    Not a choke, Steve. It’s called an upset – by a team no-one gave a chance. Happens in sports. But the best part is that we don’t have to suffer Ashley Judd any more.

    I don’t think the game was a “choke” in the sense that Green Bay choked the NFC Championship away. I just think Wisconsin outplayed them. The game WAS an expose of the fact that Calipari is NOT a great coach. He is a great recruiter, but consistently gets outcoached in big games. If Calipari recruited them and Izzo coached them, THEN you’d have a powerhouse team.

    This loss couodnt have happened to better bunch of guys. Honestly though, I’ve never in my life seen a group of kids being interviewed after a loss(last game of year loss) and laugh throughout the interview. Harrison laughing at his brothers comment and then Stein laughing at what seemed like the whole interview process was the worst sportsmanship I’ve seen in a long time. But that pretty much sums up people’s thoughts about these UK calipari teams…..they don’t really care about college. Couldn’t have been obvious last night.

    Yeah, I don’t really think it was as much a choke as much as it was just Kentucky being overrated. Wisconsin was just the better team.

    Kentucky got fat and happy barely scraping by bad SEC team after bad SEC team and when faced with real opponents(ND, Wisconsin) they were overmatched.

    I don’t see the Wildcats as any different from last year’s mid-major darling Wichita State, who’s final record was 35-1. Over-inflated pretenders that no one will remember in five years.

    Great article. I feel bad for some UK fans, but too many were arrogant this year.

    it was indeed a choke. As a Kentucky resident (but – full disclosure, a Louisville Cardinals fan) I observed that the players and coaches became convinced of their own invincibility. Narcissistic is one way to describe the coaching attitude. Entitled and smug might be another description. One other thing – Wisconsin played with courage and refused to lose. Badgers deserved the win.
