For 2 quarters the #BBN had high hopes for a Florida upset. The next two quarters weren’t so pretty. Matt Jones (of all the names) ate away at the Kentucky defense bit by bit on his way to recording 176 yards on the ground- 3 more total yards than the Kentucky offense. Jones joined Cat-killer…

KEY STORYLINES/MATCHUPS Fast start. Remember that first-quarter debacle at The Swamp in 2008, with two blocked punts? Starting with that game, Kentucky has not produced a first-quarter touchdown against the Gators. Over the last five seasons, the scores (in favor of Florida) after one quarter have been 28-0, 31-0, 14-0, 21-3 and last year’s 3-0.…

Let’s face it: the Kentucky/Florida football series is as lopsided as game of darts with Stevie Wonder. Kentucky’s 26-game losing streak ain’t pretty, and it certainly isn’t fun to talk about. Yet, if there’s anything Kentucky football fans have learned over the years, it’s finding humor in even the darkest places. Gainesville has given us…

  After a week of rest, the Cats are going to have to turn up a few notches to match the physicality of the ranked Florida Gators. With a little experience playing against Will Muschamp teams, the one word that comes to Stoops’ mind when he thinks of the Gators is ‘tough’, “They want to…

I’ve written this article in my mind a dozen times. Not because I was looking forward to it – in fact, just the opposite – but because I had no idea where to begin. I guess I’ll just start with the facts, even though they are famously optional here. The fact is I’ve been working…

Optimism was very high for the Kentucky football program heading into the 2020 season and it’s quite possible their first game against Auburn was the program’s most hyped up opener in forever.

The hot topic following Kentucky’s loss at Auburn is the no-touchdown call late in the first half when UK running back Chris Rodriguez crossed the end zone, but was rewarded no points for his efforts by the officials. One explanation given on the broadcast was that Rodriguez’s knee was down, which it clearly wasn’t; then…
