Unlike on the previous two occasions, this time Kentucky coach Jerry Claiborne was able to run off the field with his head held high, after his 'Cats upset No. 11 Georgia 16-10. The victory marked the first-ever win for Claiborne over Georgia's Vince Dooley. And not since 1977 had Kentucky defeated the Bulldogs in this annual conference battle. Kentucky will enter Saturday's game with Division 1-AA Southern Illinois with a 3-4 mark, 1-3 in Southeastern Conference play. Southern Illinois is coming off a 10-9 loss at the hands of rival Northern Illinois. Southern Illinois, 4-3, and Kentucky will kickoff their evening affair at 7:30 p.m at Commonwealth Stadium. After Saturday's game, the Wildcats have only three battles remaining on their schedule. On Nov. 5 Claiborne's squad will entertain Eric Jones and his Vanderbilt Commodores. Kickoff has been moved to 7:30 p.m. Next, will be the 'Cats' final home game of the season, as Galen Hall's Florida Gators come to Lexington for an afternoon visit. And the regular season finale will take place in Knoxville, (Nov. 19) against the struggling Tennessee Volunteers. Many experts believe the 'Cats have a golden opportunity to win their final four games, thus finishing with a 7-4 record. However, don't mention 'bowls' around Claiborne. All he's concerned with right now is a showdown with Southern Illinois. Please see pages 12-13 for more on last Saturday's upset special.

Georgia win should give UK needed shot in the arm
Never say never!
Just when many fans of the Kentucky football team were beginning to believe the 'Cats would never win a close game, the Big Blue rose to the occasion and carried an overjoyed Jerry Claiborne off the field Saturday afternoon.
Nothing could have been sweeter for the Kentucky program, which has needed a shot in the arm like the one it got.
Along with a 16-10 upset victory over Georgia came a renewed confidence in the Claiborne philosophy, a legitimate shot at a winning season and a somewhat longshot chance at a (whisper, whisper) postseason bowl if some other good fortune could follow.
In a season which most experts believe has the Southeastern Conference in a downspiral, it isn't all that impossible that UK just might win three more and possibly all four remaining games.
But first let's talk about Saturday.
It was to be a gloomy one. One controversy after another led up to the contest. Everyone around these parts knows the basketball allegations have completely overshadowed the football team. Up until Saturday, that wasn't all bad because there had been little to cheer about on the football field.
Then a few of the friends in the horse industry had been upset about moving the Georgia game from night to day to accommodate national television over Atlanta Superstation WTBS, thereby making the 'Cats and Keeneland go head-to-head.
Now that the game is history, we can say with candor the university made not only a wise decision but the only one it should have.
First of all, can you imagine what such an exciting upset victory on national television will mean to Claiborne on the recruiting trails this winter? As WTBS wrapped up the telecast, it showed the final seconds of the game, Claiborne being embraced by his assistants and players and the scoreboard. I don't care how many extra fans from Keeneland might have attended the game, they'll never match those scenes being shown coast-to-coast to millions of college football fans.
Plus, it was the biggest upset of the day and since the game was on WTBS, every other major network (ABC-TV, CBS-TV, ESPN and CNN) all picked up the highlights and telecast them throughout the weekend. There in the midst was Georgia product Alford Rawls' 48-yard touchdown run.
It's a recruiting plus you just don't get that often.
For WTBS, it was the third time this season UK has been shown and the Wildcats haven't disappointed. For UK, the third time was the charm.
Kentucky helped Auburn provide WTBS fans a great game back in September and then one of the station's most exciting games of the season was Alabama's 31-27 victory Oct. 1.
Kentucky's victory would still have been a great win had the game been
played at night, but consider a couple side effects: First of all, the upset would have gotten little publicity outside Kentucky because of early newspaper deadlines in the East. The game wouldn't have been over until after 10 p.m. By then, most newspapers already have their lead sports stories set up.
By it being an early afternoon game, the Kentucky upset was played as one of the major stories in almost all the papers.
As far as attendance goes, the crowd was listed at slightly more than 50,000, a figure which surprised even me. Considering that UK was coming off back-to-back losses and going against Keeneland, I figured it might be closer to 40,000. There was speculation that many Georgia fans might opt for the races instead of the game.
Judging from the Georgia section at Commonwealth Stadium, those Bulldog fans are true to their school. And as for Kentucky, it appeared the great multitude of missing fans were once again in the student section, where they have been missing from action for the past two or three years.
Keeneland, on the other hand, enjoyed a great attendance of over 21,000. All this leads us to the conclusion that there really aren't that many who cross over, maybe three or four thousand. In the end, neither group should have to alter its plans to accommodate the other. Both have valid reasons for daytime events.
