I agree completely. I never saw a connection between the two either. Maybe we should ask rgunslinger, he's the one who brought head to head record into this.
As far as conference success goes, yes UofL has had very weak competition compared to UK's. But you can't just assume that UK would have done better than UofL had they been in UofL's conference situations. In fact, this is where head to head record does contribute to the conversation. And UofL leads 10-8 in the modern series, which would lead one to believe that UK wouldn't have fared any better (potentially worse) in the Conference USA/Big East than UofL did.

Huh? When did I assume that?
Every UK fan that criticizes UofL's success in easy conferences indirectly implies that UK would have done better in those same conferences. If you weren't implying that, then why criticize UofL in the first place?
10-8 in an annual series over 18 years is hardly a significant advantage of one over the other, and certainly not a basis to conclude that over that time span, one program has been clearly superior to the other. In my opinion, it supports the view that UL would fare about as well playing SEC's schedule, year in and year out as UK has fared, and vice versa.
Actually, if we look back over the last 14 years, the programs relative strength is relatively similar, with UL having a slight advantage that has been closing over the last 5 years. That advantage was created primarily by the Louisville success in 2004, 2005 and 2006.

ignorance of reality... pop a pill

Ignorance of reality? Haha care to elaborate? I feel like I've been pretty reasonable.
WTH was edited? I don't remember typing anything other than what is shown. lol
For example, when you said this... "In the modern series, UofL leads 10-8."
I had to remind you of the most modern series (UK-4, UL-1). I had to go back and correct myself (I said 5-1)... but I was prematurely counting tomorrows victory.
Just keeping it real.

Thank you professor. However, UofL has proven in the modern series to at least be equal to Uk without the luxury of sec dollars and the recruiting advantage!!!

I think it's much more reasonable to consider the modern series to be the games from 1994 to present as opposed to the games from 2006 to present. There's a difference between picking an arbitrary year in the middle of a series, and picking the rebirth of a series after a 70 year hiatus. But if you want to talk about stats that are actually relevant, then look no farther back than last year. These are two very young teams.
Louisville had won 7 of freakin 8 and 9 of 12 before Jurich made the worst mistake of his life in hiring Kraps. I cant say it enough. Kraps isnt coming out of that tunnel. No matter how badly you want him to. You have about 20 hours before that series goes to 11-8. I can understand you wanting so desperately to cling onto those first 6 wins when UofL was a club team nearly 100 years ago. Your university and fans started clamoring about your Sagarin National Title shortly after UofL's Orange Bowl victory. So sad. You sweat us so hard it's kinda funny.
Clock is ticking....
No use in trash talk at this point. The players will decide the game tomorrow, not message board fans.
I've never felt the need or desire to post on UL's board... must be sad to need to come here to try and start crap and get some kind of warm feeling up your leg. Guess what, we don't like you, don't respect you, and could not care less about your pathetic school or program.
Wannabedynasty......I'm still waiting on your take on the series records....
Players may decide the game, but the fans ALWAYS decide when it's time for trash talk... for me, it's 365/24/7
Nothing was edited out.
I just added an opinion to your post
I am who I am, said he who is. 15,235
We dont care if you like us. Were rivals. Youre not supposed to like us. As for respect...we will make you respect us. We'll take every bit that you have today and remind you where your football program stands in this state. No hard feelings....it's just how it is. It's D-day baby.
Series records mean nothing with Kentucky. Your program is notorious for running scared when you arent winning. You tried it in football and the state legislature had to step in. I GUARANTEE you will try it again. You tried it in volleyball even. You wouldnt even play us during Denny's prime. Scared ****less. Watch this video and it'll tell you all you need to know about what cowards you are. You also lead the series against the Miami Hurricanes in football too. So what. You had a commanding lead on them until Miami won 3 straight. Then guess what happened....
Enjoy your day. I know I will.
Its funny to watch Denny Crum thow verbal jabs and Joe B Hall duck and cover.
Come on and grow up a little. The reason many dont want to play UL is that we can nothing from winning the game, only UL does. I would drop the game as well because we gain zero by beating UL, but the game means tons to you all.
Why play under those circumstances? And please dont start with the debate that we gain something by playing a Big East team that doesnt play a single top 25 team all year. Even if UL wins every game this year it means zero, and you will be the laughing stock of all BCS bowl games.
We aren't scared. We just gain nothing by beating you other than a W. We win and we are supposed to cause you are just another weak team from the BE conference. We lose and we are dogged for losing to a weak team from the BE conference. It doesn't help in recruiting either. Nothing to gain and everything to lose. You all put everything into the UK match-ups while we view you as just another game.
We will make you realize that you suck and we are still the better program by beating your chump @ team at your place.
Ok I gave you overnight to sleep it off. You all should send Charlie a thank you card for pulling Teddy in the 3rd freaking quarter. Could have easily been 47-14. That was a walk in the park. But but but you lose 4 of 6 receivers...but but but you lost your #1 tackler....but but but I tried to warn you. Im just glad it was on national tv for the world to see. Chris Fowler just tweeted he watched the replay of "Louisville's pounding of rival Kentucky." Good times.To say this game means nothing to you is rubbish. Uk fans wouldnt trade a win over Louisville for a bowl game.
Good luck the rest of the season. Had fun. Now go out and beat Western for the #2 spot in the state.
UK lost, but we will ALWAYS be #1 in this state... Why? Because WEAREUK!!!
I'm glad you busted a nut yesterday...
