K-Fund booster. Visited every SEC stadium except Arkansas when UK has played there.
You're absolutely right. UK can match whatever MSU offers him, thanks to the SEC TV$. He's also about to arguably have his best team at UK next year and he just came off a great recruiting year. Michigan State is potentially about to be sanctioned and will be in the middle of a rebuild with a coach that just had a 5-7 season in 1 year at Colorado. That's incredibly risky. I think he'll use this as an opportunity to get a well-deserved pay raise and stay here. Not only is the Big Ten East a more difficult conference to play in at the moment than the SEC East, but Michigan State football is currently behind Indiana, Michigan, Penn State, & Ohio State. They've had a bad last few years. I think it would be crazy to leave for Michigan State in their current situation. If he turned down Michigan/Harbaugh, I imagine he'll turn down Michigan State, as long as we match the offer.
@Booches94 We've beat y'all 5 times in a row and lead the all time series 7-3. Ever since your 2 East titles, you've become more like Vandy & Arky than ever before. We're 5-3 against Mizzou since you've joined the SEC & we've gone to 4 straight bowls and won our last 2, while you've gone to only 2 in the past 4 years and only won 1. So yea, Vandy/Arky is more your speed, for now.

PETA euthanizes 60% more animals(72%) at their shelters than normal, while most animal shelters only euthanize 12% and calls them "mercy killings." Most animals at their shelters are put down. Such a horrible organization of pseudo hippies. That dog is treated better than most humans.
And to add on, with the exception probably being 2017 UNC, we were the better team in ALL THOSE GAMES THAT WE LOST.
I never thought I’d say this, but I’m starting to agree with Paris10. I strongly disagree with his stance of never being happy when Calipari or Stoops wins though. However, I see his point of view. Calipari is NOT a good coach. You have to look at the facts. He can recruit like nobody else except maybe Coach K, but that’s it. He’s a horrible in-game coach. I’m sick of his mediocre coaching performances in the post seasons, losing games we should’ve won, & his free-throws don’t matter mantra. Free throws do in fact matter. We could’ve won the game tonight if he cared about them. He would’ve won it all in 2008 at Memphis, but free throws came back to bite him. They DO in fact matter. As a season ticket holder at Rupp, I’m going to be annoyed to see him there for another 10 years. The lifetime contract was a huge mistake. All he does is recruit & develop players for the NBA, but I do not care about the NBA, and most fans don’t either. He is supposed to coach Kentucky to win national championships, with players drafted in the 1st round as a secondhand statistic. Only winning 1 title in ten years here isn’t good enough. I don’t care how many players from UK are in the NBA. He’s only won 1 title, and if he was actually a good in-game coach he would have at minimum 3+. The loss tonight was beyond inexcusable and the final straw for me. Always gave Cal the benefit of the doubt, but no longer. A different coach with the recruiting resources of Kentucky who can actually coach well would have more than 1 title in 10 years and wouldn’t have lost the games Cal has lost. I don’t know if Cal will win more than 1 title in the next 10 years, yet alone another. That is painful for me to say, but it’s the reality. We should’ve won it all in 2014 vs UCONN, 2015 vs Wisconsin, and we shouldn’t have lost in 2016 to Indiana in the round of 32, 2017 to UNC in the elite 8, 2018 to Kansas State of all teams in the sweet 16, & 2019 to Auburn in the elite 8, along with the Tennessee SEC championship game loss. But it’s all fine as long as we’re sending people to the NBA and have the most 1st round picks according to Cal. No, it’s not!
Gran has full control of the offense
Nothing will significantly change until we get rid of Eddie Gran. Our problems on offense are his fault, from bad play calling to being too conservative on offense. We had multiple chances to put away the game. The players did their part and no-one should blame them. Gran didn't do his part. His play-calling has cost us more than 1 game over the past few seasons. We've given him enough chances & he's proven he won't change and that he's incapable of being a good OC. He's a total joke of an OC. I'm fine with Stoops as HC, but he NEEDS to get rid of Gran as a priority. We are 103rd in the nation in total offense.
It was a good game. Congrats Tennessee, you'll be bowling mostly likely. From the way y'all started your season to finish possibly 7-5 now & go bowling is remarkable. I'm more annoyed than anything. Until we get rid of Eddie Gran at OC, it'll be the same thing all over again. What idiot calls a 20 yard throw when it's 4th & 3 & you have to get a first down?
Get Hulu Live TV or YoutubeTV. Both carry the SEC Network & one is 40$ a month the other is 50$, saves a ton of money. Only difference is Hulu doesn't have a unlimited DVR. AT&T owns DirectTV, AT&T U-Verse, & Sling so I'm not sure if Sling will lose it too. AT&T has already picked a fight with CBS & Fox Sports, so I'd recommend switching from AT&T cable for those who have it, because you risk losing the NFL, certain MLB/NBA teams, & College Football if you stick with AT&T.
You sure about that? I think Texas is just being greedy. I noticed that starting last year, they were making all the other Big12 schools that bring their bands, like TCU & Baylor, sit in the upper decks, even while the other schools were giving good seats for their bands. Oklahoma, TCU, Baylor, Texas Tech, and so on all give at least decent seats for the band even if they aren't directly next to field, but still relatively close. However, Texas is just using that as an excuse to stick the visitors + the band in the 3rd deck, and that's pretty classless considering their stadium is about to fit 110kish with their stadium renovation.
Why would he ever leave UK for South Carolina. It's likely that if FSU sucks the next couple of years, they'll come calling for their old defensive coordinator. That's what scares me.
