picks Kentucky to win just three football games

Andy Staples of has made his projections for SEC football and he's not too optimistic where Kentucky is concerned.

His prediction: Kentucky will go 3-9 overall and 0-8 in the league.

Andy thinks that Joker Phillips will get shown the door, as well.

“These days, it is sometimes prudent for an athletic director to make a coaching change just to prime the donation pump,” writes Staples. “Unless Kentucky has a miracle season, a change might be the only way to get the money flowing again.”

I haven't made my season won-loss projection yet — look for it next week — but I think the Cats will win more than three games.

    3 wins? that sounds about right. not so sure they will beat western ky, so maybe 2 wins.

    I can certainly see where Andy is coming from, if things break wrong, the team might check out mentally by mid-season and only get to three wins but I tend to agree with John in that they should win more…they have enough ‘cupcakes’ on the schedule to grab four.

    Four wins is a more realistic possibility. Not much difference I know especially in the matter of Joker being fired.

    Either way in that case, three wins, four wins ‘he gone’ in the words of White Sox TV announcer “Hawk” Harrelson.
