The facts are in front of you, where should UK fall in line? Only two of the other eleven teams play two teams from the top six BCS conferences. Georgia however, plays Boise State in addition to Georgia Tech, so I will count them as the third team with a tough schedule. Facts show that Louisville being the toughest team on our non-conference schedule probably gives us the title of weakest non-conference, but not by as much as most like to believe. I wouldn’t mind dropping the Louisville home-home. They offer us nothing.

What does everyone think about our schedule? Should we drop UL for someone else? Should be add a better opponent as a second game? What say you, Big Blue Nation?

We Are Just Over 8 Days Away!

We are just over eight days away from the kickoff in Nashville, Tennessee against the Western Kentucky Hilltoppers. Here are some stories to help pass the time.

Budding MLB Star Looks Back on Days at UK

Cleveland Indians young star, Jason Kipnis, was once a Kentucky Wildcat. He looks back on his time in Lexington as a learning experience.

“Being a good player in high school, and then going to redshirt at Kentucky, to be honest I did not know how to handle it,” he said. “I was immature and took the wrong steps, probably body language, everything was just not the way it was supposed to be.”

“It wasn’t anything really bad. The coaches and I didn’t see eye to eye. But looking back on it, I can’t really blame them. Skill or not, talent or not, I probably didn’t have the right attitude they wanted to see on their team.”

1 Down, 1 To Go (#19)

Kentucky finally broke through at Vigor HS (AL) last week, when they received a commitment from S Jacoby Glenn. Glenn could be the final safety taken in this class, but another is not out of the question with so many talented players left on the board. Jacoby will play alongside former teammate, Eric Dixon, in Lexington, when he arrives next fall. The tandem is hoping at least one more current Wolf joins them. JaMichael Winston is a highly coveted player at a heavily coveted position for the Wildcats. The Cats will continue to pursue him to fill a need. Glenn is a wiry 6-foot-1 and 175 pounds. He could also play cornerback on the next level. I seem to be in the minority believing that he is a safety.
