I am a freshman at the University of Kentucky. Unfortunately I was born to enjoy the University of Louisville Cardinal basketball, but by the grace of God when I was about five years old I found myself cheering for Rick Pitino and the Kentucky Wildcats. As the years progressed I found myself becoming a die-hard fan. I could rattle off the entire roster and coaches at the age of eight. I studied history books so that I knew historical games, players, and coaches.

Basketball was and is my first love. I do, however, love college football. My favorite team outside of Kentucky is the University of Michigan Wolverines. I have always been attracted to tradition rich programs, Michigan is one of them. Since I was about eleven, when I bought a Michigan football shirt at Champs Sports store at the Mall of St. Matthews in Louisville, KY I have been a Wolverine fan.

I like pro sports, but they really don't interest me like college athletics. I generally cheer for pro teams that have UK or Michigan alumni on the team. As of now my favorite pro teams are the Boston Celtics, Detroit Pistons, and the Green Bay Packers, and the Tennessee Titans. The Packers and Titans? They have no UK alumni, BUT they do have Trinity Shamrocks [Brian Brohm (Packers) and Rob Bironas (Titans)] - - I graduated from Trinity in 2008.

    Thanks. I sent you a test email, and I'll delete that post so nobody gets your address from here.

    Ok. Could I get your email so I can send you the questions the night before we do it? It will just make things go faster if we all know how we're going to initially answer when the time comes.

    I changed the pic on your Bowl Predictions article. B/R asks that you have an action shot rather than a logo.