With that in mind, I have to say Kentucky is going too far in trying to appease the racing people and putting its football fans to a far greater hardship next month for the Vanderbilt game.
The Vandy game is now set for 7:30 p.m. on Nov. 4. The game was originally set for 1:30 p.m., but because of the Breeder's Cup being staged in Louisville on that afternoon, UK said it was trying to cooperate with its friends in the industry so fans could attend both events.
To me, it would have made a little more sense if the Breeder's Cup was being staged in Lexington, but Louisville? Do we have to begin scheduling our football games around major events in Cincinnati now?
Let's put UK football first and foremost in its season and let's not worry about some other sport. Again, what a missed opportunity it would have been last Saturday if UK had not moved the game for national television. Nuf said?
? ? ?
Kentucky can now set its sights on a stretch run where Claiborne and his 'Cats can realisticly see the opportunity to win each and every game. That doesn't mean they'll win any of them, only that the opportunity is there.
The Wildcats might even be favored in each of them, but they cannot afford to take any for granted.
Southern Illinois is first on the line. A victory Saturday and UK is even at 4-4.
Again, you take nothing for granted.
After that come Vanderbilt and Florida at home before closing the season at Tennessee.
I can't go any further without admitting an accident which almost happened:
It was Saturday morning about 9:30 and while on the way to the office before the Kentucky-Georgia game and I had the radio dial turned to good ol' 590 WVLK, where you get nothing but Big Blue coverage on game day.
When UK assistant athletics director Gene DeFillippio made the comment that if the 'Cats could just pull off the Georgia upset, "we could be on our way to a bowl game," well, I forgot I was behind the wheel. Thankfully, there was no other vehicle within a half mile of my swerving.
I said to myself, sure, this fella has to put on a straight face and he is paid to promote the Big Blue, but B-O-W-L T-A-L-K, well, that's a little too strong.
Guess who was grinning from ear-to-ear after the final second ticked off the stadium clock?
Which leads us to Vanderbilt and Florida.
Each has been as equally unimpressive as they have been impressive this season. Vanderbilt has beaten the likes of Florida but lost to Ole Miss and Duke. Florida beat LSU but has lost to people like Memphis State and Vandy.
And the season finale is at Knoxville where the Vols are struggling to say the very least. Until last Saturday, Tennessee was winless. Johnny Majors' team finally conquered Memphis State 38-35 but it wasn't easy.
Prior to the season opener, less than a handful of experts expected anything but a disaster for UK in 1988. But strange things happen once you tee up the pigskin. Kentucky could still finish 3-8 on the season or it could wind up 7-4 or somewhere in between, but last Saturday's upset has surely sparked new life into this team and you could see it spread all over Jerry Claiborne's face.
? ? ?
One lady embraced another after the game in the Commonwealth Stadium pressbox after Saturday's game. They were Faye Claiborne and Barbara Dooley.
They've been friends for a long time, and always will be said Claiborne's wife.
"It was a tough loss for them," said Mrs. Claiborne, "I really feel bad for the Dooleys, they've been personal friends of ours for years. They run their program a lot like ours. I know how they felt today, but I told her that we needed this victory a lot worse than they did."
Somehow, I've got a feeling the Dooleys probably agreed. But it isn't all that simple.
Had Georgia won the game, the Bulldogs would have been a lock for a piece of the SEC championship. A victory would have given the Dawgs a 5-0
conference mark. With two games left against Florida and Auburn, Georgia no doubt would have finished at either 6-1 or 7-0. With everyone else already having at least one loss, Kentucky appeared to be the victim for the clincher.
Anytime you have a conference title on the line, you don't give an inch to your best friend, Jerry Claiborne or anyone else. But I'm sure if Dooley had to lose to someone, he'd much rather it be a Jerry Claiborne.
Footnote: Nice guys don't always finish last. They didn't Saturday.

The fallout from the additional 17 allegations from the NCAA toward the UK basketball program is still making news.
Many of you read where one portion of an allegation said that a university representative made a special trip to Lexington with a potential UK recruit for an interview with me to be published in this publication.
The NCAA said Bill Chupil transported Lawrence Funderburke and a friend to Lexington last school year for the sole purpose of being interviewed for this publication. The NCAA has asked UK to provide the NCAA with a copy of the paper containing the article and to explain my company's connection with the athletics department.
Well, you readers who have been subscribers to TCP for at least the past year know there is absolutely no truth to that rumor because there has never been a feature or interview on Funderburke published in this newspaper.
