Kentucky Wildcats: Morning Quickies - Randall Cobb and Tim Masthay Edition

Morning Quickies

[Editor's Note: The Quickies will go up every morning early from now on to provide a place for users to put links they find. Also, treat all news updates, including the quickies, as an open thread, and we'll try to keep the topical articles free of unrelated links. I will be adding to the post during the day, so check back often.]

Last night, the former Kentucky Wildcats receiver Randall Cobb and former UK punter Tim Masthay helped the Green Bay Packers put away the Chicago bears. Here's to former Wildcats making us proud.

The Tweet of the Morning happened last night:

From what I can see, UK understands that they are going to have to buckle down and play football to get past the Hilltoppers.

3-point shot: Big East-ND ripple effect // ESPN

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.

Western Kentucky not sneaking up on UK after close loss in 2011 season opener // KyForward.com

The thing that makes this game potentially different is the offense. Kentucky has one this year, unlike 2011.

A loss to directional school WKU would practically doom Phillips, and everyone in Commonwealth Stadium knows it.

Western thinks they can win this one. Maybe they are right, but I don't think so.


Turnover-prone WKU might be just what Kentucky needs // Kentucky.com

Well, Kentucky wasn't exactly turnover-free in its first two games. If Kentucky plays defense for once, I think they have a good shot to win convincingly. Otherwise, it's game on.
