I think this game will be won or lost in the trenches. Which ever team is the more physical and controls the line of scrimmage will win. Kentucky is deeper now than I’ve ever known them to be. We have good talent at the skill positions to help Terry Wilson. If the offensive line gives him a good pocket so he has options running the rpo I like Kentucky’s chances. I have a lot of respect for Auburn and think they are a very good team. But trying to bring in a new OC with the Covid virus taking away so much practice. I think its gonna be tough for them to fully install a whole new offense. But I honestly believe it’ll be a great game to watch. Win or lose I wish Auburn all the best after Saturday. Go Cats!!
IMO if the kids are gonna be paid then the scholarship program should be discontinued and those scholarships should go to non sports students. If they need paid they need to learn the responsibility of paying rent, tuition, food and so on. I know at Kentucky out kids are given new dorms to live in. They showed them on our news when they were built. Large apartments with hardwood floors and marble countertops. They have professional chefs on staff to fix their meals. Who gets treatment like that and complains “hey we aren’t getting enough”?? Just stop and ask yourself what a scholarship plus all the benefits cost the universities. I think if a kid can market their name and get an endorsement deal that’s great. But asking for athletes to get more and more while other smart kids are getting little to nothing and going into debt to pay for their education is crazy and it’s unfair.
Report: Kentucky assistant Vince Marrow ‘in talks’ with Youngstown State regarding head coaching position
Man this would be a terrible blow to our program if he leaves. He’s an excellent recruiter especially in his native Ohio. I hope UK gives him a massive raise to keep him in Kentucky.
Congrats Gators I said I thought it would be a win by a touchdown. I was 1 off! Lol sorry for Franks and wish him the best. This game is quickly becoming a rivalry game to look forward to. Stoops should have pressed late in the first half but he seemed content to go to the half with a lead. Too conservative. But it was a good game good luck the rest of the season
Lmbo a USCjr fan talking about UK like they’re still a bottom feeder. How about 5 in a row vs your powerhouse program lol. UK under Stoops has recruited good talent and our recruiting classes are getting better. Plus we actually have a coach that knows how to win a football game. UK has surpassed South Carolina in the east in every measurable way. I think our game with Florida will be a close game. I think it absolutely comes down to UKs o-line being able to get push up front on Florida’s front 7 and making gaps for our backs. Sawyer Smith seems capable in the pass game and if they stack the box on us I think he’ll burn them down field. Franks is going to face pressure you can bank on that. UK will pressure him all night and force him into quick decisions. I think he’s prone to mistakes in that situation. I feel good about our chances in this game. This has been an extremely competitive game for the last several years except one game and I expect it will be again.
Our secondary is young and lacks experience but they played ok so far. Eastern Michigan had a 5th year senior OB that gave em some problems. But they’re learning to keep everything in front of them. I think it’ll be decided by one score either way. Our O-line will be the best Florida has faced yet and obviously Florida’s D-line will be the best we’ve faced. Both schools like physical rough lines that try to impose their will. We’ve got some good running backs again this year also. Actually if you look at it top to bottom UK has more talent that it’s had in years. It’s gonna be another good game I think.
Rapid Reaction: Unbelievable! Jalen Hurts rescues Alabama in dramatic fashion to beat Georgia, win SEC title
Great game, Great Win! Congratulations Alabama!! Roll Tide!!!
Ya know Georgia used to be my 2nd favorite team. I always rooted for them but never again. I figured they would beat us but I don’t think I’ve ever seen a fan base as belligerent and disrespectful as Georgia’s. Congrats on your win tonight. I’ll be sure to post a comment when Alabama whip your all’s a$$ in Atlanta and Tua hangs 50 on your so called elite defense
I was in the stands last week. If it gets any louder we’ll need ear plugs! Lol
The anti UK bias on this site is really amazing. Did anyone bother to look at the results Calipari has produced?? All those final fours and national championship games? We have one bad year and these nut job “analyst” come out of the wood work crying the sky is falling! I’ve never been a fan of the one and done trend Cal has brought to Kentucky but there’s no arguing with his success. I wish we’d go back to keeping our player 4 years so the fans could get to know them better but come on man. I think Calipari has a 82% win record at UK. I guareentee Roy Williams doesn’t.
