This entry is addressed to every member of the media who jumped back on Kentucky's d**k once they beat Florida. Please, hop off! This Kentucky team thrives on being undervalued. What the hell kind of sports writers are these guys? They only make these "Upset Predicitions" once it is all but guaranteed to happen. I hope to God the committee makes UK a 12 seed in the tournament. An 8 seed is an all but guaranteed loss in the second round...
Projected 5 seeds:
3. Michigan State
Since we played Indiana already this season, and Vanderbilt is in our conference, we would be facing either Drake or Michigan State. I am absolutely ecstatic about this. My opinion is that they would match us up against Michigan State. The last time UK and Michigan State played, there was I believe somewhere around 100,000 in attendance. Before then, it was an Elite 8 matchup, which Michigan State won in OT. I might have the dates backward on that. If Kentucky gets past this opening round game, they would likely face:
I would rather see any of those teams then Stanford. We simply have nobody to match up with their 7 footers. I'd like to see Butler first, then Purdue, UCONN, or Stanford. I believe every one of those first 3 games are winnable.
A Sweet16 this year would be one of the more unbelievable stories in Kentucky Basketball history.
