We had a Bluegrass battle earlier in the first opening round matchup, and now the second features a clash between a pair of four letter network entities.
ESPN COLLEGE GAMEDAY
--Still has yet to visit the KFC Yum Center despite Louisville's ridiculous run of success since the building became the home of Cardinal basketball in 2010-11.
--Did not come in 2014-15 despite Rece Davis telling Card Chronicle: "I promise that we'll get there at some point. And I'll go ahead and say this: I would be very surprised if it's not next (the 2014-15) season."
--Went to Ames for Iowa State vs. Kansas despite Louisville hosting Duke in a battle of teams ranked in the top five.
--Talked wayyyy too much about Kentucky during Louisville basketball games.
--Talked wayyyy too much about everything besides Louisville basketball during Louisville basketball games.
--Asked Louisville fans to guess when the first time Vitale mentioned Kentucky would be during the Cardinals' game against Indiana on Dec. 9. The answer was "before the opening tip." Lots of people got it right.
One goes on to the quarterfinals. One goes home and tries to do better (worse) next season.
