Kentucky coach Joker Phillips was asked today about the weather forecasts that predict rain, rain and more rain for Sunday’s UK-U of L game at Papa John’s Cardinal Stadium.
Phillips said bring it on. Not bring on the rain necessarily, but bring on any kind of weather. Rain. Sun. Cold. Heat. Ice. Snow. Doesn’t matter. Phillips said his team is ready to play.
Here is the Sunday forecast, via weather.com.
That’s not comforting for those of us who sat through a long delay in 2000 at Papa John’s during what turned out to be a 40-34 Louisville victory in overtime. The 2003 game at Commonwealth Stadium, the first for new U of L coach Bobby Petrino and new UK coach Rich Brooks, was also delayed by rain.
