So we're off to a good start -- Kentucky won last night, no doubt on their way to another undefeated season!

Time for me to learn all the freshman names before they move on.

And as Exhibit #447 why I hate listening to Dick Vitale, when super freshman Tyrese Maxey hit a shot from about 30 feet to put UK up by five late, Vitale -- in all his incredibly-skillful-and-wide-vocabulary unleashed no less than four "Are you kidding me"s and one "You've got to be kidding me" in about twelve seconds. Wow. What a genius wordsmith that guy is -- what trenchant analysis.

Yes. We expect so little from our public figures these days that the mindless repetition of stock phrases passes for analysis. It was a great shot! Go ahead and exclaim once -- or twice. But ad nauseam? Thank god for mute buttons.


Who to root against in a match-up like Duck v. Kansas, eh?  I was hoping for an outbreak of the measles, frankly.

Hey all, I see that laughedatbytime has changed his profile pic and added some picture to this thread, but I can't quite make it out -- yeah, yeah, it's just a jumbled mess. :D

Much like UK's defending . . . . :facepalm:

Those guys partied like it was March, eh? Still, always nice to see.

Kentucky, Michigan State, Duke -- #1 just looks like big target so far this season. I like parity, myself. Sometimes . . . .

Tie score between SMU- Georgia, with 1.8 seconds left.   Back to back five second calls on the inbounds pass.

Any team that loses 1 player and then goes downhill that much, isn't a very good team. The Buckeyes must still be reeling from the football team's loss because they've lost 4 in a row. They were number 1 not that long ago.

I've watched the Buckeyes a couple of times in conference play and while analytics back up the rankings (even after the fourth consecutive loss they're still #8 in kenpom) they seem to be very limited in terms of offensive options.   Then again, I didn't see them at their best and they have some very impressive wins.

This is the Rush forum, so I'm not willing to make that particular bet... :outtahere:

Vanderbilt was 0-25 from 3 or land vs Tennessee.

You usually don't see anyone that inaccurate outside of the NYPDs rapid response team.
