The 2010-11 basketball season officially begins Friday as KY plays EAST TENNESSEE STATE. The Bucs made it to the NCAA Tourney last year and were the Atlantic Sun Conference Champions so this first game will not be easy. The Buccaneers ended last season with a 29-point loss to Kentucky in the NCAA Tournament and they will open the 2010-11 season with another loss to the Cats but KY is very young again this year after putting 4 freshmen into the NBA last year.
For the football Cats, their season sort of starts again on Saturday as they take on VANDY. KY's next two games; Vandy - Sat - at 12:21 on the SEC Network and TN on Nov 27th, will determine KY's bowl fate. I think we have a good chance to beat Vandy in Lexington but not so good at beating TN in Knoxville. If we lose both, say goodbye to any kind of bowl.
