Well so much for that whole “backup quarterback gives us a chance” thing. Last week Kentucky made Florida rookie QB Tyler Murphy look like a Heisman candidate as he completed pass after pass, after pass after pass.

Ah, yes. The South Carolina Gamecocks. Such a pleasant Southeastern Conference foe, eh?
