Records as of 10/11 along with some tidbits.

@ Mississippi State: 3-2. Will probably be 4-2 when they play UK. This game being @ 4:00pm EST is much better than a night game in StarkVegas.

VS. Tennessee: 3-2. They will probably be on three game loosing streak when they come to Kroger Field. They leave Lexington 3-5 and UK sends Mr. Buzzcut back to teaching P.E. for Beavis & Butt-Head.

VS. Ole Miss: 2-3. Have to play three straight SEC teams before they come to the Bluegrass. UK adds another win to this historic season.

@ Vanderbilt: 3-3. Three straight L's for Vandy. They might get two wins between now and the UK game. But, UK doesn't usually play well in Nashville. That changes this year.

@ Georgia: 6-0. The Dawgs are looking tough. Let's all hope they drop a game between now and then so this game in Athens is for the SEC East championship. @ Auburn the week before & @ Georgia Tech the week after, both are big rivalry games. UK could be a trap game.

VS. Louisville: 4-2. The Cards are Lamar and a bunch of dudes. We are a better team than what we were last year & they aren't as good as they were last year. UK gives Bobby Petrino another L before he leaves for Knoxville.

Wouldn't be surprised if Ole Miss and Vandy are the only wins we get. I just can't trust our coaches to win us ball games anymore in tough games.

1-0

Sept. 9th vs. Eastern Kentucky Univ.
The Colonels almost stole a big W two years ago in CWS. I see a more focused and talented UK team taking care of business early.
2-0

Sept. 16th @ South Carolina
UK has beat the Gamecocks three years in a row. This will more than likely be a night game in Columbia. It will also be the first road SEC game for several players. I'm still going with the Cats. South Carolina will play on the road @ Missouri the week before for the Columbia Cup trophy. UK has two games to figure some things out. South Carolina has two tough games to open the season.
3-0

Sept. 23rd vs. Florida
THIS IS THE YEAR........ THE 30 LOSING YEAR STREAK ENDS!!!!!!!
Florida plays Tennessee the week before, UK (should) come in to this game 3-0 and a fan base than feels like this is finally the year. Our talent is as close to Florida's as it's ever been during this dreadful streak. UK cuts the head off the Gator and shows the SEC we really can win the East.
4-0

Sept. 30th vs. Eastern Michigan
UK is riding high after finally beating the Gators. After a big play or two early in the game, UK takes care of business in the 3rd qtr.
5-0

Oct. 7th vs. Missouri
Missouri will come in to this game after playing a tough Auburn team and will have to go to Georgia the following week. UK makes it three in a row vs. Missouri and is undefeated in SEC play.
6-0


Oct. 14th is the OPEN Week..... and in theory, it sets up perfect. Six games down, hopefully eight more to go.


Oct. 21st @ Mississippi State
UK kicked a field goal last year to get the 40-38 win in CWS. This could be a game UK has a stinker game. On the road after the Open week and having to play Tennessee next Saturday.... all of these could add up and see UK loose their first game of the season. This is a very winnable game, UK just has to take care of business.
6-1 or 7-0

Oct. 28th vs. Tennessee
The Vols make the trip north. It seemed like Tennessee was imploding last season before UK played them. But Dobbs ran all over the place on us. The Saturday night before Halloween could see that ugly pumpkin color orange get smeared all over the field at CWS.
7-1 or 8-0

Nov. 4th vs. Ole Miss
Ole Miss is a program that is on the 'ropes.' Being a UK fan and wanting to see UK have the best season of my lifetime, I'm gonna give the nod to UK only because this game is at CWS.
8-1 or 9-0

Nov. 11th @ Vanderbilt
UK has to beat the Dores.... for UK to be a legit SEC team, they have to beat Vandy on a regular basis. Last time in Nashville, UK played like a terrible NAIA team. I see the Cats getting a big W.
9-1 or 10-0

Nov. 18th @ Georgia
The Dawgs committed highway robbery last in CWS. Their nerdy looking kicker and a few costly turnovers saw the Dawgs leave Lexington with a W. Georgia plays on the road @ Auburn the week before and they play in a major rivalry game @ Georgia Tech the week after. UK wins this game and they win the SEC East for the first time and go to their first ever SEC championship game. Let's hope Georgia overlooks us.
10-1 or 11-0

Nov. 25th vs. Louisville
Since Petrino wouldn't let any media record their Spring game, we really don't know what they have. Lamar's fumble late in the 4th qtr. gave UK a major Win last year and has boosted UK's program. UK sends the Heisman winner out with an L in his last time in CWS and sees UK go to the SEC Championship game.
11-1 or 12-0



That's right.... I have UK going 11-1 or 12-0. This is MY predictions, if you don't like it... do your own list. This is the best Talent and Depth UK has had on their roster, maybe ever. Players who would have started five seasons ago and we would have been pumped over is now on the scout team or getting 3rd team reps. Our schedule isn't easy, but we don't have Alabama, Arkansas, Auburn, LSU or Texas A&M this year.

Then again, I could be totally wrong. UK could go 3-9 or worse. However, I don't see it. The coaching staff is better, the talent and depth is finally close to mid-level SEC schools and our schedule sets up for a historic and program changing (for the better) season. For the first time our Cats could (and should) be in the Playoff rankings. We may not make the playoffs, but we will be looking at a premier New Years Day bowl or better.



UNIVERSITY OF KENTUCKY
2017 SEC EAST CHAMPIONS
Southern Miss:

EKU:

South Carolina:

Florida:

EMU:

Missouri:

Miss. St.


UK is setting at 5-2 after their worst performance since playing @ Florida last year. Miss. St. beat us in every aspect of the game, this one was never close.

Tennessee comes to town next Saturday. Butch Jones may or may not be the coach when the Vols come to Lexington. UK can beat Tennessee, Tennessee is a straight dumpster fire. They've lost three straight games to SEC teams and are 3-4 overall. Kentucky can all but end Tennessee's bowl hopes for this season and send Butch Jones to the unemployment line all on the same time.

If we don't play better than what we did against Miss. St., we'll be lucky to get 6 wins, but I still see this team being 9-3 or 8-4.
