A Look Back At The Streak

That man in the photo above is one Bill Ransdell, the last quarterback at Kentucky to pick up a win over the Florida Gators. The year was 1986 and the Cats picked up a win at home by a score of 10-3. Here is a list of all the games that have followed:

1986 Kentucky 10 – Florida 3

1987 Florida 27 – Kentucky 14

1988 Florida 24 – Kentucky 19

1989 Florida 38 – Kentucky 28

1990 Florida 47 – Kentucky 15

1991 Florida 35 – Kentucky 26

1992 Florida 35 – Kentucky 19

1993 Florida 24 – Kentucky 20

1994 Florida 73 – Kentucky 7

1995 Florida 42 – Kentucky 7

1996 Florida 65 – Kentucky 0

1997 Florida 55 – Kentucky 28

1998 Florida 51 – Kentucky 35

1999 Florida 38 – Kentucky 10

2000 Florida 59 – Kentucky 31

2001 Florida 44 – Kentucky 10

2002 Florida 41 – Kentucky 34

2003 Florida 24 – Kentucky 21

2004 Florida 20 – Kentucky 3

2005 Florida 49 – Kentucky 28

2006 Florida 26 – Kentucky 7

2007 Florida 45 – Kentucky 37

2008 Florida 63 – Kentucky 5

2009 Florida 41 – Kentucky 7

2010 Florida 48 – Kentucky 14

2011 Florida 48 – Kentucky 10

 

Ouch. Twenty-five years of losses. Joker Phillips has made the choice to ignore the past on this one.

“It’s been our theory, you know. Why bring those things up?” Phillips said. “You hear it enough outside of here. Therefore, we don’t bring them up. We just try to continue to prepare the best way we can to play as good as we can.”

If it worked last year against Tennessee maybe it will have some sort of effect against the Gators later today. But those who forget the past are doomed to repeat it. The folks over at Saturday Down South have the game going to the Gators with ease.

-Saturday Down South

Jon: Thanks to Jared Lorenzen, Florida will pile on the points. They’ve scored an average of 49 against the Wildcats the last five times. Florida 48, Kentucky 17

Kevin: Florida rolls here and wins easy. Florida 43, Kentucky 13

What are your predictions for the score of today’s game?

    #1 – I know in the DC area, it’s on DC50, the local affiliate that shows SEC games.
    Also, I was at that ’93 game as a student right beside the UF endzone. Heartbreaking isn’t the word for that game…

    10 Amen brother! Besides Petrino coming to us after U of L is a move up and Pitino’s was a move down. Even if we suck at football now. We are still in the SEC and if administration would get their head on straight and hire Petrino football in Lexington would get get much, much better.

    After UL would be a move up…not…you are the #3 team in the state.

    It’s all about conference 14. U of L plays in a weak conference. If Petrino came here he could, if he won the conference, play for a national title. Yes, U of L is better and maybe WKU, too. But the potential is greater here.

    i love the brilliant coaching move to keep putting morgan newton back in, when the d has been giving us a chance….maybe next time he’ll all of a sudden become a decent qb….

    I wish they would go back to the “K” on the side of the helmet. Looks classy

    The power “K” on the side of the helmet was sharp. I would really like to see the Cats go back to this classic uniform style.

    Good God, look how much smaller the helmets were.

    Eek. I remember sitting in Commonwealth for those (3) 50+ point drubbings. Here are some fun stats: In the series, the total score is 1100 to 435, for an average final of 42 to 17.
