As a graduate of both UK and EKU, prayers go out to this young man. I've had many a beverage at the Two Keys Tavern. It was always a friendly place in my experiences. I hope this is just a fluke and a bad situation.
It is intended as pure team motivation. Vince is a master motivator, and his "anger" will carry over into the locker room, and the chips will magically appear on shoulders again, and so on. It worked last year, so maybe it will carry over to this year too. And, I'd love to see some of the media being held accountable for their blathering as well. LOL.
Not true that "It was an interesting start to the tournament, as all 16 teams that hosted regionals ended up advancing to the next round." James Madison U beat Michigan in the Ann Arbor regional to advance to play UCLA.
Congrats on a great season anyway! SEC! SEC!
Apparently the double dribble by UVA was perfectly fine. Bad missed call. But the foul call was correct. Except that it should never have happened if the ref had called the double dribble. Auburn was hosed.
Really don't like how this game ended. Auburn deserved better. So sorry for Tiger fans.
Congrats Auburn! War Eagle! Go all the way now.
Great to see LSU move on to round of 16. Go SEC and Go Gats!
Prediction number 2 came the half! LOL SEC SEC SEC
You may be right about Kentucky. But then again our defense held Drew Lock to goose eggs in the second half of the Missou game, even when our offense was sputtering. We saw what Missou and Lock can do against good teams when those good teams mentally don’t show up (Florida in Gainesville). The Tennessee game was our game to mentally not show up. Our offense sputtered as usual, but the defense didn’t really do much at all. Since then, our defense has gotten back to its usual self (carrying the team), and the offense seems to have improved incrementally. This UK team seems genuinely excited to be playing in Orlando on New Year’s Day. UK fans certainly are! Personally, I think the team that will not be mentally in the game will be PSU. They are not happy with the level of the bowl, and there are a lot of Nittany Lions sitting this one out. Even their most ardent fan boards talk about their level of disappointment in the Citrus Bowl (see Lions247 news board). The level of excitement is just not there. They are looking toward next year already. The fans think this is an easy win, and the team may as well. All the better. Go CATS!!
Fair article. Hope that Benny, Josh and Kash make the most of it.
I agree with Paris10 One Hundred Percent. Next thing you know UK will recruit some lowly 2 star linebacker from New Jersey. He'll probably only have one other offer, from some place like Monmouth. Geez, what a waste of a scholarship that will be. When will our coaching staff ever learn to evaluate and recruit talent???
Interesting that Liberty, a Christian school, might be interested in Freeze with all his baggage...
Expect Loserville to play all out and keep it close. This could be a trap game if we are not careful. Reminds me of Fran Curci's last game. UK beat Tennessee for only it's second win of the season. Coach Fran had already been notified of his termination, and he was just playing out the season.
This needs to be the year they really put a spanking on the cards. Goals: 1. Win by 40+. 2. Benny gets 210 yards rushing. 3. Josh and Kash combine for 6 sacks.
Unfortunately I can't say Stoops, even if the Cats do win out the rest of the season. After Florida, everybody thought TAMU and UGA would be the hardest games, and probable losses. They were. But to tank they way they did against Tennessee was completely unexpected and completely negative. That is the game that tanked the Coach of the Year for Stoops.
Teams have had us figured out since the second half of the South Carolina game. Combine that with our changing philosophy from "playing to win" to "playing not to lose." This team used to play with a chip on it shoulder. Not anymore. Maybe if this team would quit reading about how good they are in the media, and start playing again, we might finish with 10 wins. As it is I am unsure about middle Tennessee or Louisville.
I am glad that Finebaum has put Kentucky on alert. That means the Cats will win by 20! On another note, I just saw a highlight of the Indiana – Illinois game. I miss playing the Hoosiers on annual basis. I think playing a fair to bottom of the heap B1G team might actually help our scheduling strength.
Just wondering. Did they ever name that sewage treatment plant after Kiffen?
I am thinking this UK team will not let the UGA loss seep into the rest of the season. They are simply too mature to let that happen. Goals for the Tennessee game: 1) Beat UT in Knoxville; 2) Hold the Vols to goose eggs; 3) Get to 8 wins on the season; 4) Get to 6 SEC wins. If that happens, then the SEC season will be a success. Best since 1977. Then bring on Middle Tenn and Loserville! Go Cats!
don't forget about the extra 6 in the TAMU game in OT..... full disclosure.
UK will need some offense, so hopefully Terry/Benny and company can dig up some of the mojo they had down in Gainesville. The UK defense can and will contain Gawgia to below their average. So, it will depend on which offense can generate some points at critical times. I am looking forward to it!
Commonwealth Stadium/Kroger Field is one of the smaller venues in the SEC, and unlike many SEC stadiums (Ben Hill Griffin and Kyle Field come to mind), the sidelines are not parallel to the field. So even with the most raucous crowd in UK history, that shouldn't intimidate the Dawgs too much. Hopefully the UK defense will do the intimidating on the field instead.
