The Cats find another regular season foe right here in the state
Western Kentucky, this year playing its first season as a member of the nation's major football division is going to play four staight against the Cats. The games away from Commonwealth will be in the TennesseeTitans' stadium in Nashville.
This series appears to be filing one of the Cat's non conference openings and giving them another annual game against their second in state foe. The annual Governor's Cup game being against the Louisville Cardinals.
I have no problem with Kentucky adding the games against the Hilltoppers, but doesn't it serve a two fold purpose? WKU is rated one of the teams in the bottom five in what was one considered Division One. This year the Cats have Louisiana-Monroe and Miami of Ohio, both rated above 100 in the 120 teams ranked in that division.
I know Florida plays teams with a less than stellar ranking. So does Alabama. I don't think they play three though to get to bowl eligiblity. Florida plays Florida State every year and often adds Miami of Florida and Alabama is becoming a regualar at playing in the early game in Atlanta. Last year against Clemson and this year against Virginia Tech. I understand we're not a Florida or Alabama but we are a member of what is known as the top football conference in the country.
Wouldn't it be nice to see the Cats take that next step and venture again into the Big Ten or the ACC to play a team over which a win would give them something to boost about?
We've proven we can get to six wins and only have to win two in the conference to get there. Hopefully we will win more this year and get out of Tennessee during the holidays.
Just my opiniion. Let's hear yours.
