….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?
