Tom Jurich is disappointed

Need another reason to love the Louisville game being the final game of the season?

Tom Jurich is salty about it and didn’t get his way.

In a press release from the University of Louisville, Jurich said, “I have been a huge proponent that the game should be played as the first game every year. I’m disappointed that it will not be our opening game in the future, but most importantly, we will continue to play the game.”

The two conferences are responsible for moving the game to the end of the year, where it joins other SEC-ACC rivalry games like South Carolina-Clemson, Florida-Florida State and Georgia-Georgia Tech.

So be ready for a little turkey and dressing with your Louisville Hate Day beginning in 2014.

    If the move rubs Tom Jurich the wrong way, then I like it.

    Of course he doesn’t like it.

    1. We are reloading every year, and the prime time to have a chance at us is before we’ve had time to gel.

    2. To them a loss to UK is expected most years, and a win is a big momentum builder. Both options are fine for them at the beginning of the year. To us, as the favorite most years, a loss would be more deflating.

    The UK/UL rivalry game is much more relevant and heated today than the Duke/UNC one. It deserves the same, if not more, attention. Playing the game and the end of the year will help us solidify that.

    What #1 said. Tommy’s salty tears taste really sweet for some reason.

    You could see the “handwriting on the wall” when U of L joined the ACC. The SEC/ACC intrastate rivalry games are all at the end of the year, and the two conferences schedule accordingly. You could see this coming the day Louisville got into the ACC.

    3) Granted I live in KY, so the UK/UL game gets a ton of local press, but I’ve never thought the Duke/UNC football game was important or heated AT ALL. Even in North Carolina. Is it even televised?

    I like it better as the 3rd game of the year. Putting it at the end of the year means we’re pretty beat up from the brutal SEC schedule.

    Typical UK fan, so uninformed that he thinks it’d be unusually late, or at the end of the season, if the basketball game was played in November. It’s too bad for the kittens that Lville’s backup in Gardner is miles better than any cayut on the roster now or for the foreseeable future. Tough luck. Enjoy your basketball rentals, you’re not winnin this football matchup for a long time.

    Good thing I’m not AD, we wouldn’t even play them, it’s a game that does nothing for UK and we lose it most of the time.

    14 we lose it most of the time? are you aware that the series record is 14-11 UK? If you mean “Modern series” then yes, Louisville has the upper hand, but taking away games to make your point right is a Louisville thing to do. We like actual records here, not selected periods.

    #3. you do realize this post is about the football game, not the basketball game right?

    This means Kentucky will end the season playing Tennessee and Louisville either back-to-back, or very close together…I like it!

    The only reason i would like it is because TTN doesnt like it.

    @14…Thank God you’re not the AD, win or lose Louisville is Kentucky’s rival and as such they should play in every sport ESPECIALLY the major ones such as Football and Basketball. Plus, Kentucky has a strong chance to get better with Stoops as HC, and Charlie is (as much as it pains me to say it) a good football coach. This rivalry is about to produce some very important, entertaining games in the near future!

    We are usually playing for pride by the last game of the year.

    I like the schedule…Loserville at the end will be nice at the end of the year…but having said that I would like to see the FL and TN games swapped…I would think we would have a cold weather advantage on the Gaytors when they come up here n goin down there late in the year would almost seem like goin to a bowl game…the dirty vols would be more vulnerable earlier in the year too I would think…but hell, it will never happen…

    Great idea to play Jefferson County Community College the last game — hopefully it will be really cold — should help to cut down on the stink of Pappa John’s and the city — it was nasty there last year after the rain — smelled like a garbage dump — which it is — a toxic waste zone.

    #3… I’m going to venture out and say that most years, even though we have the edge in the all time series, we are not the team favored to win most years. Maybe during their Kragthorpe era, but Petrino & Strong… Come on.

    Tommy, you will be playing in a big boy league in 2014. Not in some half-a** league where you can be the dictator & bully to get your way. Pack your long johns; it may be a cold Nov in Lex next year

    Too bad UL and Jurich didn’t get their way, it was both ACC and SEC who stepped in and said last game! Next year the game may decide who gets to a bowl game. No more cupcake city for the Cards in football!

    The good thing is that this ticks of ol turtleneck, the bad thing is that warmer temperatures, like the kind we experience in late Aug and early Sept,help kill of some of the bacteria that thrive in the toxic waste land.So wear your blue Hazmat suits cat fans.

    This is what a con man looks like. Relevant teams don’t have to constantly fight or whin about being relevant. Tommy is such a lying egotistical douche. The fact he gave Rick a raise after the cheating scandal says everything you ever needed to know about Tom. If you live in Louisville, you are getting hit with 3 special UL taxing districts to pay for UL crap & I’m sure don’t even know it. UL is so great, they can’t raise money on their own, so they make everyone else pay for their stuff.

    Great for Kentucky!! While Louisville plays those cupcakes all year, Kentucky will be primed going against top notch talent in the SEC. Louisville will seem like playing Miami(OH) early in the year.

    I will miss playing Tennessee on Thanksgiving only because I’m in Knoxville for a lot of Thanksgivings and it is often my only chance to see Kentucky football, but I understand my situation is unique. I will miss it, but welcome UK/UL joining the other in state rivalry games played that weekend. As an aside, would it be smart to move the game to Friday to gain more exposure? Seems like there are a lot of really big games on that Saturday and our game could be overshadowed (nationally, obviously not in the Commonwealth).

    Are Mitch McConnell and Tom Jurich related? Look at Jurich’s pursed lips. The resemblance to Mitch is eerie. Or maybe they spend so much time together that they have adopted each other’s mannerisms similar to an old married couple.

    I agree with #41’s suggestion. If we play on that Friday we can get a prime ESPN or ABC time slot. Idk if CBS does SEC vs . ACC games anymore.

    Hhahahahaha! A BCS Bowl? That was a one time thing. The dirty birds will stumble against some blind high school girls team, just like they did last year. This time though they won’t be lucky enough to back into a BCS bowl against a team that clearly doesn’t care. You’re going to be awfully said when the UL lease on Teddy Bridgewater expires.

    No worry about WKU? That’s what you thought last year. Las Vegas thinks diffrerent 3 point spread…I would worry. So, where has Hurtt gone? You have info? Strong not going anywhere he has a 5 million buyout, but is very happy where he is. Over last 10 years we have a winning record vs. ACC teams.
    When Stoops bombs like Kragthorpe UK will be back at bottom, oh your already there.