The problem I have with the NCCA in this matter, however, goes beyond that. What if I had interviewed the kid? Would that be a crime? No!
The fact is that Chupil did visit the TCP retail store where numerous items on many sports are sold. Chupil has been one of hundreds of sports fans who make purchases from our store each year. Hundreds of college basketball fans (not just UK because all state colleges are covered as well as the national high school scene) purchase our annual Kentucky Basketball Yearbook at our office each year. It was this reason Chupil had made this particular visit, according to him.
I hesitate to detail this matter because it really isn't any of the NCAA's business what I or my company does in the process of publishing a newspaper or running a retail operation.
But because of the insinuations, I feel you deserve this. The only regret I have is that I goofed as a reporter. I had the opportunity to seek an interview and publish an exclusive story but because I was so busy with other matters at the time, it simply didn't occur to me.
I apologize to you, our readers, for the oversight, but I assure you if another story idea pops into our office unex-[Continued on page 22] 4

Football is not the only thing Ray Gover is interested in; is a proven pursuer of other sports, big business
By Warren Havens
University of Kentucky receiver Ray Gover feels that he knows his opposition inside and out. Not just the coming weekend's opponent but any foe.
"I feel dominant over a defensive back because I've played their position," Gover says. "I think like a defensive back and I know what they're thinking. It gives me an advantage."
Gover, a fifth-year senior, spent his first three years at UK as a defensive back. The converted receiver is Kentucky's starter at the wideout position.
"It means a lot to me to be starting," Gover says. "I feel that I need to prove myself as a senior."
With seniority comes leadership. "He leads by example," notes Joe Phillips, UK's receivers coach. "The young receivers see him working hard and it rubs off on the younger players."
Kentucky assistant coach Jake Hallum believes Gover has acquired natural leadership qualities through summer internship work completed at the Chase Manhattan Bank in New York the past two summers. After football, Gover says he looks forward to working for Chase Manhattan in either New York or Washington, D.C.
? ? ?
Chip Garber, who's in charge of Kentucky's defensive backs, hated to see his pupil switched to offense, but knew his loss was the team's gain. "We decided to move Ray to receiver because of a shortage of receivers," Garber says. "We felt Ray had real good hands. He is a great athlete with good range because of his speed?'
"He's a helluva athlete," adds Phillips. "Moving from safety to wideout and ending up starting more games than Dee Smith really says something.
"I asked to change," Gover remembers. "I figured I had more of a chance to play on offense and could help the team out more."
Gover has sparked the Wildcats this season, averaging 16.3 yards per catch in UK's first six games of the 1988 campaign. This season also has provided Gover's personal highlight, a 44-yard touchdown reception against Alabama. The touchdown was the game's first score and spurred the 'Cats toward a 17-0 lead at intermission.
Phillips says Gover, who he calls a possession receiver, is getting his hands and holding on to most passes his way. He attributes this to Gover utilizing his hands more so than his body and surge of confidence, which comes through familiarity with the position. . Gover, who played both positions in high school, said the conversion was easier than his coaches might have thought. "It's like riding a bicycle," Gover said. "You never forget. I just had to get back into the flow of it. This year, it feels totally natural to me. It's like I never left it (receiving) and I'm very comfortable at this point."
Phillips also says the former safety is an expert at getting open. "If there's one guy you can count on to get open, it's Ray Gover. "He runs such good routes."
The flashy Gover explains his pass route proficiency in workman-like fashion. "It's a challenge to me to get open," Gover says.
"If you're going to run a pattern, you might as well do it as well as you can and make it worthwhile."
Phillips, a UK receiver in the early '80s, says that Gover is a different breed of pass catcher. His face glows when he mentions Gover's aggressiveness and physical style.
"He reminds me of me," Phillips says. "He's one of the more aggressive receivers in the Southeastern Conference. Plus he plays on all the special teams."
Gover's special teams chores this season have included making tackles and running back kicks.
Seeing plenty of action is nothing new for the senior. Gover has not missed a game in his career at Kentucky.
"I never stopped and noticed it until this year," he says. "I've only missed one practice and that's because I was ill. After the first year, time started to fly by. I don't know where it went. It's kind of unbelievable. But when I was a freshman, I never thought I'd see the day I'd be a senior in college. That first year at school is tough."
Phillips adds: "Coming out of the backfield to block, he blocks as well as some of the running backs."
"It's embarrassing for someone to knock me down," Gover says. "A lot of my blocking abilities come from my experience at defensive back. It's not hard (blocking) but you have to want to do it and you have to want to be physical."
