There is nothing like the college football season. From tailgating to being around all the amazing looking sorority girls to watching your football team play, is something that every man looks forward to week in and week out. The season is right around the corner but their are still many things that the Kentucky football team needs to fine tune before they are ready to take the field against hated rival Louisville on September 4th.
The Louisville game will be a good test at the beginning of the season. The Wildcats will get to take the first swing at former Florida Gator coordinator and new Louisville head coach Charlie Strong. The Louisville game will be one of the biggest games of the season as it usually is but the 'Cats on paper have more talent but in rivalry games who's better on paper doesn't really play a factor.
Kentucky still has many question marks before they get to step on the playing field and the biggest one being who will be behind center. It's rare to see a three-quarterback race going into fall camps. Kentucky and coach Joker Phillips do not know who is going to play the role as the field general.
Two games that have caught my attention on the schedule this season are South Carolina and Georgia. South Carolina under head coach Steve Spurrier have never lost to Kentucky. Kentucky found themselves in a shootout last season vs. the Gamecocks which, the 'Cats very easily could have won. Steve Spurrier also has another little record vs. the Wildcats.
Spurrier has never suffered a defeat to them in his coaching career. They play in Lexington this season and the fans will be out in full support to hopefully bring home their first victory against Spurrier.
Georgia is an interesting game because Rich Brooks began making a habit of beating the Bulldogs. They have won twice out of the last three times they have faced the Bulldogs. Georgia had a down season last year after losing their star quarterback Matthew Stafford to the NFL and this season A.J. Green has much more experience and could wreak havoc on the Kentucky secondary.
Those two games will be the most fun to watch in Lexington and are two conference games that the Wildcats are capable of winning. Either way you want to look at it college football is back and pretty soon the days of just watching baseball everyday will be over.
Tailgating will be at a premium on Saturday's as it usually is and the drunk college students will be screaming at the top of their lungs trying to feed into the electricity flying through their respected stadiums.
For Kentucky we can only hope that there are going to be many highlight reel plays from Randall Cobb and Derrick Locke. Get ready college football fans the season is right around the corner.
