Almost 35 minutes to kickoff vs Little Brother U. I can't wait for football season to start.
Great day! UK beats UofLOL and the Reds knock off the Cards to get the lead back to 8 games. Woo!
"I talked to an advance scout that told me if Joey Votto and Albert Pujols were on the same team he'd advise his team to do the unthinkable...pitch around Votto to get to Pujols." - Buster Olney, ESPN
Disappointed in my Cards for losing, but no doubt in my mind if this game were later in the year the Cards would win. It's going to take more than one more year to undo the damage Kragthorpe has done. Rather be a has been than a never was though like UK.
To temper the stupid "hate" posts by both fan bases, Kentucky has a good team and the talent disparity was evident every time Cobb or Locke touched the ball. They seemed to take their foot off the gas midway through the first half or they would have beat a punchless UofL by 30 points. Louisville will hopefully be a decent team as the year winds on but they have some glaring weaknesses. Tackling is still an issue and the spread option is pretty ineffective when your QB never runs the ball.
On the other side of the ball, Tydlacka is going to lose some games for the Cats this year.
I agree Josh, kicking is going to be an issue for the Cats this season. There is clearly some talent there, but I don't know that they are ready to be much of a threat anytime soon.
TAL, is it really necessary to disparage the opponent, in fact give them zero credit for the win today? It's just most unfortunate that a civil discussion about the game can't take place without being littered with excuses and dismissal of UK's performance.
Championships for MY teams in my lifetime:
Cincinnati Reds - 75, 76, 90
Chicago Blackhawks - 10, 13
University of Kentucky - 78, 96, 98, 12
Chicago Bulls - 91, 92, 93, 96, 97, 98
Help stamp out, eliminate, and do away with redundancy.
Great way for Coach Phillips to start off his tenure as the head coach.
What's even more impressive is the class Joker and his staff are putting together for next year.
