The Krystal Ball - The Cats and Dawgs Part Two Edition

Hello everyone and welcome back to another TKB. Last week was more like it, going a perfect 7-0 making the record for the season 13-6.

It is another huge weekend in the SEC so let's get right to it.

 

Georgia at Kentucky- (4:00 ESPN) After having the week off, the Wildcats put their 28 game home win streak on the line against the last team to win at Rupp, the Bulldogs. In case you don't remember, March 4, 2009 Georgia won 90-85 in a game I think most of…

Cats Embark on Tough Stretch

By Ira D. Combs Syndicated Columnist

Tri State Sports Media Service Inc.



I sure hope everyone enjoyed last week's demolishing of the worst Auburn and LSU basketball teams that I've ever witnessed. My sidekick on press row at Rupp Arena, Lonny Demaree affectionaltely known in Central Kentucky as "The Mayor of UK Football" literally had to embarrassingly wake me up with a shoulder shake at one point in the LSU… Continue

The Krystal Ball- The Cats and Tigers Edition

Kentucky's 2011 football recruiting class

 

This is a combination of the three primary databases used to evaluate prospects.  I would have liked to add 24/7 sports to this as well, but they have only evaluated a couple of Kentucky's current verbals at this time.  The 40-yard dash times are based on times recorded at combines or an estimate based on…

Rupp Arena Needs An Attitude Check

     When Rupp Arena is rocking, there is no better place in the country to watch a college basketball game.   When the crowd is excited and on their feet, you can sometimes literally feel Rupp Arena shake.   I love going to Rupp when Kentucky is playing a big game.  You can feel the "juice" in the air.

 

But.......I really feel like the folks who are responsible for the game day promotions at a UK basketball game at Rupp Arena are really "dropping the ball"…
