Go Kentucky, Go South Carolina

Believe it or not, Kentucky is still in the hunt for a spot in Atlanta.

Yeah, the SEC East is that bad this year.

Tennessee is the favorite right now, then Florida, but with a little help from South Carolina, the Wildcats could, theoretically, steal the East crown from the Vols and Gators.

For that to even become a slight possibility, Kentucky would have to win in Neyland tomorrow, something it hasn’t done since before I was born. Hell, Kentucky has only beaten Tennessee once, in any stadium, since before I was born. So that’s a lot to ask, but the Vols are pretty inconsistent and missing some keys pieces, while the Cats’ run game is in full stride late in the season.

Say that were to happen and UK pulls off the upset, then we’d turn our attention to the SEC scoreboard to see the final down in Gainesville, where Florida hosts South Carolina without the Gators’ starting quarterback and two of its best defenders. Meanwhile, the Gamecocks are on a roll and more than capable of the upset.

Let’s say that were to happen as well, then all Kentucky would need is a Florida loss to LSU in Baton Rouge next weekend, which is very, very likely.

To recap, Kentucky needs to win and needs Florida to lose to South Carolina and LSU.

Simple enough, right?

Might as well go ahead and pack our bags for Catlanta.

    Why would we need UGA to lose if we get a win at Rocky Top? Am I missing something?

    All of those things have at least a decent chance of happening. I’ll take that scenario every single time after pooping in the bed like we did to start the season.

    All I want is to beat UT. The rest is out of our control. We beat ourselves last week with a lot on the line. Let’s see how hungry the boys are. Plus they dirty snitches and I just hate Tennesse.

      Exactly. Beat UT at home and become bowl eligible and make the seat under Butch grow hotter, if not be the last straw for his tenure there.

    • If only we had 1 play back from the UGA game. Take your pick…the touchdown OOPS BUTTERFINGERS! interception play…the catch then fumble on the ground…any of the plays where we didn’t punch it in and had to settle for a field goal. We would SO be in the driver’s seat. Oh well.
