Over the course of the next four days, I would say most Kentuckians are having difficulty focusing on anything but the “Battle of the Bluegrass” that is to take place Saturday night in “Blue Orleans”. My Facebook news feed is filled with jabs from one side of fandom to the other and although I try to refrain from participating in the “dark-side” madness, it is hard to sit back and say nothing while dirty-birds chirp.
Do I think it will be a competition? Yes. Do I think the Kentucky Wildcats will come out victorious? ABSOFREAKINGLUTELY!!! It isn’t because my biasness of a ‘Blue and White’ fan since as far as I can remember, well, maybe a little bit, but the fact that we have the better team. Over the past twelve years of watching college basketball I haven’t seen a team as athletically pleasing or defense/offensive dominant. You could consider the back-back Florida Gators (2006,2007) or North Carolina Tar Heels (2005,2009) as potential to being this good, but they had squads filled with juniors and seniors. I do not go back farther than that because that takes us back into the 90’s and I was more focused on watching the NBA and Michael Jordan take over and the fact that Kentucky was dominating during that era with Ricky P at the reins.
If a matchup could take place, who would you like to see this CATS team take on? Personally, I would like to see what they could do to the ’96 CATS given a time machine…
