Stewart Mandel explains his 7-5 prediction for UK

Fox Sports’ Stewart Mandel called in to Kentucky Sports Radio radio this morning to explain his 7-5 prediction for Kentucky football’s 2015 season.

“It’s a combination of: I like the progress they’re making under Mark Stoops; you’ve got a good quarterback coming back; they made a great move at OC; and thne also just taking advantage of a lot of the East division is in flux, quite frankly. I think Florida is in for a rough year in Jim McElwain’s first season because of, really, just an atrocious offensive line that got left behind there. I think Steve Spurrier’s days of winning 11 games at South Carolina are over. Obviously Vanderbilt is a mess. So it’s a good window, a good year for Kentucky to make that move up.”

Mandel predicts a 4-4 conference record for the Cats, meaning he expects Louisville to get the win in the season finale in Commonwealth Stadium. (Boooooooooooo!)

“I’m very high on Louisville,” he explained.

Listen to Mandel’s call in the second hour of today’s show:

    Can’t wait for the Louisville trolls to comment on here to why he’s wrong. LOL 😉

      He’s right to be high on the Cards, but he’s wrong about Kentucky going 7-5. Also, the Cards are high on the Cards. Whatever they can get high on, they do.

    Louisville…. a rivalry game on our home field with a team which does not respect its rival.

    Think he’s half right. Hell, we were a couple plays away from. 7-5 last year. Better schedule, year more depth and talent, I can see 7-5. A tipped reception or a missed delay of game against Florida, and a for sure, in the hands, game over dropped interception against UL, 7-5. Now ul lost seven on defense and we’re all pretty high draft picks. Strongs last year was a terrible class, and Pitrino first was nothing to write home about. They looked absolutely horrible without Parker, and still are searching for a line and qb their comfortable with. Not to mention Grantham defense got worse the longer he stayed at Georgia, ask them, they are happy he’s gone.

      Don’t forget that the game is in Lexington this year.

      You’re half right. Don’t forget you were also close to 3-8 last year!

      Louisville almost lost a few games last year, too, lest we forget. 😉

      I count about 3….

      Came close to 6-6….. in the ACC.

      Thats a basketball conference, by the way.

      I’m just pissed we are ranked lower than South Carolina was last year in this same poll.

    Did he forget that UL’s offensive line is a mess and shallow too? Their QB is going to be running all over the place this season.

      Huh Drake and our secondary self reported violation. Tyler good try on this but Laser Tag and young men is a very fun fun thing to do no diffrent than paint ball. The NCAA is ignorant when it comes to this type stuff, and the recruits where the 5th senior s not some future freshman that you inadvertly left out of the story.

      Does’nt surprise me one bit .Cal is nothing more than smoke and mirrors

      BigBluSoTru May 15, 2015 at 6:10 pm | Permalink
      let’s be honest as great of a salesman recruiter Cal is he doe’s not develop players. I’m sorry he does not get any credit whatsoever about Rose , Tyreke and the list goes on of already made players. The twins came to UK with can’t miss NBA hype and three years later . We see the results and no i’m not a troll sometimes you have to be honest with what you see rather than feel in the heart. And the eyes don’t lie

      Here we go with this over hyped Fb crap .. Stop the Flordia talk we are not and what in your ignorant minds think we have arrived to beat the Gators yet. Grease the goal post yell you are right . Those things do get a bit rusty without touchdowns from the home team going threw em.

      This is the year we win the East , and looking at the players and the way Alabama played last year and the coaching hires and talent . I don’t see us losing in the Sec championship game to Alabama Saban said he feared UK more than any other team from the east.

      Matt keeps up the fb recruiting drama, because we will constantly like today live on this propaganda made up hype site, putting money in his pockets. Have to give Matt credit for the business savy, of taking advantage of no life having 40-60 something uk idiots
