Kentucky Upset

Recommended Posts

Scott M

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...

      "Kelly looks like you need an extension for your dock."   But I don't think I have to worry about any boats hitting it.    It should be an interesting Opener.

      A truck broke through Birch Lake the other day in like 20fow, an ATV broke through Prairie Lake and a man lost his life. The ice is deteriorating RAPIDLY. There will be some ice chunks, but I firmly believe there will be more open water than ice by May 12.  Temps up here are forecasted near 70 for a few days next week.

      Looking at the beach cam there is a lot of ice on shore. Don't know how far that goes into the water though.  Last week in April- first week in May is when I come down to seine.

      Well you learn something new every day! I always thought it was mad made. Makes sense now why it formed now.

      Drove through last week and noticed the ditches didn't have much water compared to other years. Kelly looks like you need an extension for your dock.

      I hung it up last Saturday. Could have gone on Sunday but choose to spend time with my Grandson instead. Need to meet up with the guys over in central Mn. one of these days.

      I don't know if Lucas has a marine gear oil.   AMSOIL Synthetic Marine Gear Lube is what I pick. I like Mobil 1in my cars and trucks but again I think your going to want to go with an oil formulated for marine use.   The NMMA FC-W rating.   Four Stroke Cycle Water Cooled.

      Just for fiun I went to wunderground.com and looked at the weekly averages for 2014, 2016, and 2018 starting the beginning of march.  2014--May 13 ice out 5  25 20 14 29 38 29 39 39 44 44 56 2016-April 25 17 38 34 30 34 25 43 47 41 52 46 49 60 2018-??? 21 24 24 26 17 26 33.... Looks like we are behind 2014 with respect to getting average temp above 32 if that is significant, although the weeks don't line up exactly and we are way behind 2016 .

Fishing with Eyeguy always keeps you on your toes and it’s always fun. Rick G I learned a lot by watching you work your magic on the gills. See you all soon. Thank you everyone for letting me hangout andfish with you all.

      Just talked to my neighbor up at the lake and he said one of SunkedAgain's neighbors in Black Bay couldn't get to his place going across the Partridge River-he said he almost broke thru the ice!!  I'm down a ways toward Wakemup from the narrow part going into the bay, but we had over 30" last wknd.  Looking good for some open water to fish down my way by the opener!