I read on 247 sports that there’s grade issues with him. Idk but they say he’ll probably end up taking the JUCO route. I hurts our class either way but if players don’t sign in December now it’s obvious they’re still looking around and may flip. I wish the kid well where ever he ends up
Paris Your a Louisville troll aren’t you? Your to stupid to belong to any other fan base. Snell didn’t fish btw he finished. Dumb a$$
Rapid Reaction: See you in Atlanta. Alabama stomps Clemson to set up All-SEC national championship game
Congratulations Dawgs and Tide!! We were rooting for you both up here in the hill of the Bluegrass. Now I gotta root for the Dawgs and the Eastern Division but I happy either way it goes because it’s another championship for the SEC
I think with the ATM UK games being poorly officiatedby ooc officials there’s absolutely concern for other SEC match ups. This was blatantly biased officiating. There is resentment because two SEC teams made the play offs and now the conferences left out will let their officiating crews do the damage that their teams are incapable of doing. I’m proud of our team for not quitting and playing hard till the end. Our program is improving and clawing its way toward becoming a solid presence in the SEC East.
You are an absolute idiot and a troll
Edit: I’m not knocking him. Sorry
I don’t think I’ve ever heard of an AD going on the road recruiting for one particular sport. I thought an AD oversaw the internal workings of all the sports programs. I’m now knocking him helping them at all if the new HC is on board with it. But am I wrong? Do ADs at other schools do this? I know Barnhart at UK doesn’t.
Ain’t got no coach on floppy top. It should have said . Instead ain’t no got no. Sorry Vols but I couldn’t resist poking a little fun
Glad I ain’t on old floppy top down in the Tennessee hills. Ain’t no got no coach on floppy top recon they never will. Floppy Top you’ll never be winners of the SEC. Good ole Floppy Top Floppy Top Tennessee.
Congrats State fans I hope he does a great job for you guys.
Congratulations Dawgs I hope you guys win out the rest of the way. I’d love to see an East team win the Sec championship. But we hope to return this favor to you next year on Kroger field! Lol
What Stoops really said was thanks for the extension and raise idiots. You pay me well to put you back in the basement!
How’s that working out for you guys? You fired Miles for not winning the west and your nowhere close to it this year either. Maybe you guys would have been better leaving a Championship winner in the position versus an Ole Miss re-tread. What do you think?
If they win out does Brady Hoke have a shot at their Head Coach position?
I think we have the same record as LSU so what title are you gonna relish?
Coach Stoops contract extension has nothing to do with being a “Basketball School” idiot. It’s called an incentive. He also got a 250,000 dollar bonus for winning the seventh game this season and will get 250,000 for each additional victory. Kentucky is finally trying to claw our way out of the basement in SEC football and people like you ignorantly take it as something negative. The extension clause was put in for stability in the program. So we don’t have a carousel at the head coach position. He gets a 2 year extension for winning 10 games in a year also. I think I speak for all UK fans when I say I’m sick of hearing the “basketball school” crap
I feel sorry for Vols fans. This situation is becoming a national embarrassment for a true blue blood program. There’s no love lost between UK and Tennessee on the field or in sports generally but even so I feel bad for their proud fan base.
Thanks dv. Tennessee played their hearts out last night. That young quarterback is gonna be special. Imo. He held his poise and made the throw time after time knowing he was gonna take a hit. The future is brite for both programs with the talent they have. I look forward to seeing this game become a true rivalry that's competitive every year.

Coach Stoops isnt going to be on a hot seat because of this game win or lose. Will our fan base get more vocal if they lose? Probably. But the administration is firmly behind him at U.K.
