (visualize trap just over mid-court).

If all that fails, the man then hits the woman over the head and to the ground (visualize ul going for the blocked shot).

With all that, I really like Bad and his posts.

RE: UK VS UL 


All of this because I do not think UK lost to Arkansas TWICE because of poor officiating. I am not a conspiracy theorist and try not to be a crybaby. And, because I think there will be no NBA team in Louisville over the next decade, probably beyond. Some people would rather name-call than try to defend their poor positions. That is telling.
