  • Governor's Cup was a back...

    The 15th Governor’s Cup made up in suspense and back-and-forth what it may have lacked in Southern Cal vs. Whoever hype.

    When the smoke cleared on a 31-27 Kentucky win, these things were clear.

    √ A wager on a two touchdown point spread in a rival match is a sucker bet.

    √ Scoreboard clicked up 58 points keeping 70,988 fans on the edge of their seats, and was a good alternative for a television audience bored with Alabama’s scrimmage against North Texas State, Ohio State-Toledo and Michigan-Eastern Michigan.

    Reasons why we’ve arrived at best time of the year in the Bluegrass State.

    1. Big Triple comes in October.

    Fall racing at Keeneland begins the 9th; Big Blue Madness at Rupp Arena, the 16th. And, a day later Rich Brooks’ team plays what could be a season-maker at Auburn.

    2. Next week at historic Churchill Downs, filming starts on a motion picture about Secretariat.

    3. Hot seat. What college season would be complete without a coach on one? Steve Kragthorpe at Louisville is the man. Is Western’s David Elson next?
