It’s not easy for any of us to admit maybe we are wrong. Yet Kentucky junior Jarrod Polson probably provided the best insight any player has into why UK is 4-3 and has struggled with consistent effort this season.

“Just coming off a national championship, expectations are really high and we might have thought we were better than we really were,” said Polson Friday.

Bingo. If Polson was thinking that knowing how hard he would have to work to have a chance to play, imagine what his more highly-touted teammates must have been thinking. Or were thinking.

I think we have realized that we are not as good as people thought we would be right now or we thought we would be. It has definitely given us more encouragement to work and I think we have done that so far, especially in the last week,” Polson said.

Will it help? Let’s see today when UK hosts Portland.

    Regardless of how good the players think they are, they could always be better by applying themselves. These type of statements suggest that if they are as good as they think they are ( which is seldom the case), that is good enough, and they don’t need to be any better.

    A Hindu Proverb proclaims, “There is nothing noble about being superior to some other man. The true nobility is in being superior to your previous self.”

  • Takes a big Man, ( or a little Cat ), to admit that your wrong, to so many…I’m very proud of this Team.

    I hate FPB, but I’ve had access to every game.
