University of Louisville football coach Charlie Strong at the annual Governor’s Cup Luncheon.
Here are my five quick thoughts on this morning’s announcement that the annual Governor’s Cup football game, between the universities of Louisville and Kentucky, will be moved to the final regular-season game for both beginning in 2014.
1. I hate the move. The game should be played in Week 1, and that’s it.
2. I guess this is the end of the Governor’s Cup Luncheon. If not, I can’t wait until next August when Charlie Strong and Mark Stoops get together to talk about a game that will be almost four months away.
3. I can’t wait to watch the game on ESPN8 “the ocho,” right after the dodgeball championships, because that’s exactly where it’s going to be while the rest of the country is watching Auburn-Alabama, Ohio State-Michigan, Notre Dame-Stanford, Georgia-Georgia Tech, Clemson-South Carolina, Florida State-Florida, etc.
4. UK and UofL fans better learn how to make a Hot Toddy, because it gets cold in this area in late November.
5. The only way I like this move is if they make it a football-basketball doubleheader and play the football game at noon and then the basketball game at 8 p.m.
