It was not a good weekend for Kentucky Soccer

clas·sic

adjective \ˈkla-sik\

—used to say that something has come to be considered one of the best of its kind

—used to say that something is an example of excellence

—used to describe something that has been popular for a long time

Kentucky Men's Soccer played in the Gamecock Classic in always-classy Columbia, South Carolina this past weekend. The results were anything but excellent, however. First, wrap your head around the idea that something called a classic that doesn't have to do with golf is being played in South Carolina in light of what the word "classic" means. It's soccer in South Carolina. It's categorically impossible for those two words to exist in the same sentence as the word "classic". Kind of like "level-headed", "Louisville Football Fan" and "2013".

Anyway, Kentucky lost 2-1 to Dartmouth on Friday, and 3-0 to South Florida yesterday. No need to recap the carnage, really, other than to say that it perturbed me that the five goals conceded by the Cats over the weekend came on like seven shots. That's a ridiculously high conversion rate. Coach Johan Cedergren seemed oddly upbeat about the team's performance on the weekend, and make no mistake, Dartmouth and USF aren't bad teams. But, given that conference play begins this weekend, it wasn't the ideal trip to the land of Jimmy Buffett cover singers and assholes in maroon football jerseys. Kentucky falls to 2-4-0 on the year.
