Usually the main thing as a Ky fan is to beat Louisville(no offense Joshnky) and find 5 more wins somewhere.
This season they beat Louisville and win 7 games and it still seems dissappointing. :confused:

No offense taken. I'm just enjoying the fact that if the Cards when next week their worst team in recent years will only be one win behind Kentucky's best team in years. And that one win was the instate matchup that the Cards almost won. ;)

It is really quite mystifying how this team fell off the face of the Earth so abruptly.




There's not much mystery to it. Kentucky's schedule got much tougher.

I will wait till that game to respond to this statement ;)
Seriously Joshnky, do you as a UofL fan, blame Kragthorpe for most of this?
I mean, what do you think the cards record would be if Petrino was still there? Just curious of your opinion of the situation.

I'm confident that our record would be better under Petrino. We would have beat Utah and Syracuse at least and probably UConn as well. Unfortunately it has been a tough transition and I'm willing to give Kragthorpe a chance to get in his own players and fully implement his system. Everyone was excited that he kept some of Petrino's playbook but now I hope he scraps that and does it all his way next year. Another year like this and he might need to take that SMU job.

It varies from fan to fan.

Most hate FSU the most, followed by either Georgia or UT. Most also hate Miami.When I went to UF, we were playing Miami every year. They were FAR more despised by Gators than was FSU (relatively speaking). I survived some hostile crowds in the Orange Bowl that I have not encountered in the 20+ years since.

As far as SEC rivals go, I would agree that Georgia is the most despised....and yes, I remember why the St. John's river flows south to north :cool:

I look for Mike Hartline to be the starter. 6'5 and has a cannon arm, and he is young.

Next year will be interesting if they can find somebody who can replace Woodson, whether it be Pulley or Hartline.MY money is on Pulley if Brooks returns. If we have another coach, then I think Hartline will be in the mix.

The UT-UK game was much closer than it needed to be. In the first half UT was controlling the line of scrimmage, especially on defense. Then they go prevent in the 2nd half meaning they rush 3 and drop everyone else 10 yds off the ball. This means Ky can dump it off to Little and Tamme all day for wide open 5 yd catches plus whatever they can make after contact. It also negates the athletic advantage UT had by leaving the defense on the field and tiring them out. The only way that D works is if you can pick off a tipped ball or hammer the ball carrier to knock a ball loose. I understand the purpose of the prevent is to prevent the deep ball and run the clock but if Chavis had played it straight up, Woodson would not have had time to go deep because the UT D was beating the UK O-line so bad and the clock does run much in college when you're giving up the 5-10 yd play due to the clock stoppage after 1st downs. UT was successful defending 2 pt conversions because they were forced to play tight and you saw what happened. UT dominated the line of scrimmage and disaster for UK.

The bottomline is the game was much closer than it should have been. UT was the much better team yesterday.

With a boatload of seniors and home games vs UT, LSU and UF this should have been UK's year. Was Louisville a home game too? I can't recall.

Instead UK is likely headed back to the Music City Bowl, still unable to break through against UT, UF, UGa or even SC.

We beat Georgia Last year, and defeated LSU the #1 team in the nation at the time, this year along with Arkansas and Louisville.

I'm not getting your logic. We are a better team this year. Our schedule was harder (the hardest in the nation) and we had the same record as last year. I'll take it. We still don't have the depth as any other team in the SEC because of the probation and loss of scholarships.

We have made more progress than any other football team in the SEC.

I would agree that Ky has made more progress than any other team in the last few yrs but that's largely due to the fact that there weren't many 2-9 SEC teams in that time. UK had a lot more room to progress than most. If you'll allow me to venture outside of the SEC, I'd say UC has progressed more than UK. They didn't have the probation issues UK did but they had their own challenges.

As a fan I'm sure it was fun to beat Louisville (who had their worst team in years) and # 1 LSU. Beating a #1 is always huge. Can't take anything away from KY on that one. It was a great game.

But thanks to losses like MSU, the net gain for UK was maybe 2 SEC wins. At the end of the day, the Wildcats won 3 SEC games in 2007 with its best team in years and a year where the tough SEC opponents like UF, UT and LSU fell at home.

A few years ago UK was neck and neck with Vanderbilt. Thanks to recent improvements, UK is now a game better than the Commodores in the SEC.

...and we are going to back to back bowls...baby steps my friend. We do play in the toughest conference in America and the toughest division in that conference.

