Lady Kats
Capture Cross Country Title
Kentucky's phenomenal freshmen ran away with the women's Southeastern Conference Championship in Oxford, Miss., earlier this month. Also, UK's Richard Ede took second place in the men's race and Kentucky's Don Weber was named women's Coach of the Year.
The Lady Kats compiled a low score of 33 points to easily outdistance second-place Alabama's 93. Tennessee was third with 104.
Alabama's Evelyn Adiru won the 5,000-meter (3.1-mile) run in 16 minutes, 47 seconds, followed by Tennessee's Alisa Harvey in 16:49. But UK freshmen Patricia Padorno, Sherry Hoover and Becky Gallivan placed three-four-five, respectively, finishing within five seconds of one another. Padorno is from Madrid, Spain, Hoover from Woodburn, Ind., and Gallivan from Marion, N.Y.
UK junior Audrey Pierce was ninth overall and freshman Lisa Breiding was 12th.
Kentucky's No. 6 runner, sophomore Elisa Frosini, placed 15th, and freshman Lynne Segreti was 25th. No other team had more than two finishers in the top 15.
Brian Abshire of Auburn won the men's 8,000-meter race in 23:32, followed by Ede, a UK second-semester freshman, in 23:41.
David Kraffur's third-place finish helped Tennessee to the team championship with 44 points. The Vols also had Ted Goodlake in sixth, David Giles ninth, and John Young 10th.
Auburn was runner-up with 79, just two points ahead of Florida and LSU. Kentucky was sixth with 146. Andy Redmond, UK's No. 1 runner last season, has been sidelined most of the season by a stress fracture and did not run in the event.
Weber, a 1972 University of Kentucky graduate, has coached UK distance runners since 1978 and was named head coach in 1984. He had previous coaching experience at Louisville Stuart High School, Murray State University, Pittsburg State and the Ecuador Olympic program.
The SEC champs and its outstanding coach were honored at midcourt in Rupp Arena prior to UK's opener against Northwestern Stale.

UT's Majors All Smiles
Following are Johnny Majors' postgame comments after his Tennessee hall club beat Kentucky 42-0 last Saturday at Commonwealth Stadium:
Question: Could you comment on the game?
Majors: I told the team before the game that I had a lot of confidence in it. It has overcome a lot of adversity to continue playing well Saturday after Saturday. This is the best disciplined team we have had in several years. The practices during the last two weeks have been as fine as anyone could have. Our defense was as good as any team could have, anytime, anywhere. Our
defense was opportunistic. This, along with no mistakes and no turnovers, were big factors. We showed patience, perserverence and grit. (Daryl) Dickey showed great poise and excellent leadership. The team has rallied around him. We didn't change the offense in the second half. We just executed better. We remained patient. (Bill) Ransdell is an excellent quarterback. He has one of the sharpest, strongest arms in the country. I was not surprised that he kept coming back into the game. He is a real competitor. I plan to savor this victory today. Tomorrow we will start getting ready for Vanderbilt. J/cmemAe^ SO, (^6S
Cats And Sutton Off To Flying Start
With his first game as head coach of the Kentucky Wildcats firmly tucked away in the victory column, Eddie Sutton now looks toward the future. Those opening-game jitters are long gone. No doubt, any fears of an opening game disaster have also subsided. It's onward and upward.
To the sunny skies of Hawaii.
Now, you talk about getting your era off on the right track. Not many people have the luxury of spending a week in the beautiful state of Hawaii. So, the Kentucky Wildcats plan to make full use of this vacation as Sutton hopes the holiday season will provide a couple wins as well as a bountiful week of fun in the sun, a traditional Kentucky Thanksgiving Day dinner and inspiration for a great season ahead.
Kentucky's win over Northwestern State could be considered a routine opener. It was impressive enough to be excite folks about the future, but contained enough mistakes and errors that Sutton and his staff won't have to worry about getting their players' attention in future practice sessions.
As expected, the anticipated improvement came from the guards who are much more involved in the offense than in recent years at UK. There is, perhaps, not as much involvement in the low post play, but then again, that could be because the development of both Cedric Jenkins and Robert Lock has not arrived as quickly as Sutton believed it would.
If there was one non-surprise it was Northwestern State's defensive play on Kenny Walker, but he's getting use to that treatment, having two solid years of such combat treatment in the SEC. Northwestern State Coach Don Beasley (formerly Hugh Durham's assistant at Georgia) brought along the Walker file.
