A Streak Snapping Wake Up




It’s finally here.  I’ve been around for some big games before, but none have had the hype like today’s game against Florida.  The intensity is in the atmosphere, tickets are a rare commodity, and the BBN hasn’t stopped playing “Grove St. Party.”

We’ve waited 28 long years to beat Florida.  Most of the people reading this don’t know what it feels like to take down the Gators.  I’m here to tell you – that day has finally come.  Matt Roark isn’t walking through that door, but we don’t need an ostensible miracle to snap this streak.  Kentucky has the young athletes, a strong and sturdy offensive line, a swagger that has been unseen, and a Stoops.

It’s finally here, are you all in?

Your Tale of the Tape

Bring a Poncho

Chris Bailey is once again a bad guy.  The WKYT weatherman says that it might not be wet during the game, but isolated storms will be in the area during tailgating time.  It will be in the 60’s and very breezy once the game begins and the sun goes down.  Some might want a sweatshirt, but I hear body paint is warmer than you think.

Patrick Towles Will Be Protected Well

If there is one thing assured in tonight’s game, it’s that Patrick Towles will have time to throw.  I know Florida has a speedy pass rush that can get to the quarterback quickly, but Patrick has taken extra steps to ensure his safety.  He knows the key to his line’s heart – breakfast food.



Yesterday Pat treated his protectors to breakfast, and it’s the smartest thing Pat has done since growing out his hair.

Mark Stoops Watched Lafayette Last Night

So did KSR’s Trey Hunstman.  He’ll be around here later today to report what he and Stoops saw from Lafayette’s Landon Young and Jedrick Willis.

Herbstreit and Howard Believe in Blue

For the second consecutive week, the College Gameday experts are picking the Cats.  It feels weird to see winning predictions in back-to-back SEC games, but I won’t mind feeling the satisfaction from back-to-back SEC wins.

Eat Some Gator Before We Beat Some Gators

A Bourbon N’ Toulouse tradition, Gator etoufee comes to the Chevy Chase Cajun joint every time the Cats take on the Gators.  I had some yesterday for good mojo, and you should grab some before it’s gone.

Jason Hatcher is Ready for a Big Return

After being suspended for the first two games of the season, Jason Hatcher will have to knock the rust off quickly to make an impact player against Florida.  Currently listed 2nd on the depth chart behind Jabari Johnson, his athleticism will be needed in the pass rush, especially in containment if when running QB Treon Harris takes the snap.  Hatcher echoed his excitement for today’s game on Twitter, even though he kinda sorta guaranteed victory.  Probably not the best move to make Jason, just ask Jojo.

Rushing the Field will Come with a Price

Before I get ahead of myself, allow me to knock on wood (you should too).  After the Cats snap a streak of epic proportions, a field rushing is deserved.  If When it happens, don’t think twice, even though Mitch Barnhart may.  After rushing the field against South Carolina last year, the next field rushing will cost UK $250,000.  But don’t worry, that’s a drop in the hay compared to the $110 million that was dropped to renovate Commonwealth Stadium.

    Hold on : Rushing the field fines are cumulative? Across years? Does that include Tennessee a few years ago? How about the Alabama win when Tim Couch was here?

    $250,000?!?!? And what exactly does the SEC intend to do with these funds?? Corporate vacation?

    I know ending the streak would be huge. HUGE! But do we want to rush the field against an unranked team?

    Rushing the field is just stupid to begin with, and against an unranked opponent for 250,000 is just crazy. If Matt wants us to rush the field so bad he can pay fine.

      Stop it. This would be the biggest win for UK Football since the #1 LSU win. It’s been 28 years. If we win, we are rushing the field.

    For $250,000 you could get Mr. Waka to live in Lexington and travel with the team.

    Did Patrick pay for Maria Taylor’s breakfast, too? That is the SEC Network anchor, right?
    Where did you get the nonsensical expression ” a drop in the hay?” The same place you got “show it out?” I saw that “show it out” was part of the “lyrics” to Grove St. Party, which is amazingly vulgar, misogynistic and miscreant. Just the thing to celebrate a UK win with. But I’ll give the beat an 85,
    good to commit a drive-by shooting to.
