ESPN’s experts think UK will beat Samford

Vegas lists the Wildcats as two touchdown favorites over Samford on Saturday, and now the Cats have the support of ESPN’s Edward Aschoff and Chris Low.  The two ESPN SEC football experts predict a double-digit win on Kentucky’s senior day and Joker Phillips’ last stand in Commonwealth Stadium.

Edward Aschoff: The Wildcats are coming off a bye and Joker Phillips will say goodbye to Commonwealth Stadium. It’s been a rough three years for him, but he’ll go out with one more win. … Kentucky 34, Samford 14

Chris Low: The Wildcats haven’t won since the second week of the season. They’d like to send Joker Phillips out a winner in his final game as coach at Commonwealth Stadium. … Kentucky 28, Samford 13

We’ll have more on what you can expect from the Samford Bulldogs later today, but for now we’ll take your game predictions. What will the final score be and how will it play out?

    THE SAD TRUTH

    Mitch knows his job security isn’t based on UK football. He took the risk with Cal and it paid off.

    For him, a safe pick for Football keeps him employed so he can Tubby Smith the next 20 years (and hope Cal stays golden).

    I have to admit I was sweating that one, wouldn’t want to go 1-10 that would be embarrassing and losing to a Southern Conference team at that! Hell, at that stage we might have to hire Dooley, I mean Dykes.

    UK is awful at football. They are a one sport school (basketball) and have the most ignorant fans in the entire country. You are all complete idiots!

    Can we not move on and just come out to support this team? I’m concern that if don’t go out and support them that we could see some of these young talent guys leave for a more positive environment. With that in mind can we not get a movement to get people to turn out for the “Cat Walk” to show our support?

    10) At least we win championships in something dude, UGA will forever be a second tier football program (and that is your only sport). So have fun being mediocre forever!

    I’ll be there, and chances are its gonna be a cold one. Hope the team comes out ready, and scores a few times, so owe can send Joker out on a good note. Otherwise, I’m gonna take my @ss back to the car at halftime.

    your/you’re to/too there/their/they’re

    There is a difference BBN. Clearly the rest of the country doesn’t expect you all to be educated, but would it hurt to at least learn those few things? I used to think my UL friend was just being biased, but after reading some of these posts..he’s completely right. You all are just dumb; Point blank, period.

    23) You don’t capitalize after a semicolon. “You all are just dumb.” is actually a complete sentence with a subject (You all) and a predicate (are). “Are” being a version of the verb “be.”

    You probably already knew that, however.
