5 Thoughts From the Louisville-Kentucky Game

One of the main reasons I have this website is to be able to voice my opinion and have a forum to do it on. Rather than send 50 tweets or make a Facebook status (which I rarely do about sports anymore) about a particular game, it is easier to be able to make a post on here, where I have all the room that I need. If people choose to read it, then that’s great. If not, well I still survive so it’s OK.

I was lucky enough to be able to attend the Louisville-Kentucky basketball game on Saturday afternoon. Like I did a few times during football season, this will be a post of thoughts from me without watching the replay yet on TV. It is always different being at the game or watching at home, where you can hear the announcers and probably have more information. I am not sure I will watch the game again, but these are just 5 thoughts that stick out just from being at the game and seeing it only once.

When the Cards and Cats take the court on Saturday afternoon in one of the most anticipated regular season games of the season, Kentucky will do so with a significant height advantage. This is a pretty well-known fact, however I feel it is still worth noting. I knew Kentucky overall was just tall, but looking at the heights side by side, it is pretty staggering.

2014 Camp Rondo Information

Slots are filling up for Rajon Rondo’s 2014 basketball camp. Now if you ask why I would post something about a camp for a former Kentucky player, I will say this: I don’t even look at Rondo as a former Wildcat. He is from Louisville, wanted to play at Louisville, and still is in town quite often. Also, there are supposed to be former UofL players at the camp, including Russ Smith. And finally, it’s a basketball camp to help kids out. Have to spread the word on that!

Willie Cauley-Stein does not understand the rivalry

Willie Cauley-Stein clearly does not understand the rivalry between UofL and UK. He said it is the same thing as Kansas and Kansas State. To be fair, Cauley-Stein is from Kansas, but to say it’s the same is a bit ridiculous isn’t it? This is what he said to reporters yesterday.

“I think of it as the K-State-KU rivalry. It’s the same thing. The fans are the same, it’s just different teams. It doesn’t really mean much to you if you aren’t from Kentucky. If you aren’t from Kentucky, you don’t understand it. It’s that simple. I have been here two years and I still don’t understand the rivalry. It’s just fun. If you ask a UK fan about the rivalry and then ask a Louisville fan about the rivalry, they say the same kind of trash talk about each other, but just different. It’s the same thing, just on a different side of it. It’s funny because it’s so similar. They are more alike than what they really think. They say the same things.”

Willie also thinks that the lightbulb haircut was a good idea, so there’s that.
