Kentucky wide receiver tears ACL doing chest-bump TD celebration

Most injuries in college football are unavoidable – the sport is undeniably dangerous. That’s why it’s so frustrating to see serious injuries that didn’t need to happen. Kentucky wideout Alex Montgomery’s torn ACL is the latest example. Montgomery, celebrating a touchdown grab during UK’s 48-14 victory over Alabama State, landed awkwardly after a chest-bump with two of...

Kentucky unveils team logo thigh pads

The Kentucky Wildcats football team unveiled these new awesome team-logo thigh pads for their game on Thursday against Mississippi State.  Not only do the pads have the team logo they have the players number on it as well.  It definitely wouldn’t surprise me if other schools followed their lead and started to do this as well.

Mark Stoops rips his team, says spread isn't high enough

It’s no secret that Wildcats head coach Mark Stoops inherited a team and a program that was used to losing football games. But he clearly doesn’t want his players to accept it as the norm. Stoops went off on his team after practice today, even going as far as to suggest that South Carolina, UK’s opponent this Saturday, should be favored by more than 21 points. KyForward’s...

WATCH: Kentucky runs great trick field goal for touchdown

Kentucky lost to Florida on Saturday, 24-7, for the 19th straight time in the series. A loss to Florida we expect any time Kentucky takes the field. What we rarely expect is for the Gators to get caught on the receiving end of a fake field goal that goes for a touchdown, with the kicker outrunning the Florida defensive players on special teams down the sideline. That is exactly...

Spring Shocker: 51,000 show up for Kentucky spring game

(Photo Courtesy: Mark Stoops' Twitter) As recently as six months ago, had you asked most Kentucky fans how they planned to spend Saturday April 13, 2013, most would’ve likely responded by saying that if anything, they’d spend the early evening watching the Jordan Brand All-American high school basketball game.

He reappeared on our radar today after new Kentucky head coach Mark Stoops hired former Kentucky receiver Neal Brown as offensive coordinator and former offensive lineman John Schlarman as offensive line coach. Lorenzen...
