It was a bad loss which is never good. However ND is 45-0 when under Bray in the month of november and ND has ALWAYS been stout at home against the top teams. History agrees with this.

While UK didn't play well, its like this wasn't a hostile environment. Vegas even thought UK was an underdog going into this as they listed ND as a 1-2 point favorite as the opening line.

Thats why Vegas knows and we don't. I haven't been sold on this team all year so I didn't know what to expect in this game considering it was our first true "road test" and to be honest it doesn't surprise me we lost. What did surprise me was the effort level by some of the players.

That Noel guy is really good though, haven't watched basketball enough this season to be able to judge any full teams yet though

His offensive game still needs considerable work and his defense hasn't been what its been touted to be. He is comfortable on his left hand but not his right. He doesn't switch well or give good help defense and allows easy baskets at times. He is also weak when it comes to rebounding. He isn't bad by any means but he isn't the player that many expected him to be. He is more of an "advanced project" who won't hurt you that much if you play him but needs considerable work in many areas.

Kentucky will be fine this year. We'll still make the NCAA Tournament with a decent seed and we may be a much more polished product by the years end. At this point we still have a lot of work to do.

Are you sure that ND is 45-0 in the month of Novembet? Mizzou beat them last year on November 21. Was Bray missing or something?

Just checked the schedule from last year. You beat them at the Sprint Center in Kansas City. The 45-0 record I was referring to was Bray's record at home during the month of November as the Notre Dame coach. His record there also against ranked opponents (especially top 10) is really good as well....

Here is a link to the game you are specifically referencing: http://espn.go.com/ncb/recap?gameId=313250087

I knew that we beat them at the Sprint Center I just didn't know that you were talking about at home.

Don't worry about it. That is just the Mizzou fans. As I learned during football season (and basketball seems to be on the same path) they will start out talking a lot of trash and correcting you, letting you know what they have done in the past and informing you how they are going to dominate.... then they start making excuses. (I expect basketball season to be even worse, considering they are expected to be good)

I wasn't letting anyone know what we have done. I am not one to dwell on the past. I was just saying that I thought his stat was incorrect.

I challenge you to find a quote of a Mizzou fan that posts here right now saying they will dominate in anything without a troll face immediately following. Your fanbase was the one on here demanding tribute for having the leagues best QB, and how anything under 10 wins was a disappointment this season and bashed people who predicted 7-5 or 6-6. Look no farther than the record prediction thread for Arkansas to see true trash talk and lectures of future domination.
