Perhaps the biggest question mark on the Kentucky football team going into this season would be the defensive line. Even coach Mark Stoops knows that.

“We need certain groups to step up, in particular the defensive line,” Stoops said Monday.

Then he had to announce why that suddenly is harder — defensive lineman Regie Meant is out indefinitely for personal reasons and Stoops has no idea if he will rejoin the team this year or not.

Jacob Hyde, Courtney Love impress fan with enthusiasm

When it comes to Kentucky, no one loves the Wildcats more than UK defensive lineman Jacob Hyde.

That’s why it was no real surprise Michael Paul Clark let me  know on Twitter Saturday what an “awesome” job that Hyde did showing season ticket holders around Commonwealth Stadium.

But wait. It got better at the end.

“He honored my request for him to lead us in ‘On, On UofK’ in the locker room,” Clark said. “He and Courtney (Love) didn’t hesitate when I asked him to close us out with the fight song. Neat moment.”
