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.
