The season is over, now it's time for some down time
Well, Kentucky's season came to an end, an end no one expected to witness. Despite having the nations number one ranked recruiting class, all the Cats could muster was a first round exit in the NIT. The NIT wasn't what BBN wanted, but it's the hand we were dealt. The fact that Louisville is having what is arguably their best season in school history doesn't make it any easier to deal with. But, every dog has it's day, and now it appears to be Louisville's no matter how bad it will hurt to watch the Dirty Birds cut down the nets in Atlanta, you may as well make you piece with it because that will more than likely be the outcome.
One thing Cat fans have to look forward to is an incoming class of freshman that has been dubbed "the best recruiting class of all-time". Six McDonald's All-Americans (first time any school in history has had six in one class) and all of which is ranked in the top 18 players in the country. Are they the best class of all-time? On paper yes, but we will have to wait and see what these young men are able to accomplish once the season starts, but I can promise you one thing, you will not deal with the type of season you were forced to endure this year.
Next season has the potential to be one of the best in Kentucky basketball history and I for one am ready to get it started. But, for now the season is over and summer is fast approaching and that can only mean one thing for Big Blue Corner, DOWN TIME!
We use this time of year every season to take a break from posting on the blog to kick back, relax and enjoy some time off. We won't be gone all summer, if there's any news that we receive we will post it here as always, we just won't be posting every day like we do during the season. We aren't fortunate enough to have this be our job, we still have to go to work every day and then if there's time, we write on here for people to read and hopefully enjoy.
This has been one of the best seasons for the site and I only have the people who actually read it to thank. We have had the most traffic this website has ever seen and starting next year things seem to be getting even better. Last year we had a record of 800 unique visitors for one day, this year however we set a new record for one day at 25,000 and I can't thank you guys enough. I know 25,000 visitors isn't much, but for a site that is as small as this one, it's not bad to say the least.
I hope everyone has a fun and safe spring and summer and I look forward to getting started again in the fall.
Until then, check back periodically as we will post any type of news concerning Kentucky basketball as soon as we receive it.
Thanks for reading...
