    The cats did look dangerous and will be humming come tourney time. I am concerned about the gators. I am not sure how good wisconsin is and I don't think they are very good. So, in come ways I was disappointed we did not pull off the win again UW last night in spite of being undermanned.

    Wisconsin wins 91% of the time in that building. That is against usually full strength teams. That would have been a hard game to win with a full roster. As it was, UF was going to have a tough time winning.

    well- guess depends on how you look at it. I am not into moral victories and having a wait and see approach with the gators to see how they look with a full roster.

    What other option do you have besides a "wait and see approach" when you are down three players, have no backup one nor five, and three more players were not at anywhere near full speed yet?

    Gamblers fallacy. History has nothing to do with the outcome.

    I think Florida and Billy D and his staff deserved to be complimented for their effort last night and game plan. He took a team of Gators who deserved to be there and tried his ass off to come up with a game plan to win. Kudos to all in a tough place to play.

    Jeff, what worried you most about UK's game last night? What impressed you the most (outside of Randle?)

    I came away even more convinced that Julius Randle is really good and the Harrisons were over-rated and move up the recruiting boards to create the story line of Kentucky's recruiting class.

    Benger--what worried me the most? Free throws and getting back on transition. Free throws has been a struggle from the start with this group and we are going to get fouled A LOT! I know Calipari told them he would be in his office and he better hear some free throws going up on their own time. MSU had 21 fast break pts and we had 2--that is a big concern. We seem to be a bit slow, or lazy one or the other. When I think of MSU I dont think "speed demons" so that is a concern!

    What impressed me was our fight in the game. We got down multiple times but kept making a comeback even though we had tons of errors. We seem to have warriors instead of weaklings and Im happy with that. We have a long way to go, but I do love this team.

    It always takes guards longer to catch up to the speed of the game from HS to college. I have watched Knight, and Teague both struggle early. I can remember in Maui thinking how was this Knight kid rated so high? I can remember Teague struggling vitaly in a preseason event as well. The Harrisons will be dynamite when the time is right

    Andrew, UK's point guard, had a good game in my book. He was 3-6 from the field 1-1 from three, four of four at the free throw line, 3 assists and 4 turn-overs for 11 points. For his first performance on a big stage I don't think that is bad.

    For perspective Florida's Hill was 2-11 from the field 0-4 from three, 4 assists to 2 turn overs for a total of 4 points.

    I just don't see how anyone thinks Andrew is overrated.

    If you believe they rate high school kids to create a story is foolhardy.

    edited because I can't type worth a crap!

    Randle is way overrated. I was under the impression that Randle was as good as Lebron, Kobe and Durant. However, after watching last night's game, I can say without a doubt that those guys are all better than Randle - slightly.

    Randle is an unbelievable talent. I know we have Pat Young who is strong and a tough defender. It will be a war. We don't have anybody who can score inside like him and I believe there are only One or Two players as in his league in the whole nation.
    The rest of Kentucky's players are really good. If we don't get some big bodies quick, we will beat down.
