Vandy over UK won't be an upset (if it happens)

NASHVILLE -- I'm about to pop over to Memorial Gym, where No. 17 Vanderbilt will play No. 2 Kentucky. People keep asking if I think Vandy can "upset" John Calipari's team, and I keep telling them there's no question the Commodores can win. Am I predicting it? No. But Vandy is absolutely capable, and if it happens it won't be an "upset."
Not technically, at least.
Sportsbook.com has this as a pick'em game.
Kentucky is not favored.
So remember that tonight as you watch the broadcast, and when you hear people talk about a possible upset just remember those people are basing that on rankings, but not on reality. In reality, Vanderbilt has just as good a chance to win this game as Kentucky. Who knows how it'll play out? But it won't be an upset regardless of the outcome.
