    Ok so the mods will probably ban me for several reason with this thread but...…………

    So I am coming out of the closet and admitting to being a bit of a KY Wildcat Football fan. (Yes Mods I know this is a BB forum BUT
    I don't know of any Wildcat fans on Rays Swamp Gas).

    So I was watching coach Stoops yesterday on the SEC network (Media Days) and I really enjoyed his presentation. He's a good guy, I like him. I like Derek Mason too, always enjoy his talks.

    With the exception of the whippin KY put on UF I enjoyed watching the cats play.

    So, looking at the schedule it looks like you should be positioned to have another good year.

    Now I still expect UF to administer some serious payback in Lexington this year, just to affirm my loyalty.

    Thoughts?

    Well, while we're coming clean about UK fandom...

    I was a UK basketball fan from birth until about age 14. My grandfather was from Cincinnati and a huge UK fan. My dad went to UF but only cared about football, not basketball. The only time I ever remember watching gator bball was the 94 final four. So I grew up a gator football and UK basketball fan. Then went to UF and fell in love with the basketball team

    I dont think I've ever shared it on this board before. Gonna go shower.

    I wouldn't have called myself a Kentucky fan but I did root for them during the pitino years. They were fun to watch and Florida didn't give us a whole lot to cheer for in march until 94.

    I was a Kansas fan having lived there as a kid for a short time and remembering that Danny manning team but that all faded when Florida established themselves and Roy Williams came out as the douchenozzle scumbag that he is...

    I like the thread but I guess I would like this type of thread!

    I think the football schedule is laid out favorably but have tempered confidence given the amount of talent UK lost. It was a record setting year for UK's representation at the NFL draft (by UK standards) and its hard to overestimate the impact Josh Allen and Benny Snell had on last year's team. Not having them is a game changer. I'm surprised to see, if I'm not mistaken, some outlets predicting 5.5 wins though. Seems like that'd be a really disappointing season given the talent still left.

    I certainly don't expect another 9-10 win season but I am confident they'll be a fun team to watch. Lynn Bowden is one of the most exciting players in the SEC IMO.

    While I've always seen how legitimately dis-likable UK basketball can be, I have the opposite view of the football program. Hard to see them being easy to hate.

    I like Stoops too and appreciate hearing your/any other perspectives about him. I think its a matter of time before he leaves for a bigger name program but I'm enjoying what he's built while it lasts!

    REM -
    I think Stoops is underappreciated with his talent evaluation. I think it's fair to say KY has to be a bit more disciplined in it's approach to recruiting players that fit into their system.

    Stoops clearly has done a great job recruiting for his system and getting players to buy in.

    He's a helluva defensive mind and I think the Cats game against UF last year was a good example of that. I was shocked at how much size and physicality (especially the defensive line) they had last year.

    I think KY will win at least 8 games this year and may even improve on that.

    My hat is off to coach Stoops for doing a good job with the program.

    I want to go to Lexington to catch a game, possibly this year when the Gators come calling. I like the stadium and would love to have a friendly mix up with the fans pre game.

    Well, I used to be a UK BB fan having taught there and known Goose Givens and Rick Robey. Never thought much about the football team until the 90's when I visited Ky again.Lived in Versailes and enjoyed it. Eastern Ky is beautiful. Learned to rock climb there. Kind of an intellectual wasteland, but the Derby is fun as a Ky Colonel.

    I would like to see UK beat uga and slUT, their West games, and non-conf games, but that's about it.

    Oh Yeah, I remember Givens and Robey.
    The Indiana / KY game was a thing of beauty!

    KY derailed the IU team that year and I think IU went undefeated the following year?

    Annually, I too am a UK football “fan”** for most every game they play. Only exception is vs UF.

    (**fan might be an exaggeration, but there’s a rooting interest).

    Two good things:
    1. you developed a love of college hoops early.
    2. That love transferred to UF.
