Last Week of UK Football, Get Ready for the Vols

With all the hoopla that basketball season inspires around the Bluegrass, let’s not forget that, for at least another week, it’s football season.

While this past Saturday was Joker’s last game in Commonwealth, this Saturday marks the last time he’ll be on the sidelines as head coach.  The seniors carrying him off the field after Samford was pretty neat, but you know what Joker would probably like even more?  Leaving as the only Kentucky coach in modern history with a winning record against Tennessee.

Five days from now, college football will see the “Coachless Bowl,” as UK and UT square off in a game that has absolutely zero point.  Nobody’s going to a bowl, no coach is fighting for his job, and no decades-long streak is at stake.  It’s the diet, caffeine-free soda of the football world.  But if Joker’s last two seasons have taught us anything, it’s that we still enjoy kicking the Vols when they’re down (see: Roark, Matt).  There’s really no way to know what to expect, as Tennessee’s interim coach will be facing a sudden, unfamiliar change, and Joker will be facing no consequences for the results.  I’m expecting some weird and wacky stuff.

So as the hoops world (including a high school game in Scott County) keeps us going, remember that we still have a football game to look forward to on Saturday.  And call me crazy, but yes, I’m still looking forward to it.  We might not see something like this again:

But we can at least know that the rest of the SEC hates Tennessee almost as much as we do.

    That Alabama fan video is probably the most frequently used video on this site.

    You’re attempting to stick to the formula, but there’s entirely too much writing on this post! What did we discuss last week?! Institute a 3:1 ratio for videos to sentences and you’ll go places, sir!

    When i attended UK more than 60 years ago beating Tenn. in football was the No.1 sports object each and every year no matter what else the team did. I still feel the same way.

    The wildcats suck even more than UT does. This has been the worst year in UT history, which will mean the arse whipping UK is about to get will be even more embarrassing.
