How do you explain the almost inexplicable attendance and exuberance around UK’s spring game.
THEY’RE “SCERIDT”! The spring game was more of a self-consoling support group than a pep rally.
They were reassuring themselves that the faith that they have placed in an untested football coach and the “Tawinns” will be enough to catch up with the school that is “Miles Ahead”.
BBN has always convinced themselves that they are far superior in basketball, despite the fact that most of their titles were earned 60+ years ago when basketball was a white only sport. Since integration (I hope we would all agree this is the modern era) the actual results are very similar, 9 final 4’s & 3 NC’s for UL, 9 final 4’s & 4 NC’s for UK. In football they have oxymoronically taken solace that being the de facto homecoming opponent in the nation’s best football league somehow made them superior.
Now they are forced to look down the road and see “little brother” living in a palatial palace and surpassing them in almost every meaningful measure. We took their crown in basketball, owned them in football and dominated a team they predicted and prayed would destroy us in the Sugar Bowl. Then the best AD in the country convinced one of the hottest football coaches in the country to stay put, and to top it all off, we are moving to a league that will strengthen our position in every sport.
Coach Stoops MAY beat WKU this year and elevate UK from door mat to middle of the bottom tier in the SEC in a few years, and the “Tawinns” MAY deliver a championship, and the tax payers MAY foot the bill for facilities upgrades, but all this will just put them in the same tax bracket as “Little Brother”
THEY WILL SAY THEY AINT “SCERIDT”, BUT THEY’RE “SCERIDT”
