We know how bad Kentucky is, but we may not know how good Louisville is until the Cardinals go to Miami on Thursday, Oct. 14.

U of L's 28-0 blowout of UK before a Papa John's Cardinal Stadium record crowd of 42,681 was no surprise. For the past several weeks my Lexington sources have insisted that this may be the weakest Kentucky team since the World War II years before Bear Bryant.
