The Athletic projects Kentucky’s SEC record

Is this the year the Cats finish with a winning SEC record? This spring’s departure of veteran quarterback Stephen Johnson certainly decreased hopes for the 2018 University of Kentucky Football season. However, with a stronger Benny Snell, bolstered offensive line, return of CJ Conrad and a defense full of high-flying, hard-hitting veterans, it’s hard to see them taking a dip if not posting a better record. The Athletic’s Stewart Mandel, though, wrote in his 2018 SEC Football Predictions that he has Kentucky going 4-4 in the conference and 7-5 overall. It’s easy to point out that...

ESPN analyst takes a glance at UK vs. Duke matchup

ESPN analyst takes a glance at UK vs. Duke matchup

ESPN’s Paul Biancardi went the distance discussing Kentucky’s game with Duke in Chicago this fall. It’s been three years since the Kentucky Wildcats took the floor with the Duke Blue Devils. In fact, four years ago was the last “platoon” team in which Kentucky went 38-0 and lost a nail-biter to Wisconsin in the Final Four. Many believed, and still do, that Kentucky would have wiped the floor with the Blue Devils in the championship game. After both schools watched major departures of key players, Kentucky won the head-to-head matchup in the fall of 2015. Tyler Ulis lead the way...

Friday Quickies: Dogs Edition

John Calipari likes what he sees from P.J. Washington and Keldon Johnson The old adage is that to win in basketball, you need a couple dogs. John Calipari thinks he has that on this year’s squad, and two of them would appear to be Keldon Johnson and P.J. Washington. Washington and Johnson shown in the Bahamas how important they can be to this team, as both guys displayed a lot of versatility, energy, and the ability to dunk on opponents. Keldon Johnson might kill somebody this year. pic.twitter.com/Bfc2qlOmJ5— Not Jerry Tipton (@NotJerryTipton) August 16, 2018 PJ Washington...

Kentucky Basketball: 5 things the Wildcats still need to improve on

The Bahamas trip was a success, but there’s still room to grow. The Kentucky Wildcats were dominant in their international wins on the Big Blue Bahamas tour, and they really didn’t show many weaknesses. But as John Calipari said many times over the last week, it’s just a starting point (albeit a really, really good starting point). There are still ways for the Wildcats to improve. Here are four of them. Fewer turnovers from the bigs PJ Washington and Reid Travis were both pretty impressive, especially with Travis coming on strong in game four. But the two turned the ball over way...

Kentucky’s Defense Poised for Breakout Season

Kentucky’s Defense Poised for Breakout Season

Last year, Kentucky had the 8th best SEC defense. This year, they’re set up to be much better. After losing senior quarterback Stephen Johnson last year, the Kentucky Wildcats will look to a stout run game and smash mouth defense in winning football games this fall. After Benny Snell and a high quality offensive line, the defense is full of veteran players who know the expectations of Mark Stoops. Specifically, players like Darius West, Derrick Baity, Jordan Jones, Josh Allen, Lonnie Johnson and Mike Edwards are all poised to lead the way for the Cats. After Thursday’s practice, Johnson...

Jalen Lecque lists top 7 and UK misses cut

Kentucky is no longer in the race for one of the most athletic guards in the class of 2019. Five-star combo guard Jalen Lecque has cut his list to seven, and the Kentucky Wildcats did not make the cut.

Are we Seeing the Second Coming of the Platoon?

Kentucky is loaded to the point John Calipari will have to at least consider bringing back platoons. Four years ago, the Kentucky Wildcats made a trip to the Bahamas to play a series of exhibition games. Their roster was highlighted by returning sophomores Aaron and Andrew Harrison, returning juniors Alex Poythress and Willie Cauley Stein as well as a bundle of highly talented freshman. In 2018, Kentucky made the same trip back to the Bahamas before the fall semester is set to begin. After going 4-0 in an impressive manner against older teams, it’s hard to not wonder (with this kind of...

Scott County OL Bryan Hudson talks about decision to choose Virginia Tech

Hudson said he felt like Kentucky was “more of a basketball school” Bryan Hudson, the highly-touted offensive lineman from Scott County High School, just 20 miles from the University of Kentucky, chose to play football at Virginia Tech over a wide array of offers, including from the Kentucky Wildcats. He recently talked with Larry Vaught about why he chose the Hokies over the Wildcats. While he liked what Kentucky had to offer, he ultimately felt like the focus of the school was too basketball focused, whereas Virginia Tech is heavily focused on football. “I wanted to be play at a...
