Answers to our Kentucky Wildcats Football Trivia contest


Thanks to all who email and replied about our Kentucky Wildcats Football Trivia contest.  I called upon Corey Price to give me his best trivia questions and in the end, a few of you were able to answer the call and have won a copy of Paul Finebaum’s new book “My Conference Can Beat Your Conference”.  I have to admit that a lot of Corey’s questions sent me to the internet myself, so congrats to our winners.

We did get enough perfect answers that it exceeded my copies of the books, so we had to go to the dreaded drawing for prizes.  Winners will be notified by email later today (Tuesday), so watch your inbox.
