  1. In all my life, I have never been as excited about UK football. Well, with the exception of the Tim Couch era. Just be competitive this year and I’ll be happy as the schedule we have is the toughest in the nation. But that will just make us better the next year and the next. We need to be patient. And all the naysayers can just go on and continue to be jealous. GO BIG BLUE!

  2. WOW – wouldn’t this be a real coup! Wouldn’t surprise me, however. GO CATS!

  3. He’s ours and now a national ranking of #3.