Although Walker played only 26 minutes before leaving the game with cramped leg muscles, he still scored 13 points and hit all five of his field goal attempts.
As Kentucky ends its week's stay in Hawaii and prepares to return home next Tuesday for Cincinnati, it's safe to say the Wildcats will be one of the nation's top fifteen or twenty teams by the season's end. And there are going to be some mighty exiciting contests before this winter turns into spring.
To say Kentucky's 42-0 bombing at the hands of Sugar Bowl-bound Tennessee was a disaster would almost be an understatement, had it not been for a gutty first half defensive performance by the Wildcats.
Even that was wiped out by the Vols express in the third period which turned all orange on one play when quarterback Daryl Dickey connected with Tim McGee for a 37-yard scoring bomb over UK defensive back Russell Hairston. The play first appeared to be a sure interception for Hairston, then an incomplete pass. When the bomb turned out to be a touchdown, all hopes for a UK upset went down the drain.
At the time, UK was trailing 6-0 and appeared to have stopped the Vols on their first drive of the third period. Instead, it began an avalanche which had the Vols leading by 28-0 by the end of the quarter. A controversial two-point conversion made the score 14-0 and for all practical purposes the game was history.
Kentucky experienced almost a duplicate, in reverse, of a year ago at Neyland Stadium in Knoxville when the Vols coughed up a fumble
early in the game to provide UK with an early 7-0 lead. UK returned the favor Saturday when Mark Logan fumbled in the first series.
But thanks to a determined defense, UK forced Tennessee to settle for a field goal and a 3-0 lead after three plays from scrimmage failed to net a first down. Another field goal of 49 yards gave Johnny Majors' Vols a 6-0 lead at intermision.
That was an omen of what was to come in the second half. Kentucky muffed a couple scoring opportunities in the first half as a result of mistakes and some costly penalties. After two quarters, Kentucky trailed by 6-0, but led in most all the major statistical charts.
With the SEC championship and a Sugar Bowl trip on the line, Majors did what a smart coach would do. He junked his conservataive first half gameplan, probably dumped it somewhere in the locker room on his way out and told Daryl Dickey to go upstairs. That, the Vols did, did often and successful.
By the start of the fourth quarter, the outcome was well within hand, and only a Vanderbilt miracle can now stop Johnny Majors from leading those Big Orange fans to the promised land.
There's no doubt Tennessee has earned its way to New Orleans, as far as Kentucky is concerned. Non-believers are scarce in the Bluegrass State today.
While the 42-0 whipping will haunt this 1985 team in all the UK history books of years to come, this Wildcat team will also go down as a mysterious one.
Sure, quarterback Bill Ransdell was injured much of the season, but there were huge caution signs from the opening kick-off and continued all along the pike. Bowling Green has proven it is one of the better college teams in America, but UK did not play well on that September day.
Unfortunately, UK reached its peak before the halfway point, when the Cats upset a so-so Clemson team and a so-so Mississippi State club at home back in early October. It hasn't been the same since.
And it's very surprising. For the past three years, this fall was to have been the peak of the Jerry Claiborne era at Kentucky. I remember back to that 0-10-1 season when coaches urged patience and pointed toward 1985 as THE year. Even two years ago and again last October, UK coaches said 1985 would be the best. But it wasn't.
What went wrong?
It would be easy to write 1985 off to injuries and bad luck. True, both contributed greatly. But something else was lacking. Claiborne may have identified the disease early when he was concerned about this club not having a personality like last season.
And that's the troubling angle. This Kentucky team had twenty seniors on the roster. Most coaches relish the opportunity to have a large senior class because it means a large number of players will give 110 percent to go out on a winning note.
That's one of the reasons why I believed Kentucky had a good chance at knocking off Tennessee last Saturday. Boy, was I wrong! For a half, it appeared most of the Kentucky players had that certain "look" in their eyes. It quickly disappeared on one long defensive mistake in the third quarter.
Did the Wildcats quit?
That's difficult to say because players seldom quit when Jerry Claiborne is around. Yet, the final score gives every indication that Kentucky did, in fact, quit right in the middle of the third period.
Did Kentucky get too fat on its success of the past couple seasons with back-to-back bowl appearances? Did the Wildcats think winning would come easy?
It's for sure no one takes UK for granted these days. It's likewise, for sure, Kentucky will have to earn wins by their performance on the field and not in the prediction columns, regardless of the opposition.
Kentucky isn't back to square one, at least the one Kentucky occupied after that 0-10-1 year. But Claiborne, his staff and most assurdly the Wildcats will spend many long, lonely cold nights this winter, wondering what went wrong in 1985.
