@  BigWinners : (30 January 2015 - 04:48 AM) I like its absolute that UVA would force UK to play their game?
@  UVAObserver : (30 January 2015 - 01:33 AM) That is a big blow. He was to be the big returning offensive threat we had. Now, the talent is there, but we're young all over. And right before start of the season, too.
@  Bearcat Bob : (29 January 2015 - 11:23 PM) UVA baseball dealt a significant blow...Joe McCarthy out for 3 months due back surgery.
@  Bearcat Bob : (29 January 2015 - 11:12 PM) What irritates me is when someone makes statements of "absolute". Especially when there is no way to prove or disprove the statement. To say that UK completely "out athletes" UVA is an opinion, not a fact. Subjective v. objective.
@  BigWinners : (29 January 2015 - 10:27 PM) Will a mod sticky the 2015 football schedules thread so people can just put all the schedules in one place when they are released?
@  BigWinners : (29 January 2015 - 10:24 PM) They are still very young and haven't played together long, they should be okay come March
@  1inStripes : (29 January 2015 - 10:16 PM) To be as talented as UK should be, they really play ugly basketball. Its gonna bite them sooner or later.
@  1inStripes : (29 January 2015 - 10:15 PM) The last 2 links you posted UVAO only took me directly to ESPN oddly enough but I assume TN was one of them. That game surprised me a ton last year because TN was known more for defense and a slow paced offense
@  BigWinners : (29 January 2015 - 10:14 PM) But to just assume that a team that is talented (and plays a very similar style in the first place) is incapable of playing an open game is crazy. Ive repeated how good I believe UVA is, but its like it falls on deaf ears if I am not on my knees kissing their asses. Two of those links were straight to the ESPN NCAAB page for me, but the UDub game showed up. UK is not a run and gun team anyway, they are a defensive minded team. So saying the game will definitely be played on UVA's terms is assuming UK tries something different and UVA makes them play a defensive game. UK will play their game, as usual, which this year is a half court, motion attack. UK will be able to do that, regardless of what UVA tries to do. UVA packs it in defensively in the paint and traps. Like UoL doesnt do that? UK had a lot of success in that game, they played their game while UoL played theirs and UK won. My point, in this whole matter, is that it silly to say that a team as talented as Kentucky could never dictate how the game is played against Virginia. I AM NOT A KENTUCKY FAN, take as many shots at you want at them, I dont care. I hate their fans, they are usually assholes. But they are super talented, and UVA cannot match up with them athlete for athlete. Those are facts. UK has three legit first round picks playing Center, and has size everywhere. UVA can guard them, but UK has the athletic advantage clearly.
@  GMan : (29 January 2015 - 09:47 PM) UVAO...pushin' buttons... http://www.swvasport...e-2#entry321474
@  UVAObserver : (29 January 2015 - 08:29 PM) And as LittleLosers just keeps ferreting the same spiel, I'll just respond in pictures from this point out. Posted Image
@  UVAObserver : (29 January 2015 - 08:28 PM) Literally 3 times in the past 6 seasons has an opponent forced UVA into playing at its desired tempo. In fact, here are the box scores of those games: (1) http://espn.go.com/n...ameId=303260264, (2) http://espn.go.com/n...meId=313552547; (3) http://espn.go.com/n...meId=330470153. And...that's it. Teams just do not force UVA out of its desired pace, and this current team has never (literally) allowed that. UK may win, but it will be played on our terms.
@  1inStripes : (29 January 2015 - 08:13 PM) As evidenced by the T A&M game, UK is forced into playing other teams styles quite often so far this year. A&M plays a little more aggressive defense but what I believe is a similar offense to UVA. Went to Knoxville Saturday and A&M moves the ball so well offensively.
@  BigWinners : (29 January 2015 - 07:50 PM) You are saying UVA would force UK to play their game. UK is not like any team UVA has played last year or this year. To just assume UVA will dictate the game is being a huge homer.
@  BigWinners : (29 January 2015 - 07:49 PM) UK hits three point shots when they have to, see the TAMU game this year and the NCAAT last year. Have you even seen UK play this year?
@  BigWinners : (29 January 2015 - 07:48 PM) So Kansas is a good team? So beating Kansas by over 30 points would be an incredible win, right?
@  UVAObserver : (29 January 2015 - 07:36 PM) And pardon me for thinking that a team ranked 108th in 3-point FG percentage might struggle against the 29th-best defense in the nation at that same metric.
@  UVAObserver : (29 January 2015 - 07:31 PM) BTW...KU lost by 25 to Temple, not 22. And I said "about 87" points, not 40. Reading comprehension fail, part LXXXVII. Newsflash: if your league has a bunch of ranked teams, and you're a good team, you're gonna pick up wins against ranked teams. Derp
@  UVAObserver : (29 January 2015 - 07:29 PM) "Incapable of executing their offense" /= "UK has shown a propensity to not do that every time it steps on the floor". I'm going to have to adjust my position regarding your mental acumen if you can't realize the difference. I simply said that UK will not play its best against UVA, because no team in the past several years, excluding MAYBE VT this year (and only because they're so consistently bad), has played its "best" game against UVA.
@  BigWinners : (29 January 2015 - 07:12 PM) BTW, Kansas has lost three games all year, at Ames against Iowa State, UK, and Temple (by 22, hardly 40) with wins at #17 Texas, #19 Oklahoma, #24 Oklahoma State, @ #21 Baylor, #13 Utah and #20 Michigan State. UK beating them 72-40 is pretty damn impressive, to try and deny that is being silly
