Pregame scuffle, Kyle Bolin, DeVante Parker. That is your summary for the 2014 game. Enjoy!
“They’ve got more Kentucky players out there than they have Louisville players.” Of course they do.
Seems kind of like a “Flashback Friday” type of video if you really pay attention to the players in it and the years that most are from. But hey, you do you Kentucky.
Garrick McGee and Tobijah Hughley (from Lexington) met with the media on Wednesday to talk about Saturday’s game against Kentucky.
Here are some interesting stats comparing UL and UK football from CFBStats.com. These stats are also filtered to get averages against POWER 5 teams only. This takes away Louisville’s game against Samford and Kentucky’s game against Charlotte. Stats in those games can be very misleading.
18 UL 325.2 ypg
50 UK 395.8 ypg
60 UL 381 ypg
75 UK 351 ypg
The common response when you tell a UK fan about these stats and how we are better is something about SOS or asking who we have played. Well……
You have been waiting all season for this, the UofL vs. UK football game to close the 2015 regular season. With a desperate Kentucky team needing a win to secure bowl eligibility for the first time in five years, the Cardinals travel to Lexington looking to end any bowl aspirations of the ‘Cats for a second straight season.
After Kentucky’s win over Charlotte on Saturday, the conversation naturally turned towards their next game against Louisville. The Courier-Journal’s Jon Hale was in the locker room and got some feedback from some of the Kentucky players with their thoughts on the rivalry with the Cards.
Here is your social media tip for the day if you are a college athlete: If you have a game at the end of November, posting about it in June may come back to bite you. Such is the case for Patrick Towles, who posted this gem back in June.
Tis the season, my friends and foes. Giving thanks, sure. But giving grief, absolutely.
The week fans have had circled, underlined, and plenty of exclamation points leading up to opening weekend, because duh… It’s the most locally anticipated game of the season.
For one, the rivalry.
For two… Bowl eligibility.
In not-so-shocking news, class of 2016 4-star wide receiver Desmond Fitzpatrick decommitted from the Louisville Cardinals on Sunday evening. Sometimes, the writing is just on the wall in these kinds of situations. Now I am not going to sit here and say “If you didn’t see this coming, you are dumb and weren’t paying attention.” I will leave that kind of attitude for others. Informing you is what we are here for, and that is all I am doing.
