    True, but Georgia is on the road and those fans will have nothing but revenge on their minds and so will the players, and Tennessee they way it looks, is on a tough, tough road so by the last game of the year I don't think Kentucky will be able to hang with them. Maybe I am wrong, which I was about Louisville too just my thoughts.

    One thing I will say is that UK is not going to sneak up on anyone this season. Everyone knows that the offense can play and they won't overlook UK.

    UT is not very good this year. I think UK beats them in Commonwealth.

    True, I was just saying. Miss State won't be an easy game. Miss State just beat Auburn. UK's offense is among the best in the SEC, but im not sold on their defense just yet. When they play Arkansas, LSU and Florida, I will see if the D is for real or not. But we all know the offesne is there, just the defense.

    How are they not good? because their record says 1-2? UK will have a time stopping Ainge and IMO Tennessee gets UK again this year.

    If Auburn had any kind of offense, that game wouldn't have been close. I think as long as UK doesn't overlook the Bulldogs it will be a blowout win for the Cats.

    Because they have been beaten soundly twice, and have looked bad in both cases.

    I agree, I said before the season that U.K. could very well be a better football team and not have as good of record as last season. I will stick with my original pick of 5-7 or 6-6 and hope for better. (more towards the 6-6 now)

    I just would love to see the day when 6-6 or 7-5 are considered bad records like they are at most places in the SEC.

    Both L's were against top 10 teams. Ainge has played good, but like Brohm in Louisville the defense just doesn't look to great.

    If Kentucky just takes it one game at a time they will be fine. This team is different...I see them honestly losing to LSU and Florida, and that's all. That puts them at 10-2, and a New Year's Day Bowl. Call me crazy, but this is definitely realistic.

    10-2?? I don't see that at all. That means they win 7 of their next 9 games which I also don't see at all.

    At the beginning of the season I said 9-3 and you all thought I was smoking something. My prediction is looking good right now. Also how in the world can you all think Tennessee will beat us? If anything we will beat Tennessee by 20-25.

    Please don't forget:

    UK's offensive line is young, inexperienced, and weak. That will play a major factor going into the meat of the schedule.

    Also, the defensive line has been plagued with injuries which will factor in as well.

    These 9-3, 8-4 predictions are too lofty in my opinion. 6-6 or 7-5 is much more attainable/realistic and then anything better than that, is purely a bonus.

    Let's beat Arkansas and start this murderous schedule out at 4-0!

    So I guess if it was UL, you would think that they would lose to all those teams as well?
