Big Blue Nation Linkapalooza: Georgia/Penn St. Edition

Tomorrow, we have a weird confluence of events we have never had before at A Sea of Blue that I can recall -- a football and basketball game taking place at virtually the same time.  How will we cover it?  Will there be two open threads?  I don't know just yet, but we'll come up with something.  Look at it this way -- it beats August when there is nothing happening.

There is a ton happening in the sports world today, and this morning's Linkapalooza will be taking you all over the place.

  • Georgia and Kentucky a rival? David Ching notes how competitive the 'Cats have been versus the Dawgs.

    2009 -- The last time Kentucky visited Athens, the 10-point underdog Wildcats' 34-27 comeback victory produced one of the ugliest defeats in Richt's tenure. The Bulldogs led 20-6 at halftime and seemed well on their way to an easy win, but Branden Smith fumbled the second-half kickoff and Kentucky recovered at the Georgia 14-yard line, setting up a quick touchdown. It was the first of Georgia's four turnovers in the second half, which included one by Ealey at Kentucky's 1-yard line.
  • The loss of Randall Cobb cannot be overestimated.

    While Randall Cobb returns punts for the Green Bay Packers, including one for an 80-yard touchdown on 'Monday Night Football,' his alma mater counts itself lucky to get 5 yards. The University of Kentucky doesn’t have the worst punt-return unit in the nation — but it does rank at 116th of 120 FBS schools at 2 yards per return.
