    I take it back, there is NO way Kentucky wins this game if the refs did their job and sent cousins packing.

    I thought IU KY hate each other….KY L'Ville really really hate each other. I hope Teague is watching L'ville….they kinda really suck…today at least….I thought they would be a lot better….

    Teague v J.Davis tonite…should be interesting…

    This game would be very different if the refs took cousins out of the game. he's got 8 points and 11 rebounds. and its an 11 point game….. not that kentucky still wouldnt win. louisville is reallllly playing like garbage.

  • You going?

    Cousins should be out of the game with that thrown elbow. Thug in the first degree.

    Yep…..going to fight the 10degree temps and see JD for the first time live. Wouldn't be surprised if Crean if there….I send you an update.

  • Sounds good. I'll be looking for that.

    When Dumes was a punk throwing elbows CTC sat him for a few games. We'll see what a classless schmuck like Criminalipari does with Cousins—I'm betting nothing. If you watched the post-game interview with Cousins you'd have been even more sickened, as he sat there with this smirk on his face and said, “I was just going for the ball.” I hope he's a one-and-done and tries to pull that on somebody like Dwight Howard next year instead of a guy who's built like a one iron.
