A Sad/Angry Sunday Morning Wake Up


Well, there’s not much more to say about last night.  It was disappointing.  Aside from UK’s first touchdown drive and Chris Westry’s interception, the entire game seemed like the old nightmare we used to have as kids.  It looked all too familiar for football fans around the BBN.  The only positive now is that it’s over, and the team will move forward and focus on next week.  I suggest we do the same.

Here are some events to look for as we start off our Sunday:

#21 Kentucky Volleyball

UK’s nationally ranked volleyball team is in action later today as they take on Ole Miss down in Oxford.  The match will begin at 2:30 ET and will be televised on SEC Network +(Watch ESPN app). UK hopes to improve their overall record to 15-6 and SEC record to 8-1.  Good luck!


Women’s Soccer


Following a close loss to 16th ranked Auburn, UK women’s soccer team travels to Knoxville to face the Volunteers at 5:00 PM ET.  The game will air live on the SEC Network this evening.  Go Cats!

NFL in England


In just a few minutes, the Buffalo Bills and the Jacksonville Jaguars will kickoff inside of Wembley Stadium.  It’s always cool to wake up to football on a Sunday morning.  While it’s definitely not the best match-up of the day, it’s still football at 9:30 AM.  American football has become very popular internationally, and it’s awesome to see all of the different team jerseys in the crowd.

As far as other games today, the Bengals are on a bye week, as well as Randall Cobb and the Packers.  Who to watch?  The Cowboys take on the Giants, so that rivalry always produces a good game. Sunday Night Football seems the most interesting with the Panthers and Eagles, and it should be a close game.  We are, however, entering that point of the NFL season where the bye weeks seem to lessen the really good match-ups



I know it’s not related to anything Kentucky, but one of the most exciting races of the NASCAR playoffs takes the green flag today.  The Chase race at Talladega.  Fan favorites such as Dale Jr., Matt Kenseth, and Kyle Busch get their last chance to make it into one of the eight remaining spots for the next round.  As with every restrictor plate race, any of the 43 drivers can win and there’s always “the big one”.  If you can’t find anything else on TV, definitely tune into the closing laps.  I promise you, it will make for some entertainment if you like chaos at 200 mph.


Hope everyone enjoys their Sunday!

    It was a disappointing game, but we have to stay the course.

      Looking forward to seeing Cody Quinn atop that defensive depth chart. SMH. He never plays in the second half but always finds a way to start the next game, and never fails to get torched play after play.

      Quinn couldn’t rob a bank with a bazooka. He couldn’t cover a pin hole with a parachute

    After sleeping, I`m no longer angry over the game. We still have 7 wins sitting out there, if the players dont give up on the season. We have to remember this, 16 freshmen and 19 sophomores are on the 2 deep depth chart, counting special teams. It takes 3 years, in a college weight room, to have a major college football body, so our future is bright. We have several true freshmen playing and they will be high and low during a game and they get frustrated very easily.
    The only questions, I have, are:
    1.) Why wasn`t our defense set prior to a lot of plays last night? Twice the entire defense was going to their positions, when the ball was snapped. This happens after timeouts as well.
    2.) Indecisions on play calls, call the play and live with it, but dont take away a made field goal, then ice our own kicker and he misses.
    3.) When we`re down, why haven`t we seen a trick play to possibly fire everyone back up?
    4.) Player development, our back-up nose tackle (playing now) has very poor technique and this is his second year playing. He stands straight up, with no bend at all and was being pushed backward and from side to side last night, opening up the middle.
    5.) Lastly, I like our chances against Georgia more than Tennessee. Georgia has a drop back passer where as Tennessee has a quarterback who loves to run and we have a major problem stopping them.
    7 wins this season?? Sure
    Tennessee – probably not
    Georgia – Maybe
    Vandy – I would hope we get a win here
    Charlotte – A win by a large margin
    Louisville – A win at home. They aren`t as good as they think. Probably the worse offensive line we face all season. Stopping Jackson maybe an issue, but they have no running backs to worry about and forcing Jackson to pass would be a possitive for UK.

    Kentucky has now set the table for an old fashion Tennessee dog whooping. I’m not sure if UK could beat East Tennessee State University right now. My main concern is another en masse exodus of our commits.
