Louisville/Kentucky game again scheduled for New Year's Eve

New, 17 comments

Kentucky released its 2011-2012 non-conference basketball schedule today, and the first thing that should jump out to Louisville fans is that for the second straight year the "Battle for the Bluegrass" has been scheduled for New Year's Eve.

I was pretty adamantly opposed to this a year ago, and my stance hasn't changed. The game itself is as close to an unofficial state holiday as there is, so not giving it its own day apart from a national holiday seems foolish.

Once again, win or lose, my odds of seeing the ball drop just decreased dramatically.
