Should Alabama be a 30-point favorite over UK in Commonwealth Stadium?


If you want a dose of reality about the upcoming Kentucky football season, consider this: Alabama is listed as a 30-point favorite on the road against Kentucky?

That’s T-H-I-R-T-Y!!!

If that line would stay there — or rise — for the  Oct. 12 game, it would be the largest line of the Nick Saban era at Alabama. Last year Alabama was a 21-point favorite at Missouri and won and in 2011 was a 27-point favorite at Mississippi and easily won.

Does that line make sense to you? Would you expect Alabama to beat UK by 30 or more in Commonwealth Stadium?

    given the impressive recruiting that mark stoops has done already I would really be surprised that he can’t coach too. think win

    I understand in a sense where it comes from. They are looking at what we did last year, Bama last year and what returns, what UK returns, plus unproven Head coach versus a very proven Head coach. Looks ugly doesn’t it.

    That line will probably go down some as we play our first three games, and how well we perform against Florida our first SEC opponent of the year.

    Hard truth, we blow chunks these 1st four games that line might go up. We meet and exceed fan expectations , ie mine beat 1st three teams of the year, and FL doesn’t take us seriously, and we knock them off in a big upset, that line would drop for us. Go BBN.

    GOOD…..” Incentive ! ” Motivation ! ” Whatever you want to Call It, Now Our Cats & Coaches, can prove them Wrong….

    Just odds makers making noise. UK needs to show up and play hard, win some respect.
    It begins on Aug. 31, 2013. I don’t ever worry about the spread because UK is always the underdog in football, so I’m used to it. I believe that is going to change and we can shut some of these experts up. To be honest, I’m kind of getting tired of Alabama running rough shod over everybody.

    If Neal Brown can get in a lot of plays, then there will not be a 30 point differential. Nick Saban is not a huge fan of the no huddle fast pace offenses and that’s where his team struggled against Texas A&M.

    Right On Andy…..All across the SEC….The Cats Are Coming, your Defense better have strong lungs…

    We’ll do better than the pundits think. But I don’t expect miracles. I’m in the camp, that, if we make the SEC wake up and take notice this year, we’ve been successful. We’ve got good players coming in, but they’ve got to grow.

    Don’t get me wrong am a big fan of SEC football, but in my opinion i think Alabama king days are over. Ohio st will take over this time around!!!

    We lack depth and be coming off three straight games to UL, Florida and South Carolina. I could see it being a blowout.

  10. TheProfessor

    I see this as a 28 to 35 point game.

    I have never seen so much doom and gloom from some of you guys. If our football players are thinking the same way some of you people are, UK might as well go ahead and forfeit. What happened to the old college try? I say make those hot shot teams prove it. GO CATS!!!!

    Who cares what the preseason line is? The game is played on the field. Listening to trash-talk is what gets you beat. This is just someone in the press trying to attract attention (sorry Larry. No offense to your profession). Besides, it should provide team incentive. A good test of the team’s metal.

    Amen RJ! Now your preachin!

    Now you know how the SEC Basketball teams feel about UK.
