I disagree..... Name a game this year that UNC played more inspired than they did against UK?
The UK vs. UNC game was terrible. UNC wasn't inspired. They didn't "win". UK handed the game to them, because the team is loaded with underclassmen.
C'mon, to truly be a target for other teams, you've got to be ranked in the Top 10 at a bare minimum. Sure, tradition might play into it, but when your team enters a game with a 15-8 record, it's hard for them to swagger around and proclaim that other teams are really getting up for playing them
Last year notwithstanding, UK hasn't consistently been in the Top 10 since the 1990's. Don't get me wrong. This year's team is talented and good, but UK isn't exactly instilling fear in other programs because of Rupp's Runts or the 1996-1998 teams.
