    This game might be ranked too low. An unbelievable, jaw dropping jubilant victory

    I’m fine with this being in the top 10, but, I’d put it at 9, and bump the rest of the stuff up one spot.

    Mizzou wasn’t great. UK played a horrible game for 95% of the game on offense. It’s cool because the defense never gave up a 1st down in the 2nd half.

    But, this is way too high for me.

      It’s not because of the team we beat, it’s this high because we finally had the football gods smiling on us lol. We were finally on the other side of an ugly, improbable, comeback win.

      I get that about it, but for me that doesn’t have as much of an impact. It is one of the first times I can remember when UK won an ugly game, but this one didn’t leave me as impressed as some of the others on the list. I don’t have an emotional response to this game, and it feels like the response is more subjective than anything.

      I would have said the football gods started smiling on us when we scooped and scored the fumble at the end of the Florida game. Any time before that, it would have been called incomplete and they would have scored the next play. Or, UK players would have pulled back and a Florida player would have picked it up and won the game.

      It’s just hard for me to put this one ahead of either Mississippi State game, or the Tennessee game, or We’re Just Getting Started Bro.

      You make good points. Honestly I think it’s impossible to rank these games in perfect order. Outside the top three any one of these games could be in any spot lol.

    Perfect spot for this game! And you’re right Brent, after this game I started telling everyone to quit saying “that’s so Kentucky football” cause we killed that phrase right when CJ caught that ball!! Let’s get it!! 4 days till kickoff!!

    It’s important not only because of the improbability, but because it set up the defacto East title game with UGA. Perfect ranking because in the past we would’ve tripped up before ever having that opportunity and it looked like we would do just that.

    Regardless of what else happened in that game. Lynn Bowden going in to do the punt return is like Babe Ruth pointing at the home run fence before taking his at bat. That guy is a play maker and he will get to shine this year. Can’t wait for Saturday. GO CATS !!

    Originally I had this 6 I think. I just could not get over the fact it should not have been a close game but looking how we played and getting the win that way I get the 4 slot. Next up U6 fumble gate.
