That about sums up my prediction for how the kitty cats will feel on Saturday afternoon. So you can take that and move on, or read on if you care to. Sometimes with this blog, I just report the facts and keep everything professional. This time? Not so much. I am going into 100% fan-mode here, because that is what I am first and foremost.
If there is 1 thing that Cards and Cats fans can agree on, it’s that this is the best rivalry in all of college sports. Don’t you want to see all of the details of this rivalry played out in a documentary? You can help make that happen! Even if you donate just $1, every little bit counts to get this project funded and completed.
Wouldn’t it be awesome to have an ESPN 30 for 30 on our rivalry? It would give us so much pride to be able to show the rest of the country what we already know.

I first had a clever little Louisville vs the SEC paragraph typed up to begin this, but I scrapped that and will just dive right into what I am thinking. UK football fans…ease up a little bit and relax. Look, I am happy that UK is landing some actual D1 talent. None of our wins over you have ever really meant anything when it comes to our strength of schedule. Your biggest bowl in recent years is the Music City Bowl or the Liberty Bowl. So could we really be pumped about having that W on our schedule? I want you all to be competitive. I want UofL to beat UK by 20-30 of course, but then if UK makes some noise in the SEC? Then good for us! But it never seems to happen.
Yep, that is what Travis Waldron thinks. Check out this nice little article that he wrote and decide for yourself. Basically, UK does it right, and UofL does it wrong. What do you think??? Here is the link to the site, but I have posted the article below. Pay attention to where he graduated from…
Travis Waldron is a reporter/blogger for ThinkProgress.org at the Center for American Progress Action Fund. Travis grew up in Louisville, Kentucky, and holds a BA in journalism and political science from the University of Kentucky. Before coming to ThinkProgress, he worked as a press aide at the Health Information Center and as a staffer on Kentucky Attorney General Jack Conway’s 2010 Senate campaign. He also interned at National Journal’s Hotline and was a sports writer and political columnist at the Kentucky Kernel, the University of Kentucky’s daily student newspaper.

UK football recruit Ryan Timmons is going to announce his college choice today. He attends Franklin County High School in Frankfort, KY. He is set to choose between Kentucky and Florida. So what is the weird part about this? How about the RV that is parked at his high school today?!

There have been some interesting developments today in the recruitment of Trinity High School star defensive end Jason Hatcher. Steve Jones, of the Courier-Journal, has been on top of this story, and most of this info comes from his blog, which you can read here.

Short and sweet, here are the predictions for today’s game from Team CSZ!
Justin Renck: Cards win 74-60. Too much chaos caused by Siva and Russ on defense; too many scorers for the Cards.
Jeremy Wahman: I say too much Russ, too much Gorgui, too much D. Cards win 80-65.
Steven Rummage: 77-65 Cards. UofL defense doesn’t allow UK to break 70 and Russ Smith goes for 35.
Paige Sherrard: Tough environment for UK; Siva wants to beat the Cats badly for his 1st time. Cards win 78-69.

The environment of the Yum! Center for today’s game is going to be insane. To date, UK has only played one intense non neutral game, against Notre Dame, in which the Cats were defeated 64-50. Can their Freshmen adjust to the hostility, energy, and pure insanity of the Yum! Center??

One of the best moments in this rivalry happened in the 2008-2009 season. The Cards ended up being the #1 overall seed in the NCAA Tournament, and the Cats played in the NIT. But none of that mattered on this day. In this rivalry, anything can happen! And yes, Earl Clark almost gave this game away!
