I have a question. Robert Morris?

Robert Morris?
What's a Robert Morris?
About every ten years, some nobody knocks off UK, and the media and UK haters go wild. "It's the end of Kentucky Basketball!" " The Dynasty is over!". It happens.
Bottomline is that Kentucky Basketball isnt a Dynasty, It's an Empire!
UK is the closest thing in sports to the Roman Empire.
What Robert Morris did the other night, with all due respect, is the equivelent of the Barbarians starting a trash fire in Gaul. It means nothing to the big picture.
When Kentucky gets hit with adversity, they always come back bigger and better. This is no exception.
We do it because WE can!