Gover's pro-type frame makes him a nice target for Kentucky's quarterbacks. At 6-foot-3, 202 pounds, Gover has been timed in the 40-yard dash at 4.6
"I figure if you don't get them, they're going to get you. And I'm not going to be gotten. They have to be a good one to get the best of me. Not too many are going to be as big as me. And if they are as big as me, they're going to have to be extra fast."
With his physical attributes and his mental desire for the rough and tumble world on the gridiron, it's only fitting that Gover enjoys being on the special team unit as well. "I love it," says Gover. "It's exciting, it happens fast and it's real physical."
He also was a high jump participant in high school, regularly clearing 6T1" as a sophomore. In a giant midwestern meet where prep champions from five states gathered, the Dayton, Ohio, product captured first place, setting a personal best-7' V2".
And then there's Raynard Gover, the basketball player.
? ? ?
"I always had a problem of being real skinny," he says.
The slender yet solid senior has added 30 pounds to his frame since his high school hoop days where he was an all-area performer.
Gover's statistics as a senior lured college recruiters even from Big 10 schools to see him play. "My senior year, I averaged 22 points, nine rebounds and two dunks."
"I saw him play basketball and he dunked it anyway you wanted him to dunk it," said Hallum. "I was at a track meet where he jumped 611". I just wanted to see his movements and really let him know of our interests in him.
"In that game, I saw him take off from the free throw (line) and extended to slam it home."
Gover's athleticism carries on a family tradition as his father, Harold, was a three-sport performer at Bluefield State in West Virginia. There, he met Ray's mother, Par-thenia. She was on the performing dance team, Bluefield's equivilent to UK's Dance Cats. She now teaches at Dunbar High School in Dayton, Ohio, a cross-town rival to Ray's Jefferson High School.
Gover starts on two teams in summer basketball leagues in New York City, where he lived until he was nine. The leagues, tournaments and pick-up games in New York include the area's talented college basketball
Following end of football season,
players who, like Gover, have returned home for the summer. The likes of Atlanta's Dominique Wilkins has even graced the league. Thus, Gover crashes the boards with the best of 'em. "I definitely hold my own," he says.
After the football season, the senior mentions he might play basketball for Kentucky, where graduation and hardship have depleted Eddie Sutton's thoroughbred stable. In the offseason, Gover also plays pick-up games with UK's basketball team where he has impressed many of the squad's members.
"He could definitely help us," said junior guard Derrick Miller. "He can really get up."
According to Gover, he was encouraged to play basketball earlier in his collegiate career at UK but opted to devote himself to football. "Right now I'm concentrating on football. After the season, I'll give it some thought."
? ? ?
If Gover does not make head lines in football, basketball or business, the handsome talent then has a modeling career to fall back on. Gover said his height, his facial structure with its high cheek bones, and stern look are what agencies have told him are his attributes.
As a teen, Gover was nominated to participate in the Mr. Teen USA competition in Minneapolis, Minn. "I won two, two-year
Gover may give hoops a shot
contracts with two different agencies but I didn't pursue it because of football. With the connections I've made and people I know in the business, I could make a serious go of it."
Gover chose Kentucky and coach Jerry Claiborne's disciplined program over Pittsburgh, USC, Notre Dame and Penn State. He was recruited by nearly everybody. "I knew Kentucky was more disciplined than the other schools," he states. "I was kind of wild coming out of high school and I didn't need anybody to just let me go."
He describes himself as a "social-type." When the prospect of playing professional football was brought up, Gover said he would "love the experience, for the football part and the social part."
As you can probably tell Gover enjoys a lot of things life has to offer. "I like different things. I just don't want a boring outlook on life. When I get older, I won't say I'll be wild but I won't be sitting around at home because you just grow old that way. Neither side of my family is like that. My grandmother is the type that will still dance with me.
"If it looks interesting enough, I'll try it," he says. And Gover's track record shows that whatever he might be interested in, he'll succeed.

UK's Ralph Kercheval put the foot' into football
He's been called 'Babe Ruth of UK football'
Since the inception of modern football at the University of Kentucky almost 100 years ago (1891), Wildcat teams have featured many multi-talented performers who, among other things, really put the "foot" in football, but
Russell Rice
Cats' Pause Columnist
no Wildcat has surpassed the overall feats (or feets?) of Ralph Kercheval, who almost six decades ago made his mark as perhaps the greatest UK kicker of all time.
Kercheval, now semi-retired after many years of managing thoroughbred farms and training horses, was born at Salt Lick but came at an early age to Lexington, where he was coached at Henry Clay High School by John Heber, former Wildcat star (1916-17-18-19-20) who called Kercheval the best kicker he had ever seen.
