"Thumbs Up, Thumbs Down" - Gamecocks Edition

Thumbs Up





Mike Hartline - I've eaten a lot of crow in my day but this may be the biggest helping and sweetest tasting. Mr. Hartline played like an NFL caliber QB Saturday. His needle threading touchdown pass to LaRod King was as good a pass as you will ever see and his touchdown celebration...

well it was awesome too! He got the shaft in not getting the player of the week.… Continue

"Thumbs Up, Thumbs Down" - War Eagle Edition



Thumbs Up:




Mike Hartline - The kid just loves the 2nd weekend of October. One year removed from the injury and his best performance at USC Jr., he comes out again with his best. He had 5 incompletes the entire night. Three of those weren't his fault so he had 2 bad passes and no INT's (or pick 6's in his recent case). Rosey Cheeks has become one of the (if not the) best pocket passers in the SEC right now. I've bashed him many times but I'll give credit… Continue

"Thumbs Up, Thumbs Down" - Rebels Edition

Thumbs Up:



Ryan Tydlacka - 73 yards is ridiculous for a punt. Had a strong leg all day.



The Grove - Lived every bit up to its hype. Great fans, great food, great setup. Count this Wildcat fan as jealous



Craig McIntosh -Anytime the Cats go perfect for FG's in a game this year, that has to be recognized. Also came in to bailout out Mansour who couldn't keep the ball in the field.



Mike Hartline - A horrid… Continue

"Thumbs Up, Thumbs Down" - Gators Edition

Thumbs Up:



Thumbs Up:



-Chris Matthews - Two touchdowns, 114 yards receiving with an injured hand. Was the best true WR on the football field for both teams.



- Fake FG - Very well executed and looked like it really ticked off Urban Meyer. If you had this aggressiveness throughout the offense and defensive game plans might have been a little different ballgame



-Health - We seemed to make it out of the… Continue

"Thumbs Up, Thumbs Down" - Zips Edition

Short and simple this week just like the Cats performance.





Thumbs Up:



Derrick Locke: Another great day for the former walk on as he passes the 2,000 yrd mark. Take away his injury bug issues over the last few years (and Brooks refusal to play him over more senior running backs, but hey thats an old rant) and this kids is easily settling in at the top of the UK rushing records. Instead he should end up top 5. Not bad for a defensive… Continue

"Thumbs Up, Thumbs Down" - WKU Edition

Thumbs Up:



Randall Cobb - Wow! What can you say? Starting to join the bandwagon that he is the best player in the SEC. Three touchdowns, 3 different ways and honestly I felt he didn't touch the ball enough. Love the passing out of the Wildcat for the second straight week. That will reap big rewards further in the season as well. Totally wished he could have gotten a score running or on kickoff for the quad or quint. If he was playing at a royalty football program… Continue

"Thumbs Up , Thumbs Down" - Louisville 2010 Edition

Thumbs Up:



- Offensive Line - 230 rushing yards; 0 sacks... that's some serious O-line work. I'd say Mike Summers lived up to the hype as a new coach. These guys just consistently knocked the UL defensive line off the ball the entire day. They also provided Hartline quality protection. Even more impressive when you think of the youth and inexperience on this line, 3 new starters were broken in yesterday and they lived up to the hype and praise heaped upon… Continue

Conference Realignment: Collateral Damage

It’s all the rage these days. Everybody’s doing it. Peer pressure at its finest. And like almost all peer pressure mistakes, someone is going to get hurt and get hurt badly… in this case it could be tough times in Lawrence and Louisville among others.



Quick rehash for those of you investigating in Birmingham and not paying attention to rest of the NCAA Sports landscape: If Texas and Co. (UT, TX AM, Baylor, Oklahoma, OSU and TX
Tech) march off to the Pacific… Continue

Spring Practice Report - Day 5

Another nice day for practice this spring, we may be approaching a record... hopefully the weather will hold out for the last 2 open practices Friday and Saturday.

- The pads were really poppin' as the Cats held their first true full contact scrimmage. The Cats did a situational first down scrimmage. According to Coach Phillips the defense won.

