    [email protected] WLAP is replaying a Matt Walsh show. Went to the attic and found a gadget with an electrical plug and numbers on it. I think it’s called raid-e-o? Guess that’s what I’m stuck with tonight. 2nd and inches on the KY 7 3 min into the game.

  36. niaps

    No defense and absolutely a horrible QB in Whitlow. Cats will score very few points with him leading us as he just cannot pass.



  37. Bowl game
    8:03 pm August 31, 2013 Permalink

    HAHAHA to all the f’ing idiots predicting a bowl game this year. Better just hope Alabama State is banged up so 1-11 is possible. Smh at the fools. This is the same group of ‘spose to be SEC’ leftovers. Better give Stoops 4 years, if he sticks that long.

  40. niaps
    8:07 pm August 31, 2013 Permalink

    Why can we not play Smith and Whitlow at same time. Smith can throw to Whitlow and give the offense a lot of fire power. At least Smith can pass.

  51. Billy Ray
    8:19 pm August 31, 2013 Permalink

    So, this WKU team had 1 returning catch from the WR position. Can’t wait to see what uofl does to us. They have 5 .r 6 good wr’s and 4 good rb’s. Will be ugly.



  52. Hal
    8:20 pm August 31, 2013 Permalink

    So – is UK or Western running the air raid? I cringe at the thought of the Alabama game.

    I would be pleased if we played ANY defense.

    Whitlow cannot pass long so everything will be short

    Everyone remain calm. We will be fine. Trust in this staff and the players



  57. CATandMONKEY
    8:23 pm August 31, 2013 Permalink

    We are playing ten yards off all their receivers and our tackling is reminescent of Nuclear Minter.



  58. niaps

    Goof grief I hope they play Smith the second half. Whitlow is painful to watch.

    They have more athletes. Our defense looks very slow. Secondary is only as good as pass rush. They have hit us on the mouth now how do we respond



  62. niaps
    8:26 pm August 31, 2013 Permalink

    I am being too kind to Whit he just sucks at QB. Now that is out of the way. If he is our only hope back there we may as well forfit the rest of the season



  63. CATandMONKEY
    8:27 pm August 31, 2013 Permalink

    Matt, this IS UK fans being calm. I have the TV on in two rooms, the live blog on the desktop and my phone and the radio on in the kitchen. I hope that my multimedia presentation will somehow bring us luck….or perhaps one of my game broadcasts will somehow be different than what I am watching on TV.

  67. Hal
    8:30 pm August 31, 2013 Permalink

    Western is 1) swarming to the ball and 2) playing much more physical. I expected more from UK with the way this website was pumping this team up. This supposedly great d-line has only got near the qb once and committed a late hit. Also – air raid means you have to throw the ball.



  68. Do whut?
    8:30 pm August 31, 2013 Permalink

    A passing offense needs a passing qb. Whitlow may be athletic but his decision making downfield is just terrible.



  69. uncle mike
    8:33 pm August 31, 2013 Permalink

    There is not shit going to be alright unless we get ten turnovers and a miracle



  70. niaps
    8:33 pm August 31, 2013 Permalink

    No way can anyone blame this season on Stoops or his staff. Joker screwed us and will affect this team for at least 2 more years.



  71. Dude
    8:34 pm August 31, 2013 Permalink

    On a serious note. Maybe the OC came into the game not wanting to show too much against WKU and underestimated BP. That still doesn’t explain the UK defense. I expect UK to start showing more as the game progresses. D has to get some stops.



  72. go big blue
    8:37 pm August 31, 2013 Permalink

    We knew we would have to run the ball a lot because our defense is so bad, what where you expecting? Let’s see- not a lot of receivers or receivers with experience- usually means more running. We have to use our size and wear them down.



  73. niaps
    8:39 pm August 31, 2013 Permalink

    Use our size? They are as big if not bigger than us. They are pushing us around at will.

    Our offensive line is pushing their defensive line around.



  78. Hal
    8:45 pm August 31, 2013 Permalink

    Ok – screen pass is not working, move on To something else Neal. Wku 1st punt with 2 mins left in 1st half – that makes me sad.



  79. niaps

    Say what about our offensive line? They just got punked



  80. niaps
    8:49 pm August 31, 2013 Permalink

    Our only hope is that Western fumbles the ball 5 or 6 more times



  81. niaps
    8:52 pm August 31, 2013 Permalink

    Lets face it Cat fans we are VERY lucky to even be in this game at the half.

  83. niaps
    8:56 pm August 31, 2013 Permalink

    Stoops is staying with Whitlow in 2nd half. We may as well play the old single wing offense as running is all we got. Not one pass down field the 1st half tells me even the coaches don’t have any faith in Whitlow’s passing.



  84. niaps
    9:01 pm August 31, 2013 Permalink

    big blue you need to be real with what we have in this team. We are stuck with joker players and our chances are bad all year. It will be most likely 3 years before we are where we were before joker took over.

