Today, I'll be switching my attention back and forth between the Breeder's Cup and the game, but most of the time I'll be with the game (since betting the Breeder's Cup is a total crapshoot, anyway).

Kentucky and Ole Miss are one of three remaining winless SEC teams, with the other being the Tennessee Volunteers, who UK gets in 3 weeks.

What I hope to see today:

  • Competence at quarterback;
  • Competence at receiver;
  • Kentucky scoring some points;
  • A victory, however narrow.

Style points are for winning teams, and Kentucky most definitely is not one of those. I don't care how ugly, all I care about is getting the win. I would love to see Maxwell Smith seize the day and cement himself as the starter, I have no faith in Newton regaining his confidence this year.

Hope springs eternal. Let's get the win.

Go, 'Cats!
