      Astute observation. Check back with us after Duke’s first game at Notre Dame.

      I hope duke is the name of your dog. Otherwise, you’ve made some poor life choices. Also, dukeisking is an oxymoron. You, personally, can drop the oxy.

      Depends on when the Plandemic Lockdown II starts. Maybe on 9-11?

    Wow I was hearing it was going to be @ Florida at Auburn isn’t Terrible it’s actually kind of funny because it’s exactly where Joey Gatewood came from. If he gets eligibile he could come in the game and be the tigers downfall.

    Week 1 leans in favor of the SEC big boys limiting upset potential.

      Auburn’s qb is still wet behind the ears. I like it.

    !.Matt on teiter says we are beating Auburn
    2. Says nothing to lose shock the world
    3. Coblic says we ar #5 in SEC above Auburn

    So Matts nothing to lose and shock the world can’t be used we have no excuse to lose if we are picked above them and Matt says we are better

    This is the best matchup in week 1.

    UK QB coming off a MAJOR injury and the first time being tackled will be in an actual game. Not in practice where he will the defense will not be allowed to tackle him. 0-1 like I said!! Auburn ain’t the Belk Bowl opponent?

      Ha ha ha; Blew Devils lead the nation in Div I football WINLESS seasons. What exactly is duke king of…nerds?

    I challenge any of you to create a less-inspiring Week One schedule. The SEC had a chance to really make a statement the first week with several BIG match-ups. With most publications having six SEC teams in the preseason Top 25 we get ZERO matchups between ranked teams (Yes, Sporting News has us ranked #23, but no one trumpets the SN rankings on their commercials). Maybe they assume we’ll all just be grateful to have some/any football that we’ll accept whatever match-ups they want to dump on us.

      I agree. They could have started with a bang to get the nation’s attention, but instead gave the top 4 or 5 cupcakes.

    If we get to play this schedule, the record will say who UK is. Debate is useless. Play the games, see who they beat and who they don’t. We will fimd out exactly how far Coach Stoops has brought the program.

    I see people overselling Auburn , under selling Kentucky … love it … we kick the most ass like this

    A lot will depend on Terry’s rust. Been a long time since he’s been under center. If he plays well, we have a real shot at this one. This would give us that 1 win no one was expecting.

    This is is a lot different that Stoops usual opening game of EKU or Toledo.

    Schedule doesn’t do UK any favors. Assuming they play we’ll find out quickly if they are contenders or pretenders.

    @Eddie-all teams usually start the season vs a nobody, the fact we normally play a MAC team is better than what most play.
    @oldfan-if you can’t already see how far Stoops and Staff have brought the program you are blind or just stupid.
    @dukeking you are right, Auburn aint the Belk Bowl opponent…that opponent currently has the longest Bowl appearance streak in the Nation at 27 or so, Auburn does not. That opponent got to play us with a wr at qb and knowing we would run the ball 98% of the time, Auburn does not have that luxury. Is a tough game, heck it is on the road in the SEC which is the best conf in football by far. I like the team we have to have to battle just an sec schedule. We have lots of experience, very good depth, great lines on both sides, a coaching that staff that has learned alot over the last 7 years and a QB that has some experience and if he plays to his ability we will be very good. If we were in Big 10 {or how many teams they actually have} we would be contenders for sure, may still be in SEC who knows. I do know with the previous staff we would be staring right at an 1-9 or 0-10 season with maybe 3 close games and all others blowouts.

    I love the matchup, but I’m a little worried. It seems like Stoop’s teams really hit their stride about game 3. This may be too early to challenge a quality opponent. Agree or disagree?

      Disagree. I think we win this. Experience trumps all things equal talent wise and we are there talent wise.
