Florida fans at it again with #UKHateWeek


I’m not even mad about this, it’s kind of funny.

Last year, Florida fans put together the #UKHateWeek Twitter campaign leading up to their game against the Cats in Lexington only to be walloped by 20 points. This year, they’re at it again. Here’s a sampling of their top #UKHateWeek tweets, with a little bit of commentary, just because I can’t help it:

Sigh. Let’s not go there. 8 > 2. Hey Gators, just two titles ever? That’s really cute.

By my count, Kentucky has 21 players currently in the NBA. Florida has 11:

Bradley Beal (Washington Wizards)
Matt Bonner (San Antonio Spurs)
Corey Brewer (Denver Nuggets)
Udonis Haslem (Miami Heat)
Al Horford (Atlanta Hawks)
David Lee (Golden State Warriors)
Vernon Macklin (Detroit Pistons)
Mike Miller (Miami Heat)
Joakim Noah (Chicago Bulls)
Chandler Parsons (Houston Rockets)
Marreese Speights (Cleveland Cavaliers)

This is close, but from top to bottom, I think you have to give the edge to the Cats. Florida’s best are Horford, Noah, Bonner, Beal, Haslem, and yes, David Lee. Kentucky’s best (up for debate) are Rondo, Wall, Knight, Cousins, Prince, Davis, MKG, Patterson, Bledsoe, Meeks…I could go on and on, but you get the point. Ex-Cats > Ex-Gators.

How original, an incest joke.

Yes, he was just an honorary colonel, named such by Kentucky Governor Ruby Laffoon in 1935, but I bet you still eat his chicken.

That’s just kind of rude. What did Ashley do to you except provide decent action/adventure/thriller movies in the late 90’s?

Oh dear, he sealed his fate on this one.

    What’s funny about their incest jokes is that Florida is the most backwards redneck place on the earth and it’s not even close. The most screwed up stuff happens in Florida. Check Fark.

    David Lee is one of the best Gator alums. He is an All-Star.

    Ms Thompson – as a whole UK NBA guys win out because of pure volume, but the best Gator in the NBA is David Lee he’s been a 20 / 10 guy for the better part of a decade. NOt sure how you omitted him from your “Florida’s best” list.

    David lee is definitely the best ex Florida player in the NBA right now. And Matt Bonner is definitely not in the top 5. And soon Anthony Davis will be better than all of them.

    suprised you missed David Lee TT.

    Have to say, the UF players have done better in the NBA so far. But I think it has to do w/ how long they’ve been there. Most of UK’s players are in their first thru third years and are must getting established. In a couple more years the numbers will be ridiculous, and Bledsoe, Wall, Cousins and Davis will be allstars.

    At least some of these were pretty funny. Hateweek comments from the loosier and dirty bird fans were, fittingly, much less witty.

    TT may not be watching a lot of NBA thus the oversight and rankings. I will cut her some slack though as she is the best contributor on the site.

      Not including Lee was an oversight on my part, but yes, I will admit, I don’t watch as much NBA as I should. Very much prefer college ball.

    Also, Yeah Ill give Florida the nod on current successful NBA players.

    It is the state of Florida’s fault that GW Bush was president at all. If that state doesn’t screw up so bad, Al Gore would have been president, and honestly the Republican Party would be stronger today, but the extreme right ran it into the ground.

    Florida fans were done after that first picture….. “I photoshpped it on my 10 gigaflop processor in my parents basement when I was hopped up on mountain dew… good times!” And a fan named “Sterling Gould” should be rooting for the Florida debate or chess teams….really?….

    #9 Have you forgotten about T. Prince. He has been pretty successful in Detroit and oh yeah, he was also on the U.S.A. team. How many gators have done that?

    You could also have mentioned PPat and TJones’ teammate – Chandler Parsons. He’s doing very well for a second year guy and much better than most expected. Hard to say that any of KY’s players have exceeded expectations to this point.

    UK NBA players are better than Floridas. Rondo= NBA champion….. Prince=NBA champion.. enough said!Both of whom actually were key players also

    22 We can’t say any of KY’s players have exceeded expectations because the expectations for UK players are already set high. Parson’s had no where to go but up, can’t say the same for UK players.



  25. njCat

    18. Didn’t forget about TPrince. He’s had a pretty steady, but average career overall. He did get one ring and a gold medal, but never made an allstar roster. Lets see what he does this year w/ some better players around him. Will be fun to see at least one UK player start for a playoff team. (PPat has a decent shot as well.)

    Overall, the UK players have generally underachieved. Bledsoe and Wall may be getting ready to break out and Cousins could be special if he ever gets his head right. But overall, the KY players… meh.

    UF has a UK Hate Week? Who cares? It’s Florida. Don’t get me wrong, they’re a rival, but not in the same sense as UT. I have really disliked some of their players but never even bothered to worry about their bball fanbase, b/c generally it doesn’t exist.



  28. some players

    @ 22

    Chuck Hayes, Keith Bogans, Tayshaun Prince and Rajon Rondo have all exceeded expectations for them coming out of UK.

    Florida – some nice places just like Kentucky… i know they are trying to hate… but likely half these tweets are coming from people high on bath salts or being filmed for an episode of “COPS”. Douchey Florida students and grads are poor man’s Duke people. They feel entitled and elite… superior in intellect, culture, appearance and now apparently basketball passion. They are none of these, and produce for the world the likes of Bob Vila and Joe Scarborough… enough said. Football – go ahead and brag. Basketball… you are trying hard and have a good team this season, but you are no UK when it comes to basketball.

    A century (from the Latin centum, meaning one hundred; abbreviated c.) is one hundred consecutive years. If you mean 1901-2000 then Ky has 7, Florida 0. If you mean 2001-2100, Ky has 1, Florida 2.

    If you mean the decade 2000-2009, then Florida had 2, Kentucky 0. If you mean 2010-2020, Ky has 1, Florida 0.

    I will not even piss in Florida. The most horrific, mind numbing events and people live in Florida. Anyone remember Adam Corolla’s game he used to play on Loveline? It was called “Germany or Florida”? His theory was the most bizarre and awful things happened in either of those two places. Callers would call in with the weirdest, stupidest, sickest crimes or interactions between people and he would have to guess if it happened in Germany or Florida. It seems he never missed.
