UConn fan here.
Interacting with Kentucky fans is like cleaning clogged toilets - they're completely full of ------- and if you try to make them right, you end up getting crap all over yourself.
I'd much rather have you beat us and then beat Kentucky than have us beat you and then get beat by Kentucky.
On the other hand, I am cheering for Calipari to get to his second final four appearance, and then have it stand for a bit.
UConn this year has had many ups and downs. We run a 3 guard offense a lot, and our #1 guy off the bench, a point guard, was ineligible at the beginning of the year and then again for several games in the middle of the year. Coach himself missed a bunch of games. Point is, we have had horrible continuity all year. Further, we have the 8th youngest team in the country, and that shows.
Recently, however, we've been on a small roll. We finished with a couple of decent wins, and then lost to Syracuse by a bucket in a game we were up 10 or so in the 2nd half.
I think it comes down to this - make your 3s at a good pace and you'll probably beat us - we're horrible at defending the 3.
Don't make them, and you'll be in a dog fight.
And if you beat us, I want to be sworn in as a deputy Iowan to root against the slimeballs you'll face in round 2.
Good luck, congratulations on making the tourni, and I look forward to getting to know more about your team in the next few days (I know you shoot lights out, which means you're a bad matchup for us!).
I think it's as simple as this - hit your 3s and you beat us.
Honest post. Good luck in the tourney.
Clone to the Bone with the up and coming IOWA STATE.
I'm not here to argue with Uconn fans. If i was id go to the Uconn board. I'm here to talk to my fellow cyclone fans about their upcoming matchup against Uconn. I am the one who introduced the "quiet please" sign at ISU games introduced towards the middle of the 2007-2008 season. The guy who holds it up now is a part of cyclone alley committee.
Don't know about the rest of it, but the quiet sign during free throws is not held up by a cyclone alley committee member
