  • Kentucky, Western and Louisville...

    Last, last and also-ran.

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

    Low expectation is a blast furnace for fiery motivation speeches to stir pride of strong young men “... to prove those experts wrong.”

    Good news?
