Good Sports Weekend For Cat Fans
UK defeated Eastern KY University in football on Saturday 37-12. It took a while for the offense to get on track and they never really dominated EKU (OVC conference) like they should have but we'll take it. Morgan Newton,a true freshman QB, should be the starter the rest of the season instead of the injured junior Mike Hartline who may return for the Vandy game this Saturday at 12:20 on the SEC Network. KY is now 5-4 and needs another win to be bowl eligible. I personally think it will take 7 wins to get them to a bowl which means they have to win two out of the next three. (at Vandy, at Georgia and TN at home.) Meanwhile, KY did dominate Clarion (Calipari's a Clarion alum) in basketball winning 117-52. John Wall - a true freshman - led all scorers with 27 points and 9 assists in their second exhibition game of the season. It feels great to see KY ranked #4 already and seeing what I have seen so far, they could win it all this year if they weren't so young. It will definitely be a fun season and I personally look forward to huge wins over Louisville and Florida.
