Mark Stoops unloads on question asking why he used late timeout vs. Georgia: ‘That’s a stupid question’
Alright I've taken this situation from a whole different perspective. UK still has a (very small) chance at the CFP. They have 5 favorable games and they can be 11-1. Good chance Bama loses to UGA for 2 losses. If UK has the ability to say they went into Athens, scored 2 TDs on that defense, and possibly get back their starting NT and WR2, why shouldn't they be in contention for a top 4 spot? I doubt he takes that TO if it was an incomplete pass, but they needed time to set up a play and in the long game, it very well may pay off. Also I've never heard any fanbase complain about a team they're beating by 20+ points call a TO to score at the end. Why do you even care?
Not to mention they needed PSU losing their QB1 to claw back and win that game at home.
So you only win by 21? lol I still think the one thing keeping Kentucky from being elite is depth and we're hurting this week. Several big guys up front and WR2. I'm hoping it's a good game but know this is a very tall order.
Well this comment aged poorly. Maybe stick to what you know?
Shhh we need all the bulletin board material we can get. None of this truth stuff you speak of, Brick. Haha.
Hope not. Just got tix for my son and I Saturday. It'll be his first UK football game. First row behind the UK bench. We'll be loud no matter what!
Let me ask you a question then. You assume we would get the first down. That is far from a given on a play the entire stadium knows you're going to run it. If you don't get that first down. Still gonna defend his play calling? I agree that getting the first down SHOULD end the game. But getting a FG does end the game. They literally have 2 score twice in 2 minutes. It's not remotely a bad choice. It's literally the normal and expected call. You're the one advocating a play call far from the norm.
I'm sorry but there is not any world where you don't take points in that situation. It is a short FG and blocked FGs are rare. It literally ends the game with 2 min left. If you go for it and get the first down you still have to run plays and risk a TO or having to kick a FG again. There is nothing that would suggest you shouldn't make it a 2 possession game with 2 minutes left. Ever. You sound ridiculous even suggesting it.
Always a few, zous. Good game though and good luck on the rest of the year!
I don't think he was saying he has been an issue. I think he's just saying that for you to win he has to run well. If not, it won't open the passing lanes. Honestly it's a pretty common key to victory for like every team out there.
I mean way to hit the UK game on the head.

Everything in me wants to laugh at this, but I've been a Kentucky fan way too long to even remotely jinx that laugh. *sigh*
TigerTD, I think his responses were to the commenter before you, not you since you didn't bring up the titles, as was my comment. Agreed on the UK/Mizzou/USC comment. I do feel the next few years with Mizzou vs us will be home team being the favorite and likely winner.
Mizzou fans hanging on to those 2 SEC East titles from a decade ago is like IU basketball fans hanging onto their national prominence from the 1980s. We get it. You won 2 East titles. Congrats. Seriously, everyone laughed when you joined the SEC and you promptly shut them up. But ignoring the fact that you've done not much of anything since then AND lost 5 of the last 6 to us does not equal "a little perspective". Again I'm not touting us as some juggernaut that you should bow down to. I just don't understand the over confidence of Mizzou fans with this game...especially with it being at UK.
zousmc, I think you're forgetting that in 2019 you were beat by 22, not the last second call in 2018. Either way, don't give the refs a reason to throw the flag and it wouldn't have been an issue.
I don't know, but I've experienced it A LOT both online and in person (I have a friend in MO I visit for a lot of our games there). They literally have 1 win in the last 6 and they suddenly think we're an easy W. Not to mention last year they were coming off a bye/postponement and we were on our 5th SEC game in a row. I'm not guaranteeing we'll win... far from it.. but man outright confidence they exude with so little to back it up the last half decade is astounding to me.
Yup, that'll hit you in the feels.
