31 years of pent up rage and resentment towards Florida was finally released last night when the Cats took down the Gators, 27-16. It was a cathartic night for everyone who rooted for the blue and white, and represented the final hurdle that Mark Stoops needed to overcome to put aside any residual hate coming his way.
Arguably the biggest monkey on the backs of fans and players alike was finally set free, and along with it, the dreams of everyone who has suited up for the Big Blue who couldn’t finish the job themselves in years past were finally realized. Even these former Cats couldn’t help but join in on the celebration:

In 2007 we accomplished a dream of mine to bring College Gameday to Lexington. The game was Florida. The atmosphere was electric. We fought hard but we didn’t get it done. 45-37.
Tonight is special, it really is. #BBN

I don’t know how you all did this when I was playing. Good god I must have killed half the UK fans. Bone head play, followed by stupid pass, followed by TD. God love you all. #BBN

Does anyone else plan to play “Grove Street” on loop for the next 6 days? Or just me?
