We’re going to end our Cheerleaders of the Final Four preview with the tournament’s odds-on favorite: the Kentucky Wildcats. I think we all expected the ‘Cats to be here, so it’s no surprise the Bluegrass State is taking over Bourbon Street.
What do we know about Lindsey? She’s about to have her cheerleader routine analyzed by 75,000 fans at the Final Four. And on TV. And on the Internet. Saturday’s 6:09 p.m. EST tip is just the biggest game in Kentucky basketball history. Sure, it’s not for a national championship, but most people feel that if Kentucky gets through this game, the title is theirs. Bragging rights and a title in Lexington would pretty much be the ultimate insult to Louisville.
Lindsey would love nothing more than to rub it in Redbird Nation’s face.
Get To Know Your Final Four Cheerleaders: Lindsey
• Grew up just outside of Cincinnati on the Kentucky side
• Loves her some Miranda Lambert
• Like a good Wildcat fan, she HATES Louisville

Losing his starting job hasn't kept Kentucky senior Darius Miller from providing the leadership that has kept the freshman-laden Wildcats on track for a national championship.
When the freshmen needed help finding their classes, Miller was there. When it was time to work out, Miller made sure everyone was on time. When he needed to sit for the good of the team, Miller took a...
Kentucky coach John Calipari likes to say there are no rivalry games at this point in the season.
Try telling that to the Bluegrass State, where basketball's version of the civil war - Kentucky vs. Louisville, winner plays for the NCAA title - has so divided the small state that senior citizens have actually come to fisticuffs.
Basketball purists may argue that Duke-North Carolina...
Stop Criticizing John Calipari
Kentucky head coach John Calipari has taken his team to the Final Four in back-to-back seasons. It is well documented that Coach Cal has had issues with the NCAA in the past. His trip to the 1996 Final Four with UMASS has been stricken from the record as was his trip with Memphis in 2008. Louisville fans are having fun at the expense of Calipari as...
Kentucky Wildcats fans have a lot to be excited about in the present, as they’re taking on their hated rival Louisville in the 2012 Final Four, but last night’s McDonald’s All-American Game also might have made UK fans think about the future for a bit.
Usually, you don’t think about next year’s recruiting class until the season is over. However, the way incoming UK freshmen...
NEW ORLEANS—The Kentucky Wildcats may be favored to win this year’s national championship, but if they plan on going out to play basketball against in-state rival Louisville on Saturday, they’ll first have to complete their diorama for Professor Keating’s Native American Studies course that is due next Thursday.
“They know the rules,” said Kentucky coach John Calipari...
The Kentucky Wildcats have looked unbeatable in their run to the final four. As well as they are playing I don’t know if some of the bad NBA teams could beat them. There is really no weakness to their game right now. Guards Marquis Teague and Doron Lamb are playing their best basketball of the season. Anthony Davis and Michael Kidd Gilchrist could be the first...
(Eds: APNewsNow. With AP Photos.) By COLIN FLY AP Sports Writer The two most important men in Michael Kidd-Gilchrist's life will be on display on Saturday night at the national semifinals in New Orleans. They're the two names sewn into the back of his Kentucky jersey.
The quiet freshman will be playing for his family when Kentucky (36-2) faces Louisville (30-9) on Saturday...
The Kentucky Wildcats are the top ranked team in the nation. Nobody can really argue with their #1 status. They have a guady 36-2 record heading into this Final Four. They’re but a few better sequences away from being unblemished and chasing history in New Orleans. Had they hit their free throws in the final minute in Bloomington, there is no Christian Watford game winner, and...
Let's be honest. Kentucky has a lot of weapons. John Calipari's offense makes that a necessity. He recruits so that he has four players on the floor who can attack off the dribble, and he recruits at a high enough level that he can force mis-matches with his elite players. Terrence Jones, when he's on, can be a point-forward matchup nightmare. Anthony Davis doesn'...

Via @Kristin_WallsThe Kentucky Wildcats and Louisville Cardinals are about to match up in one of the most important games in this bitter rivalry. We’ve all heard the story about how a Cardinal fan and Wildcat fan got into a fight at a dialysis center.This scene was more about state pride as the twin spires lit up the night.
The Hunger Games is doing amazing at the box office and everyone is loving the movie. One of the stars of the movies, Josh Hutcherson, is a huge Kentucky Wildcats fan and even painted his face before a game. You can guess who he is rooting for in the Final Four.
Rick Pitino and John Calipari. If you haven’t heard, they are coaching against each other in a rather big game this Saturday. Two teams from the same state have never previously played each other in the Final Four. And this isn’t just any state, it’s Kentucky; where they don’t care much about football, baseball, or hockey.

Kentucky coach John Calipari insists “my friends and family” probably want him to get his first championship even more than he does.
