Bobby Petrino would rather play UK at the beginning of the season


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.

      If UK was so irrelevant, you probably wouldn’t spend time trolling their fan sites like you’re doing here. For instance, I genuinely couldn’t care less about Louisville, so I don’t go on Card Chronicle. Your fan base and school are gutter trash. How’s the recruiting going, by the way? Stoops was even outdoing your savior Chawlie, and you think that’s going to improve with a guy that nobody trusts? Hilarious stuff, moron.

    HA! Gotta love it!
    Honest Bob can’t spend the entire off season scheming for the Cats now with all the cupcakes following. IMO, one of the biggest advantages for the Cards is now neutralized along with a few others accompanying their conference move.
    Mitch,or whoever pushed this through, made a hell of move. Go Cats!

      Mitch had nothing to do with it. The move to that date was requested by the SEC and the ACC, according to a press release last summer.

    Huge advantage! Because playing UT at the end of the season has always worked out so well for us. The team has always gelled by then. When we’re down to our 3rd and 4th string at every position after a brutal conference run.
    We need to quit playing these guys at all. Rupp had the right idea. There is absolutely nothing to gain by playing them, especially in football where we play in the toughest conference in the country.

    justme– Once again a UL troll rushing to dirty up a UK message board…yawn

    You Card fans love to compare apples to oranges when it benefits you, huh? Yeah, Ol’ Neckbrace did pretty good against a rebuilding (be it post Bassett or post Joker) UK squad when he has all off-season to prepare and cupcakes afterward. Since the game benefits UL more than UK, I don’t blame him or whoever for putting most of their prep time toward that end–especially since his main strong suit is Xs and Os anyway..

    No more though, and no wonder he’s crying about it. Big advantage gone..
    I think that has always been an underrated issue favoring UL. Props to UK and it has to stay that way– or if SEC adds another game–drop the damn dirty Birds all together…

    I actually think we will beat louisville this year, their not in as good of shape as people think, they lose both starting safeties, their star quarterback and NO CLUE who the starter will be this coming year, their running backs are average, online isn’t very good at all, i do agree with the end of the season meet as the time to adapt to college play, speed and physicality, we win this year, and with the talent I don’t see us losing to petrino again PERIOD

      I agree we beat them. But their backs are not average.

    Stoops will own Bobby. Stoops will be 4-0 against Bobby before he bolts for another job MARK IT DOWN! Ohh and Loserville will be lucky to be 5-7 with their new schedule. Louisville has no talent on D and honestly their receivers are vastly overrated.

    You guys are ridiculous. You have went 2-10 two years in a row. UofL has won 3 straight years now and you guys still talk trash? Do you guys not remember the beat downs bobby has thrown on you losers? And recruiting rankings mean absolutely nothing, remember jokers class a couple years back? How’d that turn out? While UofL was busy winning games this year, you guys was busy arguing about students not showing up when they are getting $5 tickets. You guys need a reality check. You guys get a good recruiting class, and you’re going 40-0 and stoops is going to win in the SEC. You guys talk about class and are constantly bashing 16-17 year old kids on twitter. Get ahold of yourselves.

    The only things you lames do is talk about how good it’s GOING to be in a couple years. When in reality you fools have no idea how anything will work out. After the whole “40-0” & “keep calm the twins are coming” bull$hit I figured you guys would quit predicting the future just a lil bit. Man, what the f*** was I thinking. NO MATTRR HOW WEAK OF A SCHEDULE UofL HAS, THEY BEAT UK. So, shhhhh..

    UK fans serious question? UofL once was an independent then a mid major in CUSA and almost dropped football at one point, so why has UofL been so competitive with mighty SEC UK? And to think UofL is joining the ACC now. You guys seriously need to give credit where credit is due. Better question is could UK have done the same thing as UofL with Mitch at the helm?

      If it wasn’t for the Governor’s Cup, UL probably would’ve already dropped football. It took playing UK for UL to make any progress at all. That’s where the credit is due.

    That playing UL first game of the year was always idiotic. If it was such a good thing to play a rival first game of the year then a lot more teams would be doing it. Most all sports teams play exhibitions before playing a real game except in college football, so here you have to try to schedule winnable games (like last year with Western, which should have been one). I feel like in a year or two we’ll be beating UL 3 out of 4 times the way a landmark University should. Look at the rivals recruiting rankings now:UK#14 UL#36

    The absolute dumbest fanbase in all sports. How in the world does a team that hasn’t beat a BCS school in 2 years, and over the last 3 years been outscored 100-14. . . by VANDERBILT!!!! talk smack? It defies logic. And how does this game benefit only UL? You might think it is a feather in UL’s cap to beat a big bad SEC team but newsflash as Clint Hurtt said: you only participate in the SEC. Keeping bragging about recruiting class victories though. It won’t translate on the field. Bob will coach circles around Stupes.

    UL will win games under Petrino, but it will come at a price – public embarrassment and humiliation for the university as a whole. I talked to a friend who is a WKU alum and fan even before the talk of Bobby P to UL, and he said that he has heard from multiple sources that Ol’ Bobby hasn’t changed a bit. Still chasing skirts and being a general ass to those who have to work for him. Of course, public embarrassment is becoming the norm for most UL fans – I guess they are becoming immune to it. Win at all costs.

    It is a bit strange to see the Cat fans knocking the trollers for visiting a site that constantly posts/trolls U of L. A good example would be this very post.

    ahhhh, question. You say the cupcake schedule is gone, but exactly who does UL play??

    Miami? overrated all year, UL blew them out in bowl game, and now gets them at home.
    Notre Dame was barely a top 25 team, and probably wouldnt have been if not for the name on the jersey.

    Syracuse, Va Tech? Virginia? NC State?

    Oh you mean Clemson and Florida st? Yes they are good, but I dont say two top 15 teams per year being an elite schedule
