Kentucky is the most talented team in the SEC. Stipulated for the foreseeable future, counselor. It’s appropriate that a blue-blood program from the heart of horse country is stocked with powerful blue chip athletes who have obvious physical advantages. They can, should and probably will win the SEC. But there’s always a chance that Seabiscuit will emerge from the pack and energize the race. The Wildcats will get everyone’s best effort in every game, and the league is studded with contenders and wily veterans who can make things interesting. Kentucky’s stumble into and immediately out of the NIT last season has put the gleam of hope in the eye of every challenger the league has to offer.

"Kansas vs. Missouri: Let’s just file this under an annual request. One of the greatest rivalries in college basketball ought to be played this year, next year and every year.

"On Wednesday it was announced that the Tigers will play one more game at Hearnes, hosting Oklahoma City University in an exhibition on October 25. The idea for the exhibition came from head coach Frank Haith, who has enjoyed a good relationship with former Missouri head coach Norm Stewart since his arrival in Columbia back in 2011."
“Robertson, who played at Kansas from 1995-99, was part of some extra spice after choosing KU over MU.
When his father, Johnny, approached Stewart at a banquet to thank him for recruiting Ryan, Stewart told him off and evidently suggested Johnny Robertson go home and put on his “blue coat.”
And the rivalry at times was rough on Robertson, who was called “traitor” and plenty worse in games at MU and might be forgiven for mugging and exulting after he scored 17 points and hauled in nine rebounds to finally win in Columbia his senior year.”
