CFB week one odds are in… Wildcats open as two-score favorites against Southern Miss

We are still 14 weeks away from the opening of the 2017 college football season, but the oddsmakers in Las Vegas have already released the odds for the first weekend of games.

The Wildcats will head down to Hattiesburg, MS on September 2nd to take on the Southern Miss Golden Eagles as 13 1/2 point favorites.

As you all are well aware, Kentucky was handed a gut wrenching loss to the Golden Eagles on opening night last year, sparking angst throughout the commonwealth. The two weeks following that game were…. rough.

They’ll surely head down to Hattiesburg with a chip on their shoulder with a blowout in mind to make up for last year, right?

What do you guys think of the opening line?

    I think we win, but I think Vegas bets the line down.

    I think we might cover this but I will wait until it’s bet down.

    I think I’m about to make a small fortune off the Cats.

    So when Southern Miss runs for 300 yards… who can we blame it on this time?

    Yes, I will keep pushing the button until a Kentucky defense shows it can consistently stop the run. I’ve watched 35 years in a row where they can’t (including last year).

    Turn the corner KY. Turn the damn corner for once!

      The difference this time is we will util5the the undiscovered battering ram known as Benjamin Snell JR. We can control the tempo allowing the defense the rest to perform for 4 quarters. Remember, Benny didn’t even sniff the field in game 1 last year, and we had a different game plan which reflected the personnel packages. Stoops knows Gran now, where he didn’t have full trust last year. This is not nearly the same comparison as last year. Sept 9 the boys come home 1-0!

    It all depends if Shannon Dawson has a good quarterback. When he does he’s typically a good coordinator.

    “LOVE IS BLIND”. I, too believe this year will be different. I’ve said that since 1952 when I attended my first game. However, more likely , than not, we will field a team not quite ready for Prime Time which will start slow and pull out a narrow victory. Now……you might think this would be a poor performance to start the season…….no…..our really bad starting performances those like last year and our performance versus Eastern…….not superior and lucky to win. I’ll take any sort of victory opening this year………..one point or 13 1/2 points. Get the cobwebs out and the bad memories disappear. GBB!
