    Week 1 @ Maryland
    L 30-28

    (AP) College Park, MD - "Its a sickening feeling."

    The words of head coach Joker Phillips following his teams loss at Maryland. The Wildcats played a pretty good game-on offense. Coach Phillips stated numerous times in the postgame press conference that the defense must get better. The defense showed flashes of brilliance throughout the game. Star linebacker Danny Trevathan forced a fumble on a sack and had an interception in the game.

    "You won't win many games giving up 30 points, that is something I can guarantee you."

    Phillips was also very upset about giving up a long pass play to set up Maryland's game winning field goal.

    "We needed 1 more play on defense to get the win...one more. We need to learn to play with the lead and not let teams hang around. I'm not saying we could have beat this team by a couple scores, but if we let certain teams hang around we will have a long season."

    Week 2 vs Memphis
    W 59-7

    (AP) Lexington, KY - Before the game a reporter asked Senior Randall Cobb what his plan of attack would be against Memphis; "Just watch" the do-it-all man replied.

    And watch we did. Cobb made big play after big play for Kentucky, who was trying to get back on track after a heart-wrenching loss the week before @ Maryland. Cobb got involved in both the rushing, receiving, and returning game-sparking the nickname R3D2. As corny as it may be, we are going to run with it. Cobb averaged 10 yards per rush, with 2 20 yard runs (one of 52 yards). But more impressive then his running game was a reception he made in the first quarter that made the Kentucky faithful go wild in amazement. Senior quarterback Morgan Newton dropped back and flung the ball to Cobb who snuck in between the Memphis zone coverage. The elusive receiver ditched one Tiger defender with a spin, but was then engulfed by 4 more. The crowd cheered for the nice 15 yard play that was produced, but roared to an amazing 105 decibels as Cobb shook all 4 Memphis tacklers and sprinted 50 more yards to the endzone.

    Let the Heisman hype begin.

    Senior defensive leader Danny Trevathan also delivered an incredible game, scoring 2 defensive touchdowns. The All-SEC selection returned a fumble and an interception while posting 9 solo tackles, for of which were for a loss. The Wildcat defense held Memphis to just 265 total yards, and were able to intercept 5 passes while forcing 3 fumbles.

    "This is what happens when it all comes together," said coach Joker Phillips. "We know we are a good team, we just need to be consistent on both sides of the ball and not beat ourselves. The defense did a great job of forcing turnovers. We would have liked to not have any turnovers on offense, and it is something we will make sure we cover in practice this week. We have a big rivalry game next and would love nothing more then to demolish Louisville here in Lexington. Take that to the bank."

    Off to the bank we are.

    Week 3 vs Louisville
    W 20-13

    (AP) Lexington, KY - Another chapter in a great rivalry. A tale of two halves. Big time players in big time situations. Whatever completely original opening line you want to pick out of those 3 would fit this game:

    The rivalry - These two in state rivals both came into this game wanting to tear at the other team. Louisville was a disappointing 0-2 coming in, while the Wildcats were at a less then desired 1-1. "The Battle for the Governors Cup" was everything it was building up to be, despite the what the records may be. As the old adage goes, throw out the records when these two meet.

    Tale of Two Halves- Louisville came out playing well in the first half, up 10-0 at the end of the first quarter. Kentucky didn't get rid of the goose egg until a Ryan Tydlacka field goal as the clock expired to go into halftime. After the break Louisville added a field goal on their opening drive. After that it was all Wildcats. UK added another Tydlacka field goal with 2 minutes left in the 3rd, leaving many fans in the stands wearing blue quite worried. 13-6 was the score after 3, though Kentucky was on the move as the quarter ended. On the first play of the 4th quarter, quarterback Morgan Newton lobbed a ball to a fly route by Randall Cobb who ran underneath it and tied the game. A 3 and out by Louisville led to another great Kentucky drive. On 3rd and 2, Cobb stepped into his "QB" spot in the Wildcat formation and took the snap and started forward. The Louisville defense surged forward. Then Cobb fooled everyone in the stadium, pulling up and taking a few steps back before throwing a ball towards the back of the endzone. Sophomore tight end Alex Smith made a great diving/rolling catch and Kentucky found themselves on top with 5:47 left on the clock.

    2 Louisville fumbles killed any drive the Cardinals tried to muster to tie the game back up, the last coming on a Kentucky punt with 2 minutes left after UL used all three timeouts to prevent the Wildcats from running the clock out. Kentucky recovered the fumble and went on to run the clock out.

    Big time players- Cobb again came up big for UK. Tallying 75 yards rushing on 22 carries, 5 catches for 62 yards and a TD, and a 7 yard TD pass. Junior WR Larod King also came up big for Kentucky, making countless clutch catches to keep the Louisville defense honest. King finished with 92 yards on 4 catches. Defensively UK was led by LOLB Qua Huzzie's 3 tackles and 2 forced fumbles.

    Week 4 vs Ole Miss
    W 24-10

    (AP) Lexington, KY - A typical SEC slugfest would be the label for this game. Each team pounding away trying to make hte other team break, and in the end Kentucky broke through. Heisman hopeful Randall Cobb again lead the Wildcat offense, putting up 98 yards rushing and 19 receiving, along with 2 rushing TD's. Junior wideout Larod King made a huge play for UK when he scored on a 27 yard reception from QB Morgan Newton. King scored with a minute to go before halftime, giving his team a lead they would never lose. King made an exceptional play coming back to ball on bad pass by Newton, and sprinted for the pylon after making the catch.

