St. John's at Kentucky- (7:30 ESPN2)- This match-up has lost a bit of its luster from when it was announced last spring but still should be a…

The Krystal Ball: The "Blackout" Edition

Hello everyone and welcome back to another TKB. For a second straight week I went 5-0, making the season record 53-9. Of course this probably means I will go 0-fer this week.

Some big games this week so let's get to it.

 

Mississippi State at Kentucky- (7:00 Fox Sports South)- The Cats righted the ship somewhat with the win over Jacksonville State last week and a sweep over the state of Mississippi could put Joker's squad ever so close to a sixth…

Florida at Kentucky- (7:00 ESPN)- Ok we all know about the streak, 24 in a row the Gators have beaten Kentucky. But after last week's debacle, you would hope the Cats would come out like a bunch of…
