I'm in! However, living in Cleveland makes it a little more reasonable.

What time does the UP fan bus leave Chiles? I assume it's in Woodless!'s job description to drive.

I'm in as long as the bus has a kegerator stocked with Pliny! Cheers!

No bus this time, Blacksheep. Airfares into Louisville and Cincy will probably go down as we get closer to November. Just don't look now because they are pretty inflated.
But as a wise man once asked me, "Don't you have a credit card?"

Haha. The credit card is maxed out from the last three years of Vegas trips. Who knew they actually expect you to pay it back

Why couldn't they have made this trip last year while I was in West Virginia.

UK - 2012

Post by DoubleDipper on Wed May 30, 2012 6:49 pm

Plan ahead for 2012; the Pilots are in Lexington to play UK on December 8,2012 (unless of course there is a buyout or schedule change - you never know with Cal).

That price actually sounds really reasonable last year. It's just that darned airfare.... taking the Friday off work is not a significant factor. I guess we'll have to see what I've got in the fun bank this year.

Ooof. That is going to be a brutal week. UNLV and then Kentucky four days later?! Any other leads on non-conference dates? Aside from UK, our only other return game is at Ohio, right?

Still nothing new to report beyond the already reported games against North Florida and Cal State Bakersfield in the Chiles Center on 17 & 19 December, and in the Las Vegas Classic December 22 & 23 with Bradley, Virginia Tech, and Colorado State.

As it turns out, Kentucky would rather play the Portland Pilots than the Indiana Hoosiers.

From CNN Sports (edited):
Kentucky University, the 2012 national basketball champions, has rejected Indiana Universityís four-year contract offer that calls for two neutral site games followed by two games on campus venues.

Hoosiers Athletic Director Fred Glass wrote Kentucky counterpart Mitch Barnhart on May 10, offering a four-year contract that would begin with two consecutive neutral site games at Lucas Oil Stadium in 2012 and 2013. The series would continue with a game at Rupp Arena in 2013 and at Assembly Hall in 2014, the contract states.

Eleven days later, Barnhart informed Glass that Kentucky had scheduled a game with the University of Portland for December 8, the same date being considered for an IU-UK game.

For the game to push through, Indiana offered to pay half of Kentuckyís $100,000 buyout obligation to Portland
and agreed to shuffle its schedule to play the game on December 22.

Glass was later informed by Kentucky that UK would not commit to a contract over two years in length.

The University of Portland Cupcakes

Post by DoubleDipper on Tue Jul 10, 2012 3:25 pm

More cupcakes than any local bakery!. The response to UK's release of its home schedule for this year from John Clay, a sports columnist for the Lexington Herald-Leader.
You knew it would be weak, but really this is beyond weak, actually.

Lafayette, Morehead State, Long Island, Samford, Portland, Lipscomb, Marshall, Eastern Michigan.
Yes, Kentuckyís non-conference basketball schedule, announced this morning, includes Duke and Maryland on neutral floors and road games at Notre Dame and Louisville, but the Rupp Arena portion is deserving of a flagrant foul.

More cupcakes than any local bakery!

I know, I know, Baylor is coming to Rupp. The school that UK beat in the South Region final last year. Yet no one is going to get worked into a lather over Baylor, however, not when the Bears just lost Perry Jones III, Quincy Miller and Quincy Acy. Scott Drew has an excellent class returning, but the appeal of a UK-Baylor matchup at Rupp does not match the appeal of a UK- North Carolina or a (yes) UK-Indiana.

Especially when Indiana is likely to be No. 1 or No. 2 in the pre-season rankings. You may be tired of hearing that, but itís true.

Kentucky fans will flock to Rupp regardless, of course. They always do. The Cats are coming off a national championship year. John Calipari has a tremendous recruiting class. Again. There will be a few good SEC games on the home schedule, we hope.

But the school did just announce another ticket increase, both in the required K-fund donations and individual tickets. And given this yearís guest list, you canít help feeling that the fans who pack Rupp Arena deserve a little more respect.
