    After Hal Mumme won some games with smoke and mirrors UK re-named a street after him only to wath that "program" crash and burn.
    In Guy Morriss you had a coach in place who won with what was there and yet your AD let him get away.
    In Rich Brooks you have an overall loser who was living in retirement from coaching because no one wanted him. He dumbed down the schedule to get bowl eligible and beat an uninspired team in a death spiral in that bowl game.

    Accept that the curse of the Bear is still in full effect and that one of the things it does is give you a decent (I won't say good based on the quality of wins that UK had) season every once in a while only to watch you have your hopes shattered.

Louisville will have, across the board, the advangtage when their offense lines up against Kentucky's defense. I think that Kentucky will have an advantage against Louisville's pass defense but be at a disadvantage to Louisville's rush defense. This, to me, will translate into an inability to sustain drives, much as they could not this past September. UK will have downfield scoring, but I don't think they're the machine Louisville is on offense. And I know I'd rather have Louisville's defense than UK's.

    3) UL has lost more defensively than UK. UK had a very young defense last year and is bound to get better.



    I think UK has a real shot of winning next season.

    3)I firmly feel that Louisville's defense will be exponentially better next season than this one. As far as UK's defense, they will have to get ready for a completely different scheme and they will not have seen CLOSE to UL's weapons in the first two games.

    ALSO, I doubt UoL will put 63,000 in the stands more than 2 times a season. WV, and UK every other year will probably pack the expanded stadium.

    3, It's flat out saying we don't want UL "any time, any place"



    4. Are you really OK with UK saying we want to bury a game between our in state rival over NATIONAL exposure?



    I could care less about the venom from either side.



    I'm ALWAYS out of town or working in town when they played this game on Labor Day Sunday.



    With the game on NATIONAL TV it was never a problem to tune in.



    The actions of the UK athletic department want to down play the UL game. Why? Because as you stated they don't want to be embarrassed on the big stage.



    How can you not see the reason for moving the game is weak? UL is too good? I get it...

Otherwise, it's just rolling the dice, same as it would be to play it in the first game.



    There is no competitve advantage that I see to playing the game later.



    If the logic is to let UK get a few games under the belt, that really blew up in Mitch Barnhart's face, considering U of L has a new coach and therefore much more to gain from a competitive stand point to getting a few extra reps down before the game.

In week 1 with a ton returning and playing at home on national TV against the Cards in the first game under the new coach, UK had a very good chance of pulling the shocking upset and being huge national news. Now with little to no national attention on the game it means less to the entire state. That's not good IMO. They made a bold decision and now it looks like a very bad one. That's all I'm saying...

    This game will be live somewhere.

    In my opinion, on ESPN or ESPN2.

    Lest we forget, this year it is an SEC game (network wise) so the determination of what game they will choose to broadcast will not be made for quite a while. It can run as close to 5 days before the date to be played but usually over a week in advance.

    In addition, we usually don't hear of the game time and station until at least June.

    If you look at the overall schedule, the UK/UL game will be no worse than the 3rd best game that day, in the SEC. So there is a really good chance of live TV and a good chance ESPN will pick it up.

    Other SEC games that day: Tennessee at Florida, and Arkansas v. Alabama (will not be the SEC debut for Saban, they play Vandy the week before).
    Quote Originally Posted by The Red Rambler

Louisville will be a Top 10 team at that point playing an in-state SEC rival and both will be likely be undefeated by that point. It is even possible UK could be ranked 25 or 24 depending on how the chips fall elsewhere in the country. It's safe to say the game will be picked up by one of the 43 ESPN networks, FoxSports, CBS, CSTV, or any of the other 436 ways college football can be shown on a given weekend.



    I see a lot of accusations made on here about UK but have yet to see a link where UK asked the game to be taken off live TV. Please provide a link or someone contact the Sports Information Office to clarify if the University of Kentucky asked the game to be taken off the slate.



    If someone can confirm, with evidence this was the case than it was a stupid move that I cannot imagine even someone as old as Rich Brooks would make. It doesn't matter who you are playing you want your logo and your program on National TV. Even if you lose by 3 or 4 touchdowns the opening of that game and the atmosphere is going to stick in the minds of those watching the game. And, if by some chance, you win then thats just icing on the cake.

    I think Louisville fans need to be a humble in victory. Just imagine if UK wins. Just imagine.
    Quote Originally Posted by RockPride

I also feel they think they need the extra time to get ready for the Cards. However, deep inside, I am quite sure that Mitch and Rich, would rather play the Cards Game 1 instead of 3 THIS season. They should be more game ready early this year, than the Cards.

    Among the teams that Louisville has beaten on weeknights



    Miami

    Florida State

    West Virginia



    What do they all have in common? They would beat UK soundly, whenever they played.



    Louisville has overtaken and paseed UK in the football world thanks to the exposure they have gotten in those games. Maybe before acting all superior about your team you should have some success against someone beside Directional U.
    Quote Originally Posted by 5wide

    I'll give you the short answer...it can't help.

    "You can't argue with the results we have had", This type of arrogance for a coach who is 17-30 says so much.

How stupid does it sound to say we need the time to get ready? The entire off season isn't enough time? Three more weeks with two games against weak compitition? And this year Louisville will have a new coach, it's the perfect time to catch them in game 1, and Brooks and Barnhart took themselves out of that.

