There Can Be Only One

highlander

Well we are officially less than a week away from the start of the 2011 UK Football season so it’s time to start a little friendly debate.  I will have an in depth pre-season survey for you all to fill out over the next couple days, but until then I want to hear your thoughts on this hypothetical.  If you can only have one of these things happen this season – which one do you go with? Put your answer in the comment section and let me know why your choice was right.  We’ll have the real answer in the night post tonight.

1.) Beat Louisville

2.) Win a bowl game.

3.) Beat Florida.

4.) Beat Tennessee.

5.) Randall Cobb comes back for his senior year.  What?  It could totally happen.

Whichever one you pick, you’re forfeiting the possibility for the rest.  In reality, all four are probably going to happen for the Cats this year, but I want to know what’s most important to you as the fan if you could only have one.

Sound off.

    Get it through your collective heads…the #1 goal of UK football is to win SEC games. Get past this beat L bullshit, win SEC games and that pissy-assed game takes care of itself.

    Beat the Vols. Just to get it over with. We have beaten Louisville 4 times in a row. 5 would be nice, but breaking a 20 something year streak is better.

    BEAT TENNESSEE! Didn’t even have to think about this one.

    But in order it would be: beat UT, beat Florida, win a bowl game, beat UofL.

    beat Tennessee. We own them on the basketball court, so beating them at football is something that would be awesome for this season…any season actually.

    20) After 26 in a row, you will put it off one more year? CRAZY. Beat Tennessee.(period)

    6:28 pm August 28, 2011 Permalink

    I think this is a trick question cause I don’t see anyway of winning a bowl without us having the talent to do several of the other ones, so I’m going with winning a bowl. But I do think we stand a really good chance of surprising Florida this year.

    1. Beat Tennessee
    2. Beat Florida
    3. Beat Louisville
    4. Win our annual trip to a WGAF Bowl

    I don’t want to see Cobb back because he has escaped the program and is now in a much, much better place. Bringing him back here would be inhumane after he has spent time in Green Bay.

    Tennessee. Haven’t been alive for a win over them.



  33. Will
    6:52 pm August 28, 2011 Permalink

    Florida for sure. Florida is by far the biggest win on that list so it seems like the obvious choice. We are now in a different class than Louisville, Tennessee will be beatable for the foreseeable future (especially with uk’s upgraded size, speed and talent trending over the last several years) and getting to a bowl game is the primary goal (with the exception of the bbva disaster last year). MY REAL PICK: going going 3-1 vs ole miss, miss state, Georgia, and tennessee – combined with the that rest of the schedule, would set up a landmark season and make the future look bright.

    Tennessee. They some dirty snitches. Losing to them 2 years ago was like watching my dog get hit by a truck.

    Beat Florida. Sure the Tennessee streak is worse, but it’s going to be a lot harder to find the Gators on a down year than the Vols.

    I am going for the bowl win as that means we would have to at a minimum win 3 SEC games to beome 6-6 and bowl eligible.



  42. Helvete

    Beat UT. Louisville is in a joke of a league. A florida victory has happened in the last quarter century. We’ve won several bowl games recently.

    Beat tennessee or florida and its a fantastic special season. Beat ut between the two but barely.

  49. kentuckygentleman
    8:37 pm August 28, 2011 Permalink

    #41, that would be assuming we lose to UofL? Some on here think we have to beat UT or Florida to get to a bowl, not true. Cats haven’t beaten either of these teams since the 80’s but they have been to five straight bowls. Cats could win all four non-conference games, beat Ole Miss and Vandy and make a bowl game. I would rather make a bowl game by beating Tennessee and Florida.

    I think of the four options a win against Louisville is pretty certain. Nothing else on the list is likely.

    as long as that win was against UT.



  66. Tokyo now Tampa Satchel

    Beat UT!!
    Anytime you lose to the UL it is a bad thing, but if there was one thing that would be the remedy for that would be a win over UT. It would still be really hard to take a loss to UL in Lexington, but we have beat them 4 years in a row so it would be better to me to end the streak with UT!
