Big football rivalry games

Kentucky is bowl-eligible for the fifth-straight year after last Saturday’s win over Vanderbilt. After a bye week yesterday, the Cats will finish up in Knoxville Saturday. After ending a long losing streak to South Carolina earlier this season, an even longer losing streak factors into the Tennessee game. The Vols are having a down year, but always seem to bring their A-game against Kentucky.

Ohio State stayed in a 3-way tie in the Big Ten by winning in Iowa City yesterday 20-17. Up next is Michigan. The Bucks are looking for at least a share of their 6th straight Big Ten title.

While on the subject of football, I have to confess to my disappointment in the on-field behavior of some of the OSU players. There seemed to be a lot of anger at some of the coach’s and referee’s calls. There is a lot of pressure on players to keep winning traditions going, but the lack of discipline is a bit disconcerting to me.