    16 passing yards in the first half. Didn’t someone say something about an Air-Raid? Stoops is pathetic.



  91. Lucky
    9:16 pm August 31, 2013 Permalink

    If not for 2 unforced to’s and a dropped td pass, game would be over.



  92. go big blue
    9:16 pm August 31, 2013 Permalink

    I agree that it will take us a couple of years to build back up and joker left us wanting for better players. But I do believe we are better than western. I thought our D line would play better and that has hurt us. I think we will wear down their defense in the second half- I we win 4 games it will be a great year for us. 3 is more like it.

    OMG – there is a demon that descends upon offensive coaches at UK. Each is worse than the previous. We’ve traded bubble screens for stupid runs. This team will go 0-12. Stoops rhymes with poops.

    Is Joker running the offense? this offense is very predictable. if i can figure out what they are going to run, something is wrong. I agree with 97, I don’t see how we can win a game this year with this offense. the defense isn’t much better. we may beat alabama state, but that’s about it. U of L will beat us by as many as they want to.



  99. go big blue

  101. niaps

    With no QB and no defense not too much will happen in the positive direction for UK. Lets face it the coaching staff is the lipstick on the pig. It’s pretty but it is still a pig. Gee I loath joker phillips.

    The “D” line is pulling a no show. The “O” line is nonexistent. WKU goes big run big run big pass andwe cant stop them. More than losing I hate to have to put up with the witless trolls on this site drooling over catching us down again.

  109. Patches
    9:51 pm August 31, 2013 Permalink

    No doubt Joker (POS) left this team under water, but nothing I see says Stoops has a handle on moving forward. Get Smith in the game for Christ sake! Just wait for the 2014 decommits to start. Stoops era is all hype, no substance.

    9:59 pm August 31, 2013 Permalink

    I really thought this staff was going to bring improvements. Instead, we get the same old stuff. I know its one game but this team is not prepared. Just like with Joker. The D line is getting pushed around, there are no adjustments being made anywhere, and the vaunted air raid has been grounded. Sheesh. What a HUGE letdown.



  121. Coach Poops (I mean Stoops)

    The real little brother.

    On this website, I often see the reference to Louisville as the little brother and Kentucky as the big brother.

    It is safe to assume that most people would agree that college football is bigger than college basketball; look at the revenue figures if your logic disagrees.

    Therefore, it should be assumed that the school with the best football team, now and historically, would be the big brother in the state’s college athletics rivalry while the schools with the lesser football teams would be the little brothers.

    Considering that UK has the current third best college football team in the state and has no history of success, we must defer the Big Brother status to the top college athletic program in the country, the University of Louisville.

    Statement was thought out without biased intended.

    10:13 pm August 31, 2013 Permalink

    regardless of the outcome…all of us UK fans knew going into this what we had (very little) and what we didn’t have (a whole lot)…so no outcome tonight- good or bad- should be any sort of a shock at all…we were hoping for better tonight, but…we were NOT willing to hire a scumbag as our coach in hopes of turning things around magically overnight…let me ask any Hilltopper fan this question: Would you let Bobby Petrino babysit your eleven year-old daughter? Yeah, I know…this is football…so honor, decency, and a moral compass doesn’t count…right? And if Bobby P stays at WKU for more than one year I will be shocked…but who cares, right? It’s about bragging rights…not about doing what is right. And this is not sour grapes. I am a lifelong UK fan and I was scared to death of even the possibility that they might even interview this scumbag for our coaching vacancy. Thank God that Mitch Barnhart showed more class than that is all I can say. I knew from the get-go that there would be no way I could root for and support a “man” of Bobby Petrino’s character. It’s just not possible. Bobby Petrino can coach football and can instill confidence in his team. There’s no question. But he’ll be gone from Western in a year or two at best…and it will be interesting to see where these two programs are in 4 to 5 years from now…I’m disappointed in this evening, but not anywhere near as disappointed and embarrassed as I would be if my school had hired someone such as Petrino. Kudos to Barnhart for hiring Stoops and not even giving that guy an interview…in the long run, all of BBN will be glad for it and far better off for it…don’t abandon ship folks…we have the right coaching staff in place…this is not basketball…we cannot suddenly bring in 4 top recruits and go from the NIT to the top of College basketball…we KNEW where we were after Joker left the cupboard bare…our blue-blooded hearts wished for a better outcome perhaps a bit too soon…but we have GOT to stay the course…definitely NOT jump ship…I don’t care if we were to go 0-12…Stoops is my guy…and if we…the fans of BBN…abandon ship? So will many of our top-rated recruits…we have got to stand strong and stand together…and stay there…if we do that, we will succeed…if we do not? Well…let’s not go there and find out…GO CATS!

    With this defense they should onside kick every time they can. It is probably unfair to compare Stoops to Petrino. Petrino is one of the top ten college coaches in the country versus stoops in first game. Hope Stoops learns that defense has to be more aggressive.
