Jason Marcum - Sea of Blue See where UK stands in the Week 6 top 25 polls and power rankings as they’re released.

Is Devin Booker a top-5 guard in the NBA?

Is Devin Booker a top-5 guard in the NBA?

Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports Booker is on the verge of being included but still sits outside the top five. The Kentucky Wildcats have consistently produced stars at the highest level in basketball, and Devin Booker is another example of a player that has erupted onto the scene since his time in Lexington. Booker was drafted by the Phoenix Suns in the 2015 NBA Draft. The 25-year-old was the second-to-last lottery pick, denoting that 12 players were taken before the star guard. Booker has made a lot of teams envious. The three-time All-Star guard averaged 26.8...

Why Aaron Judge’s historic homer chase is worth interrupting football broadcasts

Why Aaron Judge’s historic homer chase is worth interrupting football broadcasts

Nick Turchiaro-USA TODAY Sports What he’s got a chance to do is pretty big in the sports world. Lots of people have seen Yankees outfielder Aaron Judge batting at the plate this week, even people who had never watched a single inning of baseball their entire lives this weekend. In fact, everyone watching something on ESPN while he’s been batting has seen him swinging on the screen even when it’s not Sunday Night Baseball. Why are channels treating Aaron Judge’s at-bats like it’s a broadcast of Neil Armstrong walking on the moon? Because if in one of those he...

Mark Stoops and players recap loss to Ole Miss

Mark Stoops and players recap loss to Ole Miss

Petre Thomas-USA TODAY Sports Kentucky beats themselves in loss to Ole Miss. The Kentucky Wildcats lose an absolutely heartbreaking game down in Oxford to the Ole Miss Rebels, 22-19. Kentucky in this one made mistake after mistake after mistake after mistake in this one and simply could not get out of their own way. The special teams unit left five points on the field due to two missed/blocked extra points and kicker Matt Ruffalo missed a 39-yarder early in the game. The most painful of all, however, were the final two drives. Will Levis was hit hard in the air after...

Should targeting have been called on Will Levis fumble?

Should targeting have been called on Will Levis fumble?

Photo by Justin Ford/ Could have been a game-changer. Will Levis had two late opportunities to potentially tie or take the lead for the Kentucky Wildcats on Saturday against Ole Miss, but both possessions ended with turnovers. For the second fumble, it should have never happened. Levis needed to wait until Brown gets set before making that throw to Key, you saw Mark Stoops saying the same thing to him on the broadcast. But it is the first fumble, that will have Kentucky fans wondering; should targeting have been called? Here is an explainer from Sporting News on what...

Box score and MVP from Kentucky vs. Ole Miss

Box score and MVP from Kentucky vs. Ole Miss

Petre Thomas-USA TODAY Sports Too many mistakes cost Kentucky on Saturday. Kentucky’s road matchup with Ole Miss was one of the most hyped up college football games of the weekend, and it certainly lived up to the hype, just not in Kentucky’s favor. The No. 7 Wildcats fell to the No. 14 Rebels, 22-19. Kentucky suffered the loss on Saturday but had more than enough chances to change the outcome. Instead of capitalizing, several miscues on special teams and three turnovers by Will Levis were enough to tip the scales in favor of Ole Miss. The Wildcats lost confidence...

Twitter reactions to Kentucky’s heartbreaking loss to Ole Miss

Photo by Justin Ford/ Kentucky made too many mistakes to win on the road. The Kentucky Wildcats made their second road trip of the season as they were looking to get a big SEC win over the Ole Miss Rebels. It was not a great start for the Cats as the Rebels took their 2nd possession 65-yards in 6-plays to take a 7-0 lead. Kentucky’s offense was looking to answer and put together a solid drive. However, the 39-yard field goal was missed. 6 plays later, Ole Miss was standing in the end zone once again and holding onto a 14-0 lead. After a big return by Barion Brown,...

Kentucky falls in Oxford: 4 things to know and postgame banter

Photo by Justin Ford/ What a gut-punch. The Kentucky Wildcats made the trip down to Oxford, and left with a loss to the Ole Miss Rebels, 22-19. The first half for the Cats was one to forget. In what was easiest the worst this squad has looked all season, it was the return of Chris Rodriguez and the play-calling of Rich Scangarello that led the way. Mix in the special teams mistakes, and UK put themselves in a hole from the beginning. Luckily though this team mimics their head coach, and were up for a fist fight scoring a late touchdown to make the score only a one...

Saturday Headlines: Beat Ole Miss Edition

Photo by Michael Hickey/ Time to get into the teeth of the SEC. Good morning, Big Blue Nation! What a beautiful day to watch some college football! The Kentucky Wildcats are road underdogs as they are in Oxford, Mississippi ready to take on the Ole Miss Rebels. Chris Rodriguez is set to make his season debut and hopefully spark a woeful Kentucky rushing attack. Will Levis and the receivers have carried the offense up until this point. If C-Rod can be the bellcow back that he has been since the time he started playing at UK, then the offense can take it up a notch. This...

Big Blue Pick ‘Em Week 5

Big Blue Pick ‘Em Week 5

Dylan Ballard - A Sea of Blue Week 5 should be a good one in the SEC. It will be an early wake-up call for Coach Mark Stoops and the Kentucky Wildcats on Saturday with an 11:00 am CT kickoff against Ole Miss as a pair of ranked, undefeated teams, will collide in Oxford.

Mark Stoops reminds us why he’s the best coach for Kentucky Wildcats Football

Isamu Haynes-Sunayama - Sea of Blue Ready to run through a brick wall yet? Mark Stoops took over the Kentucky Wildcats football program when it was at its lowest of lows. The roster wasn’t good, and the fanbase was completely checked out. Fast-forward to now, and it’s the complete opposite, as the hype around the No. 7 Wildcats might be at an all-time high. For Stoops, however, it isn’t going to stop here. The Kentucky head coach joined ESPNU Radio before the trip to Ole Miss, and he expressed how this staff has their sights set at a level many would have never...
