    I just want to say I came on here at half time and everyone was already losing the game. What I know about the game is its 60 minutes long not 30 minutes. What a great team win. GO BIG BLUE!

      No we earned it, in fact made it closer than it should have been. We did not need a bogus holding call at the end of the game like they did last year. The FG call I am not sure, looks like it went right over the upright so not sure what the rule is. I know the announcers kept saying good but the tv angle was not right up the post, could have gone either way but refs owed us for missing 2 blatant holding calls on us and for calling the worst PI call in the history of football. That official needs suspended a game or 2 for that PI call.

    • UoKFB PHAN

      I admit, I was thinking early in the game that if Wilson caused another turn over then he needed to sit and Hoak needed to be on the field. But then you see him make plays with his feet and make a great pass to Bowden and I’m like, ‘well you really can’t pull him’. I think he is going to be a work it progress. This may well show us what Hinshaw and Gran can do when developing a QB.

    This was a critical win for Stoops and the team. As one of the SEC Network commentators said, they’ve learned how to win tonight.

    There’s still a lot of room to grow, but I see signs that the coaches have also learned and advanced. I’m good with the team this year.

    I have a feeling that this team is going to be the Cardiac Cats all year long….



    • CatsfaninFL
      1:31 am September 9, 2018 Permalink

      Part of that lends to our style… it’s not a flashly offense, it’s more of a cram it down your throat for 5 yds/rush. Doesn’t lead to a lot of blowouts.

      Nah. Just watching a few other games before ours was over. I quit watching in the third. It was already over for them lit’ Gator Boys…Benny hurt #11 and that’s was it SON! Great job D…Terry Wilson did outstanding. I stand corrected…



    • UoKFB PHAN
      1:25 am September 9, 2018 Permalink

      Hey CM… at least you’re will to admit if you are or might have been wrong. I was a big supporter in the spring and summer for giving Hoak an honest chance when a lot of people were already giving the job to Wilson. I still think they need to work Hoak in because I believe we can also win with him and injuries can happen. Hopefully we’ll get to see Danny Clark get some snaps if we’re on the plus end of a blowout.

    Great Win. We looked the part the entire game for once. We now look like a team that can compete in the SEC.
    For all of you “fire Stoops” crowd, step back and give this man a chance to coach his team. This is not basketball, he and his staff cannot turn this program around in a year. It’s a project and it takes time to get the right players and staff in place and implement his style of play into those surrounding him.
    So proud of our team tonight! Did we play perfect? No. But what I saw was an entirely different Kentucky team tonight playing for a cause and that was to win, and win we did!!
    Great job to Stoops and his staff for this awesome victory!

    Team could be scary good if they put it all together. Just think of the turnovers, missed opps to get turnovers and penalties {although some were BOGUS PI call} that we had. Put everything together and we can play with almost anyone on that given day. This was 27-14, could have been 38-10….Just like last week without mistakes would have been 52-7 or so. Keep working guys and lets make those improvements. Congrats to all in the BBN family and thank you to the players and coaches for putting an end to this. How about that overall Defense and Oline tonight.

    Truthfully and technically, Stoops should be 4-2 against Florida with 2 wins at the swamp, including 2 in a row starting our own ministreak!! But all that aside, winning @ florida makes it so much sweeter to watch their garbage fans and that stupid chomp sit there, the way we had to last year, except our players got out a couple words, those POS stood on bleachers waving like little prom queens. Can’t wait to beat them down again next year. They got lucky it was that close. Could’ve been 41-16, as we drove the ball into or at the edge of the red zone twice before halftime until a good play by a defender, putting his helmet on the ball popping it out to cause a fumble (Wilson had it high and tight, tucked, the kid made a good play, can happen to everyone, and usually does in that scenario) and a bad/lazy pass off his back leg that the DB cut in front of to pick off, (Richardson could’ve flattened out his route as well to shield the corner.). Those plays in years past, spelled out how the game would go the rest of the way, regardless of venue, but Wilson didn’t flinch, he had played really well up to that point. He kept his composure, came out in the 2nd half and continued his GREAT game. THAT kid has some WHEELS, literally, got out of some situations that might have cost us the game. He’s only going to get better, our passing game will continue to improve and progress and if that happens, other teams lookout, the Cats is here!!!!! STOOPSTROOPS BABY.

    I thought after 2 turnovers the writing was on the wall… we live in hope but we’re conditioned to disappointment. Last Year was the final straw… but we have outplayed them 3 of the last 5 years, and we were due. Stoops deserves the credit this year as much as the blame last year and he’s moved the needle. This is a better program than it has been for 20 years. Maybe – just maybe – we have turned the corner.

      Actually in their house, even better. In their back yard would have been a location not far from their place that gives them essentially a home field advantage. Like if we played them in Loserville it would be in our back yard.
