Here is the prediction thread for the Lafayette game on Friday.
The following link will open the Prediction Summary Table
I just want to reiterate my feelings about Duke. F*** Duke, I hope all those elitist a-holes get what's coming to them. I hope Ratface doesn't get any cheese for Christmas and Santa brings all those devils switches.
Okay, Cats by a lot.
Upon the chance that I will be ripped apart by fellow UK fans I would like to state that I dont hate Duke and I feel coach K is a great coach and a very gracious person. I know how some UK fans feel about certain programs and believe me I dislike Christian L. as much as the next person but I dont hate other programs just some of the things their fans say and do. Im not a big fan of Bobby Knight, in fact I dont like him at all but he no longer coaches at IU. It is your right to hate anyone you want but I feel that coach K is what I said earlier a great coach and a good man. So go ahead and call me a traitor or whatever else you want but Im not afraid to tell the truth the way I see it.
I'm not going to call you a traitor at all. As a matter of fact your stance on K isn't unusual. However, I suggest you go learn more about him and his actions before your form your final opinion. The guys is sleaze 100%. Oh, and I'm not a UK fan who called Cal that before he made his way to the Bluegrass. I like and appreciate other coaches. K isn't one of them. If you don't have time to research on your own then PM and we will work something out so you can find out how shitty Ratface really is.
I too was a Cal fan before he came to KY in fact I wanted him when Tubby was finally gone but we got BCG instead. I only know what I have seen on video and in articles on the internet and yes even in printed form. I saw how gracious he was right after the great game we lost to them 20 years ago, but I guess its easier to be gracious when you are the winner but from what Ive read and heard those whose opinions I respect about him those are the only things that I can form my opinion on. But you have to admit that there are KY fans that hate any program thats not KY. There are certainly coaches and teams that im not crazy about but I dont hate them.
I agree with this about hate. The only team I reserve true hated for is Duke Basketball
Well, throw in UT football. That's it. I don't hate Duke because of CL, I hate them because of K.
