It was a nightmare 24-game slate for the program, one the players and coaches would…

The first two years of Brad White’s tenure have been incredibly successful. Despite what was seen a massive rebuild ahead of the 2019 season, it was the first of two seasons where the Wildcats finished ranked in the top five nationally in pass defense, and those weren’t the only impressive statistical accomplishments.

John Calipari is still trying to figure out his rotations and best five with only one game to go in the regular season. He is still tweaking, he might say.

After the first quarter in Columbia, I’m pretty sure most Kentucky fans had that old familiar feeling. Down 14-0 with Sandstorm ringing in our ears and the South Carolina offense moving the ball at will, this game had the feeling of a Steve Spurrier shutout. But this is not your old familiar Kentucky team. The…

A game that was destined for disaster transformed into what will be looked at as a turning point in the Kentucky football program. The game started sour, with the Cocks reeling off two quick scores while the UK offense was doing the exact opposite, running only 9 plays in the first quarter. With Jalen Whitlow…

  There was a time when many of the so-called recruiting experts believed John Calipari would lose the Julius Randle Sweepstakes. In fact, ESPN’s Dave Telep and Scout.com’s Brian Snow predicted Randle to Kansas in the final moments of his recruitment. Randle, however, knew he would end up in Lexington all along. “This is the…
