Bring it! Beat you guys once, IU will do it again!
mkillian247 on twitter..... I say a lot of stuff you wont care about.
Oak... It's not happening this time.
I am sure Kentucky has been wanting this rematch for a long time especially since AT&T shows that game winning shot in their commercial.
No kidding. damn. Let's get it on!
i really hope that you guys do beat them again.
Forks down VS a coach that will probably vacate whatever result he has his season because he violates NCAA rules like a stripper does coke. Decision decisions...

The players have stated in interviews that it makes them angry every time they see it on TV, so they have definitely taken notice of the advertisement.
It should be a good game. UK will obviously have a lot of fans in Atlanta, but IU travels well and I think the neutral crowd, for the most part, will root for IU.
Pretend rivalry aside, destroy them an let's have a rubber match in the FF.
Sounds good to me!
I expect a good game and expect the IU fans to travel well but have to disagree about the neutral crowd in Atlanta. I don't know there to ever have been a "neutral" crowd in Atlanta for a Kentucky game. In general, after UK buys up their allotment and their opponent buys theirs, UK fans scramble to buy all the remaining tickets.
This link to a UT blog is interesting
Cuonzo Martin said he couldnt help but notice the scores of blue-clad Kentucky fans in Thompson-Boling Arena on Saturday.

Yeah I read a article about it on rivals how the players said they really wanted that rematch bad
Yea. Well I guess I was more talking about the fans from the other 2 teams that wont sell their tickets. I fully expect it to be a loud crowd in favor of UK.
247's UK site had an article regarding it. It should be readable as a don't see a VIP tag to it.
GAINESVILLE, Fla. - Kentucky credited ESPNs advertising department for helping fuel their march to Southeastern Conference perfection.
Fair enough, best regards and hope to see a great game on Friday.
You 2. Im really looking forward to this and hope its not a blow out. You always have to have confidence in your favorite team!
Yea that commercial worked wonders from different ways. Made the UK and players upset and wanting revenge and showed IU is on its way back and going ot be a serious contender. The positive publicity that IU basketball got from that is something that cant be valued.
Great commercial. Let's play the game. Either outcome will make the respective fanbases quite happy.
As much as I dont like Cal he is saying all the right things so far.
Right now Indiana, we’re better than we were, but so’s Indiana. Tommy’s done an unbelievable job. Think about where that program was and what he’s got that thing going now. He’s got a great recruiting class coming in. So I said this beginning of the year. They’ll be a top five program in short order. Everybody looked at me and thought I was crazy. Shoot, they may be a top five now. They’ve got terrific players. They’ve got competitors. And as far as game preparation, you’re not going to have a better coach than Tom. He’s as good as they get.
He and I talked, and I told him that you were going to be in our region. Before he publicly said, I knew we were going to be playing him. No question. Has nothing to do with match‑ups or story lines or any of that. I knew we would be playing him. What I would hope is we were playing him for the final game, but we’re not. We’re playing in the Sweet 16. I cannot stand playing friends because, if they win, I’m sick after the game. And if I win, I enjoy it, but I don’t enjoy it because I know what they’re going through because I know how it is. But this is two programs that are storied programs, both of them. I can’t again tell you what my respect with how he coaches and preparation. But, Tommy, if you’re watching, I’m putting in new out of bounds plays. I’m going to put in side out of bounds and two new offenses because he will watch every tape and know everything that we’re doing except for that stuff. He won’t know that stuff.
Good comments. Fair and balanced. I'm not anti-Cal as I fear we are more like him than any wish to admit.
Oak, I'm going to take a page from your book when you talk about MSU.
You have no chance. I'm rooting for the other team to win.
Now knowing what 1995 is like all over again! Thank you 247 technology!!
You think Michigan pays players again? Or offers them some type of incentive to go play at their school?
