While UK's loss to Vandy yesterday was but a minor hiccup in the grand scheme of things, it does not hurt Big Blue's chances of winning the national title. Here's the reason why. The last time Vandy beat the Cats in the SEC tourney final,in 1951, UK ended the season by winning the national title. I think this portends well for Coach Cal and the Cats. On the subject of the Big Dance, while the Selection Committee essentially gave the Cats a home game in Louisville for the second round, the Committee did the Cats no favors by giving them a potential match against UConn in the next round. The South Region could be argued as being the toughest region in the Big Dance. Ultimately,though, I think Big Blue Nation is hoping for a matchup versus Duke to avenge the loss from 20 years ago. GO BIG BLUE!!!
