Last One Standing

Kansas State pulled off the upset of #1 ranked Texas last night making the Kentucky Wildcats the last undefeated team in the country. The #2 ranked Cats are set up to be the #1 team in the nation for the first time since 2003. What a turnaround from John Calipari taking a team that lost in the second round of the NIT last season to the #1 team in the nation. Kentucky has the talent to compete with any team in the country but they are young. And sometimes that youth can come into play. They have showed that they have had a hard time putting good teams away. They have built double digit leads against good and bad opponents and let these teams back in the game with turnovers and mistakes. But the Wildcats have a favorable schedule down the stretch that have them knocking on the door of history. Check it out.

It is hard to go undefeated in conference play, damn near impossible. I think Tennessee could potentially get us in of the games. And we have historically struggled at Vandy and with Mississippi State. This Kentucky team has the talent to go undefeated but I do not think they will do it. With that being said don't be shocked if they enter the SEC tournament with only one or two losses.
