Yes, Kentucky Lost Yesterday. But Louisville Got Annihilated.

There are plenty of reasons for UK fans to have their heads held high today. We got to spend yesterday cheering on a special team, and while the results weren’t exactly perfect, we still made sure that every CBS viewer at home understood just how much the BBN really cares about football. We lost to an elite team, but the season is far from over, and a top-tier bowl game is still within our grasp.

And hey, at least we aren’t Louisville.

The Cards have proven themselves to be among the most abysmal major conference teams in college football this season. Bobby Petrino, long touted as an offensive guru, has seemingly forgotten that there is, indeed, an entirely different half of the game. The Cardinal defense is giving up 40.8 points per game, which actually includes their early season win over Indiana State, where UofL won 31-7. Remove that game from the sample and the average jumps to 45 points. Finally, if you just look at the ACC slate, the figure is 48.7 points per game allowed. Their defense is somehow getting worse as the year goes on.

Breaking down the scoring from Louisville’s humiliating outing at Clemson yesterday has honestly softened the blow of UK’s loss for me. The Tigers had two different QBs throw for at least 2 touchdowns. Four different Clemson rushers reached pay dirt, three of whom eclipsed 100 yards rushing on the day. Five different Tiger receivers found the end zone. It was just unmitigated slaughter.

One funny stat I saw pointed out: you could spin these stats to say that Louisville’s passing defense is actually OK. They did, after all, only allow 169 yards through the air, which sounds nice. Until you notice that they gave up 492 rushing yards. Why risk the interception when the D-Line can’t stop a toddler?

Misery, as they say, loves company. So if you’re feeling somber today that our beloved Cats won’t be making the trip to Atlanta, just find the nearest Cards fan and remind them that their team is a dumpster fire with an incredibly expensive to fire coach, and we’ll be seeing them in 3 weeks.

    UL came Into that game focusing on shutting pass game down and got ran all over. They will do opposite vs UK. Will we be able to pass on them?

      That garbage defense has been shredded by teams not nearly as good as Clemson. We’ll be just fine.

      Those other teams did not have Eddie Gran calling plays. He is the only person in the world that could make U6 look good on defense.

    This is acting like Louisville fans. When we lose we dont have to try to feel better by our rival losing like they do..

      You can feel sorry for them if you like, I’m going to laugh and make fun of them and not feel even a little bit bad about it.

      I agree Brad it’s a bad look honestly. Louisville is irrelevant and should be treated as such. Just because Louisville got stomped yesterday doesnt make our loss feel any better.

      It has nothing to do with whether we win or lose, it’s all about UofLittleBro sucking balls.

      I agree. This is petty. I couldn’t even tell you Louisville’s record because I don’t care.

      Yes god it is pretty, anytime a Cardinals team sucks, it’s beautiful.

    I think we just need to worry about our own house and not the neighbors house.

      You go right ahead with that plan, I love watching UofLittleBro crash and burn.

      We can do both. BBN’s yard is a little tall at the moment, but the neighbor’s septic tank is backing up into theirs, there’s a car parked in their living room, and their trash can is overflowing and on fire.

      Not to mention a tiger recently escaped from the zoo and took a huge dump in their front yard. And the poop had a lot of red feathers in it.

    When one of the main ideas of the article is about how bad Louiville got beat you could at least throw the score in there somewhere.

    I’m not above a little schadenfreude. Yesterday was a letdown but at least we didn’t embarrass ourselves. Georgia is really good, there’s no shame in losing to them. Clemson is also really good, but they looked like the Patriots playing against a Pop Warner team yesterday.

    We’re going to the best bowl we’ve been to in decades, little brother has to buy tickets to whatever game they go to after we get done with them

    Love this opening paragraph from a Deadspin piece on the drubbing.

    “Louisville’s football program is in utter disarray as their scumbag head coach continues to torpedo the team into nationally-televised embarrassments like today’s 77-16 loss to Clemson. But none of that matters because CLEMSON SCORED ANOTHER FAT GUY TOUCHDOWN, BABY!” Hahahahahahahahhahahahahaha!!!

    I really really hope our offense improves enough to hang at least 50 on them when we play. We owe bobby an ass-beating.

      Eddie Gran could not call enough right plays to put 50 on Lex Cath.

    Many UK fans are acting like the sky is falling. The whole point of this post is to appreciate how our program is on the rise. We should appreciate this team and what Coach Stoops is building bc we could be going downhill fast and in a hurry like the Cards. And as rivalry, if you don’t find it funny that Lville got beat like that, then you need to find a sense of humor.

    As I seen the scores rolling yesterday after the loss all I could think was how nice it would have been for us/bad fir them if we played them next.

      We may have negative yards if we had to play Bama, Gran and all his backwards passing and 2 yard routes. Very possible with some sacks we could have negative yards. Teams put 8 in the box and we run right into it and wonder why Benny is getting stopped. Is Wilson allowed to check out of a play? Time and time again yesterday you could see more defenders than we had blockers yet we run right into it. Also did not seem like Benny was patient and looking foropenings, maybe he was as there were probably not any to be found with 2 more defenders than we have blockers.

    You’d be disappointed if you/I knew how infrequent people really thought about you/me. This season has been so exciting for UK I have not devoted any energy to UofL’s poor season……
