    “After halftime we wanted to come back out and show people that we know how to finish a game and keep our foot on the gas and show everyone that we’re not going to play conservative”.
    No foolin, you promise? No more just trying to hang on? Then I promise to stop singing this song when we go into the 2nd half with a two score lead.

      I remember thinking later on last season that we were showing signs of developing a killer instinct, or at least not letting up and trying to sit on a small lead. Also, more C-Rod please!



    • Realme
      10:19 am October 19, 2020 Permalink

      Give us all the C-Rod! Forcing things with AJ in situations that he isn’t as good at isn’t doing him favors. Use them situationally. Rodriguez is the tackle breaker. Smoke is the speed. AJ is the go sideways first guy? I don’t mean to knock A.J. He is a great player and a great guy.

      10:22 am October 19, 2020 Permalink

      From what I remember before the season started last year, a KSR writer said AJ is the speed guy, Chris is the hammer, and Smoke is a tweener. I don’t know if that’s 100% accurate, and I can’t remember if that was their opinion or if they were quoting a coach. Either way, Smoke is our HR guy IMO, but he’s hurt now anyway. McClain looks good!

    The Vols tried to make us go soft on them by honoring #22 before the game. Didn’t work! But seriously, very classy move by the Vols – kudos to them.

    It felt GREAT to finally take care of business in a game against a just okay UT team. But it was more relief than “HOLY SH!T WE JUST WON” like those games vs UF, UofL with Lamar, etc. And maybe it was more satisfaction than relief, now that I think about it. I had no expectations going in, and I was pleasantly surprised.

    Possibly the best comment of the weekend when after the game Cole Cubelic said (paraphrasing): “Some defenses in the SEC may have more players that look good with 6 pack abs, but if I get in a street fight in an alley and I need help, Kentucky’s defense is the one I want.”

    BOOM!!!

      Well, fortunately for that group, Bach isn’t around to sue them. Haha.

      BTW, I really hate that song. The music sounds like a dirge, and the guy’s vocals are the worst. I like the Bach piece though. I had never heard that Brocol Harum ripped off off Johann.

      I actually like that song – always thought it had a pretty melody. Now I know why. 😉 But if you think about the sheer number of musical pieces written through the eons, and the finite number of patterns and sequences that the notes can be arranged in, is it any wonder that “rip offs” happen?

      I must confess that back when I was in my 20’s, I got so mad during a basketball game that I slammed my hand down on a footstool. And my car keys were sitting on it. When I raised my hand up, one of the keys was sticking right through the palm of my hand. No major damage, just a trip to the doctor to get it cleaned out and patched up, but I still have that honor scar, although it’s fading.

      When I had my first job after graduating we had a company Christmas party, and this was back in the 80’s when it was not unusual to having heavy drinking at these parties, and things sometimes got out of hand. This one night my manager (We’ll call him “Johnson”) got roasted and for some reason he and some of the other guys in the office spontaneously lined up in formation and tackled the Christmas tree at the hotel conference room that they had rented.

      At the next year’s party, someone put a note on the tree saying “Johnson, you’re mine!”

    TW did play a solid game. I think the early defensive scores took a lot of pressure off him and allowed him to play more relaxed.

      We’re getting closer to a complete game from both sides. That was a full game for the defense and a second half from the offense. If the defense can keep getting as many interceptions as points they allow, we don’t even need more from the offense.



    • chris gettelfinger is not walking through that door

      That’s not going to happen against Bama. Mac Jones is looking great, and their receivers are NFL level. It’s the old worn out “We can’t stop them, so we have to contain them” thing. If I’m wrong that would be awesome.

Some amazing young freshmen got a lot of playing time. Rutherford can absolutely jump out of the gym. This will make losing Leah hurt a lot less. Avery Skinner was on fire this weekend.

      Yeah, the latest TWD episode was good. There are some new episodes coming out in early 2021 that are technically part of season 10. World Beyond, I’m not sure what to think about that one. Just on its own, I don’t know that it’s a great show. But I think it is meant more for providing back story for the main show than anything, which is nice. And I don’t know what they are thinking with Fear the Walking Dead. That show went from pretty good to not making sense at all. But it’s new content, at least.

      Haven’t started Fear yet, but am fully expecting WB to explain some things about Rick and Jadis.

      LC, you should. Not every episode is a winner, but overall it’s still worth it, imo.

    I’m going to leave this right here:

    Rodriguez – 13 carries, 73 yards, 5.6 yards per carry
    Rose – 10 carries, 22 yards, 2.2 yards per carry

    I don’t know. You can’t just keep putting every year’s best players in the Ring of Honor, or you will run out of space.
