Playing at Midnight

Before I forget, that UK — or any college team from the east or midwest — is playing a game at midnight Eastern is ludicrous and wrong. Period.

Once again, the Worldwide Leader does a disservice to the players. That’s all there is to it. Either way, UK will have less than 24 hours between games here.

“I don’t think that’s any good,” UK coach Billy Gillispie said last week during his news conference, expressing concern about recovery time for the next game.

Just wanted to get that on record.
