Forde says UK/Western is college football’s 17th most intriguing game


Our ole buddy Pat Forde is ready for some football, and has a list of the 25 most intriguing college football games this season. Kentucky actually made the list at #17, for their season opener against Western Kentucky on August 31:

17. Western Kentucky vs. Kentucky in Nashville, Aug. 31. No, this game will not have any national implications. But it is the return from exile of new Hilltoppers coach Bobby Petrino. If he can beat what should be a bad Kentucky squad and then take down a shaky Tennessee team the next week — two schools that had no interest in hiring Petrino last offseason — how many athletic directors pondering a coaching change will forget all about that motorcycle wreck in 2012?

Of course, Forde fails to mention UK’s new coach, Mark Stoops, and the buzz he’s generated around the program, but hey, it’s Forde. The fact that he didn’t throw in an NIT reference is progress.

    Some people call me the “Forde” syndrome.

    Bash Forde all you want, but I can tell you living outside of the state now, UK football is still being spoken about like a automatic W. Until Stoops can change some minds, don’t think people are going to mention Stoops and the “buzz” around the UK football program.

    Believe it or not, Petrino is the biggest story of that game.

    Forde is a soap opera writer. His sports knowledge is almost non existent. This game isn’t a top 100 game in the realm of college football. Just a way for him to slight UK, by not mentioning them. For anyone who doubts this, we can gauge the importance of it by how much time ESPN or national outlets donate to the game in highlights. Him being willing to discredit the hiring of Stoops or Jones at UT over 1 game is laughable. It shows how little he knows about what both are doing in recruiting. Stop reading The Fraggle Rock lookalike and Pitino cheerleader.

    Forde is about to start writing things like “Tom Brady Gives Birth to Alien Baby” in the National Enquirer. Guy is a joke with no real sports knowledge.

    1 thing for certain… been a long time since kids from both these two schools (again, a long time!) -since these kids AND FANS have been this jacked up for a football season and game to start. New coaches, themes, etc..

    #2. That’s fine by me. I plan on getting fat with UK -4 against WKU. Cats should roll.

    New recruits, Z’Darius for example, aren’t even in the discussion. And remember the before/after pictures that were sent out of some of these guys? Things started turning around immediately with this staff.

    Every single UL game should be on this list…with their ranking and historically bad schedule for a BCS team, if they lose one game they are among the most overrated teams in recent memory.

    14..that’s was dumb! How old are you 13? WKU wins this one!

    Actually that was intelligent. You must be 13 or just not very smart in general to say otherwise.

    Petrino will only be there 2 seasons tops, UK should win this running away. All I want for Christmas is to beat Uvel……severely. Beat them like that stupid little red headed lil’ brother they are, then while the score’s 37-14 with the Cats in the lead with .03 seconds to go, score another just for extra measure……GO CATS!

    16 – If by “getting fat with UK -4 against WKU” you mean that you are going to take the Tops to win because the “Cats should roll [over]” then I think you will be a rich man by the end of the night. Tops take this one by at least 2 scores, write it down.
