This Year is Going to Be Fun!


Watching this game has been nothing but fun. I predicted some losses early on in my preseason previews but I might have to reconsider that!

Basketball is Back!


Tonight we will get our first look at our Cats playing someone besides themselves. The game will be aired on the SEC Network at 7:30. I can’t wait to see how the team is playing together. This is just exhibition game but it’ll give all of BBN a glimpse of how great this team can be.

SEC Nation just gave us a 26% chance to win this game! All the picks from Marcus, Tebow, and Paul went our way though and included a Finebaum comment about grass that was hilarious!

Cats get the ball first! I’d love to see a bruising run filled drive here. 30 yard pass to start off to Dorian Baker for his first catch of this year and we’re in good field position. 4th down attempt and Snell pushes the pile for the first down!

Field goal attempt from 47 is no good. Saw some good things in that first drive but not enough Boom and Benny. Looked like they were trying to get SJ comfortable.

Kentucky defense holds Missouri and their frantic looking offense and gets the touchback.

Boom gets the first touch and breaks it off for a 1st down! BOOOOOOM! On 3rd down they gave us a gift in the form of a Boom 60 yard touchdown run!

Jordan Jones comes up with a great tackle for a loss! 3rd and 4 and a bad snap causes Missouri to give us good field position for our 3rd drive! We need points!

Great drive going here that had an awesome catch by Badet! Oh no, another fumble, this time by Boom. He’s still on the ground after a big hit following the fumble.

Defense holds again gets another touchback. Their punter has gifted Kentucky 40 yards on touchbacks already.

Benny Snell is our feature back with Boom out and that could mean longer drives. A couple of good runs by Snell then one for a loss and a sack on Johnson stalls the drive.

Adrian Middleton came up with two great tackles at the line to force a 4th down! End of the 1st Kentucky leads 7-0.

We are not clicking at all on this drive until a beautiful deep ball finds Badet!!! Kentucky leads 14-0!

Kentucky is keeping this “high powered offense” from doing anything!! We have the ball with a chance to go up three scores! I wonder what our chance is to win now!?

Boom is back and breaks off a 8 yard run! Another one for Boom and he’s over 100 yards! This Eddie Gran guy is alright! I like what Stoops has done with our defense too. I was pretty harsh on him early in the season but I think it was warranted after giving up the big lead against Southern Mississippi and then getting trounced by Florida.

That drive was impressive and we’re up 21-0!!! Running game is going strong! I’m going to say we may have a 200 yard rusher in this game!

This is a strange game and seems to be going by very slow. The time is being kept on the field right now due to scoreboard error. Missouri has had a few decent drives but can’t sustain those drives. They finally get into the endzone with around 2 minutes left before half and it’s 21-7 Cats. The play they scored on seemed like it could’ve been a delay of game penalty but with the clock not working I guess we’ll never know!

So, the two minute offense heads out. Let’s see if they can put up points. Horrible call on 3rd and short by Johnson. Had time and a lane to run for the first, instead he threw it to the sideline.

Johnson drives Kentucky into field goal range and then throws a pick. In other news Louisville is losing 7-10 to Virginia. Half ends 21-7 Cats!

Missouri opens up the 2nd half with a long drive. The Mizzou kicker misses a chip shot!

The 3rd quarter drive for Kentucky has been run, run, run and I love it! Stephen Johnson with a beautiful screen pass to Boom for a TOUCHDOWN KENTUCKY!!! 28-7 CATS!

This is painful to watch for the Tigers. We are having our way with them all over the field! Boom is 33 yards away from 200. Benny is still killing it on the ground too! Snell runs in for the touchdown! 35-7 and it’s going to be crazy in Lexington next week when the Bulldogs come to town! We could be in 1st place in the east if Georgia when’s against Florida. One more game for a bowl game! It’s a great day to be a Wildcat!

Missouri scores and makes the score 35-14. I’m excited to see if Benny or Boom can hit that 200 mark! They are both within 30 yards of that mark as they turn the ball over on downs.

Missouri looks like they want to still win this game and hits a big strike down the field for a touchdown. 35-21 Cats!

Benny came up 8 yards short of the 200 yard mark. FINAL: KENTUCKY 35 Missouri 21. One step closer!!

Happy Caturday!

Let’s all tune in to watch our Cats today at noon on the SEC Network. I will have the live blog up during the game so get engaged with that so we can all cheer the Wildcats on together and watch them get the 5th win of the season!

Happy Birthday Harrison Twins!

For two years these two young men took a lot of criticism and most of it was unwarranted. Andrew provided a consistent top level point guard performance and Aaron hit big shot after big shot after big shot when we needed it most. So, happy birthday you guys!

Kentucky Players That Made a Final Roster

With the NBA season beginning this week, I figured I would make a list like my hero Chris Jericho. This list isn’t full of stupid idiots and mutton heads. This list is every Wildcat that made a final roster. Kentucky leads the NBA with most players from one school, with 23. Now all we need is for all 23 to make the All-Star team and Cal could get his wish!
