Whenever there is basketball Bracketology half a year removed from the selection show, UK fans invest little to zero energy. That is not, and should not be the case when it comes to football bowl projections.
Today ESPN’s Brett McMurphy and Mark Schlabach issued their first bowl projections of the 2016 season. Mark Stoops’ Cats made the cut for both ESPN writers.
- McMurphy: Independence Bowl, Dec. 26 in Shreveport vs. Wake Forest
- Schlabach: Music City Bowl, Dec. 30 in Nashville vs. Miami
Some might call it wishful thinking, others might call it “Inception via ESPN,” but I can’t stop from getting excited at the thought of celebrating New Year’s in Nashville after a bowl victory over ‘The U.’ Just take a second to picture Lamar Thomas partying on Broadway. Beautiful, ain’t it?
We’re a long way from a bowl, but don’t let anyone take your Kentucky football joy, even if it is just for a few moments in August.
