Kirk Herbstreit puts Florida on “Upset Alert”

KirkHerbstreit1

It looks like Kirk Herbstreit is hopping on the Big Blue bandwagon. The man with the perfectly mussed hair just put Florida on “upset alert” on SportsCenter. If you’re keeping track, he joins Dick Vitale and Mike Bianchi in the belief that Kentucky can pull off a win over the Gators this weekend.

    I just hate to see all of the warnings to UF, as if they did not know they could bet whipped in Commonwealth.

    @ LA: UK is the better team, WKU was just the better team THAT night.

    I love UK as much as the next person. We do not have the talent that UF has, I don’t see this one being very close.

    Weird, considering he seemingly called UK irrelevant to the SEC in a covnersation with Colin Cowherd this week on College Football Live.

    I hope he is right. I strongly suspect he is very wrong. The teams UK has played up to this point have not been very good, including ul. FL is a totally different beast. Even with the injuries they are still much better than UK.

    The more people but them on “upset alert,” the less likely an upset becomes.

    If we could win the turnover stat by a min of 3, maybe 2, I think we could beat them. Hopefully we can intercept them or cause fumbles, and NOT turn it back over to them. We need to play a perfect game, and they need to beat themselves a little for us to have a chance.

    This team didn’t just lose to Western, it got destroyed by Western. No way in hell we beat Florida. I just hope we’re competitive.

    @ Real UK fan: UF’s D is a beast, but their O sucks.

    UF is not the total package and they’re vulnerable.



  17. No offense

    Herbstreet must be watching the same as you defined it great offense you wrote about this morning. I imagine he defines dropped passes, failed third downs, fumbles in very crucial situations, poor blocking and terrible pass routes as a means for an upset..Getting hit in the head on a pass route when you are wide open and don’t realize it enough to turn around is not a great offense.

    I AGREE WITH #4, I DON’T CARE HOW YOU SPIN IT, WE LOST TO WESTERN.

    UL fans are in between a rock and a hard place on this game…they need UK to win for their SOS; however if UF loses to a team that may only win 4 games (regardless of injuries), it will smear the ONLY one thing they have clung to in defending their team’s artificially inflated ranking, not to mention puts their coach one step closer to a possible UF job offer.

    I love how you SO CALLED KENTUCKY fans come to a Forum that supports Kentucky Football and dogs the team with some of these statements . Some of you fans need to go join Gatorbait.com forums or Western KY fans forums . I THINK YOUR ON THE WRONG PAGE ! Don’t come back jumping on the bandwagon when this team turns it around either!

    Seriously though, I kind of hate casual UK football fans like #4 and #18.
    Never say your team ‘sucks’. It makes you look like a really shitty fan and bad for the whole fan base.

    They are shitty fans this is ridiculous and the college that must run this show are no better for NOT monitoring the board of some these idiotic people.

    Western was the first game of the year, first game as a HC for Stoops, and first game as a college athlete for half UK’s team. The lights seemed VERY bright for all of them that night. Since then they shook off the jitters and played much better. If the D rises to the occasion like they did against UofL, and everyone stays on the field without any injuries, and the receivers stop dropping passes, we have a chance to pull an upset. And I sure hope it happens – nothing would be more priceless to see UF run Muschamp out of town on a rail and then see the panic ensue in Louisville if UF comes sniffing around for Charlie Strong.

    Brandon, Ive been a Cats fan way before you wet your diaper. That’s what I believe and maybe your KIND isn’t welcome here as well. Be real man….GO CATS

    Don’t put much stock in what Bianchi says. Many of his columns are about hating Urban Meyer, loving Tebow and hating Dwight Howard. He seem to be stuck on those three.

    it could happen…remember stoops played Florida every year at Florida state,he knows them from last year.

    Throw out the Western game. I was there and the team that played against Miami and UL is totally different, for whatever reason. I’ll never understand how a UK football team could get overconfident, but that’s what it appeared to be. And yes, Miami is not a good team, but Cincinnati didn’t score on them until less than 5 min in their game, and Cincinnati beat Purdue like a rented mule 42-7.

    So, yeah, the Cats have a very good chance against the Gators.

    All this praise for a UK upset does not bode well for UK. especially, if it gets the attention of the florida team.
