That’s the phrase on the T-shirt of choice for Cat fans who have made the trip to Las Vegas and The Orleans Hotel and Casino for tonight’s game against Kansas State. Above is the view from my press row seat.
So listen to this scam. At 3 o’clock this afternoon, I was at home in Louisville. Now, I’m just a little ways off the Las Vegas strip getting ready to watch UK in a midnight Eastern time game.
With no deadline!
There’s no way to get this game into the paper, so my column, and Brett Dawson’s UK game story, will go on the Internet only. That means no space limitations for us, though we’ll try to get them written fairly soon after the game for anyone who wants to stay up later than they already are. Otherwise, you can find my column on this game at courier-journal.com in the morning, or right here on this blog whenever it is finished.
It’ll be interesting to see how UK looks after a couple of confidence-building wins. I suspect it’ll be a back-and-forth game with Kansas State, which is a bit of a question mark itself.
The Cats’ worst problem has been turnovers this season, and that’s an area where Kansas State excels, so the matchup could be better.
Check back here periodically through the game for updates or opinions. And feel free to email anytime with questions.
Also, let me send a quick congratulations to Bellarmine University and head coach Scotty Davenport, who knocked off No. 3-ranked Florida Southern 62-60 tonight at the University of Southern Indiana. It’s probably one of the bigger non-conference wins ever for Bellarmine.
More to come . . .
