So I know this is of little interest to many of you, but I am still reeling from that win last night over Florida. While I was trapped in rehearsal Hades last night, my Cats decided they weren't going to play any defense. However, following the usual Kentucky suit, they made a huge comeback in the second half. Is it a coincidence that as soon as I started listening to the game in the car on my way home Kentucky started turning the game around? (Hey- that's Ja-wincidence with a C) So here we have a visual example of how much Kentucky students loathe Matt Walsh. I can't stand the kid either (from a purely athletic standpoint) so I found this picture in the KY Kernel HA.larious. Next we have former UK player and current Detroit Pistons star Tayshaun Prince. At every home game during one of the timeouts, the cheerleaders come out onto the floor and spell out Kentucky with the letter signs, and they always have a former player or UK celeb come out at the end and be the "Y." Wish I could have seen Tayshaun in person again, but I guess I'll have to settle for the top 10 highlights in the morning... which speaking of, I have a bone to pick with espn. There was no Kentucky play selected for the day's top 10, and if I am not mistaken, Illinois had 2. The Big 10 is terrible! Of course they are going to make big plays against crappy teams! Why aren't we getting any love from the sportscenter folks? (Can I get an Amen?) If I were Rondo, I would be a little peeved. As you can see from the picture where he is flying over Florida players left and right and scoring on them (notice the infamous Matt Walsh is one of them), this freshman star made several impressive plays last night. And finally, I just had to throw in a shot of fav, Kelenna Azubuike, who also happened to be our leading scorer last night. We are still undefeated in the SEC. This concludes our Wildcat montage for the day.
