Kentucky Has Some Life Left

I know I should probably curb my enthusiasm but it's been a rough season so far and this might be my last best chance to get excited. I didn't get home from work untill about 7 minutes to go in the second half but I got to see the end of the game. I haven't watched every game this year but it was the best I have seen them look all year. I have been telling myself that we were not going to come close to sniffing the NCAA's all year...but now? I seriously think that if they can go 10-6 or 11-5 in the SEC which is a good possibility if they continue to play like they did last night and win at least 2 SEC tournament games we should get in. I really hope we get in, it will be devastating not to make the tournament. I was not on board with the Gillespie hiring in the first place, I would have liked to have seen Travis Ford get a chance, but that is in the past now and I hope Billy proves me wrong and brings us six or seven  titles while he is here.

I can remember in years past when there would have been no way in hell I would have been at work when UK was playing a huge game with UT, while there recent decline has helped me out in the fact that I am no longer out of Vacation come April, it is distressing that I don't seem to HAVE to watch games anymore. Lets go UK, build off of that awsome victory last night and make me start pissing away vacation days to cheer you on!
