Kentucky Named 2nd Most Hated Fan Base In All Of Sports

In life, people won’t like you. A major reason is usually jealousy of success. Kentucky is hated. We’re all aware of that — but not only is Kentucky hated, you are hated. Yes, that’s right. Profascinate, (a site that I’ve came to enjoy), has ranked Kentucky basketball second on their “Most Hated Fan Bases in […]

Basketball Season – So Far Away

Is there any time that moves more slowly than the days following the end of the NCAA Tournament up to the day Big Blue Madness begins?  Oh sure, there are lots of great discussions to be had as fans speculate on the upcoming season, but the off season is a challenging time for the Big […]

UK Softball Headed to WCWS

It’s not football or basketball season.  It’s not time for the cheerleading national championships.  It’s not even NBA Draft day or National Signing day for college football players.  And yet, despite all this, the University of Kentucky Athletics Department in the form of the Women’s Softball team is making history.  For the first time ever, […]

A Roll of the Dice

November 3, 2012, Commonwealth Stadium was a depressing place to be.  Where only 3 short years before, the Wildcats were preparing for yet another bowl game, this SEC match up with Vanderbilt showed how very far the Cats had fallen.   While not yet among the elite of the SEC, the Rich Brooks era did […]

Greater Expectations?

I suppose it’s inevitable for fans to speculate once the season ends.  They wonder which players will stay, which will leave, which staff members need to be replaced, and the annual question of which NBA team is currently interested in Cal’s services.  But as the player announcements have been coming out very slowly, the speculation […]

Karl Towns Is Excited

Willie Cauley-Stein Returning To Kentucky

Per his Twitter, Willie Cauley-Stein will be returning for his junior season. I’ll admittedly say that I didn’t see this coming. I thought it was certainly possible, but various trustworthy folks claimed it was still “up in the air.” Cauley-Stein returning means Kentucky will have tremendous depth in the inside. And if the Harrison twins […]

Basketball Ends, Speculation Begins

As the final seconds ticked off the clock Monday night, my heart grew heavy.  It wasn’t just the overwhelming disappointment at having come so very close to winning the National Championship but letting it just slip away.  It was also knowing college basketball season was over.   After having had games available nearly every day […]
