You’ll notice that I usually put up some really classic logos in the game thread, but tonight, just for Kentucky, we’re going with the 1990s-era logo they used where some real graphic design genius decided to make the wildcat’s tongue look like a penis.

That seems very fitting for this edition of Kentucky basketball. Folks, Kentucky is not good (as indicated by their record of 6 wins and 13 losses), but because the talent knowers determined when these guys were in like the eighth grade that they were talented, we have to listen to talking heads say out loud that this objectively mediocre team might at some point play up to its alleged talented level and therefore make a run through the SEC Tournament and go to the NCAA Tournament.

It ain’t happening, of course, and there is a decent chance they might lose to Vanderbilt tonight. Have fun, expect to win.
