Fan Breakdown: The Secondary



Background



There is no doubt that recent success on the gridiron for Kentucky football has been a good ride for all. Although moderate success for the nation’s upper tier programs, this has certainly been a positive time to be a UK football fan. Now, Kentucky players and coaches are going into uncharted waters in recent history, and that is continuing and even improving upon this success. With victories come… Continue

Gazing at Star Ratings

In today’s world of the internet, instant news and websites trying to increase their traffic we take a look at star rankings. What do star rankings actually mean? Whether fans visit Rivals, Scout or ESPN, they receive conflicting information on recruits. The truth is star rankings mean very little. College coaches put very little stock (if any) into recruiting players.



Personally, I like ESPN’s evaluation system the best, but most people use rivals when they refer to recruits or… Continue

Late July Football Talk and Memorable Quotes

By Ira D. Combs Syndicated Columnist

Tri State Sports Media Service Inc.


We're deep into the summer of 2010 and staring down that media driven story of many years in the past that the UK-UofL football game should be the first game of the season so the two flagship universities and the sport of football can get mega coverage all summer from the statewide media contingent. Yet, I've counted only a combined… Continue

A UK "Pick-Me-Up"

I can't even pretend that I know what it feels like to be a UK football player right now. I can't even act like I know the pain and disappointment the Cats feel right now after losing 30-24 to Tennessee in overtime. None of us really know.

But I do know this - life goes on.

It's not like this UK football team will never get to play another game. They've got their fourth straight bowl win to look forward to.

It's not like this UK football program will never get to play Tennessee… Continue

Patting Papaw Brooks on the Back

Jerry Claiborne couldn't do it.

Bill Curry couldn't do it.

Hal Mumme and Guy Morriss couldn't do it.

Once again Rich "Papaw" Brooks has added another "first" on his ever-growing long list of "firsts" by winning AT Georgia 34-27.

WOW!



Time for me to eat a little crow. I boldly predicted that not only would Georgia beat Kentucky, but that the Bulldogs would have little problem covering the 10-point spread. What an idiot! I was wrong. I am glad to admit that I was… Continue

Building the Bowl Resume

Ira D. Combs Syndicated Columnist

Tri State Sports Media Service Inc.




A much healthier UK football team than in recent weeks with fresh legs finished off a pesky Vanderbilt team with a very impressive second half last Saturday in Music City, Tennessee 24-13. Mainly because the Cats offensive and defensive lines manhandled Vanderbilt after intermission and it didn't hurt UK's fortunes when the Commodore… Continue

Was beating Vanderbilt the biggest win of Rich Brooks' UK career?

Hear me out on this.

Sure...beating LSU when they were ranked #1 in the country two years ago was huge.

And beating Louisville earlier that season when they were ranked in the top 10 was big as well.

Three bowl victories are also enormous accomplishments for this UK football program.

Even the road win at Auburn this season was right up there at the top of the list, but I dare to argue that UK's recent win over Vanderbilt may be the biggest win of Rick Brooks UK coaching… Continue

Hartline? Fidler? Newton? Mossakowski?

After UK's 38-20 loss to third ranked Alabama Crimson Tide, Rich Brooks was asked specifically about his starting quarterback, Mike Hartline. Brooks said that Hartline was basically "a work in progress". He admitted that Hartline didn't play "as well as we would have liked, but he's our best option right now."



Granted Hartline made some mistakes against Alabama. His first interception was horrible - a very bad decision. However, I would like to point out that it is going to be… Continue
