Officially becoming bowl eligible was so close last night, you could almost taste it. Yes, all signs still point to UK going bowling this season, but to have it dangled right in front of your face only for it to be ripped away by an, admittedly, impressive final Georgia drive is a bit frustrating. Especially after 5 years of no postseason play for the Cats.
Not to mention the fact that UK was primed to take 1st place in the SEC East with a victory. It would’ve been so sweet to dethrone Florida after that debacle of a game earlier in the season.
Nearly a full day removed from last night’s game, let’s check in on the #BBN hashtag to see what some fans are thinking.

Kudos to everybody who came out to CWS last night. Everything was lined up perfectly for an electric atmosphere, and the fans really rose to the occasion.

Benny was a beast last night. No two ways about it. He shouldn’t beat himself up, but you’ve gotta respect that the kid wants to do everything in his power to help his team get a W.

This is the right attitude to have. If you thought to yourself at any point last night, “That’s so Kentucky football,” I can’t say I blame you. But pretty soon, hopefully, that phrase will take on a different meaning.