*A 6th straight win over South Carolina
Lmao if you mean Transylvania University in Lexington, they were called the Pioneers, but like 2 years ago changed their mascot to the bats haha
I'm disappointed about his de-commitment but I wish him the best. However, I do think he could've handled this better by just committing to Nebraska in the first place. He said he only committed to UK originally since he felt pressure to do so from friends and family, but I think he made them angrier than they would've been by doing it how he did. It wasn't about the Mr. Football award either.
If USC has a bad year or doesn't meet expectations next year with Clay Helton, I imagine he'll be the top target
Lmao he put Washington over Michigan as well
Here’s my take: Undoubtedly, our defense is one of the best in the country this year. They’ve played terrific, but if we have any chance of beating Georgia next week, the offense has to compensate. That being said, they’ve proven they can do that, but the play calling has to change. We have great offense weapons in Snell & Bowden, and Terry’s passing accuracy can be bad at times, but that isn’t the problem. The problem has been ever since South Carolina, instead of mixing it up, we’ve been running conservative play calls of straight up the gut on first and second down, and then throwing it for 30 yards when we need 3 for the first on 3rd down. That happened multiple times today, we had 7 down and outs in a row for god sakes. And to make things worse, I don’t recall seeing any form of offensive creativity to try and create space for 1st downs or changing up the calls on those drives. Just the same ole running straight up the gut & those stupid passes. Terry proved he can throw it, he threw for 267 yards. At what point does Gran finally realize that is doesn’t work? I don’t think he’s learned from Texas A&M. We need to go back to what we did in the first half against Carolina and before: Short, quick passes to Conrad/Bowden/Bouvier/Baker, which works. Jet sweeps, designed QB runs, different types of runs instead of straight up the gut, draw plays, screen passes, etc. The lack of creativity is just retarded and not learning from your playing calling mistakes before is even worse. Honestly, it’s not that difficult to see that his play calling is crap at the moment and that he needs to change from this absolutely retarded conservative play calling style and go back to a faster offense that we had earlier. That needs to happen and hopefully UK fans giving him crap for his poor play calling performance during that game(with the exception of the last drive of the game) in a game we definitely should’ve lost will change that. It seems it took him a desperation drive at the end of the game to make him realize the play calling needed to change, and hopefully that stays with him till Louisville, because that’s a game we can definitely just run the ball up the middle and win. GT put up like 500 rushing yards on them, and WF also gave them a ton of trouble. But anyways, the offensive play calling needs to change, because as we’ve proved this season and what that last drive of the game proved is that when we do that, anything is possible for this football team. If our offense plays conservatively against Georgia, we’ll probably keep it close until late in the game when our defense will gets too tired. The defense will give Georgia some trouble regardless, but the offense will have to try and keep our defense off the field and make some things happen.
I think it will honestly be like 28-27 UK is my prediction. Eddie Gran needs to get his head out of the trash can, however. Our offense has been playing conservatively, like crap, and low scoring since the 2nd half of South Carolina. We were on pace to beat South Carolina by at least 30 and we need to keep the tempo up always, not down. I do not see how he does not realize that. Something needs to change & he needs to go back to calling the plays like we were earlier in the season. Also, we have faced a good tight-end when we played at Texas A&m, and I think this team will be looking for revenge, as it will be reminiscent of the A&M game.
It would probably take a UK & UGA loss this upcoming week to prevent the UGA@UK game from being the 3:30 CBS game, followed, of course, by Bama @ LSU. What a day, not to mention a week, that will be. UGA@UK w/tailgating for me, then Bama @ LSU,then waiting till Tuesday to vote & then watching Duke & UK play later that evening. Oh boy...:)
So you're telling me there's a chance...lol
Yes & no to answer that, he likes UK sports enough that he has season tickets for basketball, although I don't know exactly when the last time he came up for a game was. What I don't get is why he's always looking at the negatives of UK football & basketball in all aspects, especially when we're half-way decent in Football this year for the first time in a decade & could have the best year for UK athletics ever. I honestly have never been happier, but I'm just hoping Cal can win the National Title this year with his 3rd super-team at UK & not lose in the Final Four with this team against a team we should definitely be able to beat.
It'll take victories over Mizzou & Texas A&M to be on that list, but I agree, we aren't just a basketball school, though. We've sucked in recent years, that's why we don't get respect, & I completely understand that. That's a recruiting tactic used by schools against us so that people will think that about us & I think we're finally showing that's not true. We were on the rise from 2006-2010, doing great, beat FSU & Clemson in bowl games, & then Joker Phillips destroyed the program, we were becoming a somewhat stable version of Wisconsin if they were in the Big Test East, like a decent 8-4 or 7-5 expectations every year. We became Vanderbilt. It's hard to earn respect when you fall as low as a pre-James Franklin Vandy team. UK has the fan base & funding to compete like a football program, which Barnhart wants, & it's finally paying off. People also forget Kentucky also has a huge fan base in football & basketball & that we travel very well. We've already sold out our ticket allotment for A&M, I would know, I bought 9 tickets in the lower visiting section, haha. But if this keeps up, Kentucky football has a bright future ahead & people will start having to respect us again like 10 years ago. That makes me happy, because maybe, just maybe, Stoops can actually do what Joker Phillips was hired to do after Coach Brooks retired after 2010.
I concur, but I think you're on the wrong tab haha
What is this garbage I see
Once again, you overlook Kentucky because you forget to include that after Terry Wilson, whose decisions cost us 4 turnovers in the first half, was replaced with Gunnar Hoak, we looked great. If he's our starter, we'll do good and I hope it'll shut up the moron who keeps omitting that fact, because it seems like you clearly didn't actually watch the game.
