What I thought would happen before the season started…
@ VA - Loss
@ MN 50-50
@ RUT 50-50
@ PSU 50-50
The rest have gone as I expected. So there’s an unexpected win and 1-2 in the 50-50 games. The other results are as expected.
I think we go 4-1 at home (MSU loss). I think @ MD & MI are...
I said to my son with a couple minutes left the loser can’t complain. Either team could have won by 20 the way the other played. I thought both deserved to lose…wish we could have pulled out the win. But I’m not blaming the refs with the hundred things we did wrong.
I’ve been a JBo supporter/advocate for 5 years. But Kris should be starting and others should be getting his minutes. And it’s not like any of us are saying he should be kicked off the team. He can earn his minutes back.
Pretty even teams IMO. If Iowa had shot their season FT% it would equal 2 more points. If Illinois had shot their season FT% it would equal 5 fewer points (more when factoring in the intentional fouls at the end). That’s a 7 point swing and Iowa win.
I thought CJ was going to be an outstanding player. But he’s hurt…or thinks he’s hurt…more than he’s healthy. So his departure is not going to hurt us IMO. And I doubt he’s going to help Kentucky much.
