Good morning and happy Saturday, BBN. The Kentucky Wildcats are featured on the CBS SEC Game of the Week but unfortunately the opponent is the Georgia Bulldogs. Many thought that this game would have a lot at stake for the Cats this season but with losses to South Carolina and Vanderbilt, the expectations have been lowered along with fan morale.
The emphasis on this game should be health heading into the Governor’s Cup next Saturday. Other than that, there’s not too much on the line here. I think the fates of some of the staff were decided last week with that stunning and embarrassing loss.
I do think the players come out motivated and ready to play. But I have heard that Lexington has been flooded with Bulldog red so I fear a sparse crowd with plenty of Georgia faithful in attendance.
I don’t know, folks. I’m about out of steam with this team. So many preseason expectations and so many letdowns. My hope is the team comes out healthy and motivated for a win against the Cards.