- As for the QB's, it was another tough day, but we finally saw someone step forward. Mike Hartline had a pretty good…

Spring Practice Report - Day 4

- Worst day yet for the QB's. Especially for Mossakowski who threw his worst balls of the practice so far. He ran most of the day with the 3's. Hartline and Newton were running with the 1's and 2's switching back and forth. I wouldn't read anything into that as they have switched them up nearly everyday.

- Good news on injury front as Evans was back at practice in pads, but looked to be held out of contact. Mister Cobble was also back battling in the trenches. Cobble…

Spring Practice Report - Day 3

Well the streak of good weather came to an end as rain blew in and the winds really picked up. The rain was coming in sideways for a portion of practice as the winds were really blowing.

- The Cats put on the pads for the first time and finished practice with a short 20 minute scrimmage.

- Big news of the the day was an injury to DeQuin Evans. Evans tweaked his knee during the scrimmage. He went down, tried to stand back up and went back down. He was able to get…

Spring Practice Report - Day 2

Another wonderful day in the Commonwealth, of course this means it will be 37 and raining for the Spring Game but we'll take it right now. It was also the last day before the pads go on so we shall see if the players are still as excited tomorrow.

- The QB's continued to show good and bad. Mossakowski continues to through the best ball and really does a good job with the curl route, but still has struggled at times.

- Hartline has been the most consistent over…

Spring Practice Report - Practice 1

The Cats were back out on the field in perfect weather to start spring practice 2010. "Operation Win" opened up practice without pads and really only provided us with a "looks" test as to what these guys can do.

- Big news is that linebacker Matt Lentz has given up football due to concussion injuries. Lentz will apply for a medical scholarship and work with the team as a student coach.

- Newton struggled throughout practice. He had a couple of…

UK Football - Decade in Review

UK Football – Decade in Review



Just ten short years ago all the world was preparing for the end. Y2K was almost here and the computer chaos would change the world, if not end it all. For Wildcat football fans the changes seemed to be great. The Cats were preparing for their first trip to the Music City Bowl and their second straight bowl game. Cool Hand Hal and his merry band of gunslingers finally seemed to be just what the doctor ordered... Oh how far we’ve… Continue

"Thumbs Up, Thumbs Down" - Tennessee Edition

Thumbs Up:



Sam Maxwell- He got the stadium rocking with his interception return for a touchdown. Just another big play from the senior linebacker. Has had one of the best season in Wildcats history.



John Conner- Was carrying UT defenders all night long until he went down with an injury. If he stays healthy the Cats win, simple as that.



Monte Kiffin - Forced the UK offense to play the game UT wanted them to play. Make the freshman QB… Continue

"Thumbs Up / Thumbs Down" Georgia Edition

Thumbs Up:



Rich Brooks - What this man has done is truly amazing. If this coming week is his last at Commonwealth Stadium he deserves every accolade you could give him. In September 2005 after falling to Indiana, I wanted him gone. I'll admit I was wrong. He has gone through challenge after challenge and made a success. With all the injuries this season if he wins Saturday he has to be SEC Coach of the Year.



Moncell Allen- Like David Jones kick… Continue

Thumbs Up / Thumbs Down - Vandy Edition

Thumbs Up:



Craig McIntosh/Special Teams- 3 touchbacks for the walk-on who keeps improving. Vandy has one of the SEC's best kick returner and the Cats shut him down with a big foot and good coverage.Bravo Matt Lentz on that hit as well.



Ryan Tydlacka - Can't forget about the punter who also had a career day with a 45.2 yrd average and a long of 58. This gave the Cats a huge field position advantage and really helped the UK… Continue

Thumbs Up / Thumbs Down - EKU Edition

Thumbs Up:





Winning - It wasn't pretty, it wasn't exciting, heck, it was barely entertaining, but it was a victory and that's all that matters.



Morgan Newton - Continues to improve and show why he was so highly rated coming out of high school. Throws his 1st and 2nd career TD pass in route to 187 yard passing day, finishing 20 of 29. To me his best moment came in the 2nd half when he picked up the offsides by EKU and threw deep to the end… Continue
