Sorry if everyone just already knows this, but I don't see how it's possible that a team has a shorter bench than we do:
How can a team of young punks from a 3rd world, cousin-marrying, mouth breathing, arena named after a notorious racist....how does anyone give them a chance against the best team in the country with the best player in the country?
First of all, what do you know about the kids who play for UK? I bet not a damn thing. Second you have my state twisted bud. The majority of the state may be poor, but get your facts straight before you insult a state. The cousin shit is uncalled for b/c that kind of thing goes on in all types of rural areas. You obviously know nothing about Adolph Rupp either. He has been documented for saying he would have recruited black players before, but the University at the time thought it was a bad idea. You know they did have to go play in places like Mississippi and Alabama. He also had black players on the HS team he coached before coming to UK. Last it's ironic you called him a racist in the middle of your bigoted remarks. Don't spew ignorance it makes you look bad. Fail!
Hit on quite a soft spot I see. Well, you might want to look up some of the words in your post, as you have no grasp of the English language. Pointing out that someone is a racist is not bigoted. That's just good natured ribbing. If you can't take it, go to a UK board - you might be more at home on a 5th grade reading level. I don't care that he's a racist, but the fact that your building is named after him...that's what requires being called out on it.
You all will lose tomorrrow.
I'm not sure what passes for racism in Kentucky, but up here in Columbus...
...well, let me put it this way...if you say things like this....you MIGHT be a racist...
"He said, ‘You've got to beat those coons,’ He turned to (center)Thad Jaracz. 'You go after that big coon.' . . . He talked that way all the time. . . A chill went through me. I was standing in the back of the room, and I looked around at the players. They all kind of ducked their heads. They were embarrassed. This was clearly the type of thing that went over the line." Frank Deford, Sports Illustrated, reporting on Coach Adolph Rupp’s halftime exhortations in the UK Wildcat’s locker room.
"Harry, that son of a bitch is ordering me to get some niggers in here. What am I going to do ? He's the boss." Harry Lancaster, long-time assistant to Rupp, in his book Adolph Rupp As I Knew Him (Lexington Productions, 1979), quoting Rupp on Dr. John Oswald, UK President.
“Once, I was on a flight with Rupp and sat with him in the first-class section. He had about six Kentucky bourbons in less than an hour and was about halfway to the wind. I told him that I was an attorney who represented some basketball players. Now, I had never met the man, and the first significant thing he said to me was, ‘The trouble with the ABA is that there are too many nigger boys in it now.’ I sat there just stunned. That just killed my image of Adolph Rupp the great coach. Maybe it was because he had too much to drink, but even so...” - Loose Balls by Terry Pluto, Simon & Schuster, 1990, pg. 241.
"Rupp liked to say he had tried to recruit Wilt Chamberlain in the mid-1950s, when the 7-foot Philadelphia phenom was the talk of basketball. 'But could I take him to Atlanta, New Orleans, or Starkville ?' Rupp asked rhetorically.” And the Walls Came Tumbling Down (1999, Simon & Schuster) by journalist Frank Fitzpatrick, a long-time staffer at the Philadelphia Inquirer.
