Apparently, Kentucky is going to the Gator Bowl


Looking forward to football season, but don’t want to have to sit through all the games? Well, my short-on-attention friend, you’re in luck. The website ‘Prediction Machine’ has simulated the outcome of each game of the upcoming college season 50,000 times, and for those people who are forecasting nothing but gloom and doom for the football Cats, the results might be a little surprising.

The simulation predicts that Kentucky will finish 7th in the SEC (one spot ahead of Auburn) and make a trip to the Gator Bowl to play against Michigan. It projects that the Cats will lose the bowl game 31-26 to new Wolverine coach Brady Hoke and his crew, but that’s not the important thing. The important thing is that the Gator Bowl, which Kentucky had a shot to make last year had things gone better down the stretch, is a step up in terms of bowl games and would signal progress for the Kentucky program if this simulation were actually to play out in real life. In a season where many fans expect the Cats to take a step back, that would be a big win. In fact, if you were cheesy, you might say it would serve as a sign that Kentucky is on the #Rise. If you were cheesy.

Of course, this is just a ridiculous computer simulation which has no bearing on the upcoming season, but since it’s out there one would have to say it’s better to be projected to go to the Gator Bowl than, say, to finish last in the worst major football conference in the country. Like Louisville.

Go Cats.

    They have us 3rd in the East, behind USC and UGA. But ahead of UT and (gulp) Florida. If you’re telling me we finish 3rd in the East and beat those two, I’m happy if we end up in the Toilet Bowl.

    2) I think UK will beat both of them this year, could possibly contend in the East. Overall
    the East side is down …. could be a year to contend.

    Who cares? Our long standing AAA credit rating was just downgraded to AA+. We have been AAA since 1917. Thanks Obama, you moron. Glad I went to cash a few weeks ago. the good news is this [email protected] is on his way out the door. He makes Jimmy Carter look like Ronald Reagan.

    7) I’m sure none of this matters to you. It’s easy to see that you don’t have any money in the market or likely on the sidelines. I doubt you even understand what I’m talking about.
