| Kentucky Sports|| UK football assessment after week 3 - kywildcatfanone on 9/14/14 at 9:06 am|
So, week three of year two for Mark Stoops. All I can say is "wow", what an amazing job he and his coaching staff have done.
We can now see the fruits of his year and a half recruiting, but we can also see the pitfalls of a very thin team. There is a huge dropoff in talent. However, that gets fi...

I don't travel a lot, but have seen stories on the news about how truly dirty hotel rooms really are, as well as how little effort is given to cleaning glasses and such.
I don't drink from glasses in hotel rooms anymore, even if I wash them myself. Picked one up today to put water in the iron to...

My FIL is moving in with us and I need to upgrade my setup for more TV's. Dish has the hopper, Direct has genie. I have 2 receivers now, so the hopper would be an upgrade so I ...

MT, I need help. Thinking about buying the wife a new car. I see pricing on the dealerships website with a MSRP price and an advertised special price. Toyota Camry by the way. The advertised price is within $500 of the true car price for sales in my area, so it's pretty good.
However, right now...

| Kentucky Sports|| Predictions for tonight.... - kywildcatfanone on 4/7/14 at 5:21 pm|
As all of UK's games have been, I think it will be a close game.
I hope our guards can give Napier and Boatwright a difficult time, and can guard without lots of fouls.
I think inside we should have a good advantage, and we should be looking to pound inside all night.
It's a heart choice obviou...

Not the gains, just the contributions. Planning for retirement in 5 years, will be 55 years old. Was just thinking if I needed a bit of extra money before I reach 59 1/2, figured I could take some of my contributions out to cover expenses.
Is that an awful idea?...

So, I'm the one who started the "is it time to give up on this team" a couple of weeks back.
However, I did see some growing up this week, and a genuine desire to want to win, which I'm not sure I had seen previously, since they lost to some vastly inferior teams.
Anyway, the stage is set. K ...
