Thanks to everyone for following the live blog with John Wall, DeMarcus Cousins and Eric Bledsoe this afternoon. As expected, we had a huge following.

More than 1,400 readers tuned in to watch the event, and nearly 300 people have replayed the event in the 30 minutes since the chat ended.

We understand that not everyone's comment made it through. We apologize if you didn't get a chance to ask a question. We had such a large following that we tried our best to make due with the time we had.

We had 5,754 comments sent in during the one-hour time frame -- as head coach John Calipari would say, "You guys are crazy" -- and nearly 200 were published.

Again, we hope everyone enjoyed the chat and look forward to doing more in the future.

The Kentucky men's basketball team has been the talk of the 2009-10 athletics season. Now you will have a chance to talk with some of those players.

On Thursday, Cat Scratches will have freshman point guards John Wall and Eric Bledsoe and freshman forward DeMarcus Cousins for a live blog. Starting at 1 p.m., Wall, Bledsoe and Cousins, the self-nicknamed "Three Amigos," will field questions and comments from fans in a real-time format on UK's live blog application.

Fans can send in questions and comments, pending approval of the moderator, by clicking on the live blog application Thursday starting at 1 p.m. We are expecting a large audience for the live chat, so please be patient if your question does not make it through the first time. We will do our best to get to as many people as possible.

The "Three Amigos" have been three of the stalwarts behind Kentucky's 15-0 start and No. 3 national ranking.

Wall, largely considered a National Player of the Year candidate, is averaging a team-best 17.2 points and 7.3 assists this season. Cousins is scoring 15.4 points per game, including 9.6 rebounds a contest, in just 19.2 minutes per game. Bledsoe is averaging 10.2 points and 3.1 assists per game.

Has Patrick Patterson talked with you freshmen about what to expect going through the SEC part of your schedule? Where ever you go you will play to a full house and the team will be sky high to try and knock you off. It is unfair because you have to be on top of your game every game in the SEC. If they can pull off the upset it will make their season. You can expect any of them to play lights out because it would mean their season to knock off the Cats. I have seen so many teams to play like final four teams with the crowd going nuts and the next game they play they don't look like the same team and have only a hand full in the stands. ---David from Ashland Ky

Quote from Vanderbilt's Kevin Stallings, one of the league's most tenured coaches:

"Whoever beats Kentucky (if anybody does) will have a huge bonus on its resume."

Do you guys realize the Magnitude of what is about to come your way?

How huge the target is thats pasted on your chest?

Everything to gain and nothing to lose attitude from every team? What is the right mindset from you're perspective?