    Defensively Kentucky got another great performance by All-SEC linebacker Danny Trevathan. The senior 5 solo tackles and 1 assisted (1 TFL), and an INT. Senior Ronnie Sneed also put in a great game with 6 solo tackles, 3 assisted and 1 TFL. The UK defense was able to pick of Ole Miss 4 times, and caused 3 fumbles. The stat of the game though, was Ole miss being held to 192 yards of total offense.

    "You won't lose many games when your defense plays like that" said head coach Joker Phillips.

    No sir you won't.

    Week 5 @ Georgia
    W 20-7

    (AP) Athens, GA - "Whatever it takes". That was the slogan for Kentucky heading into their SEC divisional game with the Georgia Bulldogs on Saturday. A packed crowd at The Hedges proved to be a daunting task for UK, but they stepped up and delivered big.

    Another typical win from the Wildcats - offense from Mr. Cobb and the defense delivering in the clutch. Many Kentucky fans were a tad worried that a floodgate had been opened when Georgia back Caleb King scored on a 22 yard run (the Bulldog rushing attack was the point of emphasis for the defense this week). The defense did a great job of forcing UGA into 3rd and 7+ yards on multiple occasions, opening the defensive playbook for defensive coordinator Tyler Kasperson. By forcing the Bulldogs to be one dimensional like this, they managed to hold them to a lousy 144 passing yards. Star wide receiver AJ Green for Georgia was limited to 3 catches for 40 yards, many times paying for even attempting to catch the ball. Senior D captain Danny Trevathan tallied 9 tackles on the day. Senior CB Randall Burden benefited from a miscommunication within the Georgia offense to nab himself an interception.

    On offense the Wildcats were nothing special, but got points on the board. Junior Larod King tallied 58 receiving yards on just 2 catches (one went for 42 yards). Cobb finished with 46 receiving yards and a TD along with 105 rushing yards and a TD. QB Morgan Newton had a management type day, going 9-22 for 162 yards with a TD and 0 INT's.

    Kentucky travels to South Carolina next week.

    Week 7 @ LSU
    W 34-31

    (AP) Baton Rouge, LA - Ryan Tydlacka; name ring a bell? If your outside of the Kentucky Wildcat football community you probably don't know the name. The senior Punter and Kicker combo man could very well be a household name tomorrow.

    Kentucky found themselves down 31-10 after a early onslaught of fumbles and LSU offense in their game Saturday in Baton Rouge. A 24 yard TD pass by Jordan Jefferson, a Dan Wheeler 41 yard FG and 2 fumble returns by the LSU defense put the tally at 24-3. A Randall Cobb TD seemed to put the momentum behind Kentucky going into the half, but a Michael Ford 55 yard TD run right out of the gate again sunk Kentucky's hopes.

    Back came the Wildcats. Randall Cobb from 6 yards out, a couple interceptions by CB Randall Burden and All-Everything LB Danny Trevathan, a 23 yard TD to Anthony Mosley and a 28 yarder to Larod King (on LSU's All-American and future lottery pick CB Patrick Peterson) and UK had tied the ball game.

    Head coach Joker Phillips called the next defensive stops "the most clutch play of the season". The Kentucky defense stiffened up after giving up a close first down and got the ball back to junior RB Donald Russell. Russell pounded away on a tired LSU defense, moving Kentucky into field goal range. Ryan Tydlacka lines up with 4 seconds left and sent the game winner in from 43 yards out.

    Game; final score Kentucky 34, LSU 31.

    Week 8 vs Mississippi State
    W 35-13

    (AP) Lexintong, KY - This game was a lot closer then the final score would say. Both teams came fast and it looked to be a high scoring affair. Bulldog RB Robert Elliot took the very first play from scrimmage 78 yards to the house, leaving many Wildcat fans wondering about what kind of day they were about to see. After an exchange of punts, Randall Cobb took a run 41 yards; at the end he struck the infamous Heisman pose. After the Kentucky defense got an interception, senior QB Morgan Newton found WR Anthony Mosley for a 14 yard strike. Coaches later commented that it was a beautiful toss by Newton, who floated the ball just over the hands of a Miss State DB trying to swat it down. UK was able to tack on one more TD before the half on a 17 yard throw from Newton to fellow senior Greg McCaskill.

    The third quarter saw limited scoring, as the only points of the quarter came on a 33 yard run by Miss State RB Robert Johnson. The score heading into the fourth quarter 21-13.

    UK was able to tack on 2 TD's late in the 4th to pull away and leave a 35-13 final score.

    Randall Cobb was the star of the day for Kentucky, gashing the Miss State defense for 10 yards on a consistent basis. Cobb finished with 190 yards on 27 carries and 2 TD's. Junior WR Larod King also pitched in with 88 yards on 5 receptions and a TD. QB Morgan Newton had a solid day, going 15-30 for 250 yards and 3 scores. UK receivers dropped a few balls today.

    Defensively Kentucky had a less then desirable day.If it wasn't for their ability to "bend but not break" and generate interceptions, it would have been a lot closer today. Head coach Joker Phillips was hugely disappointed with the rush defense, which gave up 228 yards on just 17 carries to MSU RB Robert Elliot.

    "If we do that next week against Florida, we will get dominated. No other way to put it."
