Florida Opens As A 13 Point Favorite

No Quarterback? No problem. At least that’s what the folks in Vegas seem to think according to the latest odds. Kentucky will be a 13 point underdog on their home turf when they try to end the 26 year streak next Saturday under the lights. Considering Louisville only opened as a 7 point favorite the spread seems a little high then again the Cats have struggled to put up any points on the Gators the last couple of year.

So what do you think? Do the Cats cover, get blown out, or shock the world?

    There’s an ESPN poll asking how much Florida will miss Driskel, the options being a lot, a little and not at all. Every state chose a little except Florida, who chose not at all. I’m wondering if that’s a reflection of their confidence in the second string QB, or their lack of confidence in Driskel.

    They actually scored more points with the backup, but Tennessee gave up the ball too much too.

    they. have. a. quarterback.

    they beat tennessee with “no quarterback” and we are nowhere near as good as tennessee. oh wait, i guess that week off to practice against terrible players will be the improvement they need, right? come on, someone say it…

    Every since Louisville beat Florida in the Bowl game, we have heard how it was a fluke. That Florida just wasn’t interested. That Louisville was not as good as Florida and that bowl game didnt mean anything. KSR constantly makes fun of Louisville fans for thinking they are as good as one of the SEC powers. If that is really the case, It would seem to me that we should expect Florida to open as a heavier favorite than Louisville, HMMM, Western beat us, Tennessee killed Western, Florida beat Tennessee. Why would anyone think we are close to be able to pull an upset? Oh, Now I remember, In football that is all we have is hope. Well, here’s to hoping that the dreadful streak ends. GO CATS!!!!!!

    Lets see what does the gayturds have at quarterback. A backup with good running ability but unproven on the road. Fld. by 14? Murphy is no Bridgewater and Teddy had less than a stellar day against the Cats defense. Is anyone saying that Murphy is better than Bridgewater? Rather foolish thought huh. Cats beat the spread and have a shot at the upset if the offense can do anything against their defense. Remember they have injuries in the backfield.

    It makes me sad to think how amazing Randall Cobb could have been in an Air Raid offense. A Tavon Austin-like impact.

    Yeah, the UF > UT (by 14), UT > WKU (by 32), WKU > UK (by 9) food chain we have seen thus far really makes me think that this is a very fair line from Vegas. I know that logic doesn’t always work out, but other indicators don’t look good either. This would be a good year to beat UF given their problems, but this just isn’t the UK team to do it. Maybe a few years ago when we were making bowls and winning 6+ games a year I’d feel more confident. That said, go Cats! Let’s pull off the upset.

    No one is figuring in the Joker factor. Since he joined the Gayturds, the are no longer the Gators. Cats win due to the Curse of the Joker.



  13. foodchain. really?

    To those doing the foodchain relation with Western, need to stop. Western had 7 turnovers against UT. They were laying down fumbles everywhere, and they still scored 20. I do not care who you are, if you turn the ball over 7 times, you are losing.

    To those also being super negative about our team, need to go away and not respond on football threads. This is Stoops 1st season! We all understand what this season was going to be, so give the ridiculous, over the top negativity a rest.

    Now we know why UL called a time out with 2:44 left, up 65-0, during a running clock game, to add on a touchdown. Gators lose starting quarterback for the year and opens 13 point favorites vs Kentucky and Louisville opens at -7 1/2 against Kentucky. Maybe Vegas does know more than we think.

    So, maybe our backup will come in and star!

    So let me get this right…Against the best team the world had ever seen we were a 14 pt. dog and now against a lowly 19th ranked team it is the same spread…funny?

    Roger,

    Got news for you, brother–websites devoted to Cardinal Athletics, and the Louisville fans that post on those websites, make just as much fun of UK and its fans as KSR does of them.

    I told my UofL buddies after the game that the Cards won the Sugar Bowl because they were better prepared for the game; and, better coached during the game. That being said, if those two teams play 10 times during the regular season last year, Florida wins 8 or 9 times. Florida played 4 teams that were in the Top 10 at the time Florida played them, defeating 3 of them. Louisville didn’t even play a Top 20 team last year until they met the Gators. Last year’s Florida squad had superior talent to Louisville; but, superior talent doesn’t always determine the outcome on the field (i.e. see Kentucky-LSU 2007)

    As “pedestrian” as Florida looked yesterday, Louisville looked just as “pedestrian” against Kentucky last week. They may have had an off week; but, the team I watched at Commonwealth Stadium last Saturday did not look like the #7 team in the nation, at least compared to the other top teams I have watched so far this season (i.e. Alabama, A&M, Georgia, Clemson, Stanford, LSU, South Carolina, etc.). It’s really going to be difficult to tell how good Louisville is this season because of their schedule. But, as long as they win the AAC (which I can’t imagine them not doing!), they will get another chance against one of the “big boys” in a BCS Bowl come January.

    13. I believe Florida beat us one year in a game they threw 7 interceptions. The Steeler beat the Oilers in 1978 in a game that they had 9 TOs in. Florida St. Won a game in 1969 in which they had 8 TOs.
