Post-game celebration signals return of

TON, Ind. — Four
weeks into the sea-
son, UK is finally
having some fun.

In a nearly de-
serted Memorial
Stadium, the Cats
clowned around and
acted like kids.
Players laughed and
coaches smiled. The
remaining fans in
blue roared their approval.

Football was fun again.

It was the first time
since last season that UK’s
football team looked like it
was having a good time.

The Louisville game
wasn't fun for anyone. and
the Murray State game was a

The trip to Alabama saw


improvement for the
Cats. but as UK head
coach Rich Brooks
said, “losing sucks."
Against Indiana,
UK showed signs of
life. But it was the
Cats' impromptu
post-game celebra~
tion that really
brought back the fun.
Last season. the
Cats delivered a sur-
prising 7-5 record. Each game
was an exciting experience as
the Cats continued to stun
fans with their solid play.
Even the losses were wild
rides. like that Florida game
in the Swamp. And even that
LSU game was fun, right up
to that part never mind.
The Cats gave us more
than we ever expected, and

we loved it.

This season. the Cats
face higher expectations and
greater obstacles.

Gone is Artose Pinner,
the Southeastern Confer-
ence’s leading rusher in 2002.
Gone too is Glenn Pakulak,
the team's All-American
punter. And most importantly,
the Cat lost their biggest and
loudest cheerleader. former
head coach Guy Morriss

Brooks immediately
faced expectations of success
for the Cats

After last season's Cin-
derella run. Cat fans were
hungry for a bowl game.
Anything short of that
would disappoint many
backers of the Blue.

The Cats have not lived
up to expectations so far. and

some fans are grumbling.
Everyone seems so obsessed
with reaching a bowl that
routine wins aren't enough.

Somewhere along the
way, the fun was lost. It is
time for everyone to start en-
joying the game again.

The football season has
only 12 games, eight of
which remain. That means
only eight more times to
watch Jared Lorenzen
launch rockets with that can-
non of an arm. Eight more
times to watch Derek Abney
jet up and down the field
making kick coverage teams
look foolish.

The Cool Cats netted
three third period goals en
route to a 7-5 victory over
Tennessee Saturday night in
front of a standing-room
only crowd at the Lexington
Ice Center:

Forward Joe Obermeier
led the Cats offensively with
two goals and one assist, in-
cluding a score 46 seconds
into the final period that
gave the team the lead for

“(UT’s) goalie made a
good kick save on my first
shot but left the puck right
there for me,” Obermeier
said of the goal. “I took it
and just slammed it home. It
was an easy garbage goal.“

That goal brought the
momentum back to the Cats
after UT scored three goals
in the second period to tie
the contest at 4.

Cool Cats head coach
Mike Sosnowski said he was
proud of the way his players
didn‘t get down after the dis-
appointing second period
and came out of the locker
room ready to play.

“We played five good pe-
riods out of six this week-
end, which I was very happy
with." Sosnowski said.
“Every hockey team has a
bad period and we‘re no dif-
ferent. I wasn‘t surprised at
all at the way they fought
back. We’ve got a good group
of kids."

The players said they
were also pleased the other
team refused to stay down.

“Teams have a couple of
bad periods here and there.
but we didn’t let it get us
down," said forward Alex
