Kentucky vs. Notre Dame: Is UK Overrated or Just Experiencing Growing Pains?
Notre Dame throttled the Cats in South Bend, 64-50

The Kentucky Wildcats traveled to the Joyce Center in South Bend, Ind., to take on the Notre Dame Fighting Irish in the SEC/Big East Challenge. Being the Cats' first true road game of the year, coach John Calipari said in his pregame radio show that he had no clue how this team would respond to the environment.

Now that the game is over and the Wildcats got walloped, 64-50, I am sure that Calipari expected anything besides this horrible performance. Throughout the year, his young team has played tough and fought back in every game in which they've played. That was not the case Thursday night, as Notre Dame's experience and home-court advantage pushed the home team over the edge.

Therefore, a valid question must be posed to Big Blue Nation: Is this team overrated, or is it simply experiencing growing pains? Does this loss expose a squad that had too much preseason hype, or is it simply part of the maturing process of a typical young John Calipari team?

Advance to the following slides to hear arguments for each side of the debate, as well as my personal opinion on the state of the Kentucky program.
