I don’t know this to be 110 percent true but I’m pretty certain Florida’s starting quarterback, Luke Del Rio, is a Duke basketball fan. I spent most of my morning looking into the personal social media accounts of Kentucky’s upcoming opponent, as I do every week because it’s my job, and Del Rio has a quick retweet button on anything pro-Duke basketball.
When Duke beat Siena last year to start the season? Del Rio retweeted ESPN’s tweet. When Grayson Allen had a big NCAA tournament game? Del Rio retweeted. When Duke played North Carolina? Del Rio tweeted, “Dukeeeeeeeeee.”

So, as if Kentucky needed more reasons to beat Florida on Saturday, the fact that Del Rio loves the Blue Devils is right up there with the rest of them.
Beat Florida. Duke Sucks. Del Rio is garbage. (But I like his dad.)
