    Actually Victor had many high major offers.


    Well said Jeff , nice jersey comment . I think we play harder , more scrappy , better as a team , and their youth hasnt been to the hall .

    Hulls just needs to stay in front of him and make him shoot. He’s not so good at it.

    I’m from Evansville. I know full well what Kentuckiana is. We did not like Kentuckians so much. And made fun of them when they were doing their “ciphering.” And crashed their bonfires in the boonies. Just tell them you are a 7th cousin and you’re in. The possibilities are endless for kinship.

    I think this game boils down to the simple rebounding. When we decided to “man up” and put our bodies on the line at NC ST, we took the game over on the boards. We have to send 5 to the defensive glass, and box out with authority. Forcing fouls.

    Which brings about the more important item. If this officiating crew treats UK like the home team, we have no chance. We are still waiting for a home court advantage, and this would be a great time to start. If the crew lets them crawl on our backs, we will lose by double digits.

    Ridiculous comment by Fischer, the students help pay his salary and are what keeps the school going. Not to mention as a student Assembly Hall is not a great place to watch a game or wasn’t when I went there. After 3 horrible years you can’t just expect students to rush back, especially for a game like Stetson.

    UK is more talented and much more athletic. It will be interesting to see the game plan for this one.

    The problem is Hulls struggles to stay in front of athletic players. He will have to play way off and hope he misses.

    Not the best opponent to go with a “blue” tongue

    Why wait until halftime? Sooner the better.
