It’s UK-Florida week, which means each coach on both sides of the field will have to answer the age-old question: What about the streak?
Mark Stoops is used to the question by now. Down in Gainesville, new Gators head coach Dan Mullen addressed it for the first time.
Mullen said, “I don’t know what that has to do with the game this week. Our guys didn’t have a whole lot to do with that and neither did they guys on their team, nobody. I don’t think that has any effect on this week’s game. It’s going to be two good teams going out to go play each other.”
Mullen did admit he doesn’t want to be the one to end three consecutive decades of beating Kentucky, though. He said, “I imagine someday the streak will be broken. It’s just the nature of sports, right? I don’t want to be the one that does it.”
“I try not to think about it in those terms because it really has no effect on us winning or losing this year,” he added.
