Football may be over for the Kentucky faithful, but for the bowl-eligible of the college football world, and those still in contention for a national championship– things are just starting to heat up. So while Kentucky may not have much to look forward to this bowl season, at least we can sit back and enjoy what has shaped up to be an exciting finish down the stretch for the best of the best. Here are a few links to get your Sunday morning started…

 

—- The Courier-Journal’s Tim Sullivan called this year’s first season under Mark Stoops a “Honeymoon Season,” one in which Kentucky fans were not quite as tied to win total. Next season though, the Big Blue Nation will pay more attention to how many wins can be totaled at the end of the season.

—- One of the cool stories that has trickled out throughout the time this year’s senior class has been at Kentucky is that of the unique and close friendship between Mister Cobble and Donte Rumph. The two have been quite the pair over the years, winning the heart’s of many fans due to their jovial nature and very obvious close bond between each other. Even though the seniors’ time at Kentucky as football players has come to an end, the bonds will not be broken for many. 

—- The position of quarterback has been the cause of much distress throughout the 2013 season. The questions won’t likely subside as we enter 2014 season, with a slew of quarterbacks poised to return– along with the addition of Drew Barker. Mark Story starts early as he ponders the starting quarterback position in 2014. 

—- In a season for changing of powers in some respects for the SEC and college football in general, most things at Kentucky generally stayed the same according to John Clay. 

—- College football gave the world a treat on Saturday with a line-up of fantastic games, most of which did not disappoint. In the midst of the big time games, the stage was finally set for the SEC championship game: Missouri vs. Auburn. Few, if any, could have predicted that outcome at the beginning of the season. KSR favorite Gregg Doyel takes a look at an unlikely Missouri team who will be competing for the SEC title in only its second year in the league. 

And last but not least, enjoy the call from an Auburn announcer for the Auburn/Alabama finish… Dude gets a litttttttle excited…

    but stoops made so much progress with this team. why is it ending?

    It has been a disappointing season, but the real disappointment is seeing guys like Cobble, Rumph and Williamson having to go out on a sour note. Yes, it has been a disappointment, but all of the yahoos bitching and moaning about it certainly aren’t going to make things better. I cannot think of a UK team that has had to play a tougher SEC schedule than this one just did, and you definitely could see it wearing on the staff and players by the end of the season. Unlike some of the other “microwave society” factions of BBN, I’m not going to give up on this coaching staff just yet. I made that mistake with Brooks and his staff. You guys can rant all you want, but in my eyes this team has made some progress in spite of the record. I think better days are ahead for UK football, and maybe they can get some momentum now that the bandwagon has gotten lighter with some of those “fans” jumping off.

      Probably will have plenty of room at Commonwealth stadium too, Even when it is renovated to remove thousands of seats. Mitch wants to make sure you have plenty of room for your Intimate evenings watching UK football get hammered every week.

    “They’re not gonna keep em off the field tonight!” will live with me a long time as one of the most memorable calls I’ve ever heard.

    Was yesterday the best rivalry weekend games in years? Ohio State-Michigan and Bama-Auburn kept me glued to my chair all day…much to my wife’s chagrin. But even she got into the closing minutes of the Auburn win.

      Yep, amazing finish to the Bama/Auburn game for sure. The entire state of Alabama was probably engulfed in strife yesterday. I wonder if this will mean the streak of SEC national champions will finally come to an end? Michigan almost ensured that Bama would remain in the national championship game yesterday. I still think Alabama is a better team than OSU – they certainly have played a tougher schedule. Too bad for them the playoff system didn’t start this year.

    Go find two or three top notch quarterbacks in the next two weeks when you are out recruiting.
    There is no excuse to only bring in one QB.

    That was an unreal finish and call to a game iv ever seen im still in disbelief . Bama is still the best team in the country
