I always appreciate Pat Forde's ability to make Kentucky fans want to slit their wrists:
Tubby Smith. NCAA winning percentage: .700. He's lost only one first-round game, and that was at Georgia back in 1997. Took Tulsa and the Bulldogs to the Sweet Sixteen, and has gotten Kentucky there six times. Caveat: Hasn't gotten Kentucky to the Final Four since 1998, and the Wildcats are looking at the longest Final Four-less streak in school history if they don't make it this year.Forde was a sportswriter at the Courier-Journal before his time at ESPN, so at least he has witnessed the moral depravity of Kentucky fandom at its lowpoints.
