This marks my 550th Kentucky Sports Radio post. Initially, I struggled to find interesting or impactful content for such a milestone. Then, literally in the middle of the night, it hit me like a load of bricks: why don’t we chronicle the last 5 minutes and 50 seconds of Lynn Bowden’s career as a Kentucky…

I’d like to take an initial dive into the 2020 schedule as we officially enter the offseason. Over the next couple of months, we will break down the Cats’ fall slate of games by quarters, or groups of four. The first opponent of the first quarter of the schedule are the Eastern Michigan Eagles. UK…

Mark Stoops has built a sustainable and successful football program at the University of Kentucky. I wrote about the “New Old Kentucky Football” era following the Cat’s 37-30 Belk Bowl victory over the Virginia Tech Hokies. I thought I’d take that post a little further and provide context by comparing the records of other programs…

I understand the saying, but I’m not exactly thrilled when the term “Same old Kentucky Football” is used in a derogatory manner. Matter of fact, I take it quite personally. Today, and over the past couple of seasons, that phrase has evolved into a whole new meaning. The “Same New Kentucky Football” has a two-year…

There are similarities between the Virginia Tech Hokies and the Kentucky Wildcats. This especially applies to the quarterback position. Tech’s season can best be described as “Before and After” the Duke game. The Hokies entered the Duke contest with two lackluster wins over Old Dominion (31-17) and Furman (24-17). The Blue Devils then trounced the…

We miss our friend Jared. He loved the game of football. He loved the Kentucky Wildcats even more. The Kentucky Sports Radio Football Department thought that we’d honor Jared Lorenzen by naming the end-of-year awards after the most beloved left hander to ever wear the blue and white.  * Please note: In order to prevent…

Linebacker Rayshard Ashby is Virginia Tech’s leading tackler, but the junior is much more than a statistical column. Legendary Hokie defensive coordinator Bud Foster had this to say about Ashby in a Daily Press interview, “He’s a professional,” Foster said regarding Ashby after Virginia Tech’s 45-0 win Nov. 16 at Georgia Tech. “He really is.…

Kentucky went into South Florida and will sign one of the nation’s top players. Samuel Anaele brings an elite mixture of size, athletic ability, motor, and attitude. Both Rivals and 247Sports rated him as a top 10 defensive end in the nation. He doesn’t appear to love the glitz and glam of the recruiting cycle…
