Some "fearless" prediction. Tennessee does seem to be getting better, however. I think the Cats will be ready, just don't know if they will be able to perform.
I don't know where else he would go, to be honest. A group of 5 school would be a demotion. An upper level power 5 school might be a little more likely, but FSU fans really didn't seem to be too turned on by M. Stoops (B. Stoops was a different story). Another power 5 conference team wouldn't be that great a situation either. Rutgers? Indiana? No way. Maybe Iowa, but only because it is his Alma Mater. Another SEC school? Where? Miss State? Missouri? Don't see that happening either. He wouldn't be considered for any upper level SEC schools yet, if ever. Plus he is building up a program in Lexington that never existed before, or at least not for a long, long time. That is a potential claim to fame right there. Go Cats!
I really don't think Mark Stoops has done enough (yet) to be considered for FSU. Kentucky fans have the patience to take this in stride, not so much in Tally. Besides, next year might be pretty good in Lexington. Just wait and see.
In regard to the last sentence, I think Stoops was saying that UGA has the talent level to win games even if even if they are not playing their best game. It was a statement of respect. He sometimes states things awkwardly. In terms of the game, if the UK team that showed up against Florida and Arkansas shows up again, this may be a competitive match. If that other team shows up (like against Miss St and USC) then it will be a blowout. I think UGA will be up and ready for this one.
UGA will be primed and ready for the Cats on Saturday. I hope the UK team that played Florida and Arkansas shows up, an not the team that played Miss State and SCarolina. It could be a competitive game.
I agree with Michael. Paris is not a true UK fan, but he is typical of many UK fans I have met through the years. They criticize Calipari for not winning enough championships. They criticized Pitino, they criticized Tubbby, they criticized Joe B. Hall, they even criticized Rupp when he was getting old. They always were able to criticize UK football because it wasn't very good for a very long time. He wants the "best available" coach? Maybe we can lure Bill Curry away from Alabama again. That was a great hire at the time. These "fans" simply don't realize that harping on the coach or AD really isn't constructive criticism, it is just harping.
Very sorry for Franks as I was very sorry for Terry last week. Prayers for their rapid recoveries.
I am somewhat in agreement with you, after seeing the limited snippets of Sawyer's career (the Dollar General highlights and the game last Saturday). He may make better passing decisions than Terry, and maybe his arm strength is better. The one area where he may be lacking is the run game. Terry could flat out run. I am quietly confident about this weekend. #Bringit.
Agreed. I liked what I saw last week. We will be competitive. #Bringit
I am looking forward to this match up, regardless of injuries to both teams. Go Cats!! #Bringit.
I respectfully disagree with you on this particular game. When UK/UL game kicked off the season, we would frequently get national prime time Labor Day (or the Sunday prior) air time on ESPN, or even CBS. Now it is barely noticed on the ESPN-Z or some version of the SEC network. The other rivalry games (UF-FSU, Iron Bowl, Egg Bowl, Clemson-SCarolina, Michigan-OSU and the others) are all fine at the end. They all get good coverage on the many networks. A down-card match up between two Commonwealth rivals just gets lost in the mix. Let's not forget that Kentucky/Tennessee was the last game of the season. They were probably a bigger rival for us than we were for them, but occasionally we'd pull off the upset. My opinion. Other opinions may vary.
Josh Allen is a class act, and he deserves all the best.
I liked it so much more when the UK-UofHell game was played at the beginning of the season. The winner usually went on to a great year, the loser tried to salvage something the rest of the season. Now this game is lost in all the other cross-state rivalries that take up the last weekend of the season.
I am cautiously optimistic about the 2019 season. The Toledo game was a slow start, but the second half went very well. I am not overlooking this weekend, but I am really looking forward to 9/14 to see what this team is really is capable of doing. #BringIt
The defensive line and the line backer corps seem solid, but he secondary is suspect. Everyone will be picking on them all year. Hope they grow up fast.
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!
