This year’s UK at U of L football game feels different. Is the move to the end of the year good for the rivalry?

When they first announced that this season’s UK/UofL football game would be played at the end of the year, I quickly rejected all of the complaints. Most of the complaints pointed towards the fact that they liked it being the first game. I quickly bounced back by saying that I liked it as the first game too, but it’s only the first game 50-percent of the time. The other 50-percent...

Well, here are some cocktail recipes from Captain Morgan that you...

‘Twas The Night Before Thanksgiving

There’s a stupid article quickly making rounds right now proclaiming “9 Signs That You Are Too Old To Go Out On Thanksgiving Eve“. The first of which says, “You graduated high school in 2006″. Well, if that was the case I would have been ineligible to out on Thanksgiving Eve the past…well, I’m old…numbers aren’t really necessary. The truth is that Thanksgiving...

Quick look at Louisville at Notre Dame

Louisville travels to South Bend on Saturday to face Notre Dame and it’s awesome. This is probably the coolest thing about playing in the ACC. You get to go to South Bend and play the Irish every once in a while. Even cooler, the Irish will travel to Louisville in 2019. But, that’s forever away, so let’s take a look at Saturday’s match-up. Notre Dame is struggling of late...

ESPN Announces Six-Day Hold on UofL-UK Game Time

The ACC put the ever-awesome six-day hold on selecting a game time for the Kentucky at Louisville finale. It looks like the game will either be at noon or 7 pm and my money is on the later start. There are two spots at noon on ESPN/ABC or ESPN2 and my guess is that those two will go to Duke and Wake Forest and Miami and Pittsburgh. The Cats and Cards aren’t getting the 8 pm ABC...

Pick 6: Six Takeaways from UK’s 1,000,000-16 loss at Tennessee

Yeah, I know that Tennessee didn’t score a million points on Saturday afternoon. But, they could have. In the last two games, the Wildcats have now giving up 113 points. Georgia was pissed and it made a little bit of sense. Tennessee was 4-5 and it doesn’t make as much sense. Here are my six takeaways. Tackling is hard – At least it is for these Wildcats. It’s hard to win...

Sorry that it’s been so slow on the blog this week

I know it’s been slow this week on the blog and I apologize. Sometimes it’s tough to juggle the real job, shipping orders, family stuff, other stuff, and finding time to write. I really wanted to get a Tennessee preview up, along with a podcast preview, but it just wasn’t in the cards this week. Thanks to everyone that read my piece on Patrick McSweeney. Last Sunday was really...

Patrick McSweeney plays for Bellarmine against Louisville; Another reason why sports are awesome

Sometimes the sports that we love play the role of a platform. And when they do so, we move the spotlight away from the ball and instead focus on something of much greater importance. And that is exactly what happened on Sunday afternoon at the KFC Yum! Center. The story of Sunday’s exhibition between Louisville and Bellmarine was Patrick McSweeney. A 15-year old boy that has spent...

Pick 6: Six takeaways from Louisville’s 38-19 win over BC

I know I’m late, but the game ended late last night, then we were on early on ESPN 680 this morning, then Bellarmine and Louisville played, and then I had dinner with the fam. So here are my six takeaways from the game. It’s gonna be a quick one. This was a really good win. This thing set up for a big time trap. The Cards were coming off of a frustrating loss to FSU. A game...

Pick 6: Six Takeaways from Kentucky’s 63-31 loss to Georgia

I could’ve started writing this thing after the punt return touchdown in the third quarter, but instead decided that I was pretty comfortable on the couch. Well, now I am no longer comfortable because I am writing. Here we go. Kentucky could’ve ran 15 guys out there on defense and it wouldn’t have mattered. Georgia looked like they were playing a JV defense all Saturday afternoon...

Louisville at Boston College Football Preview

Boston College ranks 10th in the country in rushing yards so you know they are going to pound it. That is all they are going to do. Pound it. Pound it. Pound it. Because defenses know they want to run, they are going to run it at you in different ways. They will give you several different looks. They will line up in shotgun, pistol, singleback, and more, but expect them to run a...

Georgia at UK Football Preview

I’m writing two posts this week, so I’m going to keep both of them quick and to the point. Plus, none of you have the attention span to read all of my words, anyways. You know the story. Georgia gave up 418 yards on the ground last week in their loss to Florida. The second most yards on the ground allowed in their program’s history. Their defense had been improving. In their...
