No. 9 – November 11 vs. Kentucky
After the cupcakes, Kentucky should be the easiest game on the schedule. And, yes, even easier than Vanderbilt.
I know Kentucky has running back Benny Snell. And, Snell is pretty good. Okay, he is terrific. Last season Snell accounted for 1333 rushing yards on 262 attempts with 19 touchdowns. He wasn’t much of receiving threat out of the backfield with only ten receptions for 72 yards and zero touchdowns.
Every year it is the same thing with Kentucky. They are supposed to be this new and improved team, and yet every single year they are the same ole Kentucky football team that is one of the worst in the SEC.
I know that the Wildcats got the best of Tennessee last season, but that means nothing going forward. Butch Jones was such a bad coach; he could have been the head coach at Alabama they would have lost games.
Yes, Kentucky beat Tennessee last year but with Jeremy Pruitt leading the way those days are over. The Wildcats go back to a team that the Vols handle with ease. With the way the Pruitt and company are recruiting, Kentucky will be lucky to win a game in the series in the next ten seasons. Here is a prediction for you. Go ahead and mark this game down as a win for Tennessee.
