Tom'sTake: sour note in Music City

In interviews prior to the SEC Tourney, John Calipari talked about the good practices for his team but he also said he didn't know which team he would get on the court Friday night.  And Willie Cauley-Stein talked about hoping this team had turned a corner with its win over Florida but past performances kept him from being confident about that.  With Keeneland just around the corner, we can use a horse racing analogy for this team--one that looks pretty, sometimes trains really well but one that it's tough enough to win without an ideal set of circumstances.  And those are horses you can't trust in a big race.  Vandy took the fight to the Cats and they didn't respond and if, as expected, they miss out on the NCAA Tournament, they have no one to blame but themselves.  After losing Noel, UK put itself in the position of needing only to beat 10th-seed Vandy to secure a spot--and as their coach said, they "laid an egg."
