What a game, Cat fans. Kentucky fell to the Gators for the 28th straight season, and while the end result may seem like the same old song and dance, the Cats showed more than just a glimpse of where the program is headed.
Kentucky lost the game 36-30 after three overtimes to a team they haven’t beaten since 1986. Mark Stoops and his troops aren’t...
I tweeted a lot of my thoughts on the U of L game, so I decided to put them to ink. Bottom line is that they did not play well. They didn’t deserve to win. And they didn’t.
The first drive of the game was surgical. 9 plays, 75 yards in just over five minutes. On fourth and one from the nine, Will Gardner made a perfect pass to find Charles Standberry in the end zone. It was a...

The story of the game was mistakes and Louisville made a ton of them. Multiple turnovers changed the game and put the Virginia Cavaliers in a position to win, which they did. The biggest mistake came on a botched punt by the special teams, allowing Virginia to take possession at the 25-yard line. In turn it led to a game-winning field...
Here’s the standings from last week. We’re not very good at picking games. Mr. Worldwide Jim Wombwell has the lead for week one.
Jim Wombwell 10-5
Ryan Ritchey 10-5
Nick Evans 9-6
Josh Wilson 9-6
Nick Curran 8-7
DET at CAR
MIA at BUF
Last year Kentucky played the Gators before everyone figured out that they just weren’t that good. And that may be putting it nicely as they won just one more game before losing their final eight en route to finishing 4-8. Florida won the game 24-7, but if the Cats could have figured out a way to move the ball they would have had a chance. To put into perspective how bad their...
Major League Baseball has changed a lot since the late 1990’s and early 2000’s. The Yankees dominated the game year after year, buying players, having the highest payroll, which led to more wins. Skip ahead to the year 2012 and that all changed, rather quickly. The small market teams earned TV deals, upping their payroll and they were able to compete with the bigger markets...
Nick Evans and Andrew Miller take it old school with the first ever Strait Pinkie Podcast. You know they were on the first ever Sunday Morning Hangover together back in November of 2011. Anyways, they rehash UK and U of L’s wins over the weekend and then break down their road match-ups on Saturday as the Cards go to Virginia and the Cats to the Swamp. They address John Calipari’s...
Big news dropped earlier Tuesday about an unprecedented event that University of Kentucky men’s basketball coach, John Calipari, was in the works of finalizing an NBA combine for UK players only. The event would be the first of its kind in the college basketball landscape. We’ve seen this done by colleges before, but in the football realm of things.
We’ve never seen the type...
The NFL is back. Yes, finally, and after a full day of action on the field we’ve got the Top 8 things that happened in Week 1’s games:
1. No list would be complete if I failed to mention that the cheerleaders are back. The Steelerettes, the Flight Crew up in New York, the Honey Bears in the Windy City and of course the world famous Cowboys cheerleaders. I don’t need to say...
Nick and Nick talk about Louisville’s win over Murray State and whether or not there is a QB controversy after Reggie Bonnafon played really well in extended action. They are also joined by UK football color analyst Jeff Piecoro to break down Kentucky’s win over Ohio State.
We’re going to do this every week. And we’re doing this in an attempt to make you feel better about yourself. Because our picks are likely to be awful. Here we go.
NO at ATL
BUF at CHI
TEN at KC
On Kentucky’s first drive they went 75 yards on ten plays and scored on a Patrick Towles touchdown pass to Dorian Baker with 11:27 to go in the first quarter.
On their second drive they went 80 yards on eight plays and scored on a Boom Williams touchdown run of 53 yards.
With 8:24 to go in the first quarter, it looked like it was going to be a romp. It looked like Kentucky would...

Just like week one the Louisville Cardinals wore black, Papa Johns Cardinal Stadium sold out and the final score was in the Cards favor. Louisville pounded the ball on the ground and lit up the scoreboard as seven different players got into the end zone as the Cards won 66-21 on Saturday night.
In a game in which the Cardinals were heavily...
Ohio enters Saturday’s contest with Kentucky coming off of five straight bowl appearances under head coach Frank Solich. So, they had success. And all UK fans remember the last time Ohio came to Lexington as the Bobcats took down the Wildcats 28-16 in 2004.
But, this Ohio team faces a challenge that the previous five teams haven’t had to face. They lost a lot of players from...

College football is back and with that the Kentucky Wildcats took the field for the first time in 2014. Despite Commonwealth Stadium being less than full for the opener, there is excitement about this season. Fans are excited about what Mark Stoops is doing. And Saturday gave us our first opportunity to see a bunch of players that are behind that excitement.
Whether or not Kentucky...

Auburn wide receiver Melvin Ray is know for his blazing speed. In their opener against Arkansas he caught a ball near the sideline, broke a tackle and then took off. But, look to Ray’s left and you will see the ball boy take off, as well. And he keeps up with him, in khakis. Step for step. I think he needs a call from either Mark Stoops or Bobby Petrino.
