Kentucky Opens Up as Underdogs


Underdog

According to Vegas Insider and the Wynn, Kentucky is not expected to win this coming weekend against Mississippi State. The Wildcats open up as 11.5 point underdogs to the Bulldogs, coming off a win against Louisiana Tech.

If we’re being honest, this is a steal. If you live or are visiting the city in the desert, take Kentucky.

  1. The Rest of the story

    Cats should be at least that much or more . The run and pass D really suffered against a poor Auburn offense. Also Towles has a bad habit of making very poor decisions under pressure. Cannot see a win here but hope for the best. Six wins is most this team can achieve this year and that won`t be easy.

      Just stop watching them, dude. It’s obvious you can’t handle it. Go watch baseball.

    2. The Rest of the story

      Sorry my observation upsets you so. Not everyone here has to drink the look aid and believe something that isn’t so. Keep believing in the hype of a program that still has a long way to go and competes against 4&5 star players in a league with the 3 star ones UK has. It is numbers my friend and the Cats are running uphill against most teams in the SEC.

      “The Rest of the story” – What’s the largest margin in a loss for the Cat’s this season? We could be 6-0 or 0-6 but we are in every game. Ole Miss beat Bama but just lost to Memphis. It’s pretty obvious you don’t know shit about football.

      Again, you should just not watch. It’s obviously upsetting you too much.

    A stat I thought was worth noting since our next game is against Mississippi St.; Pass attempts/interception ratio.
    Towles, Kentucky 200 pass attempts, 7 interceptions
    Prescott, Mississippi St 225 pass attempts 0 interceptions

      Amazing stats. Thanks. Well, I guess that takes Patrick out any Heisman talk this season…..

    2. SnowShoes

      That means Prescott is due for a few… I’ll take the stat as a plus for UK 🙂

    MSU, UT, and UGA , will show us what we got, and how far we need to go. I hope we get one out of these three. If we get a complete game from everyone we will compete, if not, beatdown city.

  4. Never ever do this

    If you took Kentucky against Auburn, you were a loser.
    If you took Kentucky against Eastern Kentucky, you were a loser.
    Take Kentucky Bobby. Sounds like you know what you are talking about.

  5. Blow out

    This game will probably get ugly, hopefully it will get to the point where we at least see Barker for a few snaps. 38-13ish is probably what we’re going to be looking at here. The next 3 weeks or so are going to be a nice little shot of reality for a lot of people, very similar to last year.

    1. Roger

      I think in reality most people expect us to lose the next three games. Reality is, before the season, most people thought that we had a 4 game stretch, starting with Auburn, that would likely result in 4 losses. We hoped that we could steal at least one, but most rational fans knew that four game stretch would be tough.

      Also, the first 4 games that included SC, Florida, and Missouri. Before the season, most people were hoping for 2-2 in the first four games. Many publications said that we had to steal one of this first 3 SEC games to have a chance to get a bowl.

      The problem is, we beat a down SC team, a down Missouri team, lost close to Florida. Because of this, some people felt like we had arrived. Truth is, no matter how you slice it, more times than not in the SEC, we are going to be going against teams with more talent and depth. (Talent based on the number of stars out of high school). To win against more talented teams, you need to play smarter and play fundamental football. We have done that in stretches but don’t seem to be able to do it for a whole game. I really like our coaching staff, but as they have admitted, they need to improve also. In terms of experience, our players and coaches are considered young.

      Anyway, a few years ago we were getting blown out of most every game. Now, we are competing better. I have always looked at rebuilding a football team as a 5 year process. If in year 5, we are still making the same mistakes, then it’s time to take a look at what needs to be changed. Until then, I hope to see progress, which i have seen thus far in Stoops first three years.

  6. Realist

    The Mississippi State run game up the middle will be relentless. UK will extremely miss the big guy and UK’s #69 will continue to be welcomed to the SEC. Take Mississippi State. Give the points.
