    Default Can someone please refute this with facts?

    I will preface my post by saying that it is from a Kentucky fan on the Kentucky Board so if this gets your knickers in a knot you can bow out of this thread now That way you do not have to subject yourself to “immature, lowbrow” threads. If not, a Kentucky “fan” posted this and I would like to refute it with facts and only facts. Thank you:



    Lost in the first or second rounds every year but 1 from 2008 through 2014. In 2 of the 4 years you mention, you went down in the third round. The only 2 years the Zags kinda earned their stripes were 15 and 17.

    Don’t get me wrong. Nice run for a mid major. But that is all the Zags are. The media and the NCAA have been giving them soft serve for years and they crap the bed. If they had been in a power conference, the seeds would have been more balanced due to the worse performance. This would have put their NCAA performance in a much more realistic light.

    But, it's more than that. This is now the 6th dedicated thread on their board about us, it's embarrassing. They keep trying to delegitimize our success by pointing to our conference affiliation. JAzz sad that Khalid El Amin did the same thing on tv today. It's like we've travelled back in time to 2002, the ignorance and animus is absurd. It is rooted in jealousy though, that's for sure.

    I'm trying to rebut his post with actual facts. Is the "third round" as he put it, the Sweet Sixteen or the Elite Eight?

    It's not just the fact that this part is condescending and elitist, it's incorrect:

    No offense meant but really Spy?.... you and the Kentucky board = train wreck.... we have a great TEAM, a great program and it's only getting better....leave the flat earthers alone... what a waste of positive energy... let them rant and rave.... who gives a chit?

    Just my opinion...

    Spy, I admire you, but you're just wasting your time. Their entire argument is based on the overall weakness of the WCC, and they're holding onto it for dear (rhetorical) life.


    Kentucky is a storied program, one of the bluest of the blue bloods. Kind of like the caste system in India.

    Arizona beat Kentucky in 1997. AZ was not even the Pac 10 regular season champ. And we still beat them. KU fans need to shut the **** up. They are not Duke, they never will be. I hate the SEC, they are a pox on college basketball.

    Cognitive thinking is not a hallmark of the University of Kentucky.

    Scrooner, blah and abe, you literally have nothing to complain about because this advisory for the highbrow poster was given at the beginning of the thread:

    I will preface my post by saying that it is from a Kentucky fan on the Kentucky Board so if this gets your knickers in a knot you can bow out of this thread now That way you do not have to subject yourself to “immature, lowbrow” threads.

    you can't complain about a thread when you were told upfront what the thread would be about. Well, technically you can, because you did, but your complaints fall on deaf ears, because you ignored the advisory and chose to post anyway.

    Not worth it.

    We aren't magically changing a group POV, by a data filled, objective, factual post. Been there, done that. It's forgotten tomorrow and doesn't fit theor narrative/script re: Zags.

    We will like it, they won't care.

    It's more about us right now anyway.

    See, I don't understand that. If empirical facts are opposite of your opinion, why wouldn't you change your opinion? Facts don't care about your feelings. sigh

    I think I’ve actually told you this before but whoever keeps forcing you to open threads and post in them against your free will should be banned from this board permanently.

    Would that not be you giving titillating titles to your threads?

    Mid majors don't fly a charter to every game (UCLA doesn't).

    Mid majors don't generate more program revenue and invest in their program more than any Pac 12 team besides Arizona. Reference this site:

    https://ope.ed.gov/athletics/#/

    They don't make the tournament 20 years in a row (is it 20?). They don't recruit a top 5 recruiting class like the 2019 class at 247sports. The coach doesn't turn down jobs at Indiana, UCLA, Arizona and others. They don't have a multi-million buck TV contract with Root Sports, and are in the top 5 in appearances on ESPN every year. And if what they are doing were so simple, why has no one else done it?? Mid majors don't make the sweet 16 or better 4 years in a row. They don't only lose three first round games in 20 years.

    That being said, follow the advice of others in this thread. These are people who request to be buried in Kentucky warm up uniforms. Many of them are not dealing with a full deck. Some are very drunk on bad sour mash.
