    I still don’t think that guy that called late Saturday night was Russian. Maybe he’ll call today.

    I’ll take the win… Louisville lost. Good for me.

      Even a disappointing win is a good win. We were positioning ourselves for a GREAT win though, therein lies most of the grumbling from the natives.

      …and agreed the schadenfreude associated with the UofL loss was very sweet.

      Is there an online link for the post-game show from Saturday night? I missed it.

      @laker cat,
      they rarely publish the postgame shows unless it was a RELLY good show . most of the time because there are a lot of drunks that call in and it doesn’t always make for great radio. but also because those shows sometimes don’t end until after 1:00 and by the time matt and co. get home, the last thing they are thinking about is publishing a postgame show.

    It wouldn’t break my heart if SC came into the game feeling pretty confident about their chances based on how the Cats played this weekend.

    I think we all know the problem in the 2nd half this weekend. That ugly “K” at mid-field was really screwing with people.

      I actually thought it looked pretty nice….

      It’s like the mole on Cindy Crawford’s face. It looks great because of everything around it, but would be a lot nicer if it were altered. (No offense to Cindy, she was my celebrity crush growing up. I called it a beauty mark.)

    I agree a long day especially for students who started partying early before the game, but with the Fl game, those seats CAN”T be empty ANYTIME during that game…..Maybe fill-ins like with Academy Awards etc? WORRIED

    I hate to admit it but cats paw knows what he’s talking about. Stoops is a mediocre coach at best and we really messed up by not hiring Petrino.

    • CATandMONKEY
      10:47 am September 8, 2015 Permalink

      Stoops may prove to be only a mediocre coach but I would take Cats Paw’s mother as coach before I would see Petrino donning the blue and white.

      bigblueboom = a user that never logs in anymore and catspaw has stolen his name and trolling with garbage no one actually believes as true.

      you take the coach who’s 0-1 and i’ll take the coach who’s 1-0

      now go troll somewhere else.

      Well let’s see UL was able to get close to AU because and only because the young QB for AU was petrified and kept throwing interceptions into triple coverage and Petrino is still a great coach with a loss. ULL was able to come back because Towles kept missing his receivers and locking onto a primary receiver, but UK wins against a good team with a huge line and Stoops is medicore? Petrino is a jerk and a clod who inherited a decent team. Stoops inherited an awful team with the best talent red-shirt freshmen and true freshmen and Stoops is a decent.

      How can one say we should have hired Petrino. Never in our lifetime should we hire him, never!

    • How many times do we have to say this?

      Joker, as nice a guy as he apparently is, left this program in absolute SHAMBLES and Stoops has NOT had enough time yet. Come back Nov. 26, 2016 and we’ll talk. If we haven’t improved significantly by then, I might be joining the chorus.

      Until then, as Archie Bunker would say, “Stifle!”.

      Jay is correct. I stopped using the name BigBlueBoom bc the trolls started using it and making me sound like one of them. Losers.

      Hopefully they don’t snag Booby Petrino from me. Lol

    What about the Texas high school players hitting the referee from behind. Pretty awful!

    Matt, ULL put up 33 on us. Does it seem out of the question that USC could put up 35?
    I hope you are correct.

    Patrick is complete garbage when it comes to playing a qb. I hope he takes his sry butt somewhere else. Jared needs to quit be all over towels balls as well.

      I trust the head coach’s opinion way more than yours armchair quarterback.

    so who makes Stoops start freshmen? Does UK not have soph and jr’s on this team? whats happened to those 3 great recruiting classes?

    • Duuuuuude
      11:24 am September 8, 2015 Permalink

      They are mostly redshirt freshmen and freshmen.

    • J-Dub421

      This is Stoops third season. Any one he recruited is a junior at best.

    Stumbled upon this fun fact this morning: Billy Gillsipie is not only the head basketball coach at Ranger College, but also the Athletic Director.

    Kash Daniel is a clear example of leadership. He takes no credit for the success of his team even though he carries them on his back. Humility at it’s best.
