The Cats should bend over and take it just like they did against Vandy.

Sounds like nobody believed it would be the NIT so with Rupp filled and no staffing on a short notice for Memorial, there wasn't time to set up a game in Louisville or whatever. That's what happens when you aren't organized and take every measure to insure your facilities are ready for events. PATHETIC!!! I blame this one on Mitch.
