The Big Blue Lowdown

Insight, Analysis and Expertise on All Things Kentucky Basketball


Super 6 Highlights

On October 16, 2009, Kentucky basketball will enter a new epoch, as the John Calipari regime kicks off in grand style at Big Blue Madness in Rupp Arena.

The excitement level has reached a deafening tone, with fans around the country and within the commonwealth wanting to know exactly how good this team can be, and in particular, what the “Super Six” freshman class will look like.

Unfortunately, there is nothing to do but wait, but this little video clip can help hype you up until then.

This incoming class appears to be the total package: a powerful, space-eating center (Orton), a ball-handling floor general (Bledsoe), a silky smooth slasher-scorer (Dodson), a mid-range and perimeter scorer (Hood), a highly skilled big man (Cousins), and a once in a generation, do-it-all player of the year candidate (Wall).

The season can’t start soon enough.

1. This loss means nothing. UK lost a game on the road in bizarre circumstances vs a very good team. If anything,...
Time to put Texas A&M to bed and get tuned up for a high seed in the big dance.
Epic collapse by UK tonight. Still something not right with this team.
Tough loss over the weekend, but the Cats showed heart...they'll be back.
