Louisville's Behanan: "We're going undefeated."

By Jeff Borzello

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.”

Oh boy.

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.

As a Coach-- I TELL my Players .. You ARE the Best -- You CAN win Every Game ,etc.. So .. Why all over this Kid ??  HE  " IN HIS EYES".. Feels They're #1 & Who KNOWS .. Maybe They Are or Will Be... Starts WITH THINKING IT First ..  GO CARDS !!!!!

Also, he says, "in MY EYES." Its being blown out of proportion.

Haha. Thats funny. I like the confidence and swag. Kid puts up good numbers for a frosh but I think he's gonna be saying "what the hell was I thinking?"

Hey Rick, is there any way you can get Chane scheduled for an appointment with the psychiatrist. He is CLEARLY suffering from two symptoms of schizophrenia. Seeing things that are not there, (we're number one in my eyes), and delusional thinking, (we are going undefeted...period!). In layman's terms that is called CRAZY!!! GO CARDS!

It sounds good to make declarations when you are a top team, win a few games and get all excited. I haven't really checked bit surely some of those good Big East teams are still there this year. I knowthar last year ifyou went thru the Big East games and tournament and had onlu 4 or 5 losses you were an excellent team. The young are brash.

Actually I have never said that nor even thought that. The days of a team going undefeated and winning the NC are gone. Too much parity in college basketball. Don't make assumptions they only make you look like an ass hat.

UK fans have short or (selective memories) I tell ya. Was it not two years ago when several Uk players were quoted saying they will go undefeated? These guys  are just having some fun, talk is talk.  Will Barton has claim Memphis will win the title twice now, so what? But it's SO  ok when it's a UK player but if it's anyone else BIg Blew nation blast them.
