Everyone's on Cornell, it seems. Has this bandwagon gotten really full, really quick or what?
Just wondering how many Cornell players will be in the NBA next season, cause at least 3 Kentucky players will be.
Cornell may keep this game close for a while, but in the end, athleticism will easily win out. Kentucky isn't slow, methodical Temple or Wisconsin. For a little perspective, Temple ranked 255th in PPG this season at 65.5 per game in the regular season. Wisconsin ranked slightly better at 207th, averaging 67.5.
Kentucky was 18th at 79 PPG.
Simply put, there is nobody on Cornell that can match up with the speed and athleticism Kentucky presents.
At a press Conference today a reporter asked DeMarcus Cousins of Kentucky what it was going to be like to be on the court with a bunch of smart kids from an Ivy League School.
His response? "This aint no spelling bee."
You can bandwagon jump and go with the herd here if you like... or recognize that the public is allowing Vegas to give you a complete gift here.
Kentucky by 15+ when it's all said and done.

Come on, guys. Putting pre-season baseball in the ultimate race is dumber than putting in the Arena League. You guys should know better. It's a total guessing game.
There is no reason whatsoever that you couldn't have started the race with just the NHL, NBA and College Hoops. So what if someone picks two games in one sport for the first 2 1/2 weeks? It's better than forcing people to pick exhibition games. (maybe even give people the OPTION to select the games?)
I'm 18-9 overall and FIVE of my losses are in exhibition baseball.
I love you guys and Iove this site, but putting pre-season baseball in a handicapping contest it completely amateur.
