All of the Times You Said “WTF” During Kentucky/Vanderbilt


1. You think something good is gonna happen
UK was pretty successful in their first drive. They moved the ball well, couldn’t finish with a touchdown, but it was encouraging to see something from the offense. Then the defense put them in even better position.

Awesome! Great field position! We’re gonna run them off the field!

Wrong. Kentucky had four chances from the one and couldn’t get a touchdown.

2.  A Fumble for a Score

Boom Williams was backed up, the worst place to let the ball loose so what does he do?  Lose the ball.  Vandy scored the following play, their first touchdown in the first quarter in 11 games.

3. But they gave it right back  

The ship looked like it was going to sink.  UK punted the ball back immediately, but Vanderbilt had a gift in the form of a muffed punt.

4. A Big Whiff from Dorian Baker

It wasn’t the only time Dorian looked silly. His mind did not look present during today’s performance.

5. A Touchdown that Didn’t get Reviewed

Juice caught this pass in the back of the end zone.  It was called a touchdown, only to be overruled by another official.  It did not get reviewed by the booth.

6.  An End Zone Interception

A fade to the short-side of the field? Sure, why not?  The play after Juice caught it in the back of the end zone, a terrible pass to Dorian Baker resulted in an interception.  It was the second time Kentucky had it inside the five but failed to put points on the scoreboard.

7. Giving the Keys to Barker

After the end zone interception it was Barker’s time to shine.

What do you do when you put in the backup QB?  After getting torched by plenty of backups we’ve learned that you ALWAYS GO FOR THE HOMERUN..  The crazy part is that it actually worked.

8. Ryan Timmons Catches a Touchdown

After dropping a potential touchdown on the first drive, Ryan Timmons had the redeeming play we’ve been waiting for, giving Drew Barker his first touchdown pass.

9. Drew Barker’s Pick Six

That euphoric high couldn’t last forever.  Drew eyed down his receiver, leading the safety right to the ball for an easy stroll into the end zone.

10. 4th and 1 with less than 2 minutes till Halftime

The play that will keep Stoops from getting any sleep tonight.  He was trying to draw Vanderbilt offsides, but then they saw a one-on-one on the outside.  So what do they do, throw the deep fade of course!  A flag could have been thrown, but the play never really had a chance.  The fallout was even worse.

11.  The Trick Play Touchdown

They forgot about the 11th man on the field.  It was all Vandy needed to get a win.

12.  Vandy Muffed another Punt

There were five UK players covering him tightly, yet none of them could fall on it.


13.  A Fumble that was Called a Drop

The booth did not review a play that was initially ruled incomplete.

14.  A Timeout to Punt the Ball

Yes.  Kentucky had to call a timeout to punt the bowl.  It was the drive after Towles returned, leaving everyone with a sour taste in their mouth.

15. Boom Didn’t Give Up

His 67-yard run kept Kentucky in the game.  He was stopped inside the 10 but Jojo Kemp punched it in to bring the game within 5 points.

16.  A PAT Instead of Going for Two

Instead of trying to put the game within three points, they kicked the PAT to make it 21-17.  They didn’t forget about the opportunity, Stoops thought it was too early to go for two.  The way the offense was moving the ball, he was confident they could get another touchdown opportunity.


17.  A Failed Field Goal

Kentucky was forced to kick a field goal.  It would have been to tie the game if they had previously converted the two-point conversion.  Instead, Jordan Swindle was confused and with only 10 on the field, UK took a 5-yard penalty, even though they called a timeout earlier to punt.  It backed them up too much and Austin MacGinnis just missed it to the left.


18. A Blocked Punt

When they couldn’t afford to give up another score, they gave Vandy ideal field position after the personal protectors were stormed, deflecting Foster’s punt.

19. Dorian Drops 

On third and short, they didn’t need much to get a game-winning drive going.  It was a little low, but it hit him in the hands.  Right. In. The. Hands.

20. Sacked on the Final Play

They couldn’t even attempt to pull off a miracle on the final play.  Only three people were rushing and they still got to Patrick Towles.  That is how you make “pathetic” into an art form.

A Postgame WTF

CJ Johnson had a “WTF” moment by dropping an F-Bomb during postgame interviews.  It was the most accurate description of tonight’s game.

    Why does Towles not throw the ball?? This is what, 2nd or 3rd time this season, game on the line, final play, he takes a sack to end the game, instead of just chucking it down the field.

      How in hell you blame this game on Towles. This is absolutely the worst coach staff in college football. Stoops has played his game of smoke and mirrors and his BS has now run out. I do not think that anyone could take the talent here and prepare, develop, or position worse than this whole staff has. This is a total cluster fluck and anyone who supports this moron is also part of the problem. There is no dignity in what Stoops and his idiotic staff has done here and the era of Joker continues just by another name. UK the school that makes millionaires out of really bad coaches. I really hope CWS is empty next week as these fools on the sideline need to know how they have pissed off the UK faithful. I really feel sorry for the players they deserve much better than this.

      Stoops does not tell Towles to hold on to the ball with the game’s final play and take a sack. That is on Towles. Not saying we would have won the game, but holding on to the ball and taking a sack does not help you win. Chuck the ball down the field, 0 seconds on the clock. Don’t eat it.

      Not on Towles IMHO. On film we had 5 or 6 guys on the line and could not block 3??? What does that tell you?

    I want to also congratulate KSR for a website that now blocks all comments unless you get ad blocker. Like the football program it is all going down hill.

      No, it doesn’t. I’d like to congratulate you on projecting your own incompetence onto others.

    This team has serious problems and they aren’t on the talent side; it’s 100% coaching. When a team regresses this much without significant losses of key personnel due to injury the cause can only fall at the feet of the coaches. For whatever reason, they lost this team a few weeks ago and can’t get it back. Be ready for a slew of transfers and decommitments beginning in a couple of weeks.

    Assuming Stoops is still around (which he will be and, probably, deserves to be), Barnhart needs to insist he overhaul his coaching staff. And, insist either the OC or DC has head coach experience at a high level; preferably an older guy, late in his career who’s had experience winning. Basically a “mentor” for Stoops. Someone to step in on the sidelines during games and keep Stoops from making stupid mistakes.

    Here’s a fun name to throw around for this position – Steve Spurrier. In his resignation (not retirement) interviews he said he wants to coach again, just doesn’t want to be head coach. And, he and Stoops have a pretty close relationship (I believe I read that somewhere). I know it’s a pipe dream but, who wouldn’t want to see The Visor” on the sidelines calling plays!?!?

    On WTF moment #5 – The rule is that the players whole foot has to be in bounds, not just his tip-toe, if you watch the replay his heal game down out of bounds, and that is why it didn’t get reviewed. Nick Roach i can understand why you wouldn’t know that, hell most people don’t, But Stoops threw a hissy fit to the ref’s screaming “HIS HEAL,HIS HEAL” while using his hands to try and explain his point. Which brings me to my point….OUR OWN COACH DOESN’T EVEN KNOW THE RULES OF THE F%$&#@$ GAME THAT HE IS MAKING 3 MILLION TO COACH!!!!!!!…….PATHETIC!!!!

    Jchartlage, love the idea of Spurrier coming on board. Maybe an experienced coach could mentor him and fix some of the problems. Like it or not, due to contract, he’s here for one or two more years. Gotta try something.

      I would rather be a L’Ville fan than to see Spurrier on our team. Apparently some have forgotten the relentless beatings over the years–being up 40 points with 30 seconds left in the game and still trying to score touchdowns.
