I think an upset this year would be Vanderbilt or Mississippi State and I am being generous. I love what Stoops has done so far but while there has been a lot of progress, he is making it work with what Joker left him (very little) and what he has brought in. If he can hang onto some of the commitments for next season and continue to build I think UK can become competitive again in the SEC.
The Louisville game next year I believe will be a lot more competitive. Louisville will be losing a lot of players and trying to replace Bridgewater plus they will have an ACC schedule to mow through before facing UK at Papa Johns at the end of the season. UK benefited the most from the end of season switch and I think momentum is starting to swing in the rivalry. Wouldn't be shocked if Strong is considered for some better job openings in the future as well (better than Tennessee).
As for Louisville's schedule, etc. I'm hoping for a Sugar Bowl matchup of Touchdown Teddy vs Johnny Football. Who's with me?