"HE WAS A NATURAL BORN PUNTER," Heber said. "I didn't teach him a thing. In fact I tried to stop him from taking two or three steps before kicking and it hurt his effectiveness. So I just moved him back a few yards. He was great when I first saw him. I suppose he taught himself."
As part of his punting technique. Kercheval seemed to throw the ball downward. He once explained that he held the ball with one hand on top and a little to the side, which allowed the left arm to swing as if he were in stride and gave him excellent balance.
"Even as a kid I could kick the ball 55 or 60 yards," he said. "When I was about 12 or 13, we used to go over to where the Kentucky players were punting. We'd get behind the goal, in case they missed, and shag balls. Sometimes they'd let us punt. I used to kick it over their heads. They'd get a bang out of that.
"We used to climb over the fence (at old Stoll Field), hide
and get lost during the games. That's when they put up barbed wire over the cyclone fence. The players had to walk through a garden area from the dressing room to the playing field, and we'd often walk with them, hiding under their blankets. When we got inside, they would turn us loose."
One of those Wildcat players was the flamboyant John Simms "Shipwreck" Kelly, backfield standout and a punter in his own right who would play one year (1931) with Kercheval at UK and then draft the Wildcat punter two years later when Kelly was a player and part-owner of the Brooklyn Dodgers pro grid team.
KERCHEVAL, ALSO AN OFFENSIVE BACK, played a secondary role his freshman season as the Kittens overran six opponents and his punting services seldom were needed; however, he kicked the extra points.
As a third-string fullback behind the Phipps brothersTom and Jack of Ashlandhis sophomore year, Kercheval failed to see action in a 19-0 opening victory over Maryville. He was languishing on the bench late in the first half against Washington & Lee the following Saturday when the Wildcats were assessed a 15-yard penalty that put them deep in their own territory. Wildcat coach Harry damage looked down the bench and yelled: "Kercheval, go in there and kick it."
"I caught the ball real well and kicked it 75 yards in the air," Kercheval said. "I remember, as a kid would, everybody rose in their seats on both sides of the field, and I couldn't help but see and hear them. When we went back to the dressing room, Gamage sat beside me and said,: 'I'm going start you this half, and we're going to kick every time on first down.' "
. - 'HI mt
After a 75-yard punt in the air vs. Washington & Lee, Kercheval was a fixture in the lineup
After playing well in that game, which UK won 45-0, the multi-talented Kercheval was assured a starting position for the remainder of his career at UK.
John McGill, former sports editor of The Lexington Herald, wrote that Kercheval could be called the "Babe Ruth of Kentucky football because his punts linger so vividly in fens' memories that his all-around ability is often overlooked."
KERCHEVAL'S RECORD for the most punts in one game is 17 against Alabama in 1931, a game won by the Tide 9-7. On a free kick, he booted the ball 65 yards to the Tide 15. He rushed for 161 yards in a 7-0 loss to Duke. He tried his first quick-kick, a 58-yarder against Tennessee, and punted one 68 yards out of bounds on the Vol four.
In the final game of his sophomore season, he ran nine yards for a TD to beat Florida 7-2 at Jacksonville. His nine punts averaged 48 yards, one traveling 66 yards.
"We had them beat with fourth down and seven or eight inside our own 35," Shipwreck Kelly recalled years later. "In the huddle, I told (captain) Babe Wright that I wanted to see Kercheval kick one more time before the season ended. Ralph took the ball and kicked it out of
the end zone and into the bay. That was the only time I've ever seen a ball kicked out of a stadium."
According to available records, Kercheval finished that season with 64 punts for 2,627 yards, a 41.0 average in those days when the ball was, as Kercheval recalls, "shaped like a pumpkin."
Injuries kept Kercheval out of the Duke and Alabama games his junior season, when he unofficially punted 69 times for 2,763 yards with three of the punts traveling 60 yards or better. He set school and national records the following season with 101 punts for 4,394 yards, a 41.8 average.
In a 7-6 victory over Georgia Tech in 1933, he had a 77-yard punt, a school record that remained on the books until Randy Jenkins kicked a 78-yarder in 1983. Later in the game, he kicked a 73-yarder, going against the wind, and averaged 45 yards on 16 kicks. He also kicked the winning point and made two key defensive plays.
ANOTHER MEMORABLE GAME occurred midway of that season was against Cincinnati in the Queen City, where the Wildcats and Bearcats, both undefeated, met before a record 16JXX) fens in Nippert Stadium.
