  Generally following games, football players will address the media, and more often than not, they give conservative, boring answers, because that is exactly what they are coached to do. That doesn’t mean they can’t be quotable for a story, but you rarely get a raw, passionate response…mainly because it could be a PR nightmare if it was perceived as over the line or bad sportsmanship. However, thanks to social media, players can express thoughts they may not be comfortable expressing to the media. That was certainly...Continue reading »

  The Kentucky football team showed Saturday afternoon at Commonwealth Stadium that no matter how many chances Louisville gives them and no matter how big of a lead they spot them, the Cats just can’t beat Bobby Petrino. Louisville spent a half of football playing about as poorly as a team can play, and Murphy’s Law was in full effect. Whatever could have gone wrong went wrong. The Cards defense who struggled so mightily at Pitt a week earlier allowed an opening drive TD with little resistance. A usually reliable Kyle Bolin...Continue reading »

The Cards are where we expected them to be at the point – sitting at 5-0 heading into Wednesday’s huge tilt at Michigan State.  While the competition hasn’t been the toughest, here’s what we have learned from this squad to date: *Chinanu Onuaku’s confidence and offensive improvement is glaring.  The sophomore is assertive in the paint and is a much better passer.  He’s averaging 9.6 ppg. and 7.4 rpg., while shooting 65% from the field and and an improved 57% from the foul line. *Damion Lee is the go-to...Continue reading »

UofL runs the state in football as the Cards beat UK for the fifth straight year.  Here’s a sampling of some of the reaction from the Lexington media…. *Stoops is facing more pressure after the latest loss to Louisville. On a rainy Saturday in Commonwealth Stadium, Louisville threw three first-half interceptions and spotted Kentucky a 24-7 halftime lead. Yet with a season-defining victory one half of football away, the UK offense went AWOL. After intermission, Kentucky amassed 83 total yards and a whopping two — count ’em,...Continue reading »

The second half of the Florida State game and the second quarter of the Pitt contest stand out the most through eleven games of the season.  In those two instances, the defense’s alignment became swiss chesse – so many holes that an 18-wheeler could fit through.  Houston came into PJCS the second week of the season and put it on the Cards too, racking up 462 yards total, including 226 on the ground.  Against Clemson, UofL gave up 202 rushing yards and against Auburn, the Cards gave up 190. Other than that – albeit against...Continue reading »

Much like last year’s meeting Kentucky brings in a team starving for a bowl bid and needing this win over the Cardinals to get there.
