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

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.

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

Such childish optimism is touching, but we'll remind Behanan of his prediction after his Dec 31 loss at Rupp.   That will just be UK fans being UK fans...

Chane, Chane, Chane you'll be undefeated until the tip off on Dec 31 then the drubbing will begin. You should have said, "We'll lose one game this year in Rupp, and hope we don't lose by 20 or more."

And it's comical how much attention this has gotten. He said "We're the number 1 team in my eyes, and we're going undefeated"..... This is just Chane being Chane.

We've beaten Syracuse 7 times in a row, including when they were ranked Number 1. And beating Pitt hasn't been a problem either.....  You should do some research.

Just so you know Chane, being "better than half the teams in the country" would put Louisville about 167th, not number 1. We'll see how that undefeated talk sounds in January after they've lost to Kentucky, Pitt, Syracuse, and a surprise team in the Big East.
