So I have been away all day due to my trip to Eastern Kentucky (which included stops in London, Corbin, Pineville, Middlesboro, Harlan, Hyden, Hazard and Jackson) and am now officially exhausted. But we dont die, we multiply and its time to get ready for Gameday! There are a lot of things that could make this Saturday depressing. We play a team that is an overwhelming favorite, against an offense that has given us fits and the weather is supposed to be terrible. But it is football in the fall in the Commonwealth and a night game a that….how bad can it be. The football team has invested a lot in this game from a recruiting standpoint and I am going to be ready to pull the Cats through…as much as someone can while not being allowed to cheer in the press box.
On the basketball front, Adrien Payne will be taking his this weekend. That is a huge visit for the Big Blue and it is important for Calipari to make a good impression during the festivities. While the football team might be helped by rain, the basketball team needs the sun to shine bright on our old Kentucky home and for him to have a swell time. And oh yeah, Payne is so good that Matt Pilgrim calls him a beast.
Here is where we are today…we will have posts getting you ready for the game and then a LIVE BLOG BEGINNING AT 5:30 PM. Do not miss it as we will be blogging the entire game this time (or at least the vast majority of it). It should be a fun day and its time to get some Gator meat once and for all….
