      The best thing I’ve ever read on any part of ksr. Thank you for sharing that.

      Definitely the kind of person you want to have on your team.

    Last year, my father, a life long UK football fan, lying in his bed in his last days in the hospital, asked me had he lived long enough to see the beggining of UK football becoming a force, a quality team.
    There was so little left in him at that time, his disease had wrecked his body, but his heart, was still strong.
    I was not expecting that question. I was home from deployment to be with my family to be with them at the end.
    We talked about everything, he and I, and it would always get back to UK Football.
    He told me his favorite players, his favorite moments of many games, he talked about each coach.
    Then he asked me that question, has UK become a force, are they a quality team?
    I shook my head to the affirmative, because I was too choked up to speak.
    Those were not his last words to me.
    His last words, to me were kind and loving, but he ended it, as we did every conversation “Go Cats”.
    That is the reason I finish my comments with “Go Cats” and perhaps why I am too critical at times.
    I want my father to know, yes dad, you lived to see the beggining of UK football becoming a force.
    Thank you JJ.

      That’s an awesome story BluKudzu. I know some of us carried away sometimes with our Cats, but to so many of us that were born into the BBN, it is so much more than a game. It’s a connection you share with someone who is special to you. It’s a bond unlike anything else I share with anyone . Unless you understand it, you simply can not understand it.. to you and your pops… Go Cats

      I lost my beloved father in June; 89 yrs old and a life-long UK fan. I’d give anything if he’d been able to see this season.

      Thank you for sharing your story. Being able to spend the time with our dads watching the cats is what makes it truly special. Each new year coming around and talking about the hope for how this season is going to go. God bless you and your family – Go Cats.

      Thanks BluKudzu, and sorry about the loss of your dad. You also Shelby.

      Thanks for sharing blukudzu. I lost my dad a few years back unexpectedly, he was only 56. Around the same time, I lost my wife and child’s mother unexpectedly. All I have left in this world is being a dad and being a UK fan. Thank you for bringing your story in, it sounds silly, but to someone like me, it’s one of the best things I’ll hear for a while.

      Great read! I’m sure your dad is looking down and agreeing with most of us in that this is not your same old Kentucky football! GO CATS!!!