Not so long ago, we were getting blown out by the big boys in our conference. Now they don't want to play us. We are not an automatic win anymore....baby steps.

Coach Brooks was asked what is the main difference between Tenn/Florida/etc and Kentucky. He said the main difference is the depth. There is not that much talant loss between the 1st and 2nd strings on those teams and there is a big talant loss at Kentucky, due to the loss of scholarships. He said 08 everybody should see a big difference because 07 was the first year we were back at "full strength." Baby steps.:thumbup:

Both schools were allotted 11,000 seats for the game. Well prior to the announcement yesterday, UK conditionally requested--and was granted by MCB officials--an additional 16,000 seats.

These 27,000 seats were all offered to UK season ticket holders (mostly Blue-White Fund contributors) and were completely sold out before the announcement was made yesterday.

The Music City Bowl, itself, put the remaining available seats for sale online and they were snapped up within minutes (not hours) of the reveal show last night.

Have no fear, Cats fans....

Once the pathetically-travelling fans from Free Shoes decide that it sucks to go to a bowl in a colder climate than what you are experiencing at your campus, then they will be putting their 11,000 tickets on eBay post haste.

As much as you hate Florida State, the prospects of beating them in a bowl has gotta be especially sweet for you.It is always sweet to watch them lose, regardless of who the opponent might be.

Although I went to the University of Florida, I once drove down to the Orange Bowl (from West Palm) to watch Miami defeat FSU (#1 vs. #2) in the game that eventually ended up being known as "Wide Right-Part II" (1992?)

It was the best of both worlds. I knew that, when I left the stadium, one of the two teams that I despised above all, would have their season crushed.

Back to your earlier question, I am a little worried giving ole liverspots nearly a month to prepare for ANY game. Their bowl record over the last three decades has been pretty sick.

Source: Multiple suspensions likely for Music City Bowl, plus 3 games in 2008
By Mark Schlabach
ESPN.com

As many as 20 Florida State football players will be suspended from playing against Kentucky in the Dec. 31 Gaylord Hotels Music City Bowl, as well as the first three games of the 2008 season, for their roles in an alleged cheating scandal involving an Internet-based course, a source with knowledge of the situation said Tuesday morning.


Florida State officials are expected to announce the results of the investigation this week. The source said university officials determined Monday night the exact number of football players who will be suspended. The university isn't expected to immediately reveal the identities of the student-athletes involved in the alleged cheating.

"If the players fight the suspensions, they'll risk losing all of their eligibility," a source with knowledge of the situation said Tuesday morning.


The source said student-athletes in several other sports also were implicated in the cheating scandal.


The investigation already has led to the resignations of two academic assistance employees who worked with FSU student-athletes. The school revealed in September that as many as 23 student-athletes were given answers before taking tests over the Internet.


Further investigations revealed additional student-athletes were involved in the cheating, according to the source.


The school's investigation found that a tutor gave students answers while they were taking tests and filled in answers on quizzes and typed papers for students.


Florida State president T.K. Wetherell, a former Seminoles football player, reported the initial findings in a letter to the NCAA in September.


Wetherell ordered an investigation by the university's Office of Audit Services in May after receiving information an athletics department tutor had directed one athlete to take an online quiz for another athlete and then provided the answers.


The tutor implicated in the audit told investigators he had been providing students with answers for the test since the fall of 2006, according to a university report.


The school announced in October that athletics director Dave Hart Jr. will resign Dec. 31. Wetherell appointed State Rep. William "Bill" Proctor interim athletics director. Proctor also is a former FSU football player.


The school announced last week that longtime football coach Bobby Bowden had agreed to a one-year contract extension through the 2008 season that will pay him at least $1.98 million. Bowden, who is in his 32nd season at the school, is major college football's all-time winningest coach with 373 career victories.


Florida State also designated offensive coordinator Jimbo Fisher as Bowden's eventual successor. Fisher's new contract calls for him to replace Bowden by the end of the 2010 season. If Fisher isn't named FSU's new coach by then, the school's booster organization would owe him $2.5 million. Under the terms of the new contract, Fisher would owe Seminoles boosters $2.5 million if he leaves the school before the end of the 2010 season.


The Seminoles struggled for the fourth consecutive season in 2007, finishing 7-5 overall, 4-4 in ACC play. It is the fourth consecutive season they failed to win 10 games, after winning at least 10 games in 14 consecutive seasons, from 1987 to 2000.

Mark Schlabach is a college football reporter for ESPN.com. Information from the Associated Press was used in this report.

