Good morning BBN.

With the SEC likely moving to a nine-game conference schedule, that’s putting many rivalries within the south in danger.

Among them would be the Kentucky Wildcats’ in-state rivalry with the Louisville Cardinals, a series that’s seen UK dominate recently. Mark Stoops’ bunch has won four of five in this series, the last three being by 46, 32 and 21 points respectively.

So yeah, if this rivalry does end, congrats to UofL on one less likely embarrassment for them per year.

What are your thoughts on the rivalry potentially ending?
