The SEC has released their 2013 conference schedule for football while Kentucky has released their complete football schedule for the 2013 season.
Kentucky will play host to Florida, Alabama, Missouri, and Tennessee. They will play South Carolina, Mississippi State, Georgia, and Vanderbilt on the road. As far as non-conference goes, the Wildcats go on the road to open up the season in Nashville against Western Kentucky. They play host to Miami of Ohio, Louisville, and Alabama State. As far as predicting wins and losses, I’m not even going to go there but there is a stretch of 4 consecutive weeks with the potential to see opponents ranked in the top 25 (Louisville, Florida, South Carolina, and Alabama).
The 2013 schedule is a bridge season with regards to SEC Football. The permanent rotation of cross-division opponents will begin to take place starting with the 2014 schedule release.
In other football news, Kentucky alumni Jacob Tamme and Wesley Woodyard will be signing autographs in Keeneland’s North Terrace from 12:30–2 pm on Friday. They both are currently playing for the Denver Broncos.
In what is probably the strangest things anybody will read all year long, former Kentucky point guard John Wall does not know who Jon Bon Jovi is. Instead of making this a music blog, I’ll just leave it at that.
While there are not currently any former Kentucky Wildcat baseball players playing in the postseason, former Lexington resident Brian Cashman is the General Manager for the New York Yankees. An interesting correlation does exist between the Wildcats and the Yankees. Not including 1948, the New York Yankees have won the World Series in every year that the Kentucky Wildcats win the NCAA tournament: 1949, 1951, 1958, 1978, 1996, and 1998. Whether the Yankees have a chance to go to the World Series depends on what happens this afternoon during Game 4 of the American League Championship Series.
