NCAA Football: Tennessee at Georgia Dale Zanine-USA TODAY Sports

Good morning to all of you wonderful Kentucky Wildcats football fans. It’s a bit chilly to start this Saturday but things are going to heat up in Knoxville here in a few hours as the Cats are set to take on the Tennessee Volunteers.

It’s been 36 years since Kentucky won there despite being in some very close contests. Seem how, some way the Cats always seem to find a way to lose even when they have a comparable or even better team.

Kentucky fans are feeling pretty good about their team, the defense especially, and believe that their football team is fairly even with the Vols.

I for one am picking Kentucky to win this game because I believe if they do not, the season outlook is not good for the rest of the year.

In fact I am so confident that I said on air that I would eat two spoonfuls of cat food if Kentucky loses today. There’s a fine line between brave and stupid. I’m not sure what side of the line I’m on as I will leave that up to you to decide.
