Is anyone else ready to hear some sirens at Commonwealth today? With Max Smith at the helm, Kentucky is looking to throw the ball around more than against Western. Hopefully Neal Brown has devised a strategy to let Max Smith toss the pigskin all the way to a victory against the Redhawks. If D.J. Eliot and Stoops have fine tuned the defense, we are in for a beautiful day in the Bluegrass.
– The Cats are ready to notch their first win in the 2013-2014 season. Kyle Tucker of the Courier Journal writes here about the importance of using a win today as a confidence builder for the rest of the year.

Jennifer Smith of the Herald Leader writes on Max Smith’s desire to bring the long awaited “Air Raid” to life.
-Regardless of today, the future still looks bright. Drew Barker threw for 378 yards and 4 TDs in a loss last night to Simon Kenton HS. Richard Skinner has the full details on the shootout between Conner and Simon Kenton.
