Mix of Emotions

Going into the UK – UT game tonight, not many people gave the Cats a shot in this game.  Quite honestly, I did not either.  While I’m elated that the Cats played their hearts out tonight and finished on top of one of the best teams in the nation, one thing irks me. 

“Over – Rated” <clap> <clap> <clap> <clap> <clap>  “Over – Rated”

In all the happiness that this game has given me, it still disgusts me to hear a crowd full of people at Rupp Arena chant that.  Two things a Rupp crowd should never do are: (1) rush the floor and (2) do the overrated chant. 

TGC and I have talked about this many a time.  Why would you say that?  It just says that your team just isn’t that good.  Shouldn’t we want UT to be the #5 team in the nation and say that we’re good enough to beat them? 

Ah, Hell with it, I’m just gonna enjoy this.  Oh, and congrats to Chris Lofton.  All-time SEC leader in 3-pointers and still a fan favorite at Rupp Arena.  Even while wearing UT blaze orange.

    But UT is overrated. They should be #6 or #7. Just saying.

    I think we should chant under-rated in support of Billy G-enius and the boys.

  3. BF Jackson Says:

    Agree. I was kidding about You Tee being overrated. They’re good.

  4. Brewsky Says:

    Never made sense to me either. Well except for in the case of OSU football.

    I don’t have a problem agreeing that Pearl got outgameplanned and outcoached.

    And yes… there is definitely something about that gym you guys got. Great place to see a game.

    Gillespie knows how to get the guys ready for those top teams. And Patrick Patterson is the real deal. It would be awesome to see UK make a run to the NCAA’s and be an 11-seed. The Wildcats being the underdog would be a really interesting story.

  7. Brewsky Says:

    Patrick Patterson works his ass off. He posts with intensity I haven’t seen before. I just wonder how long it will be until refs start crackin down on him, because he is PHYSICAL.
