    There aren’t but a handful of PWO’s, most are just regular walkons.

    Petrino cannot get quality coaches to work under him, recruiting and coaching up players has been awful. There will be a change as soon as the season is over.

    I’ll take your word for it, but y’all lose a lot after this year.

    Yeah, which means they'll be younger than Louisville. Laughing

    The majority of the starting O, D, and ST will be gone.

    Y’all lose 6 offensive starters and 7 defensive starters, Louisville loses 3 and 1. Your teams production is upper class driven, our is anything but. I’m not saying we’re going to be good next year, but we need a coach that can properly manage a roster.

    if it were not for that pesky 14 million dollars Petrino would already be gone

    we have quality depth, if that continues i think we field competitive teams for the foreseeable future

    Kentucky needs some coaches that can properly manage an offense.

    Yeah, you guys need to take advantage of Snell and Allen, they are both great players. I like the defense that y’all play, your offense is very bad though.

    75% offensive coordinator, 20% Wilson, 5% receivers and O-line.

    I know that you won’t agree, but your offensive line isn’t as strong as everyone talks about. Benny makes them look better than they are.

    not a fan of Gran's play calling (it is just bad)
    but on the flip side he is a good recruiter

    Y’all definitely need Benny and Allen to stay healthy. You won’t even need them against us, our team has quit on the coaches...and I don’t blame them.

    No, they suck against the pass rush.

    I was gonna say who gives a shit about the cards' roster...the CATS are going to pummel them anyway, but it seems you have come to terms with that.

    I'm confident we win, but unless our offense suddenly gets a pulse, we aren't going to pummel anyone

    I'm only as old as I feel, Blockhead.... and feeling pretty good today with a 7-1 football team and a basketball team that is once again a contender for the title.

    Having said that, I can see why you're all butthurt.

    I still don’t think Kentucky is better than Duke. Kentucky isn’t an impressive team, that’s why they won’t be able to compete in a bowl game with some team with a similar record. We had two opening day starters available on defense last night, don’t even think that your offense has finally arrived. Wilson didn’t have to worry at all about a pass rush at all. Wake forest was just as impressive, Georgia Tech was more impressive. Y’all aren’t as good as your record indicates, but it’s been 41 years since you’v won nine games that you don’t know how to act. Lol

    Duke just lost at home to Wake fuggin' Forest 59-7....Not Bama, not Clemson, WAKE FOREST. Even Louisville kept it 31 points closer than that, and we know how bad Louisville is.

    Kansas has the only Head Coach with a national title on his resume.

    It truly is a blessing to be a fan of a school where the best coaches in the world want to be.

    Couldn’t have been worse timing in the year for him to make that post.

    And it’s not like I posted that my basketball team could produce two top five teams, and then get bitch slapped in the first game by 34.

    If not for UT playing out of their minds against Auburn and UK, UK finishes in the Top 10, and gets a New Years bowl.

    My favorite part, all the UL and Nebraska efforts to flip Wandale Robinson probably died last night with you all making our offense look like the Green Bay Packers.

    It was UK playing like ass much more than UT playing well. UT is a bad team, period. I thought Louisville made UK's offense look more like the Saints.

    UT isn’t a good team, but they do have a very talented roster that’s capable of playing well, and they did that night. People forget that as big of a cornball as he was, Butch was a good recruiter.

    UK didn’t play good, but that game was over by halftime because Guarantano was throwing 20 yard passes on a rope, and it energized their defense. The Hail Mary was a different story for another day, but still.

    Nonetheless, they scored more points in a half against one of the best scoring defenses in the country than they put up in 5 of their 12 games all season. It was an anomaly, but they aren’t exactly FCS level talent.

    Meh, I'm not one to make excuses. Bottom line is we are talking about a 5-7 football team.

    Doubtful. He'll likely point out their only two wins, against Indiana State and WKU. :D
