I have learned to keep my emotions in check when it comes to UK football. KY football is great at ripping your heart out. Last night's game - typical.
On 3rd-and-five and not trusting the freshman Newton to pass with so much at stake, you'd expect Cobb back in the Wildcat, right? Instead, Newton ran a sweep around right end for two yards. At a time when the football gods put victory in UK's grasp, Kentucky had to settle for a game-tying field goal with only 33 seconds left.You know the rest. The game went to overtime. Tennessee won 30-24. And as the ESPNU announcers reminded us at least 47 times, KY has not beat TN in now, 25 years!Hey, but we are going to a bowl, along with 63 other teams. My guess is it will be the "Mediocre Bowl" but at least it will be another opportunity for KY fans to get back on the roller coaster that is KY football.