HITS AND MISSES . . . More than just the normal local and state media covered the Kentucky-Northwestern State game Friday night for a couple reasons. First, it was Eddie Sutton's first official game as new head f boss of the Kentucky Wildcats. Secondly, there was a large group of writers already in town for the showdown between Kentucky and Tennessee the following day. Entering the game, Tennessee was on the verge of winning the SEC championship and a berth to the Sugar Bowl. Many of the South's top sports writers took in the hoop game for a double-dip . . . Some of the first fall-out from the recent allegations that alumni and boosters gave cash and gifts to former UK basketball players has already taken place. One UK source says Dr. Elmer Prewitt. a Corbin physician who has been a long-time supporter of the UK program, was told he could not make the trip to Hawaii with the UK team this week after he had already been signed up. Prewitt was one of the individuals named in the Lexington Herald-Leader's story back in October as allegedly giving money to players when they were playing at UK. Reportedly, Sutton's office was told to inform Dr. Prewitt that he would not be permitted to go, but the same source said Sutton returned a message to his superiors, saying that he (Sutton) wasn't involved in any of the incidents and that such action should not come from him. That's when the matter was handled by another official of the UKAA . . . New coach Eddie Sutton has his own rules and conduct code for the Wildcats, and while they may not be as lengthy as some, they are pretty strict and to the point. They are: "Dress appropriately. There will be no alcoholic drinking. There will be no smoking. Be on time for all appointments and meetings. Everyone will eat breakfast together." And what about all those wild rumors about no curfew? Well, his hours are fairly reasonable. Players must be in by 11:30 p.m. Monday through Thursday. Friday and Saturday, the players are free until 1:30 a.m. . . For years, Kentucky has received more than its share of bad publicity, sometimes through no fault of its own. Some officials are calling a spade, a spade, and it's about time. Like assistant sports information director Brad Davis who has pointed out in his pregame statement to the media that UK would like to serve the media a full meal tit' Hupp Arena like its'dbes at'Commonwealth
Staidum. but it cannot because the Lexington Center won't allow the UK catering service to perform the function likes it does at the football stadium which the University operates. In this particular situation, the Lexington Center is totally out-of-line while UK gets all the bad publicity for not providing decents meals while the LCC allows other caterers for such events as the state high school basketball tournament. It would be a nice move by the Civic Center to reconsider its decision. Davis also pointed out that the University (because of contractual agreements) must pay the Civic Center $3 per game for each press parking space and that UK even has to purchase game programs from the Civic Center for the media and both the home and visiting teams. When the Civic Center contract was negotiated, all rights to the game programs went the direction of Rupp Arena. I don't know who did the negotiating for UK, but I wouldn't want him pleading my case for freedom . . . There were some sad faces in the Commonwealth Stadium press box Saturday for more than two quarters as Tennessee struggled to a 6-0 lead while LSU was losing to Notre Dame 7-0 at the half. Those long faces belonged to a couple Sugar Bowl officials who obviously are eyeing a tremendous challenge in selling their New Year's Day bowl to the television spectactors this winter. You could say their frowns softened considerably as the game wore on in the third period . . . Quite frankly, Tennessee's new-found success on the big-time level (we talking about major bowl talk, folks) is good for the SEC, the state of Tennessee and Dixie football. For years, the Vols have been performing far below the level it should be. With massive Neyland Stadium and a state which is devoted to football as much as Kentucky is to basketball, it's been a bit disappointing to see the Vols slip from the high standards Tennessee use to enjoy in the good ole days. That 42-0 score certainly would have been a bit more pleasant to UK fans had it read the other way around, but it's now time for its Kentucky neighbors to pull for the Vols next week. That's not to say UK fans should take sides against Kentucky's friends in Nashville. It's just that here's an opportunity for Tennessee to reach the promised land for the first time since 1969 when the Vols won the SEC. It will also be the first time since 1971 that the Vols will get to play in one of the truly major (no pun intended) bowls. Good luck, Vols ... A few months ago, a TCP reader wrote to say some fans resented the University of Kentucky including liquor advertisements in the UK Football Press Guide which is also used in recruiting as copies are sent to high school prospects. UK sports information director Russell Rice said at the time, that the advertisement was published because of a mix-up he was unaware of. The new UK basketballs Press Guide for the media contains no such advertisements, Rice pointed out recently . . . The controversial new radio contract for rights to the UK football and basketball broadcasts will awarded within the next couple weeks. Insiders say the bidding will probably go down to either the current holder, the Kentucky Radio Network or Host Communications. One outside college radio expert who use to live in Kentucky says he believes UK will probably receive a high bid which will be mind-boggling. The ex-radio man says he believes the Kentucky Network will offer a huge bid because he figures the UK
[Continued On Page 26] ^^^^^
If one play can determine a game then Daryl Dickey's 37-yard touchdown aerial to Tim McGee was the straw that broke Kentucky's back. Dickey's third quarter TD strike opened a close struggle as Tennessee went on to massacre the Kentucky Wildcats 42-0 before a crowd of 57,160 at Commonwealth Stadium.
