Pick 6: Six Takeaways from UK’s 41-3 loss at LSU

The game ended late on Saturday night and then the Bengals got crushed yesterday, so I haven’t really been in the mood to write. Well, better than late than never, here are my takeaways from LSU’s crushing of the Wildcats. Bad starts have got to stop – They were able to overcome rough starts in their last two games, but you can’t do that in Death Valley. You can’t do that...

Pick 6: Six takeaways from Louisville’s 30-18 win over NC State

Let’s make this quick because there is still a lot of football to be watched. Michael Dyer won the Wheel of RBs and took advantage. In the ever-evolving rotation of running backs it was Michael Dyer’s turn today. No one had any clue this would be his day. In fact, earlier this week many wondered if we would see Dyer at all the rest of the year. We saw him today and we saw him...

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. With a few more really good recruiting classes like they have got the last two years, this team can be good. But on Saturday, Louisville has to worry about this NC State team that is now. And this team simply is not...

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...

Pick 6: Six Takeaways from Kentucky’s 48-14 win over Louisiana Monroe

After last week’s win over South Carolina, Kentucky needed to roll past ULM to continue their momentum. After a slow start that is exactly what they did. Here are my six takeaways. Slow starts have got to stop – Kentucky cannot continue to start like this and continue to win. This is now two weeks in a row where the Cats have done absolutely nothing in the first quarter. On...

Quick look at the South Carolina Gamecocks

At the start of the year, I had this game pegged as a loss. South Carolina was listed as a National Title contender and Kentucky was coming off of a 2-10 season. But now, five weeks in, I think the Cats can win this thing. Let’s take a quick look at the Gamecocks. USC is coming off of a 21-20 loss at Missouri, a game they led most of the way. Penalties and dropped passes in the...

Quick Look at the Syracuse Orange

It sounds odd to say a team that’s 4-1 is in a must-win game the first weekend in October, but I believe that is what Louisville faces tonight against Syracuse (2-2). The Cards are still searching for answers on offense and they will need to find them quick as they embark on the toughest part of their inaugural ACC schedule. After Syracuse, the Cards will run the gauntlet of at...

Pick 6: Six Takeaways from Louisville’s 20-10 win over Wake Forest

It wasn’t pretty at all, but the Cards escaped with a 20-10 win over the Deamon Deacons. Here are my six takeaways. Enter Brandon Radcliff – Listed fourth on the depth chart to start the game, Radcliff emerged as Louisville’s best back against Wake. A week after averaging 0.3 yards per carry on the ground as a team against FIU, Radcliff rushed it 17 times for 129 yards and...
