Back in Black...

       Just yesterday I officially entered a period of mourning for football at the University of Kentucky. I believe it my duty to wear a black armband for thirty days at the end of which I shall be forever free of any further need to acknowledge the existence of the program. This duty was brought about by the untimely euthenasia performed on our Cats yesterday by "The Ole Ball Coach" and his brood of steroidal 'Cocks.        For the past several years I have been beating a muted drum in…See More

""3 yards and a cloud of despair."   Whether people agree with your conclusions or not, your post was worth it just for that line.  Thank you.   I love the Cats, I love going to games (even if I'm frustrated by the…"

"The thing is, if you don't show any passion then UK will lose out on money and in return will hurt all of the programs. UK/WKU game was on ESPNU this year, even though it was a horrible game with two bad teams. Why did we not have to watch this…"

We Don't Ask for Much

       Having been in this position for almost fifty years, you would think I would have grown accustomed to the self inflicted misery that comes from being a Kentucky football fan. Why that cluster Saturday night against U of L depressed me after the regimes of Charlie Bradshaw and John Ray and Fran Curci and Bill Curry and Hal Mumme is beyond comprehension. I no longer dream of dominance by our football program: I am prepared to accept competent mediocrity, so why do I feel such malaise on…See More

"I agree with the fix. It is financial and an extreme commitment that holds us back. Money talks and everything that comes with it creates the winning combination. If school spirit was enough then the Ivy League would still be dominating."

Walter commented on Ray Montgomery's blog post Football Complex
"Man, you struck a nerve with those comments. Asympathetic nerve. I love UK basketball and I love UK football just as much. It's like having two kids. How could you love one more than the other unless you are just a fair weathered fan? If the…"

Football Complex

       Every few days I wander through spreading the gospel and trying to fire up the semifaithful Wildcat football fans for the beginning of the season. It seems a thankless job, but some one will always muck the stables while the thoroughbreds in Rupp get the celebrity treatment. Thing is, I love Kentucky basketball...when it is basketball season, but right now, as usual, it seems that more people interested in Kentucky athletics care where Archie Goodwin ends up playing his college hoops…See More

AJP1944 commented on Ray Montgomery's blog post Eternal (but unwarranted) Optimism
"A couple of points. (1) We have much better talent on defense than most UK fans realize. That, coupled with Rick Minter, is why our defense will be the strength of the team this year.   (2) I hope, for all our sakes, you are right about Morgan…"

Eternal (but unwarranted) Optimism

       I think I will drop my usual detractor pose today, and attempt to convince myself why, after four decades of misery, I should adopt an optimistic stance concerning this years Wildcat football season. I have a few reasons which, I believe, bear some merit, but I have found that logic has little to do with Kentucky football. At any rate, so be it. Following, justified or not, are the reasons for my annual optimism.       1)  The offensive line: Cliche - The games are won in the trenches;…See More
