ESPN.com has posted their new bracketology and they have given the Cats what seems to me a very favorable draw. They have the Cats as a 10 seed playing Butler in the first round, a victory gets a match-up with 2 seed Michigan St, with Gonzaga, Miami, and Kansas waiting if the Cats could somehow get to the second weekend. Obviously this is just speculation as anything could happen in the next 3-4 weeks, but if the tournament started this week and we were able to have a draw like this I would feel very good about our chances to reach the sweet sixteen and even the elite 8. I also like the draw of being able to play the first round in Dayton as UK fans would come in droves as Dayton would only be a 2 hour drive from Lexington.
Jodie Meeks was named SEC player of the week after 2 monster performances against Florida and Arkansas. Kentucky will need another big week out of Jodie as they travel to Vanderbilt on Tuesday and come home to play Tennessee on Saturday both of which will have huge implications in the SEC East race.
Also coming this week I will begin my countdown to spring practices with breakdowns of all 12 SEC teams, beginning with Alabama.
That is all for now, have a great President’s day and I will talk to you all later
