During a broadcast on ESPN Dan Dakich brought up the historic potential of the Kentucky defensive juggernaut. His counterpart, John Saunders, replied with a skeptical “no” and carried on to mention several teams including his favorite, the very good 1983-84 Georgetown Hoyas.
Slam Magazine did an impressive breakdown between the two teams that you can find here.
The basics of the breakdown is that, yes, UK was and is on a collision course with defensive history if the Cats can sustain.
We started a twitter discussion with Mr. Saunders about the comparison between these two teams and other great teams, and John was gracious in his analysis. He still favored the Hoyas despite the numbers at that time.
Tonight, we received another Tweet out of the Big Blue sky, that he might be on board with the Cats!
He’s starting to believe. Let’s hope the Cats can make John Saunders the latest believer and dare we say “convert” to the Big Blue Nation…
