KSR’s Top 10 Plays of the 2015 Football Season: #2


The season didn’t end the way we wanted to, but we can still end the year on a high note by reliving the best moments from the 2015 football season.  The record may not have reflected much positive change, but these highlights might help.  

#10, #9#8#7, #6, #5, #4, #3

Boom Williams has done a lot of great things in his two short years at Kentucky.  Hopefully we’ve only seen the beginning of what he has to offer, but even if we never see him play another down, he will forever be cemented into the memories of Kentucky football fans because of this play.

Opening day of the New Commonwealth Stadium.  It was highly anticipated for so many reasons, creating an atmosphere unlike anything I’d ever experienced before at a Kentucky football game.  The Cat Walk was unbelievably massive, the turnout for Matthew Mitchell’s pregame concert was even more surprising, bringing an unprecedented optimism to the normally dismal program.

After a slew of on-field festivities, it was time to go, time to see the team we’d all been waiting for.  Of course there was a stupid clock malfunction to really kill the buzz, but Boom quickly brought it back.  The first play in the New Commonwealth Stadium, a 75-yard touchdown run.

It wasn’t a game-winner, but it’s a play that won’t soon be forgotten.

    I love that highlight of boom’s big run; but it so much better when the audio of leach is interlaced–gives me chills.

    I bought a computer three years ago, from a company that had not been at the top of the PC community for years. They had this problem for three years prior, lost a lot of faith and business, finally leading to the buyout of the Former CEO. They put together a slick marketing campaign, got a new director, and convinced me, as well as thousands of others, the product was going to be better, and each year, with the plan, they were going to enhance the owners experience. Each year came with an optional upgrade package you could buy.

    Well the new CEO, with no background in running a company in the very competitive PC market, had a pretty brutal first year getting the product to the market adequately. The smart folks began to see the writing on the wall, and bailed. They were few in number, but very sharp as it turns out. The company explained, hey, we are basically new here, just be patient, and we will be better in the years to come, we are better and have a bright future, with the people we have brought in, give us time. Be sure to buy the next optional upgrade package, more expensive than last year but worth it
    We did because we were both financially and emotionally invested at this time. Sure enough, the second year, some strides were made, but towards the end of the year, the logic boards had a problem, and it shut down. We were told they were going to get this fixed be patient. More people began to bail, but we, the ignorant, thought we saw signs of the company moving forward, a new systems designer, an upgrade to their facility, those that remained, their confidence was high. The system was up and running again, following a massive marketing campaign telling us things are so much better now, the CEO was upbeat, predicting great things, and those of us that remained, had our hopes raised again. The board had invested more money into the CEO and his assistants, making us believe, finally this is the right PC to have, we are going to experience some really cool things. Just make sure we bought the optional yearly upgrade to further enhance our experience.

    Well, not really. Inferior brands caught us and passed us up, the only thing we out performed was old and out dated systems, and systems that were never competitive, and, again, at the end of the year, the logic board crashed into a dumpster fire train wreck. Our PCs were outperformed over and over, stupid decisions were made by the inexperienced CEO, and instead of finding someone that could fix the logic board, he fired the “sure fire systems guy”, and brought in an old friend from an inferior company to design new systems to make our user experience better than the year before. Meanwhile, many of the people that were working there left, and in trying to replace them, they have gone to the community college system to bring in fill-ins. I chose not to purchase the optional upgrade, because past experience had shown no real benefit, just added disappointment and frustration.

    It was at this time, seeing the people this guy had selected, and watching all the other PC manufacturers continue to operate much better in the end of the year without shutting down, I decided to try and sell my often broken PC, with a logic board problem, on eBay. I got no takers, no bids, no interest. I can’t wait for the new marketing campaign to evolve to restore my faith, as well as the faith of others, and get us to buy in to the newer, albeit more expensive, upgrade package. This time I know it will be worth having. The only problem, because I chose not to get the previous upgrade package, there will be an extra charge associated to getting the newer upgrade package. All the problems in rebuilding the company with youth will have worked itself out. This next year will be different. We know because we were told it would be. Wait for the videos, you will see.
