    Southern Miss game will set the tone and as you all have said will not be easy. With that said, I look for them to pull it out as it would be catastrophic to drop two consecutive openers to the "fighting Brett Favre's".

    Southern Miss was supposed to win the conference last year and went 7-6 with losses to Old Dominion and Charlotte. Lost their QB and several other players. I will be be..... cheering on UK.

    They could legitimately start the season 6-1 or 5-2

    As I recall, Kentucky dominated the 1st half against Southern Miss last year. Southern Miss scored late in the 1st half and then came out to dominate the 2nd half. After the game, Southern Miss's head coach (former coordinator at UK) stated he was almost embarrassed that it took him until half time to realize that Kentucky hadn't changed its defensive signals since the year before. Southern Miss dominated the 2nd half and beat Kentucky in Lexington.

    I think Kentucky is far more talented than Southern Miss but it's Kentucky football, so a loss would not be shocking.

    Just took time for Gran too take over. I said last year he was the fix Stoops needed.

    I am a fan of UK football. Not sure if I qualify as hardcore. I don't think I am a hardcore UK football fan. That being said I do expect them to win at Southern Miss but only because I expect UK to be better this year than what they were last year.

    Just read Stoops said Johnson is the starter at qb week 1.

    UK had only three players out of the 78 chosen on the SEC media preseason team. I have to think that the postseason team will have more.

    I'm thinking we go atleast 7-5 this season, I'm gonna say 8-4 and a bowl win.
