Lots of fun in here -- some hate, some love, some jealousy, and lots of other weirdness. Have fun with it. Big win for the 'Cats yesterday.

Cats have the talent, will to win | KentuckySports.com
They can overcome immaturity, bad shooting, careless turnovers, and poor decision-making, even by the head coach.
"The worst timeout I've ever called," John Calipari said.
Great stuff by John Clay.

I admit it. I was skeptical.
Let's face it. It wasn't as if Kentucky has torn through an imposing schedule – especially in hostile environments – thus far this season.
The "true" road wins came at Indiana, Auburn, LSU and the most impressive one prior to this week being in Gainesville against a Florida team that could wind up making a third consecutive NIT appearance.
Now, I am a believer.
Jeff Goodman is a skeptic no more.

"I love this," Calipari said. "Shooting 35 percent and 18 (percent) from the three and winning anyway."
Heh. Yeah, kinda cool.

UK-Vandy notes: Patterson's tenacity comes just in time | KentuckySports.com
When asked whether Patterson was answering the coach's long-standing request for more assertive play, Calipari said, "Yes, he is. And it's coming at a good time."
There is nobody, nobody I want to see succeed more than Patrick Patterson.
UK hoops notebook: Crying foul over UK bias | KentuckySports.com
I have never read an article full of such blatant, bulls**t whining in all my life. I watched that game, and I guarantee you the calls that went UK's way just as often go against them. MSU was called for ten fouls because they were hacking away at UK, and why not? UK couldn't make a free throw. When that happens, fouling is a good strategy.
Somehow, nobody got that. Unsurprising. Every one of these grown men claiming UK gets the calls should be ashamed. They are little more than sore losers, and losers they are.

Joker's first class includes pleasant surprises | KentuckySports.com
The strong last-minute finish drastically changed the outlook of UK's recruiting class, which was ranked as low as 77th by Rivals.com last week. Kentucky's class is now ranked 46th by Scout.com and 49th by Rivals. Both services have the Wildcats' haul rated 11th in the Southeastern Conference.
I can't recall the last time UK had a recruiting class not ranked in double-digits in the SEC.

Don't tell these young Wildcats they're supposed to lose - NCAA Division I Mens Basketball - CBSSports.com
And do you see a collapse coming?
Yes, the Wildcats tend to put themselves in bad spots, find themselves in situations where they ought to lose. But with exception of that one Tuesday night last month at South Carolina, they consistently make it out OK. Watching Kentucky is like watching an action movie starring Bruce Willis. Doesn't matter whether the Wildcats are in the Humphrey Coliseum or Nakatomi Plaza, they always figure out a way to escape unscathed.
Heh. Yes, they do.
