Our friends down I-64 unveiled their schedule for the 2014 season today, and afterwards, Bobby Petrino shared his thoughts. Not surprisingly, Bobby said that he would rather play the UK game at the beginning of the season than the end, as it’s scheduled for next season. After looking at Louisville’s schedule, it’s not hard to see why…that giant platter of cupcakes is long gone.
However, for Mark Stoops and the Cats, moving the game to the end of the season makes a world of sense. It gives the freshmen class time to mature, team to gel, and makes the rivalry the climax of the season instead of an afterthought of the non-conference run. Plus, UK will have a bye week before the game, whereas Louisville will travel to Notre Dame.
It may not happen next season, but I can’t think of a better way to end the season than beating the Cards.
