Inside the column: Cats and expectations

A few emails came on this one, but first, a bit about the process. Most years, watching UK fans get excited about football is much like watching one of those laboratory animals touching the electric switch to get a treat. After a few tries, those animals get shocked enough to learn. UK fans, generally, have not. They have hyped some very, very bad teams. Sorry folks, you have to admit that.

Now, there’s nothing wrong with being optimistic. And there’s nothing wrong with believing in your team.

But the truth is what it is.

However, I’m saying today that despite all that, there’s legitimate reason for UK to be excited this season — and that excitement and expectation won’t have been misplaced even if the record is worse than it was a year ago, because the schedule is more difficult.

Two Qs and As, and I’m out . . .

Q: Why do you have to be so sarcastic? Can’t you just write an article without the tone? This was nothing but backhanded praise for UK.

A: My apologies if the quality of my praise was not pure enough. And I don’t think this was too sarcastic. I think you are inferring a tone that wasn’t intended. Perhaps a knee-jerk reaction from the press pounding the program has taken in its history.

Q: Can you tell me where you predicted UK would go 7-5 last year. I think you’re full of @*#%.

A: I made the prediction on this very blog. I did miss on one thing, though — I said UK would beat South Carolina, not Georgia. And I missed on something else. I said UK would go 7-5 against U of L’s schedule last year. That was a bad prediction. If UK went 7-5 against its own schedule, it would’ve done much better against U of L’s. Still, my season prediction of UK was 7-5. For those who wondered why I would include it today — here’s why. I don’t just hype teams to be hyping them. I do it when I sincerely believe they’ve got a chance to be good. If I’d picked UK to go 4-8 last year, I’d have put that in, too, to illustrate that I misread the Wildcats myself.

Anyway, for any who care, the link to my predictions from last preseason.
