Well said. Jordan McCrae also had a comment about Randle. Too bad they don't come back to TB for round two of a butt kicking. Rupp much tougher to play at, cause you have to beat the refs too.
The college basketball season has yet to start but many people are already anointing Kentucky the champion. On Wednesday, SEC media picked UK as the SEC champion and freshman Julius Randle the player of the year. One day later, college coaches across the country weighed in, ranking Kentucky No. 1 in the USA Today top 25 poll.
Florida center Patric Young is having none of it. He delivered his message Thursday at SEC Media Days.
“I hope they think they can just walk on the court and they’re going to beat everybody. I hope that’s what they think. As soon as they play a real top team, they’re going to see it’s not just a walk in the park. One-and-done is not for everybody.”
The Kentucky team includes six freshmen who were McDonald’s All-Americans. As for Young’s Florida Gators, they were ranked No. 8 in the coaches poll and have seven players returning from a 29-8 team.
Florida travels to Lexington on February 15th and Kentucky plays in Gainesville on March 8th. Mark your calendars – those should be two of the more entertaining games on the SEC schedule this season.
