Life as a Kentucky football fan has never been easy. While recently, things have improved for UK football, the majority of the time has been a series of disappointing seasons and unbearable losing streaks.
As the program has improved, I have dared to hope for bigger and better things each season. I don’t expect UK to be playing for the national championship anytime soon, but it’s a nice feeling to see wins more than losses.
UK is in the top 20 this week. Do I believe that they are among the elite football teams? Experience tells me no, my heart wants to believe, but things will be clearer after this Saturday.
UK plays a conference game on the toad at Ole Miss. If UK wins, I’ll be much more enthusiastic about their chances in the future.
