I'm sure somebody else out there has already asked the question, but I figured I'd do it anyway: How many years till this UK Final Four is vacated?:rolleyes:

LOL!

How awful is it that either Calipari or Calhoun are likely to win a title this year?

Go VCU or Butler!!!!!!

I never used to have a problem with Calipari, but after the stuff at Memphis happened and he quickly jumped ship, I quickly decided the guy is a sleeze ball. While I don't dislike Calhoun I will be rooting for Butler in this Final Four, since my Final Four picks are all entirely busted.

Wow...I'm still in shock. I cannot believe that the team I have rooted for since I was 5 is in the Final Four!

Yeah. I can't help but chuckle that this will technically be Calipari's first ever Final Four appearance, since his previous two were expunged from the record books. Wonder how long this one will stay in there?

It's kind of funny when you think about it that Kentucky made the Final Four this year when last year's team had all that talent, and all of the ethical questions surrounding them. Not to say that this team isn't talented, because Calipari always gets talent, but last year's team was talent stacked.

I like this group of players a lot more then last years group. They are a lot more team oriented then the group of players last year. To be honest I have never seen a basketball player not be hanging out with another teammate (whether its around campus or at a party). These guys truly enjoy the campus, and our great fanbase. I'm not saying Wall, Bledsoe, and Cousins did not care about the school, but this year's group truly loves college basketball instead of coming here of a one and done.

On that note there has been strong rumors around campus that Brandon Knight will play another year or possibly two (He is a very great student and wants to earn his degree). I heard some rumblings about Jones considering staying another year but until I hear officially I do not want to say anything.

I really hope this group stays another year, they are a very likeable group of players and truly deserve this oppurtunity to play in the final four.

Yeah this year's team has had some problems but they have improved every game and are a lot more balanced then the team last year.

I don't think he's going to get in trouble at UK. At UMass and Memphis he had to do some slimey things to get players. In Lexington, the history recruits for him.

You and me both, buddy. Dad went to VCU, sister went to VCU, and I just graduated this past December. As a lifelong Orioles fan it's pretty surreal to see one of my teams actually making some noise.

    • Curve Halt Baysox, 7-0 Bowie stays one game back with Erie loss at Harrisburg.   BOWIE, Md. – Sean Brady tossed a complete-game shutout to lead the Altoona Curve to a 7-0 win over the Bowie Baysox in front of 4,973 at Prince George's Stadium Friday night.   Chris Sharpe hit a solo home run off Alex Wells in the fourth inning to break up the scoreless deadlock, while three RBI doubles by Jason Delay, Adrian Valerio and Sharpe sparked a 6-run fifth inning to put the Curve (29-33) ahead 7-0.    A bright spot for the Baysox (41-21) came from their bullpen, which combined to throw 4 2/3 scoreless innings after Wells was removed from the contest. Francisco Jimenez struck out a pair of batters in 1 2/3 innings, while Brian Gonzalez worked through two clean frames. Zach Muckenhirn completed a perfect ninth inning to wrap up a solid relief effort.   The Maryland Crab Cakes make their debut when they and Altoona square off in the penultimate home game at Prince George’s Stadium Saturday night at 6:35 p.m. RHP Michael Baumann (4-2, 2.31 ERA) faces LHP Cam Vieaux (3-3, 2.27 ERA). The first 500 fans (ages 13+) receive a pair of Bay-socks upon entrance at the front gate.

    • II bet if the kid was an Orioles-fan and had to watch CD stink up the place night after night eating up a large part of the salary budget he would write a totally different letter.
    • Because rumor/speculation has it that Eric was so strung out on heroine that he needed someone to cover for him to make the album...
