Yesterday, Cal gave his “We are everyone’s Super Bowl” stump speech a different twist. Cal said that can often give Kentucky an advantage because the teams they play aren’t used to a big-game atmosphere:
“Every game we play, it is an advantage for us because the teams we are playing against very rarely is it (stepping into a hostile environment) happening to them. For us, it is every single game we play, home or on the road, is some specialty day. Either retiring a jersey, giving away cups, shirt night, bat night, family night, McDonalds hamburger night, I don’t know but it is something. It is what it is.”
So everyone’s Super Bowl is also their kryptonite? You might laugh, but that’s pretty much what happened at Auburn. The Tigers hyped up the game so much that they couldn’t handle the pressure and folded. I don’t see that happening against teams like Florida, but Cal’s reverse psychology may work against Alabama, Ole Miss, or Georgia.
By the way, tonight is t-shirt night in Tuscaloosa for the first 10,000 fans through the doors. Considering Coleman Coliseum only seats 15,000 people, I’d say your odds are pretty good.
