It is not always a big deal to go undrafted in the NFL Draft. If you are good enough, a team will find you and give you a shot. This happens every year. Teams make their picks, and the draft ends. Then plenty of players sign with teams as free agents. So sometimes it isn’t a bad thing to go undrafted, because then you get to (hopefully) have options and you can make the best decision for yourself.

As we approach Senior Day 2012 for the football season, I tried to think of what kind of post to make on here to honor the seniors. After thinking of a few different ideas, I figured to just make it simple by saying: Thank you! Think about it…the seniors that have been here for their whole 4-5 year career committed to UofL when it really wasn’t a great place to commit to. They have stuck it out, and made this an attractive football program once again, and for that, I say thank you.
The struggles and hardships endured in offseason conditioning programs, spring practices, and training camp become lessons learned for the winner of one of Kentucky’s most famous battles, the Battle for the Governor’s Cup. For the loser, these same struggles and hardships seem like wasted effort. Regardless of each teams season outlook, this game is the most important. A win against the rival marks a successful season regardless of the final record. Currently, we are less than a week away from the start of the college football season and the latest installment of this rivalry. Here are my views on the game:
