What better way to prepare for the Kentucky Game than some wisdom straight from the (race)horse's mouth. Many thanks to Glenn Logan at A Sea Of Blue for having a sense of humor while dropping some knowledge about the Wildcats.
Just how hot is Joker Phillips' seat presently, and how hot would it become following a loss to an Arkansas team led by John L. Smith? Please present answers in the form of a Scoville Heat Unit (SHU).
Many Kentucky fans are not as discriminating as I, and could care less if Petrino and the truth are total strangers, as long as he wins. Did I mention we are desperate? Nobody should know better than you how desperate it would be for us to hire such a walking, talking ethics contradiction.
Under Whitlow, it has fluctuated between barely competent and ineffective. But don't count on that, Whitlow is getting better at this, as young players do. And our offensive line has been competent, so he'll have a chance to throw.
Under Whitlow, it is a simplified, dumbed-down version of a West-coast offense. The only notable characteristic is that we run a lot of no-huddle, and don't run very often on the edges. Maybe they'll trot out more of it on Saturday, but I'm not counting on it.
To your second question, probably not. I don't think Kent St. or Western is really better than Arkansas. But if I did have to answer yes, I'd have to ask if it might not be better just to spare the patrons the horror and flip a coin for the victory. We'll take tails.
The radio shows will probably be talking Midnight/Big Blue Madness, and trying to figure out who the next respective head coaches will be.
