Pretty cool idea from my alma mater.
Looks like fun to me.
Nobody flaunts it like Calipari.
From what I can see, UK understands that they are going to have to buckle down and play football to get past the Hilltoppers.
In MKG we trust.
Anytime you see college described as a "waste of time" for a player, you know that UK is a real possibility.
Former Big East commissioner Mike Tranghese said that the departure of Notre Dame basketball to the ACC is "more of a perception hit than anything. It has no effect on Big East football."
He's right, although unfortunately, Notre Dame's name alone affects a lot of perceptions.
The thing that makes this game potentially different is the offense. Kentucky has one this year, unlike 2011.
