    Who do you think wins? I like my team. Obviously this game means literally nothing in the grand scheme of things....but I'm wanting the good guys to pull off the upset. Let's go CAYutts

    KU by 12. heard they're a 2 1/2 pt favorite. Cats just too green right now, trying to learn the system and where they fit in the system.

    This one could go either way. Kansas has more experience

    If they don’t defend and rebound better they’ll lose by 20. Every year, the same thing. Young and I️ experienced. Good for them to see a team as talented and more experienced. Go cats

    The spread hasn't moved at all hardly and everyone is piling on Kansas. I think Vegas knows the cats are gonna put a beat down on these chumps.

    The cats are young and I could see it getting ugly, but I'm cautiously optimistic. I like my team.

    Does anyone else hate jay bilas and duke as much as I do? Its beyond annoying watching this side show.

    I think KU wins but hope to proven wrong. This game will be good experience for the cats though.

    KU is the 5 point favorite. Michigan State is the 1 point favorite over Duke.

    I hope UK wins but I just don't know this early in the season.

    Agreed. My brother has convinced me that coach cal really doesn't care about these games at all. Yeah he obviously wants to win, but to lose would be water under the bridge come march. The cats are athletic and have serious depth, I'm just worried about shooting this year. Hopefully this young team can morph into something special between now and march.

    I got a bad feeling we get blowed out. Hopefully I’m wrong.

    I ain’t skeered... Cats in a close one... win by 3.

    We’ve been there before ... look like crap leading up to it... but somehow Cal has the ready to play. Which Kansas may have some more experience out there.... it’s early in the season for them too.

    If we do loose... it will make them better.

    I hated UK lost but they showed they can stay with one of the top teams in the country. If they was to play KU again this Saturday UK would win. Ever though they are a young team they are good enough and only have to play more games. Like I said, I hated they lost but I feel much better about the team than I did the first 2 games.

    I thought they done good considering the youth.Lack of hustle for the loose balls in the first half hurt em real bad.When they get it figured out ,they’ll be hard to handle.

    I agree to that.

    Which the way things were looking early in the game, I thought this was going to be a blowout.

    I liked the fact they settled down and made it a game for the most part..... and if we had rebounded in the first half ....could have been a different outcome.

    Hopefully this will bust a few ego's as well and aid in some adjustments.

    The one thing though were short on is a go-to "shooter"....just not seeing it. Sorta thinking maybe the Vanderbilt kid if he ever gets released to play could add another dimension to the team.

    Also think we need to see more of Winyard ....I thought he actually was a good physical presence inside. He just needs more playing time.

    Overall.... it was a loss but no way a blowout.

    It's been a long time since I've felt this good about a UK loss but I was really expecting a beat down. Cats played better than I thought and Kansas looked worse than I thought. I think the long arms of Kentucky caused them some problems.
    If these boys will stop beating their chest every time they make a basket maybe they can start playing the game.
