I will be trying to update this after every game.

I believe anything less then a final would be a huge let down.

This team will run through Diallo in my opinion he has elite talent.

I try to make one game every year. My daughter just started her freshman year at UK and unfortunately I’m out of the country this year. She has already secured tix for the first half of the season; I’m just hoping to have time to go to the LOLville game when I’m home over the holidays.

Of course a Final Four is always nice, but it’s an uphill climb with the youth every single year. Hopefully this unit is a little closer to each other than last year’s group, who I thought could’ve been the best one yet but didn’t really get there (though that UNC game was a bit of a joke).

Hopefully I’ll find a way to watch most games, though they’ll be on in the morning most of the time for me.

Favorite player coming in?

Good luck watching them!

Green as a freshman at the point be interesting to see what he does. Also need to see what richards can do with that size of his.

I like Green. I also think Kevin Knox is going to be a big deal. It’s a big disappointment that Vanderbilt is out.

Kentucky regularly has the best "talent" in the nation, what hurts them is most of the roster usually leaving after their freshman years, but the SEC is typically pretty easy to run through.

Duke by far has the best recruiting class this year, it was a close tie between Duke and UK, but with the addition of Marvin Bagley it just put them over the top.

Is this basketball played with a round ball indoors? LOL

Should be a good year for UK but if some way the trouble that brought down Pitino at UL gets rumors and proven facts would really mess the season up.

Usual stuff with the young guys; really need to learn to play defense and be motivated to do so. Not a great shooting team either. Athleticism will win a lot of games against lesser opponents but I think they’re going to be in trouble in most of the big early games.

Constantly having one and done's means that you'll have occasional years like how this one has started. I'm sure they'll be fine by the end of the year, but they just are pretty far off right now.

Can not wrap my head around someone who is an OSU fan in football and UK fan in basketball. Just doesn't sit right with me. Pick a school already!!! And its really not a surprise they are both traditionally strong schools. Its like being a Louisville fan in football but a UK basketball fan. Nonsense

Leave it to the true queer to make a homosexual comment. Grow up dude. And it's no wonder you don't have a true Allegiance. You don't have an education and didn't go to one of those University's. You just went to Walmart and picked up a baseball cap. If you went to a university then you would understand how to be a true fan.

I understand what you are talking about liking two separate colleges, one in football and one in basketball. But, to each their own. I don't understand the argument that you've tried to make before about you having to go to a college to be a real fan? Did you play sports at Louisville? I'm a die hard OSU fan, but I didn't go there. Yes, I went to college and got a degree, heck I even have a graduate degree, but I never went to OSU. Does that mean I can't be an OSU fan either?

Just my opinion. I feel if you went to a school you have more loyalty to that school. Just like your high school. You don't root for Waverly if you went to Piketon. People root for schools for all different reasons and I get that. I just don't understand how you can root for two different schools with two different sports just because the school that you root for is only good at one of the two. I grew up a die-hard Miami Hurricanes fan. But once I went to school with Louisville I have more pride in that school that I had an affiliation with. But to each their own

Seems like to me the Cats are playing to the talent level of their opponents right now.
They're not as far along as some of the other teams in the past at this point of the season. I think they'll be alright, but they're gonna lose some games.
It will be nice to get Vanderbilt back playing.
