I cant be objective about this game. I grew up on the Kentucky-Tennessee border and I hate Tennessee football with a passion. I am now 32 years old and I havent seen a win over the Vols since I was 6…and I now question whether I ever will. Many times UK has lost because Tennessee was simply better than UK…better players, better coaches, better schemes. That I can accept. But since 2005, they havent been appreciably better…but they just keep winning. Today’s loss can be attributed to a number of things…poor Secondary, below-average QB play, turnovers and maybe most importantly, playcalling that seemed focused on not losing, rather than actually winning against your hated rival. Whatever the cause, it was a recipe for another loss and the continuation of the longest streak in Division I football.
We will have a link to the postgame show later, but for now the curse of UK football has struck again.
