Ranked No. 1 a curse for Kentucky?
Such heresy. Might as well ask a Yankee if pin stripes are bad luck, or Crimson Tide man about an elephant. Kentucky fans consider No. 1 a divine right.
A few views from the sunny side of blue.
• Seven years since top spot rare air, and being the last unbeaten makes it doubly delicious.
• Taking an opponent’s best shot is nothing new for Big Blue. Taking an opponent’s best shot and making it shoot 30 percent is the proper antidote.
