While yesterday’s third straight blowout loss may have the fanbase slamming their fist down on the panic button it’s important to remember that the season is far from over. The Cats have three more winnable games on the schedule and only need to win two of them to reach the promised land. Where do the experts project the Cats to land if they are able to do that? How about Shreveport, Louisiana for the Independence Bowl. The Independence Bowl matches up the lowest bowl-eligible team from the SEC against a team from the ACC and the projections have us sending Frank Beamer of Virginia Tech into retirement.
The only bummer about going to the Independence Bowl would be that it takes place on December 26th, or the same date as the Kentucky-Louisville basketball game. As they say, beggars can’t be choosers. Would you make the trip to Louisiana for Kentucky’s first bowl in nearly half decade?
