Missner’s Manifesto: Dissecting Wildcats

(Mark Zerof-USA TODAY Sports) As I was watching the North Carolina-Kentucky game on Saturday evening after work, my mind wandered. The game was not particularly competitive.

Can Anybody Beat Kentucky? Tar Heels About to Give it a Shot

The Kentucky Wild Cats during the early portion of the college basketball season looks unbeatable. They put on a show during the Tip-Off special against Kansas, a game in which they won by over 30.

Louisville has had a real ball hawk in the secondary this season in sophomore defensive back Gerod Holliman.

What the Kentucky Wildcats weaknesses are

It’s not fun to be a Kentucky Wildcats opponent these days. The No. 1 ranked team in the nation has been crushing every team, ranked or unranked, that stands in their way. It’s been so lopsided that it wouldn’t surprise us if the FCC begins labeling each Kentucky game with a Parental Guidance advisory. The ‘Cats have won their first six games by an astonishing average margin...

Best ever? Kentucky combines freshman class with rare returning sophomores… But The Cats Have Been Hyped Before

While the preseason No. 1 ranking has been a recurring reality in Lexington, Kentucky, there has been a bit of a role reversal this year with the Kentucky Wildcats and John Calipari.
