The Big Blue Daily Mail -- Florida Gators Edition

Tomorrow night, the Kentucky Wildcats take on the Florida Gators at the O'Dome in Gainesville.

It's interesting, but if Kentucky is able to win this game, it would be the first time since 2005 that UK has beaten Florida in Gainesville.

Think about that for a minute.

The winningest team in college basketball, first team to 2000 wins, is on a five-year losing streak to an SEC opponent at their place.  Five years.  Not only that, but Kentucky has only beaten the Gators twice in their last ten attempts.  Folks, that is about as futile as Kentucky has ever been against anybody. 

This is the first time since 2005 that Kentucky has been ranked higher than Florida in the national polls.  I doubt if the ESPN commentators will notice all this, but a bit of a rivalry has developed between Kentucky and Florida, and since 2005, the rivalry has been almost as one sided on the basketball floor as on the football field.

Needless to say, I think UK fans would love to get a measure of redemption by sticking it to Florida for a change.  Tomorrow, we get our best chance in years to hand the Gators an "L" in their own gym.

The news follows the jump.
