U2 -- New Year's Day

Classic song from the album "War," especially sweet from the vinyl LP.  Now for news:

Kentucky vs. Louisville News

  • Louisville could be the big victory that UK needs, but since the Cardinals lost last night to UNLV, it will mean a lot less than it might have.

Liberty Bowl News

  • Tony Dixon expects to get more carries in the Liberty Bowl, and that's fine with him.  Kentucky is only two deep in the position with injuries and academic casualties.
  • John Clay has some Memphis barbecue recommendations.
  • The Dead Guy has a preview of the Liberty Bowl.
  • Who will be returning punts for the Wildcats?  I vote for Winston Guy.  I think that kid is going to be special at UK, and he has had a couple of excellent kick returns.
  • Kentucky's receivers hope to make an impact in the Liberty Bowl.  Brooks says they are better.  I sure hope so.
  • Chip Crosby says ECU's defense is plenty good enough for the 'Cats.

NCAA Football News

  • Congratulations to the Vanderbilt Commodores, Music City Bowl Champions of 2008.  I love the SEC beating the ACC.  More cheers for Vandy from the Tennesseean.
  • LSU rolls over the Rambin' Wreck in the Chick-fil-A Bowl.  Another ACC team falls to the SEC.
