Phil Steele is picking Kentucky in the upset victory over #25 ranked Louisville on Sunday. I’m going to go with 21-17 Kentucky. What are your final score predictions?

    We can win by one and that would be perfectly fine with me….JUST BEAT LOUISVILLE! #CardHateDay

    My only predicition is that at some point in the game it will be 3rd and nine and Joker will call for a five yard out.

    Other than that you hope UK can at least make a good showing for pride’s sake.

    My gut instinct is that Louisville should be a small favorite. But Louisville’s confidence is bizarre and without any basis from their talent. I think they’re seeing most analysts picking them to win an AWFUL Big East and and inferring from that they’re actually good at football, not that the Big East is terrible.

    I’m saying UK by 3, 24-21 on a last possession field goal! I’m going as far to say 6-6 on the year and we win our bowl game baby… 7-6. The Legend of Joker continues!

    We probably won’t beat Louisville but we’re their toughest test of the season.

    UK 108 UL 0, or maybe that was my score from NCAA Football 13… In all seriousness, I believe the Cats win a close one on the road, 27-21.

    UL 31 UK 17. In my opinion, UL is not as good as their fanbase believes, but good enough to win at home. Being the 1st game of the season will benefit us more than them though, so upset isn’t impossible. We finish 5-7 and Joker stays. We’re going to be a legit 8 game winner in 2 years, just give coach a chance.

    Side note: Anyone see Kyle Bolin get waxed last night? He looked like doo doo butter. Yes I rooted for the team from Tennesse because I can’t stand that kid.

    Jill, you’re a dumbass. Where did #9 say anything about ranking? He/she said “toughest test”. First game of the year, rivalry game, etc. Who is your highest ranked opponent by the way? UNC at 30? I hope you all go undefeated and still don’t sniff the champ game.

    we will win and we also will win the national champinship because we are the best football program ever. Strong is the best coach ever. he is better than Bear Bryant or Nick Saban. we also have the best facilities ever…our facilities are better than NFL teams. You cat fans are jealous.

    His early season picks are usually pretty solid. Once you get to about week 5, winners get very difficult to pick on a consistent basis, even for him who is one of the best out there.

    Both teams are awful, but I think UK is out to prove a lot in this game. UK needs this game to make their season, keep Joker’s job, and have any shot at a bowl game. UL could lose to UK and still go to a BCS game because playing in the Big East is like playing in Division 2.

    Lil Bro will have to bring it if they expect to have any chance against us. We’ve won 4 of 5 and basically gave them the game last year. Sorry, but our offense is MUCH better now and I just don’t think UL looks like a very good team on paper.

    UL isn’t good enough to just show up and win, they’re overconfidient. UK will be hitting because of UL trash talking. I’ll take UK +14 pts., but like UL to win on final drive 24-20.

    U of L 42 – UK 7…and I am a UK Fan….This season is gonna suck. They will dominate time of possession and special teams! Even our head coach says we cant field a punt….gonna spend the day backed up with crappy offense.

    I believe there’s a small chance that turnovers play a large role – and this time, it benefits UK. Don’t expect a win but don’t be quick to write this one off.

    If Danny T. and Winston G. were still on the D-side, I’d give us a chance for the upset. But they aren’t and we won’t stop their O. Get ready for 0-1.

    Hey Jill, what is “…the rest of the folks on her…”? What does the “on her” mean? Did you mean “on here”? Before you come to this site and ridicule people, please learn to read and spell.

    Little brother is just jealous because we lead the series records in both football and basketball. We have EIGHT national championships and they only have TWO. They haven’t won one in nearly 30 years!!! Hell we are even given credit for winning the football national Championship in 1950 with our win over undefeated Oklahoma in the Sugar Bowl. I guess that trumps ONE BCS bowl win.



  42. jill
    9:14 pm August 26, 2012 Permalink

    yeah but we won the national championship in 2006 and we have the best facilities. At UofL our sidewalks are better, our trash cans are better, our doorknobs are even better!! And don’t get me started about how much better our light bulbs are…not even close. So you all can have all your Banners and Championships and we will keep our better sidewalks and light bulbs.

    UK scoring 30+? That’ll be the day. I’d hit the lottery before that happens. The “Dirty Birds” will lose though to the Wildcats in a close one: 17-14.

    29, 30 – If you really are UK fans than I don’t really see how you can defend what you are writing. We were 5-7 last year and were in 3 other games late in the fourth quarter. This is the same UL team that lost to two mid-majors last year, barely beat us by 7, and still lost 6 games with a terrible schedule. You might think Joker is awful and we are awful but that doesn’t mean we lose to Louisville. What has changed between last year and now that makes us so much worse?

    It hurts to write this but I say 28-21 UL. I am only picking them because it is in Louisville and it doesn’t sound like there is going to be much blue in the stands. I do say we build off a solid showing in Louisville and make a bowl at 6-6.

    #42, my point remains you get on here and ridicule people all the time. All I am saying is that you should learn to spell and write before doing so. All those great facilities at UofL and they didn’t teach you how to spell…



  49. duh
    9:56 pm August 26, 2012 Permalink

    UofL is so great with all their wonderful facilities…well they also have something else and it is called crime. They were recently ranked as one of the most dangerous college campuses in the USA…I guess that what happens when your school is located in the ghetto!!

    Actually UofL won 7 of 8 before the dope was hired. Cards breeze to 2nd in a row. Bridgewater will leave here 4-0 against the wannabe’s. Cards by 18

    #49 Uk’s crime rate was higher the previous 2 years. UofL is ranked #44…Vanderbilt is ranked #46. Harvard is #2. Wow…look out. And correct me if Im wrong but isnt there a campus safety alert as we speak on your campus? Yeah thought so.



  56. duh
    5:03 pm August 27, 2012 Permalink

    Well Daddy, the crime at UK is nothing compared to what happens at UOfL everyday!!! I doubt Teddy Bathwater will be 4-0 because after the NCAA concludes their investigation of Clint Hurtt’s dirty recruiting Bathwater will be ineligible.



  57. duh

    Also, I find it hilarious that UofL is so pathetic that the only thing they have to hold onto is mediocre football. You guys think you are great at football. Where are your National Championships? None right. If your conference weren’t so weak and you played in a real conference like say the SEC, you guys would go 3-8 every year. Even at that, you guys still have lost TWELVE GAMES over the last two seasons. Not what I would call a football power.
