After last year’s ugly win over Western Kentucky and last week’s win over Kent State, the Cats hit the field tonight with some expectations. Just winning isn´t an option, however. The Cats must show up and win impressively in one of their remaining “most likely to win” games on the schedule.
WKU isn’t to be taken lightly. The Toppers believe, as do a few select sportswriters, that they hold a chance of upsetting Kentucky at Commonwealth Stadium on Saturday. “It’s not anything that we think too much on — we think we can win every game,” said linebacker Tye Golden on Wednesday. “This week it’s an SEC team, but we’re not backing down. We’re just going to come out here and play our game.”
As we approach the football/basketball doubleheader today, Julius Randle is in town to witness it all, as he announced on Twitter yesterday. He is in town for the alumni game on Saturday afternoon, and there shouldn’t be anything more mindblowing than that for a recruit in person.
Louisville mayor Greg Fisher and over 20 power brokers engaged in dialogue on Friday in hopes to pursue an NBA franchise and bring it to Louisville. “That’s what all this process is about is to pursue what those options are and to see if we can do it. It’s got to be a win for multiple stakeholders in the community, and what’s important is that we have these kinds of conversations.”
Congratulations to the Kentucky men’s soccer, which scored an upset over No. 18 Louisville in a 1-0 match at Cardinal Park on Friday night. Chalk up another Kentucky win over Louisville in the “overall” category.
