Blood on the Bluegrass: Kentucky versus Louisville

The running joke all week was that in the annual Governor’s Cup showdown between UK and the University of Louisville that the winner would be the last team who had the ball, because neither team could tackle a big meal, let alone a college football player. On one hand, you have Louisville, who gave up a ton of points to MTSU. On the other side, you have Kentucky who let Kent State rush for 350 yards.

Suffice it to say, the winner wasn’t the last team to have the football. No, the winner was the last team to score with the football. And that team, breaking several losing streaks, was the University of Kentucky, because of the legs of tailback monster Rafael Little and the arm of Andre Woodson.

First victory over Louisville since 2002? Check. First victory over a top 10 team since downing Penn State in 1977? Check. Awesome game that had everyone on the edge of their seat? Check plus.

The only drawback was a questionable call by Louisville coach Steve Kragthorpe, who went for a touchdown on 4th and 6, rather than taking the field goal and the guaranteed points that came back to haunt Louisville in the end. Back and forth, big rushes from Little and great play from Heisman candidate QB Woodson, big throws from Brian Brohm to Harry Dixon (13 catches for 225 yards, usually in the middle of a soft Kentucky zone designed to prevent big plays).

It’s not a shameful loss for Louisville, but it’s bad. Their incredibly soft defense is going to come back to haunt them in the underrated Big East, especially when they head to Morgantown to take on the quadruple-threat rushing attack of Pat White, Steve Slaton, Noel Devine, and Owen “600lb Vanilla Gorilla” Schmidt. It’s going to be rough this year on the Cardinals and their too-skinny defense.

As for the Cats? Highlight of the year, and the win that puts them in a crappy bowl game (which, for the worst team in the SEC, is pretty good considering they probably won’t win more than 3 conference games).

And this is what's scary. They're only 4th in the SEC East because they've not played a game against the SEC. The top teams in the East, South Carolina and Florida.

Think about that irony for a little while.

Well, consider the fact that Vandy is in the SEC East, and Miss. State is in the SEC West. They also go to Fayetteville for Arkansas, Columbia for South Carolina, Nashville for Vandy, and Athens for Georgia.

Their home games left this year are Florida Atlantic, LSU, Florida, Miss. State, and Tennessee. They've got to beat Vandy on the road and FAU/State at home. That said, I'm way impressed with Spurrier's SC team.

Worst team in the SEC? Try one of the best. Only behind LSU right now.

You'll all be eating your words if you think this UK team is a fluke.

No crappy bowl game now....we're talking BCS and a top ten ranking.

I'm a believer, Drew. And I'll give you this thought. They get a good one on Florida, and they could be the top of the SEC heap.
