“Stevie Got Loose” ten years ago today

Ten years ago today, Stevie Johnson got loose.

The No. 9 Louisville Cardinals came into Commonwealth Stadium assuming a beatdown was in the works.

Brian Brohm was a Heisman Candidate and the Cards were talented enough to win a national title. They had defeated Kentucky four years in a row, including a 59-28 beatdown the year before.

Nobody on the entire Wildcat roster had ever beaten UofL in their college career. With less than a minute remaining in the game, UK was down by one point and had a fighting chance of knocking off the heavy favorite.

The rest is history.

Ten years later, that play still gives me goosebumps.

    And to this day, Stevie Johnson will never have to pay for a drink if I’m in the same bar.

    One of the all-time great moments in UK football history. I’ll never forget that game and moment.
