    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?

    Lesser of two evils is the point of "dumbing down" the offense. UofL and UK are both going to have huge games in the air but we'll just have to wait and see who comes out on top.

    With all the blowouts UL had last year why is their defense so inexperienced. Seems like everyone would've gotten plenty of game action last year to prepare for this year.

    We lost 7 defensive starters, including 1st round draft pick Amobi Okoye. 7 of 11 last year starters are gone. I think we have some significant inexperience on Defense.

    Wiht Okoye and the other starters gone the defense has struggled so far. I like the fact that UL has only had 1 sack in 2 games. Both teams do seem similar though. Both have high-powered offenses and obvious questions on defense.

    Now it is over. Louisville ALWAYS rises to the occasion when they are disrespected.

    Well it depends....they were spending a lot of time in Cover 2 and Cover 4....I think that we'll see a healthy dose of man to man this week, therefore while it is dumbing it down, it also allows these kids to just read and react.

    Nothing like a backup fullback to really get UL fired up.

    Man to man should work real well.I'm sure Burton and Lyons will like it.

    I really hope they go man to man with no one over top that would be great.

    Was that disrespect or the truth?

    [QUOTE=MountainThunder]I don't like UK being picked in this game. This is a plus for the Cards. They now have a point to prove coming into this game. Woodson stated that this will be their statement game, and I hope he is right. But the DT's getting injured on a soft run defense already, makes me more than a little bit nervous.

    On a positive note, Jason Leger was the SEC O Linemen of the week! Great job for the big boy from The Rock![/QUOTE]


    I remember him well. Mason County won the game by 2 in the '03 playoffs, but Leger was a beast. Played his heart out all game long.

    I hope U of L tries to matchup with Burton and Lyons with man-to-man single coverage.

    Coming from a team that got their butt handed to them last season, that is disrespect. UK's best shot at this one was to say UofL is a great team and that they hope to play well enough to win. By saying we are "exposed" they are breaking down any overconfidance UofL may be bringing into this game.
