    Dude, Tyler Bray threw the game. He didn’t want to win because he didn’t think that they deserved to play in a bowl game. Just ask most UT fans. That’s exactly what they will say about UK beating them last year.

    Are UT fans as delusional as UofL fans?

    Matt, have you seen this WSJ article on Alabama football and their success in recruiting? http://online.wsj.com/article/SB10000872396390444914904577617521477347562.html?mod=WSJ_WSJ_US_News_6
    The article doesn’t question their recruiting, it praises it. It attributes their recruiting success to their recent national championships. Why is it that their unbelievable recruiting success gets praise, but UK basketball recruiting success gets questioned? Is it just because there is such a smaller range of available talent in basketball as compared to football?

    The delusional views of UofL fans is what really made me hate the Cards. The country does not care about UofL sports, especially not football! They could go 12-0 three years in a row and still not get the respect that TCU or Boise St ever got! If they are still in the conference when TCU gets there, they will get waxed every time!

    Totally off subject and just for Central Bank customers: Don’t use your debit cards right now. Central Bank is having problems with communications with their ATM company and the ATM machines are confiscating debit cards and denying transactions. I tried to buy a loaf of bread at Great Harvest this morning and was denied twice, though I knew we had plenty of money in our account. I went right up to the Central Bank branch in Palomar to check our balance to make sure our account hadn’t been accessed without our authorization and the ATM took my card. I went into the bank and the teller gave me the explanation for what was going on. I won’t be able to get my debit card back until tomorrow. Argh!

    #101 Dude you have lost your mind. UF had a similar record and WON their bowl game against a tougher game. UF is struggling because they are coming back from losing Urban Meyer. UofL had one bad year and UofL had a similar record in a terrible conference and suddenly you think you can play with them? UofL fans have lost their mind.

    You defer and then onside kick the opening kickoff. After recovering, throw deep to King for the TD.

    I don’t understand the statement Matt, you could take the ball first in the first half and still get more possessions overall…the only true statement you can say is that by deferring you guarantee that in the 2nd half you will have a chance of having more possessions.

    I personally think the Louisville and Western games are both very important. Joker can recover from a Louisville loss, but CBSSports.com seems to think Western is better than us and if we lose that game Joker will lose all support from fans and the administration.

    Why did that guy have to point out that he dressed varsity as a freshman at his high school?

    If we have a new coach in December or early January I think we could totally be in play for a couple of those Trinity guys.

    McKayla Maroney is not impressed that Larry Joe made his varsity high school football team as a FR.

    It won’t be bad if UK loses…if UK comes close to winning and plays well or even both teams play bad then you won’t have to listen to the other fans. You will have to deal with the Joker haters either way.

    My hatred of Louisville started @ the 1975 NCAA final four. We beat Syracuse in the semis. UL
    then played UCLA. UL didn’t bring their band so the UK band learned UL fight song and played for their game. The UK crowd cheered for UL and we were actually sad when they lost. When we came back for the championship game all the UL fans cheered against us! I swore at that moment(I was 12) that I would never cheer for UL no matter who they played. I actually graduated from UL graduate school but my hatred never changed. I have even done a good job of passing on that hatred to my 3 children! No matter the outcome of Sunday my hatred will continue! Always have and always will BLEED BLUE.

    Matt, why don’t you just wear a disguise when you walk to the game? Some UofL gear? Cards hoodie, a flat bill hat, and some ridiculous fake Oakley wrap-around sunglasses?

    Matt should use the 60million year old purple dinosaur for security at the game. No one will mess with him!

    112: You are right. I just think it is funny that Matt described it as being an issue of math and then proceeded to explain something that goes against any concept of math. He said that there is a 0% chance that you get more possessions if you defer in the first half. In fact, there is the exact same chance of getting more possessions whether or not you defer. The reason to defer is that it increases your chance of getting more possessions in the 2nd half, not in the game. The decision of whether or not to take the ball first has more to do with the tone you want to set for the game. You want to try to get some momentum so put your best (whether it is offense or defense) out on the field first.
