      If you all we’re not in the Live Blog, I kind of started a long chain of comments like that. What a slobberfest ESPN was engaging in.

      Bud led the Normandy invasion; Bud discovered penicillin; that wasn’t Neil Armstrong on the moon…that was Bud.

      ScoggDog had the comment of the year on Bud Foster.

      The greatness of Bud Foster can’t be reduced to something as simple as a football game, just like it can’t be captured in mediums as unrefined as marble or stone, poem or song. To properly portray the magnificence of the man would require a structure beyond our ability to comprehend – like a sculpture of pure light floating on a lake of the most innocent love. To gaze directly at Bud Foster would be to risk madness, like staring into the sun until one was blinded by sheer awe.

      When the euphoria wears off, you’ll see that the world is just a little more gray now. That’s the Earth’s way of weeping for the passing of Bud Foster.

      ScoggDog made another funny comment:

      Look – I understand everybody is hyped about the ending – but please, try to view the big picture.

      This is no day for celebration. We lost Bud Foster. Bud. Foster.

      This is not original with me, but here’s a comment I made:

      Directly under the throne room, a gloomily lit hall. Banners hang on either side to form a corridor down the middle of the
      fire lit room. Giant doors open at one end. A huge figure silhouetted against the bright light beyond walks forward. In slo-mo, we recognize the unmistakable shape of the God of Thunder. Hammer in hand, he reaches the end of a raised platform. Lightning strikes the Destroyer. It convulses. Bud swings Mjolnir around, takes off straight up into the air, as the Destroyer gets back on its feet and looks up at the Thunder God. Storm clouds gather around Bud as he summons gale force winds.
      Debris from the battle begins to rise up into the sky. The Destroyer stays there, kept grounded by its massive weight.

      I missed it. I was at work. Sometimes I can’t keep up with the live blog during a close game because I keep missing what is happening in the game, or vice versa.

      Sometimes I have to put the iPad down because I wind up missing too much of the game, especially at the end of a close game like that one and the UL bball game.

      I thought it was funny how the announcer said something about how time was working against KY when there was around 6 mins left. He said if something happens and we didn’t score, there wouldn’t be a lot of time to get the ball back. Well, buddy…what makes you think we aren’t gonna hog up all the time and it will be a problem for VT?



    • runningunnin.454
      10:18 am January 2, 2020 Permalink

    • Realme
      10:20 am January 2, 2020 Permalink

      Do you think ESPN also had video of the 2 punches our media reported thrown by their players, and chose to make it look like it was only Bowden? Do you think it was VT that broke into his car?



    • StillBP
      10:21 am January 2, 2020 Permalink

      Sometimes you gotta hit the bully in the mouth. They had posted social media videos calling Lynn awful names, kept clowning on him. At what point is enough “enough” and you punch them in the mouth…well over an hour before the game is that point 🙂 haha



    • runningunnin.454
      10:36 am January 2, 2020 Permalink

      BP, funny you said that; some KSR commenters were piling on Lynn, and I posted that when I was 9 years old, I was having problems with bullies. Our pastor told me, “there are bullies in this world, and sometimes, you just have to punch them in the mouth”.
      Shortly after that, my Dad sent me to live with my Mom’s uncle in Detroit. He was a decent pro middleweight in the ’20’s, and after retiring from the ring, he opened a boxing gym teaching young guys, age 9 to 17, the sport.

      BP, I thought we were going to run out of time

      Matt, it wasn’t just 5 minutes of cursing. It was also our players using the same racial slur that VT players were hurling at Lynn. I didn’t like that. I guess some might say they were just reciprocating, but I don’t like it.

      Chris I was concerned about time too, but only on that drive…I wasn’t even thinking about enough time for another possession bc I knew our drives take a lot of clock

    We’re good at running clock. That’s what the power run game does. I’m not sure what happened to our defense for a while there, but they came through when it counted. That last drive and score was epic. Bowden is a legend.



    • Realme

      Still kept the streak alive at least. We remain at the top of the list of teams holding opponents to 30 points or less.



    • chris gettelfinger is not walking through that door
      10:43 am January 2, 2020 Permalink

      I thought they were taking too much time, but it worked out perfectly since they only had a few seconds. The scoop & score was reminiscent of the ending of the UF game last year,

      Several of us were complaining about clock management in the Live Blog, and when we scored I tried to say “Like I said, perfect clock management!” But someone beat me to it. Haha.



    • RealCatsFan
      11:02 am January 2, 2020 Permalink

      When they had the ball with 15 seconds, I was looking around for a chicken to sacrifice to the Football Gods. The Old Kentucky Football would have let them run it up the field for a score. Actually, the OKF would have coughed the ball up earlier.



    • ClutchCargo
      11:22 am January 2, 2020 Permalink

      No kidding, RCF, I half expected Jordan Wright to fumble that ball right back for the game-losing TD at the end. I’m scarred from that Peach Bowl ending back in the early 90’s.

