Can we all agree that this has been the most boring week in Kentucky Wildcats atheltics news wise since the summer? I think we can because literally no news is coming from this game, or no excitement. I’m sure Rupp Arena will be filled, but yeah, nothing worth noting going into the game besides the work ethic or “bounce back” game of Terrence Jones, it will be interesting to see how he will react.
A 32 point line has been put on the game in favor of the Kentucky Wildcats. I always like to follow the lines, even if I don’t gamble because they are always interesting how close the Vegas guys get to nailing the score. One website I pay attention to says the Chattanooga Moccasins won’t even cover the 32 point spread. Here is his view on the game:
“Well, this has all the makings of a blowout because Kentucky is coming in off a loss and Chattanooga is not real good while the Wildcats are obviously ten rungs better. UK wins and names their score and don’t be surprised if they try to embarrass the Mocs. As for me I won’t give away all the points but I’m not surprised if this is over by the half…” Read the rest here: http://sportschatplace.com/college-basketball/mark/2011/december/17/kentucky/chattanooga/
If it helps you get ready for the game at all, here is a Foxsports preview of the Wildcats vs. The Mocs tonight: http://msn.foxsports.com/collegebasketball/story/ChattanoogaKentucky-Preview-39686244
If you need to watch the game tonight, I have bad news, I only know of two places to watch it on Dish and Direct, here they are: Dish Network – HD channel 429, non-HD channel 420
DirecTV – HD channel 631. Hope that helps.
Finally I always like to end with something non-UK related and pretty funny/outlandish and today is no different. We all knew “Tebowing” would get out of hand some time, well, a couple of high school students got in trouble for orchestrating a school wide “Tebowing” affair and were swiftly brought to the office for it and suspended from school.

I’m out guys. Follow me on Twitter @JNorth0 and be sure to tune into IHeartRadio Lexington 630 WLAP for Oscar Combs and the gang for the preview of the game, and you can always listen to the starting line-ups which I always enjoy.
