A tad lower wouldn't hurt-they need to stay really, really hungry. Like the girls say "just come home HUNGRY." Yeah!

It's hard to see how being 3rd in the country is under anyone's radar! Go over to Duke message boards, and you will see that we have their attention. They had a four page discussion about us just a few days ago.

Looks like there's a chance we'll move up a game on the all-time point shavers tonight; UK trails Penn by 10 with 3 minutes to go in the first half.

Kentucky has to go to Georgia on Saturday, January 8th----a very tough road game for the Wildcats. We'll see if they wet their pants that night!

Well funny enough... They are called the "kiddie-cats" by their local press so wetting their pants isn't out of the question!
