And if the wind blows east, would you follow me, And if the wind blows north, would ya stay your course, And if the wind blows west, would ya second guess, And if it blows to the south, would you count me out, And if the sun don’t shine, would you still be mine, And if the sky turns grey, would you walk away, Would you say I do, if I say I’ll be, And walk this road through life with me… To say that the ‘away’ schedule for the 2010-2011 Cats has been a “lonely road of faith” would be a large understatement. We have done our best here at The TGR Pick to change the fortunes of our Cats. We have changed the music we quote each game, we have changed those who help predict and set the TGR Pick each game, we have changed our thought process on who we pick to win, and we have worn the same underwear for days in order to make things right for Kentucky in hostile environments. If not for a lone victory in a skanky techno bar in Columbia, South Carolina, we would have a perfect road record for the year in the SEC. We have attempted to assist you in your quest for cash, win or lose for the Big Blue, but things are not going as we would have liked. We have a winning record, but like the Cats, we had higher expectations for this season. Let’s move on and look at the previous games results…
Kentucky -8 vs. Vanderbilt – Over/Under: 148.5
The TGR Pick: Kentucky 81 – Vanderbilt 71
Final: Kentucky 68 – Vanderbilt 66
If you are keeping score at home, The TGR Pick’s record falls to 28-23-2 with the 0 for 2 we took on Senior Night in Rupp Arena. Do we care? Not really, the Cats won and by now, we are out of any Christmas money we might have still been hanging on to. We are as focused as a possum in the headlights for this afternoon’s senior Day celebration in Knoxville, so let’s get to it.
Kentucky -1 vs. Tennessee – Over/Under: 137.5
Some have the game as a “pick’em’, but we have tiger blood running through our veins and are going with UK -1. Are we rocketing towards the moon? Yes. Are we winning? Maybe. Here is the part of the post you have skipped down to…
The TGR Pick: Kentucky 78 – Tennessee 72
Bruce Pearl’s final game in Knoxville will end in a loss and he will have on a puke orange sports coat. Could your Sunday be any better than that? Take Cal’s Kiddy Cats and the “over’ in a few minutes in Knoxville. Kick’em in the Vols! C! A! T! S!
