Kentucky is 33-0. A great team worthy of all its accolades. Arkansas is 26-7, a blue collar team that has to scrap fro everything. Kentucky has 9 McDonald's All Americans, Arkansas has one. No one on Arkansas team would likely start for Kentucky. Arkansas does has the Sec Player of the year in Portis, and the most explosive athlete in the SEC, in Qualls. Kentucky has Freshman of the year and most likely the First pick in the lottery in Towns, and the Defensive player of the year, in Stein. The depth of Kentucky is their biggest strength. Wave after wave just wears a team down while the massive height along with athletic play of the big just overwhelms teams. Kentucky should win but sometimes what should happen doesn't. Still it's two proud programs on a hell of a stage. Should be fun.

It will be interesting that's for sure. On KSR they said some of the Arkansas team ran over to the UK tunnel talking trash as UK was leaving the court.

Apparently Portis got his wish by getting another shot at Kentucky.

Let's hope these guys just play ball tomorrow. It doesn't sound like they like each other very much.

We don't need any issues going into the NCAA.

We heard it was UK trash talking the Hogs.

Also heard that UK fans are referring to the Hogs as the Ferguson on college basketball. Not sure what that means?.

I just want a fun game. If UK beats us because they are better that's cool. If Hogs pull off a miracle even better. Just no injuries. It was no fun seeing Madden get injured in the first half and poor Georgia is like a trauma ward.

Some people are idiots. I'm with you Joe, I hope for a hard fought, injury free game.

I don't understand why the Arkansas team would run over to the UK tunnel.

It makes no sense since they had to focus on a good Bulldog team.

It will be a great #1 vs a very good #2. The odds are in your favor.

I'm ready for our 2nd chance. We swept them last year with the same teams.

Anything is possible.

I would be thrilled with a win tomorrow and a 1 and done in tournament.

I think both teams have more wins in them.

You can't be serious Bubba. Ya never want to be one and done.

I do believe it'll be a battle and it's gonna be fun. If we are going to lose,I hope it's tomorrow. Of course I don't want to lose at all. But if we have to lose one better now than later.

I'm sure the Hogs were being mean to our wholesome, God-fearing boys. Good over evil. Go Cats!

No I'm serious. Make the tournament 1& done who cares. Although it would be disappointing to have beaten UK then lose to a scrub I would take it.

A win vs this years UK for the sec championship would be historic.

A loss in round 1 is what everyone expects anyway. Outside of Arkansas. Whether they lose or not. I'd take the SEC Championship win instead.

Same teams???? So Booker, Towns, Ulis and Lyles are sophomores.

I don't expect a one and done. I expect to go deep
Why do you continually discount this team?
I got my Reds on.

Jacorey is a surprise starter.

Stein is tall.

Is Arkansas really analogous to David in this matchup? They're one of the top 20 teams in the country. It's more like Shaq vs. Goliath.

Another wcs over the back knocks Harris to the ground no call.

Joe I did find myself laughing that Towns is double teamed but the SECPOY is played man to man.

Towns is the better player no doubt. I do not know if Joe would agree with that or not, but Portis deserved the SECPOY. He had the stats to back it up.

Town will be the #1 pick. But for the season Bobby deserved his POY.
WCS deserves TMVP.

UK can win the triple crown. SEC, SECT, and NCAAT.

joehogjoe

Really XPS what does Towns being double teamed have anything to do with him and Portis. We lack the depth and players UK so we play how we must

Bobby may well be back next season.
