Personally, would rather play someone in a bowl that we haven't just recently played in a bowl. I think the players would prefer and be more motivated playing against a new opponent as well. Go CATS!!!
No team outside of an NFL team is going to run the ball with any success against that Georgia line, and I don't think half of the NFL teams could. If we had to play again, we would abandon any hope of running and just call pass play after pass play. No reason to waste plays running. Go CATS!!!
Davis and his fellow linemen are as great as advertised, and perhaps even better than given credit for. They COMPLETELY shut down UK's run game. Just overwhelming. Go CATS!!!
This event isn't going to help those UK fans that want the AD to approve alcohol sells at the games, that is for sure. Go CATS!!!
Congrats Bulldogs, very deserving of that top ranking. Hoping UGa runs the table. Good for the conference to spread the natty around but mostly because you guys deserve it. Too great of a program to go this long without. Go Dogs and Go CATS!!!
If tickets are selling for 2-3 times face value then what a great compliment for where Stoops has taken the program. Most of my life the UK tickets would be 2-3 times less than face value at most road games. Go CATS!!!
Good article and very true. Go CATS!!!!
True, coach Brooks showed everyone that UK could be more than a basement dweller in football, even without the total backing of the administration (money wise). Coach Stoops has gotten the financial backing in facility upgrades, recruiting budget, and coaching salaries. You throw that together with great coaching and you see where we can go. Go CATS!!!
Watching the game, I thought going for two was the right call. At home, go for the extra point cause you have the fans help in OT, on the road go for the win. UA has had a great season so far and I hope the Hogs can finish strong. Go CATS!!!
Unfortunately, and until proven otherwise, I would have to completely agree with your statement. Until the offense can show it can score points throughout their games then I go into each game uneasy. Each side of the ball needs to do their part and as of now the offense is coming up short. Go CATS!!!
Florida and Tennessee are responsible for much of my football related PTSD over the last 40 years. The talent difference over the years has explained much of the disappointments, but even during the occasional tight game they have made the offensive, defensive, or had a favorable (or non) call from the officials that won the game for them. Gators have played better than I thought going into the season (going toe to toe with Bama is always impressive), so its hard to see my CATS coming out of top. Would gladly like to be wrong though. Go CATS!!!
Somebody apparently didn't get enough love from their grandparents. They have people you can talk with that might help you get through your resentment. I know who can get past your anger with a little help. Good luck. Go CATS!!!
KyBlue agrees with this statement. Go CATS!!!
Louisville doing Louisville things. Always giving you something to talk about and it's never good. Go CATS!!!
Well done Dores. Way to represent the SEC. Go CATS!!!
Outstanding job Hogs, can't imagine how many TX's fans, boosters, and administrators are thoroughly dejected and angry right now. Go CATS!!!
Good game Tigers, seems like every game with you guys goes 12 rounds. Would like a breather game but this is UK football so those are few and far between. Mizzou is going to make teams work for the win and those who don't are going home with the "L". Go CATS!!!
You kick to FG in that situation. Only way you don't is if your kicker has had trouble with makes, which he hasn't. Go CATS!!!
Well done Rebs as this Cat fan never tires of seeing little brother reminded of his place in football, basketball, soccer, tennis, and so on. Go CATS!!!
Probably has something to do with being on the wrong side of the scoreboard after most of the games. Hopefully that trend continues on the football field as well. I do like the rivalry with Mizzou though, we are in the same weight class (along with SC, MSU, Ark, and sorry to say Vol fans, but UT too). Maybe Stoops can take us up a weight class eventually. Go CATS!!!
A few years ago UK had a football player under investigation that resulted in no charges by the authorities but the UK student conduct review found him guilty and he was kicked out of school. Also strange that although several witnesses reported being assaulted with pictured injuries, none of the players have been charged with assault. Go CATS!!!
Can honestly say that I've never had an employer ask me at job interview if my university had AAU membership. Go CATS!!!
You are correct SCary, TV powers are the 800 pound gorillas in this playoff discussion and they are largely going to want teams that draw the most eyes (as in SEC). The SEC will always be well represented in whatever playoff system is in effect at the time. Go CATS!!!
While the masses clamored over Playoff ‘expansion,’ the real college football brokers continued the inevitable march toward ‘contraction’
I think if lower level schools are ever pushed aside for some super football conference of 50 teams or so than the popularity of college will decrease. I follow college football because UK is included in the playoff race (yes I know they have little to no chance but still they are included). If they were not part of the challenge then I would have little interest in following beyond whatever league formed for the not ready for prime time schools. I'm not a fan of Bama, Trojans, Longhorns, or any other school that would be included in the super conf. As such, I would not care about watching them play since UK is not part of the package. I think this would be true of Hoosier fans, Mountaineer fans, Cowboy fans and so on. I'll watch my kids play a little league game but not I'm not going to go watch yours, unless they are competing against mine for the trophy and I want to see how good they are, so to speak. Go CATS!!!
Tier 4, I'll take it. Most of my life has been spent in tier 6 with Vandy. Go CATS!!!
QB play will determine the success of the season, what we've had will result in 7-5 season. Have something even slightly special than 9-3 is possible. Also, no more injuries would help too. Go CATS!!!
UK vs. Mizzou is large for both teams. Already have eight tickets to do my part for the Cats. Will be pulling for the tigers to take out the eagles though. Go CATS!!!
Agree, membership in an exclusive club, embrace it and proclaim it to those you just defeated. Go CATS!!!
I don't think we lesser powers will be voted out. The big boys don't want to play a powerhouse every Saturday, too hard mentally and physically. Need what they see as a easy win. Not saying we are, but to the big boys that's how they see us. Anyway, with Stoops we have made it a little harder to get their "easy" win. Go CATS!!!
