Bleacher Report Lists Kentucky As A Major Trap Team

Barrett Sallee, Bleacher Report’s SEC Football writer, has gone through the schedules of every team in the conference to isolate the biggest potential game they could overlook and lose. Here are the three teams Sallee thinks Kentucky could sneak up on and whether or not I agree:

Auburn: @Kentucky, Oct 15.

Auburn’s October seems like a pretty simple road. Open with San Jose State, Bye Week, Thursday Night Game @Kentucky, @Arkansas, Ole Miss. It’s easy to see how the Cats could be overlooked in lieu of games in the race for the SEC West. Then there is no way the Auburn coaching staff can prepare their 5 star recruits for the insane environment Kentucky will bring to their first ever game on Thursday night. They’re going to be thinking about the Kentucky of old. It’s a recipe for Kentucky to shock the world.

Georgia: Vs Kentucky, Nov 7.

After last year’s absolute dismantling on our home turf the Bulldogs could very well be overlooking the Cats in the first game of November. Plus, the game is wedged between two rivalry games for UGA in Florida and Auburn with no rest in-between. The situation is ripe for an upset but the talent gap still seems to wide for this to be realistic. Let’s not forget Nick Chubb averaged 13 yards per carry in last year’s game. The Cats could make them sweat but a win would be a legendary upset.

South Carolina: Vs Kentucky, Sept 12.

South Carolina has a bunch of questions and not a lot of answers for the second game of the season. Kentucky could very well go in to Columbia and leave with a win this season but I don’t think this qualifies as a trap game. After last season’s Gamecock shocker the ol’ Ball Coach is going to be looking to avenge his second-ever loss to the boys in Blue. The game is a proving ground for what Kentucky wants to do this year and beyond. Don’t call it an upset.


Who does B/R list as Kentucky’s biggest trap game? Louisana-Lafayette during the home opener. KSR’s own Freddie Maggard has pinpointed that since the schedule was released.

    Kentucky has always been the rectum of SEC football, but this year, thanks to Coach Stoops and the staff, something will emerge from that rectum that the rest of the SEC will not find to their liking

    The “Old Ball Coach” won’t let his gamecokes lose to tiny ol’ kentucky; last year was motivation. Spurmier is a motivator. He will prepare for this game as if it were a major bowl. And, he will do his best to run up the score and wallop the CATS.

    Our defense allowed Chubb to get 13 yards per carry last year… And we lost Z and Bud. I wish you had let us forget that. But you are right, a win would be legendary.

    Stoops’ teams have fared well so far against South Carolina. Last year Kentucky got the upset W in a crazy environment at home. But let’s not forget 2 years ago. Kentucky lost by a touchdown at #13 South Carolina, 28-35. Jalen Whitlow was 17-24 178 yds and 2 touchdowns. He added 69 yards on the ground and another TD. A 2 win Kentucky team competed very well against a much more talented gamecock team. I’m not calling it a W by any means, but I think we have a good shot at a road upset.

    The time is right for Kentucky Football to surpass the big name teams from the past in the SEC east. South Carolina has hit the end of the spurrier era and should look to rebuild in a few years. Florida took a chance with Maclewayne that I don’t see panning out in the end. Vandy will always be at the bottom. Georiga will always be good with their talent pool but their coach isn’t doing very well now, and I don’t think Mizzou can keep up their success. Tennessee and Kentucky are the big risers in the east, and look for them to be the big names competing for the division in as soon as 2-3 years from now.
