Your LBSU team is a great looking team. I would have liked to seen this game under different circumstances (UK coming off monday night's 2 hour ESPN recruiting video and ensuing celebration & LBSU coming off a monday night overtime game on the west coast then redeye to KLEX). I know our CATS were a bit sluggish and seemed to have their bags packed for Christmas break already. Kudos to the 49ers for exploiting that and not becoming a punching bag.

Win your conference and these early games should have you primed for a good run in the NCAA.

LBSU fans and alumni appreciate your comments and compliments. It indeed would have been a better showcase of the teams relative standings had they been well rested and better focused. LBSU is about a season or two away from making any sort of national impact, but three top notch recruits are on the way which will assist in scoring punch, derth and athleticism. If Wall sticks around at UK for two more seasons and the two teams meet, it could be great fun - even at Rupp.

Wall sticking around for two more seasons is at the top of my Christmas wish-list...but, alas, I haven't been a very good boy this year!

"28,288 roaring fans"? Oh, really? Appearently, Mr. Donovan didn't see the game. Kentucky fans at Rupp Arena, and at Legends, were so stunned at what they were seeing that they were as silent as a church mouse. They didn't wake up until there was about 8 minutes left in the game; that's when Kentucky started to pull away.
