Thursday morning notes: Game day nearing

  • There's a reason they call the yards gained or lost on special teams "hidden": it's because that part of the game is not talked about noticed nearly as much as it probably should be. That's not so much of an issue this week, as Florida's special teams unit and what UK must do to combat it on Saturday have very hot topics. I wrote on the subject yesterday and so did Michael Grant of the Courier-Journal. Clearly, UK will need to hold its own in the battle for field position to win this weekend.
  • Facing the difficult challenge of playing the third-ranked team in one of the nation's best venues, the men's soccer team succumbed to Creighton by a score of 2-0 last night. Though disappointing to the team, there is no shame in dropping a road decision against a defensive unit that has yet to allow a goal this season. The No. 21 Wildcats (6-3-1) returned to Lexington very early this morning and will immediately begin preparing for a home matchup against Evansville at 7 p.m. tomorrow. The turnaround will be tough, but UK has shown the ability to rebound from losses this season. Head on over the UK Soccer Complex tomorrow evening to see one of the most entertaining teams on campus take the field.

  • While men's soccer is returning home, volleyball is getting ready to hit the road. After a month-long home stretch that saw the Cats win nine matches in a row and 27-of-29 sets, UK (11-2) hits the road for a pair of tests this weekend. It begins in Gainesville, Fla., with the most difficult match the SEC has to offer against the No. 6 Florida Gators. Balanced performances have carried UK to its recent success and those will need to be duplicated as UK begins its run at the SEC title in earnest this weekend.
