Kentucky Upset

4 posts in this topic

I bet Tubby is sitting back relaxing in his office on University Ave. watching highlights of Billy Gillespie's Kentucky Wildcats lose to Gardner-Webb in the 2K Sports Coaches Vs. Cancer Classic.

I remember Gardner-Webb came into the Barn and beat the Gophs a couple years ago on a late 3 pointer...

I'm sure there will be more upsets throughout the season, but this one certainly is a big one in terms of david-goliath size of program comparisons, like Michigan - Appalachian State in college football earlier this fall.

Michigan State lost their first exihibition game to D2 Grand Valley State last week. I'm an MSU fan, so my opinion might be a bit slanted, but these are no where near the upset of Michigan football by App State. App State kept Michigan out of the National Championship picture. Both MSU and Kentucky basketball records sit at 0-0 today.

No, it's probably not as big as Applachian State Michigan, but its similar as far as school size and recruiting power is concerned. THe winningest program ever versus a nobody. Granted Kentucky was only ranked #22 and they have the whole season to recover.

It wasn't 1982 Chaminade-Virginia or any of the tournament upsets like 1998 Valpo-Ole Miss or 1993 Santa Clara-Arizone but it is an early season heavy hitter upset.

But, it was not an exhibition game. It was a tournament game so KY drops to 1-1.

Big upset or no, I still like the omen:

Tubby leaves KY, the Wildcats lose when they are expected to win.

Tubby comes to MN, the Gophers...

      The walleyes that spawn at the Pike River dam are supposedly only about 5% to 8% of the walleyes that spawn on Vermilion. The rest spawn in other rivers, creeks, reefs. and  on shorelines. Cliff

      Assuming the ratios given to Cliff by the hatchery are accurate, then:   With Hatchery:  708 quarts X 100,000 eggs is 70,800,000 eggs.  Survival rate is (low end) 75%, so total fry is 53,100,000.  If 10% go back into Vermilion, that's net +5,310,000 new fry this year.   Natural reproduction:  70,800,000 eggs at 3% (high end) survival rate would be net +2,124,000 for vermilion this year.   5,310,000/2,124,000 is 2.5X the walleye fry in vermilion this year compared to natural reproduction.   I'd take a 250% return on pretty much anything!     Ancillary benefit is +47,790,000 fry to other MN waters.     I'm sure there's a downside, but I can't see it.

      We got onto the ice down there this winter one time and it was really easy to get on and off of the ice right there.  Looked very friendly for boat traffic and the way the rocks jog out to protect the access it is on my hit list if I need to find an access to launch from this summer.  If you use google earth you can check it out.
