Kentucky -v- florida

Well, as they say, streaks are made to be broken ... and after 31 consecutive losses to the lizards, Kentucky wins, and does so in the swamp.

flurDah has 1 last chance with 9 seconds left on the clock... The Kentucky D gets into the backfield and strips the ball out of Franks' hand just before he throws, which looks like an incomplete pass, but the whistle was not blown ... a Kentucky defender picks up the ball, jogs forward a couple of yards, as he's followed by a gator O-Line man ... the Kentucky player with the ball stops running [so does the gator] and starts to walk towards a ref ... and just as he's about to toss the ref the ball, Coach Stoops waves his arms at him to run for the end zone ... so he does, as the florida line man tackles him at the goal line, he falls n for a TD with 0:00 left on the clock ...

The replay booth Confirms the play is in fact a fumble, as the ball was stripped from Franks hand before his arm came forward, and his forearm lobbed the ball about ten yards where the Kentucky defender picked it up.

Final score; Kentucky 27 - florida 16

First Win vs florida since 1986
First Win in the swamp since 1979

They’re either going to run the ball here or their going to pass it.

That last play was very strange. My original thought was incomplete but replay clearly showed it was a fumble. Good to see Florida lose, even better when it comes at home.

And the announcers got it wrong even when they saw the replay as to how it happened.
As I age it is hard to tell if I am inspired by reasoned passion or arthritic knees; most likely it is arthritic reasoning.

Well, they got it wrong prior to replay, as they said, "That has to be reviewed, because this ones going to be coming back. Franks' are was clearly moving forward."

Admittedly, I thought the same thing ... then the Commentary guys said, "Well, now from that angle, it looks like he may have fumbled the ball. It will all depend on whether he had control of the ball when his arm starts to move forward. And from that look, the ball came free."

So, they didn't homer it for the reptiles.

However, now that you say that, Donovan ... I'd like to hear the recorded game cast from the Gainesville Radio crew. I wonder if they were even able to admit it, after replay confirmed it with proof.

In any event, it would be funny to listen to them crying and excuse making in broadcast after the loss.
