Saturday Headlines: Kentucky Football and Kentucky Basketball double-header day

The Cats tip off and kick off at noon today.

NCAA Basketball: Kentucky at Missouri Jay Biggerstaff-USA TODAY Sports

The Kentucky Wildcats are set to play two games at the same time today. The football Cats are in Nashville to take on the Iowa Hawkeyes for the second consecutive season in the Music City Bowl and the basketball Cats are staying home in Rupp Arena to take on the Louisville Cardinals.

I feel more confident in the basketball team coming away with a victory than the football team but I don’t think the football team should be counted out by any stretch. While Iowa is a better opponent than the Cards, the Hawkeyes are in a similar situation as the Cats as they are missing major components to their team.

Fans are in a conundrum as to which team gets their full attention at game time. I’ll be focusing mostly on the basketball game but I will have football on another TV.

Will this be the basketball game that gets the Cats on track? Can the football team win a fifth straight bowl game?

All questions will be answered at about 3:00 PM today.

Tweets of the Day


Kentucky still in trial and error mode | Cats Pause- Two months in and still in trial and error mode. Not acceptable.

Kentucky vs. Iowa by the numbers | Cats Illustrated- Avert your eyes if you are a fan of offense.

Five things Calipari said about the Louisville | KSR- Calipari was being as nice as possible to his friend Kenny Payne. Hopefully he isn’t nice to him on the court.

Putting Calipari on the hotseat | SDS- You can put John Calipari on the hot seat all day long. It won’t change that contract.

JJ Weaver finally gets to play in a bowl game | Vaught’s Views- Happy for Weaver but wish he would have been able to play in last year’s game for that experience. Hoping he is playing in next year’s bowl game too.

Cats vs. Cards preview | Card Chronicle- The Louisville perspective is...bleak.

Cats vs. Hawkeyes preview | Black Heart, Gold Pants- Feels like we just covered this game.

5 Reasons why you should watch the Cats take on the Cards | WDRB- The Cats haven’t tipped off against the Cards in two seasons due to Mack being a weasel last season so that’s enough of a reason to me.

Why Will Levis isn’t playing in the Music City Bowl | Sporting News- I don’t blame Levis at all for sitting this one out. It would be different if this were another Citrus Bowl or something similar.

Best bets for the College Football Playoffs | CBS- Really looking forward to these games this evening. Just hoping they’re actually entertaining to watch.

Legendary broadcaster, Barbara Walters, dead at 93 | CNN- Walters had been a staple in American journalism for decades and was known for her no BS, straightforward interviewing style. She broke barriers for female TV broadcasters around the world and she stormed through an industry driven by men.

Pope Benedict XVI dead at 95 | CBS- He was the first Pope to resign his position since 1415. He was known as the intellectual Pope and finished his retirement in Vatican City by doing what he loved: writing and praying.

Obviously change the word “tomorrow” to “today” and we are in business before and after the game.
