One thing that struck me after last night’s loss to Texas A&M was the overwhelming disappointment. I know that sounds obvious, but in years past, a night like last would’ve been brushed off as merely a quintessential example of “Kentucky football”.
But if it wasn’t clearly evident by now, this isn’t your average Kentucky football team. And we as fans aren’t expecting the same bumbling missteps of years past. This time, this year, we’re expecting to win. And even after a heartbreaking overtime loss, that mentality hasn’t changed.
Yeah I’m pretty pissed right now. Because I’m a fan. But there’s no other team I’d rather cheer for. I love my team. I love my Wildcats. Always and forever. #BBN

Here’s the bottom line. There’s nothing worse than losing when you know you’re the better team. We didn’t get it done. And it just sucks. But we ain’t done. Not yet. #bbn

If you told anyone in #BBN we would go into the bye week 5-1 w/ only loss on the road in OT against a championship winning coach
YOU WOULD’VE TAKEN IT
We still have 5 very winnable games on the schedule including 2 rivals
Stay the course BIG BLUE NATION

Actually, scratch all that, let’s just blame this guy and move on.
Honestly #bbn, this loss is on me. I've listened to every pregame @KySportsRadio show this season and watched the games just me and the wife. Was out with the in-laws yesterday, missed the show and watched the game with them.

Lesson learned: always listen to the KSR pregame show.