      Buddy of mine was going back and forth on FB with some of his UL fan buddies/coworkers on the same thing. He said you need a thug or two on the team for toughness, but you can’t have more than one or two, or you end up with a Bobby Petrino team. 🙂

      Now I am never going to say that LB is a thug, but he still has a little bit of growing up to do. That being said, he has come a long way, and his devotion to his child is most encouraging. THAT is what makes a man.

    • cats646
      10:53 am January 2, 2020 Permalink

      The thing is that he did used to be a thug. He even admits that. But he made it outta that life and I’m so proud of him! And people coming at him acting like he never grew up at all really makes me mad.

      10:59 am January 2, 2020 Permalink

      I think Lynn is a little bit like Boogie Cousins. They both had a tough past, and they both have to work hard to leave that past behind. I have lived a pretty easy youth by comparison, and have not walked in their shoes, so I can’t say too much about what they are dealing with.

      We had a Ben Snyder’s in Louisville. I remember it vividly because my mom used to drag me in those stores with her when I was a kid. What fun!

      Wow, RCF. I totally forgot about Shilito’s. I’m pretty sure we had one of those, but I don’t remember Rhodes or Bacon’s if we had them. Those were the days before suburban malls totally killed downtown shopping. I do remember my dad though, in the early to mid 70’s, saying “Yeah, people aren’t going downtown as much now. They’re going to the Turfland Mall.” Then the Fayette Mall opened up.

      I vaguely remember Grants. Bacon’s had several stores in Louisville. Might still be around – I don’t shop, so I wouldn’t know, LOL.

      Service Merchandise was another one that went by the wayside. My parents used to get the catalog every year, and I remember drooling over the model train sets and the Pioneer stereo receivers as a kid.

      I’m like Matt. I want to bask in the glow of the UL game and the bowl game for a few more days. I wish we started SEC next Tuesday.

    So Matt had the audacity to compare Lynn Bowden to Saint Lamar? The nerve of that guy!

      No he just tweeted out ESPN’s graphic about it. He did break a record after all.

    On the last couple plays of the game I was honestly just worried that they would get within FG range and it would end like the Georgia game a few years ago.

      Wasn’t worried about that; you CAN play the prevent defense with 15 seconds left in the game, ha ha.

      Did anyone notice what Matt was talking about on the last play?

      cg, I just went back and watched that final play, and they were so zoomed in on the play that it was hard to see what was happening elsewhere on the field.

      I don’t know what Matt is talking about…that guy would have to lateral the ball, and there was no one there near him that was even in the picture.

      rg, it looked like he was trying to make a forward pass, which may have been a penalty because they may have been ahead of the LOS.

    Ah, Dawahare’s. I haven’t heard that name in years. My grandfather used to jokingly call it Dog Hairs.

      One reason I fell in love with that store is because I heard (after I moved away) they supplied UK bball coaches with suits, and Rickie P. coming out in the plaid jacket in the game against Bama was great. He said it came from Dawahare’s too, and UK auctioned it off for charity.

    I know this as all been said but i am just now able to get on here. What a Football game. I think it was the best Football game i have ever watched as far as being nervous and then so excited . That offensive line is awesome , the whole DAM team is awesome.

      Rick, I had to work, so had to listen on the radio. I couldn’t wait to get home to spend my NYE watching the replay with a cold beer in my hand!

      I said it before, I’ll say it again: John Schlarman is the best O line coach in the country, and I hope one of the blue-bloods doesn’t steal him away!

    Since I was out running errands on Monday and didn’t comment on the Louisville game….
    That game was way too close for comfort, but it was thrilling to win in overtime. The officiating was terrible. The refs evil plot to hand the game to Louisville was foiled by the fact that they can’t hit a free throw.

    IQ and Brooks did a great job on Nwora defensively. IQ hit some clutch shots, and he’s the guy I want on the free throw line in late game situations.

    Nick Richards was great, and we would not have won without him. Big Nick Energy. EJ made some dumb mistakes, but also came up big in some situations. Sestina was solid overall.

    Ashton didn’t have the greatest shooting day, but he did a good job running the offense and setting his teammates up to score. (Seriously, watch the highlights and realize how many of our buckets were set up by Hagans.)

      J-Dub I agree the refs wanted Louisville to win. But if you strolled Card Chronicle after the game, you would be amused to see how many comments complained about the refs in “corrupt arena” not giving them any calls

      Syrin said the best thing Nick did was not foul out, of course I took offense at that comment and defended Nick’s honor. I really need to stay out of the comment section after games.

    This to me is the statement that sums up how far Kentucky Football has come – five years ago, who would think that we would follow up record breaking players like Benny Snell and Josh Allen with an absolute legend like Lynn Bowden? Imagine what could be waiting in the wings for this team, with the kind of recruits we have coming in! GO CATS!!

    REALCATSFAN, When you watch the game pay attention to the block E.J has on Nowra close to the end of the game, it was a big time block.

      he also had an assist to Richards late in the game that was super important.
