Hello everyone and welcome to what will probably be the last Krystal Ball for the season. Please try to control your emotions LOL.

Kentucky at Georgia- (7:00 ESPN)- The Cats pay a visit down to Athens with a chance…Continue
Hello everyone and welcome to anothe Krystal Ball. Only four OT's and Tennessee kept me from another perfect week. Hard as it is to believe today is March 1 and this is the next to last weekend of the regular season. Lots of big games so let's get to it.
Kentucky at Arkansas- (4:00 CBS)- The Cats come in on a three game winning streak since losing Nerlens Noel and this will be a homecoming game for Archie…Continue

Kentucky at Tennessee- (1:00 CBS)- Many people have compared what happened to Nerlens Noel to the 2008 club that lost Patrick Patterson to a season ending injury. That teams first game was also at Tennessee…Continue

Hello everyone and welcome back to another Krystal Ball. Last week was a little better going
5-2. Another week another set of games in the SEC so let's get right to it.
LSU at Kentucky- (4:00 SEC Network)- As the title suggests, just when it seemed UK had it finally figured out they took about 10 steps back in the second half against Alabama. And if you are curious I used the Number 10 for a reason.
Hello everyone and welcome to another TKB. I am a little short for time this week so this will be a more abbreviated version. Last week wasn't good at all, so let's just move on.
Kentucky at Auburn- (9:00 ESPNU)- The Cats got the win they needed on Tuesday, now they play 4 of the next 5 on the road. Auburn is 2-1 so far in the conference and could easily be 3-0.
This will be the Tigers' only sell-out of the year…Continue
Hello everyone and welcome back to another TKB. I managed to get all three of the bowl games right last week, even though I was way off on the margins.

Kentucky at Vanderbilt- (9:00 ESPN)- The Cats start in Nashville in the crackerjack gym with noted Kentucky hater Bobby…Continue

Anyway three more bowl games left for the SEC and the one tonight I can't wait to see.
Oklahoma vs. Texas A&M- (Cotton Bowl- 8:00 Fox)- Outside of the title game, this is the game I most want to watch. You have Heisman Trophy winner Johnny Manziel and the…Continue

Kentucky at Louisville- (4:00 CBS)- A lot of streaks in this one, Cal hasn't lost to Pitino since coming to Kentucky and the Cats have never lost in the Yum Center 3-0.
Hello everyone and welcome back to another Krystal Ball. Not too bad last week going 7-2 making the total 95-18 for the season. As the title suggests a couple of big games for the Cats and the SEC Title Game too.
Kentucky at Notre Dame-(7:00 ESPN2)- The first true road game for Cal's Cats is also one of the toughest places to play.
The Irish are 34-1 the last two years playing in South Bend and are a very…Continue
Hello everyone and welcome back to another Krystal Ball, only Missouri kept me from a perfect week, but still 10-1 and 88-16 for the year is nothing to sneeze at. As the title suggests it is the end of the road for Joker Phillips but more on that in a minute.
LIU-Brooklyn at Kentucky- (7:00 BBSN)- The Cats looked anything but impressive on Wednesday getting pushed around by Morehead State. While Sean Woods'…Continue

It has been an interesting week to say the least so let's get right to it. First some basketball.
Maryland vs. Kentucky- (ESPN- 8:30)- For those that have…Continue
Hello everyone and welcome to another Krystal Ball. Today I will take a look at the 2012-13 Kentucky Basketball Season and whether Cal can top last season's epic road to an 8th Championship.
As we all know UK lost its top 6 players and signed the #1 or 2 recruiting class for 2012. How well this class comes together will ultimately decide this teams fate.
