Cats are 9 point underdogs to Vandy

As per usual, the Wildcats open up on the wrong side of the Vegas betting line. This time, Vanderbilt opens as a 9 point favorite coming into Commonwealth Stadium next weekend against Kentucky. Sounds about right. There’s no need to fear

    Personally, I think that pic of underdog should be the football team’s new helmet sticker.

    Why are you still reporting on this abomination of sports. Please tell me more about soccer or volleyball.

    Uk loses by 40+, unfortunately.

    Can’t really say I’d ever see the day that Vandy was a 9 point favorite at Commonwealth.

    What is the over/under for a moral victory against Vandy. At this point, even a 14 point win over over Vandy would only be a moral victory for this season. #hirekirbysmart

    Good News!! Joker opens the playbook to pg. 2 and we only lose by a late FG.

    Everyone is calling for Joker to be fired. And I agree, but we will never have a winning football program, until the administration decides to make it a winning program. I`m 51 years old and I have seen several coaching changes and none have made a difference. The only one that did was Curci and we were placed on probation afterwards. Unless you call going 7 and 5 or 6 and 6 as a winning program and I do not.
    The coaching calls yesterday were horrible, the punt and 3rd and 26 and we run the draw, etc. I`m tired of the 3 to 5 yard play over and over again. But the call that sealed it for me was pulling Whitlow out and putting Towels in, after seeing that Whitlow was moving the team. That took all the rythum (spelling) away from Whitlow and that determines whether the quarterback will be successful or not.
    Do we need a coaching change?? Sure. Will it do us any good??? Probably not. Not until we put money into the program. Recruits do not want to set in lawn chairs to watch a movie screen when being recruited, when the schools we recruit against have a building specifically made for recruiting. They are building new stadiums or up grading the older ones.
    I love Wildcat football and I still watch them. I love these kids because they wanted to play here and will always support them. But, can our coaches recognize talent that we currently have??? Harmon looked good yesterday and he isnt even on the roster. Is he better than the guys who were in front of him?? It looked so yesterday.
    I hope we can turn this around, but can we??

    we could actually gain some SEC respect with kirby smart as head coach. For Alabama to have such a dominate defense it comes down to more than talent alone. It take great coaching and play calling for a defense to be that dominate for this long. Saban may get most of the credit but his DC kirby smart plays a big part in developing those players and that defense. With smart at UK this team is a 7 win team next year.

    13) please forget someone you THINK may be an up and comer as a head coach. The name Saban brings those kids to bama, NOT SMART. If you’re going to pay a couple million to a coach, make sure u KNOW what you’re getting. PETRINO is the ONLY sure thing out there!

    The Cats have quit. Vandy will cover. Just get it over with.

    14 I’ll take the under as long as it’s actual attendance-not tickets sold. Also Vandy rolls big. Just like Missouri they know a feel good opportunity when they have one and they will destroy us.

    15 – no one’s saying UK is going to start getting ‘bama caliber recruits. It’s “what” you do with the recruits you can get.

    15 – petrino could never beat lsu and Alabama at Arkansas. He wouldn’t do much better at uk before he left uk in a worst state for a newer job somewhere else. He did it a Louisville at the falcons and at Arkansas petrino is a one man football program wrecking ball ever where he goes is worse for having him there. Smart is one of the best recruiters in the country, he may not bring in the talent but he evaluates what talent to give an offer to which is why Alabama is so good. That get talent that won’t implode on itself unlike auburn. Smart would have the same uk kids, playing as a top 5 SEC defense next year. By the way no one knew who Dan Mullen or Charlie strong or James Franklin were before they left their coordinator jobs to go to teams with similar circumstances as uk. Last time I checked all three are better than UK this year.

    By the way kirby smart isn’t someone I think is an up and comer. Everyone at Alabama and most the people at georgia(smarts alma mater) know that this guy is going to be a great coach for years to come. Don’t think smart is an up in comer the same way the joke was, smart has been the DC for two national champion teams and likely a third this year. And it isn’t all talent. Lsu has the same talent and was throttled by Alabama in the championship game. That’s coaching.

    Ok Petrino would at least give it a better shot than what we will with Joker!!! No one on any UK forum has ever given a good reason why UK shouldn’t hire Petrino.Until someone does I am going to assume they are all UL fans!!!!

    If we wait until after the season to dismiss Joker, then it will be after Christmas before a new coach will be named. We will then miss out on recruiting. Does Mitch understand this??? We have no Junior or senior class, now. If we did then freshmen wouldnt be playing. Lose another recruiting year and it would take a coach 4 years to turn this around, if possible.

    Ya’ll are 9 pt underdogs to us at your home? Wow you guys really do suck. I hope you get a good coach but I have heard you have an incompetent AD so good luck. I can’t believe the coach was retained after last season. Joker is in way over his head. Basketball is coming up and you guys will rock again. I won’t be there Sat because we suck too haha.

    On the positive side if we beat Vandy Mitch can use that as the reason to keep playing the Joke on us!

    Horrible. Terrible. Dreadful. Awful. Frightful. Gruesome. Pick the synonym. That’s the state of UK football. If the AD doesn’t fire the entire staff, then he should be fired by the president. It’s a joke to watch what’s happening and kids are getting hurt because they aren’t properly prepared.



  32. what about this
    8:49 pm October 28, 2012 Permalink

    UK media alert! Lets boycott interviewing the coaches this week.
    What’s the point? Secret practices. UK has one darn game.
    So lets write, we are young and we don’t know our plays, and blow off media coverage for a week.
    ALL ABOARD THE TRAIN HAS WRECKED.



  33. Season tickets
    8:57 pm October 28, 2012 Permalink

    UK head coach makes 1.7 million a year.
    That equals $4657 a day or $32,599 a week salary.
    $32,599 means it takes 814 season ticket holders each game to pay Jokers weekly salary.
    That is staggering.
    No coaching change, no season tickets next year!

    #25 – What other reasons do you need not to hire Petrino than how he treated the last 3 programs he was with?? All of this is public record, no need to repeat it here.

    If you aren’t aware of these things then you have no business posting.

    #26 – good point and I couldn’t agree more. If we wait until after the season it will be too late.

    But, they’ll wait. No doubt in my mind, Joker will get to coach out the season. Our only hope is Mitch has someone in the waiting to announce as new head coach on Tuesday after he’s fired on Monday….
