    Well, teams can't always get what they want. They'd either have to talk the SEC office into scheduling a conference game on Thanksgiving weekend that isn't a traditional turkey-week matchup, or try to find/move a non-conference opponent for that weekend. Easier said than done on short notice.

    I agree totally. If they both are redshirted then I expect one to leave. I mean if Hartline has the kind of year we hope, then he will be the starter his senior year as well.

    I was very well pleased with UK's game. How many times have us UK fans seen them mess around with medicore to poor teams and win a close game or get beat. It was an encouraging start. I hope they can hold up over this next 11 weeks with out an off date. How well they hold up over the four game stretch of Florida,Alabama,USC and Auburn will tell their tale this season.

    Does anyone know if any local channels will be picking up the game or is it only on ESPNU ?
    I was thinking one year, a local picked it up in a situation like this.

    It's ESPNU only. It's ESPN's way to make sure they max out on the cable systems to get all of their networks.

    Good news sort of.
    Getting in my car today , I heard one of the local radio stations say a Louisville television station was getting to broadcast the game as a "one time only" deal they worked out.
    Bad is part is I didnt hear which one. Can someone else let us know when you find out as I , like others, do not get ESPNU !
    Thanks.

    Ladies and gentlemen, I have some outstanding news for you if you live in the Lexington or Louisville areas. Insight will announce today that they have reached an agreement with ESPN and Disney and will show the UK - U of L football game on basic cable in Lexington and Louisville next weekend. Many fans from both sides of the fence have expressed their concern over having to upgrade their cable package to see the Governor’s Cup game, and Insight clearly has their ear to the streets and their eyes on the KSR comments section…..and an unpaid bill from 2005 in the name of “Thomas Beisner”, which I take no accountability for.

    Here’s the email they sent to us today explaining all the details:

    Matt -

    I wanted your KSR readers to be the first to know that Insight has arranged with ESPN to make the UK/UofL game on September 19 available to all of our customers in Louisville and Lexington, regardless of whether or not their current programming package includes ESPNU.

    After learning several weeks ago that the game was scheduled to air on ESPNU, we initiated discussions with ESPN and Disney to request an exception for this game and we’re very appreciative that they have provided it.

    In Louisville, analog customers will see the game on channel 11 and digital customers will see the game on channels 514 (standard definition) and 922 (high definition). In Lexington, analog customers will see the game on channel 6 and digital customers will see the game on channels 514 (standard definition) and 922 (high definition).

    As we move forward into football and basketball seasons, it is unlikely that we will be able to work out this arrangement for future games. That’s why we would encourage UK fans to add the 50-channel Digital Standard package for just $10 per month. That will ensure they don’t miss any of the Cats on ESPNU.

    More details should be available soon at Insight CEO Michael Willner’s blog, www.MichaelsInsight.com.
    When all is said and done more is said than done.

    Sounds like a one-time exception for the Louisville game. No way Insight will let this slide again in Lexington.

    Yeah it is supposedly a one time deal.
    Question...I have dish and my local channels are 3, 11, 32, 34, 41, 58. Will any of those have this ? It is hard to tell by the wording in the announcement.

    an additional 10 bucks for all the UK basketball games, and all SEC games is a small price to pay.
    Not this year...maybe a Wild Card

    Kentucky an early 12-point favorite v. Louisville.

    If I'm a Cardinal fan, I take the points. The Card D isn't all that bad and the running backs could give Kentucky fits. If the QB settles down and doesn't beat the team, they've got a chance at an upset.

    (That this is an upset is reason enough to fire Kraigthorpe at the end of the season anyway.)

    Wrong. It's reason to rename Commonwealth to Rich Brooks Stadium, however.

    Under Petrino, Louisville was a Top Ten program.

    Under Kragthorpe, they may not be in the Top Ten of the Big East.

    That's a mighty steep decline for a program in three short years.

    And a deserving firing, IMO, unless he finds the Top 25 and a pretty big bowl game this year.

    As to Brooks, he's a fine coach. A decent option.

    But Kentucky hasn't finished in the top bracket of the SEC East in how many years? How long has it been since they were a Top 25 program? 1984?

    Seriously, has Kentucky even sniffed the Top 25 in Rich Brooks' tenure?

    They were ranked as high as #8 in 2007 and beat eventual National Champion LSU.