Hopefully the NCAA will take fsu off their scared cow list and start to punish them as they do other schools.

We're not expecting any favors after telling them to go perform anatomically impossible acts when they tried to do away with Native American nicknames and symbols a couple of years ago.

The saddest part, to me, is that this wasn't contained to student-athletes, much less football players. They cancelled the entire class because of this issue. That's just unacceptable. I'm not enough of a naif to believe this sort of thing doesn't happen -- one article I read last year on the prevalence of cheating in college nationwide just made me shake my head -- but dadgummit, don't do it at my school.

The only good things I can think of are (1) we fired the people responsible and (2) we found it ourselves. If there had been an attempt to cover it up, I'd be even madder.

If you want an issue that should scare your school, my school and most anyone else playing big-time football, let's hope the NCAA doesn't look into how some of these recruits who are doubtful to qualify because of their core classes magically reach the mark thanks to online or correspondence courses.

I was reacting to that fumble by Dixon and the unbelievable recovery by Tamme. Could you believe that?!?!?

Good win for Kentucky, suspensions and all.

On a side note, I almost wish I were a student at FSU. I would have walked into the football offices and said "I played linebacker in 5th grade." and hope they'd sign me up.

Btw I was referring to Moore's 93 fumble vs Clemson(Johnson intercepted to seal the win then fumbled). At least we hung on this time.

As soon as Johnson intercepted that pass I had visions of Marty Moore's fumble. I just knew he was going to fumble it and pop! out it came. Great win for UK and the entire program. Brooks has made them competitive in the SEC. You can now watch them and feel like they have a shot at winning a game against anyone. It will be interesting next year on how they will do. They are losing a lot of good seniors. If they can repeat a 7-5 season it would be a good achievement for them.

Good game, guys.

It was an interesting position for me -- I'm a Florida State grad who grew up in Kentucky as a UK fan and still roots for the Cats (except when they play FSU, of course). And I live around Nashville. I was just hoping to get through bowl month without hearing so much crap from UK fans that I'd be forced to take them off the "nice" list. Luckily, we kept them nervous enough that I got a lot more "good game" than smack walking back to the car tonight.

Woodson capitalized on the missing players with 358 yards passing and finished the season with 40 touchdown throws, breaking Tim Couch's school-record 37 set in 1998. It was the 19th consecutive game with at least 200 yards passing and a scoring touchdown for Woodson, a senior who figures to be among the first quarterbacks taken in the NFL draft.

"He's got an NFL body, an NFL arm and he clearly has an NFL mind," Kentucky coach Rich Brooks said.



I was glad to see Woodson have a good game as his stock seemed to drop off as season progressed.
He will probably be second round somewhere but regardless, he helped leave his mark on the football program.
Thanks Andre' as well as Rafeal, Kenan, Jacob etc !! :thumbup:

The 40 TD passes are also an SEC record.

UK also had the most first downs in the SEC this season.

Rivals has their mock draft with this pick:

14. Chicago (7-9)
The Pick: Andre' Woodson, QB, Kentucky
The Buzz: The Bears are hoping for a chance at a future offensive leader in the first round.

Not to take ANYTHING away from Woodson this season, but this should have a * by the record.

They play 1 extra game than in seasons past.

Two 3 OT games did not hurt either.

The stats from overtimes should not count in either the team records or the individual records. A lot of cheap numbers get posted in these overtimes.

If college OT rules were the same as the NFL, I wouldn't have as much of a problem with it.

Well Kentucky can use this :
LSU won title with two losses. We beat them=one loss plus we beat the team that gave them other loss(arkansas)

I believe that, with the extra points that UK surrendered during their 6 OT periods this year, their defense actually ranked slightly worse than last year in terms of average points surrendered per contest.

However, for anyone who witnessed the last two defensive squads in person, there is no way to say that this year's UK defense was not a marked improvement over the 2006 squad led by (he whose name shall not be uttered aloud).

I thought our secondary and d-line played amazingly well versus FSU.

ESPECIALLY the secondary. Our secondary has become a REAL STRENGTH.

What do you think?

Lindley really played well all season.
Jeremy Jarmon will get alot of exposure next season after the season he had this year and should be pre-season all sec.
Corey Peters and Micah Johnson to name a couple more. I really feel the defense will be a strong point in 08.
Years ago, Ky didnt have the corner speed to cover the receivers of teams like Fla etc but now we do. Coach Brooks has really brought this team a long way !
