Kentucky does not pile on, and it's gotten us beat so many times... Usually against Florida. Remember, we were up big against the Gators a few years ago going into the half and Stoops decided to shut it down and not score against a defense that was unable to stop anything we conjured up. Come the second half, enter Kyle Trask... the rest is history.
Also, Michigan might have an opening soon if Harbaugh continues this downward spiral.
None of the top tier guys are going to South Carolina, especially with teams like Texas and Tennessee possibly having openings soon. South Carolina is in the same situation that Kentucky was in when we hired Stoops. Every up and coming head coach was waiting for the Tennessee job, which, to be honest, turned out to be a blessing. We coudl've ended up with Butch Jones.
I would not be shocked to see SC pull this one out. They have a knack for coming through when things look the most desperate for Muschamp.
Honestly, if Eddie Gran is still the offensive coordinator, it won't be a battle. Mizzou will hand the Cats a dreadful beating.
Have you all noticed that the Auburn fans were unable to see the ball touching the returner's hand?
It is highly doubtful Gatewood will ever see significant playing time in a Kentucky uniform. The coaches are too loyal to Wilson and Beau Allen is a supposed world breaker that is far beyond what he should be as a true freshman and will be the likely starter next year if he continues said progression.
It's because he plays for Kentucky. The consensus rule of thought is if someone plays for Kentucky, they can't be very good.
They may not be sick or showing symptoms, but could very well transmit the virus to someone else that has a weaker immune system.
I mean, if they really want to make a QB change, they could always insert Lynn Bowden and play the triple-option wildcat all game long.
Just watch... You say that about the mayor, but I would not be surprised if Kentucky's governor forces our team to quarantine for two weeks whenever we return from an away game.
One of these "cupcake" teams that have been assigned to the powerhouses is not like the other. Kentucky could very well finish the year as the number 2 or 3 seed in the East. At the same time, they could very well finish as the number 4 or 5 team. Regardless, they are much closer to challenging for a division title than Mizzou, Vandy, Ole Miss and Arkansas.
I agree. I was doing my best to justify those divisions. However, how is that any different than what we've got going on, now. LSU and Alabama in the west will be going for gold every year. Who in the east can say that? Georgia is good at getting to the SEC championship and losing. Florida, I think, is still being overhyped by the media. I could be wrong, though. If we get to play this year, we'll know for certain.
Before bringing in UCF, I would perhaps look at Cincinnati or Memphis. Maybe even Miami since their fairly new to the ACC.
For the sake of basketball, the SEC needs to add Louisville. It brings in Kentucky's biggest rival, and presents a twice a year matchup that rivals Duke/UNC in the ACC. It makes sense for football as well, because Louisville has had its share of success lately, and is usually one of the better teams in the ACC. I'd also bring in Clemson. They're an SEC team in the Atlantic Coast Conference. Bringing them over would be a natural transition. Now, bringing in these two teams allows for Kentucky and South Carolina to share the conference with their natural rivals. Alabama/Auburn Georgia/Florida Tennessee/Vandy? Kentucky/Louisville South Carolina/Clemson Mississippi State/Ole Miss This leaves LSU, Mizzou, Texas A&M, and Arkansas without their natural rivals? Who would they match up with? Mizzou, obviously, pairs with Kansas. Texas A&M, while they make a big todo about playing Arkansas every year - thanks to Jerry Jones and the old SWC- are more at odds with Texas. And, you could make the argument that LSU and Arkansas are rivals thanks to the Boot. Who then, should be sent packing? Which rivalry would be more important to the SEC? Texas A&M and Mizzou are the newcomers and their natural rivals are outside of the conference. LSU and Arkansas, they're not going anywhere. If it were my choice, I'd say goodbye to Missouri. They don't bring much to the table in basketball or football, even though adding Kansas to the conference lineup does look enticing basketball wise. A&M has fared a bit better in both of those sports as of late. So, I suppose that means I'd invite Texas to join the SEC and round out the 16-team conference. How on earth would you divide this up? You’d go against the grain. Everybody wants to create an East/West division. Instead, how about we go North/South. SEC North: Clemson, Kentucky, Louisville, Mississippi State, Ole Miss, South Carolina, Tennessee, and Vanderbilt SEC South: Alabama, Arkansas, Auburn, Florida, Georgia, LSU, Texas, Texas A&M This may seem a bit skewed with the higher-powered teams in the South, but you must remember in football, Clemson is a threat to win the national championship every year. Kentucky, Louisville, and Tennessee are on the rise. In basketball, Kentucky is a threat to win a national championship yearly. Louisville is slowly climbing back to prominence and Tennessee, under Rick Barnes, is usually a very good team that can beat anybody in the country. The weakest link in the North is Vanderbilt, and while many dismiss Vandy and think that they should be tossed to the independents, they’ve got one of the best baseball programs in the country. South Carolina looks weak now, but they’re on top of the conference in women’s basketball, and I don’t think anybody is going to be touching them anytime soon. In my opinion, this is the best layout for the SEC. I’ve said for years that Louisville should’ve been added before Mizzou and Clemson is already an SEC football team with an SEC caliber coach. It's very doubtful it would ever happen, though. Too many egos.
How many years in a row has Kentucky beaten Mizzou? Three? Four?
These sort of remind me of the Create-a-Team logos from NBA Live 2000.
Don't forget, Kentucky also has Chris Rodriquez back with Smoke and Rose. We have a three-headed monster in the backfield along with some fairly talented redshirt freshmen that'll be chomping at the bit to get some snaps. Beware the Hydra?
While I despise Tennessee just as much as the next guy, I cannot remember the last time they were Pre-Season Top 25.
I'm just going to repeat what everybody else is saying.. Where is Notre Dame and Michigan? Especially Michigan!
Pete Maravich, hands down. Why is this even being discussed?
Auburn should be on this list no lower than the 2-spot. TAMU should have never even been considered. I'd throw Tennessee or Georgia on there before TAMU.
Louisville in the Orange Bowl?!?!?
