Cats Battle To Last Whistle But Losing Skid Continues Georgia Up Next

(Cal’s Boy’s Have One More Exhibition Game vs. G-town Nov. 9th Then They Start Building NCAA Resume)

For all those folks across the Commonwealth who thought Mark Stoops and his Wildcat football team was set to win their 6th game of the season and become bowl eligible at Columbia , Mo. , well , evidently you haven’t seen the Tigers play or if you have your college football evaluation skills lack some credibility . Missouri was clearly a better football team than UK especially when the UK offense was matched up against the Missouri defense .
Oh yes , that final score of 20 – 10 was no indication at all of how Missouri was clearly in the driver’s seat from early in the 2nd quarter to the final horn .
Although I’ll be the first to admit Stoops is spiking the Wildcat Gatorade with some type of unique potion because this team continues to show some serious no quit attitude and a solid mindset that if there is time on the clock there is no quit in the heart . This may seem trivial to some UK football fans but it is how foundations are laid for future success and W’s . However , until this young team grows some more both (physically & fundamentally) it will come up short in the win column just like it has the last two weekends and it will continue to fight thru some aggravating growing pains on the road the remainder of this season .
Maybe they can squeeze out that 6th win maybe they won’t . The only bet I would lay down is that these Wildcat gridiron warriors won’t quit , their coach won’t let them and the foundation for future success is definitely being laid .

Wildcats Take On Georgia “Bulldogs” For Annual Sr. Day Festivities And Home Finale

Two things won’t happen this coming (sat) when UK host the Georgia “Bulldogs” ( 12:00 Noon – ESPN ) for the annual Senior Day festivities and final home game that usually happens .
You won’t here “Rocky Top” played by the Georgia band (UT is no longer the last game home or away of the season) and take a long look and maybe some photos of the Commonwealth Stadium skyline/structure because it will never be the same . When you arrive next September for the 2015 season opener against Louisiana Lafayette CWS will be a new completely modernized college football venue , a renovation to the tune of 110 million dollars .
The game itself against the “Bulldogs” is kind of a good news bad news situation . First the good news the “Bulldogs” stud running back Todd Gurley will set out the UK game for his final penalty administered by NCAA for rules violations . The bad news all the “Bulldogs” will be at fever pitch emotionally and physically since Florida laid a pretty good whuppin on them last Saturday and knocked them out of 1st place in the SEC east .
