In what might be one of the best things I ever heard, Christian Laettner is supposedly going to coach a group of villains against some former UK players coached by Rex Chapman in Rupp Arena.
It’s great on several levels. It’s going to be great to see some former UK players in action again. Not only that, they’re going up against players we loved to hate. The queen of people we love to hate is going to be their coach. Which, you have to have the smallest amount of respect for the guy coming into Rupp Arena where he knows he’s going to hear it all. Hopefully it will be all in good fun like the jeering against the Dominican team was (I don’t think anyone mentioned this but both teams received a standing ovation once the outcome was inevitable).
But just in case, Laettner, watch your back.
