    1. Take the W and burn the film
    2. Blakely coming off the bench for the 4th down stop against UK was a near carbon copy of Michael Whitehead's heroics in '87
    3. Go Vols and Thank God for JG

    Edit: player corrected. Thanks kpt

    Think that was Jaquan Blakely with that last stop.

    I'm really [uck fay]ing happy for our dumbass QB.

    Him sticking around to rewrite the script (after we wanted to banish him to Rutgers) is [uck fay]ing awesome.

    Also I demand a firing for the 12 men on the field out of a timeout.

    JG is something. I don't know if there has ever been a player I've disliked, respected, not respected, and kinda liked all at the same time.

    I am glad we won, but I second the need for looking into that 12 men thing. that's just not acceptable coming out of a timeout

    I mean, he can still head to Rutgers once we can Bailey's name on a LOI, but he's going to get us bowl eligible this year, so thanks to him for that.

    He should be fired simply for Kumar pitching in Nashville and not Knoxville.

    I agree but we have freshmen all over the place and injuries and I think a young one went out there for a package when he wasn't supposed to be.

    You’re right. Probably ought to expel some players, too.

    1st half we muffed a punt.
    Couldnt stay inbounds on a pick 6. Then couldnt score after it.
    Couldnt get off the field on Defense.
    Give up 13 points.

    2nd half we fumble a handoff with the lead
    We get off the field better but still not well.
    But find a way to shut them out.

    Maurer wasnt terrible but getting in an early hole wasnt optimal and just a really bad spot.
    JG stepped in and got it done through the air and on the ground.
    Bituli was a man again on D.

    Heal up. No reason not to make a bowl now. Both games a winnable

    Kentucky’s defense is good, but we made them look really good. Our D? They had one touchdown drive, and it was aided by penalty. They were going for it on every 4th down and they still couldn’t score. We had some pretty dumb mistakes, but still, that’s a nice performance on that side of the ball.

    I’ll believe we play half decent in CoMo when I see it, but this team is a lot better than last year and is going into a bye with a shot at 7-5 and an expectation of a bowl

    The UK DT throwing the ball into the air after the game ended was classic.

    I noticed a UT OL chasing after a UK player after the game. Was that the same guy.

    The run JG had on 3rd down where he went around a huge block by Tim Jordan was a huge play in the game. I think we scored pretty quickly after that...but as much talking down I've done on JG tonight he definitely earned some big time respect for a couple of the runs he had, another being the one to ice the game, he wasn't going out of bounds on that play, awesome job.
