University of Kentucky Basketball, Football, and Recruiting news brought to you in the most ridiculous manner possible.

BTI’s Rants and Ramblings: What would you trade…..

….for a win over Tennessee on the football field?  I posed this question on Twitter yesterday, and got a ton of responses.  Frankly, we are in desperation mode for this win.  1/3 of this state’s population has never seen a Kentucky win over Tennessee, and we are approaching 10,000 days since that last win.  TEN THOUSAND!!!  So, its safe to say that some people, myself included, would trade a hefty amount of things for this 1 win.  I will make this statement now:

“WHEN KENTUCKY BEATS TENNESSEE IN FOOTBALL, I WILL QUIT THIS WEBSITE.”

Which basically means that I will never be quitting this website.  But it certainly should make some of you want that win even more.  It has gotten to the point where people would accept a losing season and no bowl game just to beat Tennessee.  For a program that has won 2 games in a season in this decade, that amazes me.  But I will say that I would trade a bowl win every single year to beat Tennessee.  I would give up 2 Louisville wins to beat Tennessee just once.       

Now, here are some of the best responses I got from you on Twitter:

@tsettles: “I would trade any of UK’s non-title Final 4’s”

@dwperr2: “I would trade a 1-11 football season if that 1 win was Tennessee”

@ukcrazy74: “I would date Alex Legion’s mom for a win over Tennessee”

@kevinedlin: “I’ll trade the 5 cheerleading national titles.”

@lincolnduff: “I would trade Jodie Meeks 54-point game”

@cblake78: “I would trade Terrence Jones….or at least Eloy Vargas.”

@CB4UK: “I’d give up an SEC basketball Tournament title for sure.”

So, now 26 years removed from the last win over the Vols, how far would you go?  What would YOU trade?
