UK vs. Florida St. – Preview
Posted by ibleedblue040 on December 30, 2007
Everyone knows the biggest story that will come from the Kentucky Wildcats vs. Florida State Seminoles game, because it has already happened. As everyone that hasn’t been living under a rock knows, Florida State has 36 players not making the trip for tomorrow’s game against the ‘Cats in the Music City Bowl in Nashville, Tennessee. 34 players do to cheating on an online course. The top three Defensive Tackles and the top Cornerback for the Seminoles will not be participating in the game and it has made national headlines.
A story about the players has already appeared on the front page of ESPN.com, SI.com (Sports Illustrated), CBS.sportsline.com, and Foxsports.com. All the articles pointed out that Andre’ Woodson is already one of the best Quarterbacks in the country and the thin line of players that Florida State is left with should make the game all the more easier for the future NFL star.
Kentucky has problems of their own. The University of Kentucky athletic department released a report stating that Keenan Burton, the number one Wide Reciever on the team, will not be playing in the game (knee). Jason Leger, an Offensive Lineman, will not be playing either due to violating team rules.
As you are probably wondering (sarcasm), I believe Kentucky will win the game tomorrow. I think Andre’ Woodson will play inspired football in his last career game and I think he throws for 350 yards, 2 touchdowns, and 1 interception. I see the final score being 27-20 Kentucky. I think the game will be closer than most people think because Florida State will be playing inspired football as well because of all the players missing.
