    So I got into a twargument (twitter argument) last night with a fellow UK fan. He kept saying U โ€œofโ€ K and I said that true UK fans never say the โ€œofโ€. It got pretty interesting, but I want to know from you all, was I wrong?

    Bluegrass you’re right….only time we say U of K is when we sing the fight song!



  10. Jax Teller

    1 – No, it’s UK. U of K is horrible.



  11. Bluegrass
    10:05 am August 22, 2012 Permalink

    I agree, it’s just UK.

    BUT someone else made a good point that in the fight song it says U of K. Didn’t know how to argue that.



  12. J in Orlando
    10:06 am August 22, 2012 Permalink

    The correct answer is they are both right, but “UK” sounds way better

  46. Head Bussa

    CoShik Williams is a good running back. Ryan doesn’t know what he’s talking about. The dude is not an every down back, but he is extremely fast and has shown an ability to do a good job toting the rock when asked.



  47. KyGuyBleedsBlue

  51. philip
    10:18 am August 22, 2012 Permalink

    I’ve had that same surgery twice. Loose pieces of cartridge or bone are now taken out with tiny instruments through very small holes in the skin, not long slices, which is why recovery is relatively short.

    52-philip-Same here, though my knee still swells all the time and hurts, but my injury was very severe, a large section tore and folded back on itself and by the time insurance let me have an MRI and surgery, I ended up with 1/2 a meniscus.

    I’m not really concerned about not having Clemons. I don’t think he’s nearly as great as some seem to think. I thought CoShik played very solidly last year and I think Mobley and Taylor will combine with him to give us some good firepower in the backfield.

    153 — Newton is too slow to be an effective runner in the Wildcat.
    152 — It is certainly not a dead formation and many teams at the college level still use it in some shape or form. What’s not to like about getting an extra blocker on a run play, while still threatening the defense with a pass? Even some pro teams will run a play or two out of it during games.

    Yeah, it’ll be around here and there for a wrinkle, but you aren’t going to see it used as heavily or exclusively like has been in the past 10 years. It’s like every other offensive scheme. Once teams learn to scheme against it, its value is diminished.

    159 – not comparing Newton to Tebow by any means but Tebow isn’t very fast either – he’s powerful. I don’t why everyone thinks it takes a track star to be a running QB. The key to the wildcat formation is the dual threat so you keep the defense on their heels.

    161 — I disagree with you. The Wildcat offense is here to stay. Obviously defenses are getting better against it, but it will always allow for 11-on-11 football vs. 10-on-11 football and that fact alone is why it is always valuable. You will see the Jets run it this season with Tebow, as well as other teams with good runners that can throw a little will more than likely install it somewhere in their playboook.

    167 — Tim Tebow would blow Morgan Newton off the field in a race. He certainly is fast for his size and that is why he is so powerful on his runs. He ran a 4.7 40-yard-dash coming into the NFL. Tim Tebow runs with quickness, agility, and power. He also is agile enough to decide when to stop running and throw the ball. He has a lot of ability. Morgan Newton is not nearly as skilled or as quick as Tebow.

  197. Another Perspective
    11:33 am August 22, 2012 Permalink

    If I were the UL fan to whom you said, “Why would we ever lose a recruit?” I would have an answer.

    I would say that when UK sent the first indirect suggestion that something would be offered to me in return, the player/family decided that they didn’t want to be involved with anything like that. I would suggest that the moral standards of the kid involved were higher than UK so they lost interest. Not every kid/family wants to risk losing THEIR eligibility to play at your school.

    I don’t believe for a second that UK cheats… because they don’t need to cheat. But that would be my response.

My boy commented on how well Ryan did on the tour and mentioned meeting fellow BBN members at Norris lake. True story. We pulled our pontoons up beside each other while parking. They saw the UK gear and it was like we knew each other for years. (On that note, even though I have never met Matt, Ryan and the gang, I feel like I know them.) Anyway, We went around the bar (in the heart of Volunteer country) doing the whoa C-A-T-S = Cats! Cats! Cats! cheer at opportune times. A few UT fans spoke out but I told them look, we beat you all in football and womens basketball this year so don’t try to talk smack. Then I continued to tell them the “story” of why I hate UT fans. I may have even helped a few to “crossover” to the blue. GO CATS!!!!
