Well folks, the SEC's game of the year is upon us this Saturday as CBS's national TV game of the week. :clap:

This is an absolutely HUGE game for Kentucky, in that, if the kitties can't beat Arkansas, there is no way the kitties will win the national championship. Then add the embarrassment of a home loss while being undefeated and favored on big time national TV. :facepalm:

On the other hand, for Arkansas, a win or loss has little effect for the post season.

As we know, Arkansas should be favored in this game, but will not be because the general public is stupid. The kitties just can't seem to find a way to beat 40 minutes of hell. :we: It could be another day for kitty fans to take a collective puke in Lexington.

Kentucky fans will act nonchalant again about another loss to Arkansas, as they always do, but keep in mind kitty fans, when you lose to Arkansas, you don't win the national championship. It'll be close but no cigar again. :cry:

Arkansas has the experience edge, and matches depth stride for stride with UK. The Hogs come in on a 7 game SEC win streak, and have won 10 of their last 11 all in conference play. :dind:

Should be a great game for the top rivalry in the SEC. :towel:

Oh Doc. This game will not affect the National championship. UK would like an undefeated season ending in a NC. But 40-0 or 39-1 is still a NC.

We have no chance to win at UK.

I got $5 bucks that says Kentubby doesn't show up in this thread until after the game, and that is only if the referees cheated and Kentucky won.

Seriously this is a free shot for the Hogs but it's a free shot for Kentucky too.
They will win a share of the title tomorrow. The Hogs have to win out and then hope UK loses twice more which won't happen.

I just hope the Hogs can stay close.

it's gonna be an exciting environment for the Hogs Saturday no doubt Rupp will have a tournament atmosphere.

I just hope the Hogs can stay within 30 or 40 points.

Arkansas has nothing to lose this game, but if they do win, I think it bumps them up a seed in the NCAAT. This is the game of the year in the SEC though. Would be something if this was in Arkansas. I'd take the hogs in Bud Walton.

You make an interesting point, and one that actually is good advice. I won't post in this thread other than this post. I'll just say good luck and good job (should you win).

There's a thread where we've been talking about all the UK games. That's where I will post about this Arkansas game. I've got a few interesting things in that thread to say about WCS and Arkansas fans that I will post there. I just don't have the energy to deal with the hassle of most of the Arkansas fans on this board. (MKfromPA and the other non-frequent Arkansas fans I encourage you guys to post in the UK thread for this game. We can get some good discussion going that will be fun for all involved).

joehogjoe

No that thread is not adequate or dedicated to the game.

This game is the battle of the head bands. wcs vs Bobby Portis.

With Qualls injury we have no chance.

Wait did Mike Qualls get hurt last night? He is the second leading scorer for Arkansas at around 14 PPG. Without him, I can't see Arkansas pulling off the major upset.

I knew it was something like that, 14-15 PPG in SEC games can mean a TON in a 60 point game.

So will he have to miss time? If so, I just dont see them having the firepower to beat Kentucky.


KT, there are a lot more people on the KAT bandwagon for being the #1 overall pick in the NBA draft. He has a much higher ceiling than Okafor even if his game was not as polished as Okafor. Okafor is likely the "safe" pick but Towns has a much higher ceiling and can do more things on the court. Okafor is nowhere near the athlete that Towns is, but he is more polished on the low block. But his lack of athleticism scares me, I dont know if he can score easily in the NBA against those bigger, stronger defenders in the league.

I dont believe KAT has the ability to be the next Anthony Davis (who I feel, when healthy, is the best player in the NBA because he is an offensive beast and a game changer on defense. If I was building a team from scratch going forward, I would take Anthony Davis or anyone else in the NBA.

I don't think he is hurt. We won on the road when Portis had the flu. We have more depth than people realize.

See you don't know what you're talking about. The injury is several weeks old. I believe he first injured his knee against Bama, reinjured it against Mizzou, then twisted his ankle last night. He went back in the game though but he had no hops after that.

The entire nation will be watching this game collectively pulling for the Hogs. Cats tend to be up for these high profile games. Rupp is going to be unreal because we all know 40-0 is a real potential if we get by Arky.

I say tight through 36 minutes and we pull away by 12 in the end.

This will be the last home game I attend and I'm going to have to leave about 4 mins into the 2nd half. My daughter is in a cheer competition at the convention center (attached to Rupp) and competes right in the middle of the game. Worst timing ever.

You would have to tell Qualls to meet at the airport at 8am as you were taking off at 6am to keep him from playing against UK. Tying him to the bench wouldn't work... He'd just get up with the bench tied to him.

Agreed. These two are the clear two best teams in the conference.


I agree with GoDores as well, Arkansas at UK is far from the toughest test that the Wildcats will face during their quest for 40-0.

No I'm pretty sure SC or Florida is the 2nd best team, or so we were told.

I may be wrong, but I don't see my Cats losing this one.

I would love to see more passes and less dribbling. That my friends is the key to this UK team improving on offense.

I expect us to do well in Nashville for the SECT since it is basically home games. And, obviously I think we'll win the dance.
I think the toughest game will be one where we slack up. Today's game, Georgia away and Florida at home are definitely not gimmes.

I still say Cats by 12.

I gotta say, this UK team surprised me a little today.

I would like to see more passes on those drives by the Twins, but at least they are trying to finish instead of trying to simplify draw fouls.

How about that block by Willie early in the game? I kinds though that moment set the tone for the game.

If we can keep from letting up against Georgia, then I think we may actually run the table.

Thanks to calling ahead yesterday and speaking to security I was able to leave the game with 8 to go in the first, watch my daughter's cheer routine and then get back upstairs for the start of the 2nd half.

Cats won....daughter got 2nd.

Agree. LSU plays us tough. The game is in Fayetteville, but Ark has not won in Baton Rouge in a while. 7 or 8 years, I believe. I'm expecting your team's best effort this weekend!
