    I love the cats, but I can’t drop $300 plus parking and food to take my family to the game, regardless of upper level or not.

    We’ll build it all up and then we’ll lose to Georgia and Tennessee. Let’s chill out a bit guys.

    • Way to go Debbie Downer. 😉

      Hey, I don’t want to count my chickens too quickly either. However, I like the feeling I have for UK football right now, and those 2 are beatable, especially the way UT has imploded. Whether we do it or not, we shall see.

      the good thing though, is no matter how much we build it up, if we get knocked back down to reality, the worst case scenario is we are still going bowling (i refuse to accept losing to austin peay as a valid scenario). and that’s all i could have asked for out of this season (especially after the events in week 1)

    Jalen Hurd, come on down!

    • I look for him to go to a 1-AA school (one of the powers like Randy Moss did) so he can play right away.



    • ukjaybrat

      he can go to 1-aa and play right away then come back to div1 and continue to play at this level. or he can go straight to a div1 school and practice with the new team. sometimes development is worth more than stats. just depends on where his mindset is.

      Sound to me like he just wants to get out of the brutal SEC and the much beaten up position of running back, and will make for the NFL as soon as he’s done his 3 years.



    • J-Dub421

      He wants to switch positions from running back to either receiver or tight end, so taking a red shirt year to learn a new position may be appealing.

  9. They should see how ticket sales go until maybe Thursday, then Thursday evening or Friday morning start having a fire sale. If you want a packed stadium, you gotta give a little. Number 3 above is right: there are just too many people (like me) who can’t afford the kind of prices they charge these days, especially when you add parking and concessions.



    • CatFanDu
      11:09 am November 1, 2016 Permalink

      Haven’t checked today, but as of yesterday there were $25 upper level seats, and a lot of them (with offer code). Maybe it was just for season ticket holders, but I don’t think I was logged in as such at the time I checked. But, overall, yes a fire sale Thursday/Friday would be the promotion to succeed.

      The athletic department offered tix to the opening game through text at $20 each for uppers, I jumped on the deal. Every since, the cheapest I’ve been offered was $40 each for uppers. In line with your point, it’s a much better deal when they really want the place packed.

      I don’t really remember when I signed up, but it comes from Kentucky Athletics 201-23 is the number. They offer all sports when tix are available. They offered Lower Level for Georgia at $50 each. It’s called Reply Buy. Here is the link about them. http://www.ukathletics.com/page/tickets-replybuy

    If we beat Georgia and take out Austin Peay as expected, we have officially turned the corner with a 7-win season. That’s all I asked for. Would be an A+ for me on the year.



    • Realme
      11:02 am November 1, 2016 Permalink

      I’ll settle for just AP and a bowl game, but that would feel like a bit of a drop off if that’s all we do with our last 4 games.



    • Laker Cat 18
      11:09 am November 1, 2016 Permalink

      I think 6-6 is par the course. With 5-7 seasons the past two years, 6-6 is where we “should” be. 7-wins is the game changer. That will define us hitting the next level.

    Anyone who thinks this team will win 3 more games needs their head examined. Austin Peay ok but wins over Miss. St and Missouri are out of the question. Maybe just maybe one of those but both will not happen.

    So glad I saved myself $10,000 …….TOLD YOU SO.
    FIRE that idiot NOW and I will renew my 10 seats today.
    Otherwise I’ll be joined by a lot of the fans and will be staying home to watch horrible football.
    3 game max wins.
    Enjoy.

    • Big Board, to be fair, I don’t think any UK fan felt too good after the 2nd half implosion against Southern Miss and the disaster against Florida. And even though we beat New Mexico State, we still gave up 42 to a horrible team.

      We’re all just glad that Stoops took over the D and that Johnson has turned out to be a good player. Hopefully he can keep the fumbles at bay to give us the best shot against UGA, UT, and UL.

  14. 7 wins sure feels and sounds a whole lot better than being .500, plus it’s a guaranteed winning season even if we don’t win the bowl game.

      i have heard that Robic only signs one year contracts instead of the standard two years.
      Each year he says is his last. I was told that he and Cal don’t really get along, they
      only have a professional relationship, but they both know what they have is a good thing.

      He then signed a two year contract the next day. LOL

    How’s this for a broken record, typically from morons who drink too much Kool Aid, after every humiliating game since Stoops has been here:
    “Stoops needs more time.” “We are still young.” “Joker destroyed the program.” “Joker left the cupboards bare.” “Petrino is a bad man, I am glad he does not coach here.”
    Does that suit you better Poindexter.454?
    That is the real broken record, dipshid.

    If you really think it takes another 10 years to build a program that had been decimated by a former coach, please take a look at the University of Houston.

    Anyone that thinks 6 wins was going to happen is absolutely out of their freakin mind, over the top, blinders on.

    This team is a 3-4 win team against this schedule.

    The only wins are:
    NM St
    Austin Peay
    Possible wins:
    Southern Miss
    South Carolina

    The rest are absolute losses with no questions about it whatsoever.

    And if there are a couple of injuries at certain spots it’s gonna be a 2 win season.

    Kentucky football is in the dumpster.

    When are the football minds gonna see the truth. Ohio State rejects have contributed nothing to the UK program. Can anyone name a single recruit from Ohio that has done anything for this team? Forget how Stoops has done such a great job of recruiting when s team full of unranked players can come to our field and bitch slap us the whole second half. Stoops is the problem and till anyone sees that this will continue to happen. No player development, poor coaching and pathetic play calling, no wonder so many players have deserted this team to go elsewhere. Wow did not think we could do worse than Joker but we certainly have reached that level.

    To those who say it is just one game, you are wrong. It is another game. Another game where we collapse in the second half, another game of very poor defense, another game of being dominated on both sides of the ball, another game which exhibited very poor game coaching, another game which shows poor player development.
    Stoops is not getting it done folks. Eliot is not getting it done. How long is the runway for these guys?
    Barnhart has to be thinking of his options. 4 years of coaches beating their chests about how good they are and the same failures every year. UK must choose a different direction. This path is going nowhere.

    Most of my comments have been stalled by the moderator. That is my silence.
    I knew we had the players. What I saw was a poorly coached team, that was going the wrong direction. I saw hideous defensive stats, a very poor RPI rating, great facilities, a coach compensated with millions, and this team getting a Beatdown from lower level competition.
    I voiced my opinion, that things needed to change. They did. Stoops pushed Eliot up to the booth and took over the defense, (which was 3 1/4 years late) and the impact has been excellent. They went primarily to the ground game, and those TWO changes, have made this a different team.
    Every media outlet covering college football has noted the changes, and have all said this is not the same team that was displayed and humiliated at the start of the season.
    Changes happened. I got what I was begging for. I am happy.
    It was a great drive home from Missouri, too.
    I do not think anyone was happy with the way last year went, and the first three games this year.
    Let’s see where this takes us.
