Ah yes, a 6 team playoff with only conference champions. Except that you put Clemson and Alabama in the same conference and still put them as the #1 and #2 seeds. This is just a not very well though out attempt to get Clemson and Florida State in the SEC while also going back to 12 teams. Neither of which will ever happen.
It's not a reasonable explanation. Louisville benefited from a massively weak ACC as much as Saterfield being a good coach firstly. But returning bad linebackers doesn't fix a bad run D, and Louisville's Oline wasn't any good either. They did not belong on the same field as Kentucky in the trenches the past two seasons. So basically there is no real chance at all that Louisville will be a better team than Kentucky next year - because UK will be better on both lines, better on defense, and finally have a real QB back. This is really disappointing because O'Gara has been one of the few outside of the local media to give Kentucky football and Stoops respect. Louisville could very well end up with more wins than UK because of the ACC/SEC difference, but they just won't be a better team. And that's the criteria he says hes using. Just an unreasonable and insulting stance to take.
Dead giveaway a writer or analyst hasn't watched UK is to say Asim Rose instead of AJ Rose
Torn patellar tendon, he will be lucky to be the same explosive player when he’s able to come back next season. Horse collar tackling is a penalty for a reason
No votes for Kentucky again from the media. UK is equal to 29th in the Coaches'.
Yeah there’s not a lot of trash talk from us to Florida. Just USCjr, Mizzoo, and Vandy - teams we are 13-2 against in the last 5 years
Obviously not a Mizzoo fan but hasn’t Florida lost by like 30 twice in a row to them? I’d pipe down if I were you
The vitriol at the “bold prediction” post on here where USCjr would struggle against Carolina and have to play Helinski to win was hilarious...because that bold prediction should’ve been right
Does this mean you have the worst team in college football? Or is that Tennessee?
Yeah 3x I don't understand why we've been hearing anything from USCjr fans for the last 5 years. I also don't know how you could be at all confident in beating a superior program in UK at this point
USCjr is the type of program that could struggle against almost any P5 team in a given game. You guys were blown out and shut out by Virginia last year after all
Google Kentucky at Eastern Michigan, we paid a $1.15 million buyout to get out of a trip there. Whether or not the department can afford it doesn't change the fact that there is no good reason to continue to set these up with MAC schools
Except that we will end up paying over $1 million to buy out the game in Toledo, like we have for the last two G5 road games
pairs is actually right about something here. Screw Toledo, give me Kansas, Indiana, or some other Vandy-ish P5 school, rather than a stiff buyout, a game I’ll barely keep an eye on, and a crappy crowd
Do you often just go around saying stuff that is wrong? USC had a football team 4 years before USCjr did, and is a vastly superior program in every relevant metric
USCjr does seem to have Tennessee's number lately, maybe they can grab a win there and sneak into a bowl game
Hahahahaha Yes we should start a chat after 9/28 because USCjr hasn't beaten UK since the first year of Obama's second term. The denial of your new spot in the pecking order is hilarious - Spurrier is not walking through that door
LOL. UK passed USCjr as a program like 3 years ago
USCjr has always out recruited us, but nobody on their team on on their staff (while at USCjr) has beaten UK. We beat the breaks off them for two years in a row in fact
Did you see your rushing total from last years compared to ours? Is your O line going to be able to improve on that? 4 of the last 5 matchups have been down to the wire...last season wasn’t an aberration, it was just finally breaking the mental block
Last year matters because Kentucky won by dominating in the trenches and more than doubling Florida’s run total. Kentucky returns a solid O line and a solid front 7 while Florida’s O line will be a mess. And I would take that bet neutral site 100% of the time, because you know what two back half of the season opponents Florida and Kentucky had in common? Mizzoo..UK won at Mizzoo and Florida lost at home by 21
With the Michigan and LSU wins last year people forget that Florida lost at home by double digits to Kentucky and Mizzoo, and were down 31-14 at home to South Carolina late in the 3rd before storming back. Florida will be good but they’re not head and shoulders above the rest of the East like Georgia is
Also where is this? On CBS's site they only have the top 10 released and it has Georgia at 4, LSU at 6, and Florida at 8
The CBS 130 is a weird ranking to be honest..I remember preseason last year this ranking had Kentucky 80th in the country, even coming off back to back 7 win seasons
^ This guy thinks that UK has been going 2-10 for all eternity until 5 years ago. No, USCjr was Stoops' biggest win only in the first year of our current 5 year streak. The following season UK beat #25 Mizzoo (and began a 4 year streak against them), the year after beat MSU on a last second field goal and followed up with a win on the road at #11 Louisville (with a Heisman winner QB), and then the year before last finally took care of Tennessee - a much more important game than USCjr. Congrats on your years with Spurrier, they are by far USCjr's best in their history and won't be repeated again any time soon..Kentucky and USCjr are actually very historically comparable programs - UK has more conference championships, all-time wins, and a better bowl record as well as a claimed national title...But hey hang on to those "21st century" accomplishments because you guys went 0-11 in 1999
LOL remember when drew lock couldn’t get a first down the WHOLE SECOND HALF in a home game with the lead? Credit to you guys for beating Florida and Tennessee all the time, but no, you are not a better program than Kentucky
Yeah I see no reason to think Kentucky is losing to an inferior program...Kentucky passed USCjr up years ago. The people in Vegas are only concerned about setting a line that will get equal bets on both sides, not actually picking winners...to nationwide bettors who don't realize that USCjr hasn't beaten Kentucky since the beginning of Obama's second term, this would seem like a fair line
The reply to the other guy was a joke..I brought up people not asking if UK would go 6-0 because I think it is similarly ridiculous, and would be disrespectful to other teams on the schedule to just gloss over them and imagine the circumstance of being undefeated 2/3 of the way through the season. The only programs in the SEC that have earned the right to speculate about them starting with 3+ conference wins and no losses are Alabama and Georgia - everybody else is susceptible to being middle-of-the-pack or worse
