I forget what year it was but one year we were killing Pitino and UK by like 20 at the half. IIRC Pitino said something to Roy (who had taken his 5 starters out) and it wasn't very nice. So Roy put all 5 starters back in and we won the game like 150-50 or something insane like that.

1989 Dec. 9th. Kentucky was in the first year of their NCAA violation sentance, stripped of all but three scholarships. Pitino's first year in Kentucky, left in scandel and shambles by Eddie Sutton. And Kansas has just come off a National Title. Just keeping it all in prospective. I'm not a Kentucky fan, but am for keeping all the facts straight.

On April 18, 2009, Pitino announced that he was a target of an extortion attempt. On April 24, Karen Cunagin Sypher, the wife of Louisville equipment manager Tim Sypher, was arraigned and charged in US District Court with extortion and lying to federal agents.
Cunagin told Pitino that she was pregnant and wanted to have an abortion, but she did not have health insurance. Pitino paid her $3,000 for an abortion. In addition, Cunagin stated that her estranged husband, Tim Sypher, was paid to marry her.
August 2010, a federal district court found Sypher guilty of extortion and lying to federal agents, carrying a maximum penalty of 26 years in prison.

Enjoy losing in the FF, because that's what ohio state does. Lose when it counts. Usually to an SEC team. If you somehow get by UNC/KU then you'll likely get to lose to an SEC team so at least you'll be familiar with the drill.

If someone had wanted to place a bet for me, six weeks, ago on Louisville's performance , I wouldn't have let them. But they are playing outside themselves since the Big East Tourny started. Fun to watch, but I think Kentucky or Baylor will be their undoing.

Well you guys sodomized them in December even with Sullinger they lose that game. What i've seen from Ohio State this year kind reminds me of North Carolina they'll fold if they get down.I think they're definitely a tougher team than UNC. They actually play defense and aren't scared to get physical.

Kenpom hasn't released his final four odds yet, but with only 4 teams left, it is not difficult to do the math.

KU's odds against:

Kentucky: 37.78%
tOSU: 37.78%
Louisville: 63.58%

Louisville's odds against either tOSU or Kentucky: 25.8%

Kentucky vs tOSU: 50/50 tossup (both have same pythag, and its a neutral site)

Given that, you can calculate all the possible outcomes and reach this for national champion odds:

Kentucky: 40.53%
tOSU: 34.99%
Kansas: 16.79%
Louisville: 7.69%

Although Kentucky and tOSU are rated roughly evenly by kenpom, Kentucky has the better odds because Kansas is tougher to beat than Louisville.

So this season ended on a disappointing note, but with Adonis Thomas coming back and Shaq Goodwin joining the team, Memphis will have three McDonald's All-Americans and a rotation consisting primarily of upperclassmen next season. I'd almost go so far as to call the team loaded; hopefully their experience this year will help them deal with the pressure of whatever preseason rank they end up with.

In Jordan's book For The Love of The Game: My Story he talked about this. He credited college for the player he eventually became. He said if it weren't for his three years at UNC he wouldn't have reached the level of play we marvel at to this day. Since then I have heard him say with quite consistency that players should stay in college longer than they do. FWIW, Dean Smith had to talk MJ into leaving after his 3rd year. He wanted to come back.
