Kentucky should already have enough motivation to come out in their August 31st match up against Western Kentucky chock full of anger and set on revenge from the embarrassment of last year’s game against the Hilltoppers, but if they still need some ammo, just check out WKU’s fan message board on Scout.com.
Many Topper fans are rolling their eyes at the excitement surrounding the UK football program nowadays saying Cats fans have “asinine beliefs” towards football recruiting and that we shall be the “exact same team as last year”. Most all Topper fans picked Western to win the game that kicks off in less than two weeks, and were all fairly confident. They praise Bobby Petrino and his “killer instinct” and his ability to find the strength of his players to be successful.
Here are just some of what WKU’s fans had to say:
I think its funny reading all of the UK smack talk on all of these message boards like they are coming off of a great season….Some of their fans are saying how WKU does not have the talent UofL did and or Arkansas and Petrino will not be able to do this and that..Meanwhile they do even mention its their Head Coachs FIRST ever game as Head Coach at any leveL… I don’t care who your Offensive Coordinator is that is still something to consider if you are spouting off about our Head coach who has had success from Idaho to Arkansas….
I fully expect this to be a very close game. Many UK fans seem to believe that they are going to throttle us and “give us what we deserve” for last year. For those fans, I have two words: Bobby Petrino. While Stoops is promising, this will be his head coaching debut and it just so happens to be against one of the top 10 coaches in college football. Petrino already has a full game scheme to stick it to UK. This opportunity is just too great for him. Believe that. I’m taking the TOPS 37-27
The only way I see us losing to UK this year is if our inexperienced QB, whoever that may be, comes in and plays a terrible game, which is very possible in what will be a big game atmosphere.
I predict “PAIN” and I pity the fools (UK).
They won’t have an answer to Antonio Andrews and Leon Allen and as Andrew Jackson
was quoted to say after our first game against UK 2 years ago. “They ‘posed to be SEC. ‘Posed to be SEC. Nah!
WKU 31 UK 28
Long live Big Red and Bobby Petrino!
I think it’s safe to say the looming game against WKU will be a defining moment early in the season for the Cats, and if we want Stoops’ career in the Bluegrass to start off on a good note, it’s time to take back the state of Kentucky.
