Hey Kentucky: Does North Carolina scare you?

To get to the Final Four, Kentucky’s most likely going to have to go through North Carolina. The Tar Heels have improved a lot since the Cats’ 80-72 win back in December. Do they scare you now? Chris Tomlin asked fans in Nashville for their thoughts on Roy Williams’ squad.

In case you missed it, last night Matt and Perrin Johnson broke down the entire bracket:

Texas newspaper columnist really wants your attention

Mac Engel of The Fort Worth Star-Telegram wrote a column about the upcoming Kentucky-Abilene Christian game in the NCAA Tournament. He called it, “Abilene Christian will slay John Calipari and his merry band of NBA bums from Kentucky.”

“Take heed you obnoxious followers from Kentucky, ACU is coming to get you, Cal’ and Ashley Judd, too,” Engel writes. “UK is done. Coach Cal has never seen a squad like ACU … with the possible exception of the NCAA investigators.”

The piece is mostly written as satire, so don’t take it all to heart and let it ruin your day. And I’ll give Engel some serious credit for the attention-grabbing headline and the tweet he sent to link his story. He accomplished what he set out to do, which is get people to notice his work.

Hopefully we get a follow-up story Friday afternoon after Kentucky mops the floor with Abilene Christian.

Come see the Cats practice tomorrow in Jacksonville

Going to the games in Jacksonville? Got plans tomorrow afternoon? Kentucky’s open practice at VyStar Veterans Memorial Arena is from 3:25 to 4:05 p.m., so come on out to greet the Cats and see for yourself how bad PJ Washington’s foot injury is and how glorious Ryan Lemond’s hair looks.

Radio show plans for Jacksonville are still to be determined, but the UK Alumni Association is holding a pregame pep rally at 3 p.m. Thursday at Manifest Distilling (960 E. Forsyth St.). There is no cost to attend and all alumni, family, and friends are welcome. Food and drink will be available to purchase and the UK Band and Cheerleaders are scheduled to make an appearance. Kentucky takes on Abilene Christian at 7:10 p.m. Thursday night.

If Kentucky advances, a similar event will take place in the same location on Saturday. For more information, go to ukalumni.net/marchmadness.
