To add insult to injury following today’s (whatever that was) performance, Florida QB Luke Del Rio was brutally honest about Kentucky’s ability to put pressure, or lack thereof, on him in the pocket all afternoon long.
Check out this harsh, yet ridiculously true transcript.

Here’s Del Rio at the podium giving credit to his offensive line for keeping the
Powerpuff Girls Kentucky defense from laying a hand on him all night.

I really want to be mad about this, but he didn’t lie. In the entire game, Del Rio was pressured just twice, both times by Denzil Ware on the first drive of the game. He ended up throwing for 320 yards, the most by a Florida quarterback since Chris Leak in 2004 (322), and four touchdowns on 11-19 passing.
We knew the defensive line would be rough going into the season, but I doubt many expected a defensive performance of this magnitude.
