The end of 2012 and the beginning of 2013 is a time frame in which many Kentucky fans would love to forget. Constant disappointment and embarrassment were common themes for the two main sports programs. For football, Wildcat fans had to deal with a two win season and a shameful loss to Western Kentucky at Commonwealth stadium. For basketball, John Calipari had to deal with a season ending injury to his star player, an NIT invitation, and a shocking loss to little known Robert Morris on the road.
As if things couldn’t get any worse, our rival down the road experienced unprecedented successes in both football and basketball. Big Brother was taking a back seat to Little Brother for the first time in a long time. National prominence wasn’t focused on the Commonwealth’s Team, it had been shifted to City’s Team.
But the fog is starting to clear as both football and basketball are set to achieve new heights and restore dominance once again.
