    As we look at Paul writing to the church about what he was expecting to find. Because this was going to be his third visit there.

    Dire predictions for the Commonwealth’s three Division 1 football teams, Kentucky, Western Kentucky and Louisville.

    Media chose Kentucky for the SEC East cellar. Sun Belt coaches picked the Hilltoppers for the basement. And, Louisville expectations in the Big East are less a hot topic than Steve Kragthorpe’s hot seat.
