Today on KSR: Can We Start This Week Over?

What a bad week for Kentucky fans. Thank God we won against SIU on Friday or I think the whole state would’ve exploded last night. We’ve had three pretty embarrassing losses this week and honestly, I think last night’s 24-7 loss on Knoxville is the worst on the list. Losing to Georgia was rough but they’re a good team. Losing to Duke was baaaad because we got blown out, but again they’re a good team. Tennesee though? Tennesee sucks. And we barely scored on them. That’s a brutal brutal loss.

But, it’s a new week, friends. Let’s try our hardest to put this past one behind us and maybe try and be a little positive. Please? As I run through the happenings of yesterday and today, let’s all take some deep breaths and try to lower our doom and gloom moods from like a 10, to an 8. Deal?

I didn’t watch the game

In fact, I didn’t watch any college football this weekend. Except for a couple of drives of the UGA-Auburn game. I know, I know, it’s kind of my “job” to watch the game the day before I have morning post and don’t get me wrong, I (usually) love watching UK sports. But, after I got my heart absolutely crushed last week during the UGA game I just wasn’t super into it this week. I hadn’t and still have not given up on this team, but I just wasn’t looking forward to the game like I had been all season. I wasn’t making plans with friends to go watch the game or predicting scores at the office, my excitement was gone. Then Friday morning I woke up with a severe cold so my Saturday consisted of about 20 cups of tea, soup and napping on and off. I had the game on and would wake up every so often, see the score, check Twitter and then go back to sleep. Judging by how much better I feel today and how much less angry I am than other UK fans, I think I made a good choice. That being said, please take my takes with a grain of salt and keep in mind that the only plays of this game I saw were very much in a Nyquil induced state.

Our offense sucked but our defense wasn’t much better.

The second quarter is really where Kentucky blew up. Thank God for our defense, but I’m not thanking him too much. Our offense ran 15, FIF-FREAKIN-TEEN plays in the second quarter and only gained one yard. One? Really? That’s not just on Terry, or a dropped pass, or just Gran. It’s on every player and every coach. After two or three how do you not realize this system is shutting down and something needs to be changed? Not even after the first or second play, actually, how did you (speaking to all players and coaches here) not realize that again Mizzou? or Georgia? It’s frustrating to watch sure but to see a stat like that written out on paper is even more irritating.

Like I said, our defense wasn’t much better.

Remember when I said I wasn’t as angry as other UK fans a few paragraphs above? Yeah, scratch that, writing this is making me just as angry.

9-3 Isn’t That Bad

OK, time for some positivity. 9-3 is not bad 9-3 is not bad 9-3 is not bad 9-3 is not bad 9-3 is not bad 9-3 is not bad. Everyone say it with me! Of course, part of me can’t help but think of last Sunday when we were saying “10-2 is not bad” and part of wonders if next week we’ll be trying to tell ourselves “8-4 is not bad” I really really hope not. The Cats need to turn it around and turn it around fast for us to be able to be happy with the season and still make a New Years Bowl. Let’s hope they do before Saturday.

Something to Cheer You Up

Moving along on the positivity train here are a few funny moments from College Football yesterday:

What hurts worse? That fall or our loss?

At least some teams were having fun?

UK Hoops Takes on Southern Tonight!

Need Sunday night plans? Come down to Memorial for a UK Hoops Game! The Cats kicked off the season Thursday with a huge win against Alabama State and hope to continue the momentum tonight! UK Hoops games are always a lot of fun and the new jumbo screen in Memorial is insane! You gotta see it! I’ll have your game recap on this site later!


That’s all for me this morning, I’m going to go drink more tea and try to forget about this week. Go Cats!

    The whole football program is on the verge of imploding, pure and simple. So sad to watch this happening since we were so high on this team 2 weeks ago. Benny’s comments yesterday tells the whole story.

    9-3 would be incredible, but going to be difficult if a change is not made at QB.
    As I stated before, my four seats will be empty this Sat as a protest against Gran.

      Can I have your tickets. I know plenty of people that would love to be there to support these boys wearing KY across their chest.

    By not watching game, you can’t complain about players not showing up. We will be down to #18 at least. New years day bowl went out the window with that loss. 9-3 is still a positive season. BUT OH what a letdown !!!
