UK Football Preview: Mississippi State at Kentucky

The last time the Kentucky Wildcats got absolutely creamed at LSU, they came back the next week and beat Mississippi State, on the road. Their next home game was against Georgia, a game they won and was really the first big win in the Rich Brooks era. It was also the last time they went .500 in conference play. This was 2006. Now they look to get up off the mat and standing in their...

On Sunday night, Randle put up eight points, five rebounds and two...

Three Thoughts from Big Blue Madness

Last night, 24,000 fans once again showed up to Rupp Arena to watch what was basically glorified starting lineup introductions and some practice drills. As a kid I was enamored by this whole thing, but as I get older and older, it has lost it’s luster a little bit. Back when it was Midnight Madness, it was cool. I guess it is still kind of cool, but it’s not my cup of tea anymore...

Quick Look at the LSU Tigers

With a last second win last week in Gainesville, LSU avoided their first 0-3 start in the SEC since 1999. This is a young team, but they are maturing quickly. They never quit on the road against the Gators and were able to sneak out a win late. This is a trend that you saw even in their loss to Mississippi State. After being down a lot early, they hung in there and nearly pulled...

Quick Look at the North Carolina State Wolfpack

This is a young North Carolina team that is in total rebuild mode. 70-percent of their team is made up of freshman, but they are excited about head coach Dave Doeren.

Pick 6: Six Takeaways from Louisville’s 23-17 loss to Clemson

The ending of that one. Wow. Here’s my six takeaways for whatever they are worth. The Spike – Down six with a little over a minute to go and no timeouts, it looked bleak for the Cards. Then all of a sudden it didn’t look bleak anymore. In fact, it look like they were going to find a way to sneak one out in Death Valley. On the first play of their desperation drive, Will Gardner...
