Saturday Quickies: Beat Louisville Edition

Please. Beat Louisville.

NCAA Basketball: Bluegrass Showcase-Richmond at Kentucky Jordan Prather-USA TODAY Sports

I sincerely hope all of you out there had a wonderful Christmas and Holiday with your family and friends. I spent the day watching my kids play with their gifts while drinking copious amounts of alcohol.

Now itś time for business. The Kentucky Wildcats have been through a tumultuous week after losing yet again to the North Carolina Tar Heels. CamŔon Fletcher was asked to leave the team for a bit because of a blow-up on the sideline. Terrence Clarke was in a boot this week but apparently he is good to go for today.

And then there is the entire 1-5 record thing. The Louisville Cardinals are on tap for today and the game is in their building which will have about 3,000 fans or so. John Calipari has made short work of the Cards during his tenure at Kentucky. But heś never needed a win against them like he does today. The fan base is fractured and the confidence level in this team is almost zero. If there is one thing to get people and the team back on board, itś a win. Especially a win against the Cardinals.
