Jsence's Old Kentucky HomeUPDATED: 12/19/2011 - 7:52PM
Coach Jsence finally got his wish and gets to return to his alma mater, the University of Kentucky, for Season 24....but will he rue the day his wish came true? Staring him in the face is the most brutal schedule he's ever encountered in his tenure in the league--facing the league's defending champion in Nole at Death Valley, and playing in arguably the toughest division in all of the league, the SEC East. However, he is up for the challenge and is glad to be back in Lexington, with no plans to ever leave.
"I can only see myself leaving if I stop having fun with the team," he said. "I don't think it will ever bother me, but I've heard other coaches say they feel worse than normal when they lose with their team, so I'll have to see. I just hope I can put together some solid seasons and get to some bowl games, although I have a feeling this will be the best version of the Cats for a long time."
Coach Jsence will kick off his career with the Cats by taking on friendly rival GeorgeGoons and the Washington Huskies, who beat his ECU Pirates 42-14 last season. He will also have games with no-so-friendly rival Louisville (razorback44) and friendly rival Beefy, whose Idaho Vandals will play the Wildcats in the first round of the NDL Cup as well. Then there's the gauntlet that is the SEC, which has a murderer's row in the middle--weeks 5, 6, and 7 as the Wildcats travel to Florida to face Daw1git; then to LSU where Nole's sausage fingers will likely cause serious pain; and finally to South Carolina where Champ will look to be putting together a good season.
All in all, it will be a trying first season at the helm for Jsence, but it's one he's looking forward to with a lot of happiness. "I honestly wasn't sure I'd get here, I have to thank some people for helping me get my dream job. All in all, I just hope to make the Big Blue Nation proud of their team."
