There's not much really left to highlight about the disastrous UK-Florida game on Saturday, so this is about the last you'll be hearing of it. The status is that Tebow has a concussion but should be okay, Rich Brooks is still taking the blame for the failure of the team to even remotely compete, and contrary to rumor the Alabama game this coming Saturday has not been postponed due to the unnatural pain and suffering inflicted on our proud university by the Gator football team. We'll be there, for whatever comes.
I will be doing some stuff with the 'Bama blog on SB Nation this week, so you can look forward to that. It is always kind of cool when we play the Crimson Tide, because they are quite possibly the only fans I know of that are as passionate about their team as Kentucky fans are, even if it is in different sports. We'll have lots more on the Tide during this week.
Now, for the news.

Well, I have no idea what actually happened here. I suppose I'll have to trust Brooks' judgment, although I reserve the right to change my mind based on the outcome of the legal case.
Tim Tebow should not have been in the game | The Courier-Journal
Tim Tebow should have been on the sideline, helmet off, left hand wrapped around a cold cup of water, smile twisting across his rugged face, mugging for the national TV cameras.
I'm reluctant to second-guess Meyer on that. It was not exceptional for Tebow to be in the game at that point.

Brooks teleconference notes
Brooks is still blaming himself for the team’s poor start against the Gators. The Cats have been slow getting out of the gate several times offensively in the past two seasons and Brooks said he’s considering changing some things up. He’s considering altering UK’s pre-game routine and letting the first-team offense face the first-team defense more in practice this week.
Whatever. As long as it works.

Perkins says brawls are ‘a black eye’ for KU - Kansas City Star
Kansas has become fair game for ridicule by rivals and recruiting opponents, and all it can do is take it. Told that Kentucky basketball coach John Calipari and football coach Rich Brooks had communicated something to the effect of this doesn’t happen at our school, all Perkins could say is, "I respect that. If it doesn’t happen at other schools, great. I can only comment on what happened at our school."
