    Oh wait, I apologize, that reaction was grossly unprofessional and uncalled for on a sports journalism site Sorry, It's just the idea that tiny obscure impoverished Gardner Webb, a team that that went 9-21 last year against a lot of DII calibur opposition, a team picked to finish at the bottom of the painfully woeful Atlantic Sun Conference this year, did not just beat mighty UK, who just ran a class act like Tubby Smith out of town so they could obscenely overpay Billy Gillespie, but actually pretty much blew them off their own home court, well it just sort of caused me for an instant to to lose my professional perspective and ....

    Oh fuck it, Bwahahahahahahahahaha.......

    I don't often call out D_B's, so I don't really know the protocol. What do I say?

    Suck on this! (??) ...

    A thread just on this game is fine with me. I texted my girlfriend several times with score updates, knowing full damn well that it would put a damper on her weekly girls' night. I am a bad person. I do not deny this.

    She was the only UK fan I know who was PISSED when they fired Tubby. I know some who wanted him to stay but were OK with the change. She, however, was PISSED, and remained that way tonight. She loved Tubby.

    Bless you Bubbler for having the D_B alert out.

    I was with friends tonight and never saw the television screen or the computer.

    Damn, Billy Clyde, it looks like your team didn't leave the stalls at Churchill Downs, no?

    No problem with a separate thread on an upset of this magnitude.

    I'm just happy that both upsets involved North Carolina schools. :)
