If you want to wallow in the win....


The win against Auburn seemed like more than just a win for the Cats. This win could be looked back as an epiphany for Kentucky football, referenced as the point the Kentucky football program took the "next step" in developing into a consistent program.

I've been known to overlook obvious warts (playcalling, recruiting, special teams coaching, etc.) in my irrational exuberance view of our program but last night's win could propel Kentucky along much as the turnaround after our blowout by LSU of a few years ago. No question Kentucky still has a ways to go but, for the moment, I just want to revel in this win.

Below are some links to help save you combing the web trying to get your fill of what folks are saying about the effort our team put forth. It was a chilly night in Alabama among a hostile crowd when so many things could have made a loss explainable.

For extra wallowing ESPNU is rebroadcasting the game at 12:00 ET. Add more links in the comments.

First the open thread from the Auburn side of the game. What makes this interesting is they give a quasi play-by-play from which you can monitor their emotions as the game progresses.

A little bit from the local paper. While there be sure to track down the video clips from Locke, Cobb and Brooks.

A view from the other side of the field.

A dry write-up from the Auburn Athletics site. Guess they really can't provide much editorial content. Just the facts ma'am.

Some Alabama paper write-ups here, here, here, here and here

The standard dry write-up from ESPN.

It wasn't a bowl win but it sure felt like one. I guess it has just been a long wait for a win since the L'ville game.