The defeat marked the worst loss ever by a coach: Jerry Claiborne UK squad. Last season the Wildcats were uphended by Georgia, 37-7 in Lexington, which was previously Claiborne's worst setback.
"This was one of the most embarassing losses I've been associated with," remarked Claiborne. "I thought we played real good in the first half." We moved the ball well in the first half but couldn't put any points on the board."
Suffering its fifth loss in its last six games Kentucky ends the 1985 campaign with a 5-6 mark. Tennessee on the other hand can look to a Sugar Bowl date with the Miami Hurricanes if it can beat Vanderbilt this week. UT's record now stands at 7-1-2.
"I told the team before the game that I had a lot of confidence in it," said Volunteer mentor Johnny Majors. "It has overcome a lot of adversity to continue playing well Saturday after Saturday. This is the best disciplined team we have had in several years."
Dickey finished the day hitting on 11 of 17 passes for 182 yards and three touchdowns. McGee, UT's big play man, hauled in five passes from the fifth-year senior netting 108 yards. Eight other Volunteer receivers caught a pass each.
The Big Orange's ground game turned on the juices in the second half as UT rushed for 147 yards on 23 attempts. UT's offensive line deserved plenty of the credit as it opened hole after hole for runners like freshman Jeff Powell (16 carries  88 yards) and freshman Keith Davis (11 carries  79 yards).
After gaining 69 and 57 yards in the first half, Mark Higgs and Mark Logan were completely ineffective in the final 30 minutes of play. Both backs finished the game with 72 yards apiece, as Higgs compiled two yards (on three attempts) and Logan 15 yards (on two tries) in the second half.
Ransdell, who had thrown for 1,670 yards in eight games, was left battered afterwards. Playing on a bad knee, the junior hit on 11 of 19 passes for only 74 total yards.
Williams Converges With UT's Powell
Tailback Mark Higgs On Course
Kentucky entered the contest knowing that the third quarter had given the boys in blue and white trouble throughtout the entire season. Things weren't any different on this day.
Before its final contest Kentucky had been outplayed in the third stanza, 67-44. You can now make that 89^4.
Tennessee took the second half kickoff and marched 72 yards in eight plays for the score.
On third down-and-three from UK's 49, Dickey, who went back to pass, rambled 18 yards before sliding on the 31. Following two plays and an offensive holding call, Dickey dialed a long distance call to McGee.
Linebacker Jeff Kremer was in hot pursuit of Dickey, but the Vols' signal caller escaped the rush and heaved a bomb for McGee. The 5-foot-10 receiver was battling one-on-one coverage from safety Russell Hairston on the goal line. McGee, however, stepped in front of his man and leaped for the catch. Coming down on the three yard line, McGee again faked Hairston out of his shoes and easily made it into the end zone for the score.
Leading 12-0, Tennessee decided to go for two. Powell took the handoff, but fumbled the ball. UT's Tim Hendrix recovered the ball in the end zone for the successful two-point conversion.
Kentucky's players and coaches were somewhat upset when one official, who was right in front of the play, had ruled the play dead in favor of the host team. The call, however, was reversed.
Majors' club then scored the next three times it had possession of the football.
McGee was the recipient of Tennessee's third TD when Dickey spotted him wide open in the right corner for a 12-yard scoring reception.
Trailing 21-0, kickoff returner Cornell Burbage added some life into the Kentucky contingents by waiting for his blocks and racing down the right sidelines 48 yards. If not for Vol kicker Carlos Reveiz' tackle on the UT 39 then Burbage would have scored.
Given good field position Ransdell and troops could not muster enough offense to gain even one first down. On fourth-and-seven Ransdell hit Eric Pitts. . .but for only five yards.
Nine plays later from the Wildcat 18 Dickey lofted a perfect pass to wingback Joey Clinkscales in the end zone, who had beaten senior Carmichael Caldwell.
