Please Give Me Cats vs. Blue Devils

YESSS! It might actually happen. Finally UC could play Duke this year and I can stop listening to pathetic Bearcats fans talking about some tournament in Alaska that happened I was even born.

UC will either face the presumptive #1 Duke Blue Devils or the Penn State Nittany Lions in this years Nasmith Hall of Fame Tip-Off. 

Duke is so much better than UC its actually disgusting, as they should be. The recruiting class the Blue Devils brought in is the best since Calipari brought John Wall and Demarcus Cousins to UK. They are a dominant national brand team that is finally going to get the chance to silence a team whose fans can't stop talking about their seasons in the late 1990's, because that is the late time they had anything resembling notable success (I'll give Sean Kilpatrick a pass. I don't care how you feel about UC basketball, that dude could play). For every UC fan that is excited about this matchup, you're insane. I mean I guess you can use it as a benchmark game to see how you stack up against the best team in the country.

As a Duke fan, I love the matchup. UC will give the Devils a slightly better game than their openers against Marist or Grand Canyon. Plus this will give Coach K a chance to rest his studs after their game against Kansas.

Bring it on Bearcats; I'm dying to see what you got.