    Being on TV was not nearly as big concern as it has been spun. Most non ticket holders held a high hope that it would be picked up, and in the end, it was.



    Being the only game in the time slot (and thus a bigger audience) was the only real concern, but that was not nearly as big a deal as some have tried to imply.



    And the small negative of that, to be honest, was outweighed in the minds of many UK fans by the bonus of it being such a thorn in the side for so many whining UL fans. I know for a fact that it has been a source of laughter for a LOT of UK fans that UL fans have been so torn up over such a non issue.



    I don't like to take sides in these UK/UL issues for the most part because even though I am deeply Blue, I hold no disdain for the Cards and other than one game a year, like to see them win. But I gotta say that for a program who has been far superior in every sense of the word, the team with the mostest in this series, the UL fans letting something as trivial as two weeks and a time slot work you guys into such a tizzie is not very becomming from the outside looking in.



    If the Cards fans are as comfortably seated in the catbird seat as they claim to be, it would seem they would just make like a duck over this issue and go out and TCB. Instead we keep hearing that same old noise from out of the west. And from here, it is comical.

I truly feel that Louisville's defense will look night and day, different than the one that has been torched in 3 of the 8 quarters they have played thus far.

    However, I think UL is still a little too much for UK. Hope I am dead wrong, but here is my pick.



    UL 49

    UK 42



    With an over/under of 99 as proposed earlier, I think they will be barely under it.

I think we see the same UK defense that we saw in late last season against Clemson and Tennessee, and I think they will force 2 or 3 turnovers.



    With the three-headed rushing attack that UK has in Little, Smith and Dixon I think they will be able to control the game and the clock just enough to be able to capitalize efficiently on these turnovers. I believe Woodson will show up huge in this game and provide one of his patented game managing efficient performances. This game will be back and forth into the fourth quarter, and I believe UK forces the last of their turnovers to seal the victory.



    Kentucky 38



    Louisville 34

    Let's keep it real. I'm both a Louisville and Kentucky fan. But all fairness, let's be realistic, Kentucky stands no chance against the Cards. I'm picking Louisville to win 48-27.



    Of course everyone would love to see the Cats pull off the upset, but it's not happening, Brian Brohm is too prepared. The Cards coming off a un-focused game against Middle Tenn. look for the Cards to win this one by 3 TD's.

    Something else that definitly plays in UK's favor is the home field advantage. The crowd is going to be as fired up and loud as its ever been.

I really feel that will make a huge difference in how much pressure the line can get on the QB, I certainly feel the tackling will be improved, because that is indeed a lack of focus issue, that can be corrected by Wednesday. Things are great, Louisville has found so much that they can improve on, while still being 2-0. That's awesome.

We have one more game before our first test @ UK, and I feel safe to say that our defense will be improved by then. And besides, the defense only looked "bad" the very first possession of the game, in which Murray scored their only touchdown. After that, they were VERY solid the rest of the game.



    If you think UK can score with UofL, as you said, we'll soon see how it plays out.

    The question is not how far. The question is, do you possess the constitution, the depth of faith, to go as far as is needed?

    Well, from skimming over it the one thing I'm really noticing is that people are talking about how much UL's defense lost since last season as the reason they lost this game... But from those posts, this is the best UL defense ever? Color me confused.

    Other than that, Fletch, you have a lot of time on your hands.

    UK would have won bigger in Week 1 and would have done so on the Varsity version of ESPN without Florida/UT, Nebraska/USC, Michigan/ND, Arkansas/Alabama and so on filling the highlight space. I still think it was a bad call moving the game, as it does not change the date of the game at UL where the Cats have had the most trouble. It was a great game and congrats on the victory, but I stand by where I was quoted here...

    I'm glad the game was played when it was played, personally... UK also got the game of the week replay exposure this morning... If they win big, that doesn't happen. I would rather experience the great game I watched last night than see UK win big, and I think that this game WILL help in recruiting.

    The question is not how far. The question is, do you possess the constitution, the depth of faith, to go as far as is needed?

    Nomination for post of the football season....
    Great work...how long did it take you to post that?

    Most UL fans thought their defense would be better this year, and I didn't see that because of the losses of Okoye and some key members in the secondary. Through the first two games their safety's were suckers...and it happened last night in the big play.
    To quote RockPride...."I LOVE IT"

    Lastly, many people talk about the 18%....it is amzing to see on the UL boards how they are turning on Kragthorpe, Cassity, and even launching some arrows at Jurich for settling for Kragthorpe.

    I just came home from the Colonial Square festival in Danville. I noticed that the Wildcat fans have came out of the woodworks today. Almost everyone had on blue and white, including me!

    There were many more that could have been posted that were far worse but out of respect, I didn't post them.

    hmmm....

    BIG Difference. Smith won a NCAA championship. Kragthorp has allow an undiciplined team to hit the feild three games in a row. You can't convince me that we lose that game with Petrino at the helm. Blown coverage on third and long... seriously lack of discipline lets that happen. Kragthorpe doesn't have the these (the same who were successful last season) playing at thier highest level.

    UK not wiining the final four is one thing. Losing to UK in football is Much much more emabarrasing.

    I actually think the defense played well enough to win last night...did they play great? No...but they were playing an exceptional offense, they had two blown coverages, and kudos to Woodson for recognizing it at the right times....I hate that Louisville fans are so sudden to want to hang someone out.
