Like the Kentucky vs. Louisville game in two weeks needed any more ammunition between the two teams.
Louisville freshman Chane Behanan had some interesting things to say after the Cardinals beat Memphis on Saturday.
“We’re the No. 1 team in the country in my eyes,” Behanan said. “We’re going undefeated. Point blank, period.”
Louisville? The best team in the country? I think unbeatens such as Syracuse, Missouri and Baylor might have something to say about that. Kentucky, North Carolina and Ohio State probably have an argument too.
With that said, there’s a better chance of Louisville being No. 1 than going undefeated.
Sure, the Cardinals are 10-0 with wins over Memphis and Vanderbilt, but undefeated? They have Georgetown and Kentucky before the calendar turns, and then the entire Big East gauntlet in January and February, not to mention a season finale at Syracuse.
Strong words from anyone, let alone a freshman.
I get that Behanan is just being confident, and you love to see that from a newcomer, but this comment could come back to bite him.
