It's basketball, what Kentucky wants Kentucky gets.  BBN just needs to get on Slive and push for the three we want. We didn't last time and we got stuck with Florida.  Tennessee and Vandy have always been our main rivals. Florida is johnny come lately, and they'll be gone when Billy leaves, just like all the other pretenders before them.  Auburn and Bruce Pearl will probably be appealing soon enough.  From a fan v fan standpoint Arkansas should get it.

When I grow up, I want humility to be a cornerstone of my life, just like you PT.

Why should we be humble about it? If they tried to break up the WLOCP for another matchup with better TV ratings wouldn't you get pissed?  Tennessee and Vanderbilt are our main rivals.  Florida is now what Mississippi State, Arkansas, LSU, and Alabama were in stages before.  UK-UF certainly a rivalry right now, but if were talking about etching these 3 matchups in stone I personally like Arkansas as our third. Hog fans get basketball. They don't disappear when their basketball success does. Gator fans do.

Difference is, our football rivalries actually get good ratings.
Rivalries in other sports don't get attention, only big matchups do.

Maybe if Tennessee or Arkansas had been good the last 5 years, you could play them all the time instead of us.
I bet a 2 game losing streak to us would hurt less than a 3 game losing streak.

If the ratings don't matter then give us who we want because were the only fans putting $ into the coffers.  The Lexington and Louisville TV markets are always the Top 2 in the country followed by the Triangle.  If Pearl were still in Knoxville then yeah, probably would have had them.  And when we go to 3 perms, we will.  It will most likely be UT, UF, and someone else. VU is who it should be but we'll see.

As for streaks...meh.  All-time WL, run off 20+ in a row at times, national champ runner up last year, etc.

I said ratings DO matter. Which is why an Arkansas permanent opponent is way more likely than Vanderbilt getting it.
Ratings are the only reason Florida and Kentucky are permanent opponents.

No one gives a feck about national runner up lol.
You got a Final Four banner, just like us.
Except we swept you and broke some of your conference records in the process.




If they keep pairing up the best several teams, the bottom half of the conference is going to struggle even more getting an NCAA bid.

Nobody shows humility on this site including gator fans. Whenever UK gets beat in bball humility is the last thing shown by the rival fans.

Besides, UK takes so much Posted Image during football season that much of our arrogance during bball season is justified

7th SEC title to our 47th. Couldn't give less of a Posted Image.  Took Billy 4 years to build a team that could do that. ...we ran the table two years ago with freshmen....and won it all. As soon as Muschump fails or gets his head out of his ass you'll quit worrying about basketball.

I've always assumed you don't believe even half the bullsh** you post, so I'm going to keep doing that here.

I was bragging about routing UK's record.
