Was kinda hoping they’d face each other one last time before hanging it up for good. Call it Smarmageddon

maybe the big 12 wasn't that good.

Gotta feel for the Bulldogs to lose from a phantom foul at the end, but glad KU could gut that one out.

I just read that Kentucky has has not won an NCAA tournament game in 5 years.  Tho, in 2020 the entire tournament was cancelled.

Imagine going to Kentucky as a student, and never seeing them win an NCAA game while you were there.

Pretty sure the KSU Cats did not play KY in the first round of the 2023 Torn-A-Ment

They are 1-4 in their last 5 games (tying for worst stretch in program history). That includes losses to No. 15 seed St. Peters and No. 14 seed Oakland.

Jay Wright said last night that the "era of freshmen is over" (aka, Calipari's entire program philosophy of one and dones) because NIL will keep kids in school longer.

NIL really has had an interesting impact on the game. Not to get all pit-y but if I’m being completely honest, it’s kind of refreshing to see a rule change where the majority benefited, as opposed to the usual further consolidation of power among the few who are already holding almost all the cards.

That said, I have full confidence the Dukes and Kentuckys and UNCs will figure out a way to game the current system to regain the advantage they have enjoyed for so many years

Honestly just a shame that unless KU goes on a mini run here their 2024 season will only be remembered for a botched call.

For shits and giggles, I bet $10 ML on every underdog in the first round.  Will be interesting to see how it ends up after today.
