About Scott Anderson

I love covering the Kentucky Wildcats and even though I can't cheer on the outside when I go to games now, I am definitely cheering on the inside. You can follow me at @SAndersonNOB on twitter.

    I felt Kentucky should have definitely been ranked this week but the people voting in the AP poll and the ESPN poll aren’t going to Kentucky any favors in helping UK get a better seat in the NCAA tourney.
    Kentucky will have to beat Missouri or Florida to be ranked through the rest of this year if they don’t they won’t finish the regular season in the top 25 and will have some work to do to get a decent seat in the tourney but what really matters is where you finish in the tourney not were you are seated, just ask Duke about last year!
    If Kentucky does go unranked the rest of the year I think UK will have to be their own best friend the rest of the way the year depending on each other as a team and that just may be a good thing to help them come together and finally live up to the high hopes that all the BBN has for them!
