    The LSU transfer was a Covid scratch today. We also had 5 other players out as well. Gutty damn win!! We also have a good WR from VT coming from the portal to help us out.

    You guys are getting good. Question though. Why don't you guys demand a better OOC schedule. Every year, you have arguably the weakest OOC schedule in the conference. Usually an average Louisville, weak MAC schools and an FCS. Wouldn't you love to get a home/home with a decent OOC? We open with defending PAC 12 champion Utah, uGA gets Oregon, UT will play at defending ACC champ Pitt. I think your admin should step up and get you guys some better OOC games. If I were a season ticket holder, not sure I'd want to see only 2-3 exciting opponents a year. You fans and Stoops deserve it.

    Im ok with our schedule. I’m not hunting an ass beating, the SEC does that to us enough. Now if you were talking basketball Is be in 100% agreement.

    Really? Today’s game was so exciting. You wouldn’t prefer an Iowa coming to Commonwealth as opposed to a Youngstown State?

    You bring up some good points. In my lifetime we have never really had a sustained football program that could have a decent season with a tough OOC game on top of the SEC slate.

    Also we are not a national name to promote a marquee OOC game. I’m sure the SEC media will pick us 4th or 5th in the East again.

    I saw the Iowa players at Fun Spot on Thursday. Today, they went to a No-Fun Spot. Go SEC!

    That’s why I don’t get why people are poopoo’ing the portal. Alabama’s Jameson Williams is projected as a top 10 pick. Portal.

    He might be realistic, and enjoy job stability in a program that has lower expectations.

    Calipari is an elite recruiter. Floor coach and game manager, not so much.

    I'm 100% with you about the SEC love fest. I can understand it if you have friends and family that went there but the way I see it is it draws away recruits. Go ahead and root for Alabama and the lot of them and remember that when the Gators get beat. They can't lose enough.
