  • Governor's Cup winner? Like picking Derby horse

    Governor’s Cup XXIII, Kentucky at Louisville.

    History tells us, as a season opener, picking a Gov’s Cup winner is like handicapping the Kentucky Derby – everybody’s an expert and nobody has a clue.

    Today, (keepin’ it simple, stupid) one man climbs out on one limb ...

    1. UK defensive line will be better than Louisville’s offensive one.
