ESPN projects Kentucky going bowling in Shreveport

ESPN released its final preseason bowl projections and UK football fans better get ready to spend Christmas in Louisiana if the predictions come true.

The masterminds behind the picks–Mark Schlabach and Brett McMurphy–predict Kentucky to the Independence Bowl in Shreveport, Louisiana. That’s a December 26th, day-after-Christmas contest with North Carolina at 5:45 pm on ESPN.

Kentucky is one of 13 SEC teams projected to go bowling from the SEC, leaving only Vanderbilt behind from postseason play.

I can get down with Shreveport.

One problem: UK hosts Louisville in basketball that day.

      Do Cats fans go troll Alabama basketball sites?

      It’s a Louisville fan posting as a Bama fan. I’m pretty sure Bama fans aren’t that pathetic.

    If the basketball game and the football game are at the same time then, obviously, we watch the basketball game and get the highlights on the news if there are any.

      If we make that bowl, I’m going (or watching first at least) and DVRing the UK/Louisville game. Postseason of one sport always takes precedence over regular season in another. And I like football as a sport better.

    Several thing have got to happen. The first is qualifying for a bowl game. This would be a nice problem to have.
