I honestly wouldn't mind giving in and going to play Kentucky early in the year with no return game. With the experience we have returning at the Guards and them bringing in freshman no matter how talented don't have the experience. Win or lose would be a great experience and great exposure.
Calipari and Alford are very good friends.
I was actually going to put up a new thread this morning about this! Wow.
I got a call last night while I was at dinner. I was told last night that Cal and coach Alford had a talk sometime during the Final 4 and Cal agreed to do a home and home with UNM. UK lost a game for this coming year due to Conferance realignment. I believe we are going to head to the blue grass state starting next year!
Mark. Is this an April Fools joke??
I feel like an idiot! But I am an idiot so it kinda works out!
It's a home an home?!? Why does today have to be April fools?
Was told that the Nike connection and Alford's relationship is what sealed the deal.
UK could lose up to 7+ players next year. This could be an upset in the making. UNM will need to shore up the 4 regardless.
Not sure if the big man will comment but I've got a call out but was told he's traveling back from the final 4 this morning.
Back to yard work but I'll update you if I hear anything.
That would be great if it comes to pass! If we got the home and home we would have them here in 2013. Hey Mr. AG, how'd you like the opportunity to showcase your skills against Kentucky in the Pit?
This would be a cruel April fool... Fingers crossed...
I'll believe it tomorrow...
...or next week...
Go Asstecks!!! NO, REALLY.......GO! NOW!
That's cruel, Mark.
mark tweeted it....its real...i think....
Not trying to sound rude but considering what day it is and the fact that there's no source...
Mark always does an april fools post. Not cool man
i hate april fool's day, this would be one of the worsts ones if its just a joke
I;m going to groan Mark because I believe this is an April Fools joke - hope I have to say "I was wrong" - but I just don't believe it (today). Wish I could say this was a really funny joke - but due to 50 years of pain - can't laugh anymore when it comes to the Lobos!
I may be wrong about this but aren't we only allowed to play something like 4 or 5 road games a year?
a little off topic, but does anyone know when our schedule is released, i forgot
Dumbest day of the year!
Why would Kentucky want to schedule a loss?
It would be so rad if true. Great recruiting tool for aaron gordon because it would be a home match against UK his "One and done year". stupid april fools!
Funniest part of the post game interview, Cal is asked about his star player playing the point. Cal looked right at the player with that crooked grin and said if the would come back he could absolutely play the point. LMAO. Hint. Doubt that coach Alf would leave a day early and not stay for the final tomorrow night.
I've gone from 50/50 to 99/1 certain this is a cruel joke...
1. Alford and Cal are not friends.
2. Cal is not rubbing elbows with anyone who doesn't have a unibrow this weekend.
3. This thread is not cool! Let's groan Eazy06 for giving Mark the idea.
Why would Alford be at the Final Four? Does he have a ticket? I would think coaches would be recruiting unless they are actually participating in the event.
The teams in Final Four are Kentucky, Kansas, Ohio State, and Lousiville
NIce try though.
It seems Calapari has no incentive to agree to a home and home with us. If we are lucky we might get a ONE and done in Lexington. But we can't do that until the Football team starts making money on their own means and stops mooching off Alford and THE PIT.

NEW LOBO ORDER
WE ARE NEW MEXICO
Alford and Cal are good friends, well documented/reported, but the rest could be a too cruel joke.
Coaches get free tickets to the final four, have meetings seminars recruit assistants, party etc there and recall from the smithtextgate crap Alford was at Final Four with son last year texting
