Not sure the rematch will happen..... Depends on how the brackets line up I guess, but I'm thinking UNC/UK at the end.

@mrganja dont' believe I did. What was the name of it. I usually hit the bars downtown closer to Rupp. Cheapside is a popular spot for me. Bluegrass Tavern is a fairly new (3-5 years) bourbon bar down the block from Cheapside. I like it there too.

As for the comments about UK being #1.... I realize that. My point is they're not just a #1 ranked team. This team is really really special. Probably 6 first rounders on the team. They're not just #1 team in the nation good, they're pretty fucking special good.

@mrganja Funny you mention Spivey.... I was having a talk with my book last week and he was telling me about how his dad used to work for Ed Curd, who is one of the father's of the point spread, and the bookie Spivey was caught up with in the point shaving scandal back in the early 50s. My bookie, who took the business from his dad, is now affiliated with some of Ed Curd's old crew. If you've not heard of Ed Curd here's a link
