Kentucky is tied for 2nd in the SEC East

stoops-smile

Following this lengthy bye week, your Kentucky Wildcats are now tied for 2nd in the SEC East.  

Even during the week off, UK has managed to jump up another spot in the race for the SEC Championship. Yes, I know, I must be crazy to think Kentucky has a shot at winning the East, but hear me out.

Even after the rocky start to the season, this team has managed to turn it around, and now controls its own destiny. We can assume LSU is going to hand Florida another conference loss, and they may drop another one along the way too. That opens up the door for the Cats to pull a season miracle and win out in the SEC.

Mississippi State just looks awful, as they can’t seem to get back on their feet. Losing to BYU on Friday didn’t do any favors for their confidence heading into Commonwealth Stadium.

Missouri now sits at the bottom, falling to 0-3 in conference play following yesterday’s loss at Florida. It’s definitely in the “winable game” category for the Cats. It’s a tricky one to predict, though.

After Vandy’s upset over Georgia yesterday, playing the Bulldogs at home now seems like a better possibility. If the Cat’s defense can stop Georgia’s run game, it’ll be a fun day in November.

That just leaves Tennessee, who arguably looked worst in Knoxville against the Crimson Tide than the Cats did in Tuscaloosa. It would take a miracle to rocky top the Vols in Knoxville this year, but with the way this season has gone, anything is possible.

Hey, never say never. Go Big Blue!

    UT has best chance to win the East, easiest schedule left by far. UF has to go to Ark and to LSU and has the rival game vs UGA. Bama was bored against us, they treated it like a bye week. Look no further than us losing to USM, same USM that lost to UTSA and was blown out by LSU. I believe LSU held them to less throwing yards for the game than we did in 1 quarter. If UGA runs the ball 60 times they beat us easily and we have no shot at UT. Yes we could win vs MSU and Mizzou and that should get us 3rd in the East and a bowl.

    One of the craziest years in college football in a long time. Kentucky football has been so snake bit, it almost makes one wonder if they could blunder their way to a bowl game yet. Which team shows up and how well does Johnson play with a bye week behind him will determine a lot. Seems this team is relying lots on the defense and it is well past time for the offense to crank up with a balanced attack.

    We are a different team defensively than the first few games of the year. I like our chances in most of our remaining games.