Reveiz' point-after-attempt made the score 28 to zip with 2:37 remaining in the third quarter.
Fighting for anything it could get, Kentucky started to mount a drive toward the tail end of the third quarter. From the UT 28, meanwhile, Tennessee's pass-defense arose to the occasion as UK's QB threw two incompletions and was sacked fiercely by left tackle Robby Scott.
Dickey capped off an 80-yard, 11-play march, by rolling out to the right corner for a one-yard gallop.
Tennessee's final touchdown was set up when Chris White picked off a Kevin Dooley pass and ran 16-yards all the way to Kentucky's six yard line. Three plays later tailback Pete Panuska followed his line's blocking and easly scored from seven yards.
Reveiz' PAT with 41 ticks remaining on the Commonwealth Stadium scoreboard ended the onslaught, 42-0. J&f/emAer SO, /ytfS
Claiborne's postgame statements were exactly correct  UK deserved a better fate than it did, trailing 6-0. By looking at the halftime stats you'd figure Kentucky would be in the driver's scat. . .not Tennessee. The Wildcats outgained the Vols in: first downs (nine to four); yards rushing (131 to 77); total net yards (142-70), and total plays (34 to 28).
Logan's fumble on the first play from scrimmage didn't help things, however, as UT was in range (UK 29) for Reveiz. The Wildcats' defense yielded only five yards on Tennessee's first three Dlavs. Reveiz, whose brother Fuad Reveiz is kicking for the Miami Dolphins, successfully booted a 42-yarder with a strong wind at his back.
A 21-yard clipping penalty on Kentucky's next scries forced a first-and-31 situation for the Cats on their 25. Receiver Tim Jones got back most of the yardage by catching a pass over the middle for 18 yards. And on third-and-eight, Ransdell went back to pass. . .looked and looked before hitting a diving Logan for the first down.
Five plays later Kentucky was threatening to score, but Ransdell was sacked for an eight-yard loss on the Vols' 27. Joe Worley's 44-yard attempt was long enough but wide to the left.
The Wildcats only other opportunity came following a 12-yard run by Logan to midfield. On the very next play Higgs veered to the left only to have the ball knocked from his grasps and into the hands of left tackle Richard Cooper.
Tennessee's second three-pointer of the day came when Reveiz' 49-yard attempt inched across the goal posts with 11:02 remaining in the second period.
Claiborne Trying To Fire Up Cats
From The Locker Room
(About Tennessee's offensive line)
Dumbauld: They 'position-blocked' us real well. We tried to run stunts inside but they kept us from running them. They were cutting us off. It wasn't like they were overpowering us. . .they just cut us off pretty good. We just lost that pressure from the outside.
(About Daryl Dickey being able to avoid Jeff Kremer's rush and throw the 37-yard scoring pass to Tim McGee)
Dumbauld: He just missed the tackle; those kind of things happen. Russell (Hairston) went for the interception and missed it.
(About the Volunteers' offensive attack)
Dumbauld: They were a similiar offense to Florida. They had a good game plan.
(About UK's ineffectiveness in the third quarter)
Dumbauld: For some reason we've been weak in the third quarter, and it's been like that all year. We lose our intensity for some reason and I don't know why. I wish I knew why because we would have been a whole different team.
(About how he felt at halftime, trailing only 6-0)
Dumbauld: We felt that if we could get the offense moving a little bit we would be in good shape. They had only run 23 plays offensively in the whole first half. . .and they only had six points. The defense was playing tough, then I don't know (what happened). We just couldn't get things going. The third quarter killed us.
(About if Tennessee was the best team he had played against this season)
Ransdell: That's hard to access; you can look at the score (42-0) and say they are. But it's 6-0 at halftime and we're moving the ball down the field and doing what ever we want to do  we just don't get any points. If we just put some points on the board it would give the defense something to work with.
(About the game)
Ransdell: We just didn't execute. We just didn't get any big plays, offensively. It has got to come, you know?
(About the future)
Logan: I'm looking forward to next year now. This summer, I'll be a senior next year, I'll just try to work harder and harder. I'm going to just make myself better, because you can always be better. You can always learn something else to make yourself a better person or a better athlete.
(About if he was disappointed with his season)
Logan: No, I wasn't disappointed with the season. I had read in the paper where George Adams, in all-purpose yards, had 1.000-plus yards on 301 attempts. I had a 1,000 or so (yards) on 201 attempts. I was pretty pleased with that. I didn't really know about this statistic until it came out in the paper. I was doing, better than
