ACC's expansion may impact UK's rivalry with UNC, Louisville

With the announcement a few weeks ago that the ACC would be expanding their conference schedule, North Carolina head coach Roy Williams told reporters this week that he doesn’t think the Tar Heels will continue their series with Kentucky.

Coach John Calipari addressed Williams’ comment when he spoke to the media yesterday, saying “It would be disappointing if North Carolina and Louisville and those teams in that league (ACC) say we have too many games, we can’t play you. But, obviously we’re Kentucky. We’ll get our games. I’m not worried about it. I always have liked the North Carolina game, but as our fans have found out, it’s us that they watch. It’s not the other teams…It’s about our team.”

TJ and Lachlan discussed the impact of the ACC expanding and how that could effect UK’s rivalry with UNC and even Louisville.
