Whatever you do, DO NOT show this to a Missouri fan

This weekend the University of Kentucky will host the Missouri Tigers for a Southeastern Conference football game. As hospitable hosts, Kentuckians should do whatever it takes to make sure Missouri fans enjoy their time in the Commonwealth.

A friendly, ‘Hello,’ goes a long way. If they ask for suggestions, a day at Keeneland followed by a delicious meal at KSBar and Grille could make their trip one of the best experiences in the SEC.

There is one way you can quickly ruin a Missouri fan’s day in less than 15 seconds, and that’s not by telling a Rick Pitino joke. Whatever you do, do not under ANY circumstances show them this clip.

If you ask many Missouri fans why the Tigers lost to Kentucky in 2018, they will not tell you it’s because Lynn Bowden made an incredible punt return with five minutes to play to make it a one-score game. They will not give credit to UK’s defense for holding Drew Lock and the Mizzou offense to ZERO second half first downs, nor will they blame their defense for giving up an 8-play, 81-yard drive with 1:24 to play.

Instead, the suffer from Ahmad Wagner PTSD, as the St. Louis Post-Dispatch’s Dave Matter clearly illustrates in this preseason article.

No player in the SEC knows the sting of controversial officiating decisions more than (cornerback DeMarkus) Acy. As the game clock turned to zeroes last Oct. 27 against Kentucky, Acy was flagged for pass interference in the end zone, even though it was Wildcats receiver Ahmad Wagner who clearly delivered the most contact, trying to twist off Acy’s head like a bottlecap.

Thoughts and Prayers to Acy. It’s a miracle the cornerback is still able to walk off Wagner twisted off his head like a bottlecap.

It’s been a rough year for Missouri fans. Even though they won the Kelly Bryant sweepstakes, they still can’t go to a bowl game. They lost to Vanderbilt and Wyoming. It’d be a real shame if you brought their attention to another painful loss they suffered less than a year ago, their fourth-straight to Kentucky.

      As a long time UK football fan, season tickets since Commonwealth opened, we have been on the short end of game changing calls for years and years. It was way overdue for us to get the benefit. Besides Mizzou is a newcomer to the SEC, don’t feel sorry for them one bit. By the way, the stadium will always be Commonwealth Stadium, not K—– Field. How do you actually name a structure ( stadium) a field? GO BIG BLUE !!

    Let’s just hope our secondary doesn’t get eaten up by Missouri’s excellent air attack

    As many close ones we have lost in heartbreak fashion I don’t feel feel bad for catching a break. That would be a bad way to lose one though
