I have high hopes too. I do like UK, I was at the UK-LSU three overtime upset a few years ago in Lexington. Here is a clip: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ctrEiLKMvDw After the game, me and my girlfriend were trying to get back to the car and I'd never seen that many people in the streets going nuts. Cars were flipped and set afire... and let me tell you, you didn't wanna be wearing any LSU garb. I saw a few LSU people get pelted by eggs by UK Frat dudes (or atleast dudes who were hangin out infront of a greek house) LSU fans were getting cursed and taunted and I remember one girl saying.. "Hurry up girl, lets get back to the rouge. These rednecks are idiots." Being a Kentuckian, I just hadda laugh at that one. It doesn't matter if UT is undefeated or winless... if UK beats UT, I expect the same exact reaction as when they beat LSU. While I think the SEC is overrated, they do have the most passionate fan base and from a money perspective, its profitable for the BCS to milk SEC fans for as much of their entertainment budget as possible because they know the SEC will travel, buy hotel rooms, watch the games, and buy the gear... and they know UK boosters will pay the fines when football fields are rushed and field goal posts are torn down.
