Here’s the poll in full:

1. Michigan State
2. Oklahoma
3. Kansas
4. Maryland
5. Virginia
6. Xavier
7. North Carolina
8. Arizona
9. Iowa State
10. Duke
11. Kentucky
12. Butler
13. Purdue
14. Providence
15. Louisville

How well do we know Coach Cal’s Wife, Ellen?

Couch Cal is a “famous” man!  Not only in the state of Kentucky but in the US!  Mrs. Ellen Calipari may be the sweet woman who will help a stranger pay a food bill or bake brownies, but DO NOT ask her to take your picture with her husband! lol

Breaking Cardinal Rules

Many rumors and thoughts are going around about what Katina Powell has written in her book, “Breaking Cardinal Rules”.  Speculations have arose all over the state of Kentucky, however, Chrismtas gift ideas have also came of Louisville’s “newly” found issues!

Sweeping off the Internet and book store shelves, Kentucky and Louisville fans alike are currently purchasing many copies of “Breaking Cardinal Rules” as Christmas gifts!

You can even get an autographed copy of the book at thekentuckyvintage.com !

Cats go up against Ohio State this coming Saturday!


UK’s next game for the 2015-2016 season is this coming Saturday December 19th.  Let’s go ahead and assume the Kentucky Wildcats win Saturday’s game! If Kentucky beats a very depleted Ohio State team on Saaturday, that will give the Cats a 48th win in their last 50 games, which is an extremely rare and amazing feat!!

Do you think the Cats stand a chance against Ohio State?!  Do you think they will receive that 48th win in 50 games?!

Calipari heads to Massachusetts

coach cal

Tomorrow night, John Calipari will have his jersey retired at UMass as part of the program’s 20th anniversary celebration of the 1996-1996 Final Four team.

Today, Cal and his family will head to Boston for a dinner with his former players and UMass family and on Wednesday, they’ll head west to Amherst for the big festivities. It’s been a big year for Cal, and even though his haters continue to come out of the woodwork to bash him, tomorrow night will be a celebration.
